Vitamin C has become a hugely popular skincare ingredient in recent years.

While some are familiar with the benefits in food or supplements, to boost your immune system and absorb iron, it is also a key ingredient in beauty products too.

There is one in particular that has proved to be a huge hit with shoppers: Eclat's Advanced Vitamin C Serum.

Why we rate it

Eclat's Advanced Vitamin C Serum, which costs just under £8, contains the antioxidant vitamin C and works to help brighten your complexion, protect against free radical damage (which can cause visible signs of ageing), hydrates the skin and smooths and balances the dermis for a glowing complexion.

Unlike some other vitamin C products, this creation is said to be formulated from a stable and potent form of pure vitamin C (sodium ascorbyl phosphate), which claims to be less irritating than products made with ascorbic acid.

The formula contains 20% vitamin C concentration, as well as hyaluronic acid, ferulic acid, jojoba oil, retinol, aloe vera and vitamin E, so it also has soothing properties too.

The serum is said to be non-comedogenic, which means it does not block pores to cause blackheads. Plus, it is vegan, as well as cruelty, paraben and silicon free.

The brand has paid extra attention to detail too, as it is packaged in UV-protective frosted glass bottle to protect the formula.

Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, we look at the price tag. This beauty buy is super affordable and costs just £7.87 from Amazon.

What the reviews say

Eclat's Advanced Vitamin C Serum has garnered over 18,000 reviews from shoppers, 73% of which have rated the product five stars.

Here's what the reviews say:

  • "I have never recommended a face product before and I've tried too many to mention. Im 53 and feeling my age and lockdown has taken its toll. My daughter recommended this to me. After three days my skin is looking fantastic. I wish I had found this product sooner. I couldn't recommend it enough."

  • "Love this product. I've suffered with really bad skin during lockdown and honestly this has been a bit of a miracle worker. After a few days use I can genuinely say acne cleared dramatically and my skin just looked better. I'm really happy with it and will definitely be buying again."

  • "I was very happy with this product, from the first day I used it I felt it got rid of the tiredness look I usually have and also felt it tightened my skin and made it feel a lot firmer."

  • "I used the product to clear my skin round my jaw line. Since going into lockdown, my skin was the worst I ever had. It was beginning to tighten, dry and ache. this serum made a visible difference within a week."

  • "I was sceptical about this product but the serum is very light and it absorbs really nicely into my skin. There is a definite difference to the dark bags under my eyes. As a new mum this is a life saver. I would definitely recommend this."

  • "This product absorbed into my skin really well. I am happy using it in my skin regime as the results have proved it does assist with fine lines."
