First, the new Candessence site is great--it looks as lovely as Candy's products are reported to be. Best of all, now that the site is up, I can finally order some of her products to try for myself!

My question for you experienced vitamin C users:
the Candessence website has two C+E+ferulic products: one with 10% C and one with 20% IS there any reason to get the 10% instead of the 20%? I have been using the Skinceuticals product (20% C) for 3-4 weeks so I think that if I were sensitive to vitamin C, I would already know it.

Thanks for advice....I am eager to place my order!

If you're already using a 20% with no irritation there is absolutely no reason to go for a 10%. That's a level for sensitive skin/beginners. Smile

I second the go for 20%, its potent, but doesnt irritate my skin!! I really am liking it, sinks right in, even on top of my dmae, then I've been adding her HA serum on top of all that, still sinks right in, no balling...so enjoy!!!

i was thinking what you gals are telling me, i just needed validation Very Happy.

i just went to the website to order, put the vitC serum in my cart only to find that some of the other goodies that i want (soy candles, B serum, scar/wound healing cream) aren't yet on the site! BUMMER! Sad i think that Candy must be super-busy because she hasn't responded to a PM that I sent a couple of days ago.

trying to be patient..... Exclamation

did the prices go up? they still seem pretty darn great compared to the pricing of comparable products elsewhere--Skinceuticals, for example.

I think that Candy's still loading everything onto her website. I just emailed her to ask about the other things that I wanted and she sent me a Paypal invoice. I'm sure that you could do the same. She is AWESOME!

Does anyone know about the PH value of Vit.C+E+ferulic 20% from Candessence website? Is it stable and potent? Thanks
