Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous! I love this stuff. I’m 69 but don’t look my age. I keep this serum in the frig. I use it morn and night. Gives a glow to my skin. Keeping it in the frig and applying it cold helps tighten my skin. I will definitely be buying it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I could ask for! I've been using this for about a month now and I really do enjoy it. For an elf product the packaging is great and I've really noticed a difference in my skin! My skin is softer, brighter, and more moisturized during January. It's so easy to apply and is a skin care step I actually stick with. My occasional breakouts have also disappeared. I'm sure there are even more effective Vitamin C serums but this really does act as a pollution shield for my skin even when I don't wear anything on top of it. I will definitely be repurchasing! It is a little watery and the scent isn't necessarily citrusy to me, it almost smells like a baby wipe or something slightly sanitary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is amazing. First, it is a very light oil/serum. I was afraid it was going to feel heavy on my skin or make my combination skin extremely oily... It does not do any of that! Second, I have noticed some of the slight lines on my forehead have disappeared and overall my skin is extremely smooth. And I personally enjoy the LIGHT scent to this serum.. It is not strong at all but still adds something nice to the serum. Cannot recommend this product enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Combination skin I have really sensitive combo skin. My t-zone can get oily and my hairline, nose corners and eyebrows get really dry. I have reactions to everything. I can get red or worse scab. Within a week of using this my skin has gotten smoother and the redness has gone away. I’ve been using $30-$40 moisturizer from Sephora but don’t even need it with these drops. These are amazing. And I hope elf never discontinues this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this serum I have gone through 2 bottles of this already and My skin is much smoother and healthier Looking. I use it primarily in the mornings because that is when I think I get the most benefits from the pollution protection it provides while I am at work and out and about. I love ELF products in general and even though $16 is a bit much for this brand, it is worth it and works for me as I have dry skin. For anyone looking for a more affordable alternative to similar and more expensive products ELF has your back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gave me a Natural Glow I started using this product in September and it worked perfectly for my skin. I have very sensitive skin and it helped with my acne within a few days. Overall a good product and I would include this into your routine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product! I originally bought this back in March and now I’m just about to run out of my second bottle. I love this serum so much and it has really changed my skin for the better. Living in Michigan where the winter is sometimes super harsh, my skin was super dry and sensitive to the point where even cleansers were breaking me out. I didn’t have problems before because I hardly went outside in winter but having to walk around campus exposed me too much and My skin was rough and cracking around my lips and even though I was heavily moisturizing my skin wasn’t holding it. I was also popping my pimples because they were always huge whiteheads and feel like the contrast between the Whitehead and my dark skin was so jarring to look at that it made them super noticeable. So I’d pop them as quickly as possible because I could deal with redness but I hated how whiteheads looked, and this resulted in a lot of hyperpigmentation. So I got this serum to try and help my skin. I was just looking for something with some vitamin c so I could lighten some of my dark spots and I saw that it had “antioxidants” and I thought those will probably be good too. So I just bought it and decided to try it out. It’s amazing! My skin is AMAZING NOW! I use it morning and night in my skincare routine and it’s helped to smooth out almost ALL of the texture on my face. I no longer have any of those tiny annoying jumps that don’t turn into full blown pimples but don’t go away either. My skin no longer cracks. Although I am a little dryer in some places than others my skin is now closer to “normal” than it is to “dry” and my skin is no longer sensitive to anything and everything. I can try out new products without fear of them breaking me out~ I don’t get pimples at all anymore except for when I’m on my cycle and when it comes around it’s ONLY 1....never more than one which is a little weird in my opinion but I’m not really has helped my hyperpigmentation greatly and I now only have a few spots left on my face. This serum really helps my skin to hold moisture and I always look super radiant after using it! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this and I love it so much that I’m planning to try a few of the other products in the beauty shield line!

What's the percentage of vitamin c? 10% 15% It doesn't say anywhere...

I know water isnt very good with vitamin c... but will that affect anything if my moisturizer and toner are all water based?

Asked by: The808
Vitamin C is water soluble. There is no problem with water based products.

 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).
