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.

quality product, feels more like sunscreen than serum
Sampled

Smells like oranges, heavy moisture, applies smoothly. You can feel a slight burn...I wouldn't even call it a burn but its a feeling that makes me feel like its working. I wouldn't call this a serum, it feels too thick and greasy to be a serum. I have dry skin so I really like the high moisture and smoothness of this but it does make skin look kinda greasy. Maybe that will settle overnight.

I held onto this sample to use on my wedding day and I'm so glad I did! I felt like my skin was glowing. I don't know if I'll be able to afford the full size bottle anytime soon but if I decide to splurge on a birthday gift for myself I'd choose this!

Good stuff

I love this serum. Brightens, tones, moisturizes, and has a beautiful citrusy scent that isn’t overpowering.

I loved this sample. It definitely brightened my face I really just would wear this with some eye make up and call it good. Plus the citrus smell was refreshing each morning.

Not sure.

This sample is REALLY tiny. This sample is way too small to get a get a good judge. I think my skin felt plumper the next morning and I think it looked a little brighter but as far as lightening dark spots, it's hard to tell just from a sample.

Sample size was too small to evaluate
Sampled

I was familiar with the Sunday Riley brand when I received this tiny sample tube, and I knew it was very expensive. I used the serum a couple times, but I would never buy the full sized bottle unless the sample were big enough to truly test whether the product would work for me. So, although I liked the product the couple of times I used the sample (I especially liked the texture and feel on my skin) I will not be purchasing it.

Favorite vitamin c

As with all the Sunday Riley products I used so far they are very good quality strong products and he will feel them tingle your face if you have very sensitive skin. I like the tingle because then I know it’s actually working. This has very little to no tingle for me and smells nice. It is a great serum to make your skin glow
