Hard to tell
Sampled

Since I already use a retinol product, it's difficult to tell how another one works by using a small sample. This is part of a skincare regimen that is cumulative. I will say that if it does work, that's a great price for a retinol product.

Still recovering
Sampled

I don't currently use any retinal in my daily skin routine so I was super excited to try this, especially in the giant bottle! How awesome! It's like a full size as a sample! But then I tried it. A tiny dab is enough and I smeared it on the fine lines on my eyes - I can't really use heavy stuff on the rest of my face because I'll breakout. For the next week+ I've combating dry, flaky, red, patchy areas around my eyes. It's so dry it's painful to put lotion on and I've had to sleep with coconut oil on my eyelids. COCONUT OIL. Slimy! Gross! So yeah. This product was terrible for me. It had the adverse effect I was hoping for and now I'm so bummed :(

sad the sample failed to pump
Sampled

my sample just simply didn't dispense the product. I tried everything but hitting it with a hammer. When I was able to get a little product out, it was too oily for my liking. I won't be buying this.

Not for me
Sampled

I am sure this product works well for some people, but it is not for me. My skin is too sensitive for this, and I am not overly concerned with wrinkles in the first place.

Disappointed
Sampled

I am looking for a product that can do exactly what this one claims. I had high hopes as it looks like a great product. However I struggled with the consistency of it. Very greasy and doesn't absorb well into the skin.

Too greasy!
Sampled

Went on really heavy. I think it is causing further breakouts. I have really oily skin, so that could be the issue as well.

Not effective for me
Sampled

I started using this product, excited about tightening up the skin around my eyes. I used it for 3 or 4 nights but had to stop due to increased sensitivity and burning where I put the product.

Too heavy
Sampled

I was pretty excited to try this, and I loved the design of the bottle, but this is not for me. It's very heavy feeling, and leaves an unpleasant feeling on my skin. Does this contain a bunch of silicone? I'm guessing it does, as things that feel like this usually give me breakouts and sure enough, I have a blemish on my face now. What a bummer.
