I'm a sucker for vitamin C serums. The powerhouse ingredient can do it all, from treating hyperpigmentation to addressing my preventative anti-aging concerns. As someone who deals with dark spots and uneven skin tone, a good vitamin C serum has become a staple in my skin-care routine, and I'm always on the hunt for the best ones. That's why I was excited to try out the newly launched Herbivore Nova 15 percent Vitamin C + Turmeric Brightening Serum ($64), and I was shocked at how effective yet gentle it is.

I recently discovered I have fairly sensitive skin, so finding a vitamin C serum that's potent enough to brighten and fade my hyperpigmentation but without causing irritation has been a journey. One thing about Herbivore's Nova Serum is that it's packed with active ingredients meant to tackle dark spots and uneven skin tone, including 15 percent THD vitamin C, a highly stable form of vitamin C, turmeric root extract, an anti-inflammatory, and arbutin. All three ingredients are known to brighten the appearance of dark spots.

I used this serum for 15 days and fell in love with the rich texture and how it made my complexion look radiant and more even-toned. It now has a permanent home in my skin-care routine. Keep reading for my in-depth review, how I used it, and a closer look at my before and after photos.
