Pretty good - 14-01-2019 by

Pretty good on antioxidant, the only thing I'm not happy with is there's no instruction on the label how many months you have to finish the bottle once open, with such pricey product we hope to use it correctly.

Brightens - 08-01-2019 by

This truely brightens up my skin. So far I really like this.

Will keep trying - 07-01-2019 by

My first bottle is nearly to the bottom, haven’t seen any obvious effect yet but my skin feels plumped after applying. I will try another bottle after this.

Still waiting ... - 01-01-2019 by

Recommended this by a friend who swears by it - its quite expensive but having read many reviews this is the vitamin C serum to go for given the concentration. Its easy to apply and I haven't had any adverse effect but not sure I have seen any benefit as yet. Its quite pricey so hope to see some results soon!

Great product - 29-12-2018 by

It was an expensive product but worthwhile since I could see my face skin becomes tighter and brighter. And it’s easily absorbable not oily at all. Use it before the daily moisturer and sunscreen. I will keep buying it.

Worth every cent - 29-12-2018 by

This, applied every morning, has brightened my skin and in conjunction with Skinceuticals Retinol used in the evening my skin has never looked better. Skinceuticals May be expensive but their products absolutely work giving the best results. I wouldn’t even bother with another brand anymore and I had tried a lot prior to discovering their products.

Amazing if you do not have oily skin - 26-12-2018 by

I’m a girl who does her research so l was very excited to get my hands on the CE Ferulic - Skin Ceuticals cult, age preventing Vitamin C. However, l had read a New York dermatologists review where she stated that the product was not for oily skin. I thought my oily skin days were over, however, shortly after l started using it - 3 red zits appeared on my nose. I’ll be purchasing the Skin Ceuticals Phloretin CF as my next vitamin C serum. This is the one the NY dermatologist recommended for oily skin.

My all time favourite - 12-12-2018 by

I started using this in my early 20's and I'm now in my 30's and attribute my amazing skin to this one product.
A product worth its price actually works!

Best serum - 05-12-2018 by

I've been using this product for 3 months and I have to say yes it does make my skin look lot smoother and have noticed some of my pigmentations have slightly faded. Skin also feels tighter then before. Would definitely keep using as it is one of the best serum I have used so far. Highly recommended!

Great product! - 03-12-2018 by

This serum is amazing. Made my skin feel incredibly soft and look more even in tone from the very first application. It’s a bit pricey but worth the money. Definitely worth buying!!

Can’t recommend enough - 09-11-2018 by

I'm a skincare addict and I love my skincare products This product really does what it says it does. There is a reason why it is on every top list. With that said, it's crazy expensive But worth every cent If you can afford it, buy it!

The best skin serum available - 23-10-2018 by

This is the best skin serum I have ever used! Do not be dissuaded by the high price mark this serum is worth every dollar. The active ingredients including vitamin c and ferulic acid help to brighten the skin, refine the texture and minimise pigmentation. I have also noticed that my skin feels so much more plumped as well and is alot more hydrated. My skin no longer looks lacklustre and dull. I use this every morning with sunscreen on top and it helps to prevent free radical damage and future ageing. This is recommended by dermatologists that is how good it is! I could not live without. The only negative is that it does have a funny smell, almost like deli meat but this is just the active ingredients and I am not able to smell it after I moisturise. Despite the smell this is a must for your beauty regime.

Worth it - 17-10-2018 by

Is it expensive? Yes. Is it worth the money? Personally, yes it is. The secret to getting the most out of this product is to apply it in the morning underneath a quality sunscreen. It does seem to oxidise quickly but I just make sure to use the dropper quickly and put it back in the bottle and tighten the lid straight away, A small amount goes a long way.

Still waiting for the 'amazing' results - 24-09-2018 by

I bought this serum as a beauty investment hoping for a game changer in my skin care. I have only been using it for two weeks so I need to give it more time for the results. I have still experienced a break out while using it, although I do not think its due to the serum. My post-inflammation marks do not appear to be lighter as yet. The smell isn't too bad at all and product goes on nicely. It is fine for sensitive skin. I am looking forward to hopefully seeing some results from this product with continued use.

A little bit pricey but effective. - 24-09-2018 by

My skin is from oily combination to normal. Because I'm just 25, I can not say at the moment if this product helps the me for the anti-ageing process, but it definitely helped even out my skin tone. Although it can be easily oxidised and the colour changed after just 1 month using, in the label they say that it will still remains effect. I would say that you should wait 3-5 mins after using this one before layering other products so that the pH of your skin to balance the skin's pH level for the most effective result.

