What are your thoughts about these serums? One better than the other?

Re: Mad hippie vs Timeless vit c

I think I tried Timeless a long, long time ago - can't remember much about it.  I used Mad Hippie consistently for a couple of years and liked it a lot, but I stopped when I started using Isomers Glutathiosome serum because it contains MAP and I didn't think I needed two vitamin C products.  There was a period of time when I wasn't using the Isomers serum, but was using a Skinn serum that had Vitamn C so, again, I didn't go back to the Mad Hippie.  I'm back with the Isomers serum these days.  If/when I run out of the Isomers and Evine isn't having a TTV on it, I'll go back to Mad Hippie.

Comparing both the Mad Hippie and Timeless, they each have different forms of Vitamin C; SAP in the Mad Hippie and L-Ascorbic Acid in the Timeless.  People have their own reasons for the form they prefer.  Ultimately, it's up to you as to which kind you want to use.

The texture of the Timeless serum is like water. How would you describe the Mad Hippie one? Does it absorb on contact? Leave a sticky residue?

@Texasmouse - it's a little bit thicker than that.  It always absorbed well for me and wasn't sticky.

I tried Mad Hippie once and my skin didn't tolerate it well, started turning red. Obviously this was just me and other people use it all the time, but I use my treatment products full strength and have never had an issue. I used to use Paula's Choice, but switched to Timeless and am very happy.

I haven't used the mad hippie, but I do like the timeless.  It can oxidize though, so use it up once opened. cant beat the price. IMO it's on par with skinceuticals, which I used to use.
