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.

Too Soon to Tell
Sampled

I gave this sample a try but simply couldn't tell whether it would have a long-term result. I can say that the formula was kind to my skin and didn't cause any irritation or problems, but I'd need to use it for a longer period of time to know whether it would truly tackle some skin flaws.

small sample, but I liked the results

I wasn't expecting much result, if any, from this sample because it normally takes weeks to see results for products with daily use. However, I did notice improvement with redness from recent breakout.

I think it's working!

Since so many of the reviews here are from a sample, it's almost as informative as if no one wrote a review. Products like these take time to work and a sample size for a week won't cut it. Since this product claims to work on more than just acne marks but scars too, I figured it was worth a shot. I've been using it for about a month now and I really do feel like my red post-acne marks, my scars and enlarged pores are faded. I feel like my skin is becoming smoother and it feels kind of rejuvenated when I wake up in the morning. I've also been blessed (cursed?) with skin that can be super oily and dry and flaky at the same time and this doesn't dry out my skin at all. I put it on after I wash my face before bed and my skin doesn't feel tight or super greasy at all. The only thing I don't like is entirely in the packaging. The tiny pump is a little herky-jerky so it's hard to just get out a little bit.
