Was suprised
Sampled

Had a bad blemish when I received this, I dabbed a dot on it and in 2 days it was gone. Not enough of a sample to give a long term test, but I like what I saw.

Lets see if it works
Sampled

I don't mind spending the $$ on skin care- however if I don't think it is effective- and I buy it from Sephora- I can return it. The sample size was not big enough

Sample Size
Sampled

The sample size is really disappointing but otherwise it worked okay. I would appreciate a bigger sample to actually test its effectiveness over the course of a bit longer time.

Small sample
Sampled

As others have said, the size is a little small especially to see long term effects. But it did take some redness and swelling out of some bumps that I had that normally would take another day or two to see results in and I consistently put it on some of my larger pores and it seemed to help shrink them.

Hmmm
Sampled

Well I would be really impressed if this product does all that it claims to. I have large pores- anything that minimizes them is tops in my book. The sample size is small- so although I have tried it I can't say how effective it would be after a week or so of use. Packaging maybe needs some changing...thought it was a perfume sample and almost tossed it.

No noticeable effect
Sampled

I used this for 6 days on one side of my face (sounds weird, I know, but that's how I test all skin products) and didn't see any difference in my skin. Maybe it just takes longer, but the sample was too small and ran out.

Placebo Effect
Sampled

I have a history of acne and blackheads, so a miracle night serum that promises to clear it all up over night (over several nights) is exactly the kind of product I love and crave.

However, I didn't feel that it was very effective. The sample size was very small, so perhaps if I had more product to test the results would have been different. As it stands I used it every night for 5 days and say no effect. Therefore I give it a thumbs down.

The jury is still out...
Sampled

...but so far, I like this product. I've been using it as a spot treatment. While I didn't get the overnight results I was hoping for, this product hasn't irritated my sensitive skin despite the high BHA concentration. I was expecting this to be more of an alcohol-based gel rather than a light oil.

I have used this three times and really cannot see a difference. I believe the sample is to small to really give an accurate review.
