Not for me...

1

Reading the reviews I had high hopes for this product as I was looking into incorporating anti-aging to my skincare routine. My skin broke out badly from using this product and I never experienced this type of reaction before (and as a skincare lover I tried tons of products...). I'm guessing this has to be the retinol that my skin does not tolerate. I will not repurchase this product.

The packaging!

2

The product itself is not bad, I didn't see much difference with the use, but it's not sticky and doesn't irritate my skin. It's more an emulsion than a serum, but I like the feeling and the smell. But the packaging! After 1 week of use I had to start opening the bottle to get the product because the pump didn't work anymore. A nightmare every time... for a 60 pounds product I'd expect a working packaging at least. Upset and disappointed I won't buy it again.

Disappointing

1

I had really high hopes for this product and tried really hard to like it but I just don’t. After about half a bottle I have yet to see any difference in my skin and for £61 I’m going to have to pass. I’ve since switched to The Ordinarys 0.5% retinol for £5 and have seen more of a difference in 2 weeks than this did in months. Definitely save your money and try The Ordinarys retinols, they even have a 0.2% if you’re scared to try an actual retinol.

Give it a try!

So lets start with the negative part - the bottle. When you get to the last quarter of the bottle, the pump does not easily bring up the remaining product. So I think that's something that could be improved! Good news - I have acne prone skin which is also dry and sensitive. This serum did not break me out or cause my skin any irritation. I love how hydrated and plump my skin feels when I use this. This is not an acne curing product, however it really does improve the texture of your skin. I use it every morning and definitely see a noticeable difference in my skin on the lazier days that I don't. I know it's pricey, but a little goes a long way and this is the first serum in many years where I have actually noticed the benefit.

Don't use this product

1

I had high hopes for this product as normal retinol dries and irritates my skin. Unfortunately, the effect that this product had is worse than using retinol. As I have sensitive skin, I used this product sparingly and left a day between each application. However, this did nothing to alleviate the side effects of excessively itchy and hot skin which started peeling within a few days. Add to this, the smell which is quite strong on application but worse when the product gets on your bed linen when it becomes reminiscent of crisps or chips. I am very disappointed and would not purchase again or recommend. Sadly it is a very expensive failure.

If you're scared of retinol, try this

As I approach my late twenties I've started to notice a few frown lines creeping up on my forehead... but I want to save 'The Big R' for when I've exhausted every other option. This does exactly what it says on the bottle and has visibly smoothed the look of my forehead, minimised the visibility of my pores and helped fade blemishes... just like retinol does. I've not experienced any peeling or flaking; simply plump and even-toned skin!

My skin loves it

4

I have such a hard time finding products that don't irritate or break me out but this does neither and I'm so so happy with it. From the first use I knew it was going to be a winner. It seriously plumps my skin and my skin has felt healthier over time. It's also SIGNIFICANTLY reduced my acne scarring. Honestly I used to have pockmarks and now my cheeks are pretty much smooth. I love how the squalane is cruelty free and I'm so happy to find a non-sticky bakuchiol product. As others have said, I wish it was fragrance free but the particular formulation doesn't irritate my skin at all even so.

Not good for drier, older skin

1

Had high hopes for this product from most of the reviews - and loved the brand ethics etc, but my skin flaked and peeled every day since using this and it's not great! Even using a gentle scrub afterwards didn't stop it happening. Was expensive and a waste of money as I cannot use it.

goood

I like the product and how it feels on the skin however I haven't noticed any difference yet but I can't complain I just started to use it. One thing I don't like is the smell, I wish it was unscented. Overall great serum!

So impressed

5

I wanted to wait a few weeks before leaving a review and I can honestly say this product is brilliant. I just purchased my second bottle. Fine lines appear smoothed and skin texture is instantly improved. It's the perfect base before applying moisturiser. Going to become a continued favourite!
