'I woke up absolutely glowing': This fan-fave vitamin C serum is down to $8

It helps protect delicate skin from the sun while battling fine lines and dark spots, fans say — wins all around.

We're in the thick of summer, which means we're spending more time in the sun. While it might be great for our mental health, all those UV rays can take a toll on our skin. That's why adding a good vitamin C serum to your skin-care routine is crucial. The good news? This Eclat Skincare Organic Vitamin C Serum is on sale at Amazon for just $8. It's loaded with good-for-your-skin vitamin C, which studies show can improve the appearance of wrinkles and protect your skin against UV damage.

This plant-based formula uses aloe vera juice, witch hazel, jojoba oil, hydrating hyaluronic acid and vitamin C to smooth and protect skin.

Why is it a good deal? 💰

While there's certainly no shortage of skin-care products that claim to tackle dark spots and fine lines, you'd be hard-pressed to find one like this serum for 8 bucks — the lowest price it's been this year. So consider it a steal, since quality skin care, including the best Vitamin C serums, can cost upward of $50 or even $100 these days.

Why do I need this? 🤔

The magic in Eclat Skincare Organic Vitamin C Serum is the concentration of vitamin C. Many other serums on the market contain 15%, which isn't enough to make a difference, or upwards of 22%, which can be more irritating than beneficial. This formula sits pretty at 20%, so it's effective without being overpowering, especially on sensitive or delicate skin. It's also packed with botanical goodies like aloe vera juice, witch hazel and jojoba oil, plus hydrating hyaluronic acid.

What reviewers say 💬

This serum has over 25,000 five-star fans. If you're battling dark spots — whether caused by the sun, aging or acne — some rave reviewers claim the serum can help lighten them.

Pros 👍

Writes one shopper: "This has significantly faded the stubborn dark spot on my forehead, so I'm thrilled about that," she shared. "I also love how this feels on my skin. It's very hydrating with a thick consistency, but it doesn't feel sticky. The ingredients list is great and you can't beat the price."

Others have noticed a smoother face altogether: "Since using this vitamin C serum, I have definitely noticed that my fine lines have significantly reduced around my eyes and forehead," one shopper reported. "The roughness on my cheeks seems to be a lot better. I am in love with this product!"

"Is this a joke? I used this once — once — before bed ... washed my face, applied this serum and finally applied my normal moisturizer and retinol," said a happy shopper. "I woke up absolutely glowing, to the point that people were complimenting me ... My skin is so soft and radiant, I'm terrified that people will catch on to this and it'll run out of stock. How is it possible that a serum could do this? Mind blown."

Cons 👎

Those who are sensitive to fragrances may want to take note — though many call the scent of this product "pleasant" and say that they feel it's light or even not there at all, others aren't huge fans. "It makes your skin glow, and it doesn't get sticky, but the scent is a bit weird," said one reviewer.

Another agreed: "Clearer and brighter skin for sure. Yes, the scent isn’t pleasant, but that's not important to me. You only need to use a little."

Over 25,000 Amazon shoppers love using this serum to help lighten dark spots and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

"I have been using this for just under 30 days now, that's why I waited to do a review," wrote a satisfied shopper. "I wanted to give it a real honest chance. I do find that it has made a difference in my complexion. The lines around my mouth and crow's feet have diminished, as well as the very fine lines on my forehead. I am super, super happy. I have been converted."
