I think this serum has a very good packaging. It dispenses just the right amount and it keeps the ingredients stable and effective. I am used to the 1% retinol treatment from Paula's Choice so this 0.3% retinol is no problem. I like the texture as it spreads easily. I also like the addition of Hyaluronic Acid so that it can boost and keep the moisture in the skin. I will have to keep using it to see the firming action.
Usually products that come with retinol tell you not to put around the eyes, so I'm pleasantly surprised that I can use this powerhouse ingredient around my eye. Not only does it have the stabilized 0.05% retinol, it also has peptide. The dispenser is fantastic because it dispenses just the right amount of product. It glides on smoothly and is not too heavy.
This firming neck cream is packaged in a a very good pump dispenser. It dispenses the product precisely. Upon immediate use, my skin feels moisturized. However, I really dislike the smell. It lingers on the neck for a while. Since I only use it at night time, I didn't really care to fall asleep with that smell. The retinol stings a little bit but subsides quickly. I will continue using it for another few days to see its results.
Love the dark chocolate and that there is no artificial anything in the product. The only complain I have is that sometimes the bar smells like old stale oil despite the expiration is not until a few months later.
