just so so

While I did not have a reaction to this product like many other reviewers stated I didn't really see any effect from the product at all. It did absorb into the skin nicely but I never saw any results.

Reaction

I have a bad allergy to this product. It is very clear and light and absorbs like a serum, but my skin starts burning when I use it.

Excellent penetration, so-so results
Sampled

Applied each morning after cleansing, was very impressed with the manner in which the product penetrated my skin. It is a very high-quality serum and my skin absorbed it well.

Can't really say it made any real difference in my acne-prone skin. I was also on the look out for whatever benefit an increased "moisture barrier" would have, as the product boasts it would.

Once the sample was exhausted, I wasn't impressed enough to purchase a full size. As the quality was great, I would consider using other products in the line.

Awful! AVOID THIS
Sampled

I guess at some point in my life my skin had to react to something... and this product was it. First time I've EVER had a reaction!

It was horrible; within a couple minutes my face was bright red wherever this touched, and burning badly. I washed it off immediately, but the redness stayed for several hours. You could even seen the outlines of where my fingers had applied it!!

I even reread the packaging to make sure it wasn't a chemical peel that I had somehow missed; HORRIBLE product! Who would use this twice a day?? There should definitely be a warning on this product about the sun juice or whatever in the world is in it that is so abrasive. I see I am far from the only person who had this reaction. AVOID!!

LOVE!!
SampledPurchased

I love this stuff!!! I received it as a sample a while back and used it a few days before setting it aside to try other samples (the sample lasts quite a while, fyi). I found it again recently and started using it - and fell in love! Let me start by saying I don't have sensitive skin. This elixir gives my skin a wonderfully healthy glow and helps plump my deepening smile lines around my eyes. I love it so much I bought the full size. A little goes a long way, so it should last me a while. I saw there were horrible reviews for this product and had to speak up. Not everyone has skin sensitivity to this product! If you don't have sensitive skin, give it a try!! I will definitely repurchase!!

Finally, something that works!
Sampled

I finally tried this product last night and this morning my skin felt amazing!! I could feel & see the improvement in my skin texture. It felt VERY smooth, like baby skin!! I have combination skin, I'm very oily around my nose and cheeks, & very dry sometimes flaky around my forehead and chin, especially in the winter. This product helped balanced my skin as well. I didn't have to blot my face in the oily areas & I didn't how to apply lotion to the dry areas! *Just keep in mind it's very watery. I spilt a lot of it thinking it was a oil consistency*
I'm truly AMAZE! I will definitely purchase the full-size!!!

Incredible Skin Tone
Sampled

I am not a person that typically writes reviews, but this product is truly amazing. I have never used a product that caused such a visible improvement in my skin. After just a few days of using it once a day, my skin is brighter and more even. It also improved my acne. I have very sensitive skin and I am often reactive to ingredients used in skin care. Using the DDF Amplifying Elixir once a day doesn't cause irritation for me (twice a day causes a little irritation after several day). It just makes my skin glow.

I love the Elixir so much that I am going to buy other DDF products as well.

Terrible!
Sampled

This product should really warn you to test on a small area. As the others have said, I put the serum on my entire face and neck as the package indicated and ended up with a red, splotchy mess a few minutes later. Maybe it strengthen's your skin's moisture barrier after, but first it really seems to strip it down!

Improved skin quality
Sampled

I wasn't going to write a review until I saw all the reviews citing bad reactions to this product. I don't have sensitive skin...let me start there. I'm late 30's and increasingly concerned about fine lines. I've used this product just once a day at night and have begun noticing improved skin quality, particularly improved firmness. I would recommend this to those who do not have sensitive skin.

TERRIBLE!

Like many others, I had a negative reaction to this product as soon as I put it on my face. My face got hot, red, blotchy, itchy and painful to the touch. It was awful! Thank goodness I washed it off right away, I don't know what the outcome would have been had I slept in it as I originally planned! I would not recommend this product to anyone.
