How to Use
Rated 4.37 out of 5 stars
I love this serum! I have very sensitive skin (i.e.- can't use moisturizer or liquid makeup of any kind without a skin reaction) and this has helped me regain the natural glow that I had in my 20's. I've seen a distinct reduction in redness and and evening of my general skin tone which is amazing since I only wear powder makeup. The product promotes moisture in my skin which has improved my skin clarity and texture dramatically. Still, I find it promotes a bit too much moisture/shine (note- not grease, it's definitely not greasy for me) if I apply it in the morning under my makeup so I've been using it only before bed. I don't think it's done anything to my fine wrinkles but I swear my under eye darkness has improved which is awesome. Thus far I haven't seen any indication that my skin wishes to reject this routine so its gentle enough for super sensitive skin.
If you have problems with oily skin, I have no idea if this will make it worse. My skin went from dry to dewy in a week so, if you do try it, you'll know pretty quickly. All in all : A+ for me.
I was so excited to come across this product online. I'd been looking for a good Vitamin C serum to add to my regimen, but my skin is super picky. The ingredients here seemed so simple and wholesome, I really got ridiculously excited. But lo and behold, the ingredients listed on the main Ulta site are incorrect, and I'm feeling misled. There are a lot of ingredients that I cannot use on my skin, so back it goes. For the curious, here is the list from the Derma E site: Purified Water, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C, Stay-C? 50), Glycerin (Vegetable Derived) , Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid; Actimoist? Bio-1), Organic Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract*, Propanediol (Vegetable Derived), Microcrystalline Cellulose (Plant Derived), Cellulose Gum (Plant Derived), Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide (Vegetable Derived), Polymnia Sonchifolia (Yacón) Root Juice, Maltodextrin, Lactobacillus (Probiotic), Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Fruit Oil, Organic Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Gel Extract *, Allantoin, Panthenol (Provitamin B5), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Plant Derived), Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Citrate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylgylcerin, Natural Fragrance Oils.

It's a little sticky after application, but that goes away a few minutes after I moisturize. I alternate this product with my anti-aging serum, and my skin is significantly brighter and more glowy! The smell is like a spicy men's cologne, it doesn't bother me. This is a pretty big bottle so I expect it'll last a few months. Most Vit. C serums are $30-40, so this is definitely a good, cheaper option
Rachael from Texas
The best. I love it and it's clean ingredients. Major results and it smells like a big glass of orange juice. Super energizing to put on in the morning.
Bri from VA
Not sure if this would have worked, but I couldn't get past the smell! Very strong scent, it felt like I was rubbing perfume all over my face.
Maryann from Tulsa, OK
Love this product! Been using it for 6 months daily in the morning before moisturizer and has helped reduced hyperpigmentation, brighten my skin, and even the skin tone a little better. Good for darker Indian skin! I also use retinol at night so perhaps that is what has helped too, but overall will continue buying this!
Ko from FL
This product is super light weight and compatible with most moisturizers. It has cleared up my hyperpigmentation and makes my face feel refreshed afterwards. It is a thin liquid rather than a serum though.
Bex from Foley, AL
I've been using this for at least 6 years now and I love it. Is light weight and it can go under any moisturiser. Over the period of a few months I noticed my hyper pigmentation was starting to go away. The good thing about this product is you only need to use a little bit. The only thing I would change about it is if it could be a little more liquidity and less of a serum
Isla Morada from Fl
I just started using this product and I love it! The bottle itself is great and I like the way it smells and feels. It is already improving my skin. I am glowing more, and my skin tone is even! And if I am already wearing some foundation :) I enjoy it and I hope you will too :) also the vitamin c is a great bonus! :) happy skin caring < 3
Sabrina from NC
I really wanted to love this but it made me break out. I rarely get blemishes and started to get acne. Will be returning
AC from Kokomo,IN
I absolutely love this serum! It has a great smell that is not overpowering. The serum goes on smooth.
Claudds from Chicago
Honestly, I didn't expect that this vitamin C, which is not cheap, would be one of the worst skin products I've tried until now. I bought the serum and moisturizer, hoping to get the best results for my skin. The first thing I noticed when applying the serum was that it was very runny so applying quickly was a must. While applying I did have a burning sensation it felt like I was applying chili powder, but I had read the ingredients before buying so I don't believe it was an allergic reaction. One other thing I noted was that the serum didn't dry quickly it just sat on the skin for a while I had to gently pat the serum in so it would dry faster. Once it finally dried my skin was extremely sticky, The stickiness did go away after an hour or two.
