REVIEW: La Roche-Posay Pure Vitamin C10

Header The Moisturizer - REVIEW: La Roche-Posay Pure Vitamin C10
Your morning skincare routine doesn’t include an antioxidant? Vitamin C is my favorite antioxidant because it also helps minimize blemishes, brighten my skin tone and prevent wrinkles. In my review of the La Roche-Posay Pure Vitamin C10 you’ll learn how to use it, where to buy it and something more important: is it effective?


Hello! How is your day going? Today I finally want to talk to you in detail about my Pure Vitamin C10 serum from La Roche Posay, now that I have finished it. You asked me a lot about him, especially after my last informative post in which I talked about vitamin C and how it can help us take better care of our skin. Let’s get to know it!

Vitamin C is one of my favorite ingredients in skincare, without a doubt. Not only is it one of the most effective antioxidants, but it can also provide a gentle exfoliation to achieve a luminous skin, reduce spots and improve tone and texture. In this case, we find a serum that contains 10% of vitamin C and a pH of 5.5 (specifically, among its ingredients we find ascorbic acid, the most effective form of vitamin C). Being a low concentration of vitamin C, I will focus on this product as an antioxidant serum, designed to combat the effects of free radicals, thus preventing premature skin aging.

When they contacted me from La Roche-Posay to try this serum I was really excited. I had been wanting to try it for a long time and, after the summer, I wanted to use vitamin C progressively (you know that it is better to start with products with a lower concentration and gradually increase it so that the skin adapts to use it). As I mentioned on other occasions, I prefer not to use products with vitamin C during the summer, although if they have a low concentration, you do not abuse them, and you protect yourself correctly from the sun, you can continue using it.

The first thing that catches the attention of the product is the packaging. I received it in a cardboard box with a very careful presentation. When opening the container, which is a glass dropper, I found a small problem that has been recurring for the entire time that I have used the product: the dropper tube fails to take the product well, so it spills quite easily (even without applying any pressure). This was very uncomfortable for me, but I think once they solve it, the experience will improve a lot. In general, as I commented in my previous post on vitamin C, products with vitamin C are better when they come in containers that protect them from ultraviolet radiation and air to prevent oxidation, so perhaps a change of packaging would be a good idea.

The serum has a dense and thick texture, the sensation when massaging it on the skin is very pleasant (and that I have used it in my morning routines, for which I generally prefer lighter products). Its color is a soft orange tone, but during the month and a half – two months that I have used it it gradually oxidized until it had an almost brown color.

Among the ingredients of this Pure Vitamin C10 serum we find ascorbic acid, as I have already mentioned, the most studied and potent type of vitamin C. In addition, it also contains salicylic acid (BHA), a great ingredient when it comes to improving the tone and texture of our skin, providing an exfoliation at the surface level and inside the pores. This serum contains perfumes.

As I mentioned before, the low concentration of vitamin C in this serum makes it an antioxidant solution, and in that sense I consider it to have been an effective product. I have had the feeling that my skin was brighter, but I’m not sure I can blame it exclusively on this product. On the other hand, considering its price, I think there are other cheaper antioxidants that can give us an equally positive result. In any case, if you are looking to start using vitamin C, it may be a good option.



As I said, this serum has a relatively low concentration of vitamin C, so I prefer to use it after cleansing and toning, just before moisturizing. I’ve been using it in my morning routines, so, as you know, you’ll have to finish the routine with a good sunscreen.

    Some Youtubers say a 5.5 ph won’t work for vitamin C absorption. I have no idea. What are your thoughts about the ph of this product?

      Hi Kathryn, welcome! 😊

      On my guide on vitamin C I actually speak about its ideal pH (which, as you mention, should be lower than 5.5 for an optimal result). Regarding this particular product, I think of it as a starter antioxidant, but not as an exfoliant 🖤
