Rated 4.6 out of 5 stars
When I got this serum, it was a little different from what I was expecting, primarily because I didn't pay much attention to it before I ordered it since I just bought what the skin quiz suggested initially, so I was surprised that this serum is more like a lotion than the serums I'm used to. However, after using it for a couple of months, I do feel that it has helped even out my skin tone, brightened up my face, and helped diminish some of my hyperpigmentation. It hasn't gotten rid of all of my hyperpigmentation, but nothing has, so I may have to try something a little more drastic for some of the worse spots. It doesn't irritate my skin at all, but leaves it feeling soft and smooth, which I like quite a bit. I have sensitive skin that is easily irritated and have often gotten dry and itchy patches from products that are supposed to brighten my skin, so I'm glad to find something that works well without irritating my skin. Between this and the rest of my TULA skincare routine, my skin was looking WAY healthier and feeling WAY smoother within a week of use and that has not diminished over time at all. If you have uneven skin tone, dull skin, and mild hyperpigmentation, this one will probably be perfect for you!
I bought this over a month ago, and used it daily for a month straight. Within the first few days, I noticed some increased radiance. Unfortunately however, my pores appeared larger, and I started breaking out! I stuck with it for a whole month to make sure there wasn't an "adjustment period" as there sometimes can be with new skincare on breakout prone skin... but the breakouts kept coming, and my large pores kept spreading. I know it had to be this product because when I stopped using it, my skin cleared up within a few days. Upon closer inspection of the ingredients, I saw dimethicone. A common ingredient to help give a smooth texture to skin... but can be potentially troublesome for breakout-prone skin (at least for me anyway). I have the same reaction to many primers & liquid foundations containing silicones. I do plan to try the hand cream next, and the probiotic supplements. I use the purifying cleanser daily with no adverse effects, luckily.

New to Tula and I've only had my products for a week. All I can say is WOW! The texture of my skin has dramatically changed and I'm still in shock. I anxiously wait for every morning to use this serum!

Loooove everything Tula makes. Never used products like theirs before. The serum sinks into my skin and really brightens it, I always get compliments when I use it!
Lauren K. from Undisclosed
Nice serum- I wish it were a little less thick, but otherwise it's great. I generally need to use more than the recommended amount.

Krista J. from Undisclosed
It's really worth it. Works and makes your face flow. I barely wear makeup w Tula products now!
Sarah M. from Undisclosed
My skin has not only looked this good, but also has never felt as good as it does after using this! I love everything about it! Highly recommend!

Gives a gorgeous subtle clean glow - like you got 8 hrs of sleep and a facial. The consistency is creamy but not heavy. Goes on smooth and isn't sticky.

This stuff works!!!

I love Tula products, however the illuminating serum isn't my favorite. I've been using it for about 2 months now, and it's just okay.

Smooths your skin and brightens it before you apply your makeup.

I love Tula. I have been using it for over a year, and my skin glows. The illuminating serum has taken my routine up a notch and now I really glow.
Caitriona c. from Undisclosed
This is currently my favorite Tula product. It it so lightweight and adds a perfect glow to your skin without being oily. I cannot recommend it enough!
Machaela H. from Undisclosed
I use this in addition to the sensitive skin routine and it has changed my skin completely! I feel like it glows and has boosted my confidence!
Libby from Undisclosed
I think I will really like the product, but the pump in my bottle doesn't work and I can't get any product out. I'm sure it's just my bottle and I got unlucky; it's just disappointing.
Ashley from Poughkeepsie
I changed over from another product and this one is great! It seeps into my skin and doesn't leave a tacky feeling . Great purchase!!

I have been using this for about a year now and I keep rebuying. My favorite product in the Tula collection.
Janel from Undisclosed
I've been a long time lover of Tula and I don't know how this product slid under my radar. I've only been using it a few days and the difference is amazing. My skin looks and feels great. I feel confident leaving the house with nothing on it and that hasn't happened in a long time. One of my new favorite products.
Dubhe M. from Undisclosed
The best brightening serum I've ever used. Makes my skin glow and looking healthy. Great to use for oily/combination skin as well.
Christina G. from Undisclosed
Another amazing product for sensitive skin that gives your skin the extra morning boost and brightens it while making it feel good. It is lightweight and absorbs quickly. A little goes a long way; this is a staple in my skincare/makeup routine.

It's only been a couple of days since I've been using this product, but I really like the way it feels on my skin. I'm super picky about moisturizer, living in humid south Florida, but this isn't too heavy. Hopefully it'll even out my skin tone, over time.
