acne

gave me super bad acne and made my skin greasy everyday i didn’t start using it about a month after i got it and it just cause my skin to break out so bad

- Sephora User

made me break out really bad but already threw out the box :(

- Sephora User

uneven skintone

doesn't even out skin

towards the end i have more breakouts, does not correct dark spots -- i know that isn't listed as a benefit but again, the sephora associate said it was better than the truth serum because it had added benefits

- Sephora User

i have combination skin with occasional breakouts that leave dark spots and i don't have large pores but they are visible, this product was recommended to me by a sephora associate claiming it worked better than ole henriksen truth serum which i had been using and love, so i thought hey if this is better why not

Calming, hydrating, smoothing as promised

I’m 45, with textured skin from roseacea, redness, and large pores as well as fine lines and a few actual wrinkles. My goal is to feel confident going foundation-free, and this product definitely makes that possible.Feels tacky going on, and dries really fast so you have to work fast from the moment you put the dropper-full on your hands, but once dry thete’s no tacky feeling - just soft, hydrared skin.I tested it for ten days using several samples of this from the Wonderskin Beauty Offer, because at $62/30ml, it’s more expensive even than La Mer lotion so i wanted to be sure!I stopped after 10 days, and i thought my moisturizer stopped working - nope, the Snow Mushroom serum had just been doing the heavy lifting and boy did i miss it!The only thing i’d say is, not sure if im getting any long term benefit... unlike my #IT Bye Bye Under Eye cream, which even if i skip a few days i still have depuffed eyes and no dark circles, my skin returned to its default state immediately the day i stopped using this. So, a full bottle is likely the onky way to really know. But.... it does deliver on what it promises on terms of hydration and smoothing and plumping and, most important to me, calming. Less

Research backed ingredients, noticeable results!

This product was exactly what I needed. My skin was dry, thin and tired looking, new wrinkles making an entrance, puffy eyes, etc. It just was not the skin that I loved myself in. I had been really busy with the academic grind for several years and neglected basically all self care routines. I graduated and was finally able to stock up on moisturizer so I grabbed some clinique and was then approached by a nice young man working in the store. I told him that I needed something to plump up my skin. He recommended this serum, I can't even remember all the details he gave me about the ingredients, but it is supposed to have anti-inflammatory capabilities, which as a biochemistry and molecular biology graduate, I felt the need to do a literature review. The first paper I found was examining the effects of a compound extracted from the snow mushroom, they found it to have neuroprotective and neurotrophic effects on cells. This may or may not be applicable to the epidermis but still shows that it could have a positive effect at the cellular level, from there I found several other papers describing the physiological activities of several polysaccarides from the snow mushroom, including immunomodulation and induction of tumor necrosis factor. In addition it has hyaluronic acid and a tripeptide which are ingredients that I had used here and there previously, and liked the results. Those two also have scientific literature to support their efficacy.Bottom line: This product, along with daily moisturizing with Clinique, completely transformed my skin in less than a month. From looking unhealthy and tired(which is basically true) to looking plump and even, with a noticeable reduction of wrinkles. I am only 30 so they are new wrinkles, but I was impressed by the improvement. I am loving my skin right now, which is great for boosting my confidence when presenting information to people. Less

Do your research.

Alright, so first of all I should've done my own research before purchasing this product. I have combination skin with occasional breakouts that leave dark spots and I don't have large pores but they are visible, this product was recommended to me by a Sephora associate claiming it worked better than Ole Henriksen truth serum which I had been using and LOVE, so I thought hey if this is better why not?! I'll splurge! I finished my bottle today and I have to say I'm quite disappointed. Again, I should've done my research and I could've returned the product but being that you don't typically see results until about 3 months in I decided to use it all the way through because MAYBE it'll start working towards the end. I was wrong. Towards the end I have more breakouts, does not correct dark spots -- I know that isn't listed as a benefit but again, the Sephora associate said it was BETTER than the truth serum because it had added benefits. I did not notice reduction of fine lines, no brightening, nor did my pores get any smaller. In my honest opinion this serum just felt like water on my skin, absorbed quickly, and all in all it was just an extra step in my skincare routine with no benefits and the price is way too high. I wish the associates paid attention to my concerns instead of trying to push a new in store product. Less

HANDS DOWN NEW FAVORITE!!!!

I am in love with this serum, it is so light weight and blends right into the skin without feeling oily or greasy at all!!! It helps to promote cell renewal and minimizes my pores,I'm all for it!! It has definitely reduced fine lines and wrinkles and just in 2 weeks my pores have literally shrunk! I used it for a makeup primer today in 100 degree weather and it held up my makeup all day, and helped it go on so smoothly!!! NEW HOLY GRAIL,YAY!!!! Usually in the sun I would have been so much more oily but I think this has balanced my skin out so well and it's so moisturized now that I don't have so much extra oils producing because my skin is finally where it should be!!

Great for Sensitive Skin - staple in my routine

I love Volition’s Snow Water Serum. No irritating ingredients or fragrance, and a little goes a long way. It works great for my highly sensitive skin and helps reduce my redness and inflammation. I use this after applying Moon Juice Beauty Shroom Exfoliating Acid Potion (the only exfoliating product that I have ever been able to use without causing a rosacea flare-up). My last product is Farmacy’s Honey Drop Lightweight Moisturizer.This combination has been a Godsend to me! I no longer ‘have’ to wear foundation to cover redness and blotches. In fact, I haven’t worn foundation in over a year. For those with rosacea and/or sensitive skin, I know you’ll understand that freedom. It took me many expensive years (both confidence and money) of trial and error to get to this place and I’m SO happy to have found this product. Less
