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.

I put this on and 5 minutes later my face became red and peeling. I have very non reactive skin and this destroyed my moisture barrier in 5 minutes

Not the best for the price
professorphoenix from San Diego, CA
It smells like alcohol, and while the color of the packaging is cute, it's not a great serum in many ways. There are a lot of ingredients in this serum that you wouldn't find in a better quality one at this price point. I used this to the end bc I wanted vitamin c in my regimen, but I wouldn't repurchase as someone who loves skincare.
Bella47 from Chicago
I had this a few months ago and I loved it! The serum cleared up my acne scars and just my face complexion in general. It was one of my favorites as it also did not feel sticky. I hope to purchase this serum again in the near future.

I tried it for a couple of days and my skin started itching and turned red
revised review :/
alex< 3 from ca
i reviewed this before saying that it was more fragrance than anything helpful, and that it barely did anything for me, which i agree with. i stopped using it for a while and since i'm being more intentional about what i buy, i decided to give this one last shot before giving it away. keep in mind that only this product has changed in my routine. my skin used to be bright and smooth and clear, but now its back to its usual state - dull and dry with some acne :(. it rly makes me sad because i loved how my skin was before, and now i have to focus on getting it clear again:(. i dont really think this is a good product. i cant say its bad because its different for everyones skin, but it didnt work for my combo skin (dry everywhere, oily on my nose). it smells like oranges and has a tacky feel to it
Great Korean Product
Tori from Spokane, WA
Everyone has different skin types and some products don't work with their skin. Korean skin care is very different from the US. Korean skin care is meant for light makeup and to overall have great glossy skin, that is the beauty standard in Korean. I don't wear makeup and this product worked very well. I thought it wouldn't work due to my dark skin color but the results showed in less than a week (I apply it every morning after cleansing my skin with CeraVe). It does have a tacky feel but it doesn't affect anything. I also like how it doesn't have a scent. It is somewhat difficult to get out of the tube thingy but the serum will go on my skin anyways. I definitely recommend this product to people who wear light makeup or don't wear makeup at all.
It has ALCOHOL
Nina35 from Canton, MI.
Ladies beware that this product contains alcohol, so be sure to know if your skin can handle that before purchasing. I personally cannot use products that contain that because it breaks me out, which creates scarring&hyperpigmentation. Big other then that ingredient this product looks amazing
didnt do much for my skin :(
alex< 3 from ca
i got this in a mini in a set of three, so theres not much to complain about. it was the only serum i had at the time, and i dont think its bad, i just think theres better. it has an orangey scent, and is a bit sticky because of that. i didnt notice any difference in my skin :(. i switched to the ordinary niacinamide serum and that one had visible results. i think with this one youre mostly paying for cute packaging and a fun experience. i still pull this one out every once in a while to feel pretty, but im glad i got it in a mini and not individually.
Wasn't for me.
Melly Belly from Colorado
Tried this product daily for about a week & decided I wasn't a fan. Although it mentions this serum is more of a jelly, I thought it would absorb more like a serum does. But I found it to just kind of lay on my face & it didn't work well under my moisturizer.
Caused my face to flush
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
ElleBeauty from Baltimore, MD
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.

Don't waste your money
MiaF from Nh
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!
