This formula has a very thin soft texture that spreads and absorbs easily, so it's very pleasant to use. it's slightly hydrating, unscented and doesn't leave a tacky feel at all. I mainly use it for the antioxidant properties to keep future damage at bay and maintain healthy skin, but it's not going to reverse any imperfections drastically. its a good supplemental serum for ur skincare routine. I also love that the bottle is an airless pump! it's the best packaging in my opinion because it gets every last drop and doesn't waste any product that gets stuck at the bottom of traditional dip tube pump bottles.
I have high hopes for this serum, because I've already tried so many serums and so far it's a hit-or-miss game for me, as I do have sensitive rosacea and perioral dermatitis-prone skin and only can use fragrance-free products for sensitive skin. After using it for the first time no redness occurred which I'm pretty happy about, as most serums are causing my cheeks to go red. Consistency is water-like, I can't feel it on my face and it absorbs instantly.
A calming gel with a gentle scent and cooling effect. Works well on sensitive skin, if anyone has any concern about that. Reliable price for the size of it still. Haven't really witnessed its miracle yet ...
I first tried this serum in the Benton Deep Green Tea Trial Kit. I thought I liked it from the one time I got to use it, so decided to get the larger version when it went on sale. I appreciate that this comes in a pump, since the trial kit dispenser was very awkward to get out and it ended up spilling when stored. However, the pump doesn't work very well either, and the serum ended up leaking out as I was trying to dispense the product. The serum has a watery consistency but didn't spread very well, so I ended up having to use much more than for other brands. Considering the small bottle and the price, this is a major point against this product. The serum is light but has a bit greasy feeling when first put on, but is soon absorbed fairly well into the face. There is no scent at all. The ingredients seem fine, but I haven't looked closely into them. I use this along with the cleanser, toner, and lotion from Benton. Although, Benton has been quality so far from the products I've used, I won't be repurchasing this serum.
