I have purchased this product many times. I apply it to my cleansed face in the morning and wait at least 5 minutes for it to absorb before applying serum and makeup. It provides a silky base for my makeup giving me a hydrated finish. It helps fade my age spots particularly one that is a quarter size on my cheek and has been very stubborn over the years to reduce its appearance.
You will never find a better Vitamin C anywhere than this Elixir. Look at all the goodies in it. Send me a gallon lol. Thank you Crystal and Cody for keeping me gorgeous!
I love how this product feels on my skin. It helps calm my skin and improves texture
I have literally tried every vitamin c on the market, every tyrosinase inhibitor, and I must say that this product takes the cake. I have left it on my shelf several times to try something new, and I always come back to it. It keeps my pigmentation at bay and helps new pigmentation from forming!! It is absolutely a God-send. Also, my skin glows after applying it. I’m here for this product for life!!
Wow this is one of my favorite products! A few drops works magic on my skin. Tightens, works on pigmentation and gives me a true glow. The products I use from Montarbo Skin care work together to achieve a noticeable difference on this aging skin of mine……I was a tennis player, swimmer and loved the sun is SoCal growing up in Santa Monica, Ca. Lots of repairing has been needed to this skin of mine but I’m happy to say this product linen has worked some real magic! Give this a try, you won’t be disappointed!
Is the serum supposed to smell like cold cuts? Every time I use it on my face, I smell like I just ate a ham and cheese sandwich. Please let me know if this is normal or not.
Gotta love the beauty elixir, it’s a game changer for my skincare regimen. Especially for overall texture, elasticity, and appearance. It’s like a little magic in a bottle.
This right here is my HOLY GRAIL!
After years of fighting hyperpigmentation, I combined this Vit C 20% with the brightening treatment and advanced lactic treatment, to help fight my discoloration. The results have been amazing!!! It is magic in a bottle.
Also, Cody takes his time to explain how to use the products to maximise on the benefits. Montarbo skincare has been a blessing in my life! I no longer have to wear foundation to have confidence. Thank you Cody & team! ❤️
I absolutely love this serum. It keeps my skin smooth, even toned, and bright. I just wish it came in a bigger size
I use this product every night, my skin is so soft and glowing. I noticed the difference in my skin in just a few days. Tiny lines seem less noticeable.
Beauty Elixir is my all time favorite and I wish it came in a liter size bottle because I use it more than any other skincare products. It makes my skin feel more firm and it absorbs so well. I can tell a big difference in my skin texture since I started using it. I add (The new) moisture mask followed by spf in the morning and either Retinol or Glycolic cream at night. Love all Montarbo skincare products! And their customer service is the best!
All I can say is, this product is a game changer. Have been using for 4 years, have tried other products. Always go back to this, I’m totally hooked, won’t go without it…… makes my 70 year old skin seriously glow. I know a lot of products say that, but this really does……..
I enjoy using this vitamin c it’s really awesome ,makes my face look amazing .
Impressed with the results
This one product I make sure I don’t run out of. Have tried other things, but always go right back to the Elixir… it makes your skin like glass!❤️❤️❤️
I would never stop using this product it makes my face glow and looks very fresh every day,
It also takes care of my fine lines.
It’s so so great
Love my Vitamin C Elixir. One of my favorite skin care products. Have ordered it several times.
I'm absolutely in love with this product. Yes, I also love the Montarbo vit. C & B as well. However, I have been using retinol, retinal and Tretinoin for 3 years now. I started with the 12% vit. C and noticed a difference in the texture and brightness of my skin within 3 weeks. Switching to this Elixir wasn't because I don't like the 12%. My skin is tough as nails now (not sensitive at all) and as I've aged I have increased potency in most of my actives. Let's get the smell out of the way 1st because I'm sure everyone will have an OPINION about it. Yes, it smells like the water you have boiled hot dogs in, or the baked beans with hot dogs. It does not bother me. after applying my moisturizer and sunscreen I do not notice the smell. Knowing the ingredients in this is enough for me to overlook any odor. It has made my skin brighter, softer, faded my hormonal melasma and healthier looking. I use it once a day in the morning. After toning but before moisturizing. If you have dull skin or melasma, try this in addition to the glycolic acid, retinol and lactic acid products. I would recommend this to people who have experience with lower percentage vit. c's so you can fully appreciate it's magic. I also find that I don't have to use as much; it spreads beautifully. For reference i am 48 years old. I have tried the SkinCeuticals vit. C everyone raves about but this is the same if not better at a much more realistic price1
Best ever I’m going to be 67 and this product keeps my skin feeling radiant and vibrant. I was using the other up until the 20% came out. Love it
Haven't tried the cleanser yet but always loved the vitamin c serum!
