Available exclusively at Kohls, Grassroots Research Labs skin care products are an absolute treat. The Vitamin C power Brightening Cream with SPF 25 is feels like a lux moisturizer priced at a mid-range price.

Grassroots Research Labs: Vitamin C Power Brightening Cream SPF 25 - Description

Grassroots Research Labs: Vitamin C Power Brightening Cream SPF 25 is a 1.7 ounce tub of moisturizer that retails for $32.50. The cream has a slight orange tint with an intoxicating citrus scent to it.

The texture could be described as a medium thickness, and it very quickly absorbs into the skin, leaving no residue or shiny feeling behind.

Who Needs Vitamin C?

Vitamin C is know for its abilities to even out the skin, reducing the appearance of skin discoloration and giving your skin an all around brighter complexion. It also helps fight off future damage to the skin by repelling free radicals.

You might be interested in this product if you are looking to brighten your skin tone and reduce the appearance of skin discolorations or freckles. You might also love this product if you are looking for citrus-scented skin care products. It smells great!

Our Experience Using Grassroots Research Labs: Vitamin C Power Brightening Cream

Lots of moisturizers come our way, and many times we can't finish the bottle before the next finds its way to our bathroom, but with Grassroots Research Labs Vitamin C Power Brightening Cream, we couldn't let it go without draining the entire tub!

First, the citrus scent always is a plus in our book, but this has so many skin benefits besides its lovely scent. First, the SPF in this product is a level 25. With many of today's moisturizers providing SPF 15 protection, it's almost double. That's a good way to start your day.

The anti-oxidant and skin brightening qualities of topical Vitamin C are well known and documented. We used this product all summer long, and definitely noticed a big difference when it came to the amount of freckles visible on our face.

While $32.50 is by far not cheap, you can spend much more on vitamin C products, and because it's sold exclusively at Kohls, you're bound to find a good price with all of the sales the Kohls has on a very regular basis.

Do We Recommend It?

Absolutely. We thoroughly enjoyed this product, and we look forward to trying out more of the Grassroots Research Labs products.

I love Grassroots Vitamin C, Member kchaconas

I've been using this for more than a year now and really love it. It's a great day cream and I'm happy with how it's made my skin so soft. At 56, that's a good thing! Besides C, it's got E and B5 (gotta admit I don't know what B5 does). It also has a really nice scent...light and refreshing.
