Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing, even for sensitive skin
I love this serum! I have very sensitive skin (i.e.- can't use moisturizer or liquid makeup of any kind without a skin reaction) and this has helped me regain the natural glow that I had in my 20's. I've seen a distinct reduction in redness and and evening of my general skin tone which is amazing since I only wear powder makeup. The product promotes moisture in my skin which has improved my skin clarity and texture dramatically. Still, I find it promotes a bit too much moisture/shine (note- not grease, it's definitely not greasy for me) if I apply it in the morning under my makeup so I've been using it only before bed. I don't think it's done anything to my fine wrinkles but I swear my under eye darkness has improved which is awesome. Thus far I haven't seen any indication that my skin wishes to reject this routine so its gentle enough for super sensitive skin.
If you have problems with oily skin, I have no idea if this will make it worse. My skin went from dry to dewy in a week so, if you do try it, you'll know pretty quickly. All in all : A+ for me.
Most Helpful Critical Review Ulta's ingredient list is misleading; Beware allergies!
I was so excited to come across this product online. I'd been looking for a good Vitamin C serum to add to my regimen, but my skin is super picky. The ingredients here seemed so simple and wholesome, I really got ridiculously excited. But lo and behold, the ingredients listed on the main Ulta site are incorrect, and I'm feeling misled. There are a lot of ingredients that I cannot use on my skin, so back it goes. For the curious, here is the list from the Derma E site: Purified Water, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C, Stay-C® 50), Glycerin (Vegetable Derived) , Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid; Actimoist® Bio-1), Organic Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract*, Propanediol (Vegetable Derived), Microcrystalline Cellulose (Plant Derived), Cellulose Gum (Plant Derived), Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide (Vegetable Derived), Polymnia Sonchifolia (Yacón) Root Juice, Maltodextrin, Lactobacillus (Probiotic), Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Fruit Oil, Organic Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Gel Extract *, Allantoin, Panthenol (Provitamin B5), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Plant Derived), Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Citrate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylgylcerin, Natural Fragrance Oils.

A definite repurchase!
Sarah from Richmond, VA
I just finished my first bottle of this and while I can't speak to whether or not this really improved the overall tone of my skin, I will definitely be repurchasing on the basis that it makes my skin feel good. I use it after toner/before moisturizer and I feel like it really helps to provide a nice layer of moisture and protection for my skin. It's lightweight, never feels greasy, and has a nice subtle fragrance to it. I ordered this near the beginning of the pandemic so it's lasted me almost a year! A little goes a long way, so more bang for your buck is an added bonus.
MMM from Madison, WI
I love this serum! I am 22 years old and have recently been seeing fine lines appear on my forehead. Trying to combat this, I tried out this serum and I have to say I LOVE. Within the first use I felt it tighten my skin, and after about a week and a half of using it I can say that my fine lines are disappearing. I also had pretty bad acne scars on my cheeks, and am already seeing them disappear too! It does have a slight yellow tint (that washes off when you wash your face in the morning) and smells like oranges but honestly it's so worth it for the results.
A MUST HAVE !!!
Sindy from Washington DC
I cannot stop using this, EVER. My skin looks much more youthful and smooth , my husband always asks if I am wearing makeup, because of how silky this has made my face. Quick tip: I used to have very oily skin and severe acne, but for the past 2 years I've noticed my skin changed and is now dry, I still get breakouts but nothing compared to before and I feel like with this new serum my skin has definitely improved even more.. first I wash my face with the Cetaphil Oil control foam wash, then I use organic witch hazel pads to tone my face before I put on this amazing serum & last I use the purple Aveeno Absolute Ageless moisturizer , I recommend all these products if you suffer from acne, because I did and this is what seemed to rescue me from that nightmare ! Good luck & don't hesitate with this Derma E serum, you won't regret it unless you have some sort of allergic reaction to it.. so Good Luck !

I have always had dry skin. I've been using this since April and wasn't happy because of the size but it's now January of the next year and I am buying it again. My skin hasn't had dry issues since. I use it once a day either in the morning or before bed. I'm truly inlove.
Perfect for daily replenish
Midwest from Chicago
I wasn't expecting for this to be my miracle serum at this price so I'm pretty happy with it's daily use results. I did read prior comments about skin sensitivity and issues with this product and I did get a minor irritation from it at first. But I waited a few days to go back to using it and it started to work with my skin just fine like it got used to it. I also only use one pump of it for my face and mix a drop of water to spread it. I like how refreshed and energized my skin looks in the morning after applying it at night. I also like this as a moisturizer before applying makeup because it doesn't cause greasiness.
Good but It smells horrible
Mon from Los Angles, CA
After using this product daily for 2-3 weeks, I received a lot of compliments that my skin looked brighter and tighter. However, the reason for the 3 stars is the smell - it smells so cheap ! Like, fake sugar. It feels like I'm rubbing fruity pebbles on my face, which makes the stickiness even more unbearable. I would buy this again if the scent changed, but right now I'm looking for another cruelty free vitamin c product.
Jax from Utah
I've been using this for 2 months now and it does nothing! I have a lot of scarring from acne and was hoping this would help, but I see no difference at all. Horrible. Waste of money.
