Terrible Product

Within minutes of applying this product, my face was very red and burning. I would absolutely not recommend this product to anyone.

Burned my skin

As soon as I applied it my face became red as if sunburned and felt as if on fire until I washed it off. I would not try this again.

Burns like a chemical peel

I received this as one of the bonus samples with $35 purchase. As with everyone else that has rated this product low, my skin reaction to it was so bad it looked like I had a sunburn the next day and my face is still peeling and it's been a week! Awful, will never use this again. I do not see what the benefits of this product are.

No

This really seems like an unnecessary product and it's way too expensive. There are plenty of reviews from people who's skin was irritated by this product, or who don't get the point of it, but even the good reviews can't seem to specify what exactly this is good for or what it's doing for them. And for $70, it not only needs to perform a specific function and work well, but it needs to be pretty darn impressive. I'm not paying that much on top of my skincare routine just to say my skin is a bit more hydrated or something. I've personally gone through 3 deluxe samples of this, which is quite a bit because it's a liquid, and have not noticed anything different one way or the other. Sorry, this one is just silly to me.

Irritated my skin so bad

I used the sample that came in my Birchbox and i would never buy this product otherwise. It made my face burn at first and within a few minutes it was red and blotchy. I've never had anything do this to my face before. DO NOT BUY!! i could of just used any $5 bottle of face lotion and had a better experience.

Made my face turn red

This is a horrible product, at least for me! I have never had a skin reaction to any product no matter how high end or low end. The first time I used it I woke up with a red rash on my face. The only reason I gave it one star is the site would not let me submit the review with no stars.

Horrible!

Thank goodness I put this on at night before going to bed! Within 5 minutes my face was red and blotchy and my face is usually pretty tough at handling all the chemicals I put it through. After washing my face immediately the redness went down within an hour. Never using this product again!!

Smells like an ashtray

This is the absolute worst serum I have ever used. How this passed through a focus group I'll never understand. It stinks like a dirty ashtray and the smell does NOT wear off until washed off. In addition, it's not so much a serum as a liquid, so much of this product is wasted just pouring it from the bottle to your fingers. Also laced with parabens. I wouldn't pay $7 for this let alone $70.

Terrible Smell

I'm sure this product is great and does exactly what it promises to do. However, once I put it on, I regretted it immediately, as the scent was terrible. I'm sure this is a personal preference; I just have a really sensitive sense of smell.

really painful product

I have sensitive skin but usually love the DDF line of cleansers, exfoliators and moisturizers.

Within 10 minutes of using this amplifying elixir, though, my face turned bright red and felt like it was burning (as if I had a really bad sunburn). My skin took a day of cold compresses to return to normal and I was worried the product would cause semi-permanent damage!
