Rated 4 out of 5 by Shukree from Takes a while to see results I first tried the Resurfacing Compound when I received a mini sample bottle. Then I was gifted a full 50ml bottle from a friend. It is a serum that you would apply after cleaning and before moisturising twice a day. It is light, quickly absorbed and easy to apply under face cream or face oil. Whilst I didn’t notice an immediate result, after a week or so I could definitely notices my skin felt more hydrated, smoother and clearer. It did not irritate my skin at all, it improved my skin tone and it is now a serum I use daily.

Rated 2 out of 5 by FranStarling from Not worth the money I received a 10ml sample of this and have been using it every morning for the past month. A little does go a long way but sadly I don't think it's worth the price! I can't say I noticed any difference in my skin, in fact it was a little irritated so I wouldn't recommend this product to someone of my age (early 30s).

Rated 5 out of 5 by VanityPear from Impressive, consistent results I absolutely love this product. I received a generous sample of this as part of a Space NK gift and noticed a difference just a day or two after I started to use it daily. I only apply it in the morning, wait a couple of minutes and then apply my daily oil and moisturiser. I have had a very similar experience to other users: this product has helped to control hormonal breakouts and has helped to minimise shallow scarring from previous breakouts. It also smoothed out fine lines. While the product does leave a residue on the skin, this is only temporary, and my other products work well with it. The downside is the price tag, but I am very impressed, so will be repurchasing. It's currently on my wish list.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jaylees from Not worth the price I've been using a sample of this for about a month now and can't see any changes in my skin whatsoever. I'm not really sure what it was meant to do but other than feeling really nice on my skin I can't see any difference. It's a little disappointing but given the price I don't think I would've purchased the full size product anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ASD from Another winner... Another winner from U Beauty. After being impressed by their moisturising lotion, I trued this and its a little miracle in a bottle. There are a lot of exfoliating serums out there and it all depends what works for you but if you use this twice a day for a couple of weeks, you will see an improvement in your skin. I did anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ciara90 from Wonder serum for me! I bought this after seeing it highly recommended by the esthetician Melanie Grant. I purchased the 30ml size a month ago and it is the only serum I have been using since in my routine, I apply one pump in the morning and two pumps in the evening (the extra pump to really cover my décolleté), after I cleanse and then I follow up with moisturiser and an SPF during the day. It has worked wonders on my skin! I had been suffering quite badly with hormonal acne the last few months and this has really helped minimise my break outs and speed up the healing time as well. This is also the first product that I have ever noticed actually reduce lines, the lines on my forehead have definitely become less obvious in the month of using it. Plus on top of that my skin feels tighter and with an added glow. For me this has been a real miracle serum and completely worth the very large price! I have purchased the Hydrator from U Beauty and am excited to try them alongside each other.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sarahlou from Not Sure Have been using this product for a few weeks day and night. Found that after the first couple of uses my skin had a really nice glow. However as time has progressed I haven’t seen any other benefits of this product on my skin. It feels like it temporarily tightens the skin on application but that’s it. Not a repurchase for me especially at the price point!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katrine_90 from Such incredible glow! I had two generous samples of this so I could try it every day for nearly a month. I combine it with Bader´s rich cream and face oil (yes, the price of this routine makes me want to cry) and the glow I wake up to in the morning is UNREAL! I´ve never seen my skin look so glowy. When I first put the serum on, it feels a bit sticky and just as it dries in, it feels like my face is dry/tightening. That only lasts for a couple of minutes and then it´s normal again. 1 1/5 pumps is enough for my face and neck. It really delivers on every aspect stated.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bath lover from Far too pricey! I received an extremely generous sample of this as a GWP and have been using it morning and night recently. It definitely does tighten and firm skin, however, for the huge price tag, I’d expect more, in fact I’d expect miracles! I know it has a lot of key acids/ingredients if you’re a skin junkie, but I just like things that make me feel good and I feel are good for my skin. This has an unpleasant smell and it kind of dries my skin out. I also haven’t noticed much difference with wrinkles. A little does go a long way, but it is still far too expensive for me to justify.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nat d from Not convinced I received this as a sample, which was a generous size so I’ve managed to use it for a couple of weeks. I am not enjoying it and am looking forward to finishing it so I can move on! I couldn’t believe the price of it either. It makes me skin feel unnaturally tight. I’ve noticed getting roll off since using it, despite exfoliating and using a mask twice a week. Might be a coincidence but my skin just doesn’t feel good. The one thing I think it has helped is my enlarged pores. I definitely won’t be buying.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Vixen from Hmm I know lots of people love this but honestly i've been using it religiously and it has had very little impact on my skin (which given can get oily and congested) i personally think Space NK offers some great alternatives and my advice would be to get some good genes by sunday reily as this made a much bigger difference to my skin

