Didn't do anything for me

I've tried 2 of these kinds of serums now so maybe it's just me, but they don't seem to do anything for me. I do use a very thick creme on my whole face and that power of hydration is what my skin craves...this serum didn't seem to "boost" this in any way, it just felt like it THINNED out my face creme. NOT what I like :( Sorry DDF

Not something I'll be buying

Really didn't see a difference in my skin. Stayed the same. Won't be buying it. The sample size was decent though, so thats why I gave it a 2-star.

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!

Loved it.

This worked great for me. I will definitely consider purchasing, however am still on the fence about it because of how expensive it is.

No difference

I really did not see any visible improvement after using this product. It did not give any kind of a boost to my skin. I will not be purchasing.

Does Exactly What It Says

I have fair and sensitive skin. I have found that using this after washing and before moisturizing vastly improves skin dryness and smoothness for the entire day. Without it, winter skin feels dry, stretched and itchy. I like it a lot but I agree that it's very pricey and may not be worth it.

meh

I cant really tell any difference after using this. It is softening but Im not going to spend seventy bones on something I spend less on that works just as well.

Rash

I have sensitive skin, and after a few days of using this I developed a little rash all over my face. I quit using it and convinced myself it could have been unrelated but it happened again when I tried the product a few weeks later. Too bad, my skin could use some help with its moisture barrier.

Bad. Very bad

I've used some DDF samples before, like the moisturizer, and it was wonderful! So I was really excited to try this sample. I used as directed, after cleansing my face before bed.. The next morning my whole face was red, and itchy. Even after taking allergy medicine, a portion of my neck is still splotchy. The sample now lies in the trash :/
