Got this off of eBay so spent around 4 bucks. A little sticky, but I use it under moisturizer. I'm doing Retin-A cream for acne/age spots, so I can only use certain products without drying my skin out. This with the day/night radiance cream works great. Haven't had any new break-outs. Also tried the Rose of Attar oil, but that was a little too think for me. This makes my skin smooth and moisturized. Smell is a little strange.

This i a great serum, I use it every morning under either my Creme de la Mer or my Kiehls Lycopene lotion. It really makes my face radiant!
My skin looks supple and even. I have very reactive sensitive skin that breaks out with rosacea at the slightest harsh chemical, and this serum has not caused any breakouts.
I love the fact that I am not smearing my face with chemicals.

Good lord, this stuff sounded like a great idea but it was a horror.
I thought I'd try harder to use natural products on my skin. Well thislittle gem: smells like formaldehyde, was sticky in application, did not make me look radiant, and gave me 3 new pimples over the course of a week day.
And $18 to boot? Returning this one asap.

I have been using this for about 6 days; I must say the results are WOW! My skin feels like silk and it really is brighter. I put a drop or two and rub on one side of my face then repeat on the other and my forehead. This stuff is a tiny bit tacky but does spread easy; you just need to work fast it does seem to sink in or dry quickly. I don't have any sticky feeling afterwards, I put moisterizer on top and then my makeup. Oh forgot to mention I put it on twice a day. I was a bit shocked at how small the bottle especially for $18 bucks! but I am getting great results so far it has proved to be worth every penny!!! I also wanted to mention this has licorice in it which is supposed to be good for fading brown acne spots.

This was $18 at the Dubya, but with employee discount + a $10 register rewards coupon, (holla!) It ended up snagging it for about $6.

The packaging needs a little work... it's a glass bottle with an eye dropper and I ended up sloshing a bit out the first time I opened it... can't afford to waste this stuff.

Rubbed 3-4 drops into damp skin after washing my face last night. It was a bit... sticky. I had to remind myself that Royal Jelly does indeed come from bees and that stickiness is to be expected.

The smell is slightly medicinal. No parfum or essential oils in this.

But I woke up this morning, And I kid you not... my skin feels like silk, it's more even, brighter, tighter, but with the perfect balance of moisture. This is after one use, kids. I can't wait to see subsequent results.
