Thank you so much for your candor. Really the only thing I can say I've liked about it so far is that its sucked right into my skin and leaves the matte finish. Otherwise in the week I've been using it, it's a bit drying. Otherwise I don't really have any feelings toward it so I'm thinking it's a no for me.

Would love to hear your thoughts on the Youth to the People Vitamin C you note you had just started at the writing of this. I have just started it and I love that it disappears instantly into my skin and is matte but not sure if it's worth the $62 price tag.

Hi Jennifer, for me I didn't notice any brightening effects or really anything particular as a result. However antioxidants help protect our skin so their purpose is more preventive than reactive, which is why I don't want to write this serum off as completely useless. Would I pay the full price for this, no, because there are definitely better options out there for my skin type. Hope this helps!

My favorite Vitamin C is ascorbic acid although it's also not the most stable form. However, the SkinCeuticals formula C E Ferulic is my absolute holy grail of all time. Ever. Can't live without it. Not to sound dramatic but the world would come to an end if I couldn't have it. LOL. The smell is something one needs to get used to but it truly is an outstanding C serum.

Excellent article and research! Thank you so much!

The SkinCeuticals one is a HG for so many people, I really need to try it one day!

I never was really interested in vitamin c, but learning what it actually do for the skin and because I am getting up in the age, I have considered it. However, while choosing which product is best to use, I am concern about the cost. I almost wish there was one that could be used that doesn't have to break the bank. This article did help, though. If I do decide to splurge, at least I have some idea on what products to look into.
