Doesn't deliver on its promise
Purchased

I bought this serum because it seemed to be a dream come true: incredible ingredients (retinol, for anti-aging, reducing age spots, acne scars, redness, etc.), clinically tested, well-regarded brand, and, the BEST factor of all: you can use it on your eye area! It's non-irritating! It says so in the description and on the bottle! I don't have sensitive skin, have never had an issue with any product, and know/practice gentle eye-area dabbing. This is the first time in over 30 years that I have had a consistent reaction to a product. Not only is it irritating to the eye area, but that causes tears, which force me to gently tap a tissue on/around my eyes so often that I end up with dry eyes and tissue "dust"/particles on my lashes and eye area. That's the exact opposite of what using the product should do. It may be a home run for your face, a total grand slam in satisfying and delivering results on every other promise it makes, but if you want a product that you can use on your face, neck AND eye area, and it is a total fail for your eye area, then frankly, it's a total fail. You purchased it because it promised all three, and it doesn't deliver on that promise for all three.

Not good

This product made my eyes well shots. I don't know what's in it apparently there are some herbs or other Nashly found ingredients that produce allergens. That should be disclosed

Greasy

This product made my face feel very oily. It took forever for it to absorb. After 2 uses I developed a very bad cystic acne breakout on my jaw, which I haven't had happen in over a year so I have to imagine that it was caused by slathering oil all over my face right before bed. I probably should have taken a look at the ingredients before using.

Didn't love it
Sampled

I won't be buying this. Shortly after beginning to use I started breaking out really bad. Might just be me - but I wouldn't recommend.

Not into Anti-Wrinkles
Sampled

I'm not crazy about any product that advertises as Anti-wrinkles because it promotes insecurities. At least just call it a moisturizer that provides your skin with hydration and natural anti-dryness.

possibly allergic to product
Sampled

I think I am allergic to something in this product - the entire time I was using it my face was red and broken out, and immediately after I stopped using it, my skin starting to go back to normal. It was one of the worst breakouts of my adult life. This brand is generally good and safe, but this one was absolutely not for me.

Greasy, and not a product I need
Sampled

I'm fairly young, so I really have no need whatsoever for a wrinkle-repair serum. I tried it anyway, and I hated the way it felt on my skin. It was thick and goopy, and made my skin feel greasy for hours. And in a Texas summer, the last thing I need on my face is something heavy and greasy, that fixes a problem I don't have. The packaging was nice though.

Not relevant to me

I am 22, and I just don't feel like I need wrinkle cream rather than moisturizer. It just was not relevant to my needs. No thanks.

Bit greasy and sticky, smells gross. I really liked the packaging, though!