Will definitely be a repurchase for me, despite the price. It really works! My skin is clearer and fine lines are less noticeable. So glad I decided to give this a try. - 10-09-2018 by

I've purchased expensive products before with no results so I really hesitated to buy this due to the price. Yes it is expensive but yes it does work! I noticed results after the first use. I've only used this for a couple of weeks so far but I know I will definitely repurchase. The difference it has made in the clarity of my skin and fine lines is noticeable. The smell is not pleasant but it dissipates quickly and I would prefer that to something heavily perfumed.

My go to product - 03-09-2018 by

Love this. Have been using it for a year now and have noticed a difference in he clarity of my skin and the radiance. It’s also helped with pigmentation

Worth it! - 16-08-2018 by

Expensive product but it really does brighten and firm. I use it twice daily though, not just in the morning as recommended. At night, I apply to clean skin and pat a hydrating night mask lightly on top to seal it in. The smell disappears within an hour. Overall, my skin is bright and clear.

Pricey and stinky but super effective! - 16-08-2018 by

I absolutely love this product. It has helped to even out my skin tone and has helped with my hyperpigmentation and acne scars. As others have mentioned, the scent is absolutely awful but you do get used to it. It is very expensive, but for me it’s worth the price. I apply 4 drops in the morning and follow with the Hydrating B5 Gel for the perfect makeup base.

Expensive but (sort of) worth it - 14-08-2018 by

Holy cow, this stuff is ludicrously expensive! Yes, it is probably the best Vitamin C serum on the market, but I can't afford to auction off a kidney whenever I have to repurchase it. I got a largish sample of this and loved it, but I just can't bring myself to fork out $180+ for 30ml of product. My quest for the perfect (cheap) Vit C serum continues...

Best! - 14-08-2018 by

If you are considering upping your skin care routine this should be the first thing you ad- it is worth the price! I love it, my skin is glowing, it completely transformed my skin . I have sensitive skin and this did not irritate me at all.

Love this magic serum - 13-08-2018 by

Skin looks so much better hydrated and plumped. Yes the smell is not amazing but you get use to it. Would buy it again for sure!

Instant results - 13-08-2018 by

Skin instantly smoother, brighter and firmer.
Only need one small drop every other day so product goes a long way.
Only downside is that it has a slightly strange smell which lasts a few hours.
Highly recommend

Best serum ever! - 09-08-2018 by

I'm a 40 year old with a tendency for dry skin. I've been using this serum for 6 years. I cannot live without it. I have spent a lot of money over the years on different products but this is one that actually works and keeps working. It is the only skin care product that has helped to keep my skin clear of pigmentation and wrinkles. Expensive but lasts me 4 months.

Amazing product! Changed my skin completely - 08-08-2018 by

I've heard this product from some where from YouTuber then I bought it after. It was but hesitate to buy because of price,,, but best decision ever!!! My adult acne has gone and now I have smoother skin ever in my life!!!

Great brightening serum - 07-08-2018 by

My face is so much brighter after using this! I have combination skin with an oily t-zone and dry cheeks. I use this each morning and have already noticed a difference after just 2 weeks. The only negative things I would say would be it does make me a little oily and the smell isn’t the best but If it’s results you’re after, this does not disappoint.

Not suitable - 31-07-2018 by

I have a combination skin with some acne scar and enlarge pores. I bought this when i saw many positive reviews. To me, it didnt help my skin at all , just making my pores become more obvious.

Expensive but worth it! - 24-07-2018 by

This is the only product i would splurge on because it really works. You get what you pay for. There is no dupe as they hold the patent for the ph level. Love love love

HG product - 18-07-2018 by

I love love love this so much but I find it very frustrating because it's so expensive and every time I buy it I only get about a quarter to half of the bottle used before it turns brown. I wish they made a smaller option so I could at least get my money's worth out of it fully because it really is the best.

Noticing a difference already - 12-07-2018 by

When I started using this I was having a lot of redness and break outs. I have used for three days in a row and I would say it has halved! Can't wait to see more results. Pricey but too early to tell if not worth it

Love it!!! - 11-07-2018 by

Just ordered my second bottle. Have been using this for a year and can confirm this has definitely improved my skin texture.
I have had dark spots on cheeks, it’s visibly reduced now since using this product. It’s pricey but definitely a must have for every skin type.

