I'm a 39-year-old woman with normal, fairly "problem-free" skin most of the time. I tried this product twice a day for two weeks (right after cleansing in the AM and after serums in the PM) after receiving it from the Stellar Product Testing Panel. Usually I use a very light moisturizer in the morning before my sunscreen and an oil-based moisturizer after serums/treatments in the evening. This moisturizer was a very good stand-in for both of my usuals. For someone who wants a) an effective, sweet-smelling moisturizer with b) active skin-care ingredients and a c) streamlined anti-aging routine that's d) vegan and cruelty free (!) then this is a great product.
It required massaging into the skin because of its cold-cream-like texture but was light, easily absorbed, non-greasy, and worked well both on the dry, flaky skin around my nose and my oilier forehead. My skin felt soft after use and did not dry out as the day progressed. I wasn't bothered by the sweet orange sherbet scent but those with sensitive noses consider yourself forewarned.
I can't speak to the vitamin c or peptide ingredients. Both active ingredients would likely take longer than two weeks to show effect (particularly peptides which work only long-term on the deepest layers of the skin). But, I discoloration or dark spots on which to try the product so it'd be hard for me to notice the effects of the vitamin c. I didn't notice any improvement in the hyperpigmentation around my nose during my two weeks of use, but again, that's a long-term issue to tackle. I plan to continue to use the product and expect positive results.
I've used multiple other bliss products over the years and found them to be consistent, effective and reliable and I'd bet this product will be too. As someone with a historically big beauty budget and lots of experience with many different types of luxury skin care products, this is a product I'd recommend to a friend and repurchase myself.

I'm a 34 year old with a 2 year old and am also 6 weeks postpartum. I don't get much sleep or much time to pamper myself or try new beauty products. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel I was able to try the Bliss Vitamin C + Tri-Peptide Collagen Protecting & Brightening Moisturizer.
I applied it every night after my showers for about a week. It has a nice smell and texture to it. A few seconds after application, I would get a minor warm tingling feeling, I wasn't too fond of that. After application my skin felt smooth and well moisturized. My usual skin care routine had consisted of applying coconut oil as a moisturizer, so this felt much less greasy after application.
I had a hard time noticing if I saw any results of brighter or softer skin. I did notice, I actually ended up with some spots around my chin that we're flaking and dry. I'm
not sure if this is a direct result from this moisturizer or something else. I do appreciate that the ingredients are cruelty free and vegan. Knowing that my products are better for me with less additives and keeping animals safer is a win win in my book.
While I'm thankful I got to try something new, I'm not blown away by this product. I don't see any visible signs of brightening or change with my complexion. So far with my experience of this product, I wouldn't buy any more at the store.

This product is good for anti wrinkles and fine lines but I felt I needed a moisturizer follow up for after bc it left my skin a little dry and a little gritty . I do like it and I will buy it again . I'm 40 and good skincare isn't optional bc I work with teenagers, teaching

Bliss Bright Idea Vitamin C Face Moisturizer I have tried so many moisturizers that left me disappointed. Bliss leaves my skin so very hydrated and really plumps it up!
mksbunny from Jacksonville nc
I was nervous because it had a citrus scent and my skin is a little sensitive, but I had zero sensitivity. And I did notice after a few weeks my skin was brighter!
I love this face
ciarab36 from undisclosed
I love this face cream! It smells like oranges and is so thick and creamy! A little goes a long way and it really feels nice on the skin. This is one of my favorite morning creams (:
great eye cream
katef74 from undisclosed
I really enjoy this eye cream. It has a light weight texture and absorbs in the skin easily. I use it every morning as it is a vitamin C eye cream. I did not notice any significant brightening but I have genetic dark eye circles that vitamin c can't fix. I would buy this again as it is incredibly hydrating for my under eyes. Only use this once per day though or else it pills!

first time using product...love how it keeps my face soft and supple all day.

I have not tried this but I have been told that this is great for your face. I really want it . But highly recommend it
megannef from undisclosed
Ahh! This looks amazing. All the ingredients in this look like things that would help the early on set aging I am experiencing around my eyes (thanks rehead skin). Looks gentle, effective and has so many good ingredient (like peptides, vit c) in it.

