Buyer beware: This product has been reformulated as of 1/27/2012 (or earlier?). After trying many serums, I was so excited to finally find one that really did seem to tighten my skin, give me a youthful glow, and reduce sun spots (brown patches). I have fair, sensitive skin and don't normally wear perfumes and I enjoyed the light fragrance of this product.

However, I don't think I'll be buying it again. Unfortunately, the company has reformulated the product. It no longer includes magnesium ascorbyl phosphate as the form of Vitamin C. It now contains ascorbic acid, and it's almost near the end of the ingredient list, leading me to believe it isn't very potent in Vitamin C.

Also, the smell is no longer nice. Instead of fresh citrus, To me it smells like over ripe or rotting oranges.

It's too bad that a great product had to change. Why? I don't know. The company's customer relations department couldn't tell me. I'm also a fan and user of the renewal facial cream, which she said also has been reformulated.

This is one of my favourite serum besides Murad. After I used it for a few weeks, my skin looked so bright and smooth. After cleansing, I use Avalon Facial Toner, and then I follow with this Vitamin C Serum.

Those ingredients are terrific and good for your skin. I am using the second bottle right now, and I will definitely keep using this product.

I have to say that I was not really expecting a lot from this product. It is inexpensive and is plain but I tried it. I am so glad I did, this is by far my favorite C serum. I have noticed some big changes in my skin over the last few weeks; it is brighter, clearer and more radiant. I only wish they made it in bigger jars.

I have severe hyper pigmentation, mostly around my eye area. I came across a few videos on Youtube praising the tone evening properties of Vitamin C. Been wanting to try it for months but never was able to get around to it until I did my most recent toiletry shopping at Target. I didnt go there looking for a Vitamin C serum, it just happen to be right there as I was making my way to the checkout. The display didnt have a price so I grabbed it anyway because my hyper pigmentation has gotten a lot worse lately.

Usually I am extremely fugal and have passed up opportunities to buy Vitamin C serums before but when I asked the cashier for the price, it was too late to turn back, so I bought it at a whooping $22.

Took it home and tried it that first night and twice a day since then up until today, 3 weeks later and I do not regret plunking down that insane amount of money for a "miracle" product. The dark circles around my eyes have pretty much blended in with the rest of my skin tone which has taken on a brightened glow. I was amazed how fast this worked for me. I actually can go out in public without concealer, something I havent done in over a year.

I am black American with a dark brown complexion, this reduced dramatically the appearance of my dull greyish hyper pigmentation. The trick is to use it consistently on a cleansed face. I highly recommend this product and once I am done with this bottle, I will be purchasing again here on Amazon for a cheaper price.

I loved the old formula, I would purchase by bulk since I'm currently overseas and received the new formulated version. NOT HAPPY :( The smell, the ingredients, the color and texture all WRONG! If I had known I would have purchase one to test. I will no longer be purchasing the newer version of this, and will look for a new serum now. The highlight of my morning use to be this serum, not anymore, just waiting to use the last of the last bottle before I start looking elsewhere.

I was considering byuing this serum, then i read one of the reviews saying this contains carcinogen for preservative. I went to Avalon website and got the full ingredient list:
Aqua (Water), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice(1), Glycerin, Polyglyceryl-6 Distearate, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil(1), Cetyl Alcohol, Squalane, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter(1), Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Borago Officinalis Seed Oil(1), Linum Usitatissimum (Linseed) Seed Oil(1), Rosa Canina Fruit Oil(1), Arnica Montana Flower Extract(1), Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract(1), Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract(1), Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract(1), Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Extract*, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract(1), Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract(1), Algin, Ascorbic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Xanthan Gum, Alcohol(1), Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Citral, Limonene, Linalool

Then i looked up sodium benzoate and found this article from Spa From Scratch.com:

One known cancer danger exists related to sodium benzoate. If you combine ascorbic acid (vitamin C) with sodium benzoate and potassium benzoate (another preservative), you get benzene. Benzene is a known carcinogen. Most of the benzene exposure comes from the environment including cigarette smoke, car exhaust, industrial waste and service stations. Some benzene exposure can also come from contaminated food and water. Some soft drinks have been removed from the market when they were found to contain benzene.

This serum exactly combines: ascorbic acid (vitamin C) with sodium benzoate and potassium benzoate
