The first impression I had of this was that it is an excellent moisturizer replacement (especially in the summer). My face can get extremely oily so I don't use moisturizers; instead I spritz a little rosewater or face mist on and just a little of this serum and it moisturizes beautifully, leaving my face matte and balanced.
Hello Makeup Allyers!
So this is my fave skincare line and I've had such amazing results with them i couldn't imagine switching. I ordered the acne regimen because i have always had a problem with acne, set aside my issues with breakouts i had acne every day there wasn't a day that would go by that i didn't have a scar/scab from picking at a pimple or a large white head emerging from my chin or forehead. THEY WERE PAINFUL! I had tried everything from clean&clear to proactive the formulas would work for a week or two then my skin would get dry and flaky or i would break out in a rash on my chin/cheeks/forehead. then i would stop using it and my acne would come back full force! So anyway i made the switch i began using this regimen it two a few weeks to begin to see a difference in my face but it did.
I had been worried after the first week i didn't see any difference in my breakouts i consulted a dermatologist they instructed that it takes at least 20 days for your skin to get used to a new product. So back to the bathroom i went i tried to stick to the regimen using all products, using the cleanser morning and night then the mask and scrub twice a week using the moisturizer and toner in the morning and the serum and toner at night. The serum of which i would like to talk about first, it was great i hadn't used a serum before this so it was new territory, everyone is talking about the smell which it doesn't really have a "bad" smell its just a smell doesn't smell like carrot or really anything in particular.
I like the fact that it has the pump feature on it, makes it easier to only use a small amount. Its only meant to be used once a night before bed and so i did. My skin tone did get brighter which on the back of the bottles the serum is the only one that affected my skin tone. And yes i did see a difference.
Again i did use the regimen for two and half weeks, 3 weeks before other people saw a noticeable difference. They did not break my face out any more than it was the first two weeks and my breakouts have stopped i only get a few pimples here and there every other month from hormones.
I like the fact that this company is organic and they do have a return policy if the products don't work for you, i personally had a great experience which makes it so easy to talk about and i just wanted to share since i know it's hard to make a switch to a new skin product when all you want is a solution!
gross serum smells like a farm but like the pig pen awful sticky doesnt do anything litterally
i think this product makes my pimples worse. i get them on my chin and i just avoid pitting it there. will use it but would not repurchase.
I love Michael Todd true organics scrubs, cleansers and masks but not their moisturisers. I have had all of their skincare lines and the moisturisers are the worst.
I tried this and got acne all over my face and neck ( we are talking about big red whiteheads).
Also the smell of this product is like cat piss. Very strong and disgusting. The container is also huge. Way too big for whats in it.
I won't be repurchasing any of their moisturisers again. Of all the ones I've tried from Michael todd the citrus cream moisturiser is the best, but still not for me.
They have reformulated this product and it is terrible and caused small whiteheads all over my face. I am very acne prone and loved the old formula. This is very disappointing because it was my holy grail. You get a very very small amount of product for a ridiculous price but if was the only thing I had found that didn't break me out. Will not be purchasing this new product anymore. Btw, the reviews on their site are not accurate. Left a review over a week ago and its not posted. They pick and choose reviews or post their own to make their products look good. That's pitiful and will no longer be purchasing anything from them again.
Total crap. Doesn't absorb, breaks me out, has some menthol in it that irritates my eyes, the container is way too large for the tiny amount of product and takes up too much of my valuable bathroom space. I don't hate Michael Todd products, have a few, but this is just crap.Tried for a couple of weeks and it went to the bin.
I have had a bad allergic reaction to the Michael Todd intensive eye cream, which comes with the fancy applicator tip. My eyes became itchy and swelly and all puffy in abt 12 hrs. The eye cream never absorbed in the under eye area.
So goes for the Carrot serum, It never ever absorbs in my skin. It just makes a film on my skin, is sticky, and just sits there. I till now have not had a reaction with it, but i just cannot stand the way it feels on my face. So I can just use it at night. If I find a better serum for myself, I will never ever purchase this product again.
I really like this product. I use it along with the Michael Todd acne system. It absorbs fast, smells great & you can use it under your makeup!
This serum is great! I love how it adsorbs into my skin without leaving a film or sticky residue. It dries fairly quickly and doesn't sting or itch the skin. However the smell is an acquire taste and I still yet to acquire it. Nonetheless it is one of the best serums I have tried without it feeling heavy or sticky! I I face feels great after every use and I have truly seen an improvement in my skin. I love the fact that it is 75% organic.
