Rated 4.59 out of 5 stars
Right away I liked the feel of this serum and I noticed an immediate response from my aging skin. It appeared to actually look better. I don't have an issue with scent unless it is one that bothers another person. This has a nice clean attractive scent maybe a little like an orchid. Since it has a hefty little price tag too I had to do the math. If this last me 3 months and I think it will then it cost about $20 a month. I can spend that much on coffee in a week so I think it passes my do the math test. I'm pretty sold on it.
I had received a deluxe sample size of this from an Ulta goodie bag. I tried it that night after washing my face and not only did it smell so bad it made my skin very very dry, almost immediately. So I waited ten minutes and put my normal moisturizer on. I did this for a couple of nights (despite the horrible smell,) and my skin was dry, my pores just clogged up and I broke out. I don't have extremely sensitive skin either. I usually have oily/normal skin. Not sure if I just received another bad sample from Ulta or this product just isn't made for everyone. I'm leaning towards it being an old sample because I had a similar experience with another sample from Ulta. Kinda disappointing when you're spending a certain amount to try the free sample of another product...

I never give reviews- and I never tell people which products I use. I guess I am weird (haha) but I am 60yo and people think I look like I am 35yo so I think "If I tell them what I use then everyone else will use it too and I will lose my edge". I know- I am strange. That said- I need to start leaving reviews for my favorite products because I have this fear of them going away if not enough people know about them. This is one of those products. I have a wardrobe of serums that I cycle everyday. I always use 3-4 serums at a time before my final moisturizer. Everyone keeps talking about these new "Essences" and even though they don't market this as an Essence- it performs like one for me. I can use it first- and then my other 4 serums. It does not come out of the bottle like water, but for me it surely absorbs like water. That way you can easily layer things on top. It works and I love it.

maybe I'm not giving it long enough, but I've been using this for a few months and don't notice mich of a difference from using a drugstore serum. I won't repurchase, but it does do a good job if it has the ingredients you are looking for.

I received a sample and I noticed my face was GLOWING!! so I bought this. I was breaking out a lot and after I started using this my face cleared up. sometimes I add a couple drops off either tea tree oil or frankincense and put it on. I love it!! The extra on my hands I've been wiping on my arms. I have KP, so I actually have a habit of wiping the excess of my face creams on the back of my arms. My arms are so soft now from this serum. There are still bumps, but it's so smooth now and doesn't look red and blotchy. AHAVA mineral hand cream had actually helped my arms as well :)

Again Skeptical about the reviews but using with the Dead Sea Cystal Osmoter 6x facial serum my skin has never looked better - honestly I can't think of a single thing wrong with this product - a little goes a long way - use it morning and night on face/neck area - massive improvement in overall appearance - I can actually go without my bb creame - using now for about 2 weeks and WOW what a difference - you have absolutely nothing to lose - try it - you'll never use anything else - bye bye harsh chemicals - hello dead sea minerals!
Beautybug from Southern California
Love this! Faithfully have used Philosophy Hope in a Jar! Didn't need to change a thing. I added this first then my Hope on top and I have never felt such softness and smoothing to my skin before. Actually excited to put on right after showe. Feels so good. I also purchased Ahava dry spray oil for the rest of my body! I'm a fan of this brand.
Riss from St. Louis, MO
Got a sample of this and was super-impressed, so I really splurged and bought the big one. Disappointed--didn't help my fine lines or wrinkles one iota. Not worth the price at all. Won't be buying it again.
Susie Q from Littleton Colorado
I really just started using it but I have noticed already in the short time using it my skin is starting to look a little more tone.
Lennon from Nashville
I received this product several months ago as a sample and after just one use I saw a difference in the appearance of my skin. Although I typically have a hard time spending loads of money on one product I absolutely had to have it. After a month of using this consistently every night before my moisturizer I have seen a dramatic difference. My skin appears so much healthier, it's softer, more radiant and the consistency has become much better. I tend to be sensitive to most skin care products but find this to be extremely gentle and beneficial. It also makes my makeup application much better and gives me a healthy glow underneath foundation. Oh, and it also smells amazing! I'm in love with this product. Definitely worth it!

Yass from Jackson, TN
1st had as a sample and when it worked i had to have! I have really sensitive skin and many things irritate my skin, especially the dry portions on my face. Love this product....it moisturizes and soothes. I used 2x, morning and night and follow with my regular moisturizer. My face looks refreshed and brighter with 1st couple of uses. It was pricey for my taste but very worth it.
Amanda G. from Woodstock, GA
I was given a few samples of this yesterday and can already see a difference. I have the worst combination skin but I have literally seen the lines on my forehead & under my eyes become less noticeable overnight. I used it last night and this morning with the yes to cucumbers soothing lotion. It absorbs super fast and leaves skin soft all day long without causing extra oil or a breakout. Its so hard to find a good product with combination skin but this is amazing!!

I've been using origins moisturizers for a long time and I lovee them, but with the addition of this serum to my skincare regimen has made a big difference. My skin holds the moisture all day, feels soft and this doesn't irritate! Lightly scented, but it fades quickly. Will definitely buy again!
Beauty from Florida
I had received a sample of this and I am so glad I did! I started using it recently and I can't tell you how amazing it is and how amazing it smells! I live in Florida so the weather is very hot and humid but can get a little cold during the winter months, usually January and February. I have combination/oily skin and my face started to peel, from the bridge of my nose to my cheeks and chin and little spots in between! It was awful, I felt like a reptile shedding its skin. I had tried other products before to moisturize my face and it did nothing! I started using this stuff and from a few days to a week my skin was cleared up, moisturized, and super soft! It is very expensive but for how amazing it worked with my skin I think I might have to sink some money into it.

I use two pumps in AM and two in PM. Can be used under moisturizer or alone. Great serum minus oiliness. Drys quickly and skin tone improved after first week. Wish it were a little cheaper.
Beauty Bum from Austin, TX
I tried this product via samples and absolutely love it! I have always used brands like Clinique and Lancôme and would say this is much better. It works great at smoothing your skin and closing up pores. I noticed a difference right away. It is rather pricey, I use two pumps morning and night. I would guess at that rate it will last about 3 months.
ECR from Central WI
This makes my skin glow. It´s a bit on the pricey side but it´s worth it!
Terri the traveler from Newport News, VA
I use this in addition to my moisturizer. I started using this about 2 years ago when I lived in Israel, and now that I live in Virginia I still use it. This product is good in both dry and humid areas. This gave my moisturizer that extra boost without being too heavy. This product did not clog my pores, or cause breakouts.

I have suffered with eczema over 40 years and I no longer have it but this is the best! Doesn't burn my face
Julis from Bay Area, CA
Rec'd this as a sample and definitely would not purchase due to the awful scent. I would not recommend to anyone who is sensitive to strong odors.
Karen from Newport news va
I received a sample of this and fell in love with it. It has made my fine lines around my eyes much less noticeable. It has also softened my skin and made my pores look smaller. It's well worth the price. I will buy it again and again. This is my first Ahava purchase and I will be trying more of their products in the future.
Sarah from Denton TX
This product is wonderful!! It makes my skin so smooth and hydrated. It also has changed the texture of my skin in a very good way. It has brightened and smoothed my complexion, it helped balance my combination skin, it is not greasy or heavy, it absorbs well and feels great on. Plus I love the smell!
glossymama from DFW, TX
I received a sample of this and was very impressed. I use it as my AM serum as it is not heavy and is quickly absorbed. My skin was going through a break out period when I started to use this and it stopped soon after. I noticed my skin was also more even toned. Definitely try this if you are looking for a good serum. Smells good, too.
