Most Helpful Positive Review Osmoter - Great Find!
Skeptical at first thinking surely this product can't be that great - purchased and hands down the BEST product I've used in many years - trust me when I say I've tried just about everything on the market and then some - You will NOT go wrong trying this product! I have super sensitive skin and as I get older much less tolerant to skincare regimens that have harsh chemicals - this product has some of the most natural ingredients out there - Try it - My skin has never felt or looked better - uneven skin no more!
Most Helpful Critical Review Application concerns
I really want to love this product but find I'm not using it because the applicator is extremely messy. It's basically an eye dropper that doesn't hold the product well so my sink receives more drops than my skin. Find it frustrating to use and have tried different techniques like putting the drops in my palm first but still am unable to go from the bottle to my hand with out several drops on the counter, bottle, bath robe, etc. So it sits on the counter. I would recommend this product to my friends that don't mind receiving half of what they paid for. If they fixed that problem, it would be perfect!
Reviewed by 52 customers I love Ahava, but...
Victoria from Maryland
I consider myself a pretty big Ahava fan. I use their products daily, so I was really excited to give this one a try. It's kind of like an oil, and you really do only need a drop or two. It really did hyper moisturize my skin too; I was impressed. However, second application, my face started getting really red and irritated. I was so sad. :( It's really a nice product, but I'd be careful if you have a lot of allergies, like I do. Still, my hands and face were soft... just red, haha. Customer service was super helpful though, thanks Ulta! :)
Yes, I would buy this product again!
Carina from Odessa, Texas
This product helps the areas on my face that are dry. To me, it doesn't feel heavy as I try to use a light amount and I follow the directions to smooth and warm in my hands then apply to my face starting with my cheek area. I would recommend to others.
My go to
Cb from Alaska
I use this first under a primer and moisturizer-my skin glows. I no longer wear foundation. I notice it helps with my pores and aging. it's pricey but worth every penny! I will continue to buy this.
I buy this facial serum over and over again.
Ladyjack from Georgia
I use this as a daily starter to keep my face feeling hydrated And it's my favorite for the year.
It's light but thoroughly does the job. I do recommend it.
Anna from Memphis
I love that serum! Perfect for my skin
Did Not Work for My Skin
Holly from Alaska
Unfortunately this did not work for me. The oil like consistency unfortunately has made me break out badly. However, I still love the AHAVA brand.
Soft Supple Skin - A Must Have
Serina from Chicago
I received a sample of this and used it for a little over a week once a day. I shortly after purchased a bottle of it and will keep repurchasing due to the results I've received. My fiance and I immediately starting seeing results in a very short time. My skin began feeling so much smoother, younger and firmer. I have very sensitive skin and had no issues.
I've tried a lot of brands (expensive and affordable) to keep my skin supple/moist and most have failed. The Osmoter absorbs easily into your skin. It will keep your skin feeling smooth all day and night. I honestly feel you have to try it to believe it because so many products make promises and don't deliver. I don't know if I'd of tried it without receiving the sample in one of the Ulta Samples ... most of the time I junk them as they don't have items I would use but this I tried and < 3'd.
The only negative is the dropper (it's like an eye dropper). The sample I received had no problems but the full size bottle doesn't seem to hold as much in it. It has never leaked on me or the sink though just doesn't hold the full dropper which isn't an issue for me since the product works superbly.
Helped my sagging jowls
cupo'oodles from Dallas, Texas
I was sitting in my hairdresser's chair one day and noted my sagging jawline. I'm in my mid-40's and don't have a lot of wrinkling just sagging. It was hard finding anything that was for sagging/jowls specifically but found this product. I have been using it for at least 3 1/2 years now and every time I return to the salon chair I note my jowls are much much much better! Because of the price point I didn't repurchase one time when I ran out and almost immediately my skin was off, complexion dull, and sagging returned. I should note that I can't tolerate heavy creams and thick moisturizers as they give me Milia but not the Ahava Crystal Osmoter! Love it.
