This is a serum and serums are used after your toner but before your moisturizer (don't use this instead of your moisturizer). Its supposed to be gentle enough to use morning and night. some people do have sensitive skin so playing with it and finding out what works best for you is what i would recommend. I use mine usually just in the morning (although i don't have especially sensitive skin) and the ole henriksen night gel at bedtime. Sometimes though i do use this in the morning and at night. Hope this helps.
I got a smaller bottle of the serum in the Three LIttle Wonders set (no longer available) and the directions that came with the set recommended using it before moisturizing 2x a day, once in the AM and once in the PM. I usually only use it 1x a day (I still see the effects). I apply it to dry skin after cleansing, wait for the serum to dry (less than a minute) and then apply a vit. c moisturizer. I will say that although I have rather sensitive skin, I can use it 2x a day without irritation. Hope that helps!

The over-reactive response to "Do some research and find out for yourself." was taken out of context and not mean at all. "Luxurious from NY" stated that it's best to use at night, and due to oxidation it was less effective during the day. We all have to find out for ourselves as all of our skin-types are very different...ergo "research and find out for yourself ". I find the serum is too strong to use twice a day on my sensitive, and in fact every-other-night use is my answer.

Poeple ask questions like this to get feedback. Answers like"Do some research and find out youself" are NOT helpfull. They are also just plain MEAN. If you cant answer the question, why tell someone with a legit question to "find out themselvs"? Only the worst kind of person would waste the time of people with the same question with an answer like that. Here is an idea. If you can't answer the question properly, DON'T!!!! Thank you Sephora staff, for an answer that was helpful. You can always count on Sephora!!!! :) Let's see if this get posted!

I have some sun spots along my cheeckbones. My aesthetician recommended that I use products with vitamin C during the day to help protect my skin from getting more sun spots. Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant, so it helps to fight environmental damage that you wouldn't be around at night. However, I have also used it at night when I travel so that I don't have to take 2 serums with me.
I would not recommend using vitamin C during the day, it oxides and looses its effect, it is best used at night. Do some research and find out for yourself.

This item can be used day or night (whichever you prefer). The skin does more repair while we sleep, however the vitamin c in the product provides anti-oxidant protection, so most prefer using this in the daytime.
Apply on clean skin, prior to your moisturizer. Apply to the face, neck, decollete, hands, etc (avoid the eye area). Using an SPF is key to any anti-aging regimen, make sure to use a sunscreen daily.
