Love it! Feels amazing, no stinky smell, improves my wrinkles around my eyes…. And fantastic bang for the buck!
Will absolutely buy again. I have been looking for something to help clear my skin that is cruelty free and this has done the trick. I have tried so many serums that have helped, but not cleared my skin completely. This however, has cleared my skin and healed my dark scars from previous acne. 10/10 would recommend
initially it dried my skin even if with thin layer of jojoba oil , but after my skin got used to it (~ 1 month), it was fine. no scent. can’t tell if it improves wrinkles yet. I don’t use much, just 1 pump to avoid the dryness. Maybe that’s why I can’t tell if it improves wrinkles.
I’m really loving this nite serum. Does it mean it’s working well if I notice my skin almost peeling off in very tiny fine flakes? I think if this is happening that the serum is doing it’s thing. Totally love this product

This is really working for me! Dark spots have diminished significantly. Skin pealed after a week of use, but I should have started slow like the directions say. Now use every night before patting on moisturizer. Wake up with skin renewed!

Much stronger than I thought! My face is used to tretinoin, but my neck/chest are not. To be fair, I was a bit aggressive with application, applying each night for about a week. Suddenly I had what felt like raw scratches on my neck and a raw rash on my chest. I’m waiting for it to peel off/clear up, and it’s pretty uncomfortable. We’ll see how it looks once it clears up, but I’m assuming with that kind of response, the ingredients are quite active! When I start using it again, I will use it more sparingly and with a moisturizer.

I love Trader Joe’s!! But at age 67 I have never had one allergy in my life.
After applying the serum last night for the first time I woke up to what
looks like a burn, dark red & peeling skin, I’ll stick with their antioxidant gel facial serum
