Most Helpful Positive Review My new holy grail!!
I use this product every morning since I've opened the box and I plan to continue using this into my daily skincare routine! I love that my skin did not receive any bad type of reaction to this formula! The formula had a light and citrusy and sweet scent that made me want to keep using it all day long. When I used the product after my skin had dulled down for a hot shower; this product would instantly bring life back into my face by warming up my skin and giving me a radiant glow. I wanted to use this product in multiple ways so that I could test the waters of ALL perspectives: with doing so I tried adding this I Dew Care Bright Side Up Brightening Vitamin C Serum into my makeup routine. I attempted this in 2 ways: 1). Applying the serum directly to my clean sponge and patting across my face instead of using my hands to massage in the product & 2). I applied this Serum directly into my foundation. With trying both of these methods in the same setting I realized with the sponge method I got more product into my skin. And with putting the serum into my foundation I realized it made my foundation appear more natural; but, also gave me full coverage in the same sitting. Overall my experience was great!
Most Helpful Critical Review Love the texture
I received this brightening serum complimentary to test out. I've been using this product for about two weeks now, and have been applying the serum before I apply my make up. I haven't seen much of a difference if I'm being honest in the way my skin looks. It's quite possible this serum doesn't work for me. My skin has red tones and an uneven texture. What I do enjoy about this product is that it is very lightweight and isn't sticky. It in no way clogged my pores or irritated my skin, and my skin is very acne prone. The texture of this serum is very jelly like which is actually really cool! Most serums drip down your face when you apply them but this one does not, making application very easy. I think this may be suited for someone else with a different skin type, and my rating is only for the fact that I felt like the product didn't do what it was intended to do.

Tia from Pennsylvania
I didn't think the scent was too strong, I actually thought it was nice. The texture was pleasant as well, and I didn't mind the slightly tacky feeling after application. However, 10-15 minutes after applying this product, my face felt incredibly warm and looked flushed for most of the day. It was a really unpleasant reaction and although it went away later, I don't think it was worth it. I tried it again with different products underneath, hoping the reaction was due to layering, but I had the same unfortunate result.
THE BEST SERUM IVE USED

This makes my face acne free, youthful, and young. I'll be purchasing for a lifetime.
Skincare newbie from USA
This is one of the most annoying packaging ever. The dropper is ALWAYS filled with bubbles no matter how hard I try to get rid of it. It's really tacky but i have seen a difference in my skin. I wouldn't buy it again simply because it was super frustrating to work with.

