Most Helpful Positive Review Noticeable difference within the first week
I have been using this serum for nearly a month now and I am OBSESSED with the results! I noticed a reduction in fine lines (I don't quite have wrinkles yet, I'm 32), the size of my pores (Yay!), and just an overall GLOW to my skin. This stuff smells wonderful and it's a light, airy texture when applied to your face. I only took one star off because of the price, it's INSANE. I know their ingredients are top of the line, but maybe put in a less fancy bottle to save your customers some money, we don't care what the bottle looks like, the product is amazing either way! Now I have to try the eye cream for these circle and bags!
Most Helpful Critical Review Good Marketing for an Average Serum
After only a day of use, here are my initial thoughts:
- I love the clean, vegan formula of the serum. Its awesome to see this is become more of a norm and that this product is pushing that norm further in a positive direction.
- Im fairly skeptical of the boosted long life herb (aka coastal hog fennel) inclusion. The claim is that because people who live long lives in Okinawa eat coastal hog fennel, its somehow going to have anti-aging skin benefits. A quick google search on the plant only shows benefits of increased glucose metabolism when consumed. Even then, these sources arent on their face actually from peer-reviewed scientific work. Looking at the serum as a whole, Im pretty sure the long life herb is just a marketing ploy for an otherwise run of the mill anti-aging serum.
- There was so much packaging. The product is labeled as clean, yet it was sent in a shipping box that was too big with too much tissue paper. Im not sure if this is on the company or Influenster, but Id expect both to be better about being environmentally conscious.
- The bottle looks nice but the cap seems to be a little small, so it can be tricky to open and close the bottle easily.
- The serum is lightly scented with an airy, vaguely floral scent. Its not overpowering at all and smells fresh. I really like it.
- The serum feels a lot thinner, more liquid than others I have used.
- Two pumps was about right to cover my face and neck.
- Some other serums Ive used have an instant, fresh feeling on my skin. I didnt have that reaction with this serum.
- No sticky, heavy or otherwise uncomfortable feeling. The serum seemed to seep into my skin fairly quickly.
Overall, my impression right now is that its nothing too special. Id love to be proven wrong.

I love this stuff and I'm so happy I started using it again. The pros: brighter, clearer skin. Any breakouts I have heal super fast since using this. I love the glow my skin has. The packaging and scent are perfect for me. I especially love the consistency and that this absorbs instantly. I find applying this so soothing.
My only two cons are I go through it super fast (using AM and PM) and I am a bit drier using this. I incorporated a facial oil to layer after this and under my night cream and that seems to solve the issue.
Serum from Wareham MA
I love this product. I use it morning and evening I wake with my face, neck feeling and looking soft and subtle
saved my skin!
anna from georgia
this serum will literally close your pores and make your skin shine. it's non reactive towards most ingredients which makes it great for dry sensitive skin!
Helped clogged pores
Izzy from USA
I have struggled with chronically clogged pores for over 10 years, with my chin being one of the biggest problem areas. Most products don't make much of a difference. Within 2 weeks of using this serum my chin is not perfect but definitely the smoothest I can ever remember! I keep feeling my chin because it is so smooth! My cheeks and forehead are also much smoother and my skin looks brighter and cleaner. The serum was not enough to moisturize my face on its own so I have been mixing 1 pump with jojoba oil and it has worked beautifully.
This literally did nothing
Cami from Chicago IL
Used it for almost two months and saw no changes.

Helps with acne scarring
Ella from Middletown
Love this product. I had terrible acne scarring and this did wonders. The smell is so refreshing and it leaves your skin feeling so clean.
A serum that calms down my rosacea! Love it!
BB from Summit, MS
I received a sample size as a Bare Minerals loyalty gift and that was a wise move because it works so well, I had to purchase some.
amanda from upstate ny
one week into using this serum and I am obsessed already. I am literally amazed by the results I have already gotten since using bare minerals products.
product smells amazing, feels amazing. seeps right into my skin, doesn't feels greasy or heavy at all.

