This serum is not my favorite, but it's okay. I do like the dispenser.One squirt is enough to cover my face. The consistency is a runny liquid. I like the ingredients. It has an acidic, almost sour smell to it. That's often something I notice with products containing types of acid and this one does have Caprylyl Glycol, so that could be where the smell comes from. There are ingredients such as pink grapefruit peel oil, which I would assume smells better, but I don't detect it. It doesn't feel sticky or tacky. It absorbs quickly. When used on the back of my hand, I immediately see an improvement in the texture. The product description says it takes 90 days for cell turnover to see results, so I'm not there yet. My eyes and skin are sensitive and this doesn't irritate me. If it smelled better, I would probably like it more.