Rated 2 out of 5 by MMK from Resurfacing Compound I was really excited to try this and received a generous sample that lasted for more than a week's use. On the first application it smells pleasant and not too strongly scented, and is of a runny consistency. From the ingredient list I have had great expectation, however having used this for a week it has not really changed my skin much. I have combination skin with some acne scarring and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation on the cheeks, otherwise have no issues with photoageing. Perhaps this would better suit others but not me and I will not be making the full purchase especially given the price, definitely going back to GG!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Setter from All inclusive! If you read the ingredients, this serum includes almost all popular active components. It's hard working all purpose serum! My skin was amazing with it! Texture of my skin have never been better! Now I use the second bottle of it! The price makes me cry...

Rated 4 out of 5 by jojocora from Good Serum I have really enjoyed using this product after receiving a generous sample size in a recent gift with purchase. I found that this product absorbed well into my skin and left it feeling soft and glowy without looking oily or triggering any sensitivity or breakouts. I would recommend this product to friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frenchy from So Good! I received a very generous sample in a Space NK gift. I was able to use it for three weeks twice a day (one pump only) and with eye cream an moisturizer and that was it. The results are amazing. First I liked that I did not have x serums to apply and that it was a all in one formula, then my skin which was already in a great condition felt completely revived and healthy and smooth etc. I can see why you would want to invest and streamline your routine. What a good product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by EllexBelles from All in one I have combination-acne prone skin. This product is amazing at brightening dark post acne marks and reducing visible pore size. It's a gel, so in warmer weather I used it alone after toning so as to not water it down with other products. I normally use an essence, oil and moisturiser and I missed doing a full routine but if you don't enjoy skincare and just want results, this is amazing

Rated 5 out of 5 by ZsaZsa89 from Great results after two weeks I received two large samples of the resurfacing compound over Christmas. I was initially a little apprehensive to try it, especially in the morning - I’ve never used a resurfacing product and it contains retinol. But I decided to give it a go and followed the instructions, using each morning and evening on freshly cleansed skin followed by moisturiser once fully dry. The product has a watery gel consistency and doesn’t smell particularly nice, but it doesn’t smell bad either. I noticed a brightening effect to the skin straightaway, and after 5 or so days I started to notice some dry skin patches. In particular, a blocked pore which has led to a lump on my nose started peeling, and looks a little reduced in size. After using for a week and a half I started to see quite a few small spots, which is unusual for me, but these have now disappeared after two weeks. My skin now feels smoother, firmer, clear and hydrated. I really feel that this product is changing my skin, in a really good way. It’s expensive though so I’m going to move onto the second sample and finish that before deciding if I’ll repurchase. Hopefully I’ll continue to see great results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ALouD from Great results I love this serum. I have sensitive skin and I am not used to using retinol. I didn’t know much about this product & I’ll admit I don’t love the packaging as I didn’t feel it was massively clear what the product would do. Anyway I persevered and wow - I use this once a day in the daytime under my moisturiser and sunscreen and it’s made a huge difference to the brightness texture and pigmentation of my skin. It doesn’t sting at all and it’s very mild so I’ve had no adverse effects from it. Would definitely repurchase.

