        thank you for your great question. I would recommend using the Retinol products separate from Vitamin C Ester 15...you can alternate them but it is best applying them separately.

        No, we do not recommend applying the Vitamin C Ester 15 in the AM, this is a PM treatment and should only be applied at night and a moisturizer should follow last.

        Great question!

        All of Dr. Perricone's skin care products are good for up to 2 1/2 years from date of purchase and if you purchased the products in (2014) they are potent until 2016, if purchased this year (2015) they are potent until 2017.

        Have a nice day!

    • Q:

      I have been using your products for about 45 days and am seeing results but I need your help, please. (A)Throughout the Perricone MD website there are discrepancies as to the sequence of applying products. This is true also with Vitamin C Ester 15. (B) Below is the "application" instructions for Vitamin C Ester 15, from your website today:

      1. ..cleanse skin
      2. Apply pea-size dots of Vitamin C Ester
      3. Using circular motions, spread
      4. ..follow with "Cold Plasma"


      (B) However, your Application Protocol PDF (also from your website) states that Vitamin C Ester 15 is to be applied #4-Treatments and Cold Plasma is to be applied #3-Cold Plasma.

      MY QUESTION: I don't mind spending money to get results, but there are multiple discrepancies. Do you, Perricone, know your products? Or, maybe it does not really matter? Other people have asked similar questions + the issue is never addressed. Maybe there are different views within the Perricone skin specialists as to the best order. Thx.

        A:

        Thank you for contacting Perricone MD.

        Please accept my sincere apology for any confusion; there are so many products in our line and depending on the number of products you are using it can be quite overwhelming as well as confusing.

        There are five steps to following the Perricone regime and they are:

        1a. Cleanser
        1b. Treatment Mask
        2. Toner or Serum
        3. Exfoliant
        4. Treatment
        5. Moisturizer

        The Vitamin C Ester 15 (STEP 2) is serum/treatment and should always be applied before the Cold Plasma, then any other Perricone treatment would follow, and a moisturizer is applied last.

        Have a nice day!

      Can this product be used with Rosacea? Is this product gluten and soy free?

        A:

        Thank you for your continued interest in Dr. Perricone's products.

        The Vitamin C Ester 15 is gluten free; however, it is not one of the treatments we typically recommend for rosacea.

        Here is what we recommend:

        High Potency Face Firming Activator
        Concentrated Restorative Treatment
        Cold Plasma

        I hope this is helpful.

        Have a great day!

    I am 57 and have been using VCE15 for over a year now; it is a fantastic product! Apply a thin layer of VCE15 on cleansed and toned skin before Cold Plasma at night. Avoid eye area and be sure to cover skin to the hair line and below the jaw line. I have noticed that VCE15 has lightened the dark spots on my face as well as brightening, smoothing and tightening and my skin. This is an easy product to use and has a pleasant citrus smell. I have normal/dry skin that can be sensitive. I worried this would be too drying for my skin (especially since I live in a very arid climate) but I found it very gentle. I totally love the results I've seen with my skin due to VCE15. I highly recommend this wonderful product!!

    I'm very sorry to give this product a bad review because I had great expectations. The texture is great and it has a nice scent but everything else is disappointing. It does nothing for my sun spots and when I finished my first tube I found the other 3 to be oxydized (very dark yellow) and a little bit dry. Definitely not worth 120USD. :(

      This had made an amazing difference in fading acne scars and redness, more so than any RX, otc, or organic remedy I've tried. And I've tried Everything! It also controls the excess oil very well! After washing my face, I spray with a mixture I've made of aloe, colloidal gold, and colloidal copper, then put it in while my face is still wet. This allows me to spread it out more evenly before it dries. It doesn't cake or roll if I put on moisturizer or makeup afterwards. I wished I'd have found this years ago!

                I tried using it with the Dermalogica I normally use to hide the smell of wet dog. This couldn't conceal the smell, nor could it prevent my eyes from watering and burning. I could not fall asleep just smelling this terrible scent. I tried to use this product several nights, same reaction. I CANNOT BELIEVE I PAID SO MUCH FOR THIS STINKY CREAM. My rating was overrated -- this cold plasma cream did not deserve even 1 star!

                  This product is definitely a favorite and my go to. Mainly helps to correct and even out skin tone for me. A little goes a long way so do not use a lot. Your skin will drink it immediately so the less the better. Spreads good and absorbs quickly. I noticed immediate results. It does not give long lasting results so as long as you are using it it works amazingly. You just have to use the product to get the good skin. Purchased mine from Planet Beauty in Southern California.
