I love this product and don't mind the smell...it goes away after a few minutes anyway. As to where it can be legitimately purchased now (as Limpy noted Skinceuticals tells callers that anyone selling it online now is simply getting rid of old inventory):
If that's correct then why is skinstore the top advertiser on this very page in the google section? Doesn't that cost a lot of money? I don't understand why they would do this if they simply were getting rid of some old products. Also they still have the entire line of Skinceuticals and it's a featured brand on their homepage...I agree with Limpy, something's fishy. If anyone orders from them please post the lot number on this page so we can call Skinceuticals to find out if its old or not. I would love to order it again with a coupon code but not without knowing its fresh stock.

This product did do some nice things to my skin as I was showing signs of aging. However, it is not meant for oily skin. I broke out badly with usage of it. I believe the E in the 'CE' is what cause the problem for me (vit E)

I have tried three other topical vitamin Cs (SK-II, DHC, & SkinMedica) but this one is my favorite one. A bottle lasts about 6 months (on my second one) and my first bottle did oxidize around month 4 or 5. It does have a weird smell but it goes away after a few minutes.
I put the vit C on every morning after putting on SK-II Essence. I wait a few minutes for the vit C to soak in so that the stickiness goes away before applying sunscreen. I do not use moisturizer after the vit C and before the sunscreen since the vit C provides enough moisture for me.
Skinceuticals no longer allows online sales of their products except on its own website, which is too bad because I was able to use discount codes on the other websites.

This is one of the best products I've ever used. I am lucky and have skin that's really good genetically, and I'm pale, so I've been using sunscreen religiously since I was a teenager. So to be fair, it's not like it turned me from the Elephant Man to Linda Evangelista overnight.
But this stuff makes my skin glow like I'm lit by candles. Seriously -- glow. People ask me all the time if I'm wearing foundation (I don't) because my skin looks so nice. It's even started helping to fade some driver's side sun damage that's bugged me for at least 10 years. I also use Avene's Eluage/Ystheal, but I've been using them for years. The new extra glowiness is due entirely to the Skinceuticals.
I've only been using it for about 3 months. I can't wait to see how well I age if I stick with it.

This is my second time trying this out. The first time, I thought it irritated my skin, broke me out, and gave my orange blackheads. My routine was influx at that time though, so I think other factors contributed to my bad initial experience.
I bought a sample pack of 6 on ebay recently, and really like it. It doesn't sting, the smell doesn't bother me as much as I remembered (it's gross, but I don't notice it anymore), and no more breakouts than I normally have. I like that it's moisturizing but that it doesn't leave a film that interferes with other products. My skin seems to have a more even tone and is less red- I know C serums aren't supposed to really do anything immediate, so I'm guessing that it's just a soothing formula.
I apply two drops on my forehead and rub it in, two drops on my right cheek and rub it in over my cheek, nose, chin, under eye area, and then repeat that with my left cheek. I also apply some to my neck but it's hard to see how much I'm putting on because I drop it directly on my skin- I find it dries to quickly and doesn't spread as well if I put it on my fingers and THEN apply it.
It's expensive, even from ebay, and the packaging is stupid and does nothing to prevent the product from oxidizing. I'm going to try out skinmedica's serum after I'm done with this, but predict that I will like the skinceuticals better because of the lack of silicones to interfere with other products.

I just called Skinceuticals directly and asked them why do some websites sell their products at such a huge discount.
I was told that Skinceuticals suspended working with other web retailers 1 year ago. The only way to purchase an authentic product is from skinceuticals.com or from your local authorized dermatologist.
It seems suspicious to me that these websites even have "travel-size" samples for sale, even though the manufacturer does not sell these vials on its website.
Something is fishy.
Do you guys trust that the product you buy is correctly formulated? How do you know?
I don't want to spend $135.
Update: I just called Skinstore.com.
I used to purchase CE Ferulic from them last year.
I asked them why they sell Skinceuticals on their website, if Skinceuticals no longer sells their products through intermediaries. I was told that Skinceuticals did not renew a contract with them and they are selling whatever remained from their last year's stock.

First of all, this only smells like bacon when it gets old. When you buy it, it should be almost clear. If not, it's been sitting on the shelf and you should return it. It does work great. I love to use after a glycolic mask (vit C works well with glycolic) before i go to bed. Your skin repairs while you sleep. I just got my husband to start using. His skin is mature so will be interesting to see how it works on him.

i have used this for 2 weeks now , the next day my colleagues said my skin looked brighter , it didnt irritate me at all except for today , but i did put on a generous 4 drops on i just had a tiny red blotch for 20 mins , skin has felt smoother , this is more of a preventative so not expecting big changes , i recived a few samples so not sure if i will pay that much for it , best vit c iv used so far ,
hate the smell , dont like the bottle but i do believe in the products strength hence y people my react to it .
so id suggest just 2 drops every other day , and the amount of vit c in this is for normal skin types most sensative or acned skin could use there lower dose vit c on its own.

First of all - this product stinks! I feel bad for my boyfriend - I smell like iron/hot dogs when I come to bed! Anyway:
Cons: Hard to wear under sunscreen - ss looks even oilier than normal, impossible to put only 5 drops (or maybe that's just my skin), smell, packaging sucks because you expose the serum to air every time you use it, dramatic results that you expect for the price don't exist - it's a preventative product
Pros: Skin that is more radiant, less sunburn, long-term antiaging effect
I'll buy this again b/c I burn easily and because I have to walk around outside all the time to get to class this summer. I just wish it didn't smell so bad! The price sucks too, but I found a big bottle on ebay (60 mL) for 120$. The packaging is silly b/c they should know vitamin C oxidizes, but I refill a sample bottle from the big bottle, and keep them both in box (to keep out light) in the fridge.

C E Ferulic is a revolutionary topical antioxidant combination that provides unprecedented 8 times the skin's natural photoaging protection. C E Ferulic contains ferulic acid, a new antioxidant that doubles the synergistic benefits of C + E - neutralizing free radicals, building collagen, and providing improved antioxidant protection. No other antioxidant technology has been shown to deliver comparable levels of photoprotection.
I was lucky enough to get this product for free. I usually don't spend more than € 50 for a skin care product and C E Ferulic is € 125 ($ 195) here.
To be honest, when I opened the little bottle for the first time, I was skeptic and perplexed. First off, the smell was odd, like something to eat (roast turkey?) and the serum itself wasn't very practical to apply. By the way, every time I put four or five drops on my face and neck, my skin looks NOTICEABLY more radiant, more lifted and more glowing within 3 hours. It's like a little miracle in a little glass container.
That being said, I won't repurchase C E Ferulic in the future. Unfortunately, it's too pricey and I still don't like its serum form that much, but I definitley can see why so many people love this product now.
