This product evens out my skin tone and even cuts the oil. My skin looks great after 2 weeks. —Eric717, kiehls.com
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps with winkles tremendously I am on my second bottle of this after I first tried a sample. Normally I wouldn't pay this price for such a small amount however I use it most nights and mornings definitely on my forehead and in between the eyebrow fine lines and sometimes all over and it lasts me a long time. I also can see a difference immediately and when I use it consistently, I see a really major improvement in my fine lines and my skin looks more glossy and radiant. I have very dry skin, so I don't find it oily at all, in fact I sometimes feel like I need a bit more moisture at night (especially during winter in the Midwest) but often this is the only face cream I bring on a trip. Also like that the pump can click and lock so it's not going to explode in your bag and it only dispenses a small amount at a time. I usually use the traditional creamy cleanser in the white bottle from kiehls and find they work well together. Doesn't dry me out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this stuff so much! I never write reviews but felt compelled to share my 5 star review for this product. I have been using it for about 3 weeks and am quite amazed at the results. I have been applying it to some deep lines on my lower cheek. These have been here for years. I am AMAZED at how they have nearly disappeared. OMG. I wish I could bathe in this stuff! LOL I will be buying the LARGE size next time for SURE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Vitamin C serum on the market ....and I should know...I’ve tried probably 20 of them...from drug store cheapies to very expensive European brands. The only product that actually showed results!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zit-o-rama The morning after the first (and only) time I used this serum, I woke up with pimples the likes of which I haven't experienced in 30 years. I'm so disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible I normally don’t have problem skin but as of recent, I have been having issues of dry skin especially under where my mask sits. My skin is definitely the type to breakout when it’s dry. I went in looking for a daily moisturizer and came out with this on a whim. I applied a generous amount morning and night for maybe two days and my skin is completely transformed. My pores are almost nonexistent, my skin is glowing, and baby smooth soft. I’m the girl that reads reviews but NEVER leaves one. But I believe this product deserves some recognition. I did pair this with Tatcha rice wash facial scrub. Have normal face again! THANK YOU FOR THIS PRODUCT

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy Grail for fine lines! I got a large sample from Sephora and in just one week I have noticed a huge difference. Immediately after application I feel like it tightens my skin and as the weeks progressed it is even more noticeable. Just bought the 100ml bottle and excited to add this to my daily routine for good!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bit greasy Have tried the sample of this a few times, but every time it feels greasy, doesn't absorb well and the smell is too strong for me. So I opt not to purchase it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Oily texture! I'm 3 month into this bottle and i still have some left but i decided to stop using it. The serum has an oily texture that does not absorb into the skin, every single product i applied after feel like it just sitting on top of it. I might consider using it again if they change the texture in the future.
