      I use Active C (normail to combination) in the a.m. after showering, on face and neck. It absolutely is a God-send, especially in winter. Simply sooths and moisturizes, without causing break-outs, and makes all fine wrinkles disappear. Plus, your skin has an amazing glow within minutes. I use no face make-up, ever, even though I am 50+ years old. A little tube goes a long, long way, and I often apply at night in the dryer months, using it in rotation with other night-time products that have Retin A.

      I love La Roche Posay products, but the Active C Anti-Wrinkle Dermatological Treatment, Normal to Combination Skin doesnt show noticeable results on my skin. It actually gave me a spot on my forehead, though it is not greasy and dries too fast at the point you waste a lot of product. This can be common in cosmetics with vitamin c, but this one simply doesnt do anything but to hydrate a little bit my skin after washing it before going to bed.

        I use this morning because it doesn't irritate like if I used Retinol twice a day. Retinol at night, this in the morning and that is all you need for great wrinkle free skin. I have no wrinkles at 61.

          This Anti-Wrinkle treatment helps to fade melasma, plump fine lines, and keep skin soft. It is excellent for use beneath sunscreen, because it has a wonderful mattifying effect. Best of all, my skin seems to glow when I use this. It helps fade discoloration and bring out the warm tones in my skin, which makes me look younger and healthier.

              I´ve been using it for several years now and just love it. I tried using cheaper stuff to save but came back to Active C, and it´s worth every penny. During my pregnancies my dermatologist recomended Actie C XL and that was great too.

                My doctor gave me a sample and I loved it. But, it always seemed too expensive in the store. I was happy with the price on drugstore.com and I LOVE the product! A little goes a long way and I love the way my skin feels. Moisturizing, but not too greasy.

                  Concentrated so only a small amount is needed. Goes on smoothly. Results can be seen after about one week's use. Accelerates the effectiveness of fade creams to remove age and dark spots.

                    After thoroughly cleansing skin, apply active C to face morning and/or evening.  Suitable for the most sensitive skin.

                    Vitamin C is an active agent that oxidizes and gets darker when in contact with air.  Before closing the tube, it is necessary to wipe off the side of the tube in order to avoid the darkening of the emulsion.  Please note that vitamin C skin preparations may occasionally stain certain fabrics.  To prevent fabric stains ensure that Active C Eyes is well absorbed before allowing contact with clothing, bed linens or towels.
