Vitamin C is known for its skin brightening properties and is often used by cosmetologists to help their clients get rid of unwanted freckles, sun damage, acne scars, and other discolorations. I have a few discolorations of my own on my face and back, that I would be thrilled to get rid of, so I finally bit the bullet and decided to try out a Vitamin C serum.

The brand is mostly known for their supplements, but they recently ventured into the world of skincare and introduced their first topical product. Eu Natural claims that Clarity Vitamin C Serum “is an organic formula which contains a potent antioxidant blend of organic vitamin C, vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, and herbal extracts. Combined, these ingredients help to stimulate the production of collagen for a fresh, youthful, radiant appearance.”
This serum comes in a bottle with a separate dropper, that can be screwed on like a cap. I like the droppers because that way I can easily control the amount of product I need to dispense. The liquid inside is murky off-white color, and has a very faint bitter citrusy fragrance.
The company recommends using Clarity Vitamin C Serum in the morning. Three-four drops was all that I needed to fully cover my face and neck, because this water-like serum spreads well. It absorbs quickly, and leaves virtually no sticky film on the skin, which is always nice.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, and it’s recommended to be used in the AM routine [remember: antioxidans for AM, retinoids for PM], but don’t forget to always follow up with a good moisturizer with high SPF, because your skin can become extra sensitive to the sun.
After using Clarity Vitamin C Serum for a week I noticed slight changes in the appearance of my freckles and acne scars – they appeared slightly brighter and the skin in the area more even toned than before. For Vitamin C products, one week is usually all it takes to start seeing the difference, and my results were right in line with what I expected of this serum. I will continue using it as a spot treatment until my scars fade to a level I’m comfortable with, and then switch back to my usual product, because as much as I like this one, I feel like I shouldn’t overuse it, because it’s pretty potent.
Eu Naturel Clarity Vitamin C Serum worked as expected to effectively make my acne scars less visible after just one week. It’s a concentrated product, so a little will go a very long way, but personally I won’t be using it in my daily routine, instead I will reserve it to treat future hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone after they occur. Don’t forget to always apply a moisturizer with high SPF if you are using any Vitamin C skincare during the day.
