I'm interested in this too!! The recent price update really bummed me out.

I've found a decent vitamin c serum that is comparable to C15 (and cheaper too!) It's NuFountain's C20+Ferulic. It doesn't cointain the antioxidants that Paula's does, but it does have a higher percentage of vitamin c!

I would love to find a substitute for her BHA 2% liquid too though!

u/scumteam14 · 11 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Aww thank you so much! It means a lot to me that my rants aren't solely in the realm of old man yells at sky (yet)!

Unfortunately I'm not in the EU and I'm pretty ignorant of what is easily accessible (without insane shipping costs), but I do believe lookfantastic carries a bunch of brands and it might have free shipping!

My price-point for everything is usually around or less than $20 - I won't spend much more than that on a product. So most of my recs do hover around that price, although it should be noted that some(most?) will last longer than TO's products either due to more product being purchased, or just the formula lends itself to easier spreadability allowing for thinner layers and less product used per application.

Advanced Retinoid 2% - I actually think this is a great product and a good introduction to retinoids. You'll find a lot of other gentle retinoids on the market - a lot of 'retinol creams' actually contain gentler retinoid derivatives similar to the ones used in TOs formula, so it's not ~groundbreaking~, but it is a good product at a good price and I believe it's kind of a dupe for Sunday Riley Luna and I support that. That being said, if you go to the store and pick up any 'anti-aging' serum or cream, it's bound to have some gentle retinoids in there, usually for ~$10

Retinol 1% - This is another product I really like. $5 for retinol is fantastic, and it dilutes easily into a moisturizer. I dilute it into a 0.2% concentration, and it has lasted a very very long time. Mixes well, great product. It's rather difficult finding a low-cost retinol product since you can charge more for the gold-standard ingredient, but they do exist. There are also some Amazon retinol products that are a very good deal price/oz, and at least from the review I linked, seem to be effective as heck. As of right now, I'm unsure of whether I'll be testing an Amazon retinol product or sticking with my retinol from TO after it runs out. Differin is also OTC here now, costs ~$10. So I'm sure it will be easier to find cheap retinol products soon.

Niacinamide - Another product I really like! That said, a lot of moisturizers contain niacinamide (like a bunch of CeraVe ones), any 'lightening' serum will have niacinamide, I swear that every AB product has niacinamide in there somewhere, Skinlex has a $10 serum, and there are good diy recipes as well

Vitamin C 23% - This product is awful. I don't mind the gritty texture, I don't mind the feeling of a thousand tiny bees stinging my face for 10 minutes after application, I don't mind having to apply it to damp skin, and I don't mind having to mist my face with water after application. I can work with a product like that. It's this thick, disgusting, lard layer that it leaves on your face. It pills under everything, and it pills aggressively. Since by it's very nature you need to apply it as a first-step in your routine (both due to the low pH required and because you have to apply it to a soaking wet face), you'd think it would be a formula that layers decently under other products. Doesn't have to be perfect, I don't mind a bit of pilling. But this layer is T H I C C, and it sloughs off from the mere sight of a hydrating serum or regular bland moisturizer. So what do you do? Well, you wipe it off, of course! BUT THIS ISH DOESN'T WIPE OFF. IT IS NOW A PART OF YOUR SKIN. Scrub all you want, you'll just be left with slimey, red, irritated skin. Your only hope is another oil cleanse, and why the heck am I going in circles in my routine when I just want to get to freakin bed???

I don't know if I can get behind anhydrous vitamin C serums - of course there's the risk of fast oxidation in water-based L-AA serums, but if you buy a well-formulated (with preservatives!) product from a well-known and well-reviewed company, and store the serum properly, it really shouldn't be that much of an issue. If they can create an anhydrous serum that doesn't feel like you're slathering your face in silicone lard, then yes I can totally get behind it. But there ain't nothing wrong with a bunch of water-based L-AA serums on the market - for ~$20, you don't have to keep your face soaking wet for application, no misting required, no little grits of L-AA that explode into a thousand hornets, no disgusting layer that melds itself to your skin like Viserys's gold crown and then sheds like a moldy snake.