Not for me, unfortunately.
BeautyMom from ohio
I was expecting a serum, thus is more of an oil. didn't absorb, so I will not be using under makeup. I will say it does moisturize though. just a bit greasy for me and I only used one drop. not the usual pleasant smell of ahave products either. I will continue to use nightly, however. I prefer the Dead Sea Osmoter concentrate.
I love this stuff
Caroline from FL
This product is amazing. I received a sample of it and have used it everyday in the morning and I will be purchasing this 1oz tube/bottle as soon as I am close to running out of my current sample. So basically I use the dropper (not actually using the full amount in each drop) and distribute a little drop in the center of my forehead, 1-2 little drops per cheek and maybe 1 on the chin. I then take my fingers and lightly pat my whole face to make sure the product is evenly distributed. So.... this stuff can be messy if you are not careful but it is not difficult to control. Once you apply a drop on your face, the product will quickly start moving down as an other oil serum would. But as long as you just do a little drop per each section of your face you will be fine. I never had an issue with the product going or falling anywhere else that is not my face.
I've noticed when I use this on my face, I do not need to use primer to hide my pores which is what my usual make up routine consist of. This serum truly hydrates, plumps and brightens my face in addition to shrinking my pores which I really didn't expect it to. It makes my skin appear more youthful and smooth and I will continue to use it everyday.
Nikki from California
I use this every morning and every night right before I moisturize...I've only been using it about a week now but I've noticed a serious difference in how my skin looks and feels. It's expensive but worth every penny. You only need to use 3-4 drops so it lasts. I've never been complimented on my skin until I started using this serum. Will continue to buy and highly recommend
Kayhad from Michigan
I had a tiny tester of this and noticed a difference immediately!! It works so well and gives my skin such a glow! Highly recommend to everyone!
J from Los Angels
I looooove this product!! I use it as a pre-primer before my makeup and it makes for a flawless application and look.
It's a super light oil, or thick and mucky like other serums. You can feel your skin drinking it up and it smells incredible. A fav for sure!!
Ahava Fan from California
This has been one of my favorite serums I have ever bought. Love how it absorbs into my skin producing hydration and radiance throughout the day. Makeup applies easily on my skin. I would buy it again.
Heather from TX
I am on my second purchase and this is my absolute favorite serum for before moisturizing AM and PM. I have combo sensitive skin that leans more towards oily this time of year in TX but I have been using this and recommending this to everyone I know and it is definitely universal for multiple skin types. It's so smoothing but non greasy. It absorbs into my skin and lasts quite awhile. Buy it!
Penny from Ely, mn
After a week of use I have noticed fewer lines and wrinkles!
Lala from Colorado
I have very sensitive skin and at even age 46 I break out with new products so scared to try new things but this serum was awesome I'm almost thru my first bottle and came to order another when I thought let me write a review it's totally changed the texture of my skin and I won't do without this product!!!! Love love love!!
Beauty lover from Chicago
This serum is AMAZING. it is kinda pricey but it is the best new addition to my skincare routine. It is worth the splurge. Feel like my skin redness has reduced and overall looks healthier. Also smells amazing not too strong and texture is beautiful. Love this oil!
PollutedSanity from Washington DC
I didn't realize that I actually received a sample of this (last year, oops... ). It is a deluxe at 1/3rd the size of the regular.*appreciate the nice size. The dropper for the mini is a little different than pictured--more like an actual medicine dropper. The full size looks like it might have the same top as the clinique smart night oil trial (which I also owe a review for*sigh*) that style top can absolutely can be A Major pain to use if you rush the process.
This product smells amazing and there is a barely there lightly textured, silky cloud-like consistency. This absorbs so very well and quickly...improves skin texture and tone. I do a massage and tap, and it dries to a dewy, air-light demi-matte healthy glow finish.
