Most Helpful Positive Review Soft and even
I really liked these capsules. I liked how the perfect little amount was in each capsule. I have used other brands of vitamin c serums which were a bit harsh causing redness, but these capsules were perfect. I noticed an improvement in my Skin texture and tone, much more even and softer. I would recommend this and would purchase for myself.
Most Helpful Critical Review Heavy on Dimethicone, Good for travel
This is my first experience with a capsule type serum. This type of packaging has pros and cons. Obviously it increases the amount of packaging used which means more transportation costs, environmental footprint etc. On the plus side, if you travel you would be able to take only as much as you will need. For me, this is not an ideal everyday solution.
To apply, you twist the top of the capsule and the serum will dispense right away, so be prepared. It's a white, thick and creamy consistency. Upon first application I was surprised how silicone heavy it felt. That's on me because I didn't look at the ingredients which list Dimethicone as the first. I usually stay away from silicone heavy products because they often don't absorb into my combo/oily skin easily and especially in the morning I don't have time to wait for that. However, just because this contains silicone does not make it unsafe or problematic or any of the other myths going around. It could cause issues with layering however.
When using this, take extra care to avoid the mouth area. I learned the hard way that this tastes salty if you accidentally lick it. I don't think I know most of my skincare products taste so I guess that's... interesting? I'm curious which ingredient causes this, and if this means it would sting extra if you applied it to damaged skin, like a small scratch.
All in all, it was alright. I don't think I see significant results after 1 week but I do think it helped fade a dark spot from a pimple faster. Though really I don't expect significant results in 1 week. But that's the claim so 1 week is what it gets for now. Swipe for my bare, cleansed face before & after using it for 1 week. I prefer watery serums over this consistency personally because it's easier for me to layer moisturizer/sunscreen on top, but this seems to work fine. It also feels more clumsy to dispense than pump packaging. Personally the price/product/packaging ratio is not right for me so I won't be repurchasing this on my own. I will finish using it though, and might change my thoughts once winter makes my skin drier. If I was traveling frequently, I could see this being an excellent choice though.

I use it at night time and my skin is glowing and more radiant, cleaned up my tone as well. I use it in combo with the neutrogena vitamin c cream. I recommend it. [product:neutrogena-rapid-tone-repair-20%-vitamin-c-serum]Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Correcting Cream

Ive had a skincare routine since around April and have been pretty content with my current products. Using this product has literally made my face glow! Its easy to apply and doesnt have a strong smell to it which is a big factor in buying skincare products for me. I love this product and would definitely buy it!
Caused irritation, approach with caution
kellys6 from undisclosed
I had so much hope for this product. I have used several vitamin C serums (fav: CE Ferulic from skinceuticals, but I cant regularly afford) and typically love the way it makes my skin look and feel - brighter and tighter with a more even tone and reduce dark spots. I had high hopes that all these would happen with this product but sadly the Neutrogena rapid tone repair vitamin c capsules caused contact dermatitis and chemical burns on my face that required topical steroids to reverse. My eyes turned leathery, scaly, purple and red, puffy, and generally painful. At the direction of my doctor, I stopped all products until it resolved and then added back each product I use one at a time with notes on how it effected me. I can be sure following this that it was only this product that caused the problems. I would not consider my skin to be sensitive, so ONLY if you have very resilient skin would I recommend.

This product is easy to use and made my skin feel so soft! I was surprised by how much product was in the tiny capsules. It was gentle on my sensitive skin and I look forward to continue using it.
Soft and Smooth

I have been testing this product for about a month and a half now and WOW! Im in love. My skin looks and feels great. At 41 I need a little help to keep my skin looking brighter and smooth. It also goes on smooth and not greasy. They are a little difficult to get out of the bottle at times but nothing a little extra shake cant handle. If thats my only complaint I think theyre doing a great job. Way to go Neutrogena!
high quality vitamin c!
helenameow from undisclosed
Vitamin C packaging (capsules) is very convenient and easy to use. Its a potent Vitamin C (it can tingle a bit) and I really see the result - skin texture looks so much better, no more bumpy skin!Also capsules are biodegradable Ill definitely repurchase those capsules!

The only thing I have on my face is a pimple that turned black that I got from wearing my mask. Ive been using this & it has gotten slightly lighter but its still there. I dont know if I will buy this again, I may have to wait a little longer to see if I would like to continue purchasing it.

