The new vitamin c ester serum for the face is for daytime use and compliments the vitamin c ester 15 for nightime use. I find that using this product has brightened the dark circles under my eyes and evened out my skin tone. It is my new Perricone favorite!
I have only been using this product for 2 weeks but I haven't noticed any brightening effects. Upon application it sinks right into my skin and it feels amazing and smells wonderful. I love that my face doesn't feel greasy after I put this on. I have been using this every morning and every night but haven't noticed a big difference yet. when I looked up how to use it properly it says that it should be used in correlation with another product but since I was sent this product for free in exchange for my honest review, I can only base my review on this product. It is worth mentioning that I do not have dark circles under my eyes so the only thing I could really base this on is the sun damage and redness on my skin and neck. I have used other Perricone MD products and they were amazing, unfortunately this one did not work for me. It did leave my skin feeling soft and smooth but I would be able to find more reasonably cost products that could do the same thing. I also tried this on my lips as suggested and didn't notice a big difference. I received this product complimentary for testing purposes.

I purchased this product in the 2oz, I would say this serum is great, especially for the high content of vitamin C. But, when I apply this serum to my skin, it tends to not absorb very well and flake off my skin. I would say this product could improve, especially for the price. Maybe it's my skin and the way I apply it, but for me, it's just one downside, but overall it's a great product.

This Vitamin-C serum is milky and absorbs well. I have very oily skin and this product melts into my skin and does not feel greasy. It does have an orange smell that goes away quickly. It's expensive but worth it!

I normally don't write reviews, but I was so impressed with this serum. I have oily acne prone skin, so I use this after applying Perricone Acne Relief Toner. I found it to be light, not greasy at all. The scent is nice too. After a week my skin is noticeably smoother, and it has lightened older scars and dark spots. I'm excited to see so much progress this quickly.

Results with this have been noticeable & fast! It's a lightweight serum, medium consistency and not runny. I can dot this onto my cheeks, chin and forehead and take my time in blending in to cover my face/neck, which is great as most serums tend to drip down and off my face before I've finished even dotting them on. I use it in the morning before applying moisturizer & SPF and it's definitely improved my skin tone - much clearer, brighter and my skin feels smoother too. I love how I can use this on my lips - BIG difference as lips have a pinkish tinge to them now, also can use around the eye area which I was worried it would be too strong for, but thankfully no irritation or eye sensitivity. Also no piling when used under makeup, and not oily whatsoever. Packaging is great too, simple dropper so I get the right amount of product and a non-oxidizing amber glass bottle. Yes it's a bit pricey, but totally worth it - not because it's a great Vit C serum (there are many other good ones out there too) but because I don't have to use a separate eye serum or lip product, I can use this for more or less all face areas and neck/decolletage too. -> My 'Ulta Beauty Top 7 must-have list' (My 7 favorite beauty products of all time, focusing mainly on my purchases at Ulta) < - < 1.

Don't buy if your African American with dark skin tone. It also has alcohol which dries out our skin.

