How wonderful is getting a killer beauty recommendation from a girlfriend? Even more so when those girlfriends are actually supermodels like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley or Ashley Graham. Now that we’ve celeb-ified our nighttime skincare routine after learning of Gemma Chan’s go-to drugstore retinol, we’re ready for more. And this time? The A-listers’ morning routines are getting a closer look as we explore the brightening vitamin C serums they’re reaching for.
So without further ado, let’s take a virtual squiz into the bathroom vanities of Hollywood’s finest as we reveal the vitamin C serums our celebrities are using and loving…
Ashley Graham – SkinCeuticals
If you’ve spent much time reading up on skin care crowd pleasers, we bet you’ve come across the SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic ($233, Adore Beauty) a few hundred times before. And amongst its growing list of fans is Ashley Graham.
“My dermatologist, Dr. Shereene Idriss, told me about [it]. I started going to her about a year ago because I felt like my skin was starting to look a little dull. My skin was changing, my body was changing, I was getting older but I’m not old-old,” Ashley told The Strategist.
“And she said to me, ‘are you using a vitamin C serum?’ When I said no, she looked at me with pure shock. I got the [C E Ferulic], and now I use it every day. I definitely have seen a difference. It really brightened my complexion. I don’t even use a moisturiser over it sometimes because it’s super hydrating.”
Gemma Chan – L’Oreal Paris
When Glamour asked Gemma Chan to only pick three beauty products to use for the rest of her life, one of the coveted spots went to the L’Oreal Paris Revitalift ($65.95, Priceline). She referred to the vitamin C and hyaluronic acid serum as “amazing” and one that she “would have to have”.
Nicole Kidman – SkinCeuticals
Just like her famous alumni, Ashley Graham, Nicole also loves herself a bit of the SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic ($233, Adore Beauty). “I use vitamin C too, because that does give you some protection long-term,” she told The Skincare Edit of the reasoning behind her inclusion of the all-star ingredient.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley – iS Clinical
Jasmine Tookes – Kora Organics
Jasmine Tookes has revealed her brightening elixir of choice and it’s none other than her pal Miranda Kerr’s Kora Organics Vitamin C Serum ($86, Adore Beauty), she told Grazia. Supermodels supporting supermodels, we love to see it.
Jessica Alba – Honest Beauty
Radiance with a side of hydration, anyone? Each morning, post-cleanse, Jessica Alba reaches for her very own recipe, Honesty Beauty’s Vitamin C Radiance Serum ($29.95, Honest Company), telling The Skincare Edit, “what I love about this vitamin C is that it actually has two hyaluronic acids with it, so it brightens your skin without drying it out.”
Drew Barrymore – Sunday Riley
If you’re looking to condense your skin care regimen into a few very powerful steps, allow Drew Barrymore’s favourite vitamin C oil to point you in the right direction. Speaking to Today, Drew described Sunday Riley’s vitamin C, A, E and K-rich serum, the Juno Antioxidant and Superfood Face Oil ($108, MECCA) as being “one of the first products that made me fall deeply in love with skin care.”
Have you tried any of these vitamin C serums? If not, which one do you use?
