WARNING, if you have dry or combination skin do not buy this product. It took me 4 weeks to figure out this was the new item in my skincare routine that was slowly sucking out every drop of moisture out of my face. After putting this on, your skin feels tighter and tighter throughout the day until your face feels itchy and oily at the same time because your face is trying to fight the serum. After 4 weeks of use, my face was so dry it started to hurt. I'm not sure that everyone will react the way that I have but I had NO IDEA there was alcohol in this. I would not have bought it otherwise. This was sold to me at a spa to help intensely moisturize my face in the winter, big mistake. I would NEVER ever buy this product ever again.

wanted to love this. felt great going on - but def not rich feeling. but finally realized that it was drying my skin out like crazy. it might very well work on some women - doubt it - but if you're skin is dry,keep walking.

After using it religiously for 3 months, I came to the conclusion that tourmaline charging a cream or fluid won't add any benefits to the cosmetic. I prefer some old fashioned nourishing oils or extracts.

I love this stuff. I don't use it all the time because its sort of expensive. And there for a while, I think it may have been discontinued. I had difficulty locating it. Anyhow, I apply to clean skin and give it a minute or two before I use anything else. I can imediately feel my skin tighten. Honestly, when I use this I don't see a need for a primer. It has a slightly sticky consistency once its dry. I like this one, and I'll buy it again, but I'm not sure the tourmaline is the ingredient that produces the results I like from this product.

This product did notting to my skin. The second ingredient in this product is Alcohol, so obviously that is not good to be putting on your skin, especially if you have dry, or you use this product for anti - aging benefits. Actually it is never good to apply any amount of alcohol to your skin, even if you have oil control problems or acne. This product is very overpriced if alcohol is listed as the second ingredient, and I feel for the people who have been misleaded by this product, thinking that it is some how improving their skin condition.

Yuck. This serum made my skin breakout every single time I used it. Horrible. I finally returned it to the store. I use the "Aveda Botanical Kinetics Hydrating Lotion" everyday and I absolutely love that. But this serum was a definite no-no for my skin.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Sensitive, Fair, Warm Hair: Black, Straight, Fine Eyes: Blue
Absolutely amazing product. I have never had a lot of problems with my skin but sometimes I get clogged pores on my chin and around my nose. I tried this product and within a couple weeks I noticed a HUGE difference. My clogged pores are going away. I have struggling since I was a teenager to get rid of that. It's amazing.
It is a bit pricey, but the reason for that is because it's a concentrated serum. A little goes a long way.
I just use a little in the morning before I moisturize.
Definitely recommend :)

Probably the product that makes the most amazing difference in my whole skincare/make up routine (and i use lots of products!) I use this every day, then follow with the aveda hydrating lotion. My skin has never looked or felt better since switching all my skincare to aveda. I am so happy i did. This product gives me the most amazing glow and skin texture really love it

This stuff is amazing! I love it and will definitely be repurchasing it. I know it's expensive but it's full of so many antioxidants that it's worth it. I like that I can use this night or day and it makes my skin very glowy and radiant. I have also found that since using this (combined with the rest of my skincare), I break out a lot less and I find that my skin is more even in overall tone. I love the consistency of this and you really only need one tiny pump for your entire face. I have mine for 8 months and I will probably need to repurchase in a month or so. This stuff lasts! I love it and it's great for all skin types. I just wish it wasn't in a glass bottle.

I am surprised at how much I love this product. Just two small drops covers your whole face, so although it isn't cheap, it should last a long time. The texture is at first a little odd...sort of slippery like egg whites...but it quickly sinks in to a matte finish. I have noticed a huge difference in the texture and softness of my skin, and my sunscreen applies so much smoother when layered over this product. Definitely improves the clarity of my skin. I also notice that my face doesn't get shiny over the course of the day when I use this product. The light fresh Aveda smell makes this a pleasure to use and the pump packaging is nice too.
I use this under my sunscreen in the morning and under my night moisturizer on evenings I don't use Renova. I love the way my skin feels since using this product and how it makes a nice, light, slightly mattifying primer before sunscreen. I don't wear foundation but I would imagine this would make a nicer primer before putting that on too.
Will definitely repurchase, this has become a must have in my skin care routine.

Contrary to what some others say, this product greatly improved the appearance of my skin. It helped absorb the oil in my t-zone which was a huge concern for me. After applying, I feel confident in not even wearing foundation or concealer. It feels a bit cool and thick or even sticky, but it dries within seconds and gives you an amazing soft finish, especially within the cheek region. I love this product, it's quite expensive though.

LOVE THIS SERUM! It tightens my pores, gives me a nice glow, and it is a nice prep for makeup applications. Definitely the best product from the tourmaline line.
It is a bit pricey. I was fortunate enough to get a student discount on it for going to an Aveda Institute, but since I've graduated I haven't had the expenses to buy this again, but when I do ... definitely need more of this serum.

I think this masque is most impactful if not using the line. If you're using the products already, you won't see huge results. It's more of a small boost, if that makes sense. It's great at just giving skin an all over brightening or glow if that makes sense.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
I liked this it is oil free which is great for my oily/ prone to ance skin I think its a great pick me up! I didnt think got better with use but its great before a night out as it brightners and makes your skin glow straight away. Am using something else at the moment but I would buy this again!

I've been using this for a year or 2 and I use this with the tourmaline lotion with SPF under my foundation. It took a bit to get used to putting something on my face besides lotion but I can't live without it.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Very Oily, Medium Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
didn't do anything that it was supposed to do....used it consistently for 3 months...will not buy again...
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Olive Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I have been using this product consistently for about 4 months. This does nothing for my skin. Aveda says that this is supposed to increase smoothness, reduce pore size and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. I didn't notice any of that. In fact, my pores look larger and my skin tone uneven whenever I use this. I will not repurchase.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I know that its not for brightening, but it evened out my skin tone and made me feel moisturized and not too greasy, check it out
Age: 36-43 Skin: Normal, Fair Hair: Brown Eyes: Blue
This product did not do much for me, although I cannot say anything really bad about it. It just did not impress me. It takes some time to get used to the fact that it is a bit sticky.
Age: Unknown Skin: Combination Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
I bought this out of desperation during a dreary winter day. My skin was in that awful end-of-winter stage, when it looks dry, dull and tired.
I've been using it twice a day, under my moisturizer, and I've noticed a huge difference! My skin is much more even and bright.
The product is a little strange at first — it's a liquid, but it has a slightly sticky, gluey consistency. That took some getting used to.
Aveda's website says tourmaline is a mineral that boosts skin's "energy." I don't know if it's the mineral, the sage (which calms redness) or the anti-oxidants, but my skin is happy and glowing!
It is pretty pricey ($37 for one fl. oz), but I think it's worth it. I've been so impressed with the results, I'd absolutely buy again.
