Most Helpful Positive Review Great addition to Night routine.
I received this Bliss face serum 2 weeks ago and have been using it ever since, every night, along with my usual nighttime routine. With 2 kids and homeschooling I really don't like to add more steps to my routine however this serum was a nice addition & having recently turned 30 I feel like taking care of my skin is a top priority. At the moment I use a 3 step regime for oily skin which consists of washing my face with the cleanser then going over my face with toner on a cotton round, I then use the Bliss serum & once that is completely dry I apply a moisturizer all over face/neck. The Bliss serum directions say you can use a moisturizer on top which I took full advantage of. The first two times I used this my skin was tingling and it seemed to burn a slight bit but after the 3rd night it no longer happened. Glycolic Acid is known for removing the top dead cells layer for a better complexion that is to look fresh and bright. It also helps with reducing the look of fine lines, wrinkles and scarring. I have a lot of acne scars from my teen years and discoloration so I was really excited to try this. I've done a few facials that incorporated this treatment so being able to have something on hand was great. It's also said to help with oily skin which I struggle with so again, another perk. I love the look of the bottle, it's a nice color and looks great on my counter and is transparent enough to be able to see how much serum is left. The pump works very well, I haven't had any issues with it. I started using the serum the night that I received it & loved the way it felt, it does have a sort of sticky consistency but it's very smooth and when it dries it soaks into the skin well. It also has no scent which I prefer. I tried using it without moisturizer the first 2 nights but I personally did not like the way my skin felt, very tight and dry, I felt like I needed a boost of hydration so after that night I started applying a moisturizer on top of it and it felt much better. I do notice my skin looks a lot more supple and soft every morning but I can't say much about the scars because they look the same, it might be because I haven't been using it long enough. I will be completely honest, I am notorious for opening up a package and tossing the packaging right away so I didn't get the chance to read the ingredients on the box as I assumed they were on the bottle itself (they are not). However I am confident that this will be a product I continue using because my face does feel improved. I don't recommend this product for people with acne though because of the warning to not use on cuts/open wounds, the stinging I experienced would probably be worse for sensitive acne. Overall a great item. Thanks to the Stellar Product Testing Panel for providing me with this product.
Most Helpful Critical Review Didn't hate it but didn't love it either
This is my honest review of BLISS: Renew & Smooth Glycolic Night Serum...
Q.How often were you able to use this serum? Were you able to see results quickly? Was it easy to incorporate into your nighttime routine? A.I got it almost 2 weeks ago, and with the hurricane, I forgot all about it. I used it twice. I didn't notice a difference when I did use it. I don't have much of a nighttime routine, so it was difficult to remember to use this.
Q.How did your skin look and feel after using this serum? Did it help your skin feel brighter, smoother, and/or softer? A.It just looked shiny from what I could tell. I thought it just felt kind of sticky, which I didn't like.
Q.What did you think of the ingredients? Is it important to you to use skincare products that are vegan and/or cruelty-free? A.I don't use facial products other than acne wash in the shower, so I don't pay attention to that stuff. I guess if I used it more often, I would care if it were cruelty-free.
Q.What was your favorite result after using this serum? Would you recommend it to a friend? A.This wasn't my favorite product to test. I have sensitive skin and was hesitant to try it. I can attest that the 2 times I used it, I didn't have any adverse reactions though. If a friend were into this kinda thing, sure.

I tried this product for about 1-2 months. I made sure not to make the mistake of OVER use since this a chemical exfoliant containing glycolic acid. I deliberately chose this product based on the ingredients. I really liked a similar product in the past but it was more expensive than bliss. After trying it over time, I Decided glycolic acid might not be right for me. Maybe it is the fragrance? maybe it is the PHA in it? I have sensitive dry skin, Maybe this was not formulated for my skin type. I think this serum is easy to use, affordable, and worth trying if you have a different skin type.
Brittany from Alabama
I gave this product 3 stars because this could be a user error. LOL I used this during an at home facial. I've never used a serum before so this could be my mistake. It is extremely sticky... I put my moisturizer on after applying this & maybe I didn't wait long enough because I had this peeling effect like I was sunburned if that makes sense. But it could be that I didn't give the serum long enough to dry before applying my moisturizer.
Bang For Your Buck
SamM from Long Beach, CA
I highly recommend this. It goes on clean and doesn't leave a greasy residue. I would definitely agree that my skin looks smoother and more supple after using this product for a few months. This product works well and is unbeatable for the price.
Glowing Smooth Skin!
Jbuns from Chicago, IL
Yes my sensitive skin drank this all up and left me looking smooth and refined and glowing. You have to start with every other night so you don't over do it. The ingredients are amazing and so is the price point. Buy this now!
not so good packaging
EstaR from fort myers, FL
the top does not come off easily you wind up having to take bottle apart in order to get serum
Love it! Get it now!!!
GG from WA
Ok so I have little bumps on my chin from where I pluck chin hairs! It sucks but I can't find anything to smooth out my skin there. I try everything high end because I assume if I spend more it will work more, wrong! This affordable night serum is the trick! Ok so listen to this, I got the bottle yesterday, I was passing out last night and was too lazy to wash my face (I had washed my face 5 hours earlier)so I just grabbed the bottle and pumped maybe a pump and a half out, applied like moisturizer and passed out. This morning I have results! Smoother chin bumps! Good stuff, I will continue to use nightly to see if it really does a good job, but overnight 1 use I feel a difference! It was a bit tacky, I was supposed to put a moisturizer on over but I didn't. It had no sting whatsoever! I love the sting and was hoping for the sting others complained about but my insensitive skin experienced none. Highly recommend!