Anyway, Timeless, NuFountain, and Skin Actives are all good vit c serums ~$20. Simple Skincare Science just did a good overview of some vit c serums here

Vit C derivatives (MAP, SAP, ascorbyl glucoside, etc.) - Honestly, I'm not sure of alternatives because these have never really interested me, but if you go to the store and look for a vitamin C serum, chances are it's got one of these derivatives in it. Silk Naturals also has affordable MAP serums (~$15).

Lactic Acid - Again, not an ingredient I've researched extensively, but Silk Naturals has an 8% lactic for $9, and Pond's Rejuveness Anti-Wrinkle Cream has 8% lactic for $12

Azelaic Acid - Skinoren/finacea for $12 are the ones I know of (but they may be prescription? unsure), but I think this is probably a good intro to pricier azelaic acid products!

Glycolic Acid - Nip & Fab Pads, 5% glycolic acid for $10. Alpha Skincare, huge bottles of varying concentrations for ~$15. Pixi by Petra Glow Tonic, 5% glycolic for ~$15. Avon Retexturizing Peel, 10% glycolic for ~$10.

Salicylic Acid - This is everywhere. Price/oz, TO is more expensive than gosh darn Paula's Choice (which I consider to be an expensive brand.) Silk Naturals has an affordable salicylic acid toner, but imo just pick up some Stridex or equivalent product.

AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution - This is a good price for a peel, I think - I don't know much about peels!

Hyaluronic Acid - Hada Labo Gokujyun Lotion (~$12 for a lot of product), Mizon Hyaluronic Acid 100 (~$13), Elizavecca Hyaluronic Acid Serum (~$15 for an insane amount of product)

Various oils - these seem to be good deals, Garden of Wisdom is an alternative, NOW oils are an alternative. I used to buy my jojoba oil in bulk from H&B Oils Center on Amazon and never had an issue :)

Various primers - various drugstore primers ofc

Matrixyl - Timeless carries one for $22, I'm sure there are many others because matrixyl has been a good buzzword for a while

Alpha Arbutin & Argireline - these aren't products I've looked into tbh

Caffeine solution - I think you'd get the same effect from buying a cheap rollerball applicator, filling it with whatever serum you want, and storing it in the fridge

So there are a bunch of good products there - lactic, retinol, azelaic, probably the alpha arbutin etc. But there are definitely other brands to fill the ingredients needs out there. The brands I recommended were just the ones I have saved or found easily on the sidebar, so there's definitely way more out there!

I think there are a lot of ingredients that you can find if you go to the drugstore and look around a bit - I don't think everything needs to be vouched for by a bunch of people to make it worthwhile. Of course I love to have reviews backing my purchases, but if something is inaccessible or expensive, I can usually find something that fills that need at the drugstore. The only problem is how horribly products are named! If I'm looking for niacinamide, it helps to have niacinamide in the name, or at the very least in the product description, but you probably won't find out about it until you're knee deep in the ingredients list.

I'm seriously hoping for a stronger shift away from issue focused skincare descriptions to ingredients focused skincare descriptions, or at the very least clearer inclusion of the star ingredients (and not just like, ~organic cold pressed pea juice for lightening~ when really niacinamide is at the top of the list).

u/sedona03 · 8 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I have been using beauty oils a lot more. I use Boscia Tsubaki beauty oil when I mix my foundations, and it is so moisturizing. Then I use NuFountain Ferulic C20+ after I cleanse my face. My skin feels so much softer and I feel like the elasticity is a bit stronger.

u/SpeechyKeen · 6 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I don't know anything about the products you mentioned, but these are possibilities for you:

  • NuFountain is a great product and price! You can also buy 3 bottles at a time for the price of 2.

