Skin changes with age. Skin cell turnover slows down so that dead skin cells aren’t shed as quickly and skin loses its firmness and resistance to wrinkling as collagen levels in the deeper layers of the skin decrease. Cellex-C is a line that targets the needs of more mature skin. Their products are formulated with vitamin C, an antioxidant vitamin that boosts production of collagen and softens fine lines and wrinkles while giving skin a smoother texture and more even skin tone. Most skin care products contain vitamin C at concentrations that are too low to have benefits. Plus, the vitamin C is in a form that’s unstable and breaks down before it reaches the deeper layers of the skin. Cellex-C products are different. They formulate their products with higher concentrations of vitamin C and use patented technology to deliver vitamin C to the dermis where it can exert its benefits.

It does a great job blocking sunlight. However, I have an issue smoothing it into my skin. If I put it on after my other skin products (Cellex C) it does not spread well. If I put the sunscrean on first, before other products, then it balls up when I try to apply other products/moisturizer (Cellex C) or even just makeup.
I guess ivwould recommend this sunscreen if you plan to use it alone, without any other products. I was hoping for something to use wiith my daily routine and this just is not it. However, it does block the sun.
All time favorite!

i am a 39 y\o women from israel.
i have semi-oily skin.
i have tried all vit-c serums. i tried skinceuticals,skinmedica,obagi (also the Rx line),IS Cinical,PTR, Etc..
you name it,i tried it!
The Only one i miss and go back to is thIs serum by Cellex-c!
i just Love It! - i try others, but then always come back to this one because of the super glowing radiant skin it gives me.
listin.....dont expect "Miricales".
a good vit-c serum is only ONE "superstar" ingredient in the battle against aging skin.
it is only one of a few crucial "bombs" that fight against aging.
but it is an important one and NOT all vit-c serum are equals (and no...percentage of L-ascorbic is NOT what makes a vit-c serum more powerfull).
in order for a vit-c serum to do work its magic.....
it needs to have (first and foremost) a SUPERB "delivery mechanism".
that delivery system will take the l-ascorbic acid Deep into the skin....
and that is exactly why i think CELLEX-C is Superior to all others.
they are a Pioneer in Vit-C Skin Care and i Can definitely feel the deference!
you see ,in the past, the Cellex-C formulations were concidered superior antioxidant serums compared with those of Skinceuticals (for example) because they contained more diverse antioxidant combinations, however both companys now feature "broad-spectrum" antioxidants.
Skinceuticals claim their most photoprotective antioxidants are "CE Ferulic" and Phloretin CF (i tried the CE Ferulic,it was nice,but not "Great").
Cellex-C claims that their superior antioxidant is this Advanced-C Serum.
Further complicating matters, IS Clinical claims that their "Super Serum Advance+" is superior, and Obagi says that even one of their 10% Vitamin C serums(tried it...really nice and better then skinceuticals) readily outperforms Skinceuticals 20% vit-c serum.
Cellex-C uses tyrosine, zinc and bioflavonoids in their Vitamin C Serums whereas no Skinceuticals Serums contain tyrosine and only some contain zinc.
(BTW: The use of tyrosine is protected by a Cellex-C patent).
Medical literature states that when tyrosine is combined with ascorbic acid (vit-c) it helps to promote regeneration of new connective tissue through the stimulation of fibroblasts enabling them to create more collagen.
while a A study that was co-authored by Skinceuticals cheif medical director Dr. Sheldon Pinnell (Rest his soul in peace) holds that zinc is an important and neglected antioxidant for skin.
Zinc has been shown to help support increased collagen turnover stimulated by ascorbic acid it is an essential component of collagenase, which is required to dismantle old, defective and stiffened collagen in order for new collagen to be constructed.
so If more types of antioxidants are better than less, it could be that Cellex-C Advanced C Serum is the most optimal antioxidant (because it contains five diverse antioxidants (l-ascorbic acid, zinc, resveratrol, pycnogenol and L-ergothioneine) and also contains tyrosine, as opposed to Skinceuticals "CE Ferulic" which contains three antioxidants (ascorbic acid, ferulic acid and Vitamin E) without tyrosine or zinc.
however Skinceuticals "CE Ferulic" has been shown to provide a remarkable 8x endogenous photoprotection (no studies into the photoprotection offered by Cellex-C Vitamin C Serums have been published).
There are many grounds on which to consider whos "the best" and I do not believe you will ever find a brand which is "best" on all fields.
just do your own comparative study by using Cellex-C Advanced-C Serum for at least 4 months and then switching to Skinceuticals CE Ferulic for another 4 months.
from My personal impression?
the "CE Ferulic" was a whole lot less firming and powerfull compared to the Cellex-C "Advanced-C Serum".
i truly believe that as a vit-c serum....the cellex-c is Far Superior to all others (i have tried).
but like i said....its Only One superstar of a few that combat aging and wrinkiled skin.
remember to use it in conjunction with a few other superpowers:
1- Retinoids! (Rx Tretinoin or over the counter retinol based creams).
2- L-ascorbic acid serum (vit-c serums of your choice).
3- Glycolic acid products (Chemical Exfoliating products from the AHA groups).
4- and try to use one Top notch ultra advanced New-Age product which contains lots of peptides and grouth factors.
5- **Sunscreen** (most important **Prevention** step).
use all five crucial superstars and you are fighting aging (topically) in the best way you can (in this current day and age).
i did them ALL...i did the Whooole trip from high-end ultra "lux" brands (such as La-prairie,La-mer,Natura Bisse,Revive,cle de peau) and all the way "down" to the "Physician Strength" brands (Skinmedica,Skinceuticals,Obagi-Nu Derm program,IS Clinical,MD Forte,Vivite...Gosh im sure i forgot some! lol).
today.....i stay away from "lux" brands (except for makeup and stuff).
cleanse with Obagi "gentle cleanser" and wipe face dry.
PTR "un-wrinkle peel pads" (wipe on dry face,leave on 2-3 min,rinse with water).
La prairie facial mineral exfoliator (on damp skin right after washing of the PTR).
Tone with Obagi toner
then i use in this order (but wait 2-3 min after each product to let sink in).
Cellex-c advance C serum (4-5 drops).
Skinmedica TNS Essential Serum (A-M-A-Z-I-N-G).
Md Forte Eye cream (sometimes i layer the skinceuticals "eye balm" on top if i feel dry).
Obagi Exfoderm forte
Zo skin oclipse sunscreen (the Best and most AMAZING sunscreen in the world).
cleanse with Obagi "gentle cleanser".
Tone with obagi
Skinmedica TNS Essential Serum (also under eyes)
Tretinoin cream 0.5
Skinceuticals "eye balm"
and if you want some moisturizer ( i dont) then i suggest you use skinmedica "replenish hydrating cream" or their "dermal repair" or even a good basic moisturizng cream like the Cerave "pm moisturizer".
*i also Love the Dermalogica "multivitam power recovery masque" for twice a week "pampering" treatment.
im not into facial "masks" normally (i find them kindda useless) but i love this mask and i use at as a "pick me up" mask on long night or when i fly and my skin dosent look its best.
its a beauty mask for me and its the ONLY one i ever will use and repurchase.

