I really liked this a lot. Made my fave feel fresh and tight. Like I'd had a mini face lift. I did have to use a facial moisturizer or primer after to get my face skin to loosen some, but it was worth every penny. I finished the entire bottle, no breakouts, no sensitivity issues. Good stuff for my skin. And you really don't need much at all. My overall complexion has improved. No dark spots. My skin is more even.

I use this with hyaluronic acid in the mornings before I put on my makeup. It smooths out my skin and looks great under makeup. My skin appears healthier overall in the weeks since I started using it. My skin feels more moisturized and it absorbs really well. No greasy feeling. I read somewhere that the packaging change was due to a change in the pump on the bottle-not to the formula of the product itself. I couldn't find any documentation of the formula ingredients before to compare to the formula now.

It is a little pricey for the amount that you get but it smells good and doesn't break me out.

If you want your skin feels like baby skin, then use it. You will see the different right at the first time. Good luck!

Wal mart has best deal on this product than other drug stores.

I am an african american teen makeup & skincare fanatic. i suffer with dark marks all over my face. i have invested in many products, such as the PMD , mena cream , murad vitamin c serum. multiple things. after reading reviews on this serum i was very on edge but it was too late i had already purchased it on a whim. i honestly cannot believe the results i have received from this serum. my dark spots are literally diminishing right before my eyes. i use this religiously right before bed with along with african black soap by shea moisture. i am so in love. it didn't break me out . its very lightweight, the smell is only overwhelming the first day or so. overall i love this serum.

I knew I would end up eating my words about this lovely-smelling serum. I was using it about a year ago but found it was giving me dry, flaky patches and swore I wouldn't touch it again. But I had a spare bottle, unopened in my medicine cabinet and wasn't sure what to do with it. I thought it worth giving it another chance, especially as I'm into mixing serum with facial oil these days. My skin is ultra sensitive nowadays so I did a patch test first and there was no adverse reaction. I've been mixing it with rosehip oil/Decleor Iris oil and so far it hasn't made me dry or flaky and my skin is looking good. It's not all down to this serum but it's made me want to continue with it until I finish the bottle.

This product works wonder on my acne prone skin, It is really affordable compare to other vitamin C serums. It improves the overall texture of the skin. My skin is so much brighter since I am using this product. It also helped with my acne scars and has reduced my blemishes. I use this at least twice a day. Each bottle lasts about 2 months for me but no complains! the price is affordable and the result well worth the money! This one of the few products I could see the improvement in my skin in first few days of using. highly recommended!

The new formula is garbage. I actually returned it and complained to the company. Why they would reformulate to a worse formulation is beyond me but at any rate I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND! It's nothing like the old formulation and the addition of bergamot is ridiculous..that can cause brown spots on your face! Ugh. No way I'll repurchase unless they go back to the original formula.

My first vitamin C serum, and probably the best d/s option but, ultimately, a disappointment because I saw no improvement in fine lines or skin texture/color.


Pros: hygienic, lockable pump. Not as expensive as other serums.


Cons: Housed in frosted clear glass, which exposes the product to light and accelerates breakdown of Vitamin C. Feels very sticky on the skin. % Vitamin C in the product is not listed.

I'm not impressed by this at all. It's more a light lotion than a serum.
It smells too much like orange candy to me and instead of being absorbed to the skin quickly, it sits on top of my skin not having much effect at all apart from the smell and an uncomfortable feeling.

A serum for me should give an extra boost of moisture and be absorbed quickly.This doesn't.
