Vitamin C and Me: A Summer Skin Favourite

Do your skin concerns span across dryness, dullness, early aging, pigmentation and lack-lustre? Obviously, we don’t mean you’ll have all of them (although some of you may!), but if you’re ticking the box for any of them, stumbling across Vitamin C may be a game-changer... 



This powerful antioxidant has transformed so many peoples skincare routines, brightening dull complexions and helping to boost collagen to name just a few benefits.

To let you discover it for yourself, we’ve popped a Vitamin C powerhouse product - the Murad Vita C Exfoliating Facial (10ml) RRP £11- into our July ROCCABOX beauty box, so you’ll get the experience Vitamin C via a brilliant product!

Firstly, here’s everything you need to know about the benefits of Vitamin C in your skincare:

The Marvels of Vitamin C

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is celebrated in the skincare world for its numerous benefits:
  1. Brightening Powerhouse: Vitamin C is renowned for its ability to brighten the skin. It inhibits melanin production, which helps to fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation, leading to a more even skin tone.
  2. Anti-Aging Benefits: This potent antioxidant fights free radicals—unstable molecules that can damage skin cells and accelerate aging. By neutralising these harmful agents, vitamin C helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  3. Collagen Booster: Collagen is essential for maintaining skin's firmness and elasticity. Vitamin C plays a crucial role in collagen synthesis, helping to keep skin plump and youthful.
  4. Protection Against Sun Damage: While not a substitute for sunscreen, vitamin C can enhance your skin's defense against UV rays and environmental stressors. It also helps repair the damage caused by the sun, such as sunburn and photoaging.

Discovering Murad Vita-C Exfoliating Facial


The Murad Vita-C Exfoliating Facial, in a deluxe travel size (10ml) RRP £11, is one of the superstar products in our July box - themed around Sunshine + Self-Care - to perfectly complement your Summer skincare routine. This dual-action treatment combines the brightening benefits of vitamin C with the exfoliating power of glycolic acid. Here’s what to expect:

  1. Effective Exfoliation: The Murad Vita-C Exfoliating Facial gently sloughs away dead skin cells, revealing a smoother, more radiant complexion. The glycolic acid works in tandem with vitamin C to enhance the exfoliation process without causing irritation.
  2. Superior Absorption: One of the challenges with vitamin C is ensuring it penetrates the skin effectively. Murad's unique formula enhances the absorption of vitamin C, maximising its benefits.
  3. Instant Brightening: With regular use, skin looks more revitalised, and over time, the persistent dullness and uneven tone some of you may experience should begin to fade.

You’ll find that Vitamin C’s benefits are often backed by science and visible results when you do the research, making it an Ingredient in demand across skincare. Here at ROCCABOX, we love incorporating the Murad Vita-C Exfoliating Facial as a skincare ‘first step’, helping to create a fresh, brightened base before applying serum, moisturiser and SPF. 

Our July beauty box is available for you to grab at the subscriber price of £15, or as a one-off purchase price of £22 this July, making it a perfect Summer beauty bundle.
