Most Helpful Positive Review LOVE this product!
I absolutely love this product! I'm 39 (closing in on 40) and have the start of fine lines along with some deeper facial/frown lines. I also have rosacea which makes it difficult to find products that work without triggering flare ups. This product did not irritate my skin. I was skeptical about it's efficacy given the price, but was happily surprised! I have a fairly deep crease along the inner part of my eyebrow and after 6 weeks of use that crease is noticeably less deep. I used to be able to feel the depth of that line by running my finger over it, and now I can't feel it. I am also using it on forehead lines and frown lines an am seeing results, though less dramatic as these lines were not as deep to begin with. And, I love that it's cruelty-free!
Most Helpful Critical Review Zero results, but not greasy
I have been using this daily on bare skin after cleansing and below moisturizer for the past two weeks and have seen zero effects on my eye and forehead wrinkles. I have thin, fair, slightly sun damaged, and smile wrinkled 31yo skin and this product may as well be a bottle of water for me because I have not seen any changes at all. On the plus side, it is fragrance free and extremely lightweight and absorbent (hence feels like water). Oh well. I'll continue to finish the bottle and will amend my review if anything changes.
Reviewed by 54 customers I would not recommend for sensitive skin
Jamie from Ohio
I tried this product twice a week ago. I used it by itself since it was the first time I have used it. My skin looks like it has a bad sunburn. All around my eyes. And I have a rash all over my neck. This product came highly recommended but clearly did not work for me. Now I am trying to get my skin to heal. My neck got so bad at one point it looked like it was blistering. I definitely do not recommend this product.
Totally buying again
T from Phoenix
I am 36 and I love this! I have been noticing my forehead lines getting more prominent and this solution is making a noticeable difference in fixing those lines!
No Results After Consistent Use
Vanessa from Irvine, CA
I've been using this product 1-2 times daily for over three months, and have seen zero results. I use it around my eyes, laugh lines and forehead and have not seen any improvement in the appearance of fine lines unfortunately. The consistency feels like water which I liked since it isn't greasy/oily, but it didn't do anything for me.
This works really well on wrinkles
jane from Phoenix, AZ
I use this in the morning and evening
I really wanted to like this
Allie from Raleigh, NC
My skin has been so incredibly dry since I started using this, so it actually looks worse than it did. This serum doesn't seem to absorb into my skin, no matter how little I use. It just feels like a tacky film over my face, almost like a barrier. So I'm not sure if my other skincare products are actually absorbing into my skin as much, and maybe that's the reason for the dryness? I even added a hardcore moisturizer and my skin still felt tight and rough. Bummer.
Great beginner retinol
SLindsay from Fl
At 35 I have pronounced wrinkles and enlarged pores from lack of sunscreen use and years of smoking. I also have red pigmentation and very sensitive skin. This retinol is great for me, I have been using it nightly for a week and am already noticing decreased lines, and my visible pores are GONE. It's reduced red pigmentation also. It does dry out my skin so I found applying a good night cream 30 minutes after use has helped my skin the next day. I love this stuff!
dena from Ct
I love the ordinary products and was psyched to try this. Unfortunately I've been using this for 1 month and have seen no results . It's very watery and been using twice a day. No change in my skin. I don't know am I doing something wrong ? Anyone have tricks . I want to like this.
SierraGold from California Foothills
I used half the bottle for about a month or more. I realize most skin products do not deliver results overnight. But I used per the directions pretty faithfully and have not noticed one difference at all in the areas where i applied! On the bright side, I use several of the Ordinary's products that do work for me. Love the squalene and love the buffet!
I will not buy it again
sunshine from FL
it was like water when trying to put it on my face and when I tried it it didn't do anything
Always a re-buy for me...
Glamapuss from Los Angeles
I spilled half my first bottle, but glass is still nice. I'm mature, ahem, and the few fine lines I have around my mouth disappear when I use this. 11's had started, gone, don't even need to use this there any longer but do once in a while. I fast & dry fast often which keeps my skin firm and clear, never use moisturizer as it weighs/drags the skin down so no jowls. Very much a slacker on the few serums I use, no retinAs (tried difer'in & liked it til it dried my skin out and I began to see wrinkles, what??) but this one I will always use. They say it is like btox for yr skin without the poison of btox. Very pleased, will try to be never be without, only takes a few drops each nite except when I forget lol. Excellent product, cant beat the price!
