    The best there is

    I have tried ALL the retinol and retinol-like products out there, and my skin has never looked and felt better since I added this to my nighttime routine. Absolutely wonderful.

    4 Days!!!

    I have NEVER written a product review before but I got a sample of this from Sephora last weekend, I used it Monday-Thursday. Today is Friday. I no longer have the two parallel frown lines on my forehead that I’ve had forever. That’s it, that’s the review. If I had known it was going to be this good I would’ve taken before/after photos!

    Better than retinol (for me)

    I'm sure retinol products work great, but I could never use them often enough to experience their benefits. They don't make my skin visibly irritated, but make it SO sensitive that water feels like it burns my skin. No thanks. This stuff is the best solution for me. No fragrance to withstand, no sensitivity, AND I can wear this day and night! I'm a lucky 34 year old and don't have too many wrinkles, so I am always just looking for maintenance, and this really fits the bill. Not too mention my complexion is much less red when I wake up in the mornings (I used to call this phenomenon "morning nose"). I hate paying $54 for this, but I NEEED it. If you want to try the mini first, it actually lasted a good while, and I saw results before it was empty.

    Love this serum

    Have heard about bakuchiol for a while, finally purchased this at a great beauty shop, Joia, in Northampton, MA. Love! Smoothing similar to retinol without the tingling/irritation.

    I have two types of Rosacea & this is itttttt.

    I suffer from two types of rosacea and have always wanted a retinol product that would work for me without making my face burn & raw to the touch for days on end after only one use. This retinol alternative serum is amazing. I applied it at night for the first time and woke up to a face that was smooth and the redness minimal. I also suffer from very dry flaky skin and since I've used this product day/night I have not had a single flake of skin. This is now a staple product for me, I am in love.
