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.

Perfect serum 😍
Best vitamin C serum from Utah
Having heathy skin is every girls dream. This product makes a whole 360' turn. It not only smells good it looks radiant on your skin. It helped me with my acne scars and when putting makeup with this it made it look so beautiful. I love this product! Totally recommend it.
Smells just like Froot Loops, but in a good way.

In love with this product!
Kris from Upland, CA
I decided to try out this product a while back and add it into my skincare regimen, and let me tell y'all... it did not disappoint! It's made a huge difference and I am already on my 3rd bottle. Try it out, have patience, and you will see results!
Wonderful product for healing acne and acne scars!
G from Florida
This product is amazing for healing both acne and acne scarring! I have extremely sensitive skin and have been breaking out all over my jawline for the past four months. Post-breakout, I would get deep red acne scars all over my jawline. I tried every possible solution: prescription retinoids, salicylic acid, spot treatments... Nothing was working.
The day after I applied this Vitamin C serum, I noticed not only that my acne scars had significantly lightened but also that my active pimples were healing much more quickly than usual. I apply this all over my face after washing and it does not burn or string my extremely sensitive skin at all.
I never thought Vitamin C would be the product to finally help with my acne and scarring, but I would 100% recommend this serum to anyone else struggling with similar issues!
Solid, not to expensive Vitamin C
Liliana from Washington
I am almost finished with my second bottle of this, I wanted to give it a fair shot. This is a good Vitamin C. I can list a few I think are better or at least I feel like I see more results with, but at this price point this is a pretty good product.
I would not buy this product never again don't recommend
Lizmax from Cypress CA
Bought this product because it had good reviews and I heard it's really good. But do not recommend when I first apply this to my face. I felt some stinging and my cheeks starting getting really red. Then it made me breakout which I'm a person that usually doesn't. DON'T BUY!!!!
Josephine from New Jersey
I've been using the whole range of the vitamin C products and I love it. My skin has never felt so supple and smooth.
Bri from Salem,ma
Its an alright product! I haven't tried too many Vitamin C serums but from what I have they're all sticky including this one, I didn't feel like this one penetrated into my skin. I have dry/sensitive skin for others like me looking to buy.
vanessa6297 from California
This serum is very lightweight. It absorbs quickly and didn't leave my face feeling sticky or tacky. I liked that it worked well with my existing skincare products. I have noticed that my skin is looking brighter. I was sent a complimentary product for reviewing purposes
Debra from Undisclosed
I purchased this for the morning use. Very nice so far. Pleasant to use. No strong scents. Absorbs quickly. I apply sunscreen over it without any residue rolling off. I would recommend this product with the Peptides and Collagen serum.
Vit C serum
KAthy from Missouri
I did not see any difference in my skin texture, fine lines or discoloration with continued use of this product.
works good on eczema/ sensitive skin.
Elli from Washington
I've had eczema on my whole body my entire life. My face and neck are really sensitive and will flair up a lot. This stuff doesn't burn my skin and helps when I get flakey, dry spots on my face and neck. I've even used it during bad flair ups when my skin is open and it helps A LOT (does cause an severe amount of burning which I expected). It feels like it absorbs into my skin and I can use it with the rest of my moisturizers and ointments. definitely worth the price point and you do get a decent amount of product. I use quite a lot (4-5 pumps) per use (I use it 2-3 times a week) and I still have 3/4 of the bottle left after buying it 2 months ago.
Vitamin C Concentrated Serum
Maffles from San Francisco
I love this product as a lightweight moisturizer and have been using it daily underneath my sunscreen for years. I have to question how effective the vitamin C component of this is though - if it's sitting in a container that's not light-protective and surrounded by water. I feel like it gives my skin a healthy glow, but that may be the hyaluronic acid component. Regardless, a good value compared to a lot of other vitamin C serums on the market!
May from Virginia Beach, Virginia
I have been using this product for about 2 months now and it is very effective as I have already seen a difference in my skin. I have combination skin. My skin appears to be more even and clear and moisturized. The texture of my skin is also very smooth. I use this product with Rose Hips oil after I wash my face twice daily, in the morning and evening. It absorbs very well in the skin. I would recommend this.
My skin looks and feels great!
Cassie with Skin Issues from Oregon
I really love this serum so far. I have only been using it for a week, but I have already started to see an improvement in my skin. I have very acne prone skin and finding good skin care products is a process for me. After a lot of research I was able to find the ingredients that my skin needs. This has helped keep my skin hydrated along with my lotion and it doesn't have a lot of ingredients that aren't nature based. I love the Derma-E products because I have sensitive skin on top of eczema on top of acne. Skin Saver!
I suppose the only down side is the smell of it, but it isn't a chemical smell, and it just tells me that it doesn't have any fragrance in it.
Colleen from Undisclosed
Perfect anti-aging serum. Some serums are too harsh. This one is great under moisturizer and doesn't sit on the face. Great boost of vitamin C.
Saved my face
Lee from Ohio
I have been using proactive for almost 4 months with my skin not getting any better.
I started using a cleanser and this serum in the morning and at night after cleansing my face and it has made a huge improvement I am so happy that I found it .
My face is very sensitive and wearing a mask had created a nightmare but this greatly made a difference!
Made my skin dry
Mika from Norfolk VA
I bought this with Vitamin C lotion and cream, how ever within using this product for few days my fave dried and started flaking. Every time I smile my I could feel my skin broke. I wouldn't recommend this if you have sensitive skin like me, specially not in winter!!!
Elena from Undisclosed
On my 2nd bottle. This is a staple. Works great under other creams or makeup. And especially great in the summer when creams just feel too heavy. It provides enough moisture alone on those super humid days. Love it. It's a must have in my collection at all times.
Brighter smoother skin
Alisa from Philadelphia, PA
This is a great serum for an excellent price. I've been applying this before moisturizer in the morning and evening and my skin is brighter, smoother, and even toned. Will definitely continue to purchase when it's on sale!
B. Ashley from Las Vegas
After I incorporated this product into my skincare routine I noticed a major improvement in my breakouts and skin tone. It does have a strong earthy fragrance, but it doesnt seem like an artificial smell but a natural smell.
I would like this serum again! I can see the difference on m