Wow! - 10-07-2018 by

This is the most expensive skin care product I have ever invested in. I had it in my shopping bag for weeks before deciding to bite the bullet and buy it. And I'm so glad I did. Although the smell is quite awful, the product absorbs quickly, and the smell dissipates after a minute or so. I have quite acne prone skin, but at 32 am also concerned with anti-anti-aging. This product hasn't broken my skin out, which is a relief. I have noticed that some of the red marks on my face have started to fade after a few weeks of use. My skin generally looks better, and more even toned. I'm hoping to see the results continue the longer I use it.

The Holy Grail of Skincare - 04-07-2018 by

I purchased this product after reading so many glowing reviews from beauty bloggers and everyday consumers alike. I didn't want to like it because the price was so exorbitant. I'm happy (but also slightly sad) to admit that it does actually work. My skin is so smooth and even-toned. It completely blitzed other Vitamin C serums I've previously used in terms of effectiveness. I have decided I may have to sacrifice some of my other expensive skincare to keep using this as it is having the most transformative impact on my skin. I haven't had issues with oxidisation as yet however it is Winter. I think in Summer I may need to store the product in the fridge. I leave it in its original cardboard box in a dark cupboard and screech at my boyfriend whenever he leaves the cupboard open. I would recommend this product to a friend.

The best serum! - 02-07-2018 by

The price is expensive, but it is well worth it. I was a bit hesitant and waited weeks to buy this, I should have bought it sooner! My skin is dry and oily, I also have pimple scars, along with small dark freckles that have been appearing in random spots. I derma roll often and I have been looking for a good serum. I have been using this serum for a month now, everyday of the week and applied in the mornings. After one use I did notice a slight difference, my skin looked more even. After a week it still looked the same but it had that glow. I started using it after derma rolling and that's when I noticed more of a difference. My skin tone is now more even, I had redness too and now they seem to be gone. I haven't noticed a difference with my scars, but I'm sure it will take time as they are a bit deep. I focused on a freckle for about two weeks derma rolling over it and applying the serum and the freckle has almost faded! This is deffinately worth the buy. If you are like me, waiting weeks and weeks coz your are thinking about the price tag. Don't wait. Just buy it, because it does work!

Good product - 02-07-2018 by

This product maybe expensive but it has helped with my breakouts. I also feel protected against the sun when I combine it with the SkinCeuticals sunscreen.

Excellent product!!!! - 27-06-2018 by

I've heard a lot of good reviews about this product but it's too pricy until there was promotion on Adore Beauty, and I then decided to give it a try.
WOW! It worths every cent, my skin never feel better, fuller, my freckles faded, a little fine line under my eyes faded too. Will definitely repurchase it.
Express shipping, got the product the day after order made. Every happy customer

Evens and Protects Skin - 21-06-2018 by

I purchased this after much research into what Dermatologists themselves use. This particular product appeared in most their routines.
It is very pricey but I decided worth the risk. If I could have one skincare product that actually worked over ten less expensive ones I would be happy
The serum comes in a dark glass bottle which I liked as it helps keep ingredients fresh and more active.
To use, you simply dispense 4 or 5 drops into hand and smooth over cleansed face each morning. I was immediately shocked by the smell. It was awful. Like hot dog water!
The serum itself was quite a watery texture and needed to be applied fast before it soaked into hands.
It soaks into skin super quick and leaves no residue. Thankfully the horrible scent disappears fast too!
After a few weeks of use I honestly am glad I purchased this. It has made me more confident and comfortable in my skin.
Fine lines,marks are diminished and my skin just looks healthier and smoother.
This fab product has definitely earnt itself a permanent place in my routine!

Amazing - 16-06-2018 by

This serum really does brighten your skin. 10/10

Mum loves it - 12-06-2018 by

got this for my mum, she is 53 and very new to using serums for the skin. she has had dark spots and pigmentation since many years and this serum is so good and potent that it has actually helped even out her skin tone and make a huge difference to skin quality and texture. she has been using this religiously since 4 months. her skin is super sensitive and literally every new product reacts but this one has been a dream so far. really good !!! worth the price tag

Worth it , lightened my melasma - 01-06-2018 by

This serum has been a blessing to my skin. I have melasma and it has not removed it but lightened it a lot and also made my skin brighter. A little goes a long way. Only use a small amount for your face otherwise your skin won't absorb it very well. Wait a few minutes before applying your SPF. Feel great knowing your skin is protected for 72 hours.

The best of the best of serums - 25-05-2018 by

I am a devotee of this serum. It never fails me and continues to pack a punch with every single use. Yes it is expensive but a dermatologist friend said it's the only one she would recommend so I went with it and have never regretted it. It melts into the skin and leaves zero residue. It's definitely helped with my hyper-pigmentation and inflammation. Never go without this product.

