I've got hold of a bottle of this in the christmas gift set, and can't decide whether to use it or list it on ebay.

Is it really as great as is claimed?

Will I notice a difference with one bottle or do I have to use it for an extended period of time to see any difference? Will I see any difference anyway?

I'm a bit skeptical of all the claims, would like to hear some real feedback from those who have used it.

It's decent, mostly helps with dehydration (so requires continuous use to maintain effect), not miraculous, grossly overpriced. Some people break out horribly from it. It stood alone in the market for quite some time, there's plenty of other cheaper and more effective alternatives to it out there now.

If you'd never buy it at RRP and have no intentions of doing so even after getting on well with a sample I'd ebay it.

I like it, the bomb is the eye cream version, I've repurchased it a few times. I've only used the facial one as a GWP but I like it.

I really like it, it makes my skin look generally better but in a way that I'm not sure why.

It lasts for ages too. Even the little bottles. You can buy the little sample size ones in Boots now too if you don't want to buy off eBay.

I've just started using this again and I've noticed that initial glow and my skin definitely looks smoother. However, the reason I stopped using it was because I stopped seeing a difference, so like a lot of beauty products, your skin can get used to it and the effects aren't as impressive.

In your shoes though, I'd at least give it a go. You've got it already, right? Unless you've got really sensitive and\or oily skin, then why not?

Erm, no idea why that sent twice confused

BusterGonad - was it the night eye cream that you used?

How good do you think it is? Is it really worth the money?

I don't spend big bucks so to buy any i need to know it works!I NEEED to know grin

I think it is great. Lasts ages. And then I just use a very cheap moisturiser on top. My grand mother used it and she was stunningly beautiful at 96 when she died.

But, I do think genetics and lifestyle is the biggest factor. I don't believe any skin cream is going to work miracles. However my skin does look good and I use it!

I swear by it. When I feel aggrieved at the cost I have a break but I see Tge difference straight away. I'm on about my 12th bottle. It makes my skin plumper, smoother and more moist. I put any old moisturizer over the top.

I love it. I'm 35, good skin, large pores but no real wrinkles or problem areas and my skin just looks more refined and polished when I use it. No idea what it does, it's that indescribable 'something'.

it's very good.

Some people break out horribly from it.

<raises both hands>

It gave me a lot of spots after about 2 weeks of use. Such a shame as I had hoped for amazing things but even in those 2 break out free weeks I just wasn't that impressed. It was ok but nothing really noticeable. For the price, even if you're not one to have problems with spots from products, I'd have a look around for something else first.

I don't have any wrinkles so thought perhaps that was why I didn't see results but looking at the above posts, that doesn't seem to be the case so I maybe needed to use it for longer. As it is, it now sits, looking fancy, on my shelf and not much else.

Realised you already have it. In that case, as it seems to be a marmite product, I'd try it anyway. Unless you're prone to break outs then don't see you have much to lose. You might be one of the ones who'll rave about it.

This is supposed to be a good dupe. It's a Korean brand. I use the Korean version & I do really like it. I'm on my second bottle. BTW I buy from eBay, have found it cheaper there if you check the seller s star rating carefully. iherb is a great online seller & shipping cost is not too bad.

I'm currently using that Korean dupe and it is really nice, it has replaced my trusty Chanel Hydra Beauty serum.

I don't love it, I didn't notice any difference in my skin and felt I should have for the price.
