I've used a "do it yourself" Vitamin C powder before and loved it. It was a different brand that came in a subscription box. It was the first Vitamin C product I actually saw an improvement in my skin.
After I ran out, I tried a few more serums, but none of them came close to being as effective as the powder. I decided to give this one a try as it is the same one ingredient in both. To my surprise, I loved this as much if not more than the expensive subscription box stuff.
It has absolutely no smell. It mixed well with the Good Molecules moisturizer, and my skin can handle it daily. (Mind you, I can use retinol daily now, too.)
It doesn't take me long to mix the moisturizer and powder together daily, and it's absolutely worth it as my skin is smoother, brighter and has less hyperpigmentation than before I started using this. I've had it for about 6 weeks now, and have barely made a dent in the product. I suspect this will last me 5-6 months. An effective Vitamin C at such a tremendous value? This is now a holy grail in my daytime skincare routine.
I tried mixing this with two different serums, the Good Molecules Discoloration Correcting Serum and the glow serum from Glossier. In both cases, I first mixed the powder into the serum in the palm of my hand and then applied it to my just washed face and neck. As I applied the mixture it became ridiculously sticky, like I was smearing jelly or something sugary all over my face. I tried giving it time and tried applying my second serum over top, but nothing helped. I also tried adjusting the concentration by using more of the serum with the same amount of powder (1 scoop) but no change. There was no way I was going to be able to apply sunscreen and makeup on top of it. After multiple attempts and having to wash my face and start all over, I gave up and decided to return it.

This stuff has become a major staple in my skincare routine! This with the peptide serum does miracles

I love this, It's hard to find a true C that works.

I do notice a slight difference in the tone of my skin but I'm not sure if that's worth the metallic smell I'm stuck with all day

Love it! I am a long time vitamin c Serum user. I added this to my snail mucin Serum and I noticed immediate results. My skin was immediately brighter and "tight" looking. Directions say to use 3x a week. If I use it in the morning after exfoliating, it makes my cheeks a little red (I have dry, sensitive skin, prone to redness. )

smells metallic and doesn't go away after application. I noticed a very minimal difference in my skin, not enough to make up for the smell for me.

I've been using a vitamin C serum pretty consistently for a little over two years now. I had been struggling finding the best one for me. Other products were either too expensive, way too tacky or horrible packaging. This stuff is great! I mix it with the good molecules hyaluronic serum and it just instantly brightens. I believe that it really has improved the texture and appearance of my skin these past few weeks!

Bought this to test out adding Vitamin C to my weekly routine and was pleasantly surprised. I add it in with my normal moisturizer and used at night only, mainly 1-2 times weekly. And I do feel I wake up with lighter pigmentation and brighter skin.

I have used C Serum for years. With serum the C breaks down fast when opened and the potency will start to fade. I love having the C powder and I mix into my hyaluronic acid and it works great. I use every third day. To get the full potency of C this is the way to go.

I've been using this for a few months and still have tons left. It lasts a long time. If I use it too frequently or with too much powder at once it makes my face blotchy with red spots -- so typically I use it twice a week with just one little spoonful each time. I mix it into the good molecules hyaluronic acid serum and it makes my face a little brighter and more awake-looking. recommend!

I honestly could not give the best review. A week of putting this on (it says 2-3 times a week) I started to break out and get an allergic reaction.
Kenn from Tennessee
This is an amazing product, it melts right into my moisturizer. This is perfect because I have extremely oily skin and the Vit C serums usually make me really oily. This is just what I needed!
Laura from Bakersfield, Ca
Although I liked the concept, when I added it to my face I noticed my face smelled weird. I am very sensitive to smells and it bothered me throughout the day. If this is something you don't care about I feel like it might work better for you.

Honestly don't know how more people don't know about this product! It dissolves so fast when I mix it with lotion and I started noticing a difference with my acne scars within 2 weeks of using it. Been using it for about 3 months now and my acne scars are 99% gone and my skin is bright and I still have soooo much left! This is guna last me for a year! Buying it for my twin and mom now too. Can't beat that price

I love this! The difference was noticeable right away, to me. I've used similar products before though that have offered similar results. But I'd say this comes out on top due to its price point and that it can be added to my facial routine.

This product integrates into serums really well. A small tingle when you start using it is normal as this is very potent (it's pure L-ascorbic acid). I really the packaging and love how affordable this is!
Kelsea L. from Atlanta, GA
Love this vitamin C - it's the active form (L-ascorbic acid) so it gives quick results. Love this!
Polatak from California
And so far I love it, I use it 3x a week. I do all my skin care routine and I notice a difference on my skin even my husband and family have complimented my skin.
Juno from San Francisco
Hated it, did nothing for my skin. Wish I could get a refund honestly.