  • Timeless is also another brand I've heard good things about!
u/GiveMeABreak25 · 5 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

NuFountain C20+Ferulic 20% Vitamin C Serum I have been using this about 5 months now and it is easily my HG of my routine. It has everything, is made fresh (hand written date mixed comes on the label), priced right and you get it super quick once ordered.

u/Puppymom2 · 5 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I use this one:

NuFountain® C20®+Ferulic Vitamin C Serum. Made Fresh When Ordered with Free Shipping https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0039LZW78/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_XnGVzbDRKCNJG

It is a dupe for skincuticles, but without vitamin E. it is also formulated with the proper pH which is very important for vitamin c serums to work. I love mine, I've been using it for about a month and I've noticed an improvement. I keep it in the fridge and it's just as clear as the day I bought it. They are also made fresh to order

u/[deleted] · 5 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Sure it was this serum that’s supposed to be a dupe for the $100+ skinceuticles serum

I liked it, but I’m trying to finish up my SR ceo moisturizer right now and then when the Sephora VIB sale happens I want to buy the TO Ascorbyl tet solution. Don’t really like the SR cream and if I don’t like TO solution either I’ll go back to the amazon serum

u/Aleysia · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I haven't seen anyone mention NuFountain's Vit C + Ferulic product, so I thought I'd just throw it out there. It doesn't seem too expensive.

I've been meaning to order it for some time but haven't gotten around to it.

u/slapnchop · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Right now I’m on Curology’s 0.04% tret, 1% clindamycin, and 9% azelaic acid (I’ve increased the tret % over many months). First, I recommend you introduce Curology slowly - like every other (or third) day for two weeks, then every day. Also, the 2% BHA may be too harsh/drying in the beginning - I’d recommend getting used to Curology first (i’m just now introducing it every third day bc I get so flaky). I love the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser & PM lotion (the AM lotion stings my eyes but YMMV - so I use the PM in the AM if that makes sense), and I love EltaMD UV Clear SPF 46 for sunscreen. I currently use NuFountain C20 + Ferulic serum bc of price and am happy with it, but if price isn’t an issue, the gold standard seems to be SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic. Good luck! Be patient and consistent and you’ll see really good results!

u/xyxyxy_ · 3 pointsr/AskWomen

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0039LZW78 this! I find that a lot of vit c serums have vitamin e oil in them, which makes me break out. This one my skin has no problems with :)

u/thepattyparty · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Helloooo everyone! So I've been using the Mad Hippie vitamin C serum for a couple months and I like it but after reading more about vitamin C I think I'd like to try a different kind with L-AA to see if I get better results.

So I'm considering:

u/FutileFertility · 3 pointsr/tretinoin

I've been using it since the beginning of october. I started w/ once every three days. After three weeks, I added back in my vit C, then had to switch up my cleanser, so I only just went up to once every two days.

Skin-type: Sensitive. What sensitive means for me: sometimes my face will just burn and sting even with the same routine i've had for months. I can get really dry on my cheeks no matter how much I moisturize.


  1. Wash: Simple Water Boost Micellar Facial Gel Wash I prefer this to Cerave Hydrating cleanser because I felt like Cerave just wasn't washing my face. I could wash my face three times with Cerave and still have makeup come off on my towel. Simple doesn't do that. It also doesn't dry out my cheeks like other cleansers have.

  2. Clindamycin topical on affected areas (prescription)

  3. Vitamin C I like this one because it's made fresh when you buy it (they even write the date on the label). I keep it in my fridge. It was made on Aug 31 and it has yet to oxidize.

  4. Cerave Moisturizer

  5. Silky and Light Sun Milk sunscreen So far the only Asian sunscreen that hasn't broken me out. It's a bit shiny, has a fragrance, but is really easy to apply and makes my skin feel soft. No white cast.

    Morning Routine usually takes about ten/fifteen minutes


  6. Wash

  7. Tretinoin on a tret day (buffer w/ moisturizer on cheeks only right after wash, then wait 15 min prior to applying)

  8. Moisturize

  9. Petroleum jelly (thin layer) on tret day

    Night routine takes less than five minutes on a regular day, +15 min on a tret day
u/xorobas · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I don't think the beginner's skincare routine really has any age bracket, so it's still worth checking out.

