Got a free sample of this - but probably won't buy it as it is so pricey. Meanwhile, this is a medium-to-thick cream that sinks in fairly quickly. Believe it or not - I am using it on my dry elbows.

I first received this product as a sample. I like it because it's not greasy and quickly absorbs into the skin. I have combo skin so I avoid anything that's too thick or greasy. It leaves my skin soft with a subtle glow. I use this product at night and the Kiehls Cryste Marine Moisturizing Cream during the day. I like both products and have since recommended them to my mom.

Love this, made my skin have a nice glow in general. When I stop using it, I do notice that my skin just isn't how i like it. Love the packaging too, very convenient pump.

I have heard so many great things about this, and my mom LOVES it, but when I used it, the very next day myface was absolutely exploding with pimples...i mean literally 50+ pimples overnight!!! Needless to say I have never used the product since.

I've been using this serum for a long time now and I must say it works. It's a lightweight gel, which I find works wonderfully due to it's consistency and texture. It sinks right into skin, leaving no stickiness or film. Any good moisturizer can be used over this, as this is a firming treatment, not a moisturizer, Skin looks firmer and rejuvenated, exactly as it's product description states. Loaded with vitamin C and botanicals found in the Mediterranean Sea, which is known to boost cell renewal. Does not interfere with make up application. which is a miracle. Forever a favorite in my aresenal........

Total do-nothing product for me. It doesn't do any damage and I don't know it's there, but I see no positive change, either.

i like it very much as it make my skin looks younger and fresher, it is suitable for the woman who is more than 35 years old. A very good and useful product.

I got a sample of this product...began trying it out. I use just a wee bit of it. I must say that for my 50 year old skin, this product works well. How? Well I have more of a 'glow'. In fact, a friend commented on my skin just today --noticed a big difference. Mind you, I also use other products (on top of this serum), but this seems to be making a contribution. Will I buy this one? Yes....if I can find it more cheaply on ebay!

This is supposed to work well for all skin types as a layering serum underneath the Cryste Marine Cream or on its own for oily skin to "firm and rejuvenate" the skin. I have combination skin, and my cheeks can get quite dry now that it is winter and I'm on Retin-A, but even still, I found this product too greasy.
I love serums and I like to sometimes explore new items when I get a little bored with my Vitamin C serum (La Roche Posay's Active C and Matrixyl solutions). I applied this a.m. and then waited for it to sink in before I applied my Anthelios spf 40. After 15 minutes, I still hadn't applied my spf b/c my skin felt like a coat of glycerin and silicone was sitting on it. At 20 minutes, I applied the sunscreen even though the Cryste Marine serum hadn't fully absorbed. By mid-afternoon, my face was an oil slick--greasy and thickly slippery.
Also applied some to my hands to see if it had the same finish and I found it left the same thick glycerin feel to them that refuses to absorb. Plus, there is no science behind their claims that "chryste marine" (a common algae) does anything for the skin.
