The Skincare Product That’s Been Brightening UP My Life | Garnier Vitamin C Anti-Dark Spots & Brightening Serum Review

Hey everyone! 

Welcome to a brand new blog post! I thought that today I would talk to you about a skincare product that I have been loving lately.

‘Our Vitamin C Anti-Dark Spot Serum is enriched with a potent mix of [3.5%] Vitamin C*, Niacinamide & Salicylic Acid, to reduce the appearance of dark spots and enhance glow, along with Lemon Extract, a powerful superfood well known for its brightening properties. The formula has been carefully blended to provide dark-spot action without being heavy or greasy on the skin.

All Garnier products globally are officially approved by Cruelty Free International under the Leaping Bunny Programme, the leading organisation working to end animal testing worldwide, and the recognised Cruelty Free Gold Standard.’ - Garnier UK. 

The texture of this product is quite interesting. It’s light yet not runny. It’s moisturising but not greasy. 

When I squeezes some of the product out from the pipette, I noticed that it didn’t run all over the place which I like as it means I don’t have to be super anxious that I’m going to slightly tilt my hand and have serum not only run all down myself but in essence waste product that my skin could be enjoying. With some serums that I have used in the past, they have promised to be light yet have took ages to sink into the skin which is a pain for me as I have a tendency to rush and multitask when it comes to skincare sometimes. This mainly has a tendency to happen in the morning more than anything. 

The scent of this product was a quite unusual one for me. Most Vitamin C products that I have used in the past normally come with quite a strong Orange heavy scent to them but this did not. Instead Garner chose to go with more of a floral scent for this product. As stated above, the scent confused me a bit but as soon as I used it I quite liked it. Soft, delicate and floral. When I applied this superb serum to my skin, the scent dissipated  into my skin quite well which I adored and when layering with other slightly scented skincare the scents blended well together.

After using this serum for a while, I did notice a difference. I suffer from dry, dull and stressed skin which can lead to acne breakouts sometimes. Whilst using this product I have noticed a reduction in the amount of breakouts that I have which is due to the Niacinamide and Salicylic Acid that is featured in this product. After using this serum for a few months, I have noticed that my skin does look more vibrant and is now glowing for the gods which I have been in need for a while. After University and a tough time, I noticed that my skin was lacking in vibrancy so to find something that is easy to find in drugstores in my local city and is affordable is pretty amazing to me. 

Would I buy this again? Oh definitely, I’ll definitely be buying this. I am close to finishing a bottle of this sublime serum so once I am done with it I’ll definitely be restocking! I mean, it does wonders for my skin, is reasonably priced compared to some of the other Vitamin C serums on the market in the UK and is easy for me to stock up on when I need it. 9/10. 

(At the time of writing this post which is the 26th of June 2023, Garnier Vitamin C Anti-Dark Spots & Brightening Serum is on offer at Boots. When you use your Advantage Card, you can grab this perfect product for £8.50.)