Just started using this product and so far so good.
Sarrah from Phoenix
I finally had my acne under control and went to Ulta for some thing, a lady convinced me to buy this stuff… Immediately went from having zero pimples on my whole face for several weeks to at least 15! I was partially thinking it might be purging… But my skin was perfectly fine before hand so I'm not even going to wait for it to go away.
Jette from Indio california
Have seen little difference in my skin. Do not want to spend the money again to wait and see what it is like in a longer term
Kay from San Antonio
I received a sample of this and the smell was overwhelming... Smoky like a barbecue pit. Was this a bad batch or does it all reek like this?
KD from indy
I've tried so many vitamin c serums and none of them have done a single thing for my skin. I was about to give up when someone recommended this one, and I thought why not. I am SO glad I took a chance because I'll never be without it now! it smells great, instantly absorbs, not sticky at all, layers well, and even out my skin so well, leaving me glowing! even my husband noticed how "radiantly skin is! great product and fair price point for the results you get.
Sunnysenior from GA
Just started using but I like it.
Mimi from Los Angeles
I have been using this for the last couple of months and it has changed my skin yes it's a bit pricey but you only add a few drops in the morning and night. I have bad acne and this improved my face a lot
Michelle from Chester, VA
So I got this bc I heard Perricone was CCC was a dupe for Skinceuticals even though it's just a couple dollars off but I went to look at all their products and they had this for a huge discount so I got it. I left in my drawer for a week and decided to use it and wow wow wow made a huge difference in 3-4 days. I keep looking at their site and on here for another promotion which they do have but I'm going to wait a couple more days lol. I am going to get 2 more. I should've gotten 2-3 that day I ordered and so mad I didn't bc wow you will see a huge difference. This will help with hyperpigmentation and really fast at that. I didn't really see anything about fine lines but I think that one is the anime one not sure but this helps with dark spots. The best when it comes to that. I will get the other one after I'm finished with this and the 2 more I order. I can't wait! But if you have any acne marks, dark spots or any hyperpigmentation this will help asap!!!!!!!!! Did not get any free products for this review but I'm really impressed!

I use this everyday as part of my skincare routine. Of course I wish it wasn't so expensive but it is my vitamin C of choice and I like the product. I have repurchased it many times and I will continue to repurchase it and use it because I like the way my skin look.
Ally R from Rancho Cucamonga, CA
This is a nice vitamin c serum. I use it every morning and it's really gentle. I have sensitive combo skin and it melts into my face. It lays a nice foundation for moisturizer to sit on top.

after about 2 weeks of consistent use, i notice a dramatic difference!! my skin looked brighter and healthier! if you can afford to splurge, this is a great treat-yo-self
ldhock from Austin, TX
I have been using this product for about two weeks and it hit me this morning how much brighter my skin looks. And it's definitely softer. I've tried other Vitamin C products, and with the exception of Clinique which is simply to expensive to use all the time, this one is the only one I feel has really made a difference. The down side is I bought it as a Beauty Steal, so it will be a bigger hit to my wallet if I decide to purchase again.
My thoughts from Winnetka
Im 39 withcombination skin And I have been using it for about two weeks straight I love notice a much smoother complexion and much more even skin tone haven't noticed anything about minimizing pores as of yet. Im hopeful.
Kat from Florida
I'm 24 and I've had acne since I was 11. Luckily my acne scars are very minor. Besides this product helping the scars, it has done a great job managing my acne when added to my skincare routine. I've used this product for about 3 weeks. I'm noticing way less break outs, and when I do get an angry red pimple, the redness doesn't last near as long as normal. Even the brown spots that like to stick around for a while don't show up like they used to. My skin is soft and smooth when it used to be bumpy and oily. Definitely recommend!
Paige from Georgia
I've only been using the serum for a week, but my skin looks better and feels so smooth! The product has a nice light texture unlike some others I've tried, and it absorbs quickly. Nice fragrance, too.
J K beauty from Michigan
This is the only Vit C serum that does not break me out. It is non oliy. It diminishes my pores and has a slight brightening affect.
Rosemary from Austin, TX
Felt good at first few application but after using 10 days or so, my face felt like sand paper. The product is so "drying." After stopping using it, It took me another 10 days to get back to normal. This serum maybe good but not for everyone.
SinghM from Fairfax
No change In my face after using for more than a month. I was very hopeful that it will reduce dark spots on my face but nothing happened
Marien from Undisclosed
The results were immediate.
JJ from Tampa
Pricy but I wanted to splurge on this because I really learned a lot from his book. Dr. Pericone Is a wealth of knowledge in his book regarding skin health. This is the first vit C serum that I feel like works. I am using proactive adapeline 0.1 at night and this during the day with cerave moisturizer as needed for dryness. I finally feel like I have good regimen, as my face is clearing up quickly and not as oily. My husband commented after just one week on my glow. I'm 38 with combo skin.