The only skincare product you need - 24-05-2018 by

I purchased this serum as I was recommended by a dermatologist.
I use it morning AND night although the directions state only use during the day.
Although it is quite expensive it has lasted me 8 moths and I’m still going, I only use 3 or 4 drops per use.
My skin has become more hydrated, has a better texture, and looks glowing.
It is the only skincare product I would never be without.

Feels great on skin, but needs time to see result - 22-05-2018 by

I have done laser to remove acne scars, and clinic recommended this serum for post recovery. I personally don't see a huge improvement yet, as I've only been using it for 2 weeks, so maybe still too early to tell.

The texture feels good on my skin, absorbed really fast. I think it takes time to see big improvement for most products, so far I haven't seen what the product indicates it can deliver yet, I will give it a month and then update my new review.


I have never used a serum as effective as this one! I have to save up for it, but i never regret it! love it! if you can afford it, you must get it!

Effective Vit C serum - 08-05-2018 by

I’ve used this for years and I probably won’t ever switch to a different Vit c product as it’s the most effective I’ve found. It sinks straight in, and keeps my skin glowing and strong. I spend a lot of time in the sun so this is like skin insurance for me.

EVEN SKIN TONE - 08-05-2018 by

I have only just purchased this product and have been using for ten days during the day and I have already noticed a more even skin tone. I am so excited to have purchased this product as it get's rave reviews on almost every beauty site. It is also a patented product by Skinceuticals. You only need a very small amount and the bottle dropper is ideal to get the right amount so it is easy to use. So far so good - but I will know more in a month.

Absolutely amazing! - 18-04-2018 by

If you're going to invest in one really amazing product for your skincare routine I would highly recommend that it's this product! Although it's quite expensive it's absolutely amazing and does exactly what it says it will. I now understand why this is a favourite among so many people. A lady recommended it to my mum and she told me about it and I'm so grateful she did! After using it for a week I've noticed that my skin tone is more even, brighter, more radiant and I now prefer my skin without any foundation on it (which is huge for me since I usually want to wear foundation and concealer whenever I go out). It does smell a bit funny but the scent only lasts for a minute or so and the benefits of what this product does far outweigh the scent.

Lives up to the hype - 12-04-2018 by

This is one of those projects that you see on every beauty lovers ‘must have’ list. Celebrity, beauty blogger or just a random person who takes an interest in skincare, they all say that this product is one of their top favs.
I must admit, having tried this product, I can see why everyone is raving.
If you are going to commit any money to your skincare, then this is a product to have in your arsenal.
For anyone over 40, you have nothing to loose by trying this.
The trick to any effective skincare is consistency of use and buy the best that you can afford. I highly recommend you try this.

Not sure - 11-04-2018 by

I was recommended this product by a beauty therapist as I have pigmentation I'm trying to get rid of. It feels great and I enjoy using it everyday but for the price, I haven't noticed any difference in my skin. My pigmentation is SLOWLY getting lighter, but I'm also getting skin needling done. I'm going to try other Vitamin C serums before purchasing this again due to the price.

Well worth the money. - 05-04-2018 by

I have used this everyday for the last two weeks and my skin is already looking more even and fresher. I have pigmentation, rosacea, sun damage and blotchy skin. But after the 3rd to 4th day, I noticed my dark spots were not as noticeable and my skin was looking calmer and less red. They recommend 4-5 drops, but I can cover my face, neck and decolletage with 3 to 4 easy. Just rub it between your hands and dab it on. It goes a long way, but is not oily or greasy. Absorbs quickly and I haven't noticed any change to how my makeup applies. It has a light smell that quickly dissipates and I honestly do look forward to putting it on in the morning. It's nice to know I'm doing something good for my skin.

I am now wanting to check out the rest of the SkinCeuticals' range.

Great serum - 03-04-2018 by

No wonder this serum is so popular - it is a great product and makes my skin feel much smoother!

Great product - 13-03-2018 by

It's an expensive serum but you don't need a lot of product so it lasts about 3 months. My skin feels really good since using it and some of my less stubborn dark spots have faded away. I've been using it ever morning over 6 months now and I love how my skin feels. I wish it was cheaper but it's the only product in that price range that I buy.

Amazing serum - 06-03-2018 by

This is the gold standard vitamin C serum, recommended by many dermatologist and skin experts. I use it in the morning on cleansed skin. It doesn't feel oily on the skin and other products go on smoothly on top. My skin looks brighter and I know this is protecting me from environmental stressors. It has a slightly off putting smell (like bacon), but the smell dissipates quickly and it's worth it for the results. I've taken one star off on account of the high price but I would definitely repurchase and recommend!