My skin was super sensitive with characteristics of eczema - rough dry patches, flaking and redness. No product(s) would help and it got so bad I couldn't even wear makeup. Cellex C serum and the GLA Extra Moist Cream brought about almost immediate relief. My skin is soft and supple with no flaking, rough patches or redness and I feel that I don't need makeup but can now wear it for a "finished" look. I can't believe the improvement!

Makes skin smooth and soft and softens fine lines. I would not want to be without it.
Great eye serum for night use
-11/3/2013 1:17:14 AM
I used to wake up looking like a panda bear with dark circles around my eyes. Since I started using this serum two years ago, the dark circles have disappeared. I like the dropper lid applicator which helps ensure that I do not pump out more serum than is necessary. A bottle can last me up to six months.
Best C Serum!!

I've been a faitful user of Cellex-C for almost 10 years now. I am a huge fan of this product and use it almost daily. The only problem I have found is that the top of the bottle can stick if the serum gets under the dropper top.
Didn't work for me
-7/9/2012 6:49:24 PM
This didn't work for me but I'll admit that I have sensitive skin. I also bought it to battle a bad breakout due to pregnancy hormones, so maybe it works on normal acne. I was looking for more of a gentle mask that I could leave on overnight but this is really strong - I could feel it burning after only a few minutes. No way would I leave it on overnight. It didn't clear my acne even the slightest little bit - I would go so far as to say even that it aggravated it. It didn't leave my skin feeling any smoother either. For me it was a waste of money and I wouldn't recommend it, but again, my skin is uber sensitive and more broken out than usual b/c of hormones.

I was using Cellex-C serum, but it was slightly drying with my combination skin. I use the hydraB first, then this Cellex-C cream and then Nia24 skin strengthening moisturizer, followed by sunscreen. My skin is looking great. The old brown spots are fading and I am no longer so worried about being seen without makeup. I store the jar in the refrigerator and keep small jar in my bathroom(saved old black jar from other cream) and it keeps it fresh. The serum oxidized too fast and was more expensive.
Cellex-C Hydra 5B Complex

This product not only adds moisture to your skin, but it also adds a great smooth texture as well as slight tightening. It feels great on!

This is a product that delivers what it claims to do. It really works on tightening your skin and at the same time gives your face a smooth texture. It is expensive but I've found it is worth it.
