Super expensive but one one of my favorite brightening/dark spot removal products (I've tried too many to list!) 3 drops goes a longgg way so you won't have to repurchase often. Also this is the ONLY product that has made a difference in my pore size! I can't say much for lines/wrinkles as I don't have those concerns yet but overall amazing product!

OMG! HG material here! This has changed my skin so much! I use this along with the Alpha Beta peel pads and my skin looks like i literally have my facialist on speed dial! it left my skin luminescent, smooth and blemish free since i started using it and i have not seen results so quickly! I am very sensitive to any retinoid product... my skin literally rejects it and breaks out. I used Avene Triacneal for a few months with great success but i felt it left my skin so thin so i had to cut my use. I discovered this gem as a deluxe sample from sephora and beauty.com. it has been a month or so and i only used up half the sample! it didnt come with any cotton pads so i had to improvise but i think i was not so wasteful in my method that it extended my sample bottle (i have two and i have not touched my other one yet!!). I use it with EL Advanced night repair and I put 3-5 drops of EL ANR then 3-5 drops of this (or more at night) to make a mixed serum. The ANR makes it thicker so it is not runny thus eliminating my need to use cotton pads. I smooth this on day and night. I know in the long run buying both is pricey but i think they work synergistically so i am afraid to stop using them at the same time. My results are phenomenal... less breakouts.. my post pimple scars.. GONE! my skin has this pinkish blushy luminosity,,, it is hard to describe but i literally have given away all my heavy duty makeup and only use concealer for my under eye and the sides of my nose with light dusting of powder! It has made putting make up on so much better.... like on a clean canvas..i never have to go through the whole primer, heavy duty foundation then makeup fixing spray... it takes me 5-10 minutes for makeup now! I must add that i do use other products that help, like the Alpha Beta peel pads each night prior to this serum (i get the packet form and cut them in half to save money..) then moisturize with NIA24 Skin Strenghtening Complex. I also use both serums under my shiseido sunscreen :)

Price is the only reason I would very likely not buy this again. At $85, for what, an oz., it's outrageous. I got a .25 oz. free sample w/ a purchase. I have sensitive, oily, acne-prone, mature skin that is starting to wrinkle. Great combo. Anyway, I already use Rx tretinoin for acne, so I tried this only on nights I was giving my face a break from the Tretinoin. This is a clear, runny serum. I could use day or night, as it did not dry to a sticky or shiny finish, unlike several of the Paula Begoun products w/ BHA, HQ, etc. I was pleasantly surprised by how good this stuff was. It definitely exfoliated and brightened my skin, yet plumped and moisturized it at the same time. This is a VERY difficult combination result to achieve. Usually a product exfoliates and helps acne, but dries the skin, and usually anything hydrating tends to clog me. This hydrated, brightened, and not only did not clog pores, it de-clogged them, altho not as strongly as Rx tretinoin. Excellent product - I say if $ is no object, have at it.

This is my HG product, something that I could never, will never live without. I bought it to help fade acne scars and some freckles, but it has done so much more. It has basically cleared my acne. Those annoying little bumps that I used to get, I get no longer. I don't have to worry about huge breakouts anymore. This is THE BEST acne clearing product I have ever used, even though it is not specifically targeted for that.
It has also greatly helped the tone, texture, and radiancy of my skin. It is much smoother, more even toned, and my scars and freckles are quickly fading after only 2-3 months of use. I expect that everything will be gone by the time i am done with this bottle.
I use it every night, no matter what. I use about 5-6 drops, which my skin instantly soaks up. It is too greasy for me to use in the morning, because i have very oily skin.
This product is so worth the price. I would pay 100 plus bucks for it I love it so much.

This product is outstanding. In one week it has removed hyperpigmentation that a year and 2 bottles of Skinceuticals (CE ferulic and CF phloretin) could not make budge. amazing since i have used all the ingredients in this before, but not a formulation like this. i also haven't changed my sunscreen, so i am sure it was this. highly recommend

I was in search of a product with ferulic acid, but not an interpretation of Skinceuticals serums. I found Skinsceutical serums with ferulic acid ineffective. Ferulic Acid+Retinol sounded promising. The product did brighten the skin tone, improved texture of the skin and addressed redness and sun spots to a certain extent. It did not cause any breakouts and irritations. The results are visible, but not miraculous. I used this serum as a night treatment and wore SPF 45 or 50 sunscreen in the morning.