I am new to the whole skincare world but I tried this moisturizer and LOVED IT. I love the way is goes on my skin and I truly noticed a difference in the brightness of my skin. Also a good wholesome brand to support. Definitely recommend this product!!

I struggle with extremely dry skin, as well as sensitivity and redness. This has not only helped IMMENSELY with dryness, but my skin also just overall feels a lot healthier every day :)
Love this light weight moisturizer
aprilm162 from undisclosed
This moisturizer is amazing. It is lightweight and not sticky at all. It dries down smooth and leaves my skin feeling and looking bright and fresh. The packaging is so cute. It has a scent but it is not overwhelming. Absolutely recommend!!!
Game Changer for your Skin
kkatt from undisclosed
I purchased this not expecting much. It has a really good price point, so I didn't think it would be as nice as other Vitamin C skincare products I've used. But I was wrong!
It's really thick and hydrating with a light citrus scent. Not too harsh on the skin. But what really impressed me was how quickly it faded my pimple marks! Usually it takes FOREVER for the redness/mark to go away, but this fades it in a week. Def recommend trying it out if you're looking for something hydrating that will also even out your skin tone. Love!
best affordable moisturizer!
Cecelia from Minneapolis
I love this moisturizer and I've tried many affordable options. It leaves my skin looking dewy but not greasy, it's lightweight and it smells great. It also brightens my skin as it says it will! love it, glad I found it.
xlisa from undisclosed
Purchased this about a month ago and what a difference. I was looking for a moisturizer without all of the extra chemicals that is affordable as well as effective and I couldn't be happier. A dime size goes a long way and absorbs well without leaving greasy residue.

Love this stuff!
Kiki from New Jersey
I have very dry skin and this moisturizer made my skin more dry. My skin was peeling it was so dry.. the product would barely sink into my skin it left my face sensitive and red it definitely did not work for my sensitive dry skin
Love this moisturizer
crystalb163 from undisclosed
This moisturizer is sooo good! My skin tone looks more even after only a week of using it. I have lots of hyperpigmentation on my pale face and this has made such an improvement in my skin tone! I will keep using this! I love everything by Bliss.
No-if you have sensitive skin
KellyW from BELLINGHAM, WA
For girls of all ages who know they have sensitive skin, the Vitamin C Moisturizer combined with the Vitamin C serum sent me to Urgent Care with a swollen, red, itchy & sandpaper-like skin after just one use. I loved the idea of this product. I've successfully used other "Bliss" skin =care products without any issues. But for whatever reason, this Bright Idea line within the brand gave me a sever allergic reaction. Just thought I would leave a review and perhaps save a "sensitive skin girl" from a week of being uncomfortable in your own skin due to a product.
sticky residue but great product
jodin from sacramento, CA
Leaves somewhat of a sticky residue on my skin so I prefer to use it more so at night and use the watermelon moisturizer during the day. But my skin is looking great and looks and feels noticeably softer, my texture is already disappearing.
Love this moisturizer
Layna from Pennsylvania
I've been on the hunt for a good, thick moisturizer that feels and looks great on my skin and I found it! It smells amazing and I already see a difference after 2 uses (paired with Bliss 2-1 fab foaming cleanser). The formula is a bit thick so a little goes a long way. It may take more "effort" to rub in, but I think that it's worth it.
desireem11 from undisclosed
The product is decent but not amazing. It's thick and smells nice but after using it daily for 6 months, I haven't noticed a difference in my skin being brighter. I have noticed that it seems to clog my pores and does make me break out.
Alex from San Jose, CA
This is SO firming/tightening but doesn't hurt, and it makes my face (especially my dry cheeks) feel really soft and cushy. It also gives my skin this really nice glow, which is awesome since I tend to have really dull skin. Will be re-ordering!
salehas5 from undisclosed
I was skeptical of a drugstore Vitamin c cream. But this is good. Not on the moisturizing factor but on the vit c and brightening factor. I see a subtle glow and my skin feels happy with this cream. Love it.
