      I used this product on a Monday night and the next day I had a severe allergic reaction. My face got very swollen and itchy. I will be returning this product to Ulta for a refund.

        This my favorite beauty product! I love the texture and easy application. The scent is almost non- existent which is perfest for my sensitive skin and eyes. It is multi-purpose as it brightens, lightens, smoothes and evens the texture.

              I looked at a number of C products before purchase. It is expensive. I am very pleased. It is a very good non irritating yet powerful C.

                I would give this product 5 stars if it wasn't for the fact that I still haven't received it in the mail yet. I have used it before though, and I love the lightweight, non-greasy feel of it! Also, it smells really good too!

                    Comments about Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester Serum:

                    I noticed improvement the first time I used it. I hate wearing foundation but I do because I have blotchy uneven skin tone from sun damage. I use it morning and night for about 2 weeks now and it has made marked improvement eliminating the blotchiness and discoloration from sun damage. I use it all over my face, around my eyes, and neck. It is also reducing the fine lines around my eyes. This is pretty anazing stuff!

                        A:

                        Yes you can layer this with other serums. I would suggest layering with Perricone MD serums since we know you can layer the Vitamin C Ester Serum with ours. Or try it out first on your wrist to ensure no reaction if using with another product.

                        Yes, it does! Just one to two drops are needed for the entire face & neck. Allow to fully absorb, then follow with your moisturizer and makeup. Enjoy!
