How to use

How to use

Apply to clean, dry face, neck and décolletage every morning, and follow with a NEOSTRATA moisturizer.

Storage: Store upright in a cool, dark place and open with care as contents may be under pressure. Product color may change over time but remains effective.

Pro Tip: Use an SPF face cream every day – even when it’s cloudy outside – to help fend off dark spots and uneven skin tone. For best results, choose a broad spectrum SPF of 30 or above and reapply sunscreen at least every 2 hours, more frequently for fairer skin types.

This multi-action face serum featuring Niacinamide and NeoGlucosamine helps target and visibly fade dark spots while diminishing uneven skin tone. 15% Vitamin C + PHA Serum and Illuminating Serum are our go-to power duo for brighter, more radiant looking skin.

    I have used various Vitamin C serums, for I spend many hours on the golf course in the sun. The NeoStrata serum is a delightful product and will always be part of my skin care regime. It goes beautifully with the NeoStrata Matrix Support.

  17. Gail (verified owner)

    Recently bought this Vitamnc C serum as a change to the one I’ve used for a while. I trust Neostrata as a brand and liked the reviews on this product.
    I enjoy the texture of this product and 5 drops covers my face and neck .
    I have quite sensitive skin on my cheeks and this hasn’t caused any irritation at all.
    Will definitely continue using it. Good price point for a quality product and brand.

  18. Rachel (verified owner)

    This is my favourite vitamin C serum. The texture of the product is a thin like liquid which can feel a bit sticky / tight as it dries quickly onto the skin but once you apply moisturiser it feels fine/normal. I have sensitive skin but the percentage + PHA doesn’t irritate my skin at all. Probably because I use hydrating serums & moisturisers with it so perhaps consider that if thinking of buying & have sensitive or dry skin. I find this is the best vitamin c serum for my pigmentation. When i’ve tried others i always notice my pigmentation gets worse but once i revert back to this it starts to lighten again. Really recommend to anyone with pigmentation to add this to their routine alongside other pigment targeting products as I have noticed it works well to help lighten pigmentation.
