Most Helpful Positive Review Love this product and this brand!
I'm so excited to see that Ulta is carrying Mad Hippie! I have tried every product from this brand (with the exception of their SPF) and the vitamin c serum is the stand out product for me. I am very particular about good clean ingredients in my skin care and this brand definitely delivers. I have bought this serum twice, which says a lot because I'm always looking for something new and better. I tried multiple vitamin c serums before coming back to this. The texture is amazing. It's not greasy like many others. It absorbs quickly and feels light weight. It helps even out my skin without redness and irritation. I highly recommend. Great product for price point.
Most Helpful Critical Review Nowhere near as effective as L-Ascorbic Acid serums for me
I hate to say it since I love many of the Mad Hippie products (especially the eye cream, cream cleanser and antioxidant face oil), but this Vitamin C serum wasn't a win for me. I wanted to give this one a try because traditional L-Ascorbic acid C serums do cause some irritation on my sensitive skin. This one definitely doesn't cause the irritation thanks to MH's use of the gentler "SAP" version of Vitamin C, but it also doesn't do any of the amazing things for my skin that the L-Ascorbic form does. I used up the bottle and saw very little improvement in brightening, absolutely no lightening of my age spot or evening of skin tone. MAYBE another few months of use would bring these changes about, but honestly with L-Ascorbic Vitamin C serums I notice some brightening, clarity, and fading of hyperpigmentation in about one week that only continue to improve with longer use, so ? I'm just personally not convinced the form of Vitamin C they are using here is capable of all of the things L-Ascorbic does. I also really prefer to use products that are tried and true/proven to work, and there just aren't enough independent studies done yet on this newer form of Vit. C. Truth be told, if I had never tried LAA vitamin C serums I might really like this product, but in comparison this just does not even come close for me. That said, if your skin is just impossibly sensitive I think this is certainly better than not using any C serum. I also know that everyone's skin will react differently; a lot of people out there do seem to love this product.

I use the Vitamin C serum in the day, and Vitamin A at night along with the philosophy purity daily exfoliating face wash, and moisturizers. This works so well, but I didn't think it always did, so I tried new brands and ended up back here. HOWEVER I discovered that after washing my face, and toning with exfoliating pads, that adding aloe Vera gel to my face, then the serums while it's still wet from the aloe Vera is a game changer. I use less serum during application, it's definitely more effective, and the results are amazballs! So yes adding aloe Vera is the beauty hack. You're welcome ladies&gentlemen
I Swear By This Stuff! ❤️
Abi the Animal Lover from OH
I always wipe my face off with a cold wash cloth in the morning and then apply a dropper full of this to my face! I rub it in with clean, just washed hands and then I use my face roller that I keep in the freezer, right after I apply this vitamin C oil! My skin is always bouncy, bright and tight the entire day after using this.
Bonus points because this product is cruelty free < 3
I love Mad Hippie products and I will continue to use them! ( this bottle also lasts me 1-2 months and I use it religiously every morning. ) would probably last longer if I only used half a dropper full.
Can't live without it!
Abby from Ohio
This is a must-use in my skin care routine! It's hydrating and has evened the tone and texture of my skin.
Lbanana from Philly
Was super excited to try this product. after months of using about 5x/week I've seen absolutely no difference in my skin so it definitely wasn't worth the money
LJack from Florida
On my second bottle! Never looking back..
I love this product!
H from IL
My face is so smooth. Don't forget to put on sunscreen when wearing this product!!
My go to for years
Bailey from Nashville, TN
Use this daily. Has improved the appearance and texture of my skin. Great for people with acne/pigmentation scarring and anyone who gets a lot of sun exposure
Didnt notice a difference
Lauren from Florida
So it's good in that it didn't irritate my sensitive skin but I really don't think this is potent enough to make a difference like I saw with my serum from The Ordinary. Wasn't impressed with this at all.
Mermaid from Sacramento
Looooove this Vitamin C. My family suffers from early sun spots and I noticed I was starting to get them. I started using them and so far have been able to keep them at bay. Complexion is radiant when I use this.
The Glow Up I Need Every Morning! 🌞🤩
Lauren from Colorado
I originally bought this since it was an award winning serum by Allure in hopes to brighten my skin in the winter months. It's now summer and I use this religiously! (3-4x a week in the morning). The serum leaves my skin glowing (literally!) and I've noticed extreme improvements in my skins pigmentation (it's now even out and ridden of dark spots). You can NOT find a brand with such CLEAN ingredients. I now use Mad Hippie products for all of my skincare needs and I will never go back!
No results seen
Sashay from San Diego
I used this product in the mornings, pros: formula is lightweight but after finishing the entire product my skin looked the same.
Maybe for some, but definitely not my skin type
Aubrey from Covington Louisiana
Ok so I bought it because I needed a vitamin C serum and I had heard nothing but good reviews. I have never had bad skin in my life (I'm 19) and I broke out SO much around my jawline and upper cheeks and forehead. I am also super red and my texture is insane. I don't wear makeup on the daily and my skin type is very normal. I don't have sensitive skin, acne trouble, I am not dry or oily I am very normal but this has my skin some SERIOUS issues. If you have skin like mine I WOULD NOT!!!! purchase this.
Sab from USA
I have pigment on my skin from acne scars and have been struggling with it for awhile, and this has helped so much! I've been using this for about a month and definitely can see them starting to get lighter! Definitely recommend this, especially for those with sensitive skin who may be scared to try new products!
Alicia from California
I switched to this after using Perricone MD for the longest time. Love both, but I REALLY love this product. My skin looks amazing!! I turned 30 this year and I constantly get compliments on my skin.
I will say, I'm not sure if they changed the formula recently or it varies between states? I live in Cali and my product before always had a slight tacky feeling upon application(though it dried quickly and smoothly). I also thought the scent wasn't great but not unbearable. I've been visiting Florida and had to buy more while here. I noticed a completely different texture and a scent that I really like. Interesting!
olivia from columbia
works really well with my skin it helped w my redness!
Intend to buy again
Dinna from Tn
Easy to apply and thought it DID make my skin brighter looking!
Em from Los Angeles
I have dry sensitive skin and this brightened up my skin and reduced my dark circles. A bit pricey but I like the ingredients and it did not go bad, I saw no change in the color or consistency. Lasts me about 5 months and I only use it in the morning. If you you're new and are trying vitamin C pair it with a sunscreen please. Great vitamin c for beginners. You will see a change within a month
third purchase of this product
JJA from Philadelphia
Usually use when i get out of the shower in the mornings. Sinks right into skin, no residue. brightens face.
I think I hate it.
Imaluzzer from Midwest
I've noticed that every time I wear this, it causes my spf moisturizer to pill really bad.
Honest review to save someone from disappointment
Moxi Mack from Palm Springs
I used this product on clean freshly toned skin. The serum is light and feels like it absorbs well into the skin. However, it flakes like dead skin when you apply a moisturizer/sunscreen/ or makeup on top of it. I apply a very light coverage of foundation (maybe 1 pump when I'm feeling glam) typically I only spot cover with concealer and blend with a beauty blender. No matter how lightly I pressed, the serum flaked. It made my makeup coverage and skin texture look uneven. I will not buy again for this reason. However, if you are a no makeup goddess this is your holy grail.

I have been using for months now, and nothing has changed, my skin looks the same
Obsessed is and Understatement
AMC from Boston, MA
I love this product. I have always had terrible skin and I recently added vitamin serums into my routine.
The Vitamin C, I use in the morning after I cleanse my face then use my morning moisturizer after. I can see my skin brighten and seems to be less red.
I will absolutely be buying this again.
