This is the first product I have ever tried from Meta Foret, and I like it so far. I’ve only been using it for about 10 days, so it is a little early to determine the long term results. I like how Niacinamide is the 2nd ingredient and arbutin (high up on ingredient list) that both help to brighten skin & reduce hyperpigmentation. The serum absorbs quickly into the skin, with an initial tacky feeling that dries down within a few minutes. I found that using a couple of drops & patting it onto my skin helped it to absorb a little quicker. There is a slightly cooling effect & my skin feels very smooth and hydrated after application. I’ve noticed slight brightening & some improvement in overall tone with less redness. I have a little scar around my nose which has faded slightly & I have not had any issues with irritation while using this serum. So far I have only used it on my face, but it can be used on other parts of the body to treat skin blemishes. I think this would be a great product for all skin types and the serum is priced reasonably as well.
