  • 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
  • 0.5% ferulic acid

Lauded for its superior antioxidant benefits, this highly potent form of pure vitamin C helps neutralize free radicals and protect against oxidative stress while providing visible anti-aging benefits.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Odd Smell I like how this makes my skin feel but the odd smell is the reason I won’t purchase again. I wish I had gone with the phlorentin because the samples I’ve tried have never bothered me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not best for oily skin I’ve been wanting to try this for years but was hesitant due to the cost. I finally purchased my first bottle, and while I’m sure it’s amazing for most, I think it’s just too heavy for my oily skin. I only use a couple drops as it goes a long way, but my face is very greasy within an hour or two. I wish I would have researched the ingredients first and/or looked for an oil free version. A very costly mistake on my part.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from brightens! I always come back to C E Ferulic. When I do I realize that it is the only C I've used that works the best for me. It is expensive but I've now put it on auto-delivery so I don't loose the progress I make using it. I'm 70 and recommend this to all my 70-young friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use twice a day. My all time favorite Best skin care I’ve ever used and worth every penny!! I now have collection of their products and never run out I use and love them all. Nothing else for my skin. Amazing products

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, quick results! I switch back and forth between this and the phloretin cf gel and love both. Both products give notice results. When using this, I use daily and feel I see results relatively quickly, leaving me with a smoother complexion. Reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is because I find the serum is a bit sticky after first applying and takes a little long to dry. But overall, satisfied with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brightening I faithfully use this every morning . I gave tried less expensive brands and even obagi. This by far is the best vitamin c serum. Skin is bright, clear and glowing. Bottle lasts a while and a little goes a long way. Definitely worth it even though it is pricey .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I’ve been using this for about 3 weeks and I love it, I definitely recommend and trust this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product My Esthetician recommended this used in conjunction with sunscreen every day and it works great. I had to go a few months without and now that I am back on it I notice brighter, firmer skin. Worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little Bottle Big Results Good things come to those who wait. After speaking with my dermatologist about my damaged skin from years of harsh sun exposure, she suggested I try this product along with a higher SPF sun cream. After about 16 weeks of daily use, I had my picture taken with friends, and then THEN I saw the difference. My dark spots were gone. The lines around my eyes were gone. My overall skin tone was flushed and healthy. I started my new regime with this product over 3 years ago and have used it daily since. I hope it never gets discontinued because I am a believer! My skin has never looked or felt better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In my lineup every day! I use it every day, love it! I see a difference and I think most people would not guess my age correctly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I could bathe in this stuff! I was given a sample of this after an IPL treatment. I instantly noticed an improvement in redness & skintone. I put off buying a bottle due to the costs, but I Eventually gave in. It does smell, a bit like rubber, but is worth it!!!
Date published: 2020-05-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must use Properly I've been using this for years and while I've always liked it, I recently read that this product should be applied right after cleansing or toner and BEFORE any other type of skin care products. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Skin is plumper, younger looking and is helping with dark spots. I also use ZO (formerly Obagi) for hyperpigmentation which is the gold standard but used in combination with this product, it is fantastic!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product, tight feel First off, I will start by saying that I am an aspiring esthetician and have worked at numerous salons, with much knowledge on skincare. I have been using this product for about 2 months now and have definitely noticed a tighter, smoother feel to my skin. I am only 20 and have never had acne prone skin, but i do have smile lines and dark spots that have faded since using this serum. A lot of people complain about the smell and I dont understand why- who cares if it smells metallic, if it works for your skin then perhaps the ingredients in it that are working for you is what is giving off the smell! I think this product would work wonders for someone in their mid 30s who is starting to show visible signs of aging. For me, personally, I use it only because I work at a salon and recieve free samples of it- the price is also a bit out of my budget. Its never too soon to start your anti aging routine! :')

