hydrating

This product seemed to provide more hydration to my dry skin. Will definitely continue to use the sample. If it continues to help with redness and dryness, I will purchase.

sensitive skin - BEWARE
Sampled

If you are sensitive to lotions/creams/skin care --- BEWARE!!! Test it first before spreading it all over your sweet little face. I did NOT test this beforehand and wooowwww --- it BURNS!!!!! and my face was a lovely shade of pink for several hours afterward.
PROCEED WITH CAUTION.

I will not be trying the rest of the sample size. Not really sure what a "moisture barrier" is even supposed to accomplish... sounds fancy though!
For me... when it comes to my face... less is best.

Didn't notice a difference
Sampled

I got a sample of this product in my Birchbox and have been using it morning and night under my moisturizer. I must say I haven't noticed any difference at all in my skin. For costing 70 bucks, I want this product to cure all of my skin ailments (combination skin, acne, etc) and then some! I'll finish using the sample to see if I notice a change in my skin's hydration down the road... but I probably won't buy the full size product after I'm through.

Skin Enhancer
Sampled

I have used this only a few times so far since I just received it in my November box. I did not notice an onion/garlic smell and there is no stinging for me either. I have oily skin so I solely used this product when just hanging around the house. I don't see myself buying this because I don't like multi-step skin care. I am a BB/CC girl.

Give it a few tries!

I received this product in my november box. The first time i used it, my face broke out in a rash but it only lasted about 2 mins. The tingle surprised me but then I realized it was the serum working on my face. Love this product even with the first try side effects and from reviews I have read here and other sites, it looks like my face will clear up and stay hydrated! Thank you Birch Box for now another steller item.

Sunburned my face
Sampled

Hopefully not too many had my experience with this product but I trashed mine. I tried the elixir for the first time and that was my last time. I put it on after cleaning my face, after it was dried. Within a minute my cheeks started feeling warm and I thought nothing of it until I looked in the mirror. Everywhere that I applied the elixir looked like I just got a fresh sunburn on my face. My face was red and felt like a sunburn, it hurt. The smell of this product isn't too pleasant either. On my neck it looks like a little rash. I washed my face but now waiting for it to calm down. This product definitely irritated my face and not for me.

wishing for more

This is a great brand and a great product. I have not tried one thing from DDF that didn't work just like the claim on the bottle. Love it!

Be careful !
Sampled

I was excited to try this serum and applied according to the directions on my face and neck, the result is what looks alike a chemical burn on my neck and a tingling burning sensation on my face! Definitely not good my plans for the day are ruined because I look ridiculous....

nice light elixer
Sampled

This product has a nice light feel on the skin and contains a blend of natural botanical extracts. My face felt refreshed and smooth and ready for moisturizer and makeup. The only reason I would not use DDF amplifying elixer to replace my usual primer is that I find the formula to be a bit runny -- it pours out of the tube very quickly and I keep ending up with more on my hand than I need. Otherwise, very nice product.
