          Comments about Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum:

          This serum is incredible. I tried a sample of it and noticed my skin looked healthier almost immediately. Needless to say, I rushed to get my own jar and have no regrets. My skin tone has evened out (had a couple darker patches before) and my face now has a natural, healthy glow to it. Love!

                I love love love this stuff. This is my second bottle and I can not be without it. I went 2 weeks without it and my skin became very dull. In one night I could see the difference in the brightness come back to my skin. This is a must have. I also have combo acne prone skin and this has helped me with my acne. Worth the splurge!!!

                  Comments about Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum:

                  I have given this more than four patient tries and have gotten the same results each time. I like the smell as I apply it after skin cleansing, before bedtime. I awaken to smell the change to something not favorable. Since I wash my face again, its not so bad to make me quit using it. However, I develop clogged pores and blackheads and I never get blackheads on my cheeks. So, this product gets a one star for effort as I was happy with other products in his line, but this one is going to the trash.

                        The Vitamin C Serum can be used every other night alternating with the Rose Hips Nourishing Oil if you have combination or dry skin. We would suggest reducing the frequency of use if you are more on the oily side.

                        We wouldn't recommend putting the serum drops directly into the bottle of moisturizer. Rather you can put a pea size amount of moisturizer on your hand, add one drop of serum, and mix together when applying daily.
