I use the Perfect C Serum along with other MyChelle skincare products. At first I wasn't sure that I would continue with it, but I quickly noticed a difference after I stopped using the C Serum. I easily go through one bottle a month (if I'm lucky!) so, at $30 a pop, it's just as expensive as the high end C-serum lines. Still, I love the non-toxic MyChelle products and have found that they're as effective as they claim to be. And even though I'm now putting more serums and lotions on my face than ever before, my skin is not breaking out which was an unexpected, and welcome, bonus. Another bonus is that the MyChelle line smells great, not perfumey, but honest-to-goodness yummy.

The one negative, in my opinion, is the C Serum packaging. It would be nice if they sold a larger size with a better dispensing mechanism. The calibrated pump doesn't always dispense a full application and it stops working before the bottle is empty. I've taken to undoing and replacing the cap which seems to help as the bottle gets low. Towards the end, I just shake out as much of the remnants as I can. This stuff isn't cheap so I try to get every last bit of it!

Best deals: So far, I've found that Amazon is the best place to buy MyChelle. Their prices are consistently lower than average. You can also get deals on eBay, but you have to work (snipe) for them. MyChelle does not supply expiration dates (they are supposed to be good for 18 to 24 months from purchase), so I prefer to buy from a reputable source. The MyChelle website does have a really good sale every now and then so, if you like her products, you may want to get on the email list.

About me: I am a 48-year old grandmother of three and in the past three months, since I began using the MyChelle line, I've been carded twice and have received numerous compliments about my "glowing" complexion. I followed the suggestions on the MyChelle website and I'm using the Mychelle Honeydew Cleanser, 4.4 Fl oz (130 ml) (Pack of 2),Mychelle Firming Serum, Serious Hyaluronic, 30 ml,Mychelle Supreme Polypeptide Cream, With Matrixyl 3000 And Marine Polypeptides, Unscented, 1.2 Fl oz,Mychelle Deep Repair Cream, 1.2 Fl oz (AM), Mychelle Night Cream, Revitalizing, 30 ml (PM) and Mychelle Fruit Enzyme Mist, 4.4 Fl oz (130 ml). (I do not have any training in cosmetics or skincare so my opinions are just that: opinions.)

I have dealt with skin care issues (adult acne) for years and when I finally started researching ingredients in most of todays drugstore and even highend skincare lines- I was shocked to find out what was in them! Do the research yourself- then look at the so called "natural" products you are using now- many of them contain Parabens and petrochemicals...I found Mychelle line on the internet and have been using them faithfully for a couple of years now- Love the whole line- especially the pumkin renew cream, Vitamin C serum, and the fruit enzyme spray, oh yeah and try the cranberry cleanser as well! Great line- great company- I'm sold! Here at amazon you can get it at 22% discount and free shipping as well.

I want to start off by saying that there isn't anything that I have tried so far of the MyChelle line that I dislike; there ARE a few products that I think are simply OK and perhaps not worth the price but I LOVE the majority of the line and can't say enough great things about the company and their products! It's a 'clean' line that avoids harmful or questionable chemicals and ingredients like most other lines contain and this line actually WORKS!! I DO notice a difference in my skin texture, even skin tone, pore size (I don't believe that they can be shrunk but using this line makes them appear smaller), the small teeny wrinkle lines either are less obvious and in some cases have disappeared. The one area that it hasn't made much difference are the lines in my neck so I'm still searching for something to help me there. In the meantime, I'm using MyChelle's protocol for sun damaged skin for that area.

What I love about this Perfect C Serum is that within 2 days of using it, my skin appeared a bit more smoother both in tone (discolorations) and in texture - even immediately after washing my face so there was no product on my skin. I do tend to use more than most I would assume...I use it on my entire face - under eyes & eyelids to my neck and decollate` area. I've heard conflicting info from skin care companies in regards to layering serums...some say you can't, that what goes on first gets penetrated and the rest doesn't get absorbed enough to be worth putting on your skin after the 1st layer of serum and others say that it will penetrate through the skin but at a slower rate. MyChelle claims that you CAN layer your serums so I use the Perfect C in the evening first then layer it with the Firming Serum then follow with a moisturizer. In the daytime, I only use the Firming Serum with a moisturizer.

