Strongest points
The scent and the small amount you have to use
Weakest points
No great results
Summary
With a very reasonable price and a great scent this should be a winner and it almost is. Given that you only use the tiniest of amounts (a full pump is far far too much) 30 ml will last you a long time. The scent was so familiar to me but I could not place it at all until I realised it reminded me of Aussie Miracle Colour Insurance Leave In Conditioner which has wild peach extract in it. For my skin it was a little too moisturising and felt a little uncomfortable on my skin. I appreciate that as a serum this is to be expected so it wasn't a problem but overall the impact I was expecting didn't really emerge in use. A really nice product that gave me a smile when ever I smelt it and a very frugal serum and so a good price. It ends up being a sort of maybe product for me rather than a definite win but a fantastic alternative at a good price.

Summary
I was delighted to receive this product for the trial, as I am a bit of a serum fanatic, and will never go without this kind of product. The packaging is reminiscent of Aboriginal Dream Time painting, which I found to be very attractive and appealing. The bottle of serum itself is a useful pump dispenser which delivers cleanly and it light and very portable. I comes with a clear plastic cap which protects the nozzle from dust when not in use.

From the first pump of the dispenser, the product appeared dark in colour, translucent and gel-like. It has a very pleasant rose-like fragrance which is not overwhelming. I looked in the details and can find no rose in the ingredients, so I believe the fragrance must come from the kakadu plum it contains. One pump is enough to cover the entire face and part of the neck with generous application. I used two pumps morning and evening to cover neck, decollete and the backs of my hands too. After application my skin texture changed instantly to feel softer and more hydrated. I definitely felt that the product had a lifting effect on my skin after application. The light fragrance was an added bonus for me, but it is not intrusive in any way. I am pleased to know that my skin is receiving the nutrients from this product to help it to regenerate and maintain good health, without needing to use harmful chemicals or testing on animals.

I am astonished that this product is so modestly priced and I would definitely consider purchasing it on a regular basis.

I would love to try this product and give it a review. I strongly believe in using natural products on my dry skin and I believe that vitamin C keeps skin looking young.

Amazing, new, fresh product. I'd really like to offer my opinion after trying a sample.
It is quite expensive so it makes sense to use a sample before hand to test that you like it.