The results are awesome!
Amazing Vitimin C…smells a little funky but that’s how you know it’s the real deal and not a bunch of fragrance! Brightens up my skin when it’s dull, love it !
Vitamin C is a very tricky product and finding that right formula is even trickier. Either it oxidizes too quickly , or the formula isnâ€™t right . Who hasnâ€™t experienced that dreaded stinging sensation to the eyes ?? This Vitamin C serum on the other hand is a Godsend. The consistency is very light . It absorbed beautifully into my skin. It gives the skin such a glowing and brightening effect . It paired very well with my other serums and moisturizers. Last , it did not irritate my eyes nor skin in any fashion . Iâ€™m very excited to have it in my routine .
This product is truly liquid gold!! I started using the Beauty Elixir twice per day, in the morning and at night before my Retin-A.
Wow what an amazing combo to work against my Melasma, my skin looks fantastic and itâ€™s such a simple regimen, I reap the results without tremendous effort because these products work that well!! Thank you Cody for your tremendous products, your advice and knowledge you freely share, we appreciate you you and Montarbo SkinCare!!
This is a fantastic Vitamin C Serum - look at all the goodies that Cody put in it for us. I use it mixed with Cody's Retinol and it ROCKS !!!! You will never, no matter how hard you look find a better Vitamin C Serum than this Elixir. Cody, my dear friend, you did it again. TY from the bottom of my heart! XOXOXOXOXO
Amazing product, loving my results. What a big difference in my complexion.
My skin looks so healthy and feels quenched Love all of my new skin care products
I wanted to review this for anyone deciding between the 12% and this. The elixir immediately disappears into my skin when I put it on rather than being able to massage it in like I do the 12%. I do however use the exfoliating products as well, but wouldnâ€™t say my skin is dry. So, itâ€™s a matter of preference because I do enjoy massaging my products in! Also, I typically struggle with some acne, but not while pregnant or breastfeeding which Iâ€™m currently doing and this is not making me break out. I do love it so far and I think theyâ€™re both great options when used as recommended!
Really great Vitamin C serum! My skin is looking brighter and feeling and looking better. I let this soak in before I go in with other products.
I just started using the beauty elixir 20% vitamin c and absolutely love the way It is working this far. It feel so great and Iâ€™m confident in the product in combination with a few other products by Montarbo!
I love this vitamin C formula. My skin looks and feels great! Thank you for making such an excellent product Cody!
This product is Great! It makes a huge difference in my skin, it brightens and smooths it, making my skin look healthy and glowing. I love that it's helping me keep my Melasma under control. Will purchase this again and again.
I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I have used Drunk Elephant C-Firm Vitamin C day serum every other day for the last year. This Beauty Elixer has completely replaced it in my beauty routine. In just 3 weeks my skin looks brighter and feels plumper! I'll never be without this product again.
I have been using this for 2 weeks or so and I can honestly say my face looks better! At first the smell was off putting but I trust Cody and kept at it. Now I look forward to applying morning and night. On FaceTime Iâ€™ve been getting compliments on my skin! It looks more radiant and I will def be ordering more!
This is the best vitamin C skin serum I have ever used! The big difference in Montarboâ€™s skin care system is that I have no doubt that the ingredients are active and doing exactly what they are intended to do. After trying too many vitamin C products, not one compares to this one!
