Kan’s view: 

In the above pictures, the serum appears to be yellowish. But, it was actually colorless, in the beginning. After a few months of unitentionally exposing the serum to the air, it has oxidised and turned a pale yellow.

I started off with only one drop of this serum for my entire face at night, to gauge my skin’s reaction to it, for the first few weeks. After my facial skin didnt exhibit any allergic/undesirable reaction, I increased to 2-3 drops.

The serum has a faint scent, absorbs really fast and is thus quite good for people with oily/combinational skin. For myself, I don’t need to layer a moisturiser over this serum during the summers. Though, it may not be moisturising enough for winters.

The product does seem to brighten the skin, lighten my atrophic scars and provides sun protection as well. However, I can use it only on alternate nights else I tend to get tiny breakouts on my cheeks. Plus, I don’t find the results amazing enough to justify the high cost. SkinCeuticals does not list ALL the ingredients in this serum and I really wish they would. I still have a few months to go before I finish the entire product. Will I repurchase this serum? Probably not.
