I actually paid full price for this product and I love it too!
on November 13, 2015
Felt like I needed to put that up front because it seems like I'm one of the few that did pay full price for this...wish they would have given it to me ;) Anyway, without any compensation from Instanatural and with a lot of skepticism going in, I have to say I love this stuff. Over the years, I have used so many different creams, gels, and serums. I recently started trying out dermarolling, and it is highly recommended to have a vitamin C serum to go along with that. I'm not sure how well the dermarolling is going...only done it once, However, this serum is great. I've been using this every night and the Instanatural Vitamin C serum in the morning under makeup...there's probably no need for both, just got a little Amazon shopping happy late one night! Nevertheless, I love them both. This serum is light, smells great (citrusy), and soaks into the skin quickly. I follow up with my moisturizer, and I'm done. I've had no issues with breakouts (and I'm pretty prone to them) after using this for several weeks now. I did have a couple bad spots when I first began, and I don't know that it's advisable but I went ahead and put the serum right on the active zits. They cleared up pretty quickly, not attributing that to this or an acne cream I used in conjunction...just a side note.
As for the results I'm seeing in this short time, my skin has really got a nice glow to it. It feels really smooth. This is going to sound a bit weird, but it doesn't look angry. You know, when you wash your face and look in the mirror and all that skin just looks irritated and like it's screaming at you. Those mornings are gone for me. I'm not seeing fine lines disappear...I'm sorry, but I don't believe anyone that says they see that in a few weeks. But I'm optimistic with how well this product is working already and the proven benefits of retinoids. I have noticed that I have some sun damage right under my eyes. I think it's what some people refer to as "chicken skin." It's just kind of bumpy, scaly looking. It always looks dry even when it's clearly not. This serum has actually started to improve those spots. They are starting to smooth out some. That alone makes it worth paying the full price to me!
