        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.

      • Perricone MD Skincare Specialist

        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!

        If you apply the products as recommended the Vitamin C Ester 15 will last you 60 days; one tube will last 2 weeks.

      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'm a 61 year old woman who grew up on the beaches of California. My skin reflects the choice of using baby oil to enhance tanning. (Don't tan, people!) I have acquired a lot of skin discoloration not to mention wrinkles that seem to be suddenly deepening.

    I decided for the first time in my life to spend the money to try and "fix" my skin which has been problemetical all my life (acne, sensitive, and now, postmenopausal, dry and under the skin bumps). I read about Dr. Pericone's Vitamin C Ester 15 on a beauty blog and recognized that it might help my problem. Although I gulped at what I felt was a lot of money for a skin product, I decided to go for it.

    Is it worth it? I would pay even more for this product. I was so impressed with the change in my skin texture and feel by the end of the first week I went online and ordered the new Formula 15 to use in the daytime! I also ended up getting the travel sizes of cold plasma/face firming moisturizer/nutritive cleanser the next week as after using up the sample pack of cold plasma that came in my first shipment, I missed the "extra" something that I gained while using that as well.

    Although I thought Dr. Perricone's products were expensive in the beginning, the changes in my skin have been so noticeable to me, my husband, and to people at work, I no longer feel that way at all. And, it does not take much so they are lasting me a long time, and, the very generous samples included really give you a bang for your buck. I signed up for the recurring delivery of the Vitamin C Ester 15 and the Formula 15 which gives me even more free samples. I am now a proud Perricone girl, even if I'm about to turn 62 years old. Thank you Dr. Perricone for giving me the best skin I've had since my 20s. I only wish I'd discovered you sooner, but with your products at least I feel that I will age gracefully.

    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. :(

    Crows feet and laugh lines MELT AWAY! :)

    By KeROB

    from WPB Fl

    Comments about Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester 15:

    I'm 59 and using chemo drugs which have aged my skin seriously. I first used this product 4 yrs ago (55 yrs) and saw immediate lessening of lines around eyes! Was too excited to experiment on just one side of face ;) started using on deep laugh lines and though they are still there, they have softened. I had laser surgery at 40 which did not even erase the laugh lines, though would do this again even with a month of healing. My daughter, 29yrs, used in ULTA store with me and an hour later, said she noticed a slight disappearing of her squint lines and so we drove back to purchase and split the 4 tubes! There is a noticeable difference when I get lazy and don't apply every day after a while....also the longer I use, the more the laugh lines lift out and now I am just using all over my face....oh please Dr. Perricone, never discontinue this product! PS. Vitamin C helps the elasticity in your skin.

    I have noticed a definite difference in the fading of sun spots on my face and on the back of my hands. My right hand especially. I am now using it on my chest under the moisturizer as spots are beginning to appear there. I have used the vitamin C Ester for 2 years now and will continue to use it.

    How can people buy into this stuff?

    By Conscious

    from OHIO

    Comments about Perricone MD Vitamin C Ester 15:

    Okay, so some of perricones products may be great giving a substantial amount of results......but most of the ingredients in a lot of their products are comodogenic, so if you like clogging your pores than by all means by this product. A total waste of money when you can make your own vitamin C serum at home using crystalline C, Organic-Fair Trade Vegetable Glycerine, and distilled water. peg 100 stearate ceteareth-20 and cetearyl alcohol are not good ingredients to apply topically or for anything or rather. Reading labels is very important to me and it should be to all the other people who are so willing to drop $$$ for facial care products.

    I believe that Perricone MD made my skin better than it ever was at "its best". I use this Vitamin C ester 15 more towards the terms of a treatment, only because it not only works as its once-daily namesake..but also to treat on-going skin problems. Its as simple as a lotion, just spread on thinly. Than watch the red, or or pore ridden, areas of concern turn into the skin you imagined when you paid the worthwhile price for this Perricone product.
