Not useable
Purchased

The packaging arrived with the pump broken. The only way to use it is to pull it out of the tube exposing the serum defeating the purpose of the product staying out of the sunlight. It doesn't pour without leaking into the tube since it wasn't made to pour. The few times I've messily used it I enjoyed the hydrating smoothing consistency, the scent, and the long lasting feel. Too bad I didn't get a real use out of it. I purchased without sampling as I have dark spots from adult onset acne

Didn't like it.

It's way too heavy for my oily skin and smells worse than olive oil. I definitely won't be buying nor recommending.

high hopes, no results :'(
Purchased

this oil/serum is super silky and absorbs all the way in so your skin is dry afterward, making it easy to apply other creams. I have not seen results at all, though. I had high hopes for this stuff because of the good reviews. sad, because it's not cheap. it kind of reminds me of olive oil, but without any smell to it. I've started using Neutrogena night wrinkle cream and saw results after just 1 application and it's half the price.

Great for moisturizing, no change in the appearance of wrinkles & dark spots
Purchased

After two months of twice a day application, I do not recommend this product. I purchased this in an attempt to combat my melasma, and I'm sadden to say it had absolutely no affect on that or my fine lines. It did, however, make my skin feel incredibly soft.

Not good for oily skin
Purchased

I tried to use this product only at night and it broke me out really bad. It might be because I have oily skin but it just did not work for me.

I don't have wrinkles but i do have dry, peeling skin due to a chemical peel. I use this in the morning under makeup and it helps tremendously! At night, I use it after washing my face and I can feel it working...cellular turn over rate speeds up for faster healing. Don't think I'd buy this otherwise. I can get something way cheaper and more potent elsewhere. It feels amazing, though! It's like an non-greasy oil that evaporates without alcohol!

I was not impressed by this sample. The bottle and packaging was nice and looks very professional. I had high expectations from this sample after seeing it. But one thing I noticed was when I put it on it would kinda clump up in some areas. I don't know if I was trying to put too much on possibly?

Not a good fit

I tried this product over the course of several nights and noticed no difference in appearance of fine lines. I liked the packaging, but otherwise this product didn't do anything for me.

I have sensitive skin so many this wasn't the best option to send me but I stopped using it after just a few days.
