This serum goes on nicely and evenly and did not aggravate my sensitive acne prone skin. However after using it religiously for two months I saw no improvement in my skin overall and no brightening of my sun spots or post acne marks. I will finish using it up but will not repurchase. I wanted to try it because it’s natural. (I prefer algenist genius vitamin c serum and Dr. Gross collagen and c serum over this as I’ve gotten better results from them)

I am so bad with skincare, you guys. I get lazy about using it, or I forget I have something, and to be honest I can't really tell when something is working unless the results are like "OH GOD GET IT OFF" or "Wow, I actually look alive". Thankfully this oil is the second one! I don't know if it has done anything long term, but I use this when I feel painfully dry or when something angers my rosacea, and it works. It just does the job. It makes my skin look youthful and healthy, plump and radiant. That's all I need it to do and I'm very happy with it, so I wholeheartedly recommend it. Wait, I just read the review below me and I had to come back and add something. I'm sure one drop spread out and delicately patted in is the way to do things, but I'm a brute and I slather on anywhere from 3-6 drops in one go, just whatever it feels like will make my skin stop hurting and be happy. I must have drier skin than I thought! It's absorbed by morning. Thanks for reading this long!

I like this serum a lot. It's a softer approach to retinoids. I have been using tretinoin on and off for years, and my skin is very oily, so I had no problems with adjusting to it. Went straight into using this every night. I have had no breakouts, my skin looks very bright, no dullness what so ever, my discoloration and sun spots are fading, I have no fine lines, due to the use of retinoids and my oily skin. I would highly recommend this. I follow up with the mad hippie vitamin C serum in the mornings; and spray the body shop vitamin C energising face mist throughout the day. This has worked great for me.

First off, I have only used this for a short amount of time, and it's been mostly from samples. (I scored a couple generous ones at a local store.) I'm a fan of natural ingredients, and that this promises exfoliation, well, it drew me right in.I was surprised how quickly I like this product, though. It is steep, at around $34.99 (on the Mad Hippie website, but I bought it at the local business where I sampled it for about $27).What this exfoliant has done for me in a short amount of time has amazed me. I have normal 40-something skin with some acne scars and the odd breakout. I've been using a Receutics (Rite Aid brand) product loaded with niacinamide for dark spots, and that's been working great, but I've had a slow-healing breakout or reaction of some sort (that I sometimes fiddle with, which of course slows the healing even more) and the skin is raised and dry and it's been driving me nuts. I've tried rosehip oil, band-aids, coconut oil, ignoring it, Neosporin, aloe vera gel, and so on. Nothing has helped. Then I tried this, slathering it on one night a few hours before bed. (It's a mild to unscented gel-like formula that stings lightly for a few seconds, and only sometimes it stings, and it absorbs or sets fast so my face doesn't feel coated or sticky.) Then right before bed I applied a bit more. I did it again in the morning, and applied a couple more times throughout the day to that bad spot. And in just a couple days that area looked so much better and the skin was smoothing out. The rest of my face looks smoother, too, with just a touch more glow, but I am loving that this patchy, raised, irritated spot was finally less obvious and felt better, too. After the sample ran out, my skin was good for a few days, but not all healed, so I bought the product. As for the packaging, it's housed in a dark glass tube with a dropper, so I like the dark glass and the application method, so it won't get contaminated.I started using it and overnight I noticed some improvement. The Mad Hippie website suggests using this at night, and early on something like every other night as your skin adjusts, but I went a bit wild with it, applying a bit in the afternoon and dabbing it on trouble spots now and then. It already looks better again, so I plan to use this nightly and hopefully watch my skin heal and get exfoliated at the same time. I honestly don't know what is in this stuff that's so magical for me, but I'm amazed at how well it does work for me.

This, somehow, is a sunscreen with zinc that doesn't leave that awful, white cast on the skin. I freaking love you, Mad Hippie.I don't know how many times I'm going to use the word "light" in a review for Mad Hippie, but yet again, this formula is light and comfortable, spreads nicely, smells good and not too strong, and doesn't leave any sort of filmy, greasy feeling. It absorbs well. It has a considerably thin texture, but I don't think it will run everywhere unless you pump out a ton, which wouldn't be necessary. I'd say about a quarter teaspoon (odd measurement for sunscreen but it's almost 1am. I'm trying!) would suffice for face and most of the neck. The only thing I'll say, and I think this is just because of the way my skin is, I almost feel like it dries my skin slightly. The same thing happened when I used to use CeraVe zinc sunscreen (though that is much heavier). All I have to do though is add a bit more moisturizer than I normally would before I apply this and I'm good to go. A+.Given that one should use sunscreen every time they go outside, the price may be a bit steep for a 1.94oz. bottle at $24.99. Also, this is the same issue I've had with the other products that have the same packaging: the design is super cute and I love the look of the labeling and the container itself, but I can't tell how much I have left, or how I'll get out the rest when it's running too low for the pump to be effective. Still, a relatively minor complaint. I will just have to use my judgment when ordering a new one! :)
