How to Use
Rated 4.38 out of 5 stars
I love this serum! I have very sensitive skin (i.e.- can't use moisturizer or liquid makeup of any kind without a skin reaction) and this has helped me regain the natural glow that I had in my 20's. I've seen a distinct reduction in redness and and evening of my general skin tone which is amazing since I only wear powder makeup. The product promotes moisture in my skin which has improved my skin clarity and texture dramatically. Still, I find it promotes a bit too much moisture/shine (note- not grease, it's definitely not greasy for me) if I apply it in the morning under my makeup so I've been using it only before bed. I don't think it's done anything to my fine wrinkles but I swear my under eye darkness has improved which is awesome. Thus far I haven't seen any indication that my skin wishes to reject this routine so its gentle enough for super sensitive skin.
If you have problems with oily skin, I have no idea if this will make it worse. My skin went from dry to dewy in a week so, if you do try it, you'll know pretty quickly. All in all : A+ for me.
I was so excited to come across this product online. I'd been looking for a good Vitamin C serum to add to my regimen, but my skin is super picky. The ingredients here seemed so simple and wholesome, I really got ridiculously excited. But lo and behold, the ingredients listed on the main Ulta site are incorrect, and I'm feeling misled. There are a lot of ingredients that I cannot use on my skin, so back it goes. For the curious, here is the list from the Derma E site: Purified Water, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C, Stay-C® 50), Glycerin (Vegetable Derived) , Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid; Actimoist® Bio-1), Organic Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract*, Propanediol (Vegetable Derived), Microcrystalline Cellulose (Plant Derived), Cellulose Gum (Plant Derived), Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide (Vegetable Derived), Polymnia Sonchifolia (Yacón) Root Juice, Maltodextrin, Lactobacillus (Probiotic), Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Fruit Oil, Organic Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Gel Extract *, Allantoin, Panthenol (Provitamin B5), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Plant Derived), Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Citrate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylgylcerin, Natural Fragrance Oils.

This serum works great. Goes soft on face and smells like orange

I've used this consistently from April 2021 to Dec 2021. I don't really see brightening/evening skin tone, but I definitely think my skin has been more hydrated and glowy
Faith from Houston Tx
I used the entire bottle and noticed no difference. I think my hyperpigmentation scars got worse actually
Katie from Portland OR
I've been using it regularly for about two months now and my skin is responding well to it. I love that it has hyaluronic acid in it too. I personally really like the earthy smell. It's effective and works well with my makeup and other skin care products. Just like any other piece of skin care, you have to give it time.

I love this serum and I've seen results but my only problem with it is that it flakes off when I apply other products :( it doesn't work well with my moisturizer or face sunscreen
DomtheSkin from Chicago
I have used $166 and $20 vitamin c products. This was great for the value. It cleared up my dark spots from previous breakouts. I noticed my skin is plumped. My skin doesn't glow as much as more expensive serums but I don't mind adding the glow with a hydration moisturizer.

The only serum I've used that actually has some results.

I tried using this to help even out pimple scars and skin tone. For my skin I thought it helped a lot. I use this in the morning before my moisturizer at least. I don't have a heavy skincare routine but this is definitely a staple for me.
Alma from Ventura
I used this product every day, AM only, and I noticed results within the first two weeks.
I have combination skin, but I was using this product during a dry spell my skin was having.
It helped by giving me a nice glow that felt clean (not sticky) and moisturizing, even with the high Vitamin C content. I could use this, sun screen and my Glow recipe toner and i could be out the door, no moisturizer needed. Used it till every last drop, will buy again.
It did provide minor previous scar lightening but mostly just kept my existing acne from scarring. I did not breakout and I essentially used it everyday.
Geminii from PA
I had dark spots all on my chin and some on my forehead. I've been using it for 2 weeks now and I see a lot of differences. I also use a natural mask at night before bed as well as my normal face cleanser in the morning. I combine the serum with the vitamin c moisturizer they have. In order for this to work you have to give it time combine it with the moisturizer, drink water have a balanced diet AND select a cleaner that works best for you. It's a combination. You can't just use this serum alone and except it to do miracles. It works together with other things.

I think my skins rejects vitamin c, it feels dry like paper. There's no natural shine, it feels rough like I need some deep cleaning. Same thing with the night cream with vitamin c. Is a big NO for me. Lucky you if your skins likes vitamin c.
Kim from Washington
My skin loves this product
Nina from NC
I liked it when purchased the first time, used all of it. Doesn't look like much in the bottle, but lasts a decent amount of time. But I did not reach for it after I repurchased the 2nd time. The smell was a little off, maybe I got an expired batch. Maybe that's why it was on sale. Glad I tried it but will not repurchase again.

Rena from Idaho
Smells amazing! it gives my skin a glassy shine.
Jessica from la puente
didn't do anything to my face. didn't even fade my dark spots. regret buying this. don't waste your $.
Ju from Maryland
I used up the entire bottle which lasted me a few months. This product gave me a natural glow! Now that I am no longer using it I can see that my dark spots are fading slower.
Erica from Florida
The consistency is weird and doesn't seem to absorb into the skin just sits on it. Haven't noticed a difference honestly and it makes me break out quite a bit. Not a great serum.
SG from VA
This works great for fine lines and I need less foundation because it evened out my complexion so well!
Hannie from Austin
Makes my skin look amazing but I'm not the biggest fan of the smell lol
Val from California
When I first used it, the smell took me through memory lane of me eating fruit loops for breakfast before school. I have seen a difference in my skin with brightening & some hyperpigmentation but you do have to give it time. Also the serum itself does not look like the picture shown. It looks more of a cloudy yellow than it does a clear yellow.
Jenny from Texas
Second time buying it and loving it, this has clear my face so much, has help me with sun spots and acne spots. Best vitamin C I had buy.
Gi from Ohio
As soon as I stop using this vitamin C serum my skin breaks out. Keeps me hydrated and balances my skin.
Sissy from Kentucky
