Queen of Skincare: Vya Naturals Vitamin C Serum Review
I’m a fiery fan of Vitamin C, especially topical vitamin C serum for my face and neck. I’ve gone through more bottles of vitamin C serum than glasses of orange juice over the years that I can count. No doubt, it’s one of the most recommended products you’ll find in my skincare arsenal. It works for all skin types and all skin conditions.
And at the beginning of this month, I have a new addition to these recommendations: Vya Naturals Vitamin C Serum – a 100% parabens and sulphate free serum containing 20% vitamin C to reduce uneven skin tone, dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Interested? Read full review to know more about the product.

Contains 20% vitamin C from purely natural sources. Whether being totally natural makes a product more effective is definitely something hard to say but I must say after using the product for two weeks, my skin is feeling fab. It’s happily hydrated and looks more radiant.
Also, the serum feels just like water and you can easily layer multiple products under and over this serum. Works wonderfully in multi-step skincare and makeup regime.
It’s fragrance-free and colourless. So, if you’re allergic to artificial fragrances or strong scents, it’s an ideal skincare serum for daily use. Also, being colourless makes it easy to detect, if the product is oxidized or not. (Oxidized vitamin C turns yellow or brown on oxidization. That is why many skincare brands formulate their vitamin C with a yellow or brown tint to make it hard to detect oxidization).
Contains aloevera and witch hazel extract to soothe sensitive skin. So if you have highly sensitive skin or for some reason react to high concentration of vitamin C, Vya naturals vitamin C serum is ideal for you.
What’s bad about it?
The packaging! – Which, could have been made to look and feel more attractive.
Vya Naturals vitamin C serum is a totally natural anti-aging and brightening serum containing 20% vitamin C. Retailing at INR 1295 for 30 ml, it is great for those looking for more affordable options without compromising on efficacy.

Been hearing great things about it..was hesitant of using Vitamin C on my super sensitive skin for a long time but now I am getting on the bandwagon with a good dose of sunscreen above it 🙂
It’s very beneficial to apply Vitamin C Serum for your skin care. It works on uneven skin tone & pigmentation, Rejuvenate the dull and lifeless skin. The most popular benefit is that it prevents & reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Thanks for sharing so much more about it.
I started using some natural SkinCare products from the Mamaearth store. Most of the products are natural & the products will be customized based on our skin type. While ordering the products, I just tried Mamaearth Coupons offered on the Saveplus site. It worked on my order & I got 15% off on Vitamin C products.
