As someone who has struggled with hyperpigmentation most of my life, I'm no stranger to vitamin C , as it's my top ally when I want brighten up my complexion and fade dark spots . But, if there was one common side effect I don't love, it would be that these serums are all varying degrees of sticky. Sure, some are less so than than others, but I can't name a single one in my collection that doesn't at least have a little tackiness to touch.
Of course, by its name alone, when I first spotted the new Origins GinZing Into the Glow Brightening Serum , I assumed there would be (a form of) vitamin C in it. Still, I had to double-check the label the very first time I tried it: It felt nothing like my other serums. Ahead, see what makes this product different, and why it's my top recommendation for anyone who wants powerful brightening power . . . but can't stand stickiness.
About the Origins GinZing Into the Glow Brightening Serum
Once I identified the type of vitamin C in this Origins GinZing Into the Glow Brightening Serum ($44), I began looking into what makes it different than the others I've seen in the past. I found that, when compared with L-ascorbic acid , this lightweight serum's tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate is a more stable form that doesn't exfoliate as much, is often less irritating, and is oil-soluble so it easily penetrates skin, too.
All those things were true for me I didn't see any redness or peeling, and I couldn't even tell I was wearing it when I touched my face. My complexion also looked plumper — most likely thanks to hyaluronic acid — and, while the product smells like a big glass of orange juice, there's actually a dose of caffeine and green coffee seed extract to support cell turnover in there as well.
