I'm not familiar with the ingredients for this but is this the first C you have used? C can cause irritation.

Have you used anything with Hydroquinone in it before? How much of the product are you using?

Malishka, the redness you are experiencing with the C-RX system is completely normal in the beginning, especially if you have never used a C serum before! With the C-RX, the redness will not last anything like the Nu Derm system. How long have you been using the system? For your C-RX clarifying serum, you can drop the amount down to 5 drops for your face.

I have been using it for maybe 3-4 days... not even a week yet.

I am getting flakiness and if i rub my head it like peels off a bit.

I use barely enough serum to cover the face- i would say it is about 5 drops

That sounds good, Malishka. Like I said above, it is normal to be red and have some dryness and flakes when first starting the C-RX. It is all part of the process. On this system, that should not last past a couple of weeks, tops.

I really hate this stuff.

I hate how it smells. I hate the texture of thenight cream.

And i hate what it is doing. I promised i would stick it out but blah.

I keep getting these weird surface pimples or bumps more likely than pimples. When i put this stuff i my neck i get little red dots the next day, but luckily they go away.

My nose is still peeling a bit.

Should i exfoliate.


I am not seeing the photoluminous skin!

How long have you been using the system? You need at least 1 skin cycle before you will see anything, which is 6 weeks.

You definitely can exfoliate, just be gentle with your skin when you do.

Your skin could be purging, which could be the reason for the bumps/pimples. Are you prone to breakouts?

I would start slowly introducing the product. Use a couple times per week before bedtime so that if it does turn red the redness will go down by the morning. If this doesn't work you might be allergic to pure Vitamin C. In that case it would be a good idea to go see your dermatologist.

Good luck with whatever you decide. I have very sensitive skin and incorporating C didn't bother me at all. Sometimes its just best to leave well enough alone.
