I was given this as a gift and used it faithfully for about 2 months. I thought it did make my skin softer and the texture around my eyes seemed nicer. ( I only used it around my eye area.) However after a few weeks I noticed that it gradually turned my skin yellow! I mean yellow to the point that my husband noticed and I was worried I was jaundice! Discontinued it and the yellow went away. Weird, hey? Anyway I am still on the hunt for a nice night serum that wont do that as night cream is always just too heavy on my blemish-prone skin.
I really want to like this product and I know so many people who LOVE this product. I have been using this for about two months now- I use this every night after cleasing my face and I have never skipped a night.
I feel that in the two months of using this, my skin has actually gotten worse- I dont know if it's this product or if it's the weather (very dry here right now in Toronto) but my skin is blothy, break out prone, dry and just dull and tired!
I so wish this worked for me. I have about 75% of the bottle left and this was expensive so I'm going to continue using this, but I probably won't be buying again.
I did however use lancome genefique which has a pretty low rating but it worked better for me (maybe I think it worked better for me because i used it in the summer time when my skin tends to look better- but weather aside, a product should deliver what it claims to and the "magic brown bottle" is doing absolutely nothing for me)
The best skincare product I've ever used! I have combination skin, clear but with a lot of hyperpigmentation and sun damage. This really evens out my skin tone and (maybe best of all) makes my pores look a lot smaller. I've been looking for ages for a product to do that! It really sinks in the skin and doesn't make it oily or greasy. I really don't like the price and also the smell is... not so greath. Nothing mayor but I had to take one lippy of for that. Neverteless, will defenitely be buying again!
I tried this product after the Estee Lauder Representative suggested this to be a great option for my problematic skin. I am 24 yrs old and suffer from oily/combination skin which has some acne scarring from my teenage years, although my skin has cleared up I am still very vulnerable to the odd breakout here and there. This product has done wonders in improving the quality and skin tone of my skin and I feel my scars have started to smooth out after a few weeks of usage. I only use a few drops over my face before bed and under my moisturizer in the mornings and considering this product is a serum, my face is left with that nice dewy feeling which is far from the usual grease bucket which i was previously used to! I would happily recommend this to anyone who is wishing to address similar issues as myself.
can i mix Copper peptide serum from skin biology into this, any feedback please appreciate it. Its that my copper serum is too thin and runny, and i need a nice jelly serumy like base, I thought this wold be a perfect match. Just want to make sure the ingredients in this agrees with super peptide serum.\\thanks
I got a little sample size of this off Amazon and it's amazing! I needed something to even up my skin tone and just give my skin a glow without causing zits and this is it. I use it under my CeraVe cream and my skin looks better than it has in a long time. No dry patches, smooth, my makeup looks amazing. Pleasant smell, but very spendy which is my only gripe.
I am fond of this product. Packaging is quite good. Dropper means you don't have to touch product so is fairly hygienic. Lasts a long time if used sparingly. Is quite expensive, but feels nice on the skin, smells good but not too scented. Can't say this has made my skin look hugely different, but it feels nice to apply and I use it almost every night as a serum. It's pleasant to use and hopefully good for my skin. I have repurchased and would consider doing so again in future after I have used up my other serums or there's an offer/I go to duty free. Would buy largest available e.g. 100ml. Product is pricey, no cheaper in USA than UK. Will continue to use until I find a better serum.... (if one exists?). Also used the Advanced Night Repair night eye cream which was also good. Have also tried Lancome Genifique and I prefer the EL one. Didn't think Genifique was special and it cost more too.
n.b. my mother (mid fifties) much prefers Genifique to the EL serum...
LOVE LOVE LOVE! I apply this product every night after cleansing with estee lauder cream cleanser & then chanel toning lotion. When i wake up the next morning my skintone is completely evened out, since sometimes I get pink in my cheeks. It helps my blemishes blend into my skin rather than having little red circles. It is perfect year round. In the winter it adds moisture & in the summer it controls oil & shine. It definitely neutralizes my skin type. I consider myself combination with oil in my t-zone, & since I'm 18, i still have problem areas. In the winter I get very dry, but if i use this every night, I never need to worry about even using a moisturizer, in the summer I'm very oily, but using this gives me a completely normal complexion! I will be using this product for the rest of my life. Cant wait to post pictures of my 90 year old self looking 52!
HG serum. Love this product. This product is marketed more for mature skin, but i am 26 and i love this. Whenever my skin is feeling dull and lackluster I always put this on my face ( generously).
When im batteling acne breakouts I always make sure to alternate between this and my perferrred acne treatment. This serum just seems to calm your skin and you wake up with dewy lovely skin.
LOVE THIS! I know it seems a bit expensive but honestly i would pay alot more of these kind of results.
I have started using this product again under the Estee Lauder Ultimate cream and it is fantastic! I also used it during very extensive radiation treatments (face/neck) and I was the only one who did not get the dark 'burn' mask. My doctor commented on this and I told her what I was using and she is now recommending it to patiens getting head and neck radiation treatments. As this product saw me through the worst of times, I know for sure that it will serve me well as time goes on.
