”This is absolutely my favorite product!!! It really works!! I had super dry wrinkle prone skin all my life and after using tons of products gave up on the idea I could have smooth and glowy skin. But it happened thanks to this. It somehow peeled the dry layer of my skin, leaving it so smooth and glowy. I use it twice a day, in the PM following with Vit C 30% with silicone and NMF. First few uses gave me some redness but it went away once my skin got used to it. A+ product <3”

For four months, I have been pairing this with my sunscreen for daytime and with my Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% (still from The Ordinary) for nighttime and all I can say is, "'sun damage,' who? I don't know her." This makes a really good antioxidant cocktail with the said product and I apply it every time I want to glow with the Gods. (Make sure you still hide from the sun though because we stan photoprotection.)about 1 month ago
I thought my skin looked great and then I added Resveratrol!! Holy wow factor! I had never used it before and had no idea what I was in for. I love using it in conjunction with vitamin C. This is a permanent staple in my regimen! Smooth, soft, reduced pores. Closest I’ve ever been to glass skin!5 months ago
My go to anti-oxidant!!!!! I try to use this every day in the morning, but sometimes I can’t because I do 3 other serums before this one and then my sunscreen, and the issue with this is that it can leave your skin a little oily and you have to wait several minutes for it to reabsorb and you can put your makeup on. On days when I have more time I will use it, if not, use at nighttime mixed with vitamin C and you will wake up the next day with super bright skin!!5 months ago
you can use this on its own, but I always combine it with my vitamin C serum Niod Ethylated L-Ascorbic Acid 30 Network-NO COLOUR-30 ml and apply it at night to my face, neck and chest. Think of it like a supercharger for your vitamin C, when you blend them together it’s a strong antioxidant cocktail. I like to top it off with some retinol and a Squalane for hydration, so sometimes I’ll use the The Ordinary. Retinol 1% in Squalane after.5 months ago
My skin look good! This is just something I brought on a whim, and I'm glad I did. It applies smoothly. The texture and the feel of it is like a dry oil. I like to rub a little in my palms and message it into my skin. I like to use it alone or on top of the The Ordinary. Niacinamide 10% + Zinc. 1%, in the morning.6 months ago
Shame. My experience with this product is really, really bad. Note that I have oily skin, and am currently using prescription topical skincare for acne. I bought this alongside the TO Niacinamide serum and while I absolutely adored the latter, I hated this one. No matter how little the dose, the serum just won't sink into my skin. It just sits on top like a vandal, and pretty sure this contributed to redness and breakouts. Nopety nope nope NOPE. This has a similar texture to the Dear Klairs Vitamin C serum (which I also hated, unfortunately) but a tad thicker. I'm not too mad at it because it's a bit cheap. Shame.8 months ago
