I ordered this on recommendation from No BS Beauty. I paid $24 from Ulta for 0.5 oz. It comes in a small plastic pump bottle. Nothing terrible but so far I am quite underwhelmed. Basically performs like a drug store eye cream such as Cerave (also good but not fantastic and less $$). My search continues for a hydrating day time eye cream to wear under concealer (still love Mario Badescu ceramide eye gel for night).

I really wanted to love the Mad Hippie Vitamin A Serum, unfortunately there are a couple of reasons I didn't. The form of retinol used in this is HPR, which is a much more gentle form of retinol, so if you have had a bad experience with retinol in the past you are less likely to have flaking, peeling,redness,or itchiness from this form. This form of retinol seems to have a little less information on it and I find it to work much slower, so if you are after fast results I would recommend going with another form of retinol. My main issue is the inclusion of Phenethyl Alcohol, which my skin just hates. Most products that contain this make my skin end up feeling dry or making me breakout. I think my skin could adjust to this had Mad Hippie left this aromatic alcohol out. Some people probably won't have any issues with this, but if you do this might be the culprit.

Rather on the fence about this. It has a strong scent, but I find it fades pretty quickly, but the thing that really puzzles me is the white cast it leaves. I'm not dark skinned (nc25-30) and I can still see a white cast if I use the recommended 1/4 tsp. amount. It's moisturizing enough for me in the colder weather, but it's too much in the summer for me. All in all, I don't really care for it; I don't hate it either, but I don't like it enough to keep it, so into the donation pile it goes.

I've heard a lot of hype about Mad Hippie and their Vitamin C Serum in particular. After ordering it I was ready to be either pleasantly surprised or highly disappointed. When I first used it I noticed it does have a scent to it, but it does dissipate quite quickly. They included chamomile, which is where I suspect a lot of the fragrance comes from, and that isn't a bad thing since chamomile is very good for your skin. They did include grapefruit extract, which I am not a fan of, but other than that there is no other fragrance ingredients. The Mad Hippie Vitamin C Serum absorbs quickly and plays nicely with the products I apply before and after it. I love the price of this and the vitamin c has helped to lighten pigmentation. My one recommendation is that if you use this during the daytime be sure to apply SPF afterwards because of the grapefruit. I would purchase this product again and am looking forward to trying more from the Mad Hippie brand in the future. My video review can be seen here:

This is an amazing oil and I'm so glad I have it. I've wanted to try Mad Hippie's products for quite a while. I'm 39 now and I've practiced good skincare but I wanted to step it up a notch. I thought this antioxidant oil was the way to go. I like facial oils as my combination skin is going from oily to dry. So I wanted something to balance my skin.Lately I've just been using Mad Hippie Vitamin c oil twice a day with their moisturizer and this on top. It leaves my skin so soft and clear! I noticed my smile lines were plumper and less visible. My blotchness is gone and my skin looks so radient.I only put a few drops in my lotion and I pat it in. Even though it's a small bottle it great because you do not need much. Just a few drops. Plus for such good ingredients this is a steal! I will repurchase this because it balances my combo skin. It gives me great hydration with the colder months ahead, and leaves my skin so soft and clear. Recommended.
