Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke me out! I bought this and the moisturizer, both seemed a little pricey for elf but I thought it was worth it since I LOVE the Mario Badescu Vitamin C serum but it’s three times the price. I broke out from this and the defense moisturizer. So sad I spent thirty dollars on something I had to throw away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I usually put this on right after I exfoliate but I think it's a really nice serum PLUS it smells amazing!!! Like a lemon/orange citrus smell to it! It is light weight, does not feel sticky after you rub it in and love the container! Makes it look like a high end product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Serum!!! I have been using this for about 2 months now and I'm obsessed with it! I put it on every morning! I use to put on every night and morning but felt like I was wasting it at night since its suppose to protect you for pollution. But my skin has a glow to it now and I don't wear my foundation anymore. This is light and not sticky. I use 5 drops and that is more than enough! I would definitely recommend this serum for an everyday use!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Loved it... until my second bottle I bought this off the elf website and was so excited to try it - and it lived up to expectations! I loved every thing about it! I was so excited to find out that Target started to carry it as I was starting to get low (so I didn't have to pay shipping to get a second bottle), but the bottle I got from Target is way off. The scent is nonexistent, and the consistency is the same as water. The box was sealed, so I don't think it was tampered with, but this one seems like I just have water and not serum. It's so thin that the dropper doesn't even hold it. And it doesn't feel moisturizing at all - I got it for its moisturizing properties and vitamin C, and I don't think this bottle has either. I'm not so happy that I paid $17 to get a fancy bottle of water or a very watered down product or a different product altogether. I give my first bottle 5 stars, but the second one 0, so I averaged out to give it 2 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I love this stuff, and the price is such a steal. I use it every night, after I cleanse before I moisturize. I really do think this has improve my skin. I hope this comes back in stock soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly Good ELF is usually hit or miss with makeup so I very skeptical about any skin care products. And my skin is very acne prone and oily. This serum is truly good. It's lightweight and hasn't broke me out so far (using for 30 days). It makes my skin feel very good, refreshed and hydrated. Gives a nice glow (Not oily). The bottle and glass dropper feel like high end products. I use this product at night with the beauty shield eye serum 2x a day.

 Is the best used before or after moisturizer?  I’m unsure of which part of my skin care regimen would be best to use this in 

Asked by: Mesha
It would go: cleansing & toning, face serum and then sunscreen (in the morning)/moisturizer. Most serums say to use twice daily, but just see how your skin reacts! Like if it makes you more oily, put it on before bed (followed by a moisturizer). I have combo/dry skin so I like using it both AM & PM.

How are they keeping the ascorbic acid stable in this format? Ascorbic acid oxidized very rapidly.  While it's the best of the Vit c's, if it oxidizes it becomes the opposite of an antioxidant and creates free radicals on your skin causing wrinkles

Asked by: SammLiane
Agreed, Ethyl Ascorbic Acid is much more stable than l-ascorbic acid. You will be able to tell when the product goes bad, as it will start to turn yellow.

How well would this work for under the eyes? Looking for vitamin C serum for under the eyes & love ELF!

Asked by: CurlyT
We do not recommend application directly under the eye area due to the potency of vitamin c.

Does this help fade dark spots/Sun spots on the facs from sun damage?

Asked by: Chriss32
No, I don't think it is concentrated enough for that. It might help a little, but it is not really a skincare product, more a moisturizer with extras.

Is this okay for oily/combination skin?

Asked by: Shay_C
Yes, if you have time to let it sink in a little. You won't need another moisturizer on top (you do still need sunscreen).

Ok basically has anyone used this product before and seen a major difference for good or for the bad? Im kindof new to makeup and I dont really know what good prices are for stuff like this either. Is the price fair? Is it a good quality?

Asked by: agipson
This is really more a moisturizer that will also make you look glowy and boost your sunscreen a little. I don't think you should confuse it with a skincare product with vitamin C, it will not have a lasting impact or really change your skin.

WHY do they have to put fragrance in cosmetics? It keeps me from purchasing them.

Asked by: msrychck
Fragrance is added to mask the unpleasant odor of the ingredients.
