I was pleasantly surprised, shocked even. I decided to try the serum on my elbow first, instead of applying it to my face, and I saw a noticeable difference pretty much instantly. I’ve been using the serum consistently since. And it’s awesome!
Honestly, beyond the great results, the Formula 7 serum is just super convenient. It has replaced a variety of other products I’ve used because all of it comes in this one bottle (also comes out cheaper that way!).
I decided to give this a try this serum after seeing the ingredient list. It has a lot of the common ingredients you see in most other serums, but a few interesting ones that stood out to me. So I decided why not! Sure glad I went for it. This is my favorite serum now.
Serums are water-based in their delivery system, making them lighter than creams. Wash and pat skin dry. If you are going to use a toner, apply the toner before the serum. Apply a small amount to entire face, neck and decollete. Allow to dry. Can be used daily; can be used under make up. Follow with any of our moisturizers.
