C15 Super Booster's main goal is to brighten dull skin, and thanks to the 15% concentration of vitamin C, that really is possible… along with a host of other benefits that reduce signs of aging.

Dispensed via dropper, the water-light, fragrance-free formula is suitable for all skin types. It can be applied directly to skin or mixed in with your go-to serum or non-SPF moisturizer. The 15% ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is backed by research showing it improves the appearance of uneven skin tone, minimizes discolorations, and fights the signs of aging all-in-one.

Skin is also treated to several antioxidants, including ferulic acid and vitamin E, plus a skin-refining peptide—making this is a well-rounded anti-aging "boost" to ward off environmental stressors and minimize fine lines. What's more, the antioxidants help the vitamin C remain stable and more effective throughout usage of this booster. Win-win!

If you're looking for a complexion brightening formula with anti-aging properties, C15 Super Booster does the job beautifully!

*As with all liquid, high-strength vitamin C products, for best results and potency, use within three months after opening.

Pros:
  • Contains 15% vitamin C backed by research for brightening and improving uneven skin tone.
  • Light-as-water texture suitable for all skin types.
  • Supporting ingredients help replenish skin and minimize signs of aging.
  • Strengthens skin's environmental defenses.
  • Fragrance free.
Cons:
  • None.

Brand Overview

Paula's Choice Skincare At-A-Glance

Paula's Choice Skincare was established in 1995 when best-selling beauty author and consumer advocate Paula Begoun (known as The Cosmetics Cop) decided to develop her own products.

As a natural evolution of Paula's personal mission to help consumers find the best products for their skin, the line has grown into an extensive range of skincare and makeup products that are formulated to meet the needs of almost every skin type and skin concern imaginable, from acne to wrinkles.

Paula’s Choice Skincare relies on published research where available to discover the best ingredients for skin. Stable packaging is another feature of the brand, using innovative, opaque, and air-tight or air-restrictive components that keep antioxidants and other light- and air-sensitive ingredients from breaking down. The line is also 100% fragrance-free.

Disclosure: Paula Begoun is the creator of Beautypedia and founder of Paula's Choice Skincare products. Reviewing thousands of skincare and makeup products over the past 30 years, both on this site and in her best-selling books, Paula's mission has always been to help consumers find the best products possible for their skin. The Beautypedia Team proudly and unequivocally maintains this commitment. In addition, The Beautypedia Team reviews all products using the same rating standards and criteria, whether it is a Paula's Choice product or another brand.

Why are Paula's Choice Skincare products rated highly? The Paula's Choice Skincare Team would not launch a product unless it was worthy of a high rating from The Beautypedia Team. Paula and The Beautypedia Team were researching and reviewing products long before Paula's Choice Skincare ever existed and consumers were constantly requesting a skincare brand that met all of Beautypedia’s criteria. As a result, The Paula's Choice Skincare Team was created and uses the same research and criteria to formulate Paula's Choice products as The Beautypedia Team uses to review products.
