So when I came across this vitamin C face serum ($20), I obviously had to investigate why it boasted 8,500+ reviews on Amazon. It claims to reduce pores and breakouts, target dark/sun spots, and generally make your skin look brighter — all of which sounds pretty darn great to me.

The all-natural, cruelty-free(!!!) serum is made with a plant-based formula, so it's packed with a combination of aloe vera, organic jojoba oil, and witch hazel to make your skin silky soft.


So, do these statements actually hold up? The short answer: YES! Its customer reviews are simply ~glowing~. The product clearly helps reduce breakouts:

"I bought this product about a month ago and I use it at least once a day, sometimes twice. I started noticing a difference in my skin within a week! For the record, I have terrible skin. It's red, blotchy, uneven, and on top of that I would get terrible breakouts. I chose to post some before-and-after pictures because even though my skin is still not perfect this product has helped A LOT! It helped reduce the redness of my breakouts within a few days of using it, and I'm convinced that it has also helped prevent more breakouts. This past month I've only had about two bad pimples (which is great for me since I used to get a new pimple every couple of days) but other than that my face has been doing great! The top two photos were taken the day I got the product, and the bottom two photos are the results after about a month of using the product!" —Amazon Customer

How about sun spots? Check.

"My skin feels bright! My blotchiness and sun spots on my cheeks are fading, and I am SO happy with the results after only two weeks! Can’t wait to update with the results in a few more weeks!" —Sheri

And pesky dark circles? Consider them gone.

"I am 23 years old and a medical student with very TIRED, acne-prone, and dull skin. I have struggled with acne throughout my entire adolescent and adult life. I have used many products all over the market — including Proactiv, Proactiv+, birth control, and nearly every drugstore product you can think of. Some things will keep my acne at bay, but...years of heavy chemicals trying to treat my acne has definitely hurt the integrity of my skin. I have new fine lines, wrinkles, HEAVY bags, and dark circles. If you care about your skin, you should not hesitate in purchasing this serum. My skin is still not perfect. I do have a few blemishes that will pop up, but as for my skin has helped tremendously. These are my TWO-WEEK results using this serum. Yes. I said it... TWO WEEKS." —Allie Carter

Basically, this face serum does it all. It can be applied day or night, so just lather this on and let it go to work — all you have to do is sit back and relax, my friends.
