Serum 10 has been 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.

    My go to vitamin c serum. I love how it works perfectly for my sensitive skin. I can layer it with my other a.m serums with no problem.

    I use this product with skin Brite cream, this combination works wonders for my face. I absolutely love it.

  3. Leanne (verified owner)

    I absolutely LOVE this product! It has been amazing for my sensitive skin. It absorbs so easily and makes product layering so easy. I can’t go a day without it. I highly recommend this serum ~ it is a very affordable product, from a prestigious brand! It’s given my skin a new lease on life! LOVE!!

  4. Hazel (verified owner)

    This is the best vitamin c serum for my sensitive skin. My skin can’t go without it

  5. Jurette (verified owner)

    Consistency is much more runny compared to other Skinceuticals Vit C products e.g., Phloretin CF. This makes application very difficult. I would rather pay extra for one of the other Vit C serums.

  6. DerryAnn (verified owner)

    Obsessed with this vitamin c serum. My skin has never looked better. Perfect for my sensitive skin.

  7. Hazel (verified owner)

    This has become my go to serum. I have very sensitive skin so to find a vitamin c serum that actually works without irritating my skin was a nightmare. It absorbs quickly and it gives skin a youthfuk glow. Another plus is that a little goes a long way i absolutely love it

  8. thabile (verified owner)

    Love it!

  9. Sumaya (verified owner)

    Let me just say.. I was a few months without this… and my skin was completely awful and I developed a bad acne breakout. I will never stop using it again. It really is a miracle serum and yes, a bit expensive, but worth it. It just calms everything down (enlarged pores/skin tone/blemishes/acne) and with time, you feel like you can confidently look in the mirror again. A must have in any skin routine

  10. Eshcha (verified owner)

    I love the consistency of Serum 10, it absorbs quickly and makes product layering so easy. My skin looks brighter and clearer. Great price point for a premium brand.

  11. Rebecca (verified owner)

    Great serum to start with …& economical too

  12. SARAH (verified owner)

    Love this serum, has the consistency of water so it absorbs quickly. Love the glow :)

  13. Hazel (verified owner)

    This is the best anti oxidant serum that I have ever used to date. I am loving the way my skin is responding to it. The pigmentation due to sun exposure and the fine lines on my face are disappearing and my skin is glowing

  14. Thembeka (verified owner)

    One of the best products by SkinCeuticals. My skin hasn’t been so much happier ever since I started using this serum.
    Best for my sensitive skin, ticks every box of my concerns. I highly recommend it.

  15. Taryn (verified owner)

    Excellent on my sensitive, acne prone skin.
    My skin looks much healthier and I have less breakouts.

  16. Verna (verified owner)

    After having tried a lot of samples , this serum has been what i have been looking for. No irritation whatsoever and definitely a great introductory serum. My skin is brighter and my pigmentation is slowly fading.

  17. Anisa (verified owner)

    I suffer with sensitive skin and I knew that this serum would be the perfect introduction to a great Vitamin C serum for me. A few drops everyday pressed into your skin and voila .. your skin will be transformed. I can’t recall ever getting any hormonal acne . My skin is more glowy and bouncy after using this. This is holy grail stuff.

  18. Zanele Masilela (verified owner)

    This was also recommended by my aesthetic Dr. because my skin is super sensitive so its an antioxidant that’s suitable for more sensitive skins. Everyone needs to be on some sort of antioxidants to fight free radicals which in turn causes premature aging. I love it especially since I’m in construction & more exposed to the sun this serum is perfect for pigmentation too.

  19. Bronwyn Mc Arthur (verified owner)

    This serum is a great introductory antioxidant serum, I absolutely love it! It absorbs really quickly and I have noticed my skin is a little plumper and my pigmentation a little lighter.
