Despite a very nice ingredients list, this serum failed to deliver significant anti-aging benefits


Has a very pleasant texture and smell


No visible improvement after almost three months of use

I tested the Red Flower Illuminating Rose Collagen Renewal Face Serum because it seemed to be exactly what I had been searching for. The serum is 100% botanical and packs a big punch with a ton of wonderful ingredients. It’s a rich source of vitamin A and promises to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by promoting cellular renewal. At 36 years old with a normal skin type, I don’t have any wrinkles, but I do have fine lines around my eyes and lines on my forehead because I tend to talk with my eyebrows raised. For the last few years, I have been using all natural/organic anti-aging products, but I just felt like they lacked a certain punch. I stumbled upon the Truth In Aging website and am so thankful I did! The Red Flower Illuminating Rose Collagen Renewal Face Serum’s description says it “supports collagen and cellular renewal while boosting elasticity; helps prevent fine lines and wrinkles” — just what I need to combat those fine lines around my eyes and especially my forehead lines!

I decided to only test the product on one half of my face every morning and evening so I could really see if there was a difference. Upon application, this serum is very luxurious, almost like putting liquid gold on your face. Being a rose-based serum, it also smells heavenly. According to the serum’s description, rose oil is full of fatty acids, which provide instant and long-lasting moisturization. I felt the application was a bit heavy — I kept adjusting how much I used, which ended up being about three or four drops on half of my face. With no makeup on, I was pretty shiny four hours later — maybe some would call this radiant. As described, this serum definitely has anti-inflammatory properties to soothe irritation. When first applying, I had a mild irritation on my upper lip from my first time waxing there. After a few days, the irritation on the half of my lip with the serum was completely gone while the other half remained irritated. At this point I may have cheated a bit and used the serum to heal the other half of my upper lip, as well!

Unfortunately, after almost three months of use, I honestly could not tell a bit of difference between one half of my face and the other. My fine lines around my eyes and my forehead looked the same on both sides. I even asked a couple of girlfriends to guess which half I was using it on — one couldn’t tell and one guessed the wrong half! While I love the ingredients in this serum, for the price and results, I don’t see myself including this in my regular beauty regime.

    I agree totally with the above review! The serum smells amazing and is full of natural ingredients, yet I have seen quicker, more powerful results with less expensive serums...though I tried this one seeking a more botanical blend for my face. After 2 months, there has been no change, almost worsening in my forehead wrinkles and lines around my eyes. I also have somewhat oily skin and feel very " radiant" hours after application.
