It's no secret that Hailey Bieber is somewhat of a skincare buff. She also regularly waxes lyrical about the skin-soothing powers of Dr Barbara Sturm's skincare line. So it perhaps comes as no surprise that the latest addition to her skincare routine is Sturm's latest The Good C Vitamin C Serum.
Hailey spread the word with a photo on Instagram Stories, accompanied by a heart-eye emoji. Consequently, it's storming up the charts for the best vitamin C serum.
The serum in question takes a different approach to many other vitamin C products on the market. Rather than flood skin with a high concentration of vitamin C, Dr Sturm believes that 5% is the sweet spot to brighten, improve the look of hyper pigmentation and boost collagen production - all without potentially impairing the protective skin barrier and leading to inflammation.
“I developed The Good C Vitamin C Serum in response to clients who wanted the radiance- boosting effects of Vitamin C in an optimum concentration, without damaging skin barrier function or causing sensitivity," explains Dr Sturm. "My formulation combines the right chemistry of Vitamin C with surrounding ingredient science to boost the skin and provides antioxidant properties that protect from free radicals and daily environmental stress while combatting pigmentation. Regular usage results in a complexion that’s healthy-looking, fresh and radiant.”

To that end, Hailey's new vitamin C go-to contains three different forms of vitamin C - including Kakadu plum, a potent fruit source of plant-based vitamin C. The serum also contains zinc, which possibly explains why even those with typically finicky skin are reporting zero reactions, as well as hydrating hyaluronic acid.
At $145 The Good C Vitamin C Serum isn't cheap but, as they say, you get what you pay for. And if that's well-behaved skin and Hailey's perennial glow, we're in.
