and the vivier with HQ does anyone know what % vit c is in it? Not sure which route to go. They both seem like quality lines but is one more better than the other?

Is 20% better than 10% with HQ at treating pigmentation issues or vice versa.

About to place my order and not sure!!!

I think the % of HQ, the higher it is, the stronger. It may not be safe, and you should go lower and slowly build up if you have to. It does thin out your skin.

As for the % of vitamin C, I don't know. I use 20% vitamin C and I wish I could go higher with age, but that is not available.

Since I am treating blotchiness/hyperpigmentation and just want to even out my skin tone not sure if I should use 4% HQ with 10% vit c or 20% vit c alone and which is a better serum the Vivier or the Obagi?

I use the 10% vit c with HQ - obagi. I dont know in terms of hyperpigmentation if its done anything for mine, but i love it for giving me a radiant glow. its brings my dull skin alive like nothing else. everytime I finish it, I go on to other things, but always go back to this.

I have used Obagi Vitamin C a long time ago. I can't remember whether it had HQ. But between the Obagi C and the Vivier 20%, I think Vivier gives me more of a glow than the Obagi.
