I hope the month of March is treating you all well. I am busy with my shifting plans plus follow up appointment for my fractured leg. So few weeks back I received the Vya Naturals Vitamin C Serum which I have regularly used for 2 weeks at night and here am with my review. Let me tell you all, this is the first time am using a vitamin C Serum and am so so happy with the effects. First let’s see what Vya stands for and their objective as a skincare brand.
Vya Naturals products are formulated using natural ingredients that are not only safe and non-toxic but also effective. All formulations are original, created by the brand, and tested on people, not animals. Vya Naturals uses therapeutic- grade essential oils, natural plant-based butters, natural clays and plant-based waxes. And they definitely DO NOT use parabens, sulfates, artificial colors, artificial dyes, mineral oils, formaldehyde, animal ingredients, artificial scents, phthalates, chemicals, fillers, mineral oils, or petroleum.
The brand name stands for
- Vimal (pure)
- Yajus (reverence)
- Ayush (healthy life)
Vya is reverence for a pure and healthy life.
Also let’s see what are the benefits of using a vitamin C Serum in general
- Promotes Collagen Production
- Creates Bright, Healthy skin
- Reduces discoloration
- Reduces inflammation
- Acts as an antioxidant
- Gives even toned skin
Brand Claims – Vya Natural’s Anti Aging and Skin Brightening Serum contains 20% Vitamin C to reduce uneven skin tone, dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
The Vya Naturals Vitamin C Serum is bottled in an amber coloured glass bottle with a dropper to use. I like dropper bottles as compared to dispensers and caps for serums. The Serum is water based and we need to use two pumps for each usage. The dropper is very helpful for this purpose.
As stated earlier, I have used Vya Naturals Vitamin C Serum for 2 weeks regularly, at night time only. The very first day I used the serum, I felt a very mild itching sensation, although I didn’t scratch my skin 😛. After applying the serum, the skin feels even toned. The serum is water based and I tend to use a little more every time. The serum gets absorbed like a charm, and you can use a moisturiser on top of it.
Now coming to the efficiency of the product and it’s effects on the skin. I have seen lightening of my new acne scars from day one of the application. Although the pigmentation around my mouth has also lightened a lot, it took around 7 days to show effects on it. Also keeping in mind one time application per day, am quite happy with the results. Also the old acne scars take time to lighten. Also my skin has become a bit even toned on the cheeks where it’s uneven.
The directions for usage say that you can use it day and night, but I would highly recommend night time usage only, as just one time application yields amazing results. Also if you want to use during day time, you should use SPF. Also if you are planning to use on a long term basis I would recommend giving a regular break of 1 week and continue using the product.

Vya Naturals Vitamin C Serum Review
Overall speaking, Vya Naturals Vitamin C Serum is a good option to lighten the pigmentation and acne scars on face and neck and speed up the healing process of the skin. Plus the Serum being water based makes it easier to use it underneath a moisturiser and/or SPF. But it’s highly recommended to use SPF while using during day time and for long term regular usage it is recommended to give in a break to the skin at regular intervals. I would love grabbing the product on a discount though. If you are looking to use a Vitamin C Serum for first time, check for any sensitivity.
