Do not use!

I should have read the reviews before using... I developed a burning feeling after putting on and had to immediately wash off with cold water! Left a red rash for a view hours. One of the worst products I've received from BirchBox.

Terrible!

I was also a victim of the red burning rash all over my face that would not go away even after several washes. Due to the massive response of the exact same reactions, this product should be discontinued!

Awful

The smell of this product made me nauseous! It was unbelievably horrible. Had to wash it off immediately but it seemed to not go away.

Awful stuff!

I should have read the review before using this product. I as well developed a red burning rash on my face within a few minutes of applying. The rash and burning lasted for hours, which was not only uncomfortable, but a little embarrassing since I had to work that day. My Birch Box sample is now in the trash.

Beware!

I've been reading all the reviews with one star and it seems I'm not alone. I do not generally have sensitive skin. I used this at night before bed and woke up with extremely swollen areas on my face. They have subsided, but I look like my face and neck have been very badly sunburned and they itch like crazy!! Definitely will not use again. And a warning that if you have a date, job interview, or anything important coming up within the week do not use for the first time!!

Irritated my skin!

I wish I would have read the reviews before trying this sample. I love trying new products but right after applying it, the elixir made me feel like my face was on fire! My entire face got red and started burning. I washed it off right away and luckily didn't have any lasting effects but I would NOT recommend this product to anyone!

I wanted to like it, but it made my face erupt

I had heard good things about DDF products, so I was excited to try this. After washing my face before bed, I applied my regular moisturizer, dutifully followed it with the elixir, then went to bed.
The next morning, I followed the same wash+moisturizer+elixir routine, added minimal makeup, then went off to work.
By lunch time, I had horrific acne erupting on my chin and cheeks. I don't have sensitive skin and haven't had acne since I was 17; more surprising: I haven't EVER had cystic acne before!! Still, I didn't blame the elixir--I figured it was just one of those things.
However, after letting the acne heal and then experimenting a bit, I can say without hesitation that this product was the culprit. If I leave it out of my skincare routine, my face is fine. If it use it, I get painful cystic acne on my cheeks and whiteheads on my chin. Every single time.
The elixir glides onto my skin and I had no issues with it when I first put it on. The acne thing, as you can guess, is a deal-breaker.
It's obviously a great product for some, but for me, it's literally painful.

Red lobster

This product made my face & neck extremely red, it looked like I had tanned way too long or that I had hives! It made my face & neck itch & burn so bad. I had to look up other reviews to see if this was an issue with others because I don't have sensitive skin. Sure enough, others that tried this have had the same problem. I'm not sure whats in this product but I am now weary to try other samples without knowing whats in the product. Lesson learned!

Ouch!

I applied this product as directed and about 10 min later my face was on FIRE!!!! I'm not sure what caused this but I won't be using it again!

Terrible

I hate this product. First off, I don't really get what it is supposed to do? Moisturize before I moisturize? Why wouldn't I just buy a better lotion? Second off, it didn't do what it promised to do. As soon as I put it on, my face started to burn and get really red and splotchy! Luckily i tried it at night and not before I had to run to work because my face felt hot and puffy for like an hour after I put it on! Maybe I had an allergic reaction? Doubt it because I don't have very sensitive skin. Maybe it reacted bad in combination with my face lotion? Who knows... either way, I hated it and won't even be finishing my sample. No thank you!
