It has no effects and the worst part is that it comes of in layers! Not something one can use with makeup
I have finished a bottle of this serum today so it is time to review it and I do not have any other words about it but praises.
It took me about 3-4 months to use up 30 ml bottle. The bottle is made of glass and unfortunately you cannot see through it which results in a nasty surprise when the product suddenly finishes hihi. Pump is very convenient and squirts out the right amount of product - I usually used 1.5 pumps for my face and neck. It is also able to squirt out the last bits of the serum too.
I was applying it also under my eyes and have not had any bad reaction over there but I would advise to be careful since it contains AHA and is fragranced (with some citrusy, fresh and pleasant smell) as well.
After a couple of weeks of use it gave me this lovely even toned skin, with smaller pores and maybe even perhaps some glow tough I suspect it was due to the lightreflective particles in the product. I might have been cheating a bit because I used this serum in the night (under a richer moisturiser as it is not moisturising enough for me on its own) and a Jurlique Herbal Recovery Gel as my day serum - together they work beauifully and I have had the best skin in months!
The only minus I was able to find was that my sunscreen (LRP Anthelios and Avene Emulsion both spf 50) was sometimes rolling when put on top of this serum when I used it during the day once or twice but usually a tiny bit of moisturiser applied before the sunscreen would help.
All in all it is a very effective drugstore product for someone in their mid 30s and it is already on my Spring shopping beauty list, which I cannot say about much more expensive product that I am currently using...
I am soooooo happy with this product, I have a dry sensitive skin that can be easily aggravated by most of the creams and brands. i use it once when i go to bed . it moisturizes my skin so much and it gives me a dewy look and health glow when i wake up at the morning. i do not need much of the serum and a little goes a long way. its almost a month now and my first bottle did not finish yet. the only downside to this product is that it is so expensive( 25 pounds).
This product has definitely worked for me!
I have been battling acne scars for awhile now since I've come by a horrible skin care regime that made me severely break out *cough* Dermalogica! *cough*.
But ever since I've tried this serum, my scars have gone from being super dark and obvious-through-thick-foundation, to light marks that can be completely covered by a light wash of powder!

But seriously, if you having trouble with scarring or pigmentation, definitely try this out.
Please spot test this product before use! I used it once and had a terrible reaction, my skin now feels almost sunburnt and I have little bumps across my nose and cheeks. Definitely won't be using again!
I am almost two weeks into using this product.
Product feel: Very light, pearlescent, silicon-y-feel to it. Seems slightly heavier than a standard serum but still lovely to use.
How my skin feels: I have sensitive skin so was wary at first but after a couple of days of relatively minor breakouts as my skin adjusted I am now happy with this product. My skin feels quite velvety-soft, now, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that it really does help to mask some blotchiness immediately after application.
Amount used: I have read that some people only use one pump worth per application but I need one pump per 'face section' but I have slightly drier skin.
Luminosity/blemish zapping: It gives my skin a slightly 'dewy' look, which is nice. I have yet to see how effective it is on banishing blemishes and darker spots so will post an update on this later.
Scent: Fresh and not at all overwhelming.
Packaging: Attractive and i love the glass bottle - very stylish and a pleasure to use. The pump is easy to operate and has a shut-off for traveling.
I'll keep using it as it's quite luxurious and generally a pleasure to use. :)
I got this in Asda on offer at £15. I'm always looking into products to look after my skin and thought this would be great as my skin s looking a but dull, regardless of my exfoliating and moisturising regime! I use this of a night, and ive only used it twice but I have to say I like it. I like the smoothness, and the slight luminosity it gives me the next morning!
I can't comment on whether this breaks me out or not yet, so will update this in a month or so!
I really like this product. I'm in my 40's and have uneven skin pigment from sunbathing in my youth. It has been a week and so far my skin seems more even in tone. I'm sure it will take much longer for the older spots to leave. The scent is a bit strong for me,but easy to overcome. I'd buy it again.
i like this product, i have only been using it for a few days, but it is starting to feel like my skin is improving, i have freckles on my nose and forehead, i want to get rid of them, and i will definitely keep using this and hopefully over time, in a month or so they will begin to fade, :)
I generally don't use L'Oreal products but just tried a sample and felt compelled to post my experience, albeit a brief one. Got a sample, tried it out, 10 minutes later my skin felt like it was beginning to molt and it was stinging. Ran upstairs to rewash my face and this crap was just sitting on my skin like a slimy, shiny, toxic film. I think this is quite possibly the worst product I have ever tried. And just further confirmation that my skin hates all things L'Oreal. Too bad because it had a pleasant scent.
