I love this serum! A good trick is to make sure your face is a little damp before apply so it’s not so tacky. Absorbs really well.
I like the instant tightening effect that this transparent gel serum provides. Like a mini facelift type feeling to it. It layers well with my other skincare. It’s very lightweight and doesn’t clog my pores. You definitely need to add a moisturizer on top though because I don’t find this hydrating enough in its own.
This serum makes a noticeable difference when used regularly, which is high praise from “good in theory, underwhelming in practice” me. My face feels firmer and my skin is clearer, smoother, and more even. Can’t comment much on fine lines/wrinkles. Other formulas with tripeptide-1 haven’t had the same effect, so thanks ultra-powered extremozymes or other magic. It’s a little thick for the dropper applicator, but applies smoothly and doesn’t feel too wasteful if dotted over the face before rubbing/patting in.
Maybe too early to review this properly but first impressions after a week of use is that this serum seems to "depuff" my face? Maybe it's the caffeine in it. It soaks in really quickly and my skin feels good after that. Hoping to see more benefits long term from the growth factors!
