    I’ve used the Phloretin CF serum for several years and have generally liked it, but I decided to try the gel since I was getting about ready to order another bottle of the serum. I MUCH prefer the texture and consistency of the gel for my face! I have oily skin and I find the gel seems to absorb better and leaves a cleaner feel to my skin. I think my makeup lasts a little longer as well without getting shiny. I’m using what I have left of my serum on my neck and chest and the gel for my face; when the serum is gone I’ll be using this for everything. If you’re oily, give this formulation a try!

    I usually buy the CE Ferulic and love it but decided to try this one when my other one ran out. My problem is when I try and put my tinted moisturizer on over it, it clumps off. Does anyone else have this problem? Is it so weird. It’s ok if I don’t try and put anything over it but considering I normally need to, I don’t like it. I will go back to CE Ferulic but considering the price I will have to suffer through this bottle until it is done.

    The new gel texture makes the application of the product really easy and the dark airless container protects the serum from oxidation. Just one or two pumps and you’re good to go! The consistency is pretty firm, so when you put in on your finger, it stays there. So no more problems about drops falling or the container itself falling down and wasting all those $$$$ on the rug, which doesn’t need an antioxidant! It goes on very smoothly – the scent may be a bit strong, but after you spread it, it goes away quickly – and it gets absorbed by the skin really fast, with no residue on the skin (I have normal-dry skin, a bit sensitive during the cold months). I’m still too young to tell you about wrinkles disappearing, but I believe that it will help my skin in the long run. Compared to other people my age (26), my skin is more radiant and I have no fine lines. A good antioxidant and sunscreen are the best insurance for your skin. And this is a great antioxidant!!!
