This serum is part of a group of new skincare products by Estee Lauder, which are supposed to be for all skin types, and containing pomegranate plus tons of plant extracts, vitamins and minerals, etc etc. To me it is just a very good basic serum, much more lightweight than most serums I have tried. One pump onto the back of my hand showed that it is thinner than most serums, very watery, with a pleasant faint fruity scent. On the face, it spreads quickly and dries almost instantly. The box states that it "infuses skin's natural glow with a look that's vibrant, energized, simply amazing." I didn't get much of a glow with this, it dries invisibly and had no effect on the radiance of my skin. I'm not sure what 'energized' means in terms of skin health or appearance, but at least it felt nice! When it dries on the skin there is absolutely no stickiness at all, it feels great but had no tightening effect. It has no pore or line smoothing properties at all. It's not "amazing" but it is a very good superlight serum to use under moisturizer. I do think that it helped to boost the effect of the moisturizer I used over it, which is what serums are usually recommended for. Although I found this to be a wonderful light product to use in the Summer, I don't think I would buy it again. Perfectionist CP+ (the newest version, the serum) is far far better in terms of visible and lasting results. The ingredient list for this Nutritious serum is huge. With two pairs of reading glasses on, I will attempt to type it here, it's very hard to read the tiny list on the box, black letters printed on red. Here are the ingredients: Water, butylene glycol, methylgluceth-20, peg 75, glycereth-26, peg-8 dimethicone, oryza sativa (rice) bran extract, hydrolized soy protein, saccarromyces/zinc ferment extract, hydrolyzed yeast protein, passiflora alata (passionfruit) fruit extract, saccharomyces ferment lysate filtrate, sigesbeckia orientalis (St. Paul's Wort) extract, camellia sinensis (green tea) leaf extract, punical granattum (pomegranate) seed oil, saccharomyces/magnesium ferment extract, punica granatum (pomegranate) fruit juice, saccharomyces lysate extract, hydrolized corn protein, sodium hyaluronate, centella asiatica (hydrocotyl) extract, saccharomyces/calcium ferment extract, creatine, hydrolyzed wheat protein, dimethicone, prunus mume fruit extract, calluna vulgaris (heather) extract, pyrus malus (apple) fruit extract, oleth-3 phosphate, cyclopentasiloane, oleth-3, ethylhexylglycerin, dipropylene glycol, hydrogenated polyisobutene, oleth-5, tocopherylacetate, sucrose, caffeine, polysilicone-11, glycerin, pantethine, acetyl carnitine hcl, acetyl glucosamine, phytantriol, ppg-6 decyltetradeceth-30, fragrance (parfum), peg/ppg-20/20 dimethicone, adenosine phosphate, cyclodextrin, potassium carbomer, carbomer, ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, ethylbisiminomethylguaiacol manganese chloride, xhanthan gum, bht, disodium edta, phenoxyethanol, red33(CI 17200), yellow 5 (CI 19140),
