About The Brand

Dermalogica has been around since 1983. Throughout the years, the brand has been able to formulate a wide range of products that can address various skin care issues- from skin aging, breakouts and dry skin.

Dermalogica products are now being sold in over 80 countries across the globe.

Main Ingredients

Dermalogica Vitamin C serum is packed with potent ingredients that work really well against hyperpigmentation. It contains a unique blend of Oligopeptides, Zinc Glycinate and algae to diminish your existing blemishes and prevent new ones from forming on your skin.

The product has no fragrance or parabens that can trigger any sensitivity reactions.

Uses and Effects

Dermalogica C-12 Pure Bright Serum works really well in brightening the skin and improving its clarity. It’s non-drying and leaves a velvety soft feel once it’s been absorbed.

In terms of its effects, most of its users liked that it’s capable of delivering quick results. Some of them experienced improvement after two to three applications.

Although it won’t be able to get rid of all your blemishes right away, the product can minimize their appearance so that they become less and less noticeable. As for breakouts, the product didn’t trigger acne in most of its users.


The product comes with no fragrance, which is a positive thing if you’re prone to skin breakouts. It spreads on easily and doesn’t require a long time to get absorbed.

How To Use

The serum is best applied after cleansing the skin. You can use it twice daily, depending on your skin’s tolerance.

If you need to use another product after it, make sure to let it dry completely first.


You get 50mL of product when you buy this Dermalogica vitamin C serum. Although it comes with more product, it still doesn’t come cheap.
