OVERALL: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 This little bottle truly is like a magic potion. If you are after that soft, dewy glow and can afford this in your budget then don’t hesitate! The formula is renowned for being effective in addressing skin tone and hyperpigmentation concerns. You’ll look radiant immediately and can see further results with consistent use. I find that the application is very easy with the dropper provided and there is no stinging when the serum is applied to the skin. I have had this bottle for approx 4 months and it has not oxidised. I keep it in my beauty fridge and apply it only in the mornings, immediately after cleansing and before my toners and serums. It pairs well with the Skinceuticals SPF. The visible results has me looking forward to my morning routine every day!... Read more

It smells like Christmas ham 😄, which can feel odd when you first apply it but the scent does not linger whatsoever once absorbed... Read more

While I appreciate the glass bottle the dropper was not my favorite. Maybe I got a defective one not really sure, but it wouldn’t fill up to the top (proof is in the photo) and it will drop extra drops in my hands. I just prefer to have control of how much product comes out if that makes any sense. The serum has a medicinal scent to it that dissipates after a few minutes. For reference it smells just like the one from eg4ulabs. Texture is lightweight, watery, and absorbs quickly. When it comes to results I say it has definitely lighten my acne scars (big plus on that one) but it has taken longer than other serums I’ve tried in the past. After three months of use no results on improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of firmness. Overall, for the price ($166) and plenty of raved reviews, I expected more I guess. So far it’s just an ok serum for me.😏 If you don’t mind to splurge from time to time I say give it a try, maybe you’ll have better and faster results. As I mentioned, retails for $166 USD and you get 1 oz of product. It’s also suitable for all skin types including sensitive and dry skin.... Read more

This product completely lives up to the hype for me and I can’t imagine using another vitamin C product again, so long as I can continue to afford this one. My skin is bright, even, and so much healthier looking. Even on days where I haven’t gotten enough sleep or I’m a little dehydrated, this serum perks my skin right up. It plays nicely with my other products and has caused zero irritation for my very dry, sensitive skin. The price tag is a bit intimidating, but after a month of use and seeing how much remains in the bottle, I anticipate this will last me 5-6 months. ... Read more

It definitely smells like hot dog water or burnt hot dogs… if it didn’t work so well, the scent would be unforgivable. ... Read more

The longtime champion of all Vit C serums....at a $186 price tag though! It is fabulous, it works over time...and leaves an amazing glow. Good news is, the coveted formulation now has an expired patent. There are a few comparable dupes that work just as well.... Read more

Product Details SkinCeuticals' C E Ferulic features a synergistic antioxidant combination of ferulic acid and pure vitamin C and E to enhance your skin's protection against environmental damage caused by free radicals. In addition to antioxidant protective benefits, this formula improves signs of aging and photodamage to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles while firming and brightening your complexion. Lastly, this powerful formula helps neutralize free radicals induced by UVA/UVB, infrared radiation (IRA) and ozone pollution (O3). Key Ingredients: -15% Pure Vitamin C (L-Ascorbic Acid): provides visible anti-aging benefits, brightens skin and helps protect against oxidative stress -1% Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol): this pure form of vitamin E neutralizes free radicals and replenishes skin lipids -0.5% Ferulic Acid: a plant-based antioxidant, ferulic acid neutralizes free radicals and enhances the antioxidant benefits and stability of vitamins C and E Key Benefits: -Provides advanced environmental protection from skin-damaging free radicals caused by sun and pollution -Clinically proven to reduce combined oxidative damage from free radicals generated by UV, ozone, and diesel exhaust by up to 41% Improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and loss of firmness -Evens and brightens skin tone -Once absorbed, this vitamin C serum can remain effective for 72 hours -Paraben-free and ideal for normal, dry, and sensitive skin types My Thoughts: I’ve been using this product for 5 years now and truly can’t live without it. At first the price tag was a bit of a shock and the burnt popcorn/hot dog water scent made me a little skeptical, but the IMMEDIATE RESULTS couldn’t be ignored. The impact this product continues to have in my skincare routine far outweighs the less than desirable aspects of it. I know some people out there question the varied color of the product with reference to oxidation and integrity, but I’ve had bottles ranging from pale yellow to an amber-ish orange and the results haven’t differed one bit. The only time I notice bad results is when I run out of this product before I’ve restocked! Seriously, my skin is addicted to it and for good reason. I’m in my very late thirties, basically 40 and my skin tends to be super dry, sensitive, and gets irritated easily; my pores are larger than normal, and the signs of aging have started to set in with fine lines and wrinkles. Beyond that, I’ve struggled with acne my entire adult life so I’m no stranger to bad breakouts and leftover scarring. When I say this product works, I mean it! It has visibly improved all of my problem areas - keeping my acne at bay, evening out my skin tone, firming up my natural laugh lines, shrinking the size of my pores, and giving my face an overall smooth, silky, plump and hydrated feel and appearance. I absolutely love this serum and I’ve yet to find any other product on the market that can give me the same kind of results with such little effort. Use this serum daily as part of your morning routine, use periodically on it’s own for a quick pick me up to even things out and brighten your complexion, or layer it on with other serums and products as part of a “treat yo self” at-home facial. I use this serum all these way as my routine is constantly changing!!! But I definitely recommend even though the scent isn’t the best, your skin will thank you for it!!!!... Read more

I have tried so many so called dupes for this and just wasn’t impressed. They either were too gritty, too sticky, too oily, didn’t absorb well, had no or little affect on my skin. I finally caved and bought this kind of hoping I wouldn’t like it. Unfortunately I fell in love with it. It is an absolute beautiful serum that my skin loves. Guess I’m now stuck with the hefty price tag, but to me it’s worth every penny.... Read more
