Most Helpful Positive

Blown Away by this brand!

Lauren

I have never seen such great results in such a short amount of time prior to using Skinceuticals. I layer this over the CE Ferulic serum in the AM and the Resveratrol in the PM and my skin hasn’t never been smoother, more glowing or happy. I have fine lines, dehydration and pigmentation and this just helps so much. I also adore the texture, it’s gorgeous and a pleasure to use!

Most Helpful Criticism

Super effective... in the beginning only

Natalie

I purchased this after reading about it in Adore Beauty's skincare blog and thought this may help out with the grainy-like texture of my skin that I started to experience during the winter.

The first week of using this, day and night, I could simply tell you that this product was a miracle and did something incredible to the texture of my skin. My sister even noticed and said my face was looking extremely smooth and this was the only new product I introduced into my skincare routine at the time.

This was about to become my holy grail texture serum but after that week, I felt the texture of my skin start to feel and look grainy again and the serum had little to no effect on me that 2nd week all the way to the 4th week. Its like it goes through a climax of super effectiveness then just winds down and does nothing more.

I stopped using after 4th week and left it for a week to see what would happen. On the 6th week, I tried it again for the week - it did nothing at all.

There were no other new products I tried within this time, no different lifestyle factors that changed... nothing.

Im so disappointed that it could be like magic in a bottle the 1st week then just no effect afterwards whatsoever. For that reason, I will not re-purchase. I am a fair person and would still probably recommend as an option but not without telling the tale of my experience with it first.

I'm happy its worked for others, but I don't think this is worth my patience and money.

  2. Avoid your foundation picking up dry patches

    Trammie

    I have tried retinol products which always seems to dry out my skin and starts the peeling process very early on. I also noticed my makeup was picking up dry patches of skin. I use this serum on specific areas of the face to encourage natural exfoliation and smooth skin.

  4. Holey Smooth-Skin Moley

    Liz - Adore Beauty Staff

    Wow. Instant hero product status.

    I have rosacea and sensitive skin and exfoliating products are usually a gamble for me - some days they're fine, some days I wake up with tiny red pastules on my upper cheeks. Fun, right?

    This guy though - not a chance. Exfoliated. Plump. Hydrated. Smooth. Bright. You name the benefits of exfoliation and this lil buddy has my back.

    I'm getting married in 28 days and my routine is gonna be: cleanse, THIS, moisturiser, SPF. Not a single other product will touch my face, because NOTHING is as reliable as this bad boy.
  5. Still finding out what it does

    Swetha

    This review is a lot earlier than when you would normally expect to see a full review but in saying that I still like it . My skin is mostly in good condition with the occasional breakouts but texture has been driving me up the wall off late. I like this product as it helps to keep my skin moisturized for longer periods . I use this in conjunction with the skinstitut even blend serum as I love that serum and have seen how my skin has transformed using it .

    So here are some pointers :
    1) don’t use both the serums at the same time ( I learnt it the hard way with my scratching my face for a long time)
    2) use either one in the morning and the second one in the evening
  6. Seems to be working

    Amanda

    I’m extremely sensitive and I can use this.... I’ve had problematic skin that gets dry and irritated in places, and breaks out when I moisturise.

    I’ve been using this product daily for two weeks and my skin tone has evened out and the dryness has reduced. I use in combination with the skinceuticals gentle cleanser (and an occasional Cremorlab gentle exfoliant)... retexturing activator (evening) or CE Ferulic (morning) with the Phyto corrective gel on top.

    If my skin is dry I then use Cremorlab T.E.N. Fresh Water gel as a moisturiser.

    Jo

    This stuff is magic in a bottle. My skin has never been so clear ever! Been using for about 2 months everyday and my skin loves it so much. Just makes my skin look amazing.
  8. BUYING A NEW BOTTLE TODAY

    Shantel

    I love this product, not exactly what it does for my skin but absorbs really well, love the feeling of it and fits well into my routine. I know my skin is definitely benefitting from it, because when I stopped using it, my acne was more prominent and my acne scar (bumps) are decreasing in size slowly. Live for skinceuticals products.
  9. Pricey but worth it

    Lydia

    My skin’s texture has suffered after years of eczema and hormonal acne. I’ve accepted I will always have blackheads and need hydra facials to manage them.

    But after about 3 weeks of using this, the whole tone of my skin has improved and I can’t believe how much my acne scars have faded. For two years I’ve
  10. Miracle Worker!

    Vivienne

    My skin has never felt smoother or clearer! From the first day I started using the Skinceuticals Retexturing Activator I could feel and see a difference and improvement in my skin texture. A friend I hadn't seen for some months said in amazement that I look 15 years younger! (I choose to believe him :-)

    Bryn

    This stuff is amazing. Doesn’t dry me out at all like the blemish and age defends serum does, I’m still in love with that one too but I find that Im always gravitating towards this now as I find I get the same result without the over drying of my skin. This skin care line has completely changed my skin FINALLY! I’m about to turn 25 again (wink wink) at the end of April and my birthday wish was to have flawless skin and unless my lady time happens to fall around my birthday I’m on route to having that wish fulfilled. Oontz freaking oontz
  12. Amazing!

    annabelle

    I have combination skin and this serum has completely changed my skin. It has reduced the amount of blackheads and pimples i get whilst also greatly improving the overall texture of my skin. I have only been using this a few weeks and have seen great results. I would definitely recommend this.
  13. Exfoliation and mosturization in 1! Incredible results

    Lee

    This product is nothing short of amazing! I have combination dehydrated skin, but this is a product that will work for all skin types, even sensitive! It's incredibly concentrated and powerful, yet gentle and effective at smoothing out texture, small bumps, smoothing out the complexion, leaving it softer and more replenished and plump all day long! I use it every day in the evening and have not had any bad reactions to it. The thing that keeps me coming back to this is its ability to exfoliate the skin without irritation but at the same time hydrate my skin so deeply, which are my two biggest concerns, dehydration and texture! Honestly this product and the brand is such a game changer, I truly believe in this brand of medical grade skincare, truly real results that last! What I have noticed on top of all of its amazing benefits is keeping my skin so in balance and Im experiencing less breakouts even during the monthly hormonal periods. 1000% highly recommend this brand in general, ingredients that are straight to the point, no fillers and instant results that live up to or beyond their claims. My life has been changed since discovering this brand seriously!!
  14. Amazingly smooth skin - without downtime or irritation...

    Beauty Yoda

    An absolutely superb product which totally refines the skin whilst hydrating intensely. This super product helps to reunite the complexion with its own softness, smoothness and clarity. Used twice daily, after my SkinCeuticals antioxidants, the RETEXTURING ACTIVATOR makes the skin translucent, fresh and soft to the touch.

    Roughness, congestion and dehydration disappear, whilst the skin feels more youthful to the touch. Cannot live without this!
  15. Another awesome product from Skinceuticals

    Janette

    I use this with other Skinceuticals products, Phloretin and Retinol 0.5% and I love it! Makes my skin softer, brighter and hydrated. I can feel my skin’s overall texture and tone has significantly improved in such a short time. I can now say I can confidently go out without wearing makeup as I noticed my skin has become brighter, glowy and plump. It is expensive but intend to repurchase as I can see how effective it is in improving my skin.

    This is the perfect exfoliator. It's gentle, works really well and you just pop it on under your moisturiser after you've cleansed. My skin has never felt more moisturised or smooth after using this product. I had previously been using a scrub which ended up causing rough skin on my jaw line, after using the retexturing serum my skin has smoothed out and feels hydrated.
