Not worth it
Sampled

Does absolutely nothing. Not worth the money unless you want a greasy sheen to your face

Not worth it
Sampled

Not a seamless product when mixed with moisturizer. Directions NOT to use it solo, so I'm super unimpressed. Saw NO difference between this product & an organic extra virgin olive oil. Bummer, cuz I like other products by this brand.

Good concept.
Sampled

I like the idea of this booster, but it is not for me. It felt astringent when I combined it with my cream as instructed. I added 3 drops. In the hot summer months when I am tackling acne in certain areas, this may be a good product for me. I did not notice any "boosting" effects, but it is hard to notice from one application and the sample foil did not allow for multiple uses.

Didnt like it

I liked the idea vut instead of getting a glow it made me pink. I just looked flushed all day, like i was too hot or embarrassed. If it had just made me gkow it would have been nice but i dont like looking red.

I just don't like it. The smell is not for me and also just doesn't do anything for my skin or routine.

Didn't wake me up

I used this one morning in combination with moisturizer and it really made no difference in my routine or revitalized me more than my essential oils. It smelled really nice though.

Good brand but the sample wasn't convincing
Sampled

I do want to start off by saying thie application of this product wa phenomenal. I loved how it just smoothed on and has a very light/fresh smell. However, due to the size of the sample I believe, I really wasn't able to notice much else or if it made a difference of sorts.

Didn't notice a difference

I added this to my moisturizer and it made it absorb into my skin faster. Also really thinned it out because I only need a little moisturizer. I didn't notice a difference.

Over-Hyped Serum
Sampled

I really didn't like how messy this was to use and it didn't really make any difference in my routine or results. It might be a good addition to your moisturizer routine but don't expect visible results. It did blend really well with my moisturizer and wasn't super heavy like you'd expect. If you're just starting out and need to get the "basics", I would skip this one.

Superfluous product
Sampled

I like Clarins, but this type of product does not seem practical to me: mixing this booster with my face lotion or cream in the palm of my hand was not as easy as might have been envisioned by the brand. The liquid kept running, and in the end I wasted more product than mixed in. It was frustrating. Basically, who has the time to mess around like that?
