    Wow I´m actually looking into this serum as a replacement of the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop!
    I get what you mean about the dry oil texture that makes me feel dehydrated and oily at the same time. It’s weird. I also don’t love the clear packaging and strange smell.

    I’ve always sensed a weird and strong smell in ascorbic acid serums that I can only describe as a balloon scent lol. I smell it in Klairs’ serum and Skinceuticals’ Phloretin CF and C E Ferulic. I cannot stand it! I even skip vit c serums on days where I see my boyfriend, get my lashes done or days when people get very close to my face because I feel like they can smell it too, even though people tell me they don’t smell a balloon on my face and that I’m insane.

    Anyways, I’m a bit scared of the artificial scent as I never use skincare with fragance but this might be my only option. I’m also a bit scared of the % because I’ve never used such a high percentage since I started my tretinoin journey. I hope this doesn’t irritate me! Wish me luck!

      I think this vitamin c will fit your needs then! It’s definitely one of the best smelling vitamin c I’ve tried, and I trust La Roche-Posay to still keep the fragranced formula gentle for the skin. Fingers crossed this works well for you!

    Ah wow I will have to try this when I am done with my current serum. A lot of vitamin C serums are kind of harsh but this one sounds super moisturizing. Thanks for the heads up on this!

    I purchased that one for my sister a while ago, before I knew the Geek 6 Gorgeous C-Glow, and she really enjoyed it. Her skin is in the sensitive side, so I wanted to start with a lower concentration of AA.