If she's in her 70s, I don't know that a tretinoin will do too much on the level of deep wrinkles, but she can certainly ask her dermatologist about it!

Otherwise the best addition IMO would be a vitamin C and/or ferulic acid serum, and there are plenty available on the market:

u/bluesky557 · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

NuFountain C20+Ferulic. It's inexpensive and also effective. And orderable on Amazon!

u/Radiant_beta · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Thanks for replying🙂 I read about Timeless but haven’t tried it yet. Was debating between that or NuFountain C20 and using it layered with retina a. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0039LZW78/ref=cm_cr_arp_mb_bdcrb_top?ie=UTF8

u/allonsyyy · 2 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

You got a bunch of great suggestions already, but if you really want to try a fancy serum, I'd recommend vitamin C. I use this one because vitamin C degrades as it ages, and these guys say they make it fresh when it's ordered. It's got decent scientific evidence for anti-aging, unlike most of the stuff out there that's trendy but lacking evidence and probably snake oil. It's an exfoliant, but it supposedly doesn't leave you more vulnerable to UV damage like most chemical exfoliants do. And something about free radicals, idk.

I use that after I rinse my face in the morning, just a couple of drops in your palm then spread it all over your face neck and chest. Then I top it off with CeraVe AM for a moisturizer + SPF. Exfoliate, moisturize and sunblock are the heavy hitters of skin care, as far as I can tell. Those two guys touch all three bases.

I can't even pretend to help with the other there, I suck at all those. But I think I got skincare pretty well figured out; I read a lot anyway. lol

u/AmethysstAphrodite · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

So it sounds like Melano isn't working that great for you if you're still concerned with PIH and increasing brightness? Have you ever tried a 20% Ascorbic acid serum? It really helps to decrease pigmentation issues and increases brightness for me. I used to use 15% Ascorbic acid serum but I really got effects when I switched to 20%. I would recommend a 20% Vitamin C serum especially if you can't use ferments.

Here are some 20% Vitamin C serums that seem to fit your needs with not having any aloe, carbomer, fatty alcohols, denatured alcohol, or ferments. (I don't think I missed anything if I did I apologize. The ingredients lists all look to be without the ingredients you mentioned). One of these is on Amazon and all are under $40:

-Nufountain 20% Vitamin C serum: https://www.amazon.com/NuFountain®-Ferulic-Vitamin-Ordered-Shipping/dp/B0039LZW78

-C21.5% serum but it's from Wishtrend: http://www.wishtrend.com/skin-care/1215-pure-vitamin-c215-advanced-serum-by-wishtrend.html

Then I would also recommend a 5% or higher Niacinimide product to help lighten PIH and increase brightness. Here is one of my favorites that seems to not have any of the ingredients you can't use: https://www.stratiaskin.com/products/rewind

Otherwise here is a good resource for high % niacinimide ab products:


I would also recommend considering adding ginseng into your skin care regimen to increase brightness. I've found ginseng to help increase my skins brightness and glow, similar to ferments but more "lively" of an effect.

This is my new favorite ginseng product, also from Wishtrend and it's under $40 and doesn't appear to have any of the ingredients you mentioned: http://www.wishtrend.com/skin-care/1669-ginseng-serum-iam-from.html?search_query=Ginseng&results=14

They also have a ginseng mask: http://www.wishtrend.com/skin-care/1671-ginseng-mask-i-m-from.html?search_query=Ginseng&results=14

ETA: wait, can you use propylene glycol, caprylyl glycol or butylene glycol or are those also off limits? I'm not sensitive to fatty alcohols so idk if it's particular ones you're sensitive to or literally all of them. God they're in everything wtf?!

If you're sensitive to all then it looks like the C21.5 is your safest bet for high % Ascorbic acid serum? And you can also look at the ab products with Niacinimide resource link I gave as well. High % Ascorbic acid serum and high % Niacinimide should help to lighten PIH and increase brightness :)

u/ladysyazwina · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction
  • Since it's your first time, i'd recommend a 0.5mm dermaroller. Anything lower than that would not be deep enough to stimulate collagen growth. Also, don't cheap out and get a low quality one.

