Vitamin C is like the OG of the original skincare-saving ingredients. Like hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and retinol, it's one of the few must-haves in any skin-lover's toolkit and something that anyone who has been remotely interested in pampering their skin has bought at some point in their lives. As a powerful antioxidant that eliminates free radicals (think of them as the little evil minions who bring fine lines and wrinkles to your skin), vitamin C protects you against them while boosting firmness and lightening dark spots.

Like anything else essential to your skincare routine, it's hard to nail down the one that works best for you. Yet, if Nordstrom reviewers are anything to go by, Buttah Skin's $39 vitamin C serum is ″the best of the best.″ The serum, made with a mix of ascorbic and ferulic acids (two potent forms of vitamin C), has reviewers absolutely obsessed. It's "an incredible help to healing and reducing dark spots and scars on my face," wrote a shopper.


Other ingredients in the vitamin C serum make it the "skin savior" shoppers describe it as. Green tea leaf extract, the powerful antioxidant for diminishing dark circles, and vitamin A, the powerful retinol for treating fine lines, wrinkles, acne, dullness, and large pores, all combine to smooth out your skin and save it from breakouts that lead to bumps and scars.

This isn't the first time Buttah Skin has been on our radar: The brand has been recommended by none other than Beyoncé herself, and Google searches for Buttah soared by 1,300 percent after Bey put it on her list of Black-owned brands to shop on her website, accompanying her single, "Black Parade."

Glowing reviews for the vitamin C serum on Nordstrom only further prove why the world should just listen to the music and fashion icon on everything. It "transformed my skin in just 10 days," wrote a reviewer. "Scars are lighter than they've ever been and I have tried everything, even microneedling, and nothing has helped."

"Since the mask mandate happened, my face has been breaking out so bad," wrote another shopper. "Buttah saved my skin. Scars are fading away and my skin tone is evening out." It's so good, some even say they're getting compliments from their partners. "I knew this was a winner when within a week, my husband commented on how smooth and glowing my skin looked (without wearing makeup!!!)," a reviewer wrote.

No wonder Buttah Skin's vitamin C serum has hundreds of five-star ratings.