So I used this serum for a while and I think so see some improvement in my skin texture. On the downside it pills a little and makes my skin dry during the day, even after moisturizer. Im a little inconclusive but the formula doesnt seem bad at all
juliagalanteofficial from undisclosed
Great product, I thought the twist off beads were going to be a pain to get all of the products out. but it was easy, and gives the perfect amount of product. The value is there, I would reccomend!

first, this is just fun! It is a fun look, it is different approach than other brands I've seen or used. Each capsule had the perfect amount to use which is super convenient, and even better because I always end up wasting product! I definitely noticed an improvement to my skin texture and overall skin tone which is exactly what I needed! The price of the product is okay for me. I am will to spend the money on a good product that works

4 out of 5 for me. Used correctly along with the cream it does wonders!!! Product met my expectations and there is enough product inside the capsule! Apply to trouble areas first then get the other spots. Felt some slight burning in the more sensitive parts of my skin, like right under my eyes. So I apply lightly in those areas.

Rapid Toner vitamin c serum
lisbetth_ from undisclosed
This vitamin c serum was great, it comes in just the perfect size in the little capsules so theres wasting any. I also thought they would be like some kind of oil but it was a cream, I did feel a little bit of tingling when I first applied it but didnt last long, your skin definitely feels hydrated and it gives you a glow!
I don't know!

I received this product for free to review from influenster. I was so excited to try this! The packaging was perfect. I loved the concept of the capsules (similar to Elizabeth Ardens capsules). One use and you can throw them out. Better yet, they are biodegradable. I thought the product would be a serum/thinner oil, the product texture is actually a light weight cream. When I put it on I instantly though SILICONE as it has that silicone-y feel to it and a blurring effect on the skin. I let it sit for a few seconds before applying my moisturizer. I noticed that the product start clumping on my face, and turning a white/cream-ish color. I touched the product on my face (the parts that were discoloring), and a small clump of it came off. The product started coming off. Im not sure why this happened as I hadnt put anything on my face prior too! Also, the product is all silicone based - Im not sure how I feel about that.
powerful c serum!
va_bluebelle from undisclosed
These capsules provide just the right amount of product. I like that it rubs in easy and I can tell it is working after about 1.5 weeks. So Far no side effects of irritation. I would recommend to friends.
okay...didn't really work for me

I was sent a complimentary product to try, and after using it for about a week my face had a small reaction so I had to stop using it.
andreax3 from undisclosed
I love these, theyve became a staple in my routine. I only do them at night though because it does leave my face a bit oily but it has really helped my skin and it has done wonders evening out my skin tone on my face. It also helped reduce my dark under eye.
vitamin c to the rescue
kaylam9 from undisclosed
I am a sucker for a vitamin c product, and this did not disappoint. Now that I have to wear a mask and face shield all day I tend to get a little bit of maskne. What I love about this product is that it goes on smooth, it feels like it has lightened up some of my dark spots on my skin as well as helped with my little break outs. I would recommend this product to all users of vitamin c. My skin is consistently glowing.

soft skin healthy face
londonm2 from undisclosed
This vitamin E serum was really nice on my face. It was sent to me and was my first time trying it out. I wouldnt necessarily change anything about it. It was like a pearl and very light. I did also let my mother in law that had skin discoloration and dryness try it out as well but she got a super sensitive reaction from using it. But overall if your not overly sensitive in the face its a great product. I would recommend it.

I received my voxbox a month after I got the shipping notification that it was coming. I typically like to actually use a product several times before reviewing but I ended up only needing 2 days. this stuff seemed super cool the way its packaged,but either this or the rapid tone repair cream or a combo of the 2 broke my skin out like crazy! I don't have crazy sensitive skin,super acne prone skin and I've used products with retinol and vitamin c multiple times in the past and I've never had an experience like this. It felt fine going on,but the following day I had a few pimples. I figured I would try both products again the next day and....BIG mistake!!!! I woke up day 3 with huge red painful pimples over my entire face! it took me weeks to get rid of the acne, but this Neutrogena stuff is the only thing in my regimen I changed so it had to be from that! I consider myself a bit of a skincare junkie, so I can honestly say I would NOT recommend this product to anyone unless they skin made of steel that never ever breaks out.

Made my skin softer, bright & even in just a few weeks. I'm pleasantly surprised with this product!
shaessence from undisclosed
I liked the packaging. It created less of a mess and less time for me to figure out if I used the correct amount of serum (lol). The serum gave my skin a little tingle when applied but it didnt last long and it felt sticky at first and then smooth (odd I know). Aside from that the product work well my skin and I saw results after a couple of weeks. This serum along with the correcting cream is such a wonderful combo to hydrate your skin!
It wasn't for me :(
jessicaferreira23d6c from undisclosed
Im really sad to give it a bad review since I was so excited to get these products! Im a huge fan of Neutrogena but this specific product just wasnt for me. Right after I first applied it on my face I felt a very strong burning feeling but I thought it was normal since I had never had any allergies before. Next day I applied again and same feeling, on the third day I woke up to a totally burnt skin, it was horrible and painful! I wouldnt recommend it to anyone who doesnt need this type of treatment, which I think was my case, or that has sensitive skin.
