EmerginC Multivitamin + Retinol Serum has made a cocktail of basic, healthy ingredients for the skin. It is helpful towards getting a healthy face, but perhaps overdressed with its fancy bottle and clear gel with little colored balls encapsulated inside.

I expected more from a product that costs $79. At least, I expected something. It just didn't do anything. I applied it as directed, but my skin didn't seem to feel different, smoother, moisturized, or anything else.

The green tea, retinol, vitamins A, B, C, E, F, H are healthy and important, don't get me wrong. I just didn't find hydration, environmental protection or reduced signs of aging. This product is certainly not something I would use or buy.

Marta adds: there is a second bottle out there with a reader, so check back in to see if it gets better marks.
