    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!

                  One of my favorite products because of its simplicity and healing properties. The downside is that no matter how cautious I am, the bottle
                  accidentally gets knocked on its side while applying and precious product is lost. A flip top lid would help prevent that rather than a dropper

                        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!
