I apply this after deep cleaning or microdembrasion and my fine lines are almost gone. I have a delicate, thin skin, yet this product is gentle enough.
The only problem I see is that this product might actually bleach eyebrows or hair if you accidentally apply it there.

Perfect Balance Of Vitamin C for Dry, Mature Skin

-March 5, 2011
For those who have a hard time using Vitamin C products due to excessive dryness or irritation, I would highly recommend this product. It has 5% Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) in a pH balanced, moisturing base. I have had no irritation or reaction, including dryness, and it applies and absorbs easily without being greasy or feeling heavy on the skin. It has helped in lightening some melasma from over exposure to the sun and over all, helped to brighten my skin as well. I use the Anthelios 60 Melt In Face Sun Cream over it on alternate days when I'm not using Neova's Total DNA Repair coupled with Avene's professional Retrinol line in the evenings. I'm pretty happy with the progress my skin has made over the last two months with La Roche Posay's Vitamin C a part of my regimen. Great if your skin is just drier in the winter and you can't tolerate higher strengths but would like to continue using Vitamin C treatment products. The only thing I really don't care for is the fragrance. It reminds me of perfume counters in department stores. The good thing is that it doesn't linger and quickly dissipates. Other than that I would highly recommend it as a core C product for mature, dry skin.

Not for Mature, Severely Dry, Hyperpigmented Skin

-February 10, 2010
I have severely dry, hyper-pigmented, mature skin (age 50) but I have few fine lines and wrinkles. The severe dryness and discoloration began with the onset of menopause. I visit my dermatologist 2 times a month for treatment and maintenance. My dermatologist gave me this product to use 4-6 weeks ago after my usual product (Ascorderm Serum XCP) was out of stock in her office. I find that Active C absorbs quickly but it dries to a matte-finish that leaves my dry skin feeling dehydrated and dull in appearance. The application of the product is not "silky" or luxurious to the touch. It is, however, odorless and non-irritating even after a chemical peel and micro-dermabrasion. Compared to other products of this type, the price of this is one is more affordable. After 4-6 weeks of twice daily use there is no noticeable improvement in my skin’s hydration, texture and tone. Active C did not deliver the results I anticipated. In short, if you have very dry and mature skin this product may not be up to the challenge. If these skin issues are not your concern Active C may be just right for you.

Used this product for years

-January 9, 2010
I was diagnosed with Rosacea and have used this product for many years with wonderful results. I have received many compliments on how smooth and clear my skin appears.

must have!

-April 23, 2008
I love this product! I live in vermont and it really helps to get me through the cold winters and hold back the hands of time. I let my friends and family try it and now they are hooked. The eye cream is great too! I just wish it was less expensive.

Horrible experience

-March 15, 2008
I used this product and had a severe reaction to it. My entire face swelled up and the skin burnt. I am now on a steroid medication to clear my face. It has lasted 2 weeks.
