I received a sample of SkinMedica Vit C/E complex and tried it because I had heard it was good. Glad I did!!I have acne prone sensitive skin with slight rosacea. After only 1 application my skin was noticeably softer.The only issue is that it can cause a bit of stinging on pimples. However, I resolve it by using RevaleSkin night cream (very soothing) to eliminate the stinging. I guess one could use any other soothing product. In approximately 1 week I noticed less breakouts and an overall improvement of my skin.The product is expensive, in my opinion, so I've begun putting it only on designated areas on my face and using Revaleskin on the rest.My skin is softer and in healthier condition than ever before, and I'll be 50 this month! I am very pleased with the results and wish I had tried it sooner.

Shabby dispensing method

3

I loved this product (twice!) until the dispenser failed.The first dispenser failed with about 1/3 of the product unused. The second time, there was more than 1/2 of the product remaining. I had to use a Q-tip to 'dig out' the remainder. Not ideal.Why not use a larger version of the tube used in the sample size?I'm not buying again until they deal with this, despite the fact that the product, itself, is excellent.

Needs work

2

I have purchased 4 bottles of this product and have had to return 3 of them because the airless pump failed. Now my fourth bottle will no longer dispense the product and there is still at least a third of it left. While I love the product I will no longer waste my money until the dispenser is improved. Too bad. I have gone back to Skinceuticals CE&Ferulic.

AMAZING

5

I received this as a chosen sample and it is truly amazing. When I checked the price it was so much more than I expected. it makes my skin so velvety smooth and brings out the natural rosy glow that has dulled as I age. There are no cons to this product except price but I will order it and discard all the others I have.

Great for Re-texturing

5

Although this is a pricey item, it does what it says it will do. As soon as the first application, the skin on your face will feel and look greatly improved...love this product. I plan to purchase additonal products in this line as budget allows.

Okay product, low quality/cost ratio

4

First of all, it makes a greater primer. I personally don't use what is marked as "primer" in the market and instead use the silicone-based serums to prepare my skin for makeup or sunscreen; they absolutely offer the same silky texture while also offering way more beneficial ingredients than those "primer"s. This one does it. Note: please use foundation with enough SPF if you use this one as a primer as it consists of VC.Second, it does offer some nice long term benefit to skin. My skin has looked healthy and firm since I used it.Third, it may not be for sensitive skin. Or at least when your skin is very sensitive. I have this very sensitive skin and I have to use some very gentle skincare product to calm my skin down to the status of being not that reactive (in a bad way) first, and then turn to this product.Fourth, the price may not be justified. It's a decent product though. So if you don't mind the budget, try it:)

Very Nice Vitamin C Serum

5

It feels great going on the skin, very silky texture that absorbs super quick leaving a matte finish (big plus for my sensitive, oily skin). It's potent, and it makes my skin tingly, but nothing irritating. I also like the short list of powerhouse ingredients (i.e., two forms of Vitamin C, two forms of E). I will write another review after using this product for a few months, but for now, it certainly looks and feels like a winner on my skin!

Trying to remain youthful in the remaining years..

I was recently introduced to this product during a facial. After using it for 3 months now I noticed little to no change in the improvement of my skin. My skin does feel firmer, although I expected more results. My Cosmetic Dermatologist recommended me another Vitamin C + E serum offered by Cosmetic Skin Solutions. The serum with C + E and ferulic is wonderful to my skin with having more noticeable results in the texture, tone, and vibrancy of my skin. I am satisfied with their serum, as I am also saving a bunch with more than expected benefits compared to the Skin medica brand.

