I like this stuff. It doesn't have the really strong smell that most BB products have. I haven't noticed a huge difference in my skin, but I think it's more preventative than anything. It's lightweight and a little moisturizing. Didn't break me out and is apparently a good formula (according to Paula Begoun). Most antioxidant serums do strange things to my skin, so I feel like this is a good option.
First I was really desappointed because this serum made my skin dryer and dryer so I stopped. A week later I tried again and it was ok... Moisturzing good, make my skin look better (vitamine C I guess) and really tense the skin. It s quite pricey so I don't know if I 'll buy it again but I think it's a good serum that u should try (sorry my english is too small !!)
I changed my opinion this serum is cool but no so efficient for the price; so I won't buy it again
I think this is the only BB skincare product i like, when you apply it your skin feels much better, moisturised, very soft. absorbs very quick,
I have replaced this serum with anr as I found it to have stopped working for me.I have used this for just over 3 months now and am impresssed with this serum it leaves my skin looking more settled relaxed and just overall healthier looking and better it keeps pimples at bay and fine lines.I'm 26 in january and people think I'm around 23 maybe its good genes but I think this serum plays a big role will be buying it again as I find its worth the price and lasts a long time:)
I'm 20 and have combination skin - very oily t-zone, normal cheeks, and dry patches. I suffer from awful hormonal break outs on my chin and my skin is very sensative to most products.
i'm lucky i know.
I got this product out of sheer desperation but its the best money i have ever spent. I use 2 drops at night after cleansing my face and one in the morning before i apply make up.
After using it the first night i woke up and all of the spots, redness and scaring on my chin had reduced dramatically. My skin felt really soft and smooth too.
Its completely balanced out my skin, my make up lasts longer I don't get nasty flakey patches but best of all...
spots are virtually gone. I rarely get spots anywhere else on my face but when I do they stick around for a good few months but this stuff gets rid in a matter of days.
I could not recomend this highly enough.
I received a sample of this product and really like it. I cannot comment on its anti-aging properties or whether it fills in fine lines, but it is extremely moisturizing for my skin. I layer this under the Hydrating Intensive Night Cream and Extra Repair Moisturizing Balm SPF 25 and get smooth, moisturized skin throughout the day (I am on a topical retinoid cream and as a result my skin is very dry and flakey). It is pricey but worth it.
EDIT: I am subtracting two lippies from my rating. I think the Hydrating Intensive Night Cream and Extra Repair Moisturizing Balm SPF 25 were moisturizing my skin - the serum really was not doing much. I have recently subtracted it from my skin care routine and there is no difference - this is literally just water. I will not repurchase.
I was skeptical at first, but after having used this serum every morning for at least a month now, I am actually seeing very nice results. I am ultra-picky about serums and have tried so many high-end brands. I love that this is fragrance and color-free--my sensitive skin can't handle anything else. I only need about 2 drops to cover my face thoroughly--it spreads very easily. I notice my skin looks better overall--just more vibrant and youthful somehow, I can't pinpoint it. I will continue to finish my 1st bottle--the true test will be if I repurchase... as of now, a very strong possibility!
Like the reviewer below, I just like the "vibe" of this serum. I use it alone as a moisturizer at night and in the morning. I've been using it for about two or three weeks, and my skin is just better. It's smoother and less irritated. Most products wind up breaking me out or making my skin itch, so I wind up throwing them in the unused product drawer. This is something I actually use because I've seen an improvement. I also like that it gets rid of dry, flaky skin around my nose, which other moisturizers have not been able to do. For this reason, it also works well under foundation.
It does not make me oily during the day, and does not have that slimy serum feel. It's more water based, or so it seems.
There is no fragrance that I notice. I like the bottle and applicator. It has a dropper, and it only takes three drops for the face. I sometimes use an extra drop for my neck.
Overall, if you are looking for a serum that has a nice texture for combo/oily skin that smoothes and improves skin's appearance and works well under foundation, I highly recommend this. It is pricey, but it's a fairly large bottle, and you only use a bit at a time.
For those who like Paula Begoun, she gives this a best product rating.
I was introduced to BB Intensive Skin Supplement Serum at a makeover event a few weeks ago, and was inspired to purchase it that day. Glad I did. I do enjoy using it, feel it's better than EL's Advanced Night Repair, and my skin is mildly firmer, smoother, brighter. I just like the vibe on this product. And the price is right for this generous amount, though it's an investment. Apparently Dr. Oz likes this product as well. However for an dark-spot old blemish fader spot treatment, my pick is Bliss Peeling Groovy or the old Noxema skin cream in the blue jar. BB does have some other serums, but I have not yet tried them.
This is a great serum!!after using it twice daily for 3 weeks my skin is brighter,smoother and firmer.My skin has never looked better and only 2-3 drops are enough to cover the whole face.
I will certainly repurchase.
