LOVE. This product has cleared my skin up, bigtime. I'm 31 years old and 35 weeks pregnant and during my second trimester, my skin freaked the #$@& out on me - dry/eczema patches, pimples, blotches...just bad. I bought this on sale to try because I love TBS in general and thought maybe this would help the eczema more than the pure argan oil I had been using. I can't say enough how much I love this stuff. I can't use it alone as a sole moisturizer, but it's a serum so it's not meant for solo duty anyway. I use this with the Nutriganics Smoothing Day Cream over it and my skin has gone from nightmarish to silky smooth and CLEAR! The transformation literally took less than a week and I don't think I've had ONE skin complaint since. I'm just about finishing up the first bottle of this and reordered another one last night along with the night cream to try out (was previously using this with the Vit E cream at night). So basically this stuff not only cleared me up, it did decrease the fine lines around my eyes, it controlled the eczema, eliminated blotches, it also moisturizes nicely (under another product, for me) and is completely invisible - no stickiness or greasiness at ALL. HG product for sure, this and the day cream. We'll see about the night cream! continued >>
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this serum. I bought this on black Friday when they had a 3/$30 promotion and I figured why not buy their most expensive products and try them. This is probably my most favorite item I have gotten at TBS hands down! This was the first face serum I have ever used and bought and I love the way it applies to the skin. It just glides on so silky and sinks right into your skin without leaving a greasy or sticky film like some serums I have sampled at ULTA and Sephora. The trick is to spread it on lightly. The only negative thing I would say about this product is the applicator...it never seems to pick up enough of the liquid in the dropper, which means I have to use the dropper twice to cover my entire face. The smell is very pleasant and refreshing. I use this after cleansing and toning my face, but before a moisturizer and my skin seems to be much healthier and evened out which I think is due to the added moisture this serums sinks into your skin. The bottle lasted me 4 months and I will repurchase another bottle the next time some sort of sale comes around, which is quite often at TBS!
I got this when it first came out. It was on promotional price, so I decided an extra serum wouldn't hurt. I dunno my skin got smoother, but it doesn't irritate/breakout my skin in any way and that's a big plus already. The serum is very light and has a cooling effect when applied. There is no smell to it, which I love. It glides on your skin smoothly. I have dry skin and it absorbs within seconds. I need to work fast to get the product all over my face. The packaging is awesome - glass bottle with a dropper. I would definitely buy it again when there is a promotion going on, which Body Shop have often.
-I bought this item while on promotion so I bought 2 of them after trying them on my hand at the store.
-It was a slippery smooth texture and it made my skin feel super smooth on my hand. It is non-sticky, instantly absorbs into the skin, and lightweight. I leaves the skin looking semi-matte and not greasy or oily.
-I am a teenager and I bought it as an extra step in my skincare routine. I wanted a concentrate to help moisturize my skin and prevent dehydration and lines from appearing on my face. I have smile lines around my nose and I hate them. I smile and laugh very often so I feel like I needed a "anti-aging" serum to smooth out those lines.
-The product itself does not function to improve any signs of aging or wrinkles. It smooths the skin's texture and allows a moisturizer to sink in better. When I wake up, I notice my skin is brighter, smoother, and definitely more hydrated.
-I wear it alone or under a moisturizer and it works well with my very acne-prone combo skin type.
- No breakouts or reactions.
-Would not repurchase because I don't think it justifies the price of $30 CAD. But if it's on sale I might pick this up or try something else.
-Packaging is fantastic BTW. I love the dropper and the compact size. It is sturdy (glass bottle) but lightweight.
I've been using this product now for about a week and have to say it's definetly one of my favorite skincare items. I also use the Nutriganics Smoothing Serum a few times a week as well with this just to give my skin an extra boost.
One of the things I love about this product is that it feels so cool and soothing on the skin. It is a clear gel like serum with a refreshing barely noticeable herbal scent.
It certainly doesn't tingle or burn. They suggest you apply this before your moisturizer and let it soak in before following with your moisturizer. You are supposed to use 2-3 drops, but I find one drop is enough for the face. This will not leave a greasy residue on your face. Big bonus if you are like me with oily/combo skin but for someone with dry/flaky skin you probably won't find the moisturizing benefits all that great.
The real beauty of this product is that it's mainly all natural ingredients, 99% in fact!. The list of ingredients is very lengthy but they are recognizable ones. I don't feel like I'm putting a fake and synthetic serum on my face. The main ingredients are beech bud extract and plant stem cells from criste-marine. No silicones, no parabens. The ingredients claim to moisturize your skin, smoothe and enhance surface skin condition.
I've been using this religiously morning and night. I've noticed my skin has more of a glow, it looks more even and more moisturized. I had pretty clear skin to begin with but I find this makes my skin look like I went for a mini facial and just enhances my skin tone. It isn't something that will make you look youthful if you are in the advanced stages of aging. Keep in mind this Nutriganics line is meant for people who are starting to see the first signs of aging and want to correct things from the start. Probably best to start it in your 20's and early 30's.
So for all you oily/combo skin girls that want skin that glows and you want to begin fighting early signs of aging, it's definetly worth going out and getting some of this!
