As 50+ woman, it’s important to me to protect my skin and avoid rapid aging. One of the tools I use to accomplish that is the use of the serum Skinceuticals CE Ferulic.  Here is my CE Ferulic review.

What is Skinceuticals CE Ferulic?

CE Ferulic is the anti-aging serum from the Skinceuticals skincare range.

Skinceuticals C E Ferulic is an anti-aging serum with an antioxidant combination that (according to the brand) provides 8 times the skin’s natural photoaging protection.

C E Ferulic contains ferulic acid, that neutralizes free radicals, builds collagen, and provides improved antioxidant protection.

Packiging and application

It comes in a small 15 or 30 ml container with a drop dispenser on top. Skinceuticals advises to use 5 drops per application which I find to be on the small side as I don’t feel 5 drops fully cover all areas of my face and neck.

The serum is easy to apply. You get one drop from the dispenser and apply directly to face. I have felt no irritation and the serum is easily absorbed by the skin.

Use and results

I have used CE Ferulic every day for 2 months now. I apply it to the skin of my face and neck each morning directly followed by Skinceuticals Ultimate UV Defense (I use SPF 30 for every day use and use the sport 50 SPF version for outdoor activities like tennis).

I must say I am very pleased with the results.

My skin feels soft, nourished and hydrated.The combination of using a serum (for preventing skin damaging and its anti-aging effects) and a sun blocker (to prevent further damage) has proven to work very well for my skin. Both the serum and suncblocker and serum are not oily at all and leaves my skin hydrated and fully protected.

I used an anti-aging cream from Clinique before but that really felt too heavy for my skin. This combination of 2 products seems light, yet provides enough hydration for my skin and is very effective in protecting it.

I have now also started to use retinol. Check out what retinol is and how it can help your skin.


I like the combination of using a serum and a sunblock.

Living in a sunny climate I feel that skin protection is essential and these 2 products together seem to do the job effectively.

The only thing I did not like about the serum is its smell. Fortunately, this is compensated by the Ultimate UV defense which has a very neutral smell.

Overall, the effects of CE Ferulic and Ultimate UV Defense has been spectacular. My skin is smoother than ever, almost entirely free of blemishes, and well hydrated.
