Wanted it to work
Sampled

I've tried using this product for many days now and I notice nothing different. Oh how I wanted it to work. Too bad for me.

Works nicely
Sampled

I used the sample for 3 nights in a row, on my crow's feet and some stubborn spots, and noticed a difference. It went on smoothly and nicely. This will probably be my next BB purchase and it will be great to have on hand for stubborn blemishes.

Unsure
Sampled

I suffer not only from hormonal acne but cystic and dietary as well. UGH!! I was kind of excited to try this sample out, but not entirely sure it made that much of a difference. Because you usually have to use these kinds of products for at least a couple of weeks to notice a difference, I don't think there was enough to determine whether it did anything.

I THINK I love this...
Sampled

I have been using the sample as directed (at night) only on my Tzone to see if it helps get rid of blackheads/clogged pores. I think it is working, but the sample size was so small, I wasn't able to try it on other problem areas it claims to help. Most perfume samples come in a size larger than this!

The sample was too small to get a good idea of how the product works. I used it several times and I see that it is somewhat effective but if the sample size was bigger I would be able to tell better how effective it is.

AWESOME.
Sampled

I have pretty good skin, its somewhat dry and very sensitive to anything that dries it out further. I really loved this stuff. I used it on my nose, chin, and forehead. Dried out my skin a little (i used it every night on top of moisturizer) but it got rid of a lot of my blackheads that are sealed underneath skin, which is impossible to do. I might actually buy this stuff!

Hard to Say
Sampled

I, like so many other reviewers, thought that this sample was too small to be able to truly test it out. I did use it as a spot treatment since there wasn't much to test and while I think it has potential, I'm not sure that I'd pay the price to try more.

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.