I have 2 compliants about this Perfect C Serum...one is that it's simply too small. The other serums are sold in larger bottles at the same price range. This Perfect C serum is sold in the same size bottle as their Magnolia Fresh Eyes...so essentially you are supposed to use this serum on your entire face but yet you are only offered enough for your eye area. So essentially, it costs twice as much as their other serums in the long run...something is amiss there!

My other complaint is actually about Amazon. I want to start off by saying that I LOVE Amazon!!! For the past couple of years, about 90% of my purchases - besides food and clothing come from Amazon. I DO realize that at times some prices fluctuate but this WAS being sold on Amazon for $33.25 (since I was tracking it in Jan 2010) and as of today, 2/8/10, the price skyrocketed to a whopping $7 MORE in ONE day! So now the price on this item is $40 and change!! About 2yrs ago, I found it a convenience that most items that I purchased were either comprable in pricing OR that Amazon's prices were lower than what I could find locally and at other online retailers. I can find this Perfect C serum for less than $40 locally and when my local health food stores have their 15% - 25% off sales, then unless Amazon will lower back their price on this to the original $33.25, I'll be buying it elsewhere and stocking up when on sale. Now granted, one item that I use on a regular basis that I have to pick up somewhere besides Amazon is no big deal but as I notice an item here and there having a price increase, then I won't be able to justify keeping my Amazon Prime membership and may have to consider going back to the brick & mortar days of shopping. I HOPE NOT - I'm too much of an Amazon fan to eagerly make that change but a whopping $7 increase for one item that I use on a regular basis that is too little of product to begin with is not settling well with me today. Hopefully Amazon will revert the pricing back...if so, I'd be more than happy to edit my review to note that Amazon (again) has the best pricing on this particular product...until then, YES! I do recommend this product but I'd suggest seeing if you can catch it on sale from a local store, MyChelle's website or other online retailers as you CAN find it for less than $40. I go through this stuff too fast to spend that much on it. I think the reason why I'm so irked about this today is that I purchased this one sale locally and have a couple weeks worth of product left and was planning on purchasing it via Amazon's Subscribe & Save program only to find out they increased the price. I felt compelled to write a review about it because I obviously wanted to share how wonderful this product was and also share that people can find it for less than $40...hopefully soon, Amazon will be one of the places where we can enjoy this at a more affordable price.

Why the 4 star review? Simply because of the small bottle size that MyChelle bottles & sells it at. If it weren't for this, this would be a 100% 5 star product in my opinion!!! I'll update any more changes in my skin as time goes on...

ETA: I spoke to a rep at MyChelle today to be certain that I'm using what is best for my needs in their skincare line and was told that their Perfect C serum is the most popular serum because people actually notice an obvious difference in their skin. When I told her that I noticed that the skin discolorations in my skin were less evident within just a few days, she thought it was due to the 17% Ascorbic Acid in it but said that she's heard some wonderful claims from this product. I was told that it's not suggested to use it anywhere near the eye area because this is so effective and the eye area is so delicate...I HAVE been using it in my eye area since I wanted it to 'do it's thing!' and I told her that I have been using and my eye area seems to handle it just fine but she strongly suggested that I don't for concern that it may too harsh for that delicate skin area.

Last tidbit: According to MyChelle company, you CAN layer up to 3 of their serums and will benefit from all 3 of them. Any more they say won't get absorbed as well AND you'll end up with 'peeling dried serum' since it would be too thick. She said the key is to only use very little if you choose to layer - she said she only uses 1 calibrated pump of each serum since she prefers to layer them.

***I DID beg for a lower price on this and / or a larger size for this since the size is the same as their eye gel yet the same price as other serums...she said she doesnt' know of any plans to do so but she would note it in their customer feedback area...I would think that if enough people asked the same, MAYBE they'd consider it?? We can hope, right?

This stuff stops my hormonal acne in its tracks. I use several MyChelle products and I love them all. For those who say it's expensive... what about the department store, "upscale" brands? They can cost far more than this and I have never seen the amazing positive changes in my skin that I have seen using MyChelle. It's comforting to know that MyChelle is also a socially responsible company looking to help people (and animals!) and create effective products free of potentially harmful ingredients. What's not to love?

