This product is just OK
Sampled

This product is ok if you are not expecting a miracle. I didn't have any adverse reaction from it but I'm unsure of just how much it did for my imperfections. Please note I do have aging skin and I think this product would be better suited toward a younger age group.

Disappointing
Sampled

After reading the claims this product made I had high hopes it would help my acne, large pores and wrinkles. Well, it did, but it took a LOT of product to see results. I also found it to be more effective used directly on my skin as opposed to the last step in my skin care routine as recommended in the instructions. Considering the amount of product required & the size of a bottle, I don't plan to purchase this product.

Good results, doesn't dry out skin
Sampled

I'm nervous to give great reviews on this because I'm still not sure about the results. It diminishes blemishes but I don't notice much more than that. I doubt I'll purchase it because I own another similar product that works much better for me (Truth Serum) but if you want something that is good for breakouts but doesn''t dry out your skin then definitely consider this. Normally I would think something this strong would dry out my skin but it didn't, which is pretty awesome.

hmmm

easy to use and has a nice texture and pleasant enough scent! However the sample size was not big enough for me to know if it's actually doing anything!

Amazing- Houdini Style
Sampled

This product is amazing. I put it on a red bump that I had on my face. I left it overnight and when I woke up in the morning it was barely noticeable. I recommend this product for everyone, it's always nice just to have something when you want to get rid of imperfections overnight!

Didn't seem terribly effective
Sampled

Perhaps because the sample size was too small for an extended time trial, I didn't feel like this product worked. I used it for a couple weeks and did not see much difference, even on places where I spot-treated.

Tough to tell...
Sampled

I am not sure I can write a fair review because I have a spot that I need a long-term solution for. I will say that i like the texture and the packaging of the full-size product seems to be ideal.

Not enough to see results
Sampled

The sample I received in my birchbox was tiny, so could only use it 2-3 times. I didn't notice any results on the spots I placed it. However, I wish I had more sample to be able to try it a few more times. I don't think I will be purchasing.
