Greatest product for my mature, dryer skin. I noticed a major difference in the smoothness, glow, and hydration after just a few applications. Wish I would have tried this sooner!!! Can’t wait to see what the long term results will be! Helpful hint: when I apply anything, I always wet my fingers first. I really believe it helps with spreading and absorbing, and just feels great. Do not hesitate to try this Vitamin C Serum.

Is it safe to use if it looks orangish in color?

I have been a fan of Cerave products for 1 year as they have greatly improved my skin. I recently bought the Vitamin C serum from Cerave about 2 weeks ago but the package immediately cracked at the bottom. I am so disappointed about this. The vitamin C was already orangish before I even used it. I am not sure if it is safe because it is oxidized. And yet I bought it ver expensively. It also smells like bread.

Caused the worst breakouts

Kelsey - 22 days ago, Verified purchaser
I wanted to love this, I’ve tried several things from this brand that have been great. Unfortunately this vitamin C left me with the worst breakouts I’ve ever had in my life. I tried giving it 2-4 weeks hoping my skin was just “purging” but it never got better and if I took a break from using it for several days, my skin would start to clear, but as soon as I started using it again, the acne started. Just can’t recommend it.

I just started using this serum and so far it feels nice. However, the smell of it is so offputting, I'm not sure I'll even be able to finish the tube. It smells like rubber tires or something really industrial. Not sure if it's the metal tube like others have mentioned, I just know I can't smell this all day long.

This really does brighten and give a shine to the skin that wasn’t there before after you’ve stayed consistent with use. I’d be careful how/where you store this though because if it gets pinched/smashed in any way the metal tube leaks. Be sure to replace this product because it separates and expires! Great product from cera ve!
