I don't know what I'm doing wrong but these were horrifying bad. Before this I was using Clarins Double Serum and Lancome Advanced Genifique which both are great, but I thought maybe there's something else that's better and will give more omph...oh boy was I wrong.
So I purchased these in the 30 capsules for $70aud, you twist the top tab twice and the capsule breaks and you squeeze out the serum. When you first squeeze it out into the palm of your hand it's oily, it's quite runny, like it feels like bio oil or some cheap cooking oil. When you start applying it on your face you'll think it'll never absorb and you start to think omg what have I done. Then after about 2 minutes the serum fully absorbs into a matte finish, like you have just applied a silicone primer but in a liquid form...But you still feel it sitting on top of your face...I feel as though it just sits in top of the skin and doesn't actually absorb into the layers of the skin because it's so silicone heavy. The best way i can describe it is a dry silicone oil that just sits on top of the skin. All your wrinkles n skin texture is highlighted because of it, there wasn't any smoothing benefits at all..It also really irritated my face, like it broke out my face into little red blotches, my Cupids bow was also irritated. After 1 week of use every night, I didn't see any soothing benefits at all, just irritation all over. The formula does contain ceramides but it's listed in the middle of the formula after all the silicone and filler ingredients, i don't think that amount will do much for the skin. I can't return these because i already opened it and used it and my useless retailer (Myer) don't accept any returns.
