How To Use

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
  • 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 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! I was skeptical but curious. Within days several spots on my face that were darker, one for years, were lighter to the point of almost gone. Unbelievable product. Worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product I have been using this for some time and get compliments on my skin frequently....I have aging skin and am a strong believer in this serum as a great preventative treatment. It gives you a glow too. If I could only buy one product...this would be it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from See this product as the bacon to your face. It goes on in the morning. You wash your face then apply this serum. It doesnt smell amazinggg but you get used to the smell. It helps brighten your face. I use it daily. A little on the pricey side but definitely worth it

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money Ive used the serum 15 for yrs. They stopped making it. I tried the 20 about 7 yrs ago thinking it was even better. Not even close. I went back to the derm. and got the 15. They told me that everyone comes back for the 15. So now Im desperate I purchased the 20 again. Nothing! I called consumer service They didn't hesitate to give me a refund even after the 30 days. The c e ferulic isn't any better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from in two weeks It is my first time using this product, I see it already. My face is so bright and smooth. It looks very clean. First couple days: My skin is pore and my black spots showed out more. Next few days: Slowly it calmed down and started to change. About one week later: I seem to have tight skin, and pore shrinks. I decided to use SkinCeuticals on my skin, I then searched up basic products (Like toner, cleanser, cream, and masks.) I'm so excited to see how my skin will turn out. Except my only concern is that the delivery took a little bit of time to arrive. But otherwise, I'm very happy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overrated I have been using this product along with the A.G.E face cream for several months now as recommended by my cosmetic surgeon. With that said, I see absolutely no change in my appearance at all. I use it faithfully every morning as part of my skin care routine, and other than the fact that it FEELS good on my face, I find no difference whatsoever. I am very disappointed considering the amount of money I paid for this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I go back and forth with this product. Yes its expensive, and yes it works. However, I use Obagi professional vitamin c and (for me) its hard to tell the difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent result I have started using Skinceuticals products since last three months and I have been extremely satisfied with all their products that I’ve purchased especially the vitamin C serum! It has made a significant difference for me! My skin looks radiant and it’s worth every penny! Thank you so much

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite products ever. I bought this with the tria laser and I absolutely love it. It makes my skin bright and it glows as if I got a beautiful tan. Hands down the best vitamin c I have tried and I have tried EVERYTHING. Some people dont like the smell but I do....its a bit expensive but it lasts a very long time. I fill up the small bottles and store it in the fridge to keep it fresh. After over two years of using this product I k ow it works because I only add one product to my routine at once and I give it a lot of time because I dont have the money to waste if it doesnt work...the bottles they come in are beautiful and protect the product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smells awful I can’t tell you if it effective or not because the smell is so awful that I can’t continue using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Little Bottle of Serum!!! I have been using this product now for about 6 weeks, and I must say this I am in love!! I have used many different professional skincare products in the past, but this little miracle juice honestly has produced some noticeable improvements. My skin texture looks tighter and brighter. I am since (in the past 6 weeks) now changed over my entire skin care regimen to SkinCeuticals, adding their retinol and gentle cleanser. I will say the gentle cleanser I am still getting adjusted to, as it does not sud up like my former Lancome cleanser. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been using this product for a little over three weeks now and I am already seeing the difference. My skin is brighter and more smooth. While this product is a bit pricey I would definitely recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changed My Skin I have been using CE Ferulic for a couple of weeks and can say it has changed my skin for the better. It was a little had to get past the smell but my skin literally drinks it. I was recommended by my aesthetician at Manhattan Aesthetics who has amazing skin and swears this is her secret. I can see how because I am already seeing improvement in my horizontal forehead lines and a few sun spots around my mouth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can we just accept this this the holy grail skin product and move on with our lives? I have tried numerous other C serums, including the infamous and popular Drunk Elephant C-Firma (which is good, just not AS good). SKINCEUTICALS C E Ferulic® is everything it is hyped up to be. Is it worth it? 100% yes every time. If you are going to splurge on any one item in your routine this should be it. I have a ridiculous love of trying all things new in skincare, but I have been coming back to this for over half my life now. Stay out of the sun. Wear sunblock. Take your Vitamin C. It has been so good to me! [product:skinceuticals-c-e-ferulic-combination-antioxidant-treatment][product:drunk-elephant-c-firma-day-serum]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Believe the hype!! This stuff is skin changing. It really does smell like hot dog water but you will not care about that when you see the way your skin will transform because of this stuff. My skin became youthful looking, even, bright, healthy. Vitamin C is a must and this combination of beneficial ingredients is so perfect

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i life this serum. the texture is thicker and richer than most other brands. vitamin c serums usually have an awful smell... this one is not horrible. i trust this brand to deliver great products for our skin !

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Smell is gross, kinda like hot dog water but lasts 72 hours!! It’s expensive but worth it as an esthetician who works with it. I’d buy it for again for sure! Daily dose of vitamins 100% I recommend it for everyone!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did Nothing... I am so upset to say, this did absolutely nothing for my skin. I had high hopes due to the strong reviews, but it was NOT worth the price. I went through the entire bottle and I never saw a single change. I was even really good about keeping it in a dark place, still nothing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Staple vitamin c. Ferulic acid is great at fighting aging / wrinkles. I use this and do not have 11’s or horizontal forehead wrinkles. However, it does not lighten post acne marks all that well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am a 10+years user! I started using this after plastic surgery 15 yrs ago. It has maintained the texture and youthfulness of my skin in a way that no other product can. People always comment on my skin and I rarely use foundation. I always wear sunscreen moisturizer and sometimes a BB cream. I am 68 yrs old!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The ingredients are excellent in this but I couldn’t get past the smell. Even after it soaked in I could smell it on my face and hands. Even my fiancé mentioned my face smelled weird lol I prefer much more affordable options. For this price I would want to like every aspect of it to buy the full size.
