I’m a big tín đồ of La Roche-Posay for their sunscreen and Cicaplast Balm B5, but their vi-ta-min c serum was unknown to me until recently. With so many more “famous” vitamin c serum brands like Skinceuticals or Paula’s Choice, it seems the La Roche-Posay Pure vitamin C 10% Serum has flown under the radar. And oh what a shame because it is a hidden gem!

Overview

What is itThis anti-aging vi-ta-min c face serum leaves skin more radiant, softer, & hydrated. As a result, wrinkles look visibly reduced và skin texture và tone are more even and refined.

Best suited forAll skin types. Combo/oily skin prone to congestion may have a love-hate relationship with this serum, as the salicylic acid is beneficial but the silicones can be a hit or miss. Sensitive skin friendly as long as fragrance isn’t an issue.

Things to lớn noteContains alcohol but isn’t drying or irritating. Also contains fragrance và silicones.

PackagingA tinted glass dropper bottle. Not ideal as vitamin c is prone lớn oxidization & the bottle doesn’t limit air or light exposure.

ScentA noticeable, slightly artificial, citrus scent. Fades once serum is applied.

TextureLightweight & fluid serum. Not sticky at all.

La Roche Posay vitamin C Ingredients

With vitamin c, there are 8 different forms but the most potent and well-researched is Ascorbic Acid (AA), which is the size used here. AA has been shown khổng lồ fade dark spots, boost collagen production & UV protection when worn under sunscreen1,2,3!

5 – 20% is the recommended Ascorbic Acid %, so at 10%, this serum is gentler than most of the other AA options, but it also has a lower potency. If it’s your first time trying AA or if you use other actives, this is a good option.

What’s interesting about this formula is that it doesn’t feature Ferulic Acid for stabilization (though it does still have Vitamin E), instead it features several anti-inflammatory ingredients:

Salicylic Acid, an oil-soluble chemical exfoliant that can help clear out our pores. An excellent ingredient if your skin is prone khổng lồ congestions or blackheads.Acetyl Dipeptide-1 Cetyl Ester (aka Neurosensine) has one study that shows its skin calming benefits, but otherwise it’s not as commonly used4.Adenosine has been shown to help with wound healing and protecting our skin barrier5!

At first you wonder if this combination is any good, but once you give it a chance, you’re obsessed.

For extra hydration benefits, the La Roche Posay vitamin C Serum includes two forms of hyaluronic acid – the larger Sodium Hyaluronate and smaller Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid. Both attract & retain moisture on the skin while the smaller hydrolyzed HA are also anti-inflammatory & can help with skin repair functions6,7!

While alcohol is listed high up, my dry skin has not experienced any discomfort using this face serum. On the contrary this is one of the most hydrating vi-ta-min c serums I’ve ever tried, but if you are sensitive this may not be the best fit for you.
