The color is light cream but you do not notice it when you use it. Your skin absorbs it immediately.

What I love about this product is that it is a "creamy serum". It is definitely more liquid-y than a lotion… but it is not a clear, watery, acid-like product such as Skinceuticals. I find that it is pleasant to apply, with a nice texture and smell. It does not have that acid-like harshness. But I think it is extremely effective! My skin hasn't felt this smooth in years!

It's more of a lotion, but it feels very lightweight.

I think it might! I would also try Vitamin E pills and pop them and squeeze on your scars and rub in. My scars faded using this method.

It might help. But I think Perricone's other Vitamin C product, the night one in the tube, is stronger. I would imagine it would work better for you.

How does this compare to the tube?
I have tried the tube and loved it. Very fast and firming. Better? Better for a certain skin type or just the way you want it delivered?

I use the tube at night and this during the day and truly my skin has not looked better in a while. It says to use this in the AM, so maybe they should be used in tandom? I think the tube is stronger, but this has a different finish on the skin too - makes it soft and plump.

According to the "protocol" brochure I got from my Sephora store- this is a day time treatment and the tube is nightime. I lOVE them both!

No, it doesn't. It makes your skin feel softer and firmer but does not erase your "spots."

Question
Use on Eyes
Hi,

Has anyone used this product on their eyes? I know that this is formulated for use on this delicate tissue but I've lived to believe that products on face are not to be used on eyes. Any thoughts? Also, I live in southern TX, where humidity is high. Will this product make my skin sticky and oily? Thank you for your input.

I have used it around my eyes and they feel firmer. The skin absorbs the product so fast that it is impossible to feel it sticky!

answer 2
it says to use it around the eyes on the package - I have been doing so and have no bad reaction and lines have been diminished. As far as sticky I dont think so - it absorbs really quickly and is not tacky in feel at all.
