Struggling to find the real deal about Cellex- C Advanced-C serum?

We have a lot of things to say about this brand, including the good and the not-so-good sides.

In case you’re hard-pressed to find the best serum in the market, you can check out this list.

About The Brand

Cellex-C is a skincare brand based in Canada. They market products specifically infused with vitamin C.

The company has been around since 1991.

Main Ingredients

There are 4 active ingredients in the product and they are not to be taken lightly, particularly when it comes to skin benefits.

For its vitamin C component, the serum utilizes hydrolyzed ascorbic acid and L-ascorbic acid. The combination of these two forms of vitamin C makes the Cellex-C potent enough to improve the appearance of your skin.

You can also find resveratrol in the product, which helps neutralize and fight free radicals. It also has ergothioneine, which is great for rejuvenating lackluster skin.

Uses and Effects

The product claims that it can give you results in just 6 to 8 weeks.

With several consumers reporting the positive experiences they have with the product, it’s safe to say that it can actually deliver its claim. The serum, with continuous use, helps reduce fine lines, sagging skin and wrinkles.

Aside from its anti-aging benefits, the serum works well in minimizing pore size and diminishing sunspots, too. It can improve your skin’ overall tone and complexion.


To begin with, the serum has a light-weight formula. It’s oil-free which makes it suitable for almost skin type- with the exception of very sensitive skin.

It’s a professional formulation and if you’re eyeing on trying the product out, it’s a good idea to consult your dermatologist first.

Its concentration is at 7.5%.


Packaging consists of an amber bottle with a dropper. For 30ml of product, this one is on the pricey side.

Despite its packaging, the product seems to have a very short shelf-life. It oxidizes even before you can get halfway through the bottle.

It’s probably related to how the serum is exposed to light and air because of its dropper. As a remedy, we suggest that you open the bottle as little as possible so you won’t be exposing the entire content to unfavorable conditions.

How To Use

The product is recommended to be applied on the skin not more than once. This means that you can either use it in the morning or at night only.

Apply it on a freshly cleansed face by taking out 4 to 5 drops of the product. Rub it on your face using light circular motions until it gets absorbed.

To make sure you get an even result, keep in mind to apply it on your neck as well. Apply your favorite moisturizer after.

The Verdict

What We Like

  • Lightweight formulation
  • Results in just 2 months of use
  • Lots of long-term users

What We Didn’t Like

  • Expensive
  • Oxidizes quickly
