Oh, how I hate the price of this. Iíve been using this for months, every two to three days or so in the morning. I leave it on for about 5 minutes, and than follow with my regular regimen (moisturizer, ss, tinted moisturizer or EDM foundation). My sensitive skin loves it! Contrary to my fears, I had no stinging or redness using this. Smell is off-putting (bacon, indeed), but something you can definitely get used to. The change to my skin wasnít dramatic using this, but it did even out my skin tone. This is preventative, so donít expect miracles. But it is one of the very few ingredients out there that is statistically proven to ward off unwanted ageing effects.

I just ran out of it, and I really hate to pay such a high price for it. But I will. It is worth it. Iím turning 30 this month, and nobody believes me. I look younger because I take care of my skin! This will be my b-day present for myself I guess. =)

I dont understand why so many people are looking for results from this. Its a treatment to PREVENT future damage not REPAIR existing damage. I think of it as an insurance policy for the skin so am unable to see results but will hopefully see them years down the line when I look younger than my age (hopefully). It does indeed smell of bacon though

i have been using this for almost a year and absolutely love it. The smell yes takes a bit to get used to but now it does not bother me at all. I have to say that I can see a big difference in my skin and the overall brightness of it when I stop using this serum. This makes my skin glow! I use it underneath my sunscreen every other day or so. I read that a C serum's antioxidant properties will last for over 24 hours so I have more product this way.

Had such high hopes for C E Ferulic. Used it for about a month. Didn't see any major improvement but I did start breaking out in a fine rash all over my browline. Again, this is after a month of using it, with no adverse reaction until then. The rash seems sort of common to some, reading the reviews here. So sad to have spent so much money only to be wasted.

I am 60 years old, and have used this product for many years. No one can believe I am 60, my skin looks very, very good. It is expensive, but amazon.com seems to have this product for under $100.00. I combine this product with the Skinceuticals Hydra B5 product and have not had any problems. You must leave this product on your face for around 3 to 4 minutes before adding any other product. Your skin will absorb the product and it will not wash off. My dermatologist recommends this product highly. You can use this with DNA Repair from Remergent, and you will not be disappointed. I have tried many, many expensive lines, and always come back to this one.
That being said, the best thing to prevent wrinkles and sagging is to wear a good sunscreen every single day, rain or shine.

I really don't like this product in many ways. I don't like its texture or smell. It is a tiny bit irritating to my skin so I only use it a few times a week in the am. The reason why I still give it a great review is because I view it to be a medicinal product that really works to boost sun protection. I have extremely sun sensitive skin (burn in less than 15 minutes w/out ss, and sometimes still burn w/ spf 30+ on). When I know I will be outside during intense, I use this product under my sunscreen and I am very well protected. I don't burn at all. For me this is worth the price alone. I can't speak to the long-term anti-aging/cosmetic results, but for antioxidant/sun protection, esp. the clinical claims made by the company, I think it really lives up to the claims w/ consistent results.

For those of you who don't want to spend $100 for the Skinceuticals Serum, I highly suggest Avalon Organics Vitamin C Serum. It's MUCH less expensive than Skinceuticals (only around $20) and it's really significantly improved my skin over the last month.


Skinceuticals C E Ferulic REALLY irritated my skin - caused acne and redness. Plus it smells very strongly medicinal.


I'm SO happy I found this less expensive alternative Avalon Organics Vitamin C Serum and I wanted to let all my fellow MUAers know (read my review of the product for more info)! :o)

I have repurchased this product twice. My sister-in-law gave me a photo which was taken after using this product for a while. My skin looked positively radiaent in the photo. I use Renova in the p.m. and now using Phloretin in the a.m. Right now I cannot tell much difference between the CEF and Phloretin. Read somewhere that you should alternate the use of the products (every other day) but I can't justify that expense.

Okay I'm writing this review for my mother. She is 48 and looks around 33-37. Around 10 years ago she developed hyperpigmentation on her cheeks and went to a dermatologist who was also a big researcher. Along with another product he told her to use this. My mother has beautiful skin without makeup, she gets stopped at stores and women ask her what she uses. I have friends who are 27 with more forehead wrinkles than her. The woman has no eye wrinkles that I can see. Her skin looks so youthful. I really believe its this serum, you should use it everyday. It works.

I have been using this product for little over a year and feel that is amazing. It smells bad and is recommended to use at night so that when you wash your face in the morning you don't have to worry about the smell. I read tons of reviews about it and believe that in the long run this product will help with aging. I LOVE IT!
