Pointless, expensive, & strong smelling.

Uhhhh this does nothing for my skin. When you apply it and rub it in, it becomes tacky. It dries sticky and almost matte-looking, which is the opposite of what I want (:

I don't know if this broke me out, but I only get one or two pimples around my period and now I have 5-6 pimples on my forehead, some randomly near my nose where …

I think they’ve changed the formulation with this new packaging / release? The old version in the older designed bottle used to be only available in high end department stores, and then suddenly got phased out and disappeared. Since then it reappeared in Boots, and has been heavily marketed. I was excited to try it again, as I used to regularly get through bottles of this and it was one of my …Read more

This serum is too sticky to enjoy. It very easily broke out my skin (sensitive and break-out probe, to be fair). I did not notice any difference in brightening, smoothing or helping the appearance of aging. In effect, the purpose of using this serum was entirely lost on my skin. I ask definitely needed a moisturizer on top of it, which I would imagine would feel even more sticky in humid weather …Read more

Starting getting breakouts this week and I NEVER get spots and was lucky to never get them as a teen as well. Using this product is the only change to my lifestyle/routine so it's obvious to me that this is causing the breakout. Having googled it I saw many other people experience breakouts with this product too hence why I had to leave a review. Haven't noticed much improvement to my …Read more

I used to be really impressed with Olehenriksen (especially the Banana Bright Eye Creme) but my impression has changed over time. I purchased this as part of a kit that comes with a daytime moisturizer and night cream. It is a good set, especially for travel or just to test out the line before plunging head first into the full size products because let’s face it, they aren’t cheap. I’d rather …Read more

I gave this serum several chances, just to be fair, but every time I use it, my skin breaks out. And I pretty much never break out, my skin is not acne prone and rarely reacts to skincare in bad ways, just for the record. My mom had the same experience with this serum. I suspect, it is all the "natural" extracts, fragrance, and citrus irritants, which are really unnecessary in a product …Read more

I don't really understand the hype with this product. I've used it consistently for months and noticed nothing different with the brightness of my skin or my dark spots!

I'm a year too late writing up on this but figured better late than never. Firstly the packaging has thankfully taken into account the instability of Vitamin C and made it more difficult to oxidize, although I'm not entirely convinced this has been perfected yet. In here there are 2 types of Vitamin C: Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate and Calcium Ascorbate, both pretty decent forms and high up …Read more

I am on a quest to find the holy grail of vitamin c and this is yet another product I have tried but found it disappointing as compared to all the positive reviews. I used it for about two months so I could give it time to be effective and I could judge it fairly. I have pretty good skin and my main concerns are that I do have the beginnings of aging with my skin not as firm in appearance as it …Read more

This stuff is great. It smells wonderful and sinks in quickly, leaving no sticky or gross residue. I have used this for about 3 months now and have seen some nice improvement in my skin with respect to brightness and fine lines. I had one small forehead wrinkle developing that this product diminished, and my acne scars are gone. My face is also just lighter and brighter in general. I apply …Read more
