- "I usually use this product right before I go to bed, and by the next day my eyes look more awake and there's less shadow under my eyes." in 1 review
This product does have moderate fragrance. It also lingers for a while after application. If you're sensitive to fragrance, you may want to pass or see if you can try it out before you make the purchase. I can't place my finger on the scent itself -- it's somewhere between pastries/baked goods and floral/herbal.
It seems to be a very rich, thick cream. However, it immediately sinks into the skin without any greasy residue. I find that it can be slightly tacky if you use too much. I used the serum + moisturizer with several foundations and it seemed to do well under all of them. However, it doesn't seem to react well with many sunscreen formulas. It tends to ball up and pill. I didn't really notice any excess oil throughout the day while using this. It also hasn't broken me out ... that I can tell. I do have a couple breakouts, but I think it may be from stress and all the walking I've been doing in this heat coupled with wearing makeup ALL day (like 12-16hrs). Now, I haven't noticed any difference in skin tone/texture or discoloration nor any reduction in the appearance of fine lines/wrinkles. Perhaps with continued use, I may see some noticable improvement; however, the brand claims two weeks is the magic number.
Overall, I think that this is a good, BASIC moisturizer, but a lackluster serum for aging skin. I do think that, for this price point, this could be worth it just for the moisturizer. If you're looking for a good serum for aging or problem skin, however, you may want to look elsewhere.
It's a good starter product definitely but I wouldn't use it for a long amount of time.
It does smell really nice and have a nice consistency
