You've probably heard all about the Vitamin C serum trend taking the beauty world by storm, but this stuff seriously takes it to the next level. SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic serum is a daytime, Vitamin C serum that not only lightens lines, firms skin, and brightens your complexion, but also provides environmental damage caused by free radicals. You really can't ask for more in a daytime serum, except for maybe a more reasonable price point.

The price. Ouch.


Who's it for? While just about any skin type would benefit from this serum, it's especially good for dry, normal, sensitive, and mature skin. Additionally, anyone with concerns about sensitization, dehydration, discoloration, aging, or sun damage would do well to give this product a try. 

Benefits: In addition to brightening, this product will undoubtedly increase firmness and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles - fast.

With 15% pure Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), the serum will also against oxidative stress, and the Vitamin E (alpha tocopherol) will neutralize free radicals and replenish lipids. Additionally, the ferulic acid will enhance the antioxidant benefits of Vitamins C and E, evening skin tone and diminishing discoloration.

Texture and fragrance: Absorbs easily and feels light on the skin and once applied will remain effective for a minimum of 72 hours. though the fragrance does leave something to be desired. However, for a product this effective, we think you will be able to get over that part.

Key ingredients: You know it's good when you find only a hand full of items on the ingredient list, including Vitamin E, Antioxidants, Ferulic acid, and Hyaluronic Acid. And, of course, you know you will find a considerable amount of Vitamin C in this product - 15% to be exact. With such an all-star lineup of ingredients, no wonder this stuff is so effective at producing proven results.

Price: Okay, we get it, not everyone has $166 to blow on a 1-ounce bottle of anti aging serum. What we will say, though, is that reviewers tout this as a "miracle serum" that is well worth the investment. Plus, a little goes a long way with this product. Even with daily use you can expect this serum to last you a good 6 months.

Additionally, if you wait until the Dermstore site has a 20% sale (typically twice a year), the price seems a bit more manageable.
