Osmosis Correct 1 oz

I’m sorry to report that Osmosis Correct Skin Serum was not for me. In fairness, it had a lot to live up to as I had just tried and loved the Mad Hippie Vitamin C Serum ($34 in the shop), and finishing that up that made me eager to try something new.

Osmosis’ website touts this product as a "moderate activity serum for normal and/or aging skin" that will remodel and repair skin while building collagen. While I’m not sure what they mean by "moderate activity," I wouldn’t think that normal skin would need a $56 serum. And, on the other hand, aging skin would probably require something a bit more powerful.

Though it smelled nice, Osmosis Correct Skin Serum otherwise seemed rather ineffectual. It’s got a tacky, gel-like texture that provided insufficient hydration for me. I saw no anti-aging benefits from it, and found it difficult to wear under makeup due to its stickiness. I also saw no improvement in my skin's tone or texture. Overall, I can't see why anyone with normal skin would have an interest in investing in this product.

Unfortunately, after 30 days of daily usage, I didn’t see results anywhere close to resembling Osmosis' claims. Correct Skin Serum is not a horrible product, but it does seem superfluous in a market where some products actually deliver results.