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the cost I have purchased this for a few years now love the results. I have a few wrinkles but without this product would have a lot more. Start my daily routine with this product and would recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fizz I opened my bottle for the second use and it had so much of fizz that I lost almost 1/3 of it :( . How can I avoid that in the future?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great antioxidant serum! Excellent product for mature skin. Keeps my skin smooth and has helped eliminate brown spots on face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gives a Glow My esthetician recommended this and gave me a sample. It gives your face a glow, so I decided to purchase. It’s too soon for any dramatic results, but it does brighten up the face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff! I loooove the c e feurlic serum!!!! I am a real customer not someone paid to leave this review or someone who received it free to leave a review (even though a free one would be amazing (hint, hint)). To be honest, use this serum sparingly because I can't afford to use it all willy nilly plus, it doesn't smell that great so I add a few drops into my moisturizer to help hide the smell while making it last. I'm not going to give you all the ins and outs of my skin but it does make a pretty big difference between when I use it and when I don't. Let's be realistic, it's not going to make you look 20 years younger over night but if you want to see subtle improvements over time, I highly recommend. Also, I highly, highly recommend you don't leave this product in your makeup bag or in your purse or set it out on your counter. I have had mine in my dark makeup drawer right side up for over a year (I've been trying other products as well) and never had any issues with it. The only downside is the price and even though I do not love that, I really love this serum! P.s. skinceuticals, if you want to send me any free products, I happily accept!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for men’s skin I have seen a lot of sun I’ve been using this product for a few years now at the recommendation of my dermatologist along with several other prescription items useless in the morning after cleansing and shaving and toning spread six drops over my face every day really helps diminish signs of age spots caused by photo damage from over exposure to the sun helps smooth out the texture and tone of my skin really love this product

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great results - broken dropper! Brighter skin within short period of time. Think it's helped with discoloration, too. Overall very good improvements. BUT! During first week the glass dropper broke. I have had to pour it out into my hand and i can't control the amount. How do i get a replacement dropper??
Date published: 2020-04-15
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, the packaging & price could improve I have been using this product for about 5 years and I love it. It is a necessary part of my daily routine. I would like a change in the bottling because it is too easy to accidentally tip the bottle over . A rubber gasket in the neck as a drip stopper that you could still insert the dropper through would be appreciated. Price could be reduced or a subscription or good buyer discount would be appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely changed my skin! I was told I needed the Flouretin CF since I have oily skin, and for years I tried to love it...but it left my skin red and irritated. My sister is an esthetician and like an idiot I never listened to her and finally she yells at me, JUST GET THE C E FERULIC! It will change your life! So I did. And it has. I use it at night most of the time before my B5 Gel and then Glycolic Overnight (swapping with Retexturizing Activator every other night) and then Overnight Oily. I tell you what, adding that CE Feruilc went from oh, nice skin, to strangers stopping me to ask what foundation I had on. I don't wear anything during the day except B5 and then the SkinCeuticals Sunblock (physical fusion and the matte one- matte is my fav). They think I'm lying. I'm 43 and I have to pull out my driver's license to convince people my teenagers are my children. BUY THIS STUFF! Oily, not oily, aging, whatever you have, it will be improved tone, no age spots (I had a few that are gone now) and combined with my other SkinCeutical products, a glowing radiance. I love SkinCeuticals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hail Mary of Vitamin C Serums! Yes, yes, and yes! If you're wondering whether or not you should invest in this tiny bottle, you absolutely should. First of all, a little goes a long way, so don't worry about waisting the product every time you go to reach for it. This product leaves your skin feeling soft, glowy, and most importantly, protected. After just six months of using this serum, I noticed a huge difference in the texture of my skin. Defiantly recommend this product for all skin types.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! This serum is the best thing that happened to my skin. My only complaint was that it make make face look oily. But new formula is totally different! My face looks great after application! Thank you for this magic in a bottle

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best C product I bought this product the first time about 2 years ago after receiving a sample. I had read about it and saw it on every top 5 beauty list but it is pricey. After the first bottle I was hooked. I am 60 plus and I am continually told how beautiful my skin is, this product is amazing and it last quite a while as it only takes 4-6 drops to cover face, neck and décolletage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product I have purchased this product 2X’s. I have dry mature skin. This does not irritate or dry my skin. I have some hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. This product has helped correct my skin issues. I would continue using this product, but unfortunately the price point prohibits me from purchasing it on a continuous basis.
Date published: 2020-04-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I bought this product at a doctors office. I have been using it for a couple weeks but think the coloring is off. I thought the CE was suppose to be a dark liquid but mine is clear. Just concerned the product might be expired. The product does still have the distinctive smell. Just not sure if it supposed to oxidize or not. Overall I do like this product and it is helping my skin.
Date published: 2020-03-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noticeable difference! I started using this serum about 2 weeks ago and I have already noticed a huge difference! My blackheads are starting to really go away and any time I get any type of pimple pop up this serum truly makes it go away leaving no scars or marks! smells a little funky but you get used to it and the feeling of it! I recommend!!