  • Well, you can but it's best that you just buy one size first, in case you find that microneedling isn't your thing. Some people can take up to 6 months or even a year to move from 0.5mm to 1mm. Your skin needs to get used to it first. One dermaroller can last you a couple of months btw. If the needles start looking dull and blunt, replace it with a new one or else you'll end up damaging your skin instead.

  • A 0.5mm shouldn't hurt too much but anything higher than that would definitely hurt so in the future, once you move up to a longer needle size, you would probably need a numbing cream. Also, always wash your face first before you dermaroll!

    In terms of sanitizing the roller before and after, this is what I do. First, I clean it with water (you can also use soap if you like) then I put it in head first in a clean plastic cup and pour 70% Isopropyl Alcohol in the cup so it's just enough to cover the head (I prefer 70% because a higher alcohol content will make it evaporate faster and logic says it won't have enough time to sanitize!). Anyway, just let it sit in the cup for 10-15 minutes, take it out and then wait about 2 minutes or so. Once it's dry-ish, I run it under hot water and let it completely air dry before applying it to my skin.

    After you finish rolling, repeat the same procedure. Wash the roller, dunk it in alcohol for 10-15 minutes, run it under hot water, let air dry then put it somewhere clean (preferably in a box).

  • It depends on the size. With a 0.5mm, you can use it once every 2-3 weeks. If you go higher, like 0.75mm or 1mm then you should use it sparingly like once every 4-6 weeks because it takes time for your skin to properly heal. Do not use it everyday.

  • I noticed you said that you don't really have a routine? You should definitely have at least a moisturizer and a sunscreen (this is a given) before you start dermarolling. After you dermaroll, your skin will be a bit sensitive and tight and it will definitely feel like a bad sunburn so you should pamper it a bit. I find that sheet masks are also great to calm down the redness and irritation.

    The most important thing for me is using a Vitamin C serum. I use one with 20% L-ascorbic acid everyday (also right after I dermaroll) and it has significantly reduced some of my scars (it stings a little bit though). This is where sunscreen is important!!! Wearing sunscreen helps protect your skin (and scars) from getting darker. Those products you linked look great but you should definitely patch test them first to see if you have any bad reaction to them or not before you start microneedling.

    Here are some other Vitamin C serums which are well loved by many:



    Lastly, one important thing about microneedling is patience. You won't see improvements right away but you will if you keep on maintaining it. Hope that helps! :-)

The Cerave AM have low UVA (responsible for aging) protection.

Look for higher UVA protection/PPD, usually found in Asian and European sunscreen.

Hi. Looking into getting my first Vitamin C product and Amazon led me to this one:


It has some good reviews but isn't AB. I'm new to this sub and have been reading about Vit C but would love some advice on this particular product. Thanks!

"Purified Water, 20% L-Ascorbic Acid, Ethoxydiglycol, DL- Panthenol, Glycerin, Magnesium Sulfate, Ferulic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium PCA, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid. pH of 2.5-3."

I currently use NuFountain's C20+Ferulic. That brand has a few different formulas available and the price is good.

I also used this one about a year ago when they were giving it out for free. I actually liked it but didn't repurchase it.

I also tried making my own but was way too lazy to keep up with it and too lazy to check the pH.

Edit: Added link to the product. And no, it's not an affiliate link! :)

u/skinnyjunk · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I have three suggestions for you. Since it's one spot and it's on his body, not his face, he can use a higher concentrated spot treatment.

  1. You can get him a high percentage AHA treatment, like the 10% AHA Body Lotion by Paula's Choice. AHA works well to fade sun damage and discolorations but its drawback is that it makes your skin sun sensitive so it's very important to be diligent about applying sunscreen. If you don't, you might end up with a burn, and/or worse sun damage. Sunscreen use should be continued for about two weeks after the last application.