Loose and Watery, No Effects Seen
Happicat from Florida
Bought this product based on the reviews of others and researching its purpose online. It is loose an watery. I have noticed no change whatsoever in my wrinkles. I would not buy this again.
AllyCat from London
I love what this has done for my eyebrows!! Buying several to give out for🎄🎁 so inexpensive & very impressive.
Not Convinced it Works
Morgan from Kentucky
I've been using for months and haven't noticed a difference in any fine lines or wrinkles. I was using mainly for preventing further wrinkling of smile lines, as I'm only 20. Just feels like water.
Sue from Arizona
I was skeptical at first, but within a few days I noticed my eyes and forehead starting to look firmer.
did nothing after 2 months of use
butterfly from Naples FL
I applied it morning and night for two months straight, nothing, not a tiny bit of difference. And I do not have deep wrinkles that have developed for years, just smile lines and my forehead is beginning to move and slight sign of a line.
I read about the research on this ingredient, there is one medical journal article, but it depends how it is mixed that would make it effective or not. And there is no telling how this product was made. Otherwise, all other research out there is put out by The Ordinary itself, no one else.
Not convinced by the product
J3marti5 from Rochester, Mi
Not convinced by the product. After looking at multiple reviews online, I was ready to give it two weeks. Thought I would see some difference after 1week. Not so. Difficult to place on skin because of thin consistency, making it seem already soaked up when u try to apply to multiple areas. Prob will end up taking back.
Will Buy Again
Ramona from Dallas
This solution is like water. I wasn't expecting that and accidentally put on too much the first time I used it. It dries fairly quickly after I put it on. I haven't used it long enough to notice any significant changes but I have noticed some slight changes. I will buy it again!
This stuff is amazing
Haley from Portland, OR
I've tried my fair share of anti-aging stuff and have a few deeper wrinkles in my forehead. I can 100% tell a difference when i use this regularly and if I miss a couple days, I can also tell that. Bought it for my best friend for her birthday!
Lynn from Ky
Don't think I would buy again but nice on the skin.
Love it. Have to use religiously for results
chez from Iowa
This is amazing. I'm seeing a huge difference in some of the lines that have developed over the last year. You HAVE to use morning and night, this is the first thing to go on your clean face. wait to dry then add whatever else you want. I think people give up too soon or not using as directed.
it took me about two to three weeks of using it as directed to notice change. Also, if you stop using you will lose the benefits
Better than Botx
Tracylynnryan from Florida
So I hestitate to give this my honest review because I'm worried it will sell out if too many people catch on. I put this watery liquid solution on my face right after my shower when my face is still warm from the shower and just hit the cool air. It has tightened my forehead. Completely took away my smile lines and my fine lines around my eyes. I'm 39 and have some of the best skin of my life. This does nothing for dark spots... but it kills fine lines and wrinkles
Worked for me!!
Prissygurl from South Florida
I've used this for about 4 months and I can tell the difference w/the fine lines around my eyes and forehead. It's made them all softer and I can't even see my faint little crows feet anymore!
It's the consistency of water so it may seem like it's not working, but keep using it! Also, use it in combination with other products for it to be more effective. I works well with almost all of The Ordinarys acids, peptides and different vitamin C formulas. I use it everyday twice a day as part of a routine and it's worked very well since I added it 4 months ago. I'm definitely repurchasing!!
I think I need more time to see if it works no difference
Tete from Myrtle Beach SC
need more time to see a difference only been using a couple weeks
Drex from California
out of all 'the ordinary' products i have used this one has me so confused? for me it does absolutely nothing i use it just a described. The consistency reminds me of holy water , even at night after ive allowed it to absorb it shows no improvement. i have used this for half a year and my dynamic folds (smile lines) and forehead lines are still there.
Love this product!
Jenni from Georgia
I purchased this product about a month ago, in that time I have seen a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles!
