The new vitamin c ester serum for the face is for daytime use and compliments the vitamin c ester 15 for nightime use. I find that using this product has brightened the dark circles under my eyes and evened out my skin tone. It is my new Perricone favorite!
I have only been using this product for 2 weeks but I haven't noticed any brightening effects. Upon application it sinks right into my skin and it feels amazing and smells wonderful. I love that my face doesn't feel greasy after I put this on. I have been using this every morning and every night but haven't noticed a big difference yet. when I looked up how to use it properly it says that it should be used in correlation with another product but since I was sent this product for free in exchange for my honest review, I can only base my review on this product. It is worth mentioning that I do not have dark circles under my eyes so the only thing I could really base this on is the sun damage and redness on my skin and neck. I have used other Perricone MD products and they were amazing, unfortunately this one did not work for me. It did leave my skin feeling soft and smooth but I would be able to find more reasonably cost products that could do the same thing. I also tried this on my lips as suggested and didn't notice a big difference. I received this product complimentary for testing purposes.

This is a nice vitamin c serum. I use it every morning and it's really gentle. I have sensitive combo skin and it melts into my face. It lays a nice foundation for moisturizer to sit on top.

I have been using this product for about two weeks and it hit me this morning how much brighter my skin looks. And it's definitely softer. I've tried other Vitamin C products, and with the exception of Clinique which is simply to expensive to use all the time, this one is the only one I feel has really made a difference. The down side is I bought it as a Beauty Steal, so it will be a bigger hit to my wallet if I decide to purchase again.
My thoughts from Winnetka
Im 39 withcombination skin And I have been using it for about two weeks straight I love notice a much smoother complexion and much more even skin tone haven't noticed anything about minimizing pores as of yet. Im hopeful.

I'm 24 and I've had acne since I was 11. Luckily my acne scars are very minor. Besides this product helping the scars, it has done a great job managing my acne when added to my skincare routine. I've used this product for about 3 weeks. I'm noticing way less break outs, and when I do get an angry red pimple, the redness doesn't last near as long as normal. Even the brown spots that like to stick around for a while don't show up like they used to. My skin is soft and smooth when it used to be bumpy and oily. Definitely recommend!

I've only been using the serum for a week, but my skin looks better and feels so smooth! The product has a nice light texture unlike some others I've tried, and it absorbs quickly. Nice fragrance, too.

This is the only Vit C serum that does not break me out. It is non oliy. It diminishes my pores and has a slight brightening affect.
Rosemary from Austin, TX
Felt good at first few application but after using 10 days or so, my face felt like sand paper. The product is so "drying." After stopping using it, It took me another 10 days to get back to normal. This serum maybe good but not for everyone.
SinghM from Fairfax
No change In my face after using for more than a month. I was very hopeful that it will reduce dark spots on my face but nothing happened
Marien from Undisclosed
The results were immediate.
JJ from Tampa
Pricy but I wanted to splurge on this because I really learned a lot from his book. Dr. Pericone Is a wealth of knowledge in his book regarding skin health. This is the first vit C serum that I feel like works. I am using proactive adapeline 0.1 at night and this during the day with cerave moisturizer as needed for dryness. I finally feel like I have good regimen, as my face is clearing up quickly and not as oily. My husband commented after just one week on my glow. I'm 38 with combo skin.
Rhonda from Washington
This has been a HUGE game changer for me. I have only been using this product for a month and see incredible changes. I have very uneven skin tone on my face as well as hyper pigmentation. Not only is my skin tone almost completely even, my hyper pigmentation is almost un noticeable. Not to mention the glow this has given my skin! I no longer wear foundation because of this product.

This serum is a bit sticky,.. and not for me. I really didn't notice a difference in my skin. I will stick with Mario Badescu for a fraction of the cost.
Lindz from Redlands, CA
I bought this line (brightening) along with the Cold Plasma when there was a sale going on. I was not impressed with either. While this one does not break me out like the other, I'm not seeing any benefits and it's been a few months now. I will say a little bit goes a long way. The part that is annoying is I don't want to waste this, so while I would like to move onto another brand to help my skincare issues (35 years old, face looks dull and fine lines - so brightening and anti-aging), I cannot justify not using this since it's not technically hurting my face. I would like it to run out already so I can try another brand. lol I pretty much wasted a lot of money on Perricone MD products. Not impressed at all, and side note, I am a product junkie, so I have ample experience judging results from products from drug store brands to the prestige brands to pricy department store brands.

I keep a very thorough skincare regimen and only introduce new products in one at a time to ensure I know what the culprit is if something goes wrong. I started using this serum instead of my usual collagen serum and let me tell you - huge mistake! After only two days I got red splotchy spots all over my face and it itches like crazy! I even used sunscreen after applying it like recommended and clearly that didn't help. Couldn't even sleep because my face was so itchy. Never using this product again.
Carol from Undisclosed
Excellent Serum. Leaves my skin glowing.
Kyle from Undisclosed
I pat this on every morning after using the Nutritive Cleanser and before applying my Face Finishing Moisturizer. Smells great and immediately brightens my skin.
Nancy from Undisclosed
There are many vitamin c serums out there, but once you've tried this one, you will be a convert!
Kylie from WA
Works! My breakouts only tend to last a few days, but the marks and redness can hang around for 1-2 weeks (sometimes a month depending on the area) and it's so frustrating. I started using this serum 3 days ago and can see a noticeable difference and my skin tone is more even. I also used this in conjunction with the moisturizer with SPF during the day.
Tatiana from Las Vegas
Love this stuff! Saw a huge difference in my face. My face looks brighter, healthy and glowy.😍pricy but worth it in my opinion
Em95 from Gastonia, NC
Although this product is pricy, I jumped out on the limb and bought it as I wanted to try it out. I'm getting ready for a wedding in November and want to step up my skincare game. This is the best my skin has ever experienced! It's so brightening, light, healthy, and smells amazing. I would 10/10 recommend!!
Kim J from Michigan
I have purchased this Brightening Serum 3 times, and will continue to do so! In addition to leaving your skin soft and smooth, it smells absolutely wonderful!
Morgan from Wisconsin
I use this along with the matching face wash & moisturizer and I have seen a dramatic decrease with my dark spots / scaring on my cheeks. It feels amazing and has a light citrus smell.
Roseanne from Phoenix, AZ
I tried this on a lark after it was recommended to me. I was told that it did a great job of breaking up melasma and dark spots. ABSOLUTELY TRUE for me! I actually like the smell and use it religiously every morning on my face, as well as the back of my hands for age spots. This serum definitely makes a difference for me. I now have no desire to try any other Vitamin C serum, this is THE one!