This vitamin c serum really didn't bother me. I like the jelly consistency and how it dries relatively quick. It has definitely brightened my skin and it doesn't have a ton of bad ingredients.
I LOOVE THIS
Dulce from Long Beach
this serum makes my skin SO soft and kind of blurs out my texture. I also kind of did notice my skin get brighter but this is my first time using Vitamin C. I'm going to stop using it for now since Im gonna try Glycolic Acid, AHA BHA, and Benoxyl and I can't mix any of those with Vitamin C. I would def but again but maybe I'll explore a little more before I come back.
more fragrance than actual helping ingredients
alex from Azusa CA
bought this when i saw that it had niacinamide and vitamin c because i was looking to brighten my skin that has weird variations in patchiness. i didnt know it would have this much scent in it, and as i've been looking for products that are just focused on helping the skin it was a bit disappointing. it smells like oranges and due to the scent its a bit sticky while drying, however it dries quickly after being patted into the skin. i've used it in the morning and night and have noticed my undereyes brightening a little bit (barely) but nowhere else on the face is it working. im just using it for now while i wait for my niacinamide serum from the ordinary to come in, but be aware of the scent and its effect on your skin
Please don't buy this
Sappho from Ny
Used product as suggested through ulta beauty. I wasn't a fan of the scent but it took my a couple uses to realize it smelled like alcohol. When I looked at the ingredients it became very clear as my assumption based on smell matched the list online. My skin broke out horribly and I'm not prone to acne. The only thing good about this product is the package design. But please don't let that fool you. I'd recommend just finding another brand or just eat vitamin c tablets daily.
Lex from Winston-Salem
Product barely contains any actual vitamin C!! It made my face break out after just two uses and now I'm just gonna have to throw it out. Total waste of your money. I would give it 0 stars if I could
Paige from Oswego, NY
i absolutely love this product and will definitely be ordering more once mine gets low... it's a good size bottle too which is nice
You get what you pay for.
AndyO from Boston
This product was nice and I liked that it was a gel. I used this product every night but I never saw a real difference in my skin. One annoying aspect is that it dries slowly and it dries tacky which is extremely inconvenient if you are using it in the middle of your skincare routine. I would suggest looking at a different product of similar price point or getting your hands on trial sizes of the expensive ones like the Murad Vitamin C serum.
Lexi from Albuquerque
I use this every morning and it brightens up my skin. I can definitely see a difference! Highly recommend!
M from United States
I have a simple skin care routine consisting of: cleanser, mincellar water and then a moisturizer. I incorporated this before my moisturizer and I really have enjoyed the results. I typically use about a three fourths of the vile on my face and neck and then I apply a light moisturizer on my face. I do wear makeup during the day and it does not negatively impact my makeup but really gives me a "healthy" glow. I recommend using it in the day and at night, and maybe applying one light moisturizer after it.
Saw results fast!
Kate from California
I have only used this serum for 3 days and my skin already looks brighter, glowy and clearer! I found that using a drop on each cheek and forehead is the perfect amount for me, if you use too much it will make your face sticky. It absorbs fairly fast and makes my skin feel hydrated. I recommend if your skin has been looking dull and you want some clarity and glow!
Sticky but Effective
LindseyB from Minneapolis, MN
I read the comments before buying this about it being really thick and sticky... I decided to try it anyway as I'm looking for a new Vitamin C serum to add to my skin care routine (I used to use Lancôme Advanced Gentrifique and I love it but it's so expensive, so this seemed like a more affordable option to try). While it definitely is sticky, and stays sticky for quite some time before absorbing into the skin completely, I have seen some pretty great results in the two weeks I've been using it. My skin tone seems more even, my skin is brighter overall, and it continues to feel moisturized even despite the super drying prescription acne topicals I use daily. If you can deal with the stickiness, I would highly recommend this product!
not vitiman c
Hyram from Honolulu, Hi
this product has barely any vitamin c in it. Ascorbic acid (vitamin c) is the 25 ingredient on the ingredient list which is below the 1 percent mark. So you aren't really getting the benefits of vitamin c.
Holly V from MD
Works great as a primer as well
I wouldn't buy it because it's missing things
Bokhw from Ohio
Don't buy it it's a wage if money buy the ordinary one instead
Vic from Des Moines
I broke out a little when I first started using it but after about 3 week of using this product I fell in love with how bright my skin was!! My skin was glowing!!!
Had to stop using
BLitz from Las Vegas
I wanted to like this but unfortunately my skin didn't take too well with it and I got tiny red bumps on my forehead (I did do tests to see if this was the product that was causing it and it was) so I had to stop using it. I do have to say it was sticky at all for me and it smelled nice.
Not Worth the price

Don't waste your money it did noting for me
Itchy skin, breakouts, whiteheads
Sunmer from Baltimore, MD
I received a sample of this product with other purchases. My skin care routine had the same products that I always use, but this product was the only new exception. My skin ended up feeling itchy and had red bumps on my cheek. There were bumps on my neck and forehead as well. I tried it again, and it was the exact same results as before. I cannot recommend this product. It's going in the trash.
Okay but not for the price
Kris from Florida
I've used this for almost a year now and I think I can tell the difference? Maybe? I was super excited to try this and while it did brighten my skin I just felt this was no moment I was like "wow! My skin looks amazing!"... probably won't buy it again, especially for the price.. for this price I could go and buy a little more prestige serum and see more dramatic results. I have sensitive/acne prone skin.
Sierra from texas
I see so many comments on here where it says it leaves your skin "sticky". In my opinion that would mean you are using too much product because a little goes a long ways! I have used this for over a month and no breakouts! My skin stay super soft. I use a exfoliator at night and then top with this & sometimes I mix with a moisturizer. Super impressed and will be repurchasing! :)

Hydrating! Smells great! Will buy again!