Fabulous Product-Defunct Delivery System

5

I truly love this product and feel it is very effective and necessary for beautiful skin-but-when pumping the bottle for release of the serum sometime only a mini drop comes out and sometimes nothing. Thinking the bottle was empty but believed it was too soon to be finished-I got a pair of pliers and opened up the top-well!!!! to my surprise half a bottle was left so I had to use a Qtip to finish the bottle-is this a joke or not? I recently finished my TNS essential serum and am now wondering how much is left in that bottle that didn't pump out. The products are expensive enough but effective-but to be leaving unused serum in the bottle at these prices is a total waste-the company surely can do better with the packing system because the customer is definitely being shortchanged.

great with mineral make up

5

I use this product as a base before putting on my mineral make up. it keeps the powder in place, gives a hold. I didn't like the spray that came with the makeup. in the long run the vit c is wonderful, helps with oil control, redness, firmness, and works on my neck too!

Nice product but prefer less expensive alternative

3

My dermatologist recommended this product--cheaper online here than in the doc's office. I was very anxious to try. I've used Mary Kay's Night Solution for years ($30), so I did an experiment for 6 weeks, applying SkinMedica Vitamin C on the left half of my face and MK on the other half. After 6 weeks, I noticed NO DIFFERENCE in either the appearance or tone/texture of my face with the SkinMedica. Both products gave me a nice smooth, glowing complexion, no breakouts. I will continue with the MK for less than half the price -- on my whole face!

The Ultimate C!

5

After years of Cellex C, then Jan Marini C Esta, then Skinceuticals (several different varieties,) I am hooked on this product. It is a cross between a serum and a lotion, rather than the messy serums that leak between your fingers when trying to apply. The texture is truly lovely and leaves sort of a soft, matte finish. I use it after TNS Recovery Complex and before Ole Henriksen Herbal Day Cream, the latter of which is a good choice. I tried it under Skinceuticals SPF 30, and then I did look pasty, flaky. The trick is to have a light, but moisturizing sunscreen after. Since OH is only SPF 15, I use the SC SPF 30 for longer periods in the sun, which is really rare for me anyway, and then I simply use the C on cleansed skin when I get home if it isn't too late in the day.

silky smooth but flaky with sunscreen

4

I tried the sample given by skinstore. The product is silky smooth, non-sticky. I would love to get the full-sized, until I apply my sunscreen. My sunscreen didn't work well with this product.I could see tiny, white,flaky bits on my face.I don't have this problem with other skincare products before my sunscreen.

Great for Cool Weather

4

I really like this product. It goes on silky smooth & my face is quite soft, too. (I'm 39, by the way.) I tend to break out easily, but have done great with this vit C complex. My only complaint is that my face tingles & burns when I get warm or sweaty in the sun. I wear sunscreen every day, but this has been irritating enough that I'm gonna have to change products until the weather cools again.

highly recommended

my skin responded so well to this cream! i have 40ish fair, freckled skin- it's now soft, clear of blemishes, and the rosacea has stopped flaring up. i've tried jan marini, cellex-c, murad, and skinceuticals, but this is by far the best vitamin C cream.

Excellent!

Love this stuff. First got a sample from Skinstore and the 2nd day I used it my husband told me my skin looked awesome and I completely agreed (and still do)! Have been using this for over a month now and the tone, texture, and clarity of of my face have improved tremendously. I use it in the morning (goes on smooth and matte) under a light moisturizer - then powder foundation. I swear, my skin looks airbrushed. Took off a half star bc the pump is not the greatest - sometimes have to push several times before anything comes out - and the top doesn't come off so you can't get into it. But what's inside the bottle is sooo good.

Worth every penny for a perfect complexion. I have very sensitive combination skin and this is the only C serum that does not cause break outs. Thanks SkinMedica!

The best C

I love this C and I have tried many. Makes your skin silky, my concealer goes on smoothly, causes no breakouts and after a few weeks of usage, my skin is clearer, more even, love it!

I've never felt anything so wonderful on my skin. It calms down my rosacea and reduces oiliness considerably. My skin looks and feels so much better since I started using it, I panic when I start to run out!

Honestly I don't rant and rave but WOW...it says on the bottle some tingling/stinging is normal. I had none. What I did have was the sensation of spreading pure silk on my face. I was amazing how soft my skin felt after putting it on; so good in fact I'd rather do it 2x instead of 1x a day! Can't wait to see the long term effects.
