Counterfeit or spoiled! Bad product smelled like shellac.
This was well sealed and looked like it would be good. It smelled like shellac.I checked with the Sephora staff, and they said if it smelled like that it was spoiled.When I checked with the Peter Thomas Roth website, it said any of their products on Amazon are counterfeit.I requested and received a full refund for this bad product.
It took about a week to see the results. Events out skin tone and lightens dark spots. The product is sticky and absorbs quickly. It also smells great like I want to eat the fruit. Overall, it’s great for the face and no breakouts at all. Just make sure you use sunscreen when you go outside after putting on this product.
This stuff is amazing. For the short amount of time I’ve been using it, it’s brightened, tightened, and smoothed my skin. Lines have almost disappeared. The smell is kinda funky, but it could smell like a foot and I’d still use it. It’s that good. 🙂
Combats winter skin, but doesn’t consistently brighten
I was persuaded to purchase this after a makeup artist used it to prep my skin before applying makeup. To lend context, I’m 30 years old and I have terribly problematic skin. It’s sensitive, dry and acne prone which can be a frustrating combination and in the winter time when the air is at its driest, it has a tendency to look dull even with a humidifier. Because of all of these issues I’m pretty picky about the products I use and expect a lot from my skin care. I was very curious about its claims to brighten and smooth skin.Now that I’ve used it consistently 2x a day for about a month and a half, I’m torn about whether or not I like this enough to find it worth the high price tag. I will say going in I didn’t expect this to be a miracle product. I’m not convinced any skin care or beauty product lives up to that description, at least not for my skin issues. The only things in my case that have made a substantial difference are prescription pills and creams for acne and facial peels at my dermatologist’s office and even those have only worked on breakouts, not the dullness I get in winter time.Results wise, the biggest thing I have been noticed is that my skin does seem to be noticeably less dry and irritated as compared to previous winters. (And this even as we are in the midst of one of the driest winters I can remember). This certainly wasn’t a benefit I expected to receive from this serum, but I will take it. As far as the brightening goes, those results seem inconsistent. Some days I swear my skin looks healthier and brighter, otherwise it looks just as dull as ever. As for fine lines and wrinkles, at my age they are still fairly unnoticeable. Perhaps there was something subtle, but I haven’t really noticed major improvements.Overall I’m not sure if I will repurchase once my bottle is through. I do like that it has made itchy dry winter skin less of an issue, but I don’t feel like I consistently got the benefits of brightening I was hoping for (even with I think pretty realistic expectations going in). If this was cheaper I might continue it because I do like how it feels on my skin, but I’m just not convinced it is worth it for the benefits I’ve seen. I don’t regret my purchase, but I’m also not blown away either.
This stuff reminds me of Ole Henriksen Truth Serum. It’s a citrus-scented serum enriched with vitamin C. I haven’t noticed much improvement by way of eliminating fine lines, but it definitely brightens my complexion and smooths my skin. It’s way overpriced, though, in my opinion.
