How to Use
Rated 3.65 out of 5 stars
I only use this serum in my nighttime skincare routine because I use niacinamide in the mornings (as per recommendation by The Ordinary), and to avoid any skin sensitivity during the day with sun exposure. After double cleansing at night, I go in with a few drops of this serum (a little goes a LONG way) and lightly pat it in my skin and bring it down to my neck if there's leftover. Then, I follow up with the rest of my routine (toning, hyaluronic acid serum, moisturizer). This product is extremely cost effective compared to others like it on the market, it does as advertised and evens my skin tone (I struggle with redness all over my face). With all of that being said, this serum could seriously do without the fragrance. It doesn't hold a potent smell and while fragrance is low in formulation, it's completely unnecessary and may irritate sensitive skin. I would give this product 5 stars if it were fragrance-free, otherwise, I love the formulation and it feels great on my skin.
The smell is overpowering. It's my fault for not looking closely at the ingredient list, but Fragrance is the 8th ingredient on the list, meaning it is pretty concentrated and even higher in concentration than Vitamin C and Vitamin A. That amount of fragrance does not belong in a skincare product.
The texture is also weird, it's almost gel-like and does not feel natural. It is misleading to say they are "natural" and "sea-based" when they are not. It does not settle into your face and instead leaves a thin film on top of your skin that feels very uncomfortable.
I have tried natural facial serums in the past and this cannot even compare in quality. It even has artificial coloring in it to appear more yellow. I ended up returning this because it was so bad.

I usually don't review products, but this works and I feel compelled to write a review.
Just three days my face is clear and soft. Acne disappeared! My skin glows!!! I want to buy more and just apply it generously allover!
Perfect product! Not greasy but glossy! I wonder how this was formulated omg!!!!! This is pure heavens

I have used other products in this line and liked them so I imagine that I will like this.

I used this a handful of times and it made me breakout so bad. My skin is usually smooth with a few breakouts but I could feel a million acne bumps all over my face from this.

I live in a very arid climate and my skin is always dry despite the amount of water I drink. I use this all over, under my lotion. It's not greasy and it keeps my skin moisturized all day. Being in healthcare, I wash my hands about a thousand times a day. I also use it on my hands and it's improved the texture of my skin on my hands. I HIGHLY recommend this stuff.

I've been using this serum every night in my routine for a week and this stuff works wonders! Literally the first morning after using this I noticed a difference. I suffer from acne and texturing and it calmed my break out wayyy down. Now after one week the difference in my skin is amazing. My skins so soft the texturing is almost gone, my acne scars are barley visible and the inflammation and acne are actually starting to go away! I've tried everything and this is the only thing I've ever used that has worked soooo fast and well. My only complaint about the noticeable fragrance... it literally smells like perfume. Which made me ponder weather or not I should be using it on my face. It works though and it works very well for my skin.

I bought this about 2 months ago and immediately noticed the ingredients list was different from the one on here but I kind of brushed it off. However, within a month the serum was changing color and consistency. After a few more days of using it, the serum got a soap like consistency and was literally lathering and bubbling when I'd try and use it! It also started to smell pretty sour at this point. I obviously was not about to use it again but I was past the return date so that's exciting... I've seen a lot of good reviews for this product, maybe I just got a bad batch but this was super disappointing...

My first serum ever, and I'm so glad I picked this up. Easy to use. I use it after I moisturize and see a difference in the morning! Just careful to not put too many drops!

I use this product twice a day with my jade roller and I love this product.

My skin seems to love anything with ocean ingredients, and this product is no exception. It has made a huge difference in my skincare regimen. It makes my skin look so much brighter. I definitely recommend this product as well as the nighttime serum with sea lavender.

So the ingredients say that Tocopheryl acetate is Vitamin C.. but I always thought Ascorbic Acid was the purest/best form for Vit C in skincare. Did a little research and Tocopheryl Acetate is actually Vitamin E.. not even Vitamin C in the product. I only used it once but that already is a red flag.

I love all the products from VitaminSeaBeatuy. This serum takes the cake though. It worked so fast without irritating my sensitive skin. I had dark acne scar spots under my cheekbones and in less than a week they're barely visible. The serum feels great and has a nice smell. My skin has never looked so good. Love, love, love this product!

it didn't last long because it kept spilling, and it turned into jello on my dresser and was hard to get off. it burned with my moisturizer, but it smelled good. i don't really like it.
Em from Gonzales, LA
I use this product at night after I cleanse and tone my face and it works wonders. It helps with acne scars as well.

I have super sensitive skin. Fortunately, I dont suffer from acne. I get little clogged pores (uneven texture), some redness and dullness. I ways get nervous trying new products. I was in need of a serum that would help smooth some texture, brighten skin and even out skin tone. I was skeptical. Its been about a month and wow! My skin is GLOWING! I havent seen my skin this amazing in a while. I seen comments about how its so sticky, doesnt sink in well, not natural, burns. Everyones skin is different, I understand that. But it has everything in it that benefits skin. It does what it says. It sinks in perfectly. Dont expect it to sink in right away. Dont expect results right away! Be patient! Once its put on I dont mind the immediate glow I get right after! I love it! Theres minimal scent which is a plus. Ingredients ARE natural. If you give it time there will be a difference. I absolutely love this product. If you dermaplane and use this youll get even better results.

When applying it burned my skin. When i put it on my skin looked really oily. After I let it sit it felt really gross and sticky.
Melanie from Pa
I absolutely love this stuff. I have been using it for maybe a week now and it has already smoothed out my skin. I had little bumps on my face that are gone now, my skin is super smooth. I use it in between toner and moisturizer after cleansing my face. The scent was a little strange at first but I got used to it very quickly. The only thing I would change is that I never feel like it's shut all the way. But overall it's a great serum!
Emma from NJ
I wanted to like this but unfortunately it pills underneath my moisturizer
Lg from Tx
I had purchased this as a 1st time user to serums. I absolutely love this product, especially under my makeup. Every time I use this I get told my skin looks great and I'm glowing. I let this set into my skin for about 5 minutes before applying my makeup. Even when used for overnight, I don't wake up oily, I have combination skin. For the size & price it's overall a great value.
Courtney F from New York
I bought this after hearing how important it is to incorporate Vitamin C in your skin routine and being in still young I'm trying to prevent aging now. This did nothing for my skin, I tend to have some redness/discoloration and I did not see a difference at all. Tried this for about 3 months. Don't bother
Brightening serum from Cleveland TN
I use this product everyday. It's absolutely amazing. I have super red skin and this product evens my skin tone and brightens my face! I don't go without this serum! Top five skin care products.

My daughter and I both have VERY sensitive skin with some weird allergies. She is in her teen years, and this product has calmed her skin down, the tone is more even, and is looking brighter... with no adverse allergy reactions!!!

I love this after washing my face. Soaks in quickly before moisturizer.
