I'd say Cellex-C or Skinceuticals (the "standard" ones without added vit E etc). They are the most watery and found them to be more drying than others.

Though I think Carrie (carekate) was a huge fan of cellularskinrx c serum and she's very oily. It is weird stuff cos it feels slippy, but it is oil free and incredibly stable. I have tried loads of C serums, but that is the one I keep coming back to!

I have combination skin, but have been using Ultraceuticals C-10 serum very happily. My pores seem to clog up before you can even finish saying 'comedone', but this serum has been great.

Cellex-C.

Vivier will not clog your pores but it is in a serum formulation. You may not like it because it will feel like you are putting oil on your skin.
I have heard and read that Cellex-C is good for those very hot, sticky, sweaty, humid days. If you skin is like this all year long, you may love Cellex-C

I'm combination rather than oily, but I also liked the texture of Skinceuticals. I'm currently using Proheal and that is very light too and sinks right in with no oily residue.

I love Cellex-C in the summer but prefer something less dry like Vivier in the winter.

I have oily skin and have been using Professional Solutions 25% Vitamin C Serum for about 1 year now and have had no problems with greasiness or clogging pores. I like that it does not feel greasy when applied like some C serums do. It is also relatively inexpensive for a vitamin c serum.

You can purchase it directly from Professional Solutions, Skincare Central, or Diana Yvonne.

Ironically enough, they are located in Austin! Here's the link to their website: http://www.cellularskinrx.com/face.html

For the record, while I did/do love the CSRx Vit-C serum, these days I DIY it.

Yup, like Mabsy stated, Cellex-C and SkinCeuticals. I have used both and like both. Now, I just use the SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic. Even though this formula has Vit. E in it, I haven't had a problem with it making my usual breakouts worse.
