Doesn't live up to brand claims

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), 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.

Ingredients in Osmosis Correct Skin Serum: Harmonized Water, Ceteareth Olivate (From Olive Oil), Organic Almond Oil, Phosphatidylcholine, Niacinamide, Yellow Corn Alcohol, Caprooyl Tetrapeptide-3, Glycerin, L-Lactic Acid, L-Hydroxyproline, Butylactyl Cetearate (Vegetable Source), 1,3 Beta Glucan, Cetyl Palmitate (From Olive Oil), Trans Retinal (0.5%), R-Lipoic Acid, Chlorella, Epidermal Growth Factor, GHK Copper Peptide, Dextran, Lecithin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Potassium Sorbate, Xanthan, Essential Oil Blend

    I love Osmosis Correct! Since this is a retinol, I use it every other night on it's own. It has noticeably smoothed my skin. My skin tone and clarity are much improved. My pores have practically disappeared. Regular use has even cut down hormonal breakouts to almost nothing. I really can't imagine not using it. Of course, retinol products are not for everyone. However, if you do need one, this is a good one to try.

    I use Correct every other night. It has improved the texture of my skin so much! It is sticky and shiny - I cannot imagine using it under makeup during the day. I have super sensitive skin, but had no reaction to this product. I really dislike the smell however. I would recommend Correct, if you are looking to make your skin smoother and more even toned.
