When I first bought this I was so excited, but after using it for a couple weeks and no changes, I threw it in my makeup box and forgot about it. A few months ago I found it again and gave it another try. I did notice an improvement in the texture of my skin that I hadn't the first time, and I noticed a more radiant complexion although my boyfriend didn't notice a difference. After a while though, it stopped having any real benefit to my skin and it went back into the box.
This product is too expensive for the benefit and although the frosted glass bottle is pretty, the fluid gets stuck in the pump and dries to a gross yellowish brown flaky substance. I would not repurchase.

The product just didn't do too much for me. It sort of just sat on my skin and if it made me glow, it was an oily kind of a glow as opposed to a healthy one.

I received a sample of this product as part of a swap, and now I'm a convert! I noticed a difference in my complexion right away. The texture of my skin is smoother, the laugh lines near my eyes are no longer visible, and my scars and acne marks have faded quite a bit. I no longer have to wear as much foundation or concealor, and am looking forward to the day when I can wear just powder again.
I recently swapped for a full-sized bottle, and when I run out I will definitely purchase a new one! This is my new skincare HG!

Umm..had a facial at an Aveda salon and it felt wonderful and she recommended this product..It is just okay. I am 33 with combo skin and a chin that is acne and blackhead prone..Makes your skin softer but after 6 weeks of use that is all I noticed. Probably better for more younger skin..Just not worth the money..

This product did give my skin a nice glow, but if it got anywhere near my cheeks, I would develop a red, itchy rash. It also does nothing to minimize or clear pores, which is something I need from a product if the only place I can use it is my t-zone. I'm not going to rate it too low because it kind of does what it says, but it definitely isn't for sensitive skin. I'm going back to DERMAdoctor Picture Porefect.

This is my favorite AVEDA face product. I don't really use their skincare line (Dr. Hauschka works better for me) but this serum gives face a lovely glow, doesn't leave it sticky or shiny, and definately did not seem to cause any break-outs. (I believe that it IS oil-free) I would imagine that it would work under any foundation or moisturizer,but I use Aveda Inner-light tinted moisture. Whenever I pair the two together, I get all kinds of compliments about how great my skin looks. Sometimes I use the innerlight translucent powder, especially in the summer to get rid of any potential shine. Anyway, the point of my rambling is that it works great with or without other Aveda products no matter what your skin type (mine is sensitive/combo/a little acne prone) I would highly recommend using before special occasions for when you want to look your best. It works instantly, but results mildly intensify when used regularly. I'm actually taking a break from this product now to try an all-natural vitamin C serum, but I will definately use it and purchase it again and again!

I saw on the Tyra Banks Show(the skincare show) that you should always give a product at least 6 months to rate it’s effectiveness before you either switch or give up…and I think it has been approximately 7 months now that I have been using Aveda’s face serum…which my skincare specialist swears by - but between me and you, I really don’t see any benefits or difference.

Love this stuff. It absorbs very quickly and makes my skin feel tight but hydrated. I'm a big fan of the entire Aveda Tourmaline line. I've had great results with all of them, and they work great in conjunction with one another, too. Although they are each great on their own, too. I've just been using the Radiance Fluid at night, but I think I'm going to start using it morning and night since I've had such great results with using it at night. I've been using Guerlain's Pure Radiance as my makeup primer (and I also LOVE that stuff), but I'm going to start using this some, too, to see what results I get.

Works great in conjunction with the other Tourmaline products. Using this 2 times a day with the cleanser, and moisturizer I have been extremely pleased with the results--much smoother skin, more even texture.

Wooow, this stuff really works! I bought it a while ago and dismissed it right away because I broke out. But i quit smoking and this has made my skin less sensitive-so I gave it another shot. And seriously, my skin has done a turnaround! It's only been about a week, but already the texture of my skin has improved dramatically! I am starting to glow, and I have had terrible skin for years! I use this at night, one pump will do you, and wow. Very impressed, will repurchase when I need to.

Wow. This product is the reason why I don't have to wear foundation or powder! I LOVE it! It really gives you skin an amazing glow and is so easy to use, it just glides right onto your skin : ). I use this every morning and while I wait for this to fully absorbe into my skin, I moisturize and blowdry my hair. After doing the above mentioned, I seal this in with moisturizer. Amazing! Can't get enough! Although my mom uses the Shiseido version of this, not fully sure what it's called, and she raves about that too, this one works for me : )

The fluid texture applies easily and dries very quickly. It soaks in well and immediately makes my skin feel fresh and pores feel closed and tight. It brightened my skin over six months of use and improved the flaky texture I battle with Colorado winters. I like this alone on oily days, or under a very light moisturizer when my skin is on the dry side. Makeup applies easily over this product.

One of my must have product now. I've been using it for about 2 months and I can see a big difference in my skin quality. For the first week, I can see that it helps smooth out my skin texture. I have porous looking skin before this, mainly on the forehead and around the nose area. My skin is combination and can get oily in the summer. This balance out my skin and helped making it look fresh longer. I don't have oily skin after 3 hours anymore. After the second week, my skin look fresh all day. No over oil production or slick anywhere on the face anymore. I don't know what Tourmaline really do, but with the rest of the ingredients, I can tell it's very benefitical, and I bought it for those ingredients. My skin really likes greentea and greentea is one of the top ingredients. I haven't have any breakout from this product and this product also calm my skin too. More even tone, smoother looking skin [my pores aren't obvious anymore, yay!], no more greasy face, and few less breakouts. I have some blemish marks and this help speed up the recovery. My skin doesn't get dry out or oily so easily like before, it feels like I have normal skin. It help my problem skin so much. I don't even wear foundation anymore because this make my skin look so good! I use this with Aveda Tourmaline Charged Masque. They are wonderful together. I haven't try the Tourmaline creme yet though.

A little on the expensive side but it really works. I stopped using for a while in favor of less expensive alternatives. Little by little, my skin lost its glow. If you don't over-do it the small bottle will last. One pump which produces a chocolate chip size of produce will do your whole face. You can even do away with your exfoliant. So, maybe it is a good value after all.

This product has worked wonders for my skin. I noticed results in two weeks. I have far less break outs. I will purchase this product again.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
Ugh. I hardly breakout and this made my face go ballistic. Big ugly breakouts! As for radiance...never saw it in the three weeks i used it.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Normal Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
I was given three samples of this by a generous SA and I'm now halfway through the second. It took about a week to work but I'm impressed with the results. It's made my skin smooth and clear, it feels as though it's helping shift the dry/dead skin that would otherwise clog my pores and make my face look dull. I've had less breakouts too. My skin can get upset easily at new products but this has made it calm, will definitely buy it.
Update: This stopped working for me. Had a break and went back to it but it's not as good. For the price, I won't repurchase. What a shame.

I love love this Tourmaline charged fluid. I use the tourmaline protective lotion with spf 15 on top .I use about 2 pumps on my face and throat.I like the natural smell and it feels good I always apply on dry skin and pat and smooth it in. If your skin is moist it doesn't go in well.I find that my skin has far less breakouts and the texture of my skin is smoother, firmer,no dry patches yeah!!!! I use the whole Tourmaline line and love it!!!!!!

On my first week using this product, so far I'm impressed! It's a little slimy at first, but it dries quickly and then... perfection! I am already noticing that my face is softer and I love it! Go out and get it, if you don't like it they let you return!

Very disappointed in this product. Too expensive and does not impresse me. What ever happen to Aveda?
