The Brightening is reallllllllllThis product is fantastic for brightening. I notice a different in my skin when I use them in the morning, my skin looks bright and luminous all day. The result is not temporary but it builds up day by day. Even though the product has alcohol, but I find it to be not drying. Instead, I think because of the alcohol, the texture of the product is so lightweight and it absorbs into my skin without pilling, which is very important for me because I like to layer my skincare and pilling is something that I hate. And thanks to the ceramide and panthenol, I find this product to be hydrating. Hydration and Brightening, this product gives me both. Major thumbs up!!!

The pilling is terribleI have been looking for a good Vitamin C gel serum to replace the one I have been using the one from Rodin and Fields (the products are fantastic but I hate buying from a pyramid scheme). I love many other Cerave products (Hydrating Cream to Foam Cleanser, and the night time moisturizing cream) but the Vitamin C serum pills up terribly. I have tried it with numerous moisturizers and sunscreens, foundations, and even alone. The pilling is terrible. I honestly can't tell if the product works or not because it really doesn't matter if my skin is brighter or not if I have little flakes and balls of Vitamin C serum all over my face.

Not Bad, But Not AmazingThis Vitamin C serum didn't do much for my skin unlike some of the more potent ones on the market (15-20% L-ascorbic acid). Honestly, I would love to see niacinamide in this as well, since I know CeraVe uses niacinamide in quite a few other of their products. And for those with really dry and sensitive skin, we prefer seeing a fatty alcohol instead of an astringent one on the ingredients list. Also, the packaging design is not great either. With Vitamin C being so unstable, I really don't think this is the most efficient packaging. It also leaks everywhere out of the cap. I definitely think there should be improvements to this product before I try it again or recommend it to a friend.

Pretty sure it's working!For those who are saying that it turns orange, I would offer that you use it at night instead of during the day. I've been using this at night (along with the nighttime moisturizer) and the retinol serum during the day, which is much more lightweight. I switched over to exclusively using CeraVe products (except for the cleanser), and I've had several people make comments about my skin when I've posted pictures on FB or IG, which hasn't really happened before. The texture has been improved as well. I'm using the retinol during the day with the lightweight spf 30 moisturizer. Really happy with it so far!

Love the brightening!I have used this product for about 3 weeks. I can see a noticeable change in my skin. I use this daily under a sunscreen. I love it!! However I noticed that the serum is yellow now. I’ve used a C serum before from timeless and understand that once it’s yellow the effectiveness is no longer there? Other than the color change in the tube, I’ve enjoyed using this product, but don’t want to buy again if the tube isn’t going to last me long enough to finish it before oxidation. Feedback please.

Corrected my broken skin capillariesAfter finding out I had PD and broken skin on my chin fold and nose creases, I was at a loss for words and hope. I found the serum at target and bought it on a whim. It was THE BEST decision I’ve ever made. I went from MONTHS of crying to spending these past two weeks loving the improvements! My skin is still in its healing process but please buy this product even if you’re iffy about it. It’s on the expensive-ish side but again, it’s worth it!!

Changed my lifeI want to start this review by giving you all a little history: I have had acne prone, oily, red, uneven skin ever since I was in middle school. I’m an attempt to feel more confident in myself, I have not left the house without a full face of makeup since I was 14 (I’m 22 now) but with this product, I went foundation free for the first time. I started using this product about two months ago, every night after I wash my face. It is lightweight and does not feel oily or sticky on the skin. My only complaint would be that the product itself is a little runny when I personally prefer more cream based products, but as a serum it is the expected consistency. And OMG has my skin changed. My skin is brighter, more even, and looks and feels so much healthier. If I could give one million starts I would. I am finally starting to feel confident in my own skin thanks to this product.

hydrating and brighteningwith continual use for about a month i have noticed a significant brightening of my skin, not to mention it is super hydrating and my skin drinks it up. not irritating and didn't break me out at all. it's kind of got a slightly slimy texture but it's oddly satisifying. the best part is i have a TON left in the tube, it's a rather large metal tube, it keeps the product fresher and you get a lot for your money! highly recommend
