Most Helpful Positive Review My new Perricone favorite!
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!
Most Helpful Critical Review Didn't work for me
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.

This serum is a bit sticky,.. and not for me. I really didn't notice a difference in my skin. I will stick with Mario Badescu for a fraction of the cost.
Didn't do anything
Lindz from Redlands, CA
I bought this line (brightening) along with the Cold Plasma when there was a sale going on. I was not impressed with either. While this one does not break me out like the other, I'm not seeing any benefits and it's been a few months now. I will say a little bit goes a long way. The part that is annoying is I don't want to waste this, so while I would like to move onto another brand to help my skincare issues (35 years old, face looks dull and fine lines - so brightening and anti-aging), I cannot justify not using this since it's not technically hurting my face. I would like it to run out already so I can try another brand. lol I pretty much wasted a lot of money on Perricone MD products. Not impressed at all, and side note, I am a product junkie, so I have ample experience judging results from products from drug store brands to the prestige brands to pricy department store brands.
Red and Itchy Face
Elena the Vegan from United States
I keep a very thorough skincare regimen and only introduce new products in one at a time to ensure I know what the culprit is if something goes wrong. I started using this serum instead of my usual collagen serum and let me tell you - huge mistake! After only two days I got red splotchy spots all over my face and it itches like crazy! I even used sunscreen after applying it like recommended and clearly that didn't help. Couldn't even sleep because my face was so itchy. Never using this product again.
Carol from Undisclosed
Excellent Serum. Leaves my skin glowing.
A must in my morning routine.
Kyle from Undisclosed
I pat this on every morning after using the Nutritive Cleanser and before applying my Face Finishing Moisturizer. Smells great and immediately brightens my skin.
Love the scent
Nancy from Undisclosed
There are many vitamin c serums out there, but once you've tried this one, you will be a convert!
Works for my combination skin
Kylie from WA
Works! My breakouts only tend to last a few days, but the marks and redness can hang around for 1-2 weeks (sometimes a month depending on the area) and it's so frustrating. I started using this serum 3 days ago and can see a noticeable difference and my skin tone is more even. I also used this in conjunction with the moisturizer with SPF during the day.
My holy grail
Tatiana from Las Vegas
Love this stuff! Saw a huge difference in my face. My face looks brighter, healthy and glowy.😍pricy but worth it in my opinion
Em95 from Gastonia, NC
Although this product is pricy, I jumped out on the limb and bought it as I wanted to try it out. I'm getting ready for a wedding in November and want to step up my skincare game. This is the best my skin has ever experienced! It's so brightening, light, healthy, and smells amazing. I would 10/10 recommend!!
Works great, smells wonderful!
Kim J from Michigan
I have purchased this Brightening Serum 3 times, and will continue to do so! In addition to leaving your skin soft and smooth, it smells absolutely wonderful!
Morgan from Wisconsin
I use this along with the matching face wash & moisturizer and I have seen a dramatic decrease with my dark spots / scaring on my cheeks. It feels amazing and has a light citrus smell.
I am a die-hard fan of this product!
Roseanne from Phoenix, AZ
I tried this on a lark after it was recommended to me. I was told that it did a great job of breaking up melasma and dark spots. ABSOLUTELY TRUE for me! I actually like the smell and use it religiously every morning on my face, as well as the back of my hands for age spots. This serum definitely makes a difference for me. I now have no desire to try any other Vitamin C serum, this is THE one!
Finished the whole bottle & on to number 2!
maliwowie from Warminster, Pennsylvania
I have dry to combination skin & it has never looked better! Evened out skin tone and have a natural glow to my skin that people constantly comment on! 100% recommend to try it out!
Literally The Best !!!!
Lex from Charlotte, NC
So I purchased this to have a serum to go with my daily face wash routine and baby, this stuff is amazing! I was kind of nervous about buying it due to the fact that I have sensitive skin and was going through a mild break out that I had from using another product and didn't want to make it worst but this has been everything! I've been using it for a week now and I already see some differences in my dark marks. The only thing I hate about this product is the price! I lucked up and got it half off but the regular price is really expensive but unfortunately I'll be buying it again 😩
My New Can't Live Without Daily Habit
Kerry Lee from Santa Barbara , CA
This stuff works . I actually get a little stressed when I suddenly run out and realize it may be a few days for my next purchase . It brightens my face . The light - very light- citrusy , clean scent is a welcome experience as I apply it . My skin is noticeably brighter . First time I used it , it took about 4 weeks ish to see results ... but now I maintain it and love it . It's not a splurge but a necessity as part of my regime .
Best in its price range
Olly from CT
I have tried madd hippie, Cerave, and the ordinary vitamin C serums. I always want to go back to this one! You will see results fast but if you discontinue you will also notice a difference. I hate that it's a little pricy but it works amazing and I'd recommend it to anyone.
Ksskmommy from California
I purchased when on sale. I enjoy the feel of my skin when I apply this serum. I use in the morning after freshly washed skin. The serum sinks in quickly.
Great with long term use
Olly from Ct
This product will not change your skin overnight. It takes consistent use but the results are absolutely worth it. I use it (mostly) in the morning and night. In the winter I won't use toner and I'll go straight to this. Both myself and my partner have benefited from this amazing serum. It is kind of pricey which has made me think of reconsidering this product.
Other products I use: vitamin c face wash, and spf moisturizer by perricone
I have sensitive skin^ and tend to break out along my jawline. This product actually helped clear any lingering blackheads!
I stocked up big time on this product
Leopard Orquid from El Paso, TX
Finally something that gave me some visible results on stubborn spots. Overall brighten my face, like washing off grime. Half way through my first bottle, I could see my dark spots and blotchiness were lighter and my complexion looked "cleaner" and was smoother. I have used very expensive products and they never worked. This is silky-matte in texture, smells divine, and doesn't irritate or dry my skin. When it went on sale, I bought 4 more bottles to stock up. I use right after cleansing, 4-5 drops at night and 3-4 drops in the morning mixed with my hydrating face mist. I feel beautiful and don't have to put on the concealer soon as I wake up in order to hide my hyperpigmentation. Love it.
Definitly buy again.just wished

Love how bright clear skin looks and feels
I'm alive again!
Rinnie from Lansdowne, PA
I would like to start out by saying last year cancer and I had a huge fight, needless to say I beat it. But....with 6 and a half months of chemotherapy and 6and a half weeks of radiation it took a lot out of me. Fortunately, I'm a Perricone women and have been off and on for around 20 years, I'm 59 now. So, I knew where to go to get my skin back on track, Perricone! The C line works wonders for my skin, I simply glow. You would never know I had cancer, my skin is beautiful. I'll never use anything else. Dr. Perricones products made my skin happy again. Also, I enjoy all the free gifts, I share them with my friends.

Red bumps after one use. Scary.
AMAZING!!! This REALLY made my other products soak in deeper
Megs from Indianapolis, IN
Very easy to use, smells great and helps moisturizers soak deeper into your skin!
Not sure yet
Jim the runner from CT
I have been using this for a month. I haven't noticed a difference but maybe it's too soon. It doesn't smell good but it doesn't smell bad either. Once it dries I can't smell. Also the Vitamin C Esther moisturizing sunscreen smells fine and I put that on after this.
Great product, but
Anne from SF
The product is great but it came with broken top and without samples I requested.
