I didn't have high hopes for this product, because it is quite greasy. I used it on a few stubborn zits, and it seems to have done a good job drying them out, and preventing them from growing and getting worse.

Sweet Serum!
Sampled

As someone who struggles with oily and acne-prone, I was somewhat concerned that this serum would be a bit too oily for my skin, but after three nights of using it, there was a noticeable difference in my complexion without being too dry or too oily. I am definitely a fan of this blemish fighter!

Not impressed
Sampled

This sample conveniently came in my Birchbox when I had a large breakout. I tried this on it and there was not a change. Not impressed.

It ok
Sampled

Not sure of this products overall effectiveness just yet, the sample wasnt too large so i think its hard to tell how good it will be, also it seems oily so that kinda scared me to put too much on my face as it gets oily easily, thanks!

Small sample
Sampled

This seems like a very good product, but because of the really small size of the sample, it's hard to really get a sense of how well it works.

Works for my blackheads/large pores
Sampled

Like most people have said, the sample was very small, and if you want to use it on your entire face like I did, you could only get about 3 uses. The first night I put it just on 3-4 pimples that were just beginning to heal. Didn't notice a huge difference the next morning. The next evening I applied a small amount on my entire face. When my husband came home about 20 minutes later he said, " you look really pretty. Your skin looks really clear." ...so I guess it works! I noticed that my pores looked much better after using this.

Good product
Sampled

I don't have much acne, so this didn't really get used for a while. But during a stressful week, I had a spot show up and i put this on overnight and it worked perfectly! Does just what I was hoping and really made my blemish unnoticeable overnight

This stuff is amazing
Sampled

I don't have great skin (acne scars, blemishes) and this made a big difference. I could see a difference the next day and after 2-3 days my husband asked what I was doing differently because there was such a big change.

Not sure, but seems good
Sampled

It was hard to make an assessment based on this small sample, but I understand that, based on its cost, the sample couldn't be much bigger. I used this several times, applying it to a small bump I've had for years on my chin, and a small red mark on my forehead. Although neither disappeared, both do seem somewhat reduced after about 5 applications. I don't think I'm imagining this, but am not absolutely sure. So thanks for the sample, just not sure I can definitely recommend after this limited use.
