This serum is made from all of the right ingredients to give my skin a silky smooth appearance. I feel my skin tightening up shortly after I apply the serum. It goes on smoothly and is absorbed quickly into my skin, It has a hydrating effect, but I still apply a daily moisturizer since I live in a very dry climate. Once the serum is absorbed, I apply my moisturizer, then make-up and I am set for the day. With consistent use, I saw my skin improving in appearance. My pores seem smaller and my skin feels softer.
