The smell

I put this on, but the smell was so awful I couldn't keep it on. I like trying these kinds of things but couldn't get past it.

Scary

Perhaps I received a really old sample. First off, I only used a drop or two on certain dark spots, and the smell of burnt rubber was unbelievably strong. Second, my face is now extremely red 24 hours later, just on the spots where I applied this serum. Either I got a bad batch, or this is not suitable for sensitive skin. I so regret using it.

Not for me

I really wanted to believe in it, but I honestly didn't notice a difference with this product-- bummer! I would have liked to believe...

This was supposed to do what?
Sampled

I still don't get it. I didn't notice anything after using this product. Maybe it's just me.

not effective
Sampled

Whenever I try a new skincare product, I use it on half my face so I can easily see results, and I saw none with this product. I'm using it twice daily, mixing it with my serum and applying it to the right side of my face and neck while applying just serum to the left side. My wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, skin tone & texture, radiance; they're was no difference between the treated and untreated sides of my face. I've been using it for 3 weeks, maybe not enough time to see results yet, but I've read reviews and many have stated they noticed improvement right away. I'll finish this sample (I have about 1/4 left) but $48 is too much to hope that a product will work eventually.

It's okay

I wasn't greatly impressed with this product. The sample was a little too small for me to see any long-term effects. I will say though that it smelled wonderful!

I hated this
Sampled

This stuff was so awful I only used it the once.
It goes on fine, but then I felt like I had a film on my face for quite a while. Some of it I could even feel peeling off every now and again. I only used a tiny pea drop amount too.

Ulgh.
Sampled

This product was nothing too special. Functions like any serum I've ever used, has a horrible smell, didn't do anything, and I don't have enough of it to see if it actually makes a difference over time. Bummer.
I like the mini dropper bottle, though. I'll keep it to put essential oil blends in.

If it brightened skin I would love it!
Sampled

The sample was too small to see if it actually brightened my skin after use. I wish I could have tested that - that would be very appealing to me!

Confused on why I needed to mix with a moisturizer
Sampled

Why would I need to mix with anything? Easier to just purchase a ready-made serum that doesn't require mixing with any moisturizer.