I recommend it!
Jessy26 from United States
I love the smell! It really helped my skin and I would definitely recommend it to someone!
I would buy this product multiple times!
Sarah from Alcolu, SC
I used this for about a week and already noticed my skin looking more shiny and youthful. Plus it smells great, kind of like fruity pebbles and is cruelty free.
Bh89 from Charlotte, NC
This is a great vitamin c serum for a great price! I noticed a difference in my complexion after a week of using it! I also have sensitive skin and this did not break me out.
BUY THIS NOW !!!!!!!
Abby from Texas
I got this in a skincare gift set , and omg this is awesome . I wish I had it a couple years ago . When I would wake up and my skin look so bad . Best serum ever . If you want you skin to have a glow ASAP buy this .
Megan from San Francisco
I used this product every other day for a couple months. I feel like it did diminish fine lines on my forehead, BUT it broke my skin out like crazy. My chin is covered in small pimples and a few big zits. I have little bumps on my forehead and cheekbones. I usually get a pimple or two on my chin during my cycle, but never have I experienced anything like this. I really wish this product worked for me, but I'll be returning.
Bad for Layering
Jennie from Diamond Bar, CA
I follow a meticulous skincare routine that consists of 8-10 products. I have never had a problem with layering because all my products seem to go well together and absorb beautifully. I bought this Vitamin C to replace a very expensive serum that I had only to be disappointed. It did not layer well with anything that I own. I even tried it by itself with only some moisturizer on top and to no avail. There was a lot of pilling that I have never experienced before and this was the culprit. Overall I will be returning and not recommending.
I love this serum!
Meers from Nashville
I have normal to combination skin. This serum does not feel heavy on my skin nor too light; I guess it has the right balance for my skin type. My face has been loving it so I bought two more and I have been recommending it to my friends since.
BROKE ME OUT!
Maggie from Tulsa
I was really excited to try this product. I really like the pump and texture of this serum, it just really broke me out! Would not recommend for sensitive skin.
FOREVER IN MY ROUTINE! Give it time!
Jennifer P. from South Carolina
When I first bought this, I thought it was too tacky, and may have broken my face out, so I left it alone for a while. In my mid 30s, my 2 issues are acne and antiaging. But I hate throwing things out that are full. So I decided to give it a second chance, and now I'm in love with it. I think I wasn't applying it correctly the first time. Here is my updated day time routine: I wash my face and neck with the Derma E Hyaluronic Acid face wash. Then I take 1 pump of the Derma E Vit C serum, and pat it all over my face/neck while its still damp. Then I apply Vit C moisturizer, which I also pat and "push in" to absorb. Once my face has drunk up all that goodness, I finish with the Andalou Naturals CC cream SPF30 which I pat on, pat pat pat. No pilling, no breakouts, total even skin tone, no tackiness, and a dewy glowy flawless finish. Make sure you are pushing it into your skin, it'll drink it right up. I love that all the items I use are mostly toxin free, cruelty free. I love that I can get them on sale or use coupons, plus they last me a long time. And I can visibly see my face being repaired and anti-aging, no more acne spots. I can use less makeup. I wish I had started on this routine sooner! (Night routine: Derma E Salicylic Acid wash, Derma E Peptide Moisturizer, Derma E Vit A oil, and Burts Bees maximum strength spot treatment.)
Helped with spots and clarity
Tania from Joliet, IL
This smells so good! Like a fresh orange! I love using it in the morning and I really believe that this has made a difference.
Keep using it
Bearsbunny from Hampton GA
I use this day and night and have for over a two years. I had dark spots from hormonal breakouts and this totally cleared those within a month of consistent use. I now use twice a day. I tried a different brand that is 4 times the
cost and saw no difference. Love love love!
Helped with sun spots
Man from Dallas
I am mixed with darker skin and have always struggled with sun spots and dark marks, ever since using this it has changed my life. My skin is bright and clear.
Not worth the hype
Margie from FL
I wasn't impressed with this product. I returned it
Skincare Lover from Chicago Il
I apply this vitamin c serum on dark acne scars and it helps fade them leaving my skin looking bright and even. A little goes a long way. I do not use on my entire face, just the dark areas I'm interested in restoring. It actually works better than prescription strength fade creams. It does the job for it to be concentrated. I recommend it!
Great Intro to Vitamin C
Chubs from Cincinnati, OH
1. Cearra uses this
2. Great into serum for vitamin c. Extremely gentle and also stable
3. I do two pumps into my palms, rub them to together, and then spread it across my face and neck. I find it applies best that
4. I love using it after the Derma E Radiance toner, followed up by Neutrogena hydrogel and Derma E sunscreen. There is a tacky substance but after applying my moisturizer and sunscreen my skin is happy and plump.
5. Trying out others to see if there are others more hydrating in winter months, but I'm sure I'll be back to this!
great product, great price
Kate from Michigan
I've been using this consistently in the mornings for a few months now and I really like it. My skin has a glow to it and a more supple texture. I don't mind the smell, in fact I kind of like it. reminds me of fruity pebbles lol
