I received this as a sample and I have to buy it!! The texture is so lovely on your skin and it goes well with your full skin care routine. The very next day you can notice a difference. My skin was smoother and more evenly toned. After a few days I didn’t even need to wear BB cream. The sample lasted a solid week and my skin has never looked better. It’s the best!!

Not Sure

Erin

I had this as a bonus sample that probably lasted a week. Don’t think it will be enough to see any difference. But for the price tag, I would expect more to be delivered. It smells nice and gets soaked into skin easily - doesn’t pill on my skin. However, I found that I need a bit more to put on as the texture was quite runny and few drops are not enough for whole face. I couldn’t see any difference with my pigmentation within the short timeframe. I’d prefer to go with The Ordinary Vit C and Ferulic Acid as they are more affordable.

  2. Best Morning Serum

    Kelly

    verified purchaser
    I shoped at AB two months ago, and sent me a sample of CF. After I used it, I think it was very suitable for me. I bought it again last week . This is really my favorite morning serum.
  3. feel oil

    Joan

    Received as a free gift, this is the first time I use CF serum. I don't think its sense of use matches its price. It's too oily for me.
  4. Brightens the skins

    Jia

    Tried a 4ml sample of it. Used it every morning after the toner, my cheek gets a bit red every time after applying, but got used to it after a week. Skin really brightened after a few days if use. Doesn't give much hydration. Need additional hydration serum after use.
    Next time would definitely try CE instead. Heard it's much better for sensitive and dry skin.
  5. really good

    li

    After using it, the oil from the T-zone decreased a lot, and the next day you can see more delicate pores and less acne
  6. Great

    Mag

    I like this brand. I like this product. I have dry skin so I use more willingly the CE Ferulic. But sometimes I change in the year and integrate it in my routine for a season. I find it effective. Only disadvantage, its price
  7. Nice

    Eneribebe

    I received sample of this from the AB goodiebag, tried it and feel it has a lighter consistency than CE and it said to help with pigmentation. I have been using C-E Ferulic for years now and I think this CF actually feel nicer....thinking whether I should switch from CE to CF as I do have some discoloration going on on my cheek. Both I would highly recommend!
  8. Best Vitamin C

    Maple

    I’ve been using this product 30ml + 15ml cf for around 5month, it may not have a rapid sense of effect, but after several month, I feel my face more brighter . Highly recommended.
  9. nice

    Q

    This is really the only c serum that helps my annoying hyperpigmentation.
  10. Absorb quickly and help pigmentation

    Ming

    After daily use, my skin was softer and brighter. Compared with CE and BE, it is less oily and can be absorbed more quickly especially for oily skin. But to be honest, it not smells that good, a scent like beef jerky. Haha
  11. it works for oily skin

    lovesean

    I do prefer this over CE serum, much better on oily skin. And it dosen't tingle as well, when I use other Vc serums, sometime a bit sensitive to them but not this one. it is quite pricy, but it is a good investment, specially for oily acne skin, we need Vc serum in the morning. :)
  12. Holy Grail

    M.H.

    This is less oily than the CE Ferulic, and has a watery texture. The scent does not bother me. My favourite Vitamin C!
  13. Nice

    Lucy

    I'm half way through the full sized product and have to say I'm not blown away. This product gets such a good rap I was expected to love it. I don't dislike it but can't really see or feel it making a difference for my skin. The good things are that it absorbs nice and quick and it's a good brand so I know my skin is getting lots of good stuff.

  15. Skin is brighter and has great glow

    Bongbongju

    Tried this as a sample from Adore but have just purchased the full size as it's the best Vit C product I've tried esp for those who lean to more oily skin! It has brightened my complexion and can't wait for the results to continue
  16. Does work

    Rudy

    Received a sample of this. My skin had previously had a bad reaction (breakout) from a skinceuticals CE sample. This product worked much better with my normal/oily combination skin type. I did notice my skin seemed brighter overall but I think alpha h offers a vitamin c serum which is just as effective on my skin (if not more) and at just a fraction of the price tag. I probably won't buy the full ...

