I had this sample for a couple of months and didn't really know what to use it for. Finally I looked it up and saw it could work as a spot treatment for a terrible breakout I had. I'm talking big, swollen, painful underground pimples. I applied it overnight, and they weren't gone the next day but the pain was and they had flattened out and gotten smaller. After a week, they were completely gone with no dark spots or scarring, and no dryness or irritation. SOLD. No product has made this kind of difference for my skin, and I will happily pay the price.

Too small to tell

I understand these are sample sizes of high end products, but 2 uses of a skincare product is not enough to notice any difference. Not even worth trying at this small a vile. Also not crazy about the texture - reminds me of olive oil

This product cleared the pimples on my face fast! The texture of this is almost like a serum or an oil, which I love because it doesn't dry out the skin. I really love this product!

Great on acne
Sampled

Though I don't typically get acne, whenever I get a pimple, it seems to last forever. I started using this when it came in my Birchbox as a "spot" fix and left it on overnight. It's a complete miracle worker. By morning, my pimple is either gone completely or reduced dramatically. LOVE this product!

Must Have*
Sampled

I already have deemed Paula's Choice as one of my absolute favorite skin care brands, so when I got this I was super excited. I used it as a spot treatment for my acne scars and marks on my face. I felt that it really helped in breaking them down some and helping them to fade.. Since it is a sample size I wasn't able to test for more than about 2 weeks but I feel confident that if I had a full size of this product it would significantly help with fading marks and other blemishes!

This is an amazing product! Any time I put it on a blemish or a pimple that is starting to appear the next day it is gone. I have never found a product to work like this, it seems to be magic!

Ok I guess

I didn't really see much a difference, but it did feel really nice on my face!

Unsure

The sample was small, but while using it I didn't notice much improvement in my fine lines or wrinkles. Perhaps if the sample was larger I could have used it longer and gotten some results.
