I REALLY enjoy this stuff! I recently decided to incorporate retinol into my skincare regime, but was gunshy about spending upwards of $50. When I saw the great reviews around the internet about this serum, I figured the price was good, and it was worth trying. I'm very glad I did!I use this morning and night. In the morning, I cleanse using the Pacifica Coconut Water cleanser. Then I apply an alcohol-free rose water witch hazel (the Dickinson's one, not the Thayer's, and they both work well), and then immediately apply this serum, followed by Andalou Daily Defense moisturizer, and then rose oil around my eyes. At night, I sub out the witch hazel for the Pixi Retinol Toner, which I apply more like an essence by dispensing a few drops onto my fingers, and patting it into the skin. This regime over the past week alone has yielded some pretty great results. I tend to focus this serum around the areas that have more fine lines or wrinkles, and then work the rest into my face and neck in a patting motion, pressing it into my skin rather than rubbing. My skin looks dewy, bouncy, and plump. I've got quite an oily complexion, which means my skin regularly looks quite shiny, but my pores suffer. This actually helps my face maintain oil production, and my pores look more refined. My skin also feels quite soft.This is $24 per bottle, and you get 30 ml, which is a pretty darn good price. The box comes with a pipette, making it very easy to dispense the 2-3 drops they recommend. It's a nice glass bottle too. All in all, it feels like a high-quality product soup to nuts.I'll definitely repurchase this!

I don't use this as my only retinol treatment; I pair it with the Pixi Collagen and Retinol serum and I only use it at night. (I use rose water witch hazel as my day toner, but I do use the serum morning and night.) It does a good job of supplementing the serum. I find my pores are smaller after use, and it helps the serum absorb better. It's quite hydrating, and my skin feels quite bouncy and healthy.I don't use a cotton pad to apply this. Rather, I pour three drops onto my fingers, pat them all together, and then press it into my skin, focusing mostly on the areas where I see more fine lines. Then I pat the remainder into the rest of my skin, including my neck and a little onto my collarbone area. Then I immediately follow with the serum.It's a little pricey for a toner, but if I continue to enjoy it to the end of this bottle, I'll buy the bigger version, which is a better value. Since I only use a few drops each day, I suspect it'll last me a while.The packaging is good for dispensing a small amount, and the lavender-colored liquid with the light green packaging is quite pretty.

Bought, (shade 01 cream which was a tad too light for my nc15/20 skin) tried one time, returned. I'm combo skin, this made me super oily, my blush etc.. completely wore off, and for $24 USD, its super sheer and has no staying power. It applied lovely and does lightly even out skintone (not melasma tho) but Burts Bees BB does exactly the same thing, for less $$$ and has more coverage, if you are looking for something similar. I cannot wear either, as Burts has beeswax which clogs my pores. I figure I can create the same idea by just mixing my fdtn with my moisturizer or a dewy primer, and its still cheaper than Pixi. Just too sheer for the pricetag and drugstore, imo.

First product I’ve ever used with glycolic acid and I don’t think it worked with my skin. Also, the sickly-sweet fruity scent turns me off completely.

I love the look of the packaging and the way it feels on the face; it’s very hydrating and leaves a dewy glow for hours. I dislike the nozzle because it sprays huge droplets and it would smear eye makeup; residue also keeps getting into my eyes and it feels like soap. It’s also not the cheapest spray; a good alternative would be the Mario badescu. The nozzle on that is easier to control
