You might be able to get away with using just this as a moisturizer but I think it works best underneath another one.

Yes!! I use it IN PLACE of a moisturizer....but depending on the night, might even use a moisturizer afterwards.....
You just need to let it sit for a while before you do that....

I used this as a moisturizer when i purchased it. You can have oil by itself as a moisturizer. It doesn't have to be cream based to be a moisturizer.I personally recommend oils especially if you have dry skin. They get absorbed into the skin faster and are more efficient.

I don't think Rose Synergy O12 is a moisturizer. If you have extremely dry skin you can use it under your moisturizer during the day. The best time to use it is at night on cleansed face before night cream or moisturizers.

It's more like a moisture boost, although I sometimes use it alone. However I am very dry and it is expensive, so I usually add a few drops to my moisturizer for a dewey effect.

no, this is intended to be used under your daily moisturizer, it's not any kind of primer.

Use this (one pump is enough) before your primer then apply makeup.

no. this is not a primer. It is a serum that helps to boost moisture. It works great as an extra to your night cream, or if you are super dry like me, add two or three drops to your day cream.

Yes! I am absolutely having a distinct leaking from the bottle. I've tried everything to make it stop but it's a design flaw. Very frustrating

One BIG failing, this bottle needs to stay upright, or it is prone to leaking just a little. If you do a lot of traveling, you may want to pour some serum into a travel jar (sephora's sample jars are fabulous) instead.

Mine doesn't have this....
exchange it. It is too expensive to be losing product... then again, mine always stays upright in my case...if I were to travel, I would put it in one of my many sample-bottles that I save from Sephora....

I keep the little clear plastic top and make sure to keep the bottle upright. Also, I usually travel with my products in a ziplock bag, but you're right, this one leaks.

I've not traveled with it yet but if I do, I will put it in its own ziploc baggie just in case. I have noticed a bit of leak in the area you mentioned.

I actually used the overnight lipid serum for Ren as well and I have now switched to the Rose Synergy. It is as hydrating withous the heaviness. I love the smell as well.

Look at the color bands on the product bottles..that particular line within the brand should be colored the same on the band on the full size as the tube coloring on the trial-I have a blue Rose moisturizer test tube and it's blue--which may be the blue "clean bio-active skincare" line, I love the CLEAN Bio Active product's....the "frankinsense" & boswellia serrata face and body are to die for-it really has that line relaxting effect..no that product is worth every penny!!! Good luck!!
