I like this serum... it's more like a milk. But I suppose they call it a serum because it is very concentrated. The Vit C concentration is the reason I bought this serum as opposed to the hundreds of others out there. And it's ingredients are natural rather than synthetic. I would give it 5 stars but it's not a miracle product, though it does improve clarity and makes your skin very soft, it won't get rid of your wrinkles or age spots quickly - over time it will help. I have very oil and acne prone skin and it's been a great addition to my skin care regimen. It's an *excellent* moisturizer for me - not too greasy, but emollient, gentle and very noursishing. It is a bit pricey for such a small bottle but overall, I really like it. I'm going to buy my second bottle today.

I have used this product before, and loved the clean citrus scent, the ingredients list. I recently re-ordered 2 bottles, and noticed an awful scent. I then checked the ingredients list and discovered it has Sodium Benzoate - an ingredient which when combined with ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) creates Benzene, a known carcinogen. Even if it forms Benzene in small amounts, do you really want to put that on your face?!

I am very disappointed in Avalon Organics, and Drugstore.com lists the old ingredients list, as well as the old packaging. The "new and improved" formula is not improved at all, and the scent is the first thing you'll notice.

    Comments about Avalon Organics Vitamin C Vitality Facial Serum, 1 fl oz:

    I really like this serum, which I got in January. The only problem is that there seems to be something wrong with the squirter so that a ton of the stuff comes out each time, with the result that there's less than half a bottle left and I've only had it a month and a half! Since I don't want to waste it I've been using it on my neck, my chest, my hands... I'm sure it's nice for them but it's still a little annoying. I like the product itself, however.

    I use this everyday under makeup. It smells great ,like citrus and i've noticed
    a reduction of the fine lines on my forehead.
    for me it can be a little drying so i do apply it with a face cream.

    Service and delivery comments:

    fast delivery , under 5 days in excellent condition.

      A great basic for your skin care regime. Easy to apply and gentle. A must for the over 40 crowd that wants rejuvenation. Wondeful after any microdermabrasion treatment.

          Comments about Avalon Organics Vitamin C Vitality Facial Serum, 1 fl oz:

          Have used this serum for a couple of years and loved it! Last shipment had "new" formula. I hate it. Instead of the smooth-sheer feeling when putting it on, there is now a sticky feel, and it feels weird on my face. They also did something to the smell... it used to be a fantastic "fresh orange" smell... now it is an artificial orange smell. I was so unhappy that I contacted Avalon Organics and requested a refund. They sent me a label to return the product but I have not received the refund yet.

                Comments about Avalon Organics Vitamin C Vitality Facial Serum, 1 fl oz:

                I like trying natural,organic stuff and esp. things with vitamin C as its supposed to be a great antioxidant for your skin. I'm 27 and have fairly sensitive skin. This can be a tad irritating at times, depending on what I've washed with before using this. You also dont have to use alot, the more you use, the more irritating it seemed to be. All in all, it smells pretty good and I'm not a fruit eater. It soaks in pretty quickly and then I put on either daily moisturizer or my night cream. Just be sure you aren't putting something w/ retinol in your night cream with this, that does seem to irritate it. But after a week or two, I noticed my skin tone and texture being more even and glowing at times. I've had people ask what I was using on my face, so apparently others could tell too. I don't wear make up 90% of the time, so the results were more visible. Its a good product, its organic and it works.

                      I like this line, but this serum really messed me up. I have sensitive skin-though not super sensitive-and this product made my skin red and dried me out, and also caused a few breakouts. I've used it for a month, but even after I went down to two useages a week it still gave me nothing but problems. Very disappointed. Would return it if I could.

                        After a week or week and a half of once daily use in the morning, you can see a visible difference in the tone and texture of your skin. It looks really luminous. Doesn't really help with wrinkles that much but, skin looks way more even toned. Easy to apply, but shake first. Spreads very easy so you don't need much. Can be pumped into a dollop of sunscreen for even better results. BTW, always turn cap back so that it's relocked after use and store bottle in the box away from light to retain efficacy of the Vitamin C...
