To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I’ve used this product for some time now, but have always purchased directly from Ilia and am very familiar with the product. The serum i received is not past expiration per the box, but is thicker than normal and has an old, funky smell. I will be returning and will order directly from Ilia from now on.
This product was too light of color for me and also heavy on my skin. You aren't able to return it of you open it, but how else are you supposed to try it and see if it works for your color and also comfort? Never again. So long $46.00!
Number one it appeared very chalky and intensified my dry skin when I applied it to a freshly washed face as indicated in the instructions. I looked ghostly due to its chalky coverage. It didn’t look natural or improve my appearance. Perhaps it would be better for oily complexions. I even experimented and applied a light oil to my skin prior to application but it still looked like a chalky dry mask. I have been reading positive reviews but this was not my experience. Sorry.
I’m so sad my return window closed. I tried to love it for a while now because it’s so popular but: 1. It left my face shiny and greasy looking all day 2. Color wasn’t blending well 3. Made my skin react I really wish I could have my money back
