I had some scars (red marks) left over from an acne break out and after using it for about 3 weeks, they are about 75% gone. I'm confident with continued use they will go away completely. I'm not sure what kind of scars you have, but it worked with my leftover acne marks. If you try it, I hope it helps!

Does this smell strongly of lavender?
I have deluxe sample but I haven't tried it out because i am very sensitive to the scent of lavender, which is one of the ingredients. It gives me migraines, so I have avoided opening it.

No. It smells like barbecue sauce. Yes, that sounds crazy, but it's true - I had 3 people in my family sniff it and everyone thought it smelled like a pulled chicken sandwich, which is really strange when I'm smearing it on my face. :)

I haven't had any allergic reaction at all and I put it all over my skin, including around the eyes (and my skin is sensitive). I would say that this has general skin benefits, but definitely for the eyes too.

I doubt it. This product is geared toward cellular renewal, or gentle exfoliation/sloughing off, of dull/discolored epidermal skin--think age spots, scarring and hyperpigmentation from acne. It's a great product, though. Definitely works for the intended purpose.

YES! But you must be diligent about using it at night...I am terrible when it comes to a night skin regimen...but when I actually did...and used this serum...I woke up to brighter skin with finer lines. I really recommend this stuff...3 drops covers your whole face and most of your neck.

Anti aging products should start being used in your early 20. Operative word being ANTI aging. If you don't start now your skin won't be receiving the care it needs to combat our harsh external environment and the stress we put it through on a daily basis. There is no product out there that is going to reverse the process 100% so its best to take care now instead of stress about it later.

Question
Should I stop using, or will the breakout subside?
Received this as a Xmas gift and have used it 3 nights since; my skin is definitely more hydrated, but my forehead is badly broken out! I wonder whether this will subside (and is just a result of the cells are being regenerated or something)?

No, sometimes your skin will have an allergic reaction meaning this product just probably isn't for you. To confirm that it is caused by this product, wait until at least three weeks of continual use. That is when you will actually see the effect of the product and if it is breaking you out. If it is the. Try something else, like the marajacula oil from tarte. It is similar, in the same price range, and the packaging and amount of product is far better.

I'm not an expert by any means but I'd give this product and product like this at least a month if not two to do their job and mellow out before quitting it. I'd say that it's working and your skin needs to do its thing before you quit it. I love this product, though I did not experience the break out. I do, however, use exfoliating products so I may just be ahead in the game.

I don't break out, but a BM product (a night time exfoliation treatment which I recall cost $60...I am sorry I don't recall the name?) caused a terrible breakout for me, while the rest of the world seems to love it, as per reviews. To me, it looked like an acne breakout. Instead I was told it was contact dermatitis or an allergic reaction. I stopped that treatment ASAP, even though it was supposed t be great for my skin as a nightly treatment. I tried later on, and same thing happened. This oil U broke out form is nice, but its not the only one. I would not continue to use it if I broke out from it. I believe your skin is telling you it is not happy with it....maybe one of the special secret "active soil ingredients" does not agree with your skin....or perhaps it reacts with something else U are using? There are so many other wonderful products a Sephora U can try instead. How about Fresh Seaberry oil? JM Argan oil? Tarte's Maracuja oil? PTR Squalene "oil?" Some use the oils as serum, and some use them as a moisturizer. U can find on oil serum that is soothing to your skin. I am sorry U broke out, but don't worry...U can find another one that works for your skin. I try to listen to my skin, since I once cont' to use a product which gave me "breakout, " that later wound up burning my skin. (Long story) . I tried to tough it out, & I further hurt my skin in the end. But we all have different skin & issues. I would discontinue this product if it gave me a reaction.

THIS PRODUCT IS NOT MEANT TO BE USED DURING THE DAY.I SAW LESLIE HERSELF ( CREATER OF BARE MINERALS) SAY THAT THIS IS ONLY A NIGHT TREATMENT. WHEN YOU SLEEP, YOUR SKIN REPAIRS ITSELF AND THAT IS WEHEN YOU USE THIS PRODUCT. IT IS NOT DESIGNED TOIBEUSED DURING THE DAY. I USE THIS AN DLOVE IT. I USE IT BEFORE BED AND I WAKE UP WITH SOFTER SKIN. MINE LASTS 2 MONTHS, BUT I ONLY USE BEFORE BED. I DO NOT RECOMMEND USING DURING THE DAY SICNE IT IS NOT DESIGNED AS SUCH. OUR SKIN IS NOT IN REPAIR MODE DURING THE DAY. SMAE GOES FOR MOST RETINOLS AND OTHER EXCELLENT ANTI-AGING TREATMENTS. YOU ARE WASTING YOUR MONEY IF YOU USE IN THE AM AS WELL.

Can it be used with retinol?
I've come to love using a pure retinol treatment at night followed by a moisturizer. Could I fit this night serum into that routine or replace the retinol with it every other night maybe?

Yes. There is nothing in this that would aggravate the skin or make it more sensitive to the sun. I use the night treatment which has retina-a with it and it is just fine.

how does this compare to Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair serum?
I hear that the EL product has a cult of followers but i don't think there's anything that special about the ingredients and i'm not keen on the company itself and its bazillion formulations all promising to be the one. anyone feel, that this serum is supposed to do what the EL product claims, be an all-in-one repairer of damaged skin? thanks!

I personally do not like EL products much. Yes, it does give you the instant smooth feeling but it is because the product is full of silicon. Your skin may look smoother but it is not because of the improvement of the skin texture. It is because your skin is coated with silicon. Many skincare fanatics in Japan avoid EL.

I agree with you about Estee Lauder, this is way better, has a great feel, and it instantly makes you look moisturized. I was using this for about two weeks until I dropped it and it shattered on the floor. Just be careful of the glass container it comes in! Loved it though....

Is this for the neck too?
If it tightens the face as much as some say, I would think it would be great for the neck but there is nothing in the directions indicating it can be used on the neck.

I have always heard that whatever you put on your face should also be put on your neck. This serum does tighten your skin so I say why not?