NatureGirl from Utah
I love this serum for my sensitive aging skin! I am 45 years old with a few fine lines and some sun damage on my skin. This product is hydrating, doesn't irritate, and makes my skin glow. I have been using it daily for one month in the morning under moisturizer, sunscreen and makeup. It hydrates beautifully and makes my fine lines less noticeable. My skin tone is evening out as well, I can see that my hyperpigmentation is starting to break up and become lighter. This is a very well formulated serum with an impressive ingredients list. I normally don't purchase fragranced skincare products, but I enjoy the scent of this, and the small amount of natural fragrance doesn't bother my skin. Great value for the price as well. If your skin doesn't tolerate ascorbic acid well, give this a try. It's a winner!
Makes face puffy from Sherman oaks
If you have sensitive skin to NOT use this product. There are so many additives and a very strong fragrance.
Ive been Using it for a while, and while my texture is better, but it plumps your skin too much and creates a puffy effect. I noticed recently that my face looks very angular after washing, then I put this on and an hour later it appears puffy and red. Once I stopped using it the structure returned to my face.
I honestly have to call into question how many of these reviews would be as positive if everyone has taken note of whether or not this is overly plumping
reny from anaheim
i genuinely like this serum. it makes my skin nice and glowy and pairs well with my other skincare products. i think for the price point and amount you get it is worth. if your looking for a more affordable c serum that works this is it.
Katie from North Carolina
I love this serum! In just a few weeks it has evened out my complexion and reduced the dark spots left by acne. My skin has never looked so bright and glowy!
Livi from Columbus
This smells just like Fruit Loops and I love it! Great product!
Caroline from Virginia
This helped even out my skin tone, which is covered in acne scars. For once I feel so confident! It's only been 5 days since I've used this product (every morning) and there's a noticeable different. After day 2 I was already getting comments on how glowy I was!
Erika from MD
I'm so happy I gave this a try. I noticed improvement in lines, dark/light post acne spots, and evenness in complexion!! I've been using it for about 3weeks now. I have sensitive oily acne prone skin. I DON'T CARE IF IT SMELLS LIKE CEREAL, as long as it works!!! I'm also careful not to use this with retinol or any other ingredient that may react to it. This stuff is just as good as prestige serums.
ewajay from Chicago, IL
I have dry/ combo sensitive skin and I have not gotten an allergic reaction. I bought this to add vitamin C to my skin care and had low expectations but I'm really glad I bought this. You really can't beat it the price. I've definitely noticed a difference since I've added this and think this is a good beginners product for those wanting to add Vitamin C to their routine. I've recommended this to many people.
Hannah from Seattle
I'll preface by saying that I have dry and very sensitive skin. The fragrance does smell exactly like fruit loops, which was nice at first, but then began to bother my sensitive skin. I used it every morning after a hydrating facial cleanser (followed up with a moisture) for about a month and it started drying out my skin even more, to the point where there was flaky skin around my eyes and the rest of my face had an almost leather-like texture. May work for some people, but was not it for me.
Olivia from Jacksonville, FL
Definitely gave me an allergic reaction. I normally do not have sensitive skin which caught me off guard. I thought it was seasonal allergies but decided to stop using it and my allergies were gone.
Em from Florida
I didn't realize it was working until my phone no longer accepted the fingerprint of the finger I use to apply the serum. There is a definite difference between that fingerprint and the one on the opposite hand.
Adri97 from Wisconsin
I use this with the Neutrogena Water Gel moisturizer and they make my skin glow. I use this every morning. Such a great product!
Ember from Florida
I use this after using the Daily micro exfoliant by Dermalogica and it's the only skin care routine that will work for me. It's limited my breakouts and made my skin softer and more dewy. One pump is more than enough for your whole face.
Swanky Shopper from Los Angeles
I like using this serum after washing my face in the am, or as a first layer under sunscreen &/or makeup. It leaves my skin feeling pliable, moisturized & glowy, but not sticky. Dries in quickly. Doesn't cost a fortune; as many serums are so overpriced.
Boogie from Sandford, Fk
One squirt. Warm with finger tips. Smooth over face and neck.