I am very happy with this product! I am on my second bottle, and have great results with skin spots lightened, toned and clearer skin! Thank you Cody!
Love Love Love this product! It has transformed my skin! My skin is so much clearer and smoother after months of using the Beauty Elixir. I look forward to washing my face and putting this on!
This is my go to product...I find if I'm feeling tired or too lazy to spend a long time on skin care, just this product alone is enough to make my skin look and feel nourished and pampered, in the morning my skin looks fresh and hydrated. It's an amazing product!
1 of many of your products that I love.
I am on my second bottle of this and so impressed with not only the Vitamin C, but all the products I have tried. Not only are the products top of the line, but if you watch Cody's U tube videos he gives detailed instructions on how to properly use his line. Excellent products, with results. Thank-you
I never thought this gem could get any better but OMG, it did. It goes on so smooth and just feels like facial treat every day. Honestly, if I could bathe in it I would! Make this part of your routine.
Game Changer, buy 2 at a time, donâ€™t want to ever run out??
Beauty Elixir is now officially added to my skincare routine. This mighty bottle is a game changer. Making my skin so flawless, luminous and dewy in every angle of my face. I used it on my face, neck, at the back of my neck, on my chest and back of my hand everyday for morning and night. You will wish you have enough of this to shower with it, seriously! That's how good it is. If you haven't tried it yet then I highly recommend this product. It will not leave your skin oily as it absorbed quick and easy in just a few second and it smells so clean. I am hooked with this mighty bottle. Thank you, Cody, for making our skin gorgeous!
I love this magic potion!
This is definitely stronger than before. The old Elixir was not doing much for me but this is really great. My neck is very sensitive and when I first started using this new my neck started turning red right at the crease no rash no irritation just red it would go away in few hours. It just wasnâ€™t use to it but now itâ€™s fine. Itâ€™s moisturizing to I love it. I will for sure keep using it. I have a backup bottle ready for when I run out of the one Iâ€™m using. Iâ€™m always having people say keep doing what you are doing because you look great! I will keep using all Codyâ€™s products because they work good price!
2 serums in one. I was using a separate pigmentation serum and vit c. Now I just use this one. I don't find it irritating at all. Feels nice and wears great under makeup. I love that it has the THDA and L-AA vit c. It has everything I want. I will repurchase.
Maintenance of melasma is a world of itâ€™s own. Not feeling confident to leave the house until I had foundation/concealer/powder on my face for years took away confidence. I never knew about Vit c serums until a few years ago when I came across a YouTube video from Cody Montarbo about how to treat melasma. I learned about chemical exfoliations, serums and the difference between stable Vit c and unstable. I have come a long way and learned so much about how to fade my melasma as well as brightening my whole face. This is the Vit c that I have used for about a month and itâ€™s like the old version it better. Itâ€™s not as runny so itâ€™s easier to apply and massage in without dribbling off my face. I absolutely love it directly after I cleanse my face. Itâ€™s made ALL the difference in my face. I now only wear foundation on special occasions. My daily face is glowing with just a tinted sunscreen. I highly recommend spending your money on just the products that work instead of getting overwhelmed and going broke in the drugstore.
I just purchased two bottles of this magic potion Beauty Elixir...magic because it makes my Melasma disappear! I've been using it morning and night, the brightening and glow in my skin happen so quickly!! I love the original formula and still incorporate it in my Skin Care, but this new formula has even more magic than the first, I love the exfoliating feature it produces without interfering with makeup application. There has been no stinging, irritation of any kind, wow this stuff is AmaZing!!! Ladies try it you won't regret it.
This Vitamin C is fabulous I have a lot of bottles of the 12% Vitamin so I alternate using the 12% Vitamin C in the morning which is fantastic too by the way and at night I mix the New Formula Beauty Elizer with either Retin A or Retinol depending on what I feel like using and Cody, I don't know how you did it but you made your old formulas even better and the best part, as I think all your customers know, is that you truly and deeply care about all of us and that makes all the difference in the world. I adore the new Beauty Elixir - it is so wonderful there are no words to describe it except BUY IT so you can see what I mean. Your skin will love you for it. Thank you so much Cody. We all love you like crazy.
