How To Use

In the morning after cleansing and toning, apply 4-5 drops to a dry face, neck, and chest before other anti-aging skincare products.

Complete your regimen with a SkinCeuticals sunscreen. When used together, SkinCeuticals antioxidants and broad spectrum sunscreens provide protection against visible aging caused by environmental aggressors.

  • Visible Results

  • before

    The measure of an antioxidant is not only its superior environmental protection, but its visible anti-aging results.

    C E Ferulic clinical studies show a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles, improved skin firmness, and a brightened complexion.

    See Protocol

    Protocol: Average results shown. 16-week clinical study conducted on 50 caucasian male and female subjects ages 40-60 years old (USA, 2013). For controlled results, subjects used SkinCeuticals Gentle Cleanser and Ultimate UV Defense SPF 30 daily, and Emollience moisturizer as needed.

  • Science & Proof

  • Science

    SkinCeuticals research shows that specific combinations of antioxidants, when effectively formulated, provide superior results to each single antioxidant formulation alone.

    Mentioned extensively in peer-reviewed scientific journals, C E Ferulic is a vitamin C serum demonstrated to provide powerful environmental protection due to a synergistic combination of 15% pure vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid), pure vitamin E (alpha-tocopherol) and 0.5% ferulic acid. It is formulated under the Duke Antioxidant patent. Vitamin C is a highly-potent antioxidant that by its structure has difficultly being effectively absorbed by skin. The Duke Antioxidant patent outlines the formulation parameters required for effective delivery of vitamin C to skin: 1) pure l-ascorbic acid (vitamin C); 2) an acidic pH within the 2.0-3.5 pH range and; 3) a concentration between 10%-20%. SkinCeuticals is the only brand to formulate antioxidants according to these parameters.

Key Ingredients

  • 15% L-ascorbic acid
  • 1% alpha tocopherol

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works pretty well, unfavorable texture and smell I'm on my 2nd bottle of this product and overall, I'm happy with the results. I'm 43 and I'm regularly mistaken for being in my early 30s although I don't think this product is solely responsible for that! I think it is helpful in evening the texture and softening the blow from environmental toxins. I have rosacea and my skin seems a bit less reactive to the sun since I've started using this. The downside... the smell isn't great. To me, it smells like a campfire. It does seem to fade after 30 minutes or so and I'd prefer the natural smell of the active ingredients than fake fragrances. Also, it is a bit tacky and sticky when first applied. I usually apply it, moisturizer, and sunscreen and then wait 15 minutes or so before I put on any makeup. That seems to allow it to absorb into my skin and then I don't have any problems with my makeup applying well. If I try to put on makeup immediately after, it kind of sits on top of it and doesn't blend well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glowy Skin! I absolutely love this serum! I tried it as a sample when purchasing my favorite cleanser. My skin immediately had a lit within glow and overall healthy look. I notice a huge difference when I don't use this. Knowing that it's also helping protect my skin from free radicals is something I love. I highly recommend this product and will always have this in my skincare routine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish I started using this years ago! Phenomenal skin almost instantaneously, I kid you not! by I am a skincare junkie and I tend to do massive amounts of research before trying any product. I am also 29 years old and I have oily, acne prone skin but I also smoked from the age of 18 to 28, thankfully I have been able to quit but it was too late since I have smoke lines near my lips and wrinkles on my forehead. Anyway like I mentioned, I have tried a decent amount of skincare products in my day and lately I have been using several “trendy” brand name AHA/BHA products with moderate success but I swear they are the cause of some breakouts I have been getting on my chin, and I have never thought about using a vitamin c based product before. My mother, who is 67 years old but looks only 50 years old, has amazing, smooth and clear skin. I asked her what her secret was and she told me that all she really uses is skinceuticals ce ferulic each morning. I had never heard of skinceuticals before but I finally tried the ce ferulic two days ago and I think I found one of the most miraculous skincare products I’ve ever used. I usually wait to review items until I feel like enough time has passed to give them a proper chance but after the first day of using this my nasty smokers lines look diminished and what I’m really excited about is that it faded old acne scars significantly, in just two days. Also the exsisting pimples I had on my chin are clearing up, my pores look tighter, it gives my skin an instant glow. This is the only new product I’ve added to my regimen recently so i have to attribute the past two days significant progress to ce ferulic. Like the other reviewers mentioned, it does smell kind of like hot dogs when you first put it on but I can get past that because it’s incredibly efficient. So far it hasn’t caused any pore congestion or irritation,and it’s formula is not greasy, gives you a glow. Everyone’s skin is different but Let’s just say I have been using other brands for two months and have yet to review them, I have been using skinceuticals ce ferulic for two days and I cannot stop raving.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tighter skin I have just finished my first bottle. The substance is sticky, my face is tacky. I just cannot see putting anything more on my skin bcuz I'm not certain it would be absorbed. However I have changed my routine so that I put it on in the evening after cleansing. My face remains tacky for hours, but after sleeping, in the morning it has been absorbed by my skin (I don't see anything on my pillowcase) I do have tighter skin after use. The next day I apply my moisturizer with SPF and etc. I alternate the CEFerulic nights with my retinol regime, I couldn't use both at the same time. I will try one more bottle and then decide whether or not to continue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny I have found my dream product. My skin glows now and I do not have to wear foundation or powder during the day.
