    Comments about Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum:

    I was eyeing this product for the longest but didn't know if I wanted to spend that much on it; I know I could return it if I didn't like it, but I myself don't like returning stuff so I bought this during the 21 days of saving for spring for 25% off and it was so worth it! I've been using it for two weeks now and it has cleared up most of my skin from redness due to breakouts and I honestly can't wait till i use it some more.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum:

      I'm in my early 30's and was looking for something to combat fine lines, sagging, and crepe-yness. I've only been using this stuff about a week and can tell a difference in my skin seemingly the minute I put it on. Whn I wake up, my skin is soft, more toned, and with diminished lines. I follow the directions and only use it every other night before bedtime. I also follow it up with the Chamomile Night Cream. Side note: I have dry, sensitive skin and this product does not bother me.

      Comments about Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum:

      I loved this inmediately. Went on smoothly and 4-5 drops was just enough. Covered my face easily. Used it at bedtime after I washed my face. Put on my night time moisturizer on top (Mario Badescu Protein Night Cream). In the morning woke up with soft, supple skin. I have only used it about 3-4 times so I don't know yet about discoloration so I'll wait to see in a couple of weeks.

        I use it every other day per instructions, at night and underneath a night time moisturizer. I like that it does not have a "perfume" smell. The smell is not great but it not unpleasant.

                Comments about Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum:

                This Vitamin C serum is amazing! I've been using it for about a year now. I can see a difference in my skin now compared to old photos. My skin is much brighter and looks more youthful. It has a glass bottle which is the most effective way to package vitamin C, but be careful not to drop it. Vitamin C will lose it potency if packaged in plastic. The price point of this product is very reasonable for the amount of product you receive. One bottle will last me 6 months, since I apply it in the morning only.

                  Mario changed the ingredients of this serum because I had a bottle that I just finished so I purchased another one recently and it smells so much better. It now has a subtle lavender scent which is much better than the weird smelling one they had before. It works really well too.
