interesting, makes sense but it is the first time i have ever heard that i use retin A (must be used at night) and copper peptides at night so i have to use C in the morning (C + CP = ineffective) sometimes if i skip the CP i'll use C at night also, but i am hoping it does the most good during the daytime trying to fend off those nasty free radicals caused by the sun

if you don't use CP i don't think it would hurt to use it 2x/day

here is a good link to the vit C basics this is a great forum btw

Interesting. May I ask what the copper peptides do? I also found this, it sounds like he's implying that vit c could be used am & pm:

Why Use a Vitamin C Serum for Your Skin.wmv - YouTube

I also found this article:

When to Apply Antioxidant Skin Care | Antioxidant Skincare

Thank for the link I'll definitely look through it!

Copper peptides are good for repairing and healing. There are some out there that believe copper peptides are bad for you but there hasn't been enough info/research imo to prove that yet.
