Apply ELAN to face at nighttime only, avoiding contact with eyes. If used as part of a NIOD regimen, apply after CAIS and MMHC but before Hydration Vaccine (HV). If used with other skincare, apply after serums but before heavier formulations. ELAN contains a novel pull-push ether for optimal penetration and, while it's oil-free, may feel slightly oily for about 1 minute after application. This feeling will disappear quickly as there is no oil in the formulation.

Great Vitamin C

This is a great product, it is lightweight and doesn't smell the way a lot of Vitamin C serums tend to smell. Lasted a long time and packed a punch. Not usually a fan of a dropper but it works well in this product and I like the brown bottle, it really helps to prevent the serum oxidising.

Strong vitamin c

This is a good vitamin c serum for people who are seasoned users. It's quite strong and sometimes can leave a little tingle on the face but it's not uncomfortable at all. This is a slightly thick oil but it spreads really well and you only need a little. It gives a instant glow (all oils do!) but now I've been using it for around 2 months I've seen a general improvement in the clarity and texture of my skin. As you don't use a lot this will definitely last ages so it's fairly economical too.

I actually hate this

Ugh, this is SO sticky! I didn't come across this kind of weird texture before, it is oily, but also sticky and never fully absorbs into the skin, even when I try to mix it with a product that usually, with other similar products, helps with absorption. As this is recommended for night use, I have trouble falling asleep as this makes my skin cling to my pillowcase. I tried it for daytime, but I was too shiny. Maybe it can pass for at home use, for a pampering session. I wouldn't repurchase as I had similar results with other vitamin c serums that have much more agreeable texture.

Ever since trying the cheaper version from The Ordinary, I have been intrigued to give this one a try and I have been repurchasing and loving it ever since! My first bottle had an awful smell just as mentioned by some of the others, however I did not encounter that smell in any of the other bottles - not sure what was wrong with the first one. In short - definitely recommend to try it out!

I am impressed with the attention to the science on this product. I love that the intensity level is high, but with no irritation. One question- why is it recommended for evening only? Why not day time under sunscreen for xtra antioxidant protection?

Best Use: Anti-Aging