I decided to try this after enjoying the Bliss peel pads. I can we report that after one use, the next morning, my skin felt incredible. my mildly sensitive skin did not experience any stinging or burning, perhaps five seconds of a gentle tingle.

This is a great night serum in the morning youll be glowing so I would definitely recommend.
Burned like crazy
Kitty from Portland, OR
The first time I used it it was a just a serum with a mild tingle. Kinda thin and didn't feel sticky which was nice. By the third or fourth time though it quickly started burning. I had to wash my face multiple times and it was still red and burning. I ended up putting cold milk on my face which helped quite a bit but the burn still remains. I don't even have that sensitive of skin!
All in all I guess my message is, try it on your arm or something first. I never worry about spot testing as I've never had a reaction like this but just be careful.
its a no from me
viv from california
i don't consider my skin to be sensitive or reactive to most ingredients, however after trying this for the first time, my cheeks turned beet red and felt warm so i had to immediately rinse it off my face
i was using a clay mask on my tzone and this was the only new addition ive introduced to my routine in a while so i knew it was this.
the thing is that there isnt anything in the ingredients list that my skin cant handle.
side note, the other 2 serums, the vitamin c and the glowy one in the pink bottle, those i like and have no issues with.
affordable and gentle
tmizzle2 from undisclosed
I have sensitive skin and I don't require a very complex regimen. But I still tried the high-end Brands because I thought that they were better. To be honest this Serum is perfect. It's cost-efficient yet gentle. I tried this in a combo pack with the morning serum to test it out and it works so well I purchased the full size bottle. And I will be repurchasing when I'm done. I highly recommend for sensitive skin and people on a budget. Quality products don't necessarily have to break the bank.

Kinda has a strange smell but does dry very quick and into your skin well. I havent seen results as quick as I had wanted to after multiple uses. Going to continue giving this a chance.
Regret not buying this sooner
Maggiemac from Montebello, CA
I have searched high and low for a night serum that doesn't burn my skin. I have super sensitive skin so i can't take chances with skincare. Everything I had tried prior to purchasing this was extremely irritating. NOT THIS!!! Bliss is my go to for skin care. I use this and the the daytime serum and it completely changed the game. My skin is smoother, my lines have almost diminished, and I am proud to say I don't need to put on a full face Of makeup anymore. I'm so happy, comfortable, and confident in my own skin. I can't say anything negative about this brand. Try this out!!!
There is a tingle
joleneb11 from undisclosed
I use this serum every night and the tingling sensation has never really gone away but I do not find that it is anything to be concerned with. The pricepoint is pretty average for this type of product. I only use 2-3 pumps so it lasts quite awhile. I do wake up with my face very shiny and oily but my skin has smoothed out a lot since I started using this.
eveg17 from undisclosed
I love this serum! As someone whos skin does not take well to retinol but wants the results, this does the trick. It makes my skin feel firm and smooth and I wake up with a natural glow and more even tone. I always follow with a moisturizer
I got this stuff...
katiem355 from undisclosed
I got this stuff because I didn't want to splurge on the Farmacy Honeymoon Glow and figured that if this didn't work, I would try the Farmacy next. Boy am I glad I tried this one first! Besides being a much better price point, I see great results with this! My skin is always so soft and smooth in the morning. Highly recommend.
sashad27 from undisclosed
I like this serum because its lightweight and applies well. It seeps into the skin well and it lets me apply my moisturizer smoothly.
I really like this...
jaimem21 from undisclosed
I really like this product but it hasnt made much of a difference in my skins texture. Its light weight. At first you might feel tingling which is normal. I will continue to use until bottle is finished and see but its been 2 months and which my skin was a little more smooth
buzzyab from undisclosed
I LOVE this serum! Bliss has some of the most adorable packaging and the color makes it easy to find among my other skincare products. The smell is nice and not overpowering. I have relatively clear skin but suffer from the occasional breakout, and this helps to gently and quickly clear up any acne. I notice almost instant improvement in my skin and will definitely repurchase this when I am out.
If youre in the market for a glycolic serum, this one is definitely worth it!
Abbe from Granger
I have acne prone skin, and while this didn't help to clear my acne much, my complexion looked a lot better overall after 30 days of use.
I would love to try the orange bottle (vita C) next!
I would say if you're looking to improve your overall complexion and fade dark marks this would be a great option for you!

leaves your skin looking dewy and moisturized not sticky . Not my favorite serum@but its not very expensive but the ordinary hyaluronic acid is cheaper and better
This is great! Its...
biaw1 from undisclosed
This is great! Its pretty budget friendly and it does break me out! Its helped allot with my milia and acne scars! I think it would be suitable for all skin types. It has a sticky texture but it absorbs into my skin very quickly. I would definitely repurchase.
baileyk05d9 from undisclosed
I really enjoy this product but I did think this was going to be a lot more comparable to their peel than it was based on the ingredients. My skin does look rejuvenated the next day and plumped up!
Kels from DMV area
I would recommend this product to those with combination skin. It is a pretty straight forward night serum. Good formula and can be paired up with different moisturizers and still hold it's own.
