How to Use
Rated 4.36 out of 5 stars
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.
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.

This is magic in a bottle i love this. Had my dark spots on my face for 3 years. This was able to remove them in a week! I love this.

I typically use an expensive vitamin c on my face and got this to use on my chest and backs of my hands. I ran out of the expensive stuff and started using this on my face. My skin looked terrible! Bumps, blackhead and acne. Stopped using it and my skin is clear again. You get what you pay for.

I used this daily in the morning for 2 months and didn't notice any difference in brightening or evening of my skin tone. It didn't irritate my super sensitive skin and it had a pleasant texture but I can't justify recommending it or buying it again. It doesn't specify the concentration of Vitamin C anywhere which I think is an important detail they're missing. I prefer The Ordinary serums and noticed an actual difference in skin brightening when I used them
jacque from Buckeye az
I have hormonal acne and this definitely helps me control it I put it on every other evening with the exfoliating Serum and then I do a face medication ( that apparently i cant name on here?? Flagged?) the other nights
Sue from Baltimore
Not for me—gave me reaction of hives each time i used it
Dr Sugar from Tampa Fl
Absorbs into skin well and does not leave it feeling greasy or sticky. Improves skin appearance. Fragrance free and does great under makeup
MLF from Minneapolis, MN
I love the texture of this serum, not too runny, not too thick. No scent, doesn't sting. I've noticed my skin being brighter & will continue to use. This is what I put on first in the morning before sunscreen (also Mad Hippie). absorbs quickly, not sticky

When I worked for Ulta our skin therapist had gotten me hooked on this it's been my ride or die for about 3 years. I originally had bought it to help with my dull skin it had no luster and it was a bit rough to the touch. After using this I had a glow to my skin, it was supple to the touch, and it also helped smoothe it out. One of my favorites hands down and it's ALL natural.
Morgan from California
I bought this for overall texture, glow and treating hyperpigmentation. When I'm really good about using it every morning there's a definite improvement in my texture - my skin just looks healthier and smoother.
It doesn't dry me out, doesn't make me break out or clog my pores and goes on nicely. It doesn't roll on my skin.
I use it in the morning because I use retinol at night and read that retinol can make it unstable, therefore can make it not work as well. It goes on fine under makeup.
I haven't used it long enough to comment on the pigmentation because that takes a while to work, but I've heard a few people say it's the best product for that skin issue.

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
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.
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..
H from IL
My face is so smooth. Don't forget to put on sunscreen when wearing this product!!
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
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.
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!
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.
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

Dinna from Tn
Easy to apply and thought it DID make my skin brighter looking!
