Do you get overwhelmed by the sheer number of Vitamin C serums out on the market? I've tried a bunch of them, and even I get that way sometimes. I recently have been using a Vitamin C serum from Vibriance that ticks a lot of the boxes of what I look for in a serum.
Serums are generally very nutrient-rich topicals that are suspended in a thin base. These are great for lots of skin types, but my oily skin especially loves them because I get a lot of good stuff, without the rich, pore-clogging, heavy base.
This serum is clear, with a thin gel-like consistency. It takes a few moments to sink in, but then dries without any tackiness or stickiness, Because of its viscosity, a pump dispenser works best, and that's the first thing I look for - an opaque, sturdy pump that protects my precious serum from light, air, and contaminants. I can appreciate the nice touches like the details in brushed and polished chrome, and I'm not immune to pretty packaging, but functionality definitely comes first.
scientific White Paper, Vibriance explains why the form of Vitamin C they use not only is more shelf-stable, but it also can be delivered deeper into the skin, making it more effective. This serum uses the power of Vitamin C to help brighten the skin and for the antioxidants to fight free radicals, but it also is supposed to help build collagen and elastin, and even help your skin create hyaluronic acid. This results in firm, smooth, brighter skin that looks and feels more youthful.

If these are some of the things you also look for in a Vitamin C serum, then I encourage you to check out Vibriance! They can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and on their website, where this serum currently retails for $67 (but with a 15% discount for purchasing 2 bottles, or a 30% discount for purchasing 3!)
