vitamin C serums (3)

SOME MORE, BUT MORE EXPENSIVE AND/OR INDECENTLY OVERPRICED

  • Less decent: $40.00 – 120.00++ for 1 oz
  • Includes some more expensive ones that lots of people use and like, FYI.
  • Includes all that contain a decent-looking percentage of vitamin C, and declare that percentage (those that don’t, or that don’t declare the percentage, appear in the next post)
  • Many of these also include fragrance
  • Some may be animal tested (check out the manufacturers for yourself). SkinCeuticals definitely is. It and the others are brands I don’t use and am not interested in because they’re overpriced and unsuitable for my kind of skin.
  • I’m listing them here as, in all fairness, they do actually do what they say on the box, that is: be actual vitamin C serums; and listing them in case you have some reason for preferring these brands (discounts, matchy-matchy disorder, etc.)
  • For comparison (and cheaper alternatives): see vitamin C serums (1), most of which (and all the LAA ones) are under $25.00, plus a dupe of SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic for $100.00 less than the original.

BETTER / LESS-BAD OPTIONS, PRICEWISE

Around about the $40.00 mark; near-misses for Top Dog First Post status.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST

Some more vitamin C, from the FDA c/o Wikipedia (click image for link). For consumption, especially things like chili peppers which are not a good idea for applying to skin:
