I’ve been using this serum for 2 months on and off. It has a light lotiony texture & a little goes a long way. It took 14 days & 2 pimples until my skin adjusted to the serum (my skin sometimes reacts to Peptides & algae could be pore clogging). It leaves the skin super hydrated, supple & moisturized all day. I can see a little lifting effect on my cheeks, It also wears well under makeup.
In summary, this probably is the most expensive serum I’ve used, it is rich in hydrating ingredients, peptides & antioxidants to both preserve the existing collagen & elastin and simulate synthesis of new extracellular matrix proteins; it leaves the skin hydrated & firm. A great product for dry & combo skin; acne prone skin, use with caution!
