My Opinion:
I'm back from my holidays in Thailand, and in order to prepare myself for this holiday, I had to stop using retin a for about 2 weeks before my break (didn't want to get any sun burn...)

During this period I've started to use Vitamin C as a serum, and this product has a really smooth texture, but I'm not sure if it has been absorbed because it left my skin so smooth that I've started to doubt that the product is actually sitting on top of my skin, but after about a week, I've started to noticed brighter skin.
A little tip for selecting your Vitamin C or any other unstable ingredients, always choose your vitamin C products that are packaged in a capsules, pumps or powder, because those packaged in a jar or bottle will expose the product to air and light, which won't help keeping the in ingredients stable.
