Love this product. It makes my combo/dry skin super soft and supple. It also leaves a nice glow!
This is one of the skincare that I get really excited about. I love everything about it from the way my skin look in the morning, the natural lavendar scent that makes me feel cozy n pleasant at night going to bed, and even the midnight blue colored bottle. I first learn of this product from fuzkittie on youtube. I just adore this. Im so into serums n oils nowadays and find normal moisturizing creams n lotions to be too thick and they just sit on my face unlike this amazing oil. I literally look forward to my skincare routine at night everyday. hehe
O....o......this is not for me! I was really excited with the idea of trying this serum due to MUA reviews, but I have to admit it doesn't work well for me. I'm a 27 combination girl with a quite nice skin (thank God and my mother!!!!) but I'm a little obsessed with future wrinkles, I can't avoid it..... :(
so I decided to get it.
To be honest, I think itīs a great product and it gives a glowy finish to skin next morning, and it works well on fine lines, but I find I do get superficial pimples in areas I've never had spots, specially T-zone. I gave it to my boyfriend, yes, my boyfriend, ha ha, and he absolutely loves it. He told me flash effect over eye area itīs what he likes best though it's not recommended for it. So my overall is a 3 'cause it does not work for me but it does for my boyfriend!
UPDATE: After a few weeks, my boyfriend has been getting spots as well so he's finally leaving this serum too. I think Tocopherol is main reason.
I'm so disappointed this didn't work for me. I've heard wonderful things about it from many people, but it just did nothing for me. While it did make me break out around my temples, of all places, the real disappointment was the complete lack of payoff. My skin looked no different at all. Day after day, it was like I'd just patted water into my skin. I normally love squalane oil and Kiehls products so was expecting my skin to drink this up. FWIW, I have combination skin.
I urge you to try a sample before buying- my roommate broke out but my skin loves this stuff. I have combination skin- super oily between the eyebrows- semi oily forehead and nose- normal/dry everywhere else.
I received two samples of this and I LOVE it. The first sample lasted 2 1/2 weeks, the 2nd sample lasted 3 1/2 weeks. I admit I was scared at first because of the oily parts of my skin- but I found that when I stuck to the one-to-two drop recommendation per area- that's when I found the best results. It absorbs fairly quickly- and you have to resist the urge to pile on more as you would a normal moisturizer- I don't think it's meant to be used that way. I avoided using this in the oiliest part of my skin (right b/w the eyebrows) because it did feel like it was clogging my pores there.
I use this under the Kieh'ls Ultra Facial Moisturizer at night. After I wash my face in the morning- the combination of both products is making my skin very fresh- bright- and plump. I find I am using less oil sheets during the day (used to use 3 through out the day- now I use one in the middle of the day)- my makeup goes on so much smoother and the overall condition of my skin has definitely improved. I find that my daytime moisturizer (Clean and Clear dual action moisturizer) also works even better now.
I'm moved on to the full size now- and I don't think I can turn back.
O I want to love this product for I've heard rave reviews of it.
Unfortunately after two days of application I have had a breakout - somewhat similar descript to previous reviews: superficial pimples in areas of my skin I NEVER used to get spots. :(
My skin is pretty resilient, would not classify as sensitive. Thus I'd urge you to use a sample before making purchase!!!!
I received a sample of this, and was skeptical. I also received a sample of the toner and cleaner which we just "meh". Didn't do anything for my skin either way. But the serum is lovely. After I'm finished the serum I'm working on now, I may consider buying this.
The texture is extremely light and silky, not greasy at all. Application is quick and easy but it's not moisturizing enough for me. Did not wake up with better skin. Definitely prefer creams. Will not repurchase.
Oh my goodness, do I LOVE this product! It's worth every penny. Every night I put a few drops on the palms of my hands and gently pat into my face. It sinks in immedately and leaves no greasy feel. It has a very mild lavendar scent. The next morning my skin looks velvety and refreshed.
(If you go to the Kiehls stores a lot you can usually score a couple of samles of this--I once used a single sample for five days straight!)
I received a sample of this in a mini glass bottle when this product was first launched and the sample lasted FOREVER. I just bought a full size version after seeing pretty awesome results on my skin. I have normal/combo skin which gets drier in winter and last month I have some menstrual-related breakouts. I put this stuff on and overnight the breakouts had significantly calmed down. I also spent about 6 weeks in a very high altitude mountain town this winter and this stuff was a real skin saver up there. I never woke up feeling dry when I put this on at night. My skin feels smoothed and refreshed and kind of plumped. In the winter it's good for daily use but I noticed that in warmer weather, it seems to work better used a few times a week. I have both patted and rubbed this in and noticed no real difference between the techniques. I tend to use more like 4 drops in winter. Whatever is in this stuff, it works and the price for a serum is phenomenal. The tiny sample bottle lasted me for ages so I can only imagine how long the full size will last. Very well priced and effective product with good packaging. I'll definitely repurchase and recommend to friends. BTW, I use this over my Skyn Iceland night cream.
UPDATE: Bought a full size of this and it's amazing. With prolonged use (a few months now), my skin glows. I took it with me when I stayed in a high-elevation ski town this winter where it is EXTREMELY dry and this stuff saved my skin. If I had any flakes from skiing or windburn, my skin was perfect by the next morning. For $45 CDN, this is incredible and a great buy. I hope Kiehls never discontinues this.
