If you aren’t already reaping the benefits of vitamin C in your skincare routine, then what are you waiting for? Believe us when we say that there are very few ingredients that make your skin look as good as vitamin C can. One of our skincare hero ingredients, vitamin C does everything from brightening the skin, evening out pigmentation, and protecting your complexion from free radicals. Although there are lots of serums out there (check out our faves here), one of the easiest ways to slot vitamin C into your skincare routine is via a face cream. So, we’ve brought you our favourites so that you can try them out for yourself and see what all the fuss is about.
Freck Rich Bitch Cactus & Vitamin C Moisturiser
As if we weren’t already sold on this moisturiser thanks to the name, the formula really packs a punch too. The Freck Rich Bitch Cactus & Vitamin C Moisturiser is the ideal face cream for literally any skin type. The creamy texture feels rich yet light on the skin, doesn’t clog pores, and leaves your complexion feeling silky smooth. Packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin C, as well as cactus to intensely hydrate, this is the perfect does-it all moisturiser that you need in your routine. Plus, the tube is huge and lasts for ages – even better.
