This product was just ok. It is very expensive so I don't think it was worth the price so I wont be buying it again. I didn't notice much of a difference in my skin. It went on my skin smoothly and absorbed well. The smell was fine. I do have to give it that. Usually, I experence serums that are slimy and messy and drippy.This one smelled fine and went on well and didn't drip. It felt slightly moisturizing on my skin as well. To me, there is nothing worth the price that stands out about it though. Absorption This product absorbed well. It even made my face feel a little moisturized. The serum was light enough to go under a moisturizer and makeup, so I give it 8 points for that. Doesn't Clog Pores This product didn't seem like it was clogging my pores and I didn't have any breakouts. Effectiveness I couldn't really tell on the effectiveness. It didn't seem like this product made much of a difference on my skin. I didn't have any notable problems with it either.
