had high hopes
Purchased

i bought on a whim with it on sale and the great reviews. The packaging is to die for and is gorgeous. The product inside had a nice fresh clean scent but with a weird hint of something almost like it smelled like it had went bad, but thought it was just me because it wasnt a total obnoxious smell. I used it for 2 weeks and omg it broke me out so bad. i had some bumps on my face that i have never had that big before. Other people before me have had a great experience with this. just mine wasnt great.

Not Great for combination skin

my skin is a mixture of dry in some places and oily in others. the thick consistency just did not do it for me.

Not for me

I've been looking for a good moisturizer for a while, but sadly this product is not the one for me.

Maybe I used too much, but it took a long time for it to absorb into my skin and it left my face feeling greasy. I put it on after a shower, before bed and the result in the morning was pretty soft and supple skin. But it took a good two hours before the oily feeling went away.

Others seem to really enjoy the product, but I'm still on the hunt for the moisturizer that got away.

Elizabeth Arden Skin Serum
Purchased

While this seems to work nicely, it stinks. I use this about once a week (just to use it) and it does leave my face moist and hydrated, BUT it has an unpleasant scent.

Nice serum
Purchased

I bought this serum because I wanted to try. New one. I like the idea of a serum before moisturizing and was hoping this one would be great. It's OK but have not seen any appreciable difference in my skin. It's a good company and price though. I think I like the serums that are more of a gel like consistency.

Milky
Purchased

I like the light smell of this serum. I was expecting a clear serum, but it is milky like a light lotion. It is nice, but it doesn't seem to absorb into my skin and quickly as a clear serum.

Love the product, not the price

This stuff felt great on my face but I'm not thrilled with the price and amount offered for it. I also have very oily skin and it didn't do much to help counteract that.

Okay at best.

I might purchase it just to try it for a longer period of time but overall, it doesn't seem any better than other "repair" serums out there.

smooth skin

This felt really nice when applying. Made my skin feel smooth after it settled into my skin. Didn't care for the scent but it was bearable.
