Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vitamin C Renewal I bought this on a whim after reading articles about how well Vitamin C serums worked on the skin. I love this and have noticed a huge difference in my skin since I have used it for 3 weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality at an affordable price At the age of 69, I wanted something to nourish my skin. Avalon Organics Vitamin C Renewal Vitality Facial Serum has been beneficial for my face especially after sun exposure. It is fragrance-free which is important for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skin care must have I've been using this serum for a couple of years or more and it is excellent. I use Retin-A in the evening and this in the morning. My skin looks clear and healthy, and I constantly get compliments on my beautiful skin and how much younger than my age I look. You can't beat the price at Swanson's either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice product This serum has a very pleasant orange scent and absorbs well. It feels like a light moisturizer but also leaves the skin feeling and looking tighter and fresh. Very nice. I'm not sure how effective it will be with long term use because I just started using it, but I like it so far!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vitamin C Renewal I like the texture and the fragrance (refreshing citrus) of this serum. I use the serum in the morning before my daily moisturizer (suncreen). A little goes a long way.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh... I am a fan of the Avalon Organics line, but this product is not my fave. I like the viscosity of it, but it goes on rather sticky, and if you don't rub it in well enough, it leaves a clumpy residue on your skin. The price here vs retail is good, but for $14/oz, I will try something else next time...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for some but not for me My skin is too sensitive for this.
Date published: 2013-03-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Stuff As with many women, I have tried many products for my skin, and I am very happy with the results I have had from using the Vitamin C Renewal Vitality Serum. Compared to high priced Brand Name products, it exceeds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this serum This serum leaves your skin bright. I've been using this serum for over 2 years now and people compliment my skin. It smells great too. Natural fragrance. It leaves your skin soft. You can skip your moisturizer with this one. Great stuff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ? Formula change I have used this product for about 3 years now and the last time I ordered (6 months ago) I believe they changed the formula. I was much happier prior....Not sure if I will order again? :-(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific for keeping youthful look I'm so impressed with this product. It keeps my youthful glow & pore size is at a minimum. Nice soft skin too. Try it, it's amazing. Plus it's an awesome buy for those attributes

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not sure not really sure how i feel after trying this new improved formula. i rate it now avg becuase the vit c seems less potent and as far as difference in skin havent noticed as much as i did with this product in the past.
Date published: 2012-04-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from serious Vit C Smooth serum with vitamin C, as my skin specialist recommended. Newer product in the Avalon C line and feel it lives up to the other superior products - soothing.
Date published: 2012-03-31
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light Serum I really like this serum, its more of a lotion type serum. It's not sticky at all and its great for summer time it feels like my skin is hydrated but can still breathe. My skin looks brighter since using it too
Date published: 2012-03-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for sensative skin I prefer natural products over chemicals for my sensitive skin. This feels good on my face. I trust Avalon products. This is an excellent value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well This product feels great on your skin. A little goes a long way and I feel it improves the texture and appearance of my skin.
Date published: 2011-08-18
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use this with Avalon Organics CoQ10 Night Cream. It has a light texture and absorbs well. I usually pump twice into my palm, rub it with my hands and then press it evenly with my warm palms. No irritation at all and my skin is soft and smooth after applying this serum.
Date published: 2011-07-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Irritated my skin This product irritated my skin and I broke out with red bumps. I cannot recommend this.
Date published: 2011-07-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A skeptic admits this is wonderful I've been struggling to find the right product for my dry menopausal skin. I scoffed at serums. I had used this lines facial cleanser, moisturizer, scrub and toner regularly. I see a quick improvement in my skin after using this product. Am so pleased. The 4 on convenience was for the glass bottle. Its hit the floor several times and hasn't broken, I'm lucky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from smooth finish I am 52 years old and have used many facial serums. This has got to be one of the best serums for the money! I love the scent, I love the smooth finish that it leaves on my face and neck. A great organic product that I would highly recommend to women of any age.
