Sunday Riley C.E.O. 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum

This serum takes its name from the ingredients it's formulated with—vitamin C, vitamin E, and a blend of antioxidants—but also truly lives up to its C.E.O. title, working like a boss to brighten, tighten, and plump your complexion. With a potent 15% dose of an oil-soluble version of the brightening savior called tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate (a derivative of vitamin C), it addresses signs of aging and gives you a more even-toned complexion. In this format, it can penetrate deep and fast into your skin, so you get instant radiance. And it doesn't just make your skin look more refined and clearer thanks to saccharide isomerate extract and glycolic acid, it also reduces any redness or irritation with the help of phytosterols, so even sensitive types can use it.

Terrible sample though may have been spoiled

Though not all samples are sealed, this has product leaked out before opening. Tiny bit sampled felt terrible on face and very stiff.

Brightens and evens skin tone

I really liked this serum in the morning after cleansing. It brightens and evens out skin tone for a dewy, fresh faced look. It also has a nice citrus scent

Faded my dark spots!
Sampled

Loved this serum! It cleared up my acne and faded dark spots. It also feels really nice and smooth on the skin, not sticky at all. I likely won't repurchase because of the steep price, but would definitely recommend it to anyone who can afford it!

I Liked it
Sampled

I enjoyed the smell, the bottle was super small, and it was not as oily as other serums. It really did not spread that easy without using at least a dime sized amount.
