Vitamin C serums became popular in 2014 and 2015. Some people are allergic to high percentage of vitamin c. I thought I should make a list starting from 5% to the highest conentration. It is best to start low and gradually work your way up so your skin won’t get irritated.
I included their descriptions and ingredients to help you decide. You can analyze them on CosDNA.com. They have a generator and all you have to do is to copy & paste the ingredients list. Btw, You can easily order these online or you can go in-stores for Mario Badescu.
