Another reviewer mentioned the "weird pink color" and slimy texture as seeming old fashioned - Puncture an Astaxanthin supplement and that pink oil is what will come out! This natural carotenoid is what makes "good-for-you" Salmon pink. The Madre Labs serum smells like the real thing, too, so you know that it's definitely in here, ready to penetrate your skin! As for the slight sliminess, that's also from the oily texture of this antioxidant found in seafood. Now for my experience with it: I've dutifully tried all kinds of natural eye creams, vitamin A serums, etc; I never expected a serum I bought on sale to simply try out (for the rarity of astaxanthin in a skin cream) to have given my delicate eye area the positive experience this has. It definitely tightens, as other reviewers mentioned. If you don't like your skin feeling tight just use a dab. A little goes a long way. But my absolute favorite part: It instantly gives my face a youthful, natural, flowery glow. As if I've just powdered my face! It's lightweight, and although it's not an eye serum, I'm happily exchanging the high end intensive eye cream I've been using for a couple years for this now! At least you know a truly potent anti-aging nutrient is in this! (Astaxanthin also has amazing UV-protecting properties. I haven't gone out much in the sun yet to test if it helps topically.) Also, my old eye cream would occasionally give me a little permanent bump around the skin of my eye from clogging my pores, I suspect. This is a wonderful treat for the skin, and it just feels so summery! Superb work, Madre Labs!

I dislike this cosmetic. Not the natural cosmetic formulation i usually buy, i don't think this is a serum, it's a moisturising cream. You'll feel a better skin if you eat food with natural astaxanthin or caps.

I'm not sure if it's a allergic reaction but the cream give me a stingy and numbing sensation after applied on face. I'm not usually allergic to things but I'll stay away from this one.

Actually although this serum feels smooth, it has not made any difference at all to my facial skin. Oh well, still looking for the elusive wonder serum that will instantly transform my 65 year old sun damaged face to Nicole Kidman quality....Ha Ha Ha, you may say.....you should of stayed out of the sun...oh well, teenagers never listen.

Hmmm... now what is this and what is it good for? My face got slightly irritated. SO I discontinued. It seems that it might have some regenerative or peeling effect because of the antioxidants? But I want to avoid peeling or regeneration. Because even if it might make the skin look better right now I Believe it will mean skin ages quicker and you get addicted to these Products.

Until now I used SeboCalm serum which was much better. I tried this one because it was on sale, but I won't buy it again.