  17. Lovely serum

    Angie

    I received this as a sample which lasted a long time. After daily use I noticed my skin was softer and brighter. It is a nice consistency and my skin absorbed it fairly quickly which is great if you want to apply moisturiser on top.
  18. Lovely

    Jess

    This product is amazing and I’ve only been using it for a couple of week. It has definitely tightened and brightened already and although this product is expensive it’s an investment. I can’t wait to see long term results.
  19. Not sure yet

    RC

    I received this as a sample which was great rather than purchasing the whole bottle (very $$$), I probably need to continue trying it or a bit longer to see the full effects.
    I have noticed general skin improvement. Given the rave reviews it gets, I am considering buying to continue testing this.
  20. soothing

    I got a sample of this. I have been using it for a week and just wow, the results are visible. I understand why everyone raves about these products. My skin looks so clear, light marks from recent breakouts has cleared in just a few days. I feel so good when I look in the mirror. Very sensitive, reactive, breakout prone skin, always cautious trying new things. This one I will purchase the full siz...

  23. Best Vitamin Serum for acne skin (normal to oily skin)

    Amy H

    I have always been a fan of Skinceuticals Vitamin C.
    So, I have tried both CE and CF.

    CE for winter and CF for summer time as I thought my skin will get more sebum and a bit more oily in summer time.

    But after trying both, personally I still prefer CE, suites my skin type (dry with uneven skin tone), as it hydrates more than CF and contains 15% of C while CF contain...

It is quite pricey but it is worth every penny. I would rather buy an expensive product rather on a chea...

  26. Brightening

    Lara

    The perfect vitamin C serum for oily skin. Despite having an oily texture, it soaks into the skin beautifully and doesn’t have an oily finish. It ha an almost instant brightening effect. I like to have this and the CE Ferulic on hand. The CE Ferulic is my favorite, but I only use it on days that I’m not wearing makeup as that, combined with my already oily skin is a makeup disaster come 3pm. Smell...

Tried only once, very pungent burnt orange smell, Light brown clear liquid, went on ok, next morning woke up feeling tight and slight sting when washing face. Face and neck started to peel from day 3 for about 1 wk. Was not painful, but did make my skin extra tight due to dryness, and couldn't wear foun...

  28. good for oily skin

    XX

    The texture is a bit oily at first but can be taken in the skin after 1-2 minuates. Not very heavy and greasy overall. The smell is better than other vitamin c products I used before.
  29. Beautiful

    Laura

    I wanted to try this after all the hype - I tried the CE Ferulic first, and found it was too oily for my skin, so switched to this one (better for oily skin) and I love it.
    My skin feels supple and plump and seems brighter.
    Great Vitamin C for oily skin - its pricey but i would recommend if you have the budget for it.
  30. Still not sure

    Sam

    I got this as a sample and its still early days so hard to say much on the efficacy, but it has quite a shiny/oily finish which isn't ideal for a product aimed at oily skin. It hasn't broken me out though or caused any sensitivity, so will continue use and see if the effects are worth the shine! Probably wont purchase the full size as for that price I wouldn't expect to have to compromise...
  31. Incredible serum

    Anthea

    I received this serum as a sample and after one week of daily use my skin is singing. It smells like a heady rum cocktail (fine by me) and has some magic properties - clarity and smoothness like I've never experienced with another Vitamin C serum. It is eye-wateringly expensive but it does deliver.
  32. perfect day serum for oily skin

    Kelly

    I am oily skin, many serums are too heavy for me, this serum is very light and easy to absorb, can make the skin brighten. I love this product.
  33. Best Vitamin C for Oily Skin

    Jess

    This has been the first vitamin C product that my skin has loved. It absorbs quickly, doesn’t cause breakouts and doesn’t exacerbate my sebaceous filaments like other Vit C has. I first got a sample and loved it so much I bought the bottle. Very expensive but for me, very much worth it! My skin is brighter, clearer and I am excited to see further improvements.
  34. FAVOURITE SKIN CARE PRODUCT

    ayokie

    This product was recommended to me by my Dermatologist as I have sensitivity to the sun and can develop rashes and discolouration. My Dermatologist told me that sunscreen is not enough. Since using it my discolouration has been minimized.
  35. Make friends with this product

    Gi Gi

    I love this product. I have fair skin, rosacea, oil slick face, and am prone to break outs (still in my late 40s!). Since using this product at the recommendation of my dermatologist my skin has not broken out once and is more controlled. Since using this product my face is no longer shiny with oil and my tone is more even and heaps less red. The smell is a little chemical when first using it but ...

  36. Good

    Diego

    I loved it. I have combination skin, decent texture, but could use some improvement, and minor dark spots, but after using this product I look as if I got back from vacation and had a facial. It does wonders for my skin! Every time I take a break from it and try something else I remember why this is my go to product!
  37. Reduced Pigmentation

    Emma

    I purchased this in one of the Christmas packs and have been using it since the end of December. I have noticed reduced pigmentation and have been using this over my CE Ferulic Serum. My skin looks noticeably better.

