Seems good!
Sampled

I like the idea of this product and it's great to have handy in case you ever need some quick help. Sample was too small for me to tell for sure though.

Unimpressed

Firstly, this sample vial was nearly microscopic. I've got nothing against small samples (they are only samples, after all) but this vial was so tiny it caused a great deal of surprised laughter from everyone in the room when I opened this months' box. If a product is so remarkable that the sample only contains literally a few drops, I would expect it to have some properties just short of magical. I frankly didn't notice any effect at all other than a mild burning sensation where I dabbed it on.

Didn't seem to do much
Sampled

Didn't do much for my skin, too small of a sample to really give it a good try

Worked Well
Sampled

Need a better sample size, product seemed to be okay, I would have liked to have had more uses to make a decision about it.

Stubborn Imperfections
Sampled

I have a few brown spots and was super excited that this would make them go away or lighter at least. I really didn't notice much difference except moister skin. I do like that my skin was less dry and NOT breaking out. I wish I had a bigger sample lasting more than a week to see if it really works.

Better than expected
Sampled

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.