Best thing I’ve done for my skin - 27-02-2018 by

I have melasma and this serum has brightened my skin and began to fade my melasma within a couple of weeks. While the melasma is stilll there (and I don’t expect it will ever disappear forever), the skinceuticals ce serum has produced amazing results. It’s given me the confidence not to apply foundation all the time.
I’ve tried laser, light therapy, brightening products, you name it ... I’ve spent a fortune on it. This product has actually made a difference.
I use it in the morning after cleansing. I’ll definitely be repurchasing

Very Happy Adore customer - 23-01-2018 by

I have normal to combination middle aged type skin. I used this product together with SkinCeuticals corrective gel daily through out my thirties. Then Sadly the beauty salon that stocked this product changed hands and discontinued line. Skin tone has slowly deteriorated the past two years:< EUREKA!!! I found Adore online, stock my favourite products, an Australian company, affordable minimal purchases. I have resumed using the C E Ferulic in combination with Photo corrective gel, daily, as per the product label direction, under my sunscreen and makeup. Within weeks, I am SO HAPPY :> my skin tone has evened out and a more youthful glow has returned to my complexion. Thank you Adore, I will be continuing to purchase my favourtie products and looking forward to exploring other lines offered on this website.

my favourite SkinCeutical product - 07-12-2017 by

This is my favourite SkinCeutical product and the one I keep repurchasing. Although on SkinCeutical website, it says this product is for normal or dry skin type, I found it works just fine on my combination/oily skin. I have mild rosacea on my cheeks and around my nose, it doesn’t cause any irritation or breakout or make my skin oilier. It doesn’t eliminate any existing sun damage immediately, but I do notice those acne scar/brown spots start fading away after a couple of months. I only use it once a day in the morning, depends on the weather and my skin condition, I layer it under either SkinCeutical Hydrating B5 Gel/H.A. Intensifier or Tony Moly Intense Care Live Snail Ampoule before putting on the sunscreen. It is a very good prevention serum.

Radiant Skin - 22-08-2017 by

I've only just started to use this product for about two weeks and I'm already starting to notice the little differences. I've had multiple people tell me they have noticed an extra glow and radiance in my skin and I find it is not as dull as it had been. I'm excited to continue using this product and seeing the increase of benefits in my skin. Definitely going to keep this as a morning must have! It has to be one of the best working vitamin C's I've tried :)

Protects and Prevents Pigmentation - 19-02-2015 by

While it is painful to spend so many pennies on a serum in one go, this serum will last you a long time (even with daily use it lasts me a good 3 months). The formula is quite thin, so you don't need to apply a lot of product to get an even distribution on the skin. It sinks in quickly and doesn't feel thick and greasy. It doesn't smell the greatest (my boyfriend says it smells like rubber) but once you apply moisturiser and makeup over the top, it's barely noticeable.

Because the serum contains 15% vitamin C, it does a fantastic job at evening out your skin tone and most importantly - I haven't developed any new pigmentation since using this serum. If you use the serum under sunscreen, it also boosts your sunscreens UV capability (four fold actually, according to studies). Bonus! It also works well on breakouts. If I have an active breakout on my skin, I don't have to worry about this serum aggravating my skin further. If anything, it reduces inflammation and helps my skin heal faster.

The pennies are worth it when it comes to this serum, because you are getting a very effective and advanced formula. I also love that you can buy it from Adore Beauty for a touch less than any other Australian retailer. I know that my skin is happy and protected from environmental aggressors when using this serum every morning :)

Leaves Me Moisturised & Fresh Faced - 14-12-2014 by

When I started using this product, my skin was VERY temperamental. I'd just suffered a huge eczema breakout all over my face, and my skin wasn't handling it well at all. I was scared to try this product at first, considering the sensitive state my skin was in.

I can now confidently say that this is a great Vitamin C product all round, and works perfectly on my sensitive skin. It feels very moisturising for a serum, but I don't feel like it's going to make me break out. It makes my skin look dewy and fresh, and I love knowing I have that extra protection from UV rays.

Another fantastic thing about this product is that it really absorbs into your skin, and you can feel that it's not going to rub or sweat off - however it doesn't leave an icky residue feeling on your skin at all. Just a healthy, moisturised and protected feeling.

The only thing I didn't like about this product immediately was the smell (a bit like a Vitamin C tablet), but it goes away very quickly once the product is absorbed. I love this Vitamin C Serum!