    I would recommend this product.
  38. Does what it says!

    Chelsea

    Really like this serum. Has helped with my pigmentation and skin tone. I love the thin texture as it soaks right in. Will definitely rebuy!
  39. Insane

    Sharni

    Great value for money! This is the only thing I have tried that actually reduces pigmentation
  40. AMAZING!

    Caseyw

    I love this product! I've been using it for a few months now and have definitely noticed a decrease in my pigmentation and overall appearance of my skin.
  41. Good product

    Xiao

    I have been using this product for 2 years. It helps balancing my skin reduce pimple
  42. Good antioxidant serum

    TiNa

    This serum is very light and absorbed so quickly when I put it on. I use this in the morning to fight against free radical damage. In the evening, I use retinol serum. Since I’ve been using these two together, I’ve got a lot of compliments on my skin. It’s a bit pricey but worth it.
  43. My brightening buddy

    MelVee

    Absolutely love this product and have been using it on a daily basis for years now.
    Whenever I'm without, I immediately notice that my skin is quite dull.
    I also love that it's great value for money.
    The bottle lasts around 12 months which is amazing.
    Highly recommended!
  44. Light but effective

    ZYE

    I bought this product after I have used the CEF serum last winter. Unlike CEF, the texture of this product is a lot more watery - lower VC concentration and replaced VE with phloretin. So, texture-wise, it is better suited to my combination/oily skin during this time of the year. (I still love CEF, but I won't use it during Spring or Summer.)
    Like CEF, it also does a great job energising ...

  46. Helped Immensely With Pregnancy Melasma

    Taryn

    Nothing helped my pregnancy melasma - not Murad - Not Peter Thomas Roth - nor Dermalogica - but this SkinCeuticals product. I use a range of items from Skinceuticals and one bottle of Phloretin CF totally erased it! I now use CE Ferulic serum but purchased the Advanced Skin Brightening Kit so if my melasma should return after harsh summers, I am ready to treat and prevent it again with confidence.
  47. Smells like flesh burn!

    Holly

    Bought this serum and used everyday after cleansing. Haven’t noticed any difference yet but the serum itself smell like something burnt..

    Don

    Fantastic serum! I have combination early signs of gaining skin that still breaks out and this serum works beautifully for me! Really brightens my skin and feels so amazing to apply it

  50. Very good product

    Jo

    It's lighter and felt more gentle than CEF. It gave me a healthy and shiny glow following by a moisturiser. It's a bit hard to tell the specific result after finishing one bottle but overall I got a more even skin tone. I will repurchase it later.
  51. Only serum I have continually repurchased!

    Di

    I've been using this serum for the past 3 years and I can say it is the only serum that I have religiously repurchased ever. It spreads easily and my skin doesn't feel oily or sticky after I apply it. I have sensitive, dehydrated, acne prone skin and have not experienced any reaction. I tried the gel version and I felt it made my skin more oily throughout the day so have gone back to this version....

  52. Makes me feel good

    Bryn

    I've added this into my routine alongside the Blemish + Age Defense, which I use at night time and my skin tone and clarity is better than it has been in years. I also like that it makes your SPF 4x stronger. I've started taking this SPF EVERY DAY thing very seriously;)

    LOVE this brand, cant wait to try more products from them! Its expensive but your face is worth it DUH.
  53. More watery than the cef serum

    K

    I tried this one after the CEF serum in hopes of treating my dark spot, but still, to no success. It is more watery than the cef serum which is a little more oily. It has 5% less vit C according to the bottle. Again, the serum doesn't seem to be improving my skin drastically but my skin is fine to begin with, apart from a dark spot I am trying to treat. I will most likely return to the CEF just be...

  55. Great for oily skin

    Ann

    This vitamin C serum is great for oily or acne prone skin. It does not make my skin break out and does not feel sticky. I only use 3 drops for my entire face and it lasts about 8-10 months. I used the ordinary vitamiin C serum before this one, but much prefer the Skinceuticals one! It brightens up and improves the overall texture of my skin, without making my skin breakout or causing any congestio...

    Gretchen

    I have normal/dry skin and had previously relied on Skinceuticals' holy grail, CE Ferulic. I decided to try the Phloretin CF as it was geared more towards pigmentation and skin brightening, but I don't think I really saw much benefit from it in that area.
    I can say that it did keep the fine lines at bay in the same way the CE Ferulic does; however, my overall skin texture and plumpness seem...

The changes it has made to my skin are overwhelming - it has smoothed my texture, removed redness, and also battles any breakouts I may have due to having oily skin.