I would highly recommend to anyone--it has improved the look and texture of my lifelong deep forehead wrinkles... in just a few nonconsecutive uses.
Only con is the price point; However, just because it is expensive does not mean it is supposed to do the work and apply itself. Take as much time with the application as you did writing the negative reviews on this. The applicator and the application process, and lack thereof, is the most natural and least destructive to the product itself. Like organic or whole vs processed "product".
Love this moisturizer
NA from Manitowoc, WI
Use AM & PM . Noticed my dark spots are getting lighter.
Use it on my hands to . Made a big difference.
It Really Makes Skin Smoother and Lines Softer
Ragsy from Northern California
I could be imagining it, but my skin looks amazing using this serum. I just turned 35, have dry skin that needs some TLC for gentle signs of aging coming on. I use it at night because it's a luxurious oil (and a bit too much for mornings under makeup), and I swear the deep wrinkles in my forehead (those frown lines between the eyebrows) and around my eyes are transformed. This is not a cheap serum, so it's hard to stomach the cost, but I genuinely cannot imagine my life without it anymore.
Revived my dry skin!
Rigby's Mom from KY
I typically have dry skin. I'm 44. I also have sensitive skin that has been very dry due to experimenting with various skin care, plus it's winter. There are so many harsh products out there that left my face flaky, blotchy, and pitted with dryness. I tried Ahava's hydration mask and loved it, so I started researching their products. Very impressive, so I decided to try this. Within a week my skin started changing for the better. The flaky patches are gone. My blotchy redness has faded. My make up goes on smoothly. MY SKIN LOOKS GOOD! I use it morning and night on my face, under my eyes, neck, and chest, if there's any left I use it on the back of my hands. This stuff really works to hydrate, even, brighten, and heal my skin, in fact, after 3 weeks my skin is in the best shape it had been in a very long time. I do use a moisturizer with sunscreen and a heavier cream at night, but the serum is the only new product I'm using so I know it's working. Plus, there are no weird chemicals, and I love that! I will absolutely purchase this in the future, along with other products from this company because the products work! (I also now use their hand cream and brightening mask in the bright pink tub. Awesome!)
HelloKitty60yo from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
I have a large wardrobe of serums that I cycle through and always use 3-4 serums at a time (based on thinnest to thickest). At first I did not like this. It comes out very oily. I put it on my face and thought "Um- there's nooo way I can use this!". But give it time to absorb. It has Jojoba oil and Vitamin E oil in it so of course it is going to be a heavier oil. But it "DOES" all absorb. I put some on the back of my hand before I logged-on to Ulta to write this review- and it is now totally absorbed and all gone and my hand is VERY soft!!! I love everything that I have tried from the AHAVA line so far!!!
Awesome Product poor packaging
Arizona Princess from Arizona
I absolutely love the Ahava!!! Hands-down the best facial serum I've ever used. My skin is smoother it looks healthy it has a nice glow, it smells nice. However I have two problems my first one is the box that it's packaged and is so flimsy and thin! They don't even tape of the box closed. The last two times I've had it shipped to me it's slid out of the box and opened everywhere. Ulta has been amazing and replacing it. I have to say that! Sadly I'm going to have to buy it at the store because it ships horribly. The closest store is 2 hours away for me. So if you're ordering this online...know it might not come in very good condition. I don't think it ships well in high-altitude and also high heat! My second problem is the dropper does not go all the way down to the bottom so I have to tip the bottle upside down to get the little last bit out. Which is not a big deal to me but it's a little annoying sometimes. I deal with it because...The product is that good and makes my skin absolutely beautiful and it does great in the dry weather. The only reason I gave it four stars is for the two downfalls.
This is a staple in my skin care
Jamilyn from Utah
I have sort of sensitive dry skin, I use this morning and night paired with my Clinique 72hr moisture surge hydrator. I've been using this oil for more than a year now and it has tremendously helped my skin and makeup application. I hope they never get rid of it.
