I was excited to get this in my box, however the sample is so small it is hard to tell if the product is worthwhile or not. The sample was in a perfume sample vial - not helpful for trying a new face product.

Did not do much for my skin
Sampled

I used this product as a spot treatment for red areas and blemishes. It did not do anything to alleviate the specific areas. There was no difference when i woke up.

Mini Life Saver!!!
Sampled

This is by far one of the best things I have received in my Birch Box. It might have been one of the smallest samples I have gotten, but it packs a huge punch. I am on my second day of using it and I can already see the difference. That has never happened with my skin. I have stubborn stress acne and it just is melting away and my soft skin is coming back. Very very happy with this products.

simply amazing

I've had some trouble with some bumps on my chin for a few months now. This products pulled it all up and cleared my skin up. No more bumps. Amazing!

I had never heard of this product before this month and after only a couple uses have never used something like this. I've never had terrible skin but have larger pores, some blackheads, and some small bumps on my face. These have already began diminishing and my face has a sort of glow to it now. I definately plan to buy this product at some point!

Did Not Help Imperfections
Sampled

The branding does not look high end. The formula had a foul odor. This product was not effective.

Great
Sampled

This product is great! ( just as the title states) it does what it's supposed to, but the only thing is, I notice my face a little redder after i apply. Maybe its because I have sensitive skin?

Works well

This product works well. I've now used it several times, and I think it is worth the price. It's oil-y kind of, which is an interesting texture.

Seems to work
Sampled

I think this helped clear up some acne/blackheads on my nose. The sample was tiny so I'm disappointed that I'll only get a couple uses out of it.

Non drying acne treatment
Sampled

This product is awesome. While it did not completely get rid of my pimples overnight, it significantly reduced their size!! And it did it without leaving residue or drying me out. Will definitely purchase when I use up my remaining Mario badescu drying lotion.
