This daytime antioxidant serum blends the power of pure vitamin C (l-ascorbic acid) with a combination of 10% glycolic and lactic hydroxy acids at a pH that maintains their efficacy on skin. It is formulated under the Duke Antioxidant patent. Vitamin C is a highly-potent antioxidant that is, by its structure, difficult to effectively deliver on skin The Duke Antioxidant patent describes 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from Orange alert I purchased this product on the recommendation of a day spa I went to for a facial. I wasn't able to clearly determine any positive results from using it, which was disappointing given the price point, but I'll acknowledge that i haven't seen discernible results from any of the various products I've used over the years so I'm not discounting that it may have been helpful. However, I feel that before buying this product you should be warned that it darkens it color as it ages. I probably didn't use my quickly enough because by the end of the bottle, it was leaving an orange tint on my face and also stained the neckline of my bathrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Helps with acne and skin tone I have tried a couple of antioxidant serums and I like this one best for my oily, acne prone, aging skin. Doesn't make me break out. Seems to help with preventing breakouts. I actually ran out and had a few weeks of not using and my skin started to break out which is how I'm determining this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Glowing Skin! I definitely reccommend this product for anyone that has oily or acneic skin. I can say that since I started using this product (about 3 months ago) my skin is softer, smoother and has a healthy glow to it. I get compliments all the time on how great my skin is. I also use the Retinol 1.0 and when I apply the C+AHA the next morning there is some major tingling but it always passes quickly. I love this product and will continue to use it until they stop making it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Excellent! I have lived in Texas for more than 30 years... Unfortunately, I have the sun damage to prove it. I also suffered from cystic acne as a teen. This product has done wonders for evening my skin tone and smoothing out the texture of my skin. This product is excellent for daily use. I place 2 drops on top of my hand in the morning and then apply to my face...now hands and face benefit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from beautiful C+AHA is great for my combination skin - I use it at night and spot treat as needed in the mornings if i have any unruly pop-up blemishes. My hubby even asks for 'the special face potion' sometimes! It leaves my skin feeling SO soft looking bright and balanced in the mornings - a great part of my nightly ritual!
