I bought this because I was hoping it would be like a combination of BR Placenta, iribiol and tissulaires. Since using it my skin has been balanced and I even got through my time of the month without a crazy breakout. The serum feels like a light oil or silk and it slides on the face easily - and it smells great, kind of like tea. My skin is sensitive, combo/dry, acne prone and I have had bad reactions to products in the past (even BR), but this worked great on my skin immediately with no irritation. It feels like a very soothing serum, even though it is tough on acne. In the winter my dry skin needs a little more hydration so I will pair it with a hydrating serum. I will repurchase the larger size next time.
