{Tested} SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic

—————————————————————————————————

Multiple studies (including this one by The Society for Investigative Dermatology) have determined that Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Ferulic Acid, when combined, create an elixir that provides powerful protection against photo-aging and skin cancer. We conducted our own “study”–we sent C E Ferulic (retail value: $144), a serum by SkinCeuticals that contains this supposed power-blend, to real FOFs. We asked them to test the manufacturer’s claims that this product “neutralizes free radical damage and protects against oxidative stress – the factors that lead to premature aging, loss of elasticity, and hyperpigmentation.” Did the product stack up to the studies? Read on.

Nola, Lake Forest, CA

Was this product easy to use?
Yes. The dropper dispenses the product nicely. You get one drop at a time making it easy to control the amount you use. Also, once applied to the skin, it is easy to lightly spread the product with your fingertips, to cover the area you want.

Did you notice any changes in your skin? If so, what changes did you notice?
Yes. I have normal skin,  pretty nice to begin with but after using this product for 30 days, my skin feels smoother and more supple than before. I noticed a change very early on. It looks clearer, and a bit radiant. I have a more even skin tone and I was pleasantly surprised that the few age spots on my cheeks are lighter and less visible now. Also, [since I used it] I have received a few compliments that I have nice skin.

Do you think this product is a good way to prevent future sun damage?
Yes, especially when followed with a good sunscreen.

Would you continue using this product?
Yes. I live in a sunny climate and I know of a few people who have suffered from skin cancer and had to have surgery. Sun protection is very important to me. Not only will I continue using this product, I plan to look into additional products by this company, such as eye creams, etc.

Would you recommend it to other FOFs?
Absolutely.

Kira Miftari, Aliso Viejo, CA

Was this product easy to use?
Very easy. My personal tip is to use a few drops all over the face and then connect the dots.

Did you notice any changes to your skin? If so, what changes?
It helped even my skin tone–I had some red spots from previous breakouts which are starting to fade out. The overall skin condition is just more balanced. Also, I got the proverbial Vitamin C kind of glow to my skin.

Do you think it would prevent sun damage?
I trust the science behind the combination of C, E and Ferulic Acid. In studies it has proven to prevent sun damage.

Would you continue using this product?
Definitely–I’ll especially use it during the summer under my sun screen, since, according to studies, it increases the strength of your sunscreen protection. This serum is pretty expensive, but it surprisingly lasts quite a long time, so I consider a good investment.

What is your overall feeling about this product?
I think it’s a gold standard of quality, preventative skin care. It’s a perfect addition to any skincare routine.

Deborah Bates, Carmel, CA

Did you notice any changes in your skin?
After applying it as instructed, I found curling iron burn marks on my face slightly disappear overnight, then gradually decrease even more during the two week trial. I was pleasantly surprised, especially since I have tried many products just for this very problem. The serum improved the quality of my skin leaving a glow, which is something a stage four cancer patient like me, does not often experience.

Do you think this product is a good way to prevent future sun damage?
One of the side effects of being a chemotherapy patient is our skin becomes dry and hyper-pigmented. The serum helped my face combat the dryness, even during the chemo recovery process. A miracle!

Would you recommend it to other FOF members?
I would definitely recommend this to all my fellow FabOverFifty members.

Ruby C. Barton, Vancouver

Did you notice any changes in your skin?
I was very surprised by the results it gave me. The first few minutes after I rubbed it in, my skin felt moisturized, tightened and brightened, taking away the sallow look. After using this for just a couple days, it seemed to plump my wrinkles…Yeah! I still have lip lines, but even those are smoother.

Would you recommend it to other FOF members?
Yes.

Would you continue using this product?
Yes–it has done wonders for my skin.

Holly Cunningham, El Dorado, AZ

Was this product easy to use?
Extremely easy to use, and very lightweight.  It spread across my skin well and was absorbed almost immediately. It was easy to incorporate into my morning routine, and didn’t interfere my moisturizer.

Did you notice any changes in your skin?
After using for a couple of weeks I noticed that my skin looked brighter and more youthful. Some of the older sun damage across my cheek and forehead areas was somewhat diminished as well. I really feel like my skin is firmer and tighter…in a good way! The larger pores across my nose and upper cheeks are visibly smaller.

Would you continue using this product?  Why or why not?
Yes–I feel that I am getting great results and it is extremely easy to use.

Would you recommend it to other FOF members?
Yes–I think it addresses several of the issues many of us have with our skin. It totally lived up to the claims.

Mary Grace Gallagher, New York, NY

Was this product easy to use?
Yes. Simple application.

Did you notice any changes in your skin? What changes did you notice?
Yes, my skin felt softer and smoother.

Do you think this product is a good way to prevent future sun damage?
I believe so.

Would you continue using this product?  Why or why not?
I found this serum no different from any other serum that I’ve used religiously. I will continue using  my supply until it runs out, but most likely would not purchase it again due to it’s steep price.

Would you recommend it to other FOF members?
Only those with deep pockets!

Donna Blair, Hollidaysburg, PA

How long have you tested this product?
1 month.

Was this product easy to use?
No, I felt the dropper was extremely awkward. It [dispensed] either too much or too little, and [the product] tended to run if not rubbed it immediately. if you tried to put it on your fingers, they absorbed it first.

Did you notice any changes to your skin?
No.

What changes did you notice?
None

Do you think it would prevent sun damage?
No, [there was] no SPF listed.

Would you continue using this product?
At $110+?  NO WAY,  I’ll stick to my Olay!

Would you recommend this to other FOFs?
No, too expensive, too few results.

Martha Hildreth, Lynchburg, VA

Was this product easy to use?
Yes, although, I had some concerns because the product package stated that it needed to be used concurrently with their moisturizer and sunscreen.  I used the products I normally use, instead.

Did you notice any changes in your skin?
The only changes I noticed were a tighter, dryer feeling when I applied the product.  After the moisturizer was applied, I saw no difference.  There has been no change in my skin, other than the usual smoothness from my moisturizer.

Do you think this product is a good way to prevent future sun damage?
I don’t know.  I understood from the package that the SPF product and moisturizer needed to be used with it.

Would you continue using this product?  Why or why not?
I will continue, in hopes that my skin is so old that it needs additional time to see any improvement. I would also like to use the products the package stated I should use along with it, to see if that makes a difference, as the other products may not combine with their product accurately.

Would you recommend it to other FOF members?
I think others may have better luck with it than I did, and should try it, especially with the additional products from this line. Taking care of our faces, neck, etc, which make our first impression on others, is important.

    If you like Skinceuticals CE Ferulic, you should buy the Generic form which has the identical ingredients and mixtures for 50% off. It is called ActivFerulox CE. check it out. Save your money and don’t pay the full brand price.

    I found this product to smell funny, almost like bacon. It also was rather sticky, and made my skin itchy for a few days. After that, I noticed my skin looked less red, more smooth. I would be cautious about leaving the dropper exposed to light, as it could cause the serum to breakdown. I probably would consider it again, but there are some good antioxidants out there that are not so expensive, and smell much better!
