Plumps up my oily/combo skin, smooths it out, makes it feel lovely! Serums usually do not work well with my skin, but this one is good! I have to be careful with it - it causes little break outs under my nose if I use it more than a few times a week. So I don't use it every week even, but when my skin starts looking drab (like now, mid-winter) I'll use 6-8 drops at night, or even day (great canvas for makeup) and it really helps the texture look and feel smoother. I like the dropper for ease in dispensing.

I really do like this product and was pleasantly surprised it didn't irritate my skin at all. I get hormonal cystic blemishes around my muzzle area that usually leave behind marks and was looking to fade discoloration and brighten my skin overall. While this didn't zap my discoloration completely, I definitely think it helped, but that's not why I love this product so much, interestingly. This has been great for hydrating my skin. Applying this every other night or so leave my skin SO SO SO soft and glowy in the morning. I don't have dry skin, leaning more towards oily, but this hydrates me without making my skin feel producty or gross. Doesn't make me more oily. Also, applying this to my cysts helps calm them down a bit, too.One thing I hate is the stupid ass packaging. It's stored in a dropper bottle, so you constantly have to open the bottle letting air into the product. The glass dropper is always falling out of the rubber top, too. I can't see how this doesn't effect the products active ingredients. Would prefer in a pump.

I've used several generous samples of this. It performs like any good vitamin C serum, and I like the organic aroma of the genuine non-perfumey lavender: fresh and kind of twiggy and leafy.

amazing serum! this is my first vitamin C serum. I was confused with so many products on the market. but I saw a lot of positive reviews on this and bought it. I applied it last night and today my face looks so smooth and I look younger and brighter! the only thing I don't like is that it smells really bad and tastes disgusting. but it works! best Vitamin C serum.

I have been using the Vitamin-C serum every other night faithfully for the past 3 months, on my face, neck, decolletage, and even on my hands. It is amazing how well this product works. It has faded some dark spots on my face, hands, and decolletage, but what is amazing is that my complexion overall is more even and clear. I have received many compliments in the past few weeks about my complexion and I know this product is working, because it is the only new thing that I have added to my regime.

About my skin: Combination (oily on the T-zone), acne prone skin. I've been using this serum for a month now, and it has done nothing but made me break out. I was being patient with it, trying to see if my skin needed some time to adjust to my new skin care routine but the break outs has gone way too far. I wanted to try this serum out because I heard that vitamin C can help with lightening up dark spots, but this did not do anything. It was also pretty expensive, I got it for 50$ at Urban Outfitters. Waste of my money.

Great stuff!!! Love the smell and the results I'm getting from this product! I've used it every other night for about 3 months and it is truly incredible! 3 months ago I still had horrible acne marks and hyperpigmentation from my cystic acne outbreak last fall and now my skin is 100% clear! I mix this with rosehip oil and it is now a skincare staple for me. Thank you, Mario Badescu ♡

A new favorite! This serum feels and smells fabulous its actually pretty good at lighting and scar faded I can already see a slight difference "I've only been using this for 10days!". Now its says use it every other night I absolutely live this and I do use more then that, I use every night sometimes even in the daytime. I have no issues or rash reactions with this product and I am fairy sensitive. I do advise using a physical sunblock with this meaning titanium or zinc oxide only this means it reflects the sun rays off the skin because of its physical shield SPF 30 and above. Overall I am planning on buying this again I love how its made skin look and feel, its very softening and makes you glow. Pros:Price is very decent for a vitamin C serum.Smells very fresh and citrus like, kinda like lime jello.Provides a soft rubber like feel when applying. Lighting and acne scar fading.Skin lighting and gives you a glow.Cons:Packaging, unfortunately because Of the dropper this will eventually Oxidize but I use it so much that Hopefully it wont be too much of a Problem.
