I was lucky enough to score a full bottle of this from a friend who had a reaction to it. Reading reviews it seems like a good vit c serum.

Now I need to figure out how to incorporate it into my skincare routine which is:

In the AM

Cleanse with Olay brush
Olay pro x eye restoration complex
La Roche Posay Redermic C (new product)
Olay Regenerist serum
Olay Pro X deep wrinkle treatment
Olay pro X Age Protection lotion SPF 30


Olay pro x eye restoration complex
La Roche Posay Redermic C (only 5% vit c which is why I wanted to try a stronger c serum)
Olay pro X wrinkle smoothing cream
Sometimes I'll use Neostrata glycolic level 3 smoothing lotion (10%) or Roc Multi Correxion night treatment retinol.

Now, I just recently found it's even better to use vitamin c with retinol and sometimes I'll mix my la roche Posay redermic c with Roc Multi Correxion night treatment. Should I instead replace the Redermic C with the Hydrapure c serum?

Any suggestions/feedback appreciated.

I'm 37 and battling those lines around my eyes and forehead and trying to lighten some acne scarring on my chin and smooth the texture esp on my chin which has uneven texture from years of acne when I was younger. I was using glycolic and retinol alternating every day but found that was actually making my lines and pores more noticeable!! So I backed off. I only use either retinol or glycolic a couple times a week now.

My routine seems to be helping, no breakouts recently but I wish I could diminish those lines and wrinkles on my forehead and around my eyes.

I would think you could alternate the two Cs either one in the AM and the other in the PM or switch to AM use only and alternate days.
