pro tip: Not about the rollerball? You can easily pop it off the top and apply how you'd like!
Bottom line: If you want an acne-free complexion and youthful-looking skin, pick BBE’s Anti-Aging Serum.

What’s this new HyperActive Anti-Aging Vitamin C Serum everyone’s talking about?
So glad you asked, girlfriend. Our HyperActive Anti-Aging Vitamin C Serum is one product you’ll want on your bathroom counter at all times. Here’s why.
The HyperActive Anti-Aging Vitamin C Serum contains that glorious Hyaluronic Acid we mentioned above, as well as a *ton* of other botanicals. It can be used in conjunction with the Hyaluronic Acid Serum, but not with Bakuchiol products as these contain Niacinamide, which is an antioxidant that can’t be used with Vitamin C.
But don’t stress, this brightening superstar plays way well with a few others. Just keep reading.
Can I use BBE’s Vitamin C serum and toner together?
Yes, yes, and YES. In fact, this is the duo you’ve been waiting for to step up your skincare game once and for all!
We recommend using both of these Vitamin C powerhouses for ultra protection against free radicals and other environmental factors. Keep your skin happy, protected, nourished with this Vitamin C duo!
One option we love is pairing the Hyaluronic Acid Serum and Rose Facial Toner during the daytime, and the Hyaluronic Acid Serum and Vitamin C Toner & Serum at night.
Trust us – both combinations will keep your skin looking fresh, hydrated, and radiant without any unwanted mishaps.
Will Vitamin C serum cause sun sensitivity? When should I really use it?
We are avid encouragers of all things SPF related. Whether you’re using Vitamin C products or not, we recommend adding in a facial sunscreen to any daytime skincare routine to keep your skin at its healthiest. The sun can easily cause premature aging to any of the skin on your body. And let's just say, we are *so* not about that.
As for when to use our glorious Vitamin C serum, you can use it twice a day if desired, and as per usual, layer on that SPF! And as for our other serum options – it makes no difference when you choose to use them, babe!
So what’s the difference between the Hyaluronic Acid Serum and the Vitamin C Serum?
Alright, we know what you’re thinking. They both contain Hyaluronic Acid, so what gives? Well, some babes don’t want to use Vitamin C but do want to reap the benefits of Hyaluronic Acid. Conversely, other babes want both!
The Hyaluronic Acid serum is made to be *super* gentle, so anyone can use it! It focuses on this one, standout ingredient, although we did pack it with some other impressive skin-soothing anti-aging botanicals.
And our Vitamin C serum? It contains all of that Hyaluronic Acid goodness and a bag of chips. Or better known as, all of the brightening benefits Vitamin C has to offer. It works overtime to protect your skin from free radicals and fights the loss of firmness to boot.
Can I use these two together?
Sure you can! Just be sure to use these serums and oils last in your skincare routine, no matter which serum is right for you.
We should also mention that these products work best for a babe who is looking for an oil-based product. But keep in mind that we formulated all of our serums with safe-to-use ingredients anyone can enjoy.
All of these gems sounds ah-mazing, how should I layer them?
We could write this up in a paragraph, but you’re a busy babe so here’s the Spark Notes version of how to layer all of our fave serums.
- Apply our Vitamin C serum, followed by our Hyaluronic Acid serum.
- Or, apply our Bakuchiol serum followed by our Hyaluronic Acid serum.
Vitamin C and Bakuchiol, though? Those two just don’t mix, babe. Kinda like pineapples and pizza (sorry, not sorry).
I have mature skin, and I want to minimize wrinkles and signs of aging. Which BBE serum was made for me?
Honestly, any and all of BBE’s serums are anti-aging and packed with botanicals that will have your face glowing for years to come. For real gorgeous, there is no need to wonder which serum is right for you when it comes to preventing signs of aging with BBE's trusted lineup! You can count on any of the gems we mentioned above to protect your skin from free radicals, and keep it wrinkle-free.
Pro Tip: If anti-aging is your main skincare concern, we recommend using our Anti-Aging Face Cream pre-serum application. This will ensure your skin is getting everything it needs and more to stay plump, hydrated, and nourished.
You’re now a serum guru, babe.
We know, we know. All of the above is everything and more you could have ever wanted to know about which serum is right for you.
