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.

My age spot is fading!
Vivianne from Central Texas
I've used this product for 6 weeks now, and my skin is noticeably brighter, and my age spot is so much lighter! I'm pleasantly surprised by this product, and I'll continue to use it. It stings just a little bit for a few seconds after I apply it, but I have very sensitive skin.
Reduces dark spots
gennyelizabeth from undisclosed
With continuous use, it really reduces dark spots and the first signs of skin aging. I recommend it to keep the skin very soft and well cared for.
I don't like how it feels
G1982 from New Jersey
I wanted to love this so bad ! Love the single precise dose , love that the capsules are biodegradable. However , It caused my sunscreen to pill . It makes my skin feel like it's filmy . I'm going to finish it up , but I will not repurchase .
No Results After 30 Days
pVA1 from Richmond, VA
I used the Rapid Tone Repair Vitamin C Serum each day for 30 days and did not see any changes. It was a waste of money.
Lisalou236 from St Louis, MO
I love the serum but not the delivery. Can it be sold in a bottle for easier access and less waste?
it burned my skin
travelgirl from california
the first time i tried it, i felt a little bit of tingling and it went away. the second time - my skin started burning and i had to wash it off. I could not put anything on my face for a week because everything after that would make my face irritated. Good thing I work from home. Sadly, i had to return it.
This product helps my skin feel so soft

I use this product every morning after using Neutrogena Hydro Boost Cleansing Gel. My skin feels healthier, smooth and soft. The dry condition of my skin has noticeably improved. I am very pleased with
this product and would recommend to mature women.

Im a fan of the packaging, the little capsules are so cute but this product makes my face itch like crazy. Even with a moisturizer! It has helped my skin a bit but the itchiness is too much.

Love this product! Took a few uses before I noticed any changes. It doesnt take much and spreads easily. Can still put make up over it but dont use to much or it can make your face feel kind of oily.

I received the neutrogena rapid tone repair serum and moisturizer a few months ago. I was so excited because I had been looking for new serums and moisturizing products. I dont know what I ever did without this product. I gave it some time to do its magic and Ive never received so many compliments on my glowing skin!

I recently received this product to try and Im in love with the results. My face feels so healthy. I feel like its has bounce to it as opposed to sagging and lifeless. My face looks more youthful and brighter. I cant wait to see how it continues to transform.

I love the packaging first of all. The way my skin feels after purchasing is amazing! The smell of the products is also very pleasing. The result of the tone repair is awesome.
katt14 from undisclosed
I just bought this serum capsules. Tried it just on Thursday, My face immediately turned red & itching. Am very dissatisfied with it.
That is an understatement. Id have no idea if it can ever be improved. If I could rate hit 0, I would. Definitely wouldnt recommend
Great serum - noticeable results in days
Sally from Nebraska
I've been a long time user of other vitamin c serums, and the other brands have discontinued so I was very excited a trusted brand like Neutrogena came out with a similar high concentration product. The serum is vastly different than what I've used before, more creamy than silky, but it works so much better! I noticed a huge difference in my problem areas, and battle perioral dermatitis. The redness disappeared in days. And the dryness in a week.
I hesitated with five stars because the high concentration of vitamin c not counterbalanced with something like vitamin e has caused my nails and cuticles to discolor. With other products I usually rub my hands well so they can benefit for the serum. I will have to switch to washing it off :(. But I'm definitely going to keep using it!
My other small complaint is the package. It's very space saving but the little fish get stuck together easily (even from the store) and can be hard to get out. Other companies use wider jars, im sure this is why.

I love this vitamin C serum!!! I love how my skins feels and looks after I use it. I love that it is pre measured, it's also fun to twist and squeeze the serum lol.
