Hydrating Illuminating Serum

Early & Mature Ageing Skin

Description Summary How to use Key Ingredients Works Well With

pHformula VITA C Serum is a highly concentrated Vitamin C serum that repairs skin damage caused by free radicals, thus preventing cell oxidation and hyperpigmentation. Suitable for early or mature ageing concerns, including acne-prone skin.

Key ingredients include a powerful triple action Vitamin C Complex that visibly brightens the skin while increasing collagen synthesis with encapsulated Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate that brightens the skin with immediate effect. A Peptide complex inhibits inflammatory responses and helps repair damage by stimulating collagen production. A Hyaluronic Acid Complex which includes high molecular weight hyaluronic acid gives an instant boost of hydration and forms an effective skin barrier to prevent transepidermal water loss, together with Glycosaminoglycans, a fundamental component of skin tissue which is skin replenishing. Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract and Jojoba Oil are superior antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties. Sodium PCA is an important skin-identical ingredient and a great natural moisturiser that helps the skin hold onto water and maintain hydration levels.

Dr Webster’s Recommendation: pHformula VITA C Serum is an ingredient-rich serum in the VITA range that offers an innovative tri-complex of Vitamin C along with hyaluronic acid and a unique delivery complex that effectively penetrates the skin to give the skin an instant boost of hydration and radiance. The formulation is a light creamy serum texture with a subtle citrus undertone. Absorbs immediately with no tacky or oily residue left behind.

  • Apply a few drops and massage in light circular movements.
  • After absorption, follow with moisturising cream and eye care.

Just finished my 1st bottle the skin is hydrated and glowing but the pigmentation seems to be darkening. Not sure if I should reorder or change to the vit C moisturiser.

Obsessed with this and genuinely look forward to using it every morning. It has a great consistency and absorbs like a dream. Smells fresh and pretty, and definitely gives the skin a glow! I am a die hard Obagi vitamin c girl, but this product is just as good, if not better in some ways.

I always advocate for Vit C as part of any routine – I highly recommend this product. Always leaves my skin glowy and hydrated.

My skin is glowing, just finished the 1st bottle and definitely ordering. Great product, a must have!

Candice (verified owner) - 3 years ago

Product Rating:

I have almost finished my first bottle of this Vitamin C serum and I have really enjoyed it. It has a lovely, mild/light citrusy scent and a beautiful gel/liquid texture. It almost glitters when you see it come out of the pipette, but this does not show up as glitter on the skin, don’t worry! I’m too old for glitter 🙂

A little goes a long way and it absorbs really well. It might feel initially as if it will dry to a tacky feel, but this goes away after a couple of minutes. After applying to cleansed skin, I usually brush my teeth or get dressed while waiting for the serum to dry completely before applying moisturiser and sunscreen. No pilling, even if I later add my tinted SPF (which I use instead of foundation) over everything.

Can’t say I’ve noticed much of a difference in my skin, but Vitamin C is normally more of a preventative anyway, so I will definitely repurchase.

Michaela (verified owner) - 4 years ago

Product Rating:

I have been using the PH Formula range for a couple of months now. I really really love this range and can not recommend it enough. This serum I particularly love, it’s so soft and smooth on application, fast-absorbing, and just gives the skin such a beautiful, radiant glow. I use this morning and evening as part of my skincare routine. Your skin will love you for this !!!!

Product Rating:

I use this almost daily. I first cleanse, then apply this serum. Once it’s absorbed, I apply moisturiser. It has become a staple in my regime as my beautician is on maternity leave and I cannot attend my regular chemical peels. This serum has left my skin soft and beautifully clear. highly recommended!
