Most Helpful Positive Review Love!! Top 2 Vitamin C Serum for Me.
I've tried so many different Vitamin C serums between Ulta and the other top beauty site, this is one of my faves! I absolutely love the texture, the glow, the brightening, the formula (stable Vit C + glycolic acid), and it wears extremely well under makeup. My skin looks so radiant and clear! There is nothing about this product that stings or irritates my skin, and I have very sensitive skin prone to eczema and inflammation. In fact, I love the way it makes my skin feel when I apply it, so moisturizing too. Summer Fridays is my other top Vit C serum. I enjoy both Vit C products for different reasons, alternating between the two depending on my skin's needs. What's nice about SR is they offer so many starter kits to try their various products without having to commit to purchasing full size products. Me: 41 yo with sensitive combination skin, medium-tan, with some sun damage.
Most Helpful Critical Review Much better, less irritating vitamin C products out there
I've used a lot of vitamin C products from K-Beauty, Drunk Elephant, the Ordinary and Timeless. I don't usually get a reaction to vitamin c products and I don't have sensitive skin so I was surprised when my face started stinging after using this. It's a slightly different form, so I kept using it, trying to give it a chance. I wasn't noticing any results over my usual products and checked the ingredients.
I was surprised to find Limonene, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Sweet Orange) Peel Oil, and Citrus Tangerina (Tangerine) Peel Oil rather high on the list. These don't really have benefits for skin, and these types of ingredients are usually used for fragrance or greenwashing purposes (many people think a product is good if they see plants in the ingredient list). However, these are irritating and known allergens. No wonder my skin was stinging! I'm very disappointed; I had heard good things about this friend and thought their products would be better formulated.
I'm going back to my regular vitamin C, which works much better, is cheaper, and doesn't use any unnecessary irritating ingredients.

Recommend 1000% from Michigan
I got this as a gift and felt obligated to try it because my fiance said the lady at the store recommended it and it was really expensive. In my head I was thinking- "I have enough Vitamin C serums but I guess I will try it." I have hundreds of face products from Ulta and this one actually shocked me of how great it works. My skin really is glowing, soft, radiant, and more evenly toned. The best it has EVER looked. Recommend 1000% and it is worth the extra money.

Amy S. from Indianapolis, IN
I've tried several vitamin c serums, this is by far the best one and it doesn't pill under makeup! I will continue to use this moving forward.

Seems to have brightening effect. I use it as an alternative to the expensive CE ferulic serum.

I am on my second bottle of CEO, and I have noticed my skin looks better. It has dulled the dark spots and has made my skin appear brighter!
Miracle on dry, textured skin
JdubDrySkin from Arkansas
I spent my teen years damaging my skin with drying creams and soaps prescribed by dermatologists for my hormonal acne. By the time I was in my twenties, I realized it was hormonal and the damage was done. Always dry, dull skin, with horrible scarring and lines.
I started trying to repair the damaged moisture barrier in 2019 and it took two years of trial and error with a variety of products and procedures to get the results I wanted. In mid 2021 I saw my first noticeable results with Clinique 72-hour lipid repair. For the first time in my adult life, my skin looked decent. After 4 months of using it, I added CEO, and the result is amazing after only 1 week. I'm glowing for the first time ever. A few new spots are noticeably fading. I wish I would have added CEO sooner and will be a loyal customer as long as the formula stays this great.
Paige C from Texas
I use this twice a day. My face feels brighter, and the texture feels better. I always get compliments on my skin. The products are amazing! I just bought this for my daughter.

For Me, Life Changing
Essie from Maryland
I have sensitive normal/borderline-oily skin. This scent is like a citrus, orange heaven so if you're not into scents please don't spend the money on this! The scent is what captured me but after using a sample of this for roughly two weeks I fell in love with my skin. My skin tone is extremely bright and even. It really gives me that true healthy lit from within glow. I know all skin types are different but I haven't had any break outs like other reviewers. The consistency is thin and somewhat watery, kind of gel-like. Definitely recommend trying a sample before committing to the price though!
Shiela E. from undisclosed
Love what it does with my complexion
Wish I could give it more than 5 Stars!
Jennifer O. from undisclosed
I began using this product in the spring of 2020 and now can't live without it! My skin looks great! If I could give this more than 5 stars, I would!
Linda L. from undisclosed
I ran out for one week. Could definitely tell because had lost the "glow" and feel this product brings.
Kay from NY
Smells like super oranges, this is a very irritating vitamin C serum.
Sar from Chicago
I got a sample of this in a free gift with purchase and I'm annoyed now because it's such an amazing product but it's so expensive! After one use my skin looked noticeably brighter and healthier. I used it twice a day (morning and night) before I put on moisturizer. Amazing amazing amazing
