      I would give this product 5 stars if it wasn't for the fact that I still haven't received it in the mail yet. I have used it before though, and I love the lightweight, non-greasy feel of it! Also, it smells really good too!

          Comments about Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester Serum:

          I noticed improvement the first time I used it. I hate wearing foundation but I do because I have blotchy uneven skin tone from sun damage. I use it morning and night for about 2 weeks now and it has made marked improvement eliminating the blotchiness and discoloration from sun damage. I use it all over my face, around my eyes, and neck. It is also reducing the fine lines around my eyes. This is pretty anazing stuff!

              Comments about Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester Serum:

              After using this for a month I'm absolutely in love. My skin is brighter and more "glowy". Redness on my nose and dark spots on my neck have already started to fade a lot. It has a strong citrus scent but I love it, and the formula absorbs quickly. I use almost a full dropper in the morning right after toning with Beauty Water. I'm about halfway done with the bottle so a bottle should last me about 2 months.

                  I use this product every morning. It absorbs quickly so that I can apply my other Perricone MD products. I noticed an improvement in the tone of my skin after the first two weeks.
                  There isn't a Perricone product I've tried that I haven't liked. I have been using Perricone for many years.

                    Comments about Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester Serum:

                    I had been researching Vitamin C serums for a while and found that not all are created equal. The best working Vitamin C ingredient is "Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate" and this product includes it. Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate is known to be more expensive but works a lot better. After one use I noticed a difference in my skin. It looked more radiant and brighter. I am also prone to acne and this did not make my skin break out. Don't let the higher price tag steer you away...This product works!

                        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.