I have many red marks from old blemishes on my cheeks. This vitamin C elixir improved the look and feel of my skin markedly in the two months that I've been using it. In fact, my husband thought I was wearing makeup the other day when I wasn't!
A small bottle that packs an enormous magical potion that brightens and brings a glow to your skin, worth every cent! I love it!!!
I came this close to spending 116.00 on another vitamin c elixir and suddenly a picture popped up advertising Montarbo skincare. I looked at the ingredients first,then the price and I figured MAYBE THIS ONE WONT DISAPPOINT ,PLEASE DO WHAT YOU SAY YOUR GONNA DO..I took 1 day to think the order over ,then I pressed the Hope button...THE VITAMIN C ELIXIR IS WORTH EVERY PENNY...IM BLOWN AWAY..I WOULD EVEN PAY MORE FOR IT...BECAUSE IT WORKS...A LITTLE PEELING AND THE SKIN IS BEAUTIFUL...WHEN A FRIEND WHO IS IN THE MEDICAL FIELD COMMENTED ON MY SKIN I KNEW IT WAS A WINNER...WHEN I TOLD HIM IM USING MONTARBO SKINCARE HE SMILED AND SAID â€œwhat a small world â€œthat what he also uses CANT WAIT TO TRY THE MOISTURIZERS
I really have been enjoying this serum. The texture is slightly more viscous than many Vitamin C serums I've used in the past but I've actually come to prefer it. It absorbs wonderfully and leaves my skin feeling hydrated. It also layers well with other products, sunscreen and makeup. I've noticed an overall brightness to my skin after using this serum for the last several months. I apply it as my first step after cleansing and toning in the morning. I highly recommend it!!
I have been using the Beauty Elixir for about 2 months and it has been great for my stubborn melasma. Cody's products have REALLY worked to lighten the horrible PIH I had after having a few microneedling treatments (NOT by Cody). I purchased the big bottle to always have a backup!
I love this product! I use it every morning and night. My skin is brighter and always moist.
Normita Dela pena
I'm very happy with this product help my skin a lot
Amazing, game changer!
I like the fact that a little goes a long way. Its only been several days, so I need more time to give an effective opinion. But so far; I like the way it illuminates and feels firming.
I simply canâ€™t stay without this, it has made my life so much easier!
I've had the pleasure of using both Vit. C serums from Montarbo. I use this one in am and the 12% in evening. I love the ingredients. This one is thinner in consistency than the 12%. I love them both. Vit. C mixed with Vit. A has been the cocktail thatâ€™s most visibly faded my melasma. It also smooths the texture of my skin and brightens it. I just love this serum so much.
There is really only one thing I need to say about this product. If I could bathe in it I would. It's that spectacular.
Love this product! It has drastically reduced my aging spots in one week already.
Best vitamin C product I've ever used! Have repurchased several times. Perfect size, beautifully moisturizing!!! Love it!!!
This is the real deal. Does just what it promises! I'm 66 and have tried everything, with minimal results!, I order two at a time, don't want to get caught with it being out of stock...
Please keep this in your regimen always. I never run out!
I absolutely love this beauty elixir. It was one of the first products I've used from Cody's line. I noticed a much smoother and brighter skin Love his products.
I have dry sensitive skin, I have used several vitamin C products that are very sensitizing, I was a little scared to try 20% but I couldnâ€™t help myself, this stuff is magic! Itâ€™s hydrating and makes my skin bright and glows! Absolutely love and will always repurchase!
I started using this product after watching Cody on YouTube. I'm thankful for this little bomb. My skin is never dry anymore, with makeup on it's smooth and moisturized. I use it twice daily, more on pigmented parts of my face and I have nothing but love for it. Include it in your routine, you wonâ€™t regret it!
I absolutely love the Beauty Elixir! only a couple of drops before bed and some times in he morning as well. It is a very small bottle, but it works wonders.
I love this vitamin c formula. My skin looks and feels great! Thank you for making such an excellent product Cody!
