Comments about Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum:

I have been using this for a week and wow, I already see a great difference. I had a lot of scabs on my face from picking a recent acne breakout(I know, I know) and after only 2 uses the scabs were gone. My skin looks brighter and healthier. I have severely dry skin, even in the summer, and this feels very hydrating and makes my face feel like a baby's bum in the morning. I don't see TOO much difference in my hyper pigmentation BUT I have only used it for a week. I use it every other night before bed after washing my face and toning. I mix in 4-5 drops with my mousturizer. It does smell terrible but I didn't dock rating for it because it only lasts a couple seconds then it is gone. I am not one to buy expensive products, but I was pleasantly surprised with how much product is in the bottle and I know this is going to be a staple in my skin care routine. This product is well worth the money I think.

    I'm a 35 year old with olive Mediterranean skin, and I'm a picker. I use this stuff at bedtime after I've been mean to my skin and in the morning, you can't tell I even touched it.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum:

      I just got the Mario Badescu Brightening Kit & this product was included... I use Tarte's Maracuja Oil & I have to say this stuff is probably just as good if not better. Using it after exfoliating my face was just as moisturizing as using a moisturizer alone. Coupled with some moisturizer made it even better. What I like more about this oil vs. maracuja is there's really no smell! It sunk right into my skin & soothed any issues I was having with my overly sensitive skin! Definitely try it!

      Comments about Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum:

      This is my secret weapon. I've had dermatologists and facialists ask me what I use on my skin. I'm 45 and I have no dark spots on my face thanks to this serum. I use it every night after I wash and tone with Mario Badescu products. Mario products are a great value for this level of skincare and a little goes a long way so the products really last.

      Best Uses

        Comments about Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum:

        I used it every other night for one week.
        This serum made my skin extremely dry.
        It has been about 3 weeks now, and my skin is still peeling off from it.
        No need to mention the hyper pigmentation I got from it.
        BEWARE people with sensitive skin.

          Comments about Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum:

          This makes my skin feel so refreshed and awake. smells great and absorbs well. Haven't noticed difference with dark spots yet, but gives a glow the next day whereas moisturizing cream alone can leave my skin a bit dull. bottle says to use every other day.

          Forgetting to use this just for a week and then starting again, i have a new appreciation for the value of this in my routine as far as keeping my skin balanced and healthy-looking. Good stuff.

            Comments about Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum:

            This is a great and efficient dark spot corrector I've ever have. Due to the sun exposure while driving to work everyday, dark spots appear mainly on the left side of my face. I tried several dark spot corrector or whitening products but didn't help at all. My facial therapist told me that the vitamin C serum would help to reduce dark spot and then I found this at Ulta. I've been using this for 3 weeks and it works very well. Not only the dark spots are lightening gradually, but it brightened my skin as well. I use it every night after shower before bedtime, just a few drops for my face and neck. My skin looks so brightening everyday in the morning. This is the first Vitamin C serum I have; haven't try other brand so far, but this one is excellent and I will buy this again for sure.

              This is a winner for me. It is a good value - not too pricey and I have noticed my skin is brighter with use. I know there are more expensive Vit C serums out there but this is the only one I have tried so I have no comparison.

                  I've only been using this product for a couple of weeks now, but so far I like it. I just started adding anti-aging products into my night time ritual and figured this serum would be a good place to start. I like to put on my moisturizer first though and then add the serum. It's easier and absorbs into my skin better.

                      A:

                      We recommend that you apply 3-4 drops on clean skin avoiding eye area every other night, depending on your skin's tolerance. If you are more on the sensitive side, you can use twice a week. Depending on your personal usage, the bottle should last roughly 60 days.

                      We would suggest not using until your acne is under control and there are no more active breakouts.

                      We do not recommend applying to sunburned skin. For acne scarring, the vitamin C within this serum will help to reduce any discoloration.
