Vit C Pic 1

La Roche Posay Pure Vitamin C10

La Roche Posay C10 Vitamin C Serum

The benefits of using Vitamin C in your skincare are vast.  There are many properties within it that work well to help with skin texture to name but a few (more details below).  However, finding a formula that doesn’t feel gritty or powdery can be a challenge.  Keeping vitamin c fresh, means it sometimes needs to be formulated in a suspension that can make it feel powdery or dry on application. 

I have made my love for the La Roche Posay B5 Hyaluronic Acid serum no secret, so when this product arrived into my hands, I was more than a little excited.  So, here’s all you need to know.

What are the benefits of Vitamin C in your skincare?

  • Effective antioxidant to protect skin against damaging environmental factors
  • Boost Skins Radiance
  • Improves Skin texture 
  • Reduces Wrinkles & Fine Lines
  • Smooths Imperfections

What did this product do for my skin?

The first thing I noticed was the texture.  Unlike many vitamin c products, this one has a liquid/non powdery feel.  It feels like a serum.  It absorbs into the skin, blends well and sits beautifully under other skincare products.  It doesn’t leave a residue, so you’d hardly notice it’s there.  I’ve been using for about 4 weeks now & my skins texture is better & pores clearer.  Vitamin C is a protective product so while it may not have instant results like other acids, it’s an important part of your routine.

What I like about this product

 As it contains hyaluronic acid, it also plumps the skin which reduces the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles.  Over time, skin can become more glowy and it can help assist in the appearance of ageing.  Environmental factors ravage our skin daily, but Vitamin C helps to put that back to rights, even for sensitive skin.

Key Benefits

  • Protects skin & helps with lack of radiance and texture
  • Tested on sensitive skin
  • Serum formulation, therefore, has a hydrating texture
  • Protects against free radical environmental damage which can break down collagen and encourage wrinkles and sagging
  • Contains salicylic acids to help keep pores clear & hyaluronic acid for hydration

How to use?

Use on clean skin in the morning followed by your moisturiser

Would I repurchase?

Absolutely!  It’s become my favourite Vitamin C serum from the drugstore and will be my everyday product unless it’s toppled from its top spot!

Where can you find it?

It’s available at pharmacies Nationwide including Boots, Meagher’s Pharmacy and Lloyds Pharmacy for €38
