La Roche-Posay 10% Pure Vitamin C Serum

For anyone looking for high-end skin-care products that don't cost a whole donkey and then some, La Roche-Posay should be top of the list. You can find the popular French pharmacy brand on the shelves of any local drugstore, Ulta, Target, or Walmart—and it's inarguably one of the best and most affordable brands out there for the average shopper. It's also especially beneficial for those who suffer from super sensitive skin, rosacea, or blemishes. (The hydrating gentle cleanser is everything.)

Now that the brand launched a trio of sensitive skin-friendly antiaging serums, there's no reason that youthful, rejuvenated skin should be out of reach for anyone, regardless of skin concern or budget. (We've already given the retinol serum high marks for those with skin that usually cannot handle harsh ingredients.) However, it is La Roche-Posay's 10% Pure Vitamin C Serum that's bound to become a drugstore classic. Consider your skin concerns on the chopping block—dullness, dryness, and dark spots are no match. 

It's no secret that vitamin C serums have been having quite the trendy moment as of late, and for good reason. Bar none, they're the best for totally transforming skin texture, dullness, and signs of aging in one fell swoop. The La Roche-Posay vitamin C serum clocks in at just under $40—a bargain when stacked against its highly concentrated quality. It's composed of 10% pure vitamin C, which makes a huge difference when trying to see quick and noticeable results, as well as salicylic acid that works to smooth out skin texture and help shrink pores. Together, those two ingredients are like a one-two punch to any dullness, and shoppers rave about how much brighter and fresh-faced their skin looks after regular use. 

The reason why it's so much more wearable for sensitive skin types—or anyone who is already using other active ingredients elsewhere in their skin-care routine—is that it comes fortified with neurosensine, which is a favorite ingredient for dealing with irritation or discomfort. (For context, it's often used to calm and treat rosacea.) So while you're applying highly concentrated vitamin C and salicylic acid on your skin, neurosensine works as a buffer to hydrate and soothe your skin. Now that's teamwork. 

If you're looking to revamp your skin-care routine without breaking the bank, this brightening, antiaging serum is going to work hard for your money—trust on that.
