    I was really disappointed, thought after a few weeks of use I would see a slight improvement. I wasn't expecting miracles just a slight improvement. I would like a refund, please send me the information on how to go about that.

              I could see a difference on my skin within a couple of weeks. I put it on every morning before my moisturizer and my face looks more youthful. All my products are Perricone, including cleanser, I have been using for years. This product had the quickest noticeable improvement from all I have used.

                      I've never tried any of these brand products but I'm wondering, is this brand good for young (early 20's) acne prone skin? I see that most of these products are for anti-aging and deep wrinkles but I'm looking for something that will overall help me with my acne and acne marks, since I've tried many products and still haven't seen any improvement in my skin.

                          A:

                          Yes you can layer this with other serums. I would suggest layering with Perricone MD serums since we know you can layer the Vitamin C Ester Serum with ours. Or try it out first on your wrist to ensure no reaction if using with another product.

                          Yes, it does! Just one to two drops are needed for the entire face & neck. Allow to fully absorb, then follow with your moisturizer and makeup. Enjoy!
