Customer Reviews



    Sami June 14, 2021

    Vitamin C is a staple in my skincare routine and when I ran out of my last serum I decided to try Follain’s! This is super light, absorbs quickly, and like other reviewers have said, it’s not sticky. I experienced no irritation as someone with sensitive, acne-prone skin. My only critique is that I wish there was more transparency on the percentage of niacinamide in here. I use another product with the ingredient and asked customer service for specifics and was given a non-answer.

    Nice product but sticky

    Angela D. June 02, 2021

    I like this product and have found the results to be on-par with some of my other Vitamin C favorites. I love the addition of niacinamide too. My only complaint is that my skin feels a little bit sticky after application and I often have to wash my hands after using it. This happens regardless of whether my skin is damp or dry.

    Game changer

    Brittany March 26, 2021

    I tend to have oily skin and wasn’t sure about using this serum because I’m always afraid of breakouts. I started off using only at night but quickly added it to my morning routine because it makes my skin so glowy without the greasiness. I’m very impressed with how well this serum works.

    Effective for Sensitive Skin

    Vicki P. March 22, 2021

    As a life long acne sufferer with sensitive skin, I’ve come to be skeptical of a lot of products. This one amazed me. I noticed a decrease in the redness in my complexion within just a few days, and I wasn’t feeling any of the sensitivity I often do with new products. I’m excited to see what this can do in the long run.

    Wonderful vitamin c serum!

    Christina K. March 18, 2021

    Really love this lightweight serum, it doesn’t have a smell and I’ve been using it for the better part of a month once a day and have seen significant improvement in hyperpigmentation from acne scars. Leaves you with a glow, too!

    A Bright New Look

    Marilynn C. March 07, 2021

    What a boost to my day the new brightening serum has been. Before I tried it, I felt I had to apply makeup early in the day to look alive. However, with this serum, I find it leaves me with a fresh, clean look. To speed its absorption, I use the toning mist first. Now some days I find I go makeup free.

    Not Sticky!

    Sarah February 26, 2021

    My issue with C serums in the past is that they left my skin feeling sticky before putting on moisturizer. This formula is NOT sticky at all and feels great on my skin. It’s been a week now after using it every day and I already feel like my skin is brighter. Very happy with this product. Great pricepoint, too.
