I've tried 3 other vitamin C serums and this so far has been the best. They all smell the same and go bad within a year (turn from mostly clear to a darker liquid) - which is unfortunate, but after using this for a month I noticed the sun spots on my tops of my cheeks faded. I'm guessing it's the potency and also diligence in adding it into my routine.
Everything I have tried smudges within minutes...except this! I have super thin lashes so lash extensions are not even a great option. My solution has been to wear Lancome Hypnose as a base on my lashes and then use this as a top coat. Been doing this for years! I have yet to find a better solution.
Love! After discovering it on a trip to France, I stocked up with 3 tubes - I wish they came in bigger tubes! I prefer to put this on in the morning under makeup as it doesn't make my face get all greasy throughout the day. I have combination to dry skin as a result of Accutane treatments, and lots of sun damage from tanning. I got a tube for my friend who has oily skin and she loves it too! She thought that it would make her break out but quite the opposite. Even though she is a bit acne prone, she finds that giving her skin some moisture has been helping decrease the amount of breakouts.

I was given a couple testers of this product and I love it! I finally committed to buying a bottle and I'm sure this is going to continue as a necessity in my skincare regime. My skin has been through the ringer! Lots of sun damage, a bout of Accutane for severe cystic acne in my early 20's and some fractional laser skin resurfacing recently for the acne scars has made my previous oily skin quite dry in some places. I no longer have breakouts so luckily the essential oils are not an issue. Living in a big city, I find sometimes by the end of the day my skin is dull and I feel like there are tiny bumps but I put this on overnight and my skin when I wake up is noticeably less irritated and more calm, less bumps, and really smooth. I put this on and put my Kiehl's Ultra Facial cream on top for extra moisture.
