Great product.

I was having a breakout at the time I received this as a sample and it definitely helped to clear up my face. I am not sure how well it works on wrinkles but it definitely helps with blemishes.

Great for blemishes
Sampled

With the size of the sample I could tell the effectiveness on my blemishes which it reduced overnight, however not enough in the sample to notice other skin anti aging treatments.

Meh

The spot treatment did not work as well as I'd hope. I have a lot of acne scars and hyperpigmentation, but I didn't see any significant changes while using this product.

Liquid Gold!

I used this on my acne scars on my cheeks and after the first night I could see a difference! A little goes a long way so I've been using this for a full week now and still have some left. My scars are barely noticeable now, which is something I never thought could be possible.

Great acne treatment
SampledPurchased

When I received this tiny sample in my Birchbox, I was very skeptical at first. However, I noticed a difference in my skin after just one use! I have tried hundreds of acne treatments in my 15 years of having acne prone skin and it is rare to find a product that reduces the size of cystic acne, while treating your post-acne scarring, while treating your wrinkles and dry patches all at the same time. This product is the real deal. I have never been so excited about an acne product before. I think the reason the sample was so small was because Paul's Choice knew that their product worked and if you had the skin concerns that the product treats, you would be buying a full size. I am curious to try other products from this brand.

"guaranteed to impress"... I don't think so
Sampled

This product promises to...
"1. unclog pores with first use" i don't think so
"2. diminish white bumps" didn't have any to start
"3. minimize enlarged pores" no, it certainly did not
"4. refine & smooth skin's texture" no, it did not
"5. minimize sebaceous hyperplasia" didn't have this to start
"6. smooth dry, rough patches" no, it did not
"7. help balance oily skin" it dried my skin out too much
"8. fade red marks from breakouts" made my skin more red and splotchy
"9. reduce breakouts" unsure
In addition, the product felt a little sticky after application and continued to be sticky while my skin pulled too tight from dryness. *my results after 1 use
