Review: Lisa Hoffman Night & Day Vitamin A & C Serum

My thoughts and experience:  
The first time I tried this was when I received my first Beautyfix kit. I instantly fell in love with it because it was extremely moisturizing. Seeing as I have really dry cheeks, this was really helped keep them soft. I couldn't afford the full size of 1 fl oz (30ml) for $95, so I opted to get it again on my second Beautyfix kit. I received this 0.5 fl oz size in my kit.

The serum is inside a silver bottle. After using it about 2 weeks, the pump stops working. I had a really hard time getting product out, so I pulled open the top part of the pump. Come to find out, it's a very small pump which only reaches to 1/3 from the top of the product. I have to turn the bottle upside down and then pump for serum. I'm not sure if this is a known issue or if I have a defective bottle. But you know how usually things that pump have a tube that goes to the bottom of the bottle? Well this one doesn't have that. If I hadn't open the top, I would have just tossed the thing because I thought it was empty!

When you use the pump to get the product out, it comes clear, thick, and greasy. The serum is very rich. When applied on my face, it goes on smoothly. I rub my face a couple of times to let it absorb. It looks greasy on my face when applied, which is why I never use this during the day time. After about 10 minutes or so, it settles and I don't look oily anymore. It feels velvety smooth to the touch.

When I wake up, my face feels so soft, moisturized, non-greasy, and plump. I love it! If it was not for the expensive price tag on this, it would be part of my regular night routine. So right now, I just hope I will see it again on my next Beautyfix kit.


Retail Price: $95 for 1 fl oz (30 ml)

  1. No haven't tried it. The price is a little high, but if it makes my face soft, then I might consider it.

    1. my face has been smoother since using this serum :D

  2. I've tried it. It made my face look greasy too but by morning, my face looked great. Its a decent serum though I prefer lighter ones. Great post! No probs w/ pump

    1. I must have been unlucky twice:( I do love that it does wonders for me too
