Perricone MD, Vitamin C Ester Brightening AmineFace Lift — $50.00

Originally $99, now $50

Good for: Brightening, smoothing, tightening, fading sun spots, reducing appearance of uneven skin tone

Take it from us, or take it from 75-year-old reviewer Elaine. “This is one of my ‘can't live without’ products,” she says. “I inherited good skin, so wrinkles aren't my big problem—sagging is! This smooths my face and uplifts my jawline.” Elaine pairs the serum with Perricone MD’s Rejuvenating Moisturizer and Eyelid Lift Serum for good measure.

How it works

How does this little bottle of magic work so well? You can thank three main ingredients: vitamin C ester, glycolic acid, and a copper complex. Copper helps visibly improve firmness and elasticity by hydrating and energizing skin (something, dare I assume, we could all use), while glycolic acid steps in as a gentle exfoliator, helping to reverse the damage from all those days you forgot to wear sunscreen. Over time it’ll help reduce discoloration, including acne scars and sun spots, too.

Vitamin C ester is the star of this skincare show though. Chances are you already have a vitamin C serum routine—you are reading Well+Good, after all—but what is vitamin C ester? Think of it like vitamin C’s bigger, stronger, smarter older sister. That’s saying a lot, since vitamin C is pretty brilliant herself. Ester is a fat-soluble form of vitamin C, making it more potent (yay) and less abrasive (also yay, especially for sensitive skin types). It absorbs quickly and easily, giving you the maximum antioxidant benefits. Apply this both morning and night after cleansing and you’ll be rewarded with smoother, brighter, firmer, more even skin that your radiant self deserves.

Another benefit? This serum is free of all the yucky stuff—including sulfates, parabens, phthalates, and talc—as well as cruelty-free and vegan. The barely-there fresh scent, great for anyone who is sensitive to scents (raises hand), and lightweight feel are just bonuses. Win/win/win, if you ask us.

Count 78-year-old review Susie as another superfan of this serum. “I use it every morning and would not miss a day,” she says. “My face looks youthful and I get compliments about how young I look.”

Sold? We’d be remiss not to tell you about another money-saving deal. (We’re always looking out for your wallet here at Well+Good!) If you’re new to shopping QVC, you can take $30 off your first order of at least $60 with code NEWQVC30. Since this serum is on sale for less than that, that means you’ll have to add another item to your cart to take advantage of this deal. We have our eyes on this Le Creuset Dutch Oven, this two-in-one retinol and vitamin c serum, and this splurge of a night cream. Happy shopping.

But wait, there's more!