Rated 2 out of 5 by lizzyboo79 from A nope from me. I was looking forward to giving this a go. I got a 10ml sample size in my gift box but it wasn’t for me. The first day of using it, I only used it once a day, not twice, my skin looked soft and gooey. The second day of using it my skin broke out and became irritated and triggered perioral dermatitis. I really liked the sound of this product, the price tag not so much. If my skin hadn’t reacted the way it had I can see the draw to a product that does multiple things, it’s just not for my skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Annett from All in one I found several deluxe-size miniatures of this serum in GWP this fall, so I had a great opportunity to evaluate the effectiveness of the product. I must admit that I liked the serum - it moisturizes the skin well and evens the tone. However, I do not like the concept of mixing all the actives in one product - I prefer to choose myself what to apply to the skin depending on the problem, so most likely I will not repurchase. The serum is perfect for those who don't like a lot of jars in their bathroom.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JenX from Other than... ....the polysorbate 20 being high up on the ingredients list, should be great despite the evidence of sense organ toxicity. I don’t know about you, but I’m not going to risk that on my face. Now if it’s worth the risk to you and you find that it works great, fabulous and good for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CYH from No irritation I received a generous sample of this in a GWP. I've been using the product for a couple of weeks twice daily and have been pleasantly surprised that I have experienced no breakouts or irritations considering all the actives. I usually have to cycle retinol, glycolic and vit C products depending on how my skin responds to them as I seem to be particularly sensitive. I haven't had a problem with this, and my skin has looked clearer and smoother. Can't comment on firming as I have not reached the age where this is a concern yet! Lovely product, hefty price tag. But if it works and you can afford it, it's a great purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DLVLK from Surprisingly good I received this in a couple of Advent Calendars and GWP, and I have to be honest that had they been clearer on the packaging that it contained retinol, I would have avoided it like the plague because my dry sensitive skin normally reacts badly to retinol ... but actually it was fine with this one, using it twice a week. I don’t know if my skin is dramatically good enough to justify the price, but given how many other products cause problems, I would consider getting another full size one because it genuinely does seem to smooth my forehead a little.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ika from WoW! Love it! Ok, i agrée that it’s very expensive and I would have never bought it without trying. Fortunately I had 2 deluxe versions and could try it for about a month or so... and all I can say that it’s great! It works! After about a week of use my skin is smoother and my rosacea is less noticeable and old marks and scarring seem to fade away slowly. Now I have no choice but to buy a full size...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lolalosell from My new hero product I’m in my early 30s but still suffer from breakouts, mixed with eczema, my skin can be red and sensitive. I also want to keep pores small and wrinkles ironed out...! I was blown away with this product. I find many resurfacing products too harsh, which dries out the skin, which in turns makes things more inflamed. This is gentle enough to use twice a daily and I notice a difference almost immediately. So good I even bought for my 65yo father (who is also a fan of skincare) he suffers from oiliness, large pores, blackheads and wrinkles and he loves it just as much as me!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Milalilu from Works well but expensive I got the small version in the advent calendar and used it for several weeks before my moisturiser evening and morning. It’s quite sticky when you apply it, then it dries. I saw some positive effects - it felt like a had not as many breakouts. I cannot say that my lines on my forehead got better (which was the case with other acid products) or that there was a big change in my pores. Overall ok but I would stick to my other product of similar type.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Maryna Zhukavets from Workhorse An interesting serum, it does a lot of what is stated but not all! My sensitive dry skin accepted it well, did not cause irritation, does not roll, does not conflict with other treatments. For dry skin, it is better to apply a nourishing cream with one serum on top, it is not comfortable, there is no moisture. It exfoliates the skin well, evens out the relief, has a good effect on acne, lightens the spots. The son with acne was very suitable. In general, I liked it, does not work miracles, but he is a workhorse. The price is not entirely clear, I will definitely take the full size but at a discount, with a good discount.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Yasminaa440 from Definitely firming but is NOT a replacement for other serums This came as a very generous sample in the Beauty Box gift with purchase. This was the first time i had heard of this product and this brand; the packaging is plain which is fine (good even) but reading the box alone, it wasn't entirely clear what this was supposed to do. I read some reviews here and looked it up on the internet and it seems to have a large following as well as being hailed as a replacement for other serums. I have used it after cleansing on clean/dry skin and followed the instructions. What I will say, perhaps in it's favour if this is what you want, is that it DEFINITELY has an instant firming effect. However, in terms of hydration/resurfacing etc - I've not seen/felt a difference. My skin feels taut and clean and clear after using it so I follow up with a good moisturiser. I think this is probably a great product depending on your skin type and expectations so i will say that I would recommend it, just not for me. Definitely test it out before you buy as it not a cheap skincare mistake to make.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Becky1712 from Really makes a difference to skin I received a sample size of this in a recent promotion and have just bought the full size bottle. I noticed a difference almost immediately to my skin, and can see red marks fading. It hasn't helped prevent my regular breakouts - yet - but it is definitely making a difference to overall skin quality, and I can't wait to see the results from using it longer term.

Rated 3 out of 5 by The Holey Cheese from Good but not quite enough to justify the price tag Created by skincare-obsessed Tina Craig (also known as Bag Snob, one of the OG fashion influencers), U Beauty's Resurfacing Compound is designed to replace all of the serums in your routine. Great for a lazy gal like me. I only want to use one serum day and night and this ticks the box. The serum contains a laundry list of familiar actives including retinyl palmitate, vitamin C, glycolic acid and hyaluronic acid all wrapped up in a patent technology so it's stable. I only bought the 15ml to try (the £/ml is eye-watering) and probably wouldn't repurchase due to its high price. Whilst this serum goes on nicely and seems to brighten my skin and didn't irritate it, I'm not sure it did enough to justify the price tag. There are cheaper alternatives out there.
