I've always had naturally blemish free skin and Asian don't raisin, so I have genetics going for me, too. But at 36, I'm now really able to tell that my skin is changing much quicker now, than in my 20's. This product is my favorite to use every morning (and night, if I bother to wash my face). My complexion looks really good all the time now. The texture looks healthy and the hairline wrinkles around my eyes are being kept at bay. I wish it did just a little bit more to fade old scars and the beginning signs of spots. I love that a little of this product goes a long way - 75% of one pump is enough for my face. It goes on easy and I like to let it absorb in while I brush my teeth before putting on my face cream. I cry for my skin when I forget to pack this for overnight trips. This product is great for daily maintenance, not as a treatment, so you'll want to commit to adding this to your daily routine - pump makes it so easy but you'll actually see the results more quickly, too.

Great retinol
Sampled

I love the consistency of this serum. I used the whole sample and wanted to get more. The only reason I didn't is that I cannot find anywhere what the percentage of retinol is. So I bought a different brand at my dermatologists office. I hate to be using retinol without knowing how much.

This product is a must have...
Purchased

I saw dramatic results within the first week and the longer I use it the better my skin looks. It gives you that fresh new skin look everyday and even seems to improve tone and color.

Brighter skin

I have been using this amazing serum for several weeks now. I have definitely seen a difference in my skin. It's smoother , softer and I feel I look brighter and even feel like I have younger looking skin ! I love this product and after trying the sample , I am now ordering the full size ! I use it every night and will continue to forever as long as it keeps doing what it's doing for my skin !

Love it
SampledPurchased

Another sample I loved enough to buy a full size. It goes on smooth and weightless and gave me a nice glow with repeated use. I also like the container with a turn of the top the spout rises up and dispenses just the right amount of product.

Broke me out
Purchased

I loved the way this product felt on my skin. It's super smooth and seemed to be working until I started to break out. I do feel like it helped soften my fine lines in the short time I was able to use it and I was very impressed.

Very happy
Purchased

I am going to be 35 in May with very fair skin that I, unfortunately, tortured in tanning beds and out in the sun sans spf in my 20s. I was noticing deep lines in my forhead and t-zone as well as feathered lines around my eyes and marionette lines from nostril to mouth.
I needed something that was the real deal but without all the chemicals and harshness. After reading reviews here I went for it. I'm about 14 days in and have changed nothing in my exfoliating and skin care routine and already see a difference. I can't wait to see what 6 weeks does. My forehead lines and eye feathers are almost gone and others lightened. I'm putting it on my neck and chest now too.
I recommend this to my friends and, like any routine, you need to stick with it. It's not a magic wand, you need to do your part. I have not experienced any breakouts from this.

Has that "Certain something" that makes a great product
Purchased

I've tried a number of retinol creams and serums, and been happy with some fairly simple and inexpensive drugstore options. And then I got this as a mystery sample.

My skin is noticeably smoother, less red. I know my regular products have been making a difference, but this ... made *more* of a difference. So much so that I bought a full size and will continue to buy them.