Serum is light and gentle. I use this, along with other Mychelle creams at night because the creams tend to be heavy for daytime use.
Haven't seen any decrease in hyper-pigmentation/freckles, but I just started about 6 weeks ago.
I do notice skin is softer and brighter/clearer.
I have used other vitamin c serums and this product is the best one I have used so far.

I've been using this serum for about six weeks, and I started suddenly noticing a difference in my facial skin tone just last week. The dark spots (which have gotten worse as I've gotten closer to 40) and redness (which has always been part of my fair skin) suddenly looked noticeably lighter to me. My face doesn't have the red look to it that it usually has.

I've been using this once a day. I apply it right after I shower to my face, and neck and let it dry and sink in before I apply my SPF moisturizer. Since I have sensitive skin, it does burn a bit, but the burning subsides pretty quickly.

Overall, a great product for aging skin! Be patient and you'll see results.

UPDATE ON 1-12-13: Like some other reviewers, I had problems getting this serum to dispense when I got to the bottom of the bottle. I still had quite a bit of serum in the bottle, but had to open each time (which lets in air and degrades the serum) to get it to come out. Once I finished it, I ended up switching to Devita Devita-C Accelerator, 1-Ounce since you get twice as much product for a better price. The Devita serum works just as well as the MyChelle one.

Final Update 1/29/15: I hate to do do this because I really did like this product when I first began using it in 2010. It was originally around $25 (thanks for the history Amazon). The last time I bought it in late 2014, it was around $29. That seemed ok. Now it's suddenly nearly $40. Sorry Mychelle, that's over the top. And I won't pay it. It lightens brown spots, very slightly, but no miracles. Not enough to warrant $40. I mentioned before in a previous review, they had changed the recipe (I thought it was less pure) over a year ago, which was also a disappointment. This is the last straw. I'm voting the good old American way...my dollar, so no more for me!

Update: 2/16/11 I'm not sure what's going on with this product, but somehow the formula is now different. It use to be mostly clear with a yellow tint, adn had a slightly skunky smell. I liked it because it seemed very natural and authentic, with lots of vitamin C. Now it looks sort of thicker with an egg yolk-type consistency, and the smell is weird, like they reduced the strength and tried to cover up the smell. Maybe some dummies complained. I'm definitely not as five star happy with it as I used to be, and I don't think it works as well.

Love it! I'm over 50, and I have a good deal of sun damage spots. When I use this stuff, even once a day in the morning, I notice the spots are much lighter after about a week. All of the Mychelle products are good, they free of ingredients you can't understand, they are potent, and anyone who complains about the prices has not been to Macy's lately and tried to buy a real natural product.

I really like this product. But the liquid keeps leaking out of the top. I am not sure why. I leave it upright but liquid will still seep out of it. I did not experience this when I purchased the same product at a retail store.

I use it to smooth out raised scar tissue. It takes about two or three months (applying it every day), but somehow the scarring is reduced, not bumpy any more. My teenage niece uses it to smooth out her skin for what she calls "chicken skin" little tiny bumps on her face (not acne).

The product does have a scent, but I believe it it due to the strenght of the vitamin C. I have purchased a different vitamin C product with less vitamin C and it had less of a scent.

You can read my review of the Mychelle Clear Skin Serum. Mychelle Vitamin C Serum works great, I don't think the rest of the Mychelle oily/acne products work as well in clearing up skin as it does when it's coupled with Vitamin C Serum. After a month of using this serum from a sample pack I bought (Oily/Acne), my skin cleared up for the first time in YEARS!!!!!! When I ran out of the expensive serum, I started to get zits again but not as bad as before. After a few months I finally had money to buy it and my skin immediately started to clear again. I love Mychelle products, if you have oily/acne skin,Vitamin C serum is a MUST!!!!!!!! Mychelle products are great because they are not full of chemicals. I just wish that it was less expensive. Amazon seems to have a good price compared to retail.

I wanted to like this product!! I'd read so many consistently good reviews about this serum that I thought it would be a sure-fire winner. The only negatives I'd read were that the packaging was poorly designed. In the end, I think it probably IS a decent product, but the INCREDIBLY poor design of the packaging outweighs the benefits of the serum. Also, the bottle is just too small, especially for the cost. I probably won't buy this again.
