Anyone ever use their cell block-c products? The claim for the intensive brightening elixir: "Unique BeautiControl technology targets surface cells damaged by hormonal, environmental and age-related factors to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation and age spots, while our exclusive Tri-C Complex? delivers three potent forms of vitamin C deep into the epidermis for healthy-looking, glowing skin!" It is $26 so not too pricey. They also have some other products in that line.

I scanned the net and could not find any info. about what percentage of C is used in this product. So many similar products such as these giving false hope and riding the wave of proven C serum formulations such as Skinceuticals CE Ferulic, Cellex-C, as well as others. Should be at LEAST 10% strength vitamin C. Preferably Ascorbic Acid.
$26 tells you a bunch also considering how much the real stuff costs.
DIY C serum is the way to go.

Bella so far i have looked and tried many products a lot dont work or dont have enough active ingredients to make your own, my advice would be if you can afford it by la prairie i got a present of there cellular cream a little while ago and its amazing or make your own, however if you do want to buy things always check ingrendients also sights like Mango Madness Skin Care - best moisturizers and anti-aging products for wrinkles and dry skin do great creams that i have not tried yet but things like there peptide cream is full of active ingrendients!

I HIGHLY suggest you make the one that Fawnie posted about.
With the ferulic acid. Yes, I got a little help if you will from another forum. I'd make your C serum from proven formulas such as Fawnies. Your cream very likely has ingredients that could have a negative effect on the actives penetrating your skin.

Il ask her about the ferulic was gonna see her vit c goes and green cream first and then once iv got to used to these il ask fawnie about ferulic but im just wondering really for future reference how easy this is to do really! The better creams are far more expensive here in the Uk than in the US unfortunatly!

What doyou mean though by my cream very likely has ingrendients that could have a negative effect do you mean that if i already have a cream base i could not add to this?

Thanks for letting us know peri il def look into this bit more in future!

Basically what I mean is you want to use just the actives and penetrating agents such as Butylene Glycol as well as others to insure the C is penetrating the epidermis of your skin and not being blocked by unwanted ingredients found in most creams. Think of it as vitamin C serum and not vitamin C cream.