I have used this product twice a day for about a month now, and I can definitely tell the difference. My skin is suple, hydrated, and looks more youthful. Excellent product!
BEST SERUM/MAKEUP PRIMER
V Maree from Gilroy
THIS IS THE HOLY GRAIL!! i use this everyday before i moisturize and it works amazing. i Started noticing a big difference in my pores minimizing as well as my skin tone becoming more and more even after just 2 weeks! i also really love how lightweight this is because i also like to use it as a primer before my makeup!! works wonders!!
I use this serum at night, and as a primer under my make-up.
Esthetician from Connecticut
When used as a primer, it soothes my skin all day, and really helps my make-up stay in place.
Leaves skin supple!
Rebecca from Maryland
I got this in a sample size with my purchase and I have to say I love it. A stable and pH balanced derivative of Vitamin C is within the first four ingredients, so I use this serum as my vitamin C. Overall it leaves my skin feeling so soft and supple. I am considering buying the full size.
Such a great product
Annie from McAllen, Texas
I decided at Christmas to purchase this. I was very happy, I realized I'm on my 3rd purchase and it is a staple. The texture of my skin has evened out and I rarely need to use my poor lotion. It was a great buy.
So far so good!
Hailey from Florida
I received this as a sample in a gift bag from applying for an ultimate credit card & oh my goodness! This makes my skin feel so clean! I'm 21 years old so I will not be able to tell the difference with the anti-aging, BUT I love how my skin feels from this & it seems as my skin is getting healthier since using this product, I love that it's light & not greasy at all!
I'm shocked! So happy I splurged - worth it!
Sleepy Mom from Tucson, AZ
I can't praise this product enough. I got the sample size for my birthday freebie. I do NOT spend money on myself ever, if I spend more than $10 on myself on beauty products, I feel very guilty. I'm a single mom, and I have a hard time spoiling myself with personal beauty products. But omg! This product made my skin so soft! I'm a mom of one, 30 years old, and nothing makes my skin feel as youthful as this does. I've been told that this makes my skin glisten, glow, and it's truly soft to the touch. Nearly baby soft! I'm absolutely amazed. I saved the trial size container in my dresser for over 8 months and finally decided to do something for myself and buy the full-size products. I purchased the serum, night cream, and eye cream. It's only day two of using these products and moisturizing day/night and I can see a great improvement already. I'm so happy with this purchase and will buy again. The travel size lasted about one month, the full size product should last a VERY long time, so much larger than the sample. You really only need two pumps per application, it's fantastic. And the subtle scent is very calming.
I will be buying this again. Very lightweight but efficient.
Newbie from Greenfield, IN
I love this and will definitely be buying again.
Erin from Arizona
Been using this product for a couple years now. It is one I regularly return to because it's amazing. It smells so fresh and it's so light weight and moisturizing at the same time!
STSF from Long Island, NY
This is a great serum, it was the first I tried and the first I'll go back to. I tried one other serum that unfortunately made my skin look 10xs worse than before I started using a serum, so I came back to this one. I don't think I have major decreases in fine lines but I do have a soft subtle glow to my skin while using it and I definitely feel that my skin is healthier, in a natural way. It's a great product especially if your not looking for dramatics, just healthier looking skin.
Gentle and Not Greasy
DV from Illinois
I needed a new hypoallergenic moisturizer since Clinique changed the ingredients of their 72HR Moisture Surge product. I have severely sensitive skin that gets chemically burned and breaks out easily. Been using this product every morning, every day and it works! My skin doesn't get greasy, keeps me moisturized all day, and so far, no break outs! It does have a slight fragrance but it doesn't bother my skin.
Smile Gem from Oldsmar, FL
This product has made my skin look brighter, it moisturizes without the grease or stickiness. I feel like I have regained the skin from my younger years.
HJH from Austin, TX
I love this product. It is one of the few moisturizers I don't react to, and I love that it isn't greasy and absorbs quickly. Having said this, I can't use it every day because it's expensive.
Love this product
Darlena from Blackville, SC
Daily in morning and evening
Got this as a sample...
Jeannie from Houston
And i think the packaging is very well made. Hopefully the full size version is just as great. Instructions say to use 1-2 pumps but i use 3 to cover my entire face and some chin/neck. Using it on bare skin doesnt spread as easily. Or maybe my skin is dehydrated and its soaking it all up before i can spread it. Anyways, i now spray a mist on and immediately rub this in. The mist helps spread it easily. Results wise, im noticing smoother skin. And more even complexion. No reaction. Not drying. Definitely not causing me to break out. I still have fine lines around my eyes, though.
All in all, i would buy this again.
Yes I would buy this product again
G double O from California
Yes I would buy this product again, I don't necessarily need to Buy a moisturizer this serum is enough soaks right in moisturizes really well I use it with a lightweight sunblock and then make a perfect.
