'My skin is more glowy': This top-selling anti-aging serum is down to $22 at Amazon

If you're battling dry, dull skin as winter comes to an end, it's time to get acquainted with vitamin C before spring, well, springs. The popular ingredient can help even out skin tone, minimize signs of aging and promote collagen production. One vitamin C-packed formula, TruSkin Vitamin C Serum, has over 93,000 five-star reviews from Amazon shoppers, and it's on sale for $22, down from its original price of $30.

Formulated to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots, this serum contains vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, witch hazel and jojoba oil.

Why is this a good deal?

A quality skin-care product can easily set you back $50 or more — to say nothing of pricey in-office treatments, which can run well into the hundreds. At nearly 30% off, this $22 serum is a steal in comparison, and would be a bargain even at its full price of $30.

Why do I need this?

TruSkin's plant-based formula has a blend of vitamins C and E that aims to brighten skin, plus hyaluronic acid for moisturizing. It's well-known that hyaluronic acid is a skin-hydrating wonder, thanks to its ability to hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water. When added to the skin, this capability helps it lock moisture deep inside of pores. Hyaluronic can also help stave off signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles and a dull complexion, and helps leave skin with a more plump, youthful look.

TruSkin is also packed with skin-soothing botanicals, such as aloe vera and organic jojoba oil. Many of us have used aloe to calm our skin after a long day in the sun, and jojoba oil is also in the mix to assist to soothe skin while it fights signs of aging.

What reviewers say

Shoppers have put TruSkin Vitamin C Serum to the test, and many say they're loving the results.

"I wish I took before and after photos!" one shared in her review. "Since using this product for a few months now, I have noticed my frown lines, crow's feet, and lines around my mouth are slowly fading away. It keeps my skin taut, and I need this at my ripe age of 42."

"This really works," wrote another shopper. "I am 56 years old and my face saw a lot of sun in my younger years. I've been using the vitamin C serum for about a month on my face, neck and back of my hands. I use it day and night. I’m a huge skeptic when it comes to skin-care, and I’ve tried a lot of different (expensive) products. I have to say I really can see a difference since I’ve been using this product! The quality of my skin is much improved — finer and more even texture, fewer fine lines and it has a nice glow. My neck and hand skin look way better, too"

"Facelift in a bottle," said a 72-year-old user. "Have used this for about a year now, and I couldn't be more pleased ... Nothing pleases me more than for people to think I'm about 10-15 years younger."

"I started using this after noticing how my skin was dull and very textured regardless of using retinol, SPF and remaining diligent with my skincare routine," noted another happy shopper. "Now, my skin is more glowy, my breakouts are calming down, and my skin feels less dry! Highly recommended for the price."

"It tightens up the skin on my face and leaves it nice and smooth," said a final reviewer. "Some reviews said it works on dark circles, but I didn't notice any change. It does not moisturize, but feels fine after applying sunscreen. I didn't notice any scent, which I appreciated."

Tired of heavy creams? This serum is designed not to weigh on skin.
