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.

Irritated my skin

My skin isn't really sensitive, it's more on the dry side and acne prone (sounds weird though, right?). However, when I tried this serum it made my face really red and slightly itchy. People thought I had been out in the sun too long. So not really recommended in my book.

In love!
Purchased

I am in love with this stuff. I could never do creams or lotions on my face because anything would make me oily or breakout and I have really good skin. But after my aesthetician suggested trying a serum because any moisturizer is important for your face even if it doesn't look dry, I tried this based on reviews. Yes, its pricy but it works, I don't get oily, I don't breakout, I don't even need makeup my skin looks so dewy! Plus, I use 2 pumps daily sometimes 3 if I applied at night and I bought this the end of November, it's now the end of February and I still have probably a week or two left! It can last 3-4 months so the price equals out to less than $20 a month so I'm sold! I am going to try the DDF wrinkle resist plus pore minimizer next because I feel the quality of DDF is great, I hope I love it as much as this otherwise I'm just going to go back to this product.

Smells LIKE ONIONS!!!

So, I received this in my box a few months ago. LOVED IT! It seems to irritate a lot of people (itchy redness) but for me, my skin feels soft and silky. The only problem is, it smells like yellow onions! Not sure if this bad smell outweighs the good... but i probably wont be paying 70 bucks for an onion-smelling product.

not for sensitive skin

pretty sure this product irritated my skin after a few days use, dry patches and flaking which never happens to me.

Need to add it to your daily routine

Love this product! I use it in-between my cleanser and moisturizer. I've noticed that my face isn't as oily and my makeup seems to last longer since I've started using it. Not in love with the price though.

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.

Worked Great

I decided to try this with the DDF moisturizing dew sample and they worked really well! My face was less dry all the way into the next day! Don't know if I would buy it for the price...

Good Product

The elixir made my skin really soft but was overall too moisturizing for my combination skin. I can see how this product would be great for someone with dryer skin.
