Lancôme Is Launching Its First-Ever Vitamin C SerumDecember 21, 2018
Ask any beauty editor or dermatologist what topical antioxidant ingredient they recommend looking out for and chances are vitamin C will be mentioned. This is because vitamin C boasts skin benefits that are really, really worth it. Among those benefits? Skin that’s softer, and appears visibly brighter.
By now there are more vitamin C serums, concentrates, and creams on the market than we could count. Some do not have high concentrations of the ingredient or the product may come in a transparent bottle. Since vitamin C can break down in sunlight, any product containing this ingredient should be in a dark bottle to ensure prolonged efficacy. As board-certified dermatologist, and Skincare.com consultant, Dr. Michael Kaminer once told Skincare.com, some vitamin C products aren’t backed by enough science. His recommendation? Find one that is. And that’s precisely where we’d like to draw your attention to Lancôme’s upcoming vitamin C product launch: Visionnaire Skin Solutions 15% Vitamin C Night Concentrate. Read on to find out how Visionnaire Skin Solutions 15% Vitamin C Correcting Concentrate can benefit your skin.
What Is Lancôme Visionnaire Skin Solutions 15% Vitamin C Correcting Concentrate?
The Lancôme Visionnaire Vitamin C Correcting Concentrate is one of the newest additions to Lancôme’s Visionnaire product line. The formula boasts 15% pure vitamin C, as well as hyaluronic acid, and jasmonate derivatives. It’s the first of its kind for Lancôme, which is why the upcoming launch is particularly exciting. Equally exciting is the product’s benefits, which we’ll get into next.
What Are the Benefits of Lancôme Visionnaire Vitamin C Correcting Concentrate?
Vitamin C has been a favorite in skin care for quite some time. It boasts a variety of benefits, among them including brightening the skin’s appearance as well as helping to provide antioxidant protection. It also (as the name implies) happens to be the star ingredient of the Lancôme Visionnaire Vitamin C Correcting Concentrate. The formula helps improve the look of skin so it appears refreshed and feels softer. With continued use over time, you can expect to see a complexion that looks revitalized, skin firmness that feels improved, and a more even-looking skin tone.
We haven’t gotten our hands on the formula just yet, but in a consumer perception survey of 52 participants, 83% agreed their skin looked more radiant after 10 days of use nightly in a 4-week study.
How to Use Lancôme Visionnaire Vitamin C Correcting Concentrate
Many vitamin C serums are directed to be use in the morning in tandem with broad-spectrum sunscreen. However, this particular formula should be applied in the evening and followed with broad-spectrum sunscreen in the morning. To use, place 3 to 5 drops of the concentrate into your hand and apply onto a clean, dry face. Allow it to sink in and then follow with your night cream.
