Brighter and tighter skin isn’t a thing of dreams thanks to The Hero Project’s Vit C-30 Brightening Serum.

The Hero Project Vit C Brightening Serum Review Hero Project is a unique beauty concept that takes our favourite beauty products and refines them to make the best products we love to use. This Vitamin-C Brightening Serum helps us easily achieve glowing, brighter and younger-looking skin.

The powerful vitamin C serum is made with 30% ethylated L-Ascorbic Acid (one of the highest amounts to make into a product).

How it benefits your skin

  • Helps to improve the appearance of existing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Protects from further skin damage
  • Antioxidant protection
  • Skin brightening
  • Restores clarity
  • Improves skin suppleness
  • Gives skin an overall evenness and tightening effect

The Hero Project Vit C Brightening Serum Review Acid

So without going too much into science, we thought we would explain the ethylated L-Ascorbic Acid a bit more. Ascorbic Acid (aka vitamin C) in its purest form is highly unstable; meaning it reduces its effectiveness over time. The Hero Project have therefore included a high level of stabilised vitamin C in Vit C-30, which maximises its effectiveness over time. This acts directly on the skin without needing the help of unpleasant solvents (which aren’t always the best option as they can strip the skin of its moisture and can be irritating).


Skin looks brighter, protects skin, skin looks more even, excellent ingredients, absorbs beautifully into skin, no sticky residue, beautiful packaging


There can be a tingle when you apply this to skin, it was only very slight on us, but some people might fnd this uncomfortable - we love how it feels like the serum is getting to work.

Bottom Line

The Hero Project’s Vit C-30 Brightening Serum is a true hero beauty item, the skin-loving serum is packed with ingredients that all benefit the skin and help it look brighter and younger.

The serum is light and feels lovely on the skin, absorbing well and leaving no sticky residue. After just a few days you’ll notice your skin looks clearer and more radiant and over time it’ll help fight ageing signs thanks to the antioxidants working against free radicals.

Restore clarity, improve skin suppleness and provide overall evenness and a tightening effect to boot.

Some people might not like the slight tingling effect when you apply this product, that’s because of the active ingredients, but it’s definitely not uncomfortable, and it feels like the serum is really getting to work.

From its antioxidant protection to skin brightening and anti-wrinkle effects, this serum is definitely one to have in your skincare routine.