  2. You can get him a Vitamin C serum. Properly formulated ones are absolutely amazing at fading sun damage and other discolorations. Using one has made the biggest difference in my sun damaged skin. They can get expensive, and the market is oversaturated with absolutely SHIT formulations that do nothing, so it's important to know what to look for. 95% of the vitamin C serums on Amazon are crap, for example. However, I can recommend NuFountain's C20 serum. It uses L-Ascorbic Acid, which is the most effective form of vitamin C, has a minimal ingredient list, includes ferulic acid to stabilize the L-AA, and is made fresh when you order. The reason these things are important is that L-AA is very finicky and prone to oxidizing and becoming ineffective. It's also the cheapest well-formulated L-AA serum I've found. The downside to using a Vitamin C serum is that it has to be kept in the fridge if you want it to last long enough to be able to finish the bottle. Otherwise it'll eventually turn orange and stain your skin.

  3. You can also get him a 2% hydroquinone cream. I don't have any experience with them, so I don't have any specific recommendations. But they are also effective for discolorations of all sorts. The downside to them is again, photosensitivity, meaning your dad will have to be careful about applying sunscreen every day.

    I know for sure that you can can combine options 1 and 2, but I'm not sure about combining hydroquinone with other products. I just haven't done any research on that.
u/spunky-omelette · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty

I'm receiving some new products and struggling to figure out how to fit them into my routine. I'm also wondering what's the best way to consistently continue using my retinol prescription alongside so many other things!

Skin Type: Normal/sensitive/slightly acne-prone

Country/Climate I'm in: East coast USA (we forgot how to December...but winter is around the corner)

Top Skin Concern: Preventative care and daily maintenance

Current Routine/Products I'm Using:


  • CeraVe foaming wash

  • Gokujun Hyaluronic Lotion (light) (in light - regular gave me some fleshy bumps a year ago... I might try to reintroduce it again though)

  • CosRx snail 96 mucin power essence

  • CeraVe in the tub

  • Hada Labo UV Creamy Gel


  • Banila Clean It Zero sherbert

  • Hada Labo foaming cleanser

  • CosRx AHA or BHA (depending on how things feel, not every night)

  • Adapalene 0.01% (not every night)

  • CosRx snail 96 mucin power essence

  • CeraVe in the tub

  • Too Cool For School pumpkin sleeping pack


  • NuFountain C20+ Ferulic serum - I used this earlier in the year and loved it, although it turned the undersides of my nails kind of yellow... it worked really well and I'd like to reintroduce it.

  • SCINIC Honey AIO - I have this coming soon, I've used raw honey with massive success and my skin seems happy with propolis products

  • CosRx Rice Mask bought on a whim and on its way, I couldn't say no to the sale

  • Joseon Dynasty Cream - I've been lusting after this since it first started generating buzz earlier this year, so it's my Christmas gift to myself. Not sure if I should try to replace the CeraVe with it? Will its ingredients not play nicely with my other products?


  • Where in my routine would these sorts of products fit best?
  • Why does my Vitamin C serum often discolor the whites of my fingernails?
  • Will the Scinic AOI honey ampoule make my Hada Labo lotion redundant?
  • Should I use the Cosrx rice mask as a sleeping pack?
u/Cranberry_Lips · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

L-ascorbic acid does, however, the serum has to either be at a pH of less than 3.5, or it must be in a waterless serum, like The Ordinary's.

I'm currently using this one. After cleansing, I apply 6 drops to my face, wait 15 mins, then follow with the rest of my routine. It lasts me about 4 months, which is about how long it takes for it to start oxidizing. I've also used NuFountain and Timeless in the past. I just never found them to give me the results that Paula's Choice has.

Also, it will take about 3 or so months for you to start seeing improvements. The same thing goes for starting a peptide serum.

u/riotkitty · 1 pointr/scacjdiscussion

I really like the NuFountain C + Ferulic serum.

I like that they date it and its always been fresh. One time I got a bottle of Timeless and it was already yellow when I got it. Plus I feel like my skin is clearer when with the NuFountain than with the Timeless because of the Vitamin E.

To keep it fresh longer I usually keep the main bottle in the fridge and fill up a .5 oz dropper bottle halfway that I keep in the bathroom and refill as needed.
