True to its name!

This one actually seems to be working. A little bit of background: I am a 35 year old female with combination + acne-prone skin. Now, I have been very diligent with my self-care regime, which includes eating right, sleeping well, regular work-outs, along with a few skin care basics. In combination with an AHA/BHA facial mask I have been using once a week, this serum is working its magic.

Usage: I have gradually moved up to using this serum (left overnight) once a week. I started off, as instructed by the Deconstruct team, by leaving this serum on for 10 mins and then washing it off, moving up to 30 mins, then an hour, and then eventually leaving it overnight.

PM: I start off by washing my face with a mild cleanser, pat my skin completely dry, and then apply about 3 - 4 drops of this serum to my face and neck. Once it's absorbed completely, I immediately slather on a night-time non-comedogenic moisturiser containing bio-retinol, vitamin E, and niacinamide mixed with a drop or two of pure squalane oil.
AM: Wash face with mild cleanser -- apply this serum -- top it up with a non-comedogenic oil-free moisturiser mixed with 2 drops of pure squalane oil -- layer up with a good sunscreen.

Note: As stated above, I am only using this once a week. All other days I apply the Deconstruct 2% Hyaluronic Acid + 1 % Niacinamide serum in the AM and PM, which works absolutely brilliantly for me.

Results as observed over the last 8 weeks approximately: The appearance of pores on my nose and the surrounding facial skin has reduced drastically, to the point where it's almost invisible. I don't see blackheads anymore. I do see a couple of whiteheads here and there, but compared to where I was 8 weeks ago, it's next to nothing.

Overall, I am super happy with the results both the serums seem to be delivering.

After a month of using it my skin has clearly showed the results. Using 4 times a week is good for my skin. My skin is smoother with a little glow

Pore control serum

This is the first time a serum has actually worker for me from day 1.I usually give up hope as my skin is too sensitive and nothing really suits me. But this serum got rid of all the small bumps on my skin and also I can visible reduction in my dark spots. Im actually amazed by the speed with which this pore control serum works. When I get a new pimple or small bumps it goes away the next morning after applying this serum the night before.I can go on writing as that is how this serum has done wonders for me:)
