Fantastic blend of natural ingredients. I love it as a facial oil

Awful as a face serum (way to oily and sits on top of the skin) I use it as an oil rather, after a proper serum and face cream

Not much of a smell.But leaves my skin feeling soft,only use it in the evening so will have to see if it works for my dark marks and blemishes

I definitely think that the sealing of the bottle needs to be improved as a lot of product will be going to waste because of it and the bottle is so tiny already. However it’s a good product. Really locks in the moisture and applies nicely. It’s not runny like some serums can be. Haven’t been using it long enough to say whether it actually does brighten your face that much.

I really love this product! I put it on every night and every day I notice my skin is just getting better. Will definitely purchase again and again.

I love this serum and what it does for my skin. on the contrary to some of the reviews here I LOVE the plastic free packaging without the plastic dropper, such a cute bottle! I just use my finger over the opening and tip it over as a drop or two is enough.

Bought this serum to help give me a bright glowy completion, the serum sort of does that. It moisturizes and keeps the skin fresh but doesn’t really brighten at all. The scent isn’t that awesome either, it doesn’t smell quite nice although not bad, it just has an “oily” smell. Also the bottle is very impractical, it as a cork as it’s lid and spills evertime I use it which is the worst part.

I loved this serum. It has a lovely smell, absorbs easily and really did make a difference to my skin. However, the bottle is completely impractical and I will look for an alternative because so much of the serum ends up going to waste due to the bottle. #sosad

This serum didn't really balance or brighten my skin, it was a good moisturiser and left my skin nourished and soft however that's not really what I purchased this product for.

I bought this product with very high hopes because of the reviews. However, it breaks me out slightly which is a shock to me because I haven't had acne in a long time. It probably clogged my pores or something...Very disappointing...

I bought it two weeks back just to try it out,it's my first serm has I've never use one before.It helped clear my pimples and left my skin feeling soft and refreshed the next morning...good for oily and dry skin too

I bought this product for myself. I really enjoyed it a lot and borrowed it to my daughter for her acne prone skin. After using it for a week, her skin improved a lot. It looked more radiant and the acne started to clear.

Enjoying this serum very much, my skin is clearing up nicely.

I bought this product on a whim and I really enjoy its scent. On my skin it absorbs very quickly. I have not noticed any major difference in my skin since using it. So it may just be that my skin is already bright, but I recommend you give it a try if you have dull skin.
