I was thrilled that they included such a generous number of samples! We all know that you can't really tell anything from one sample packet - you need to use the product for awhile to really know whether you like it or not.
The Sephora website describes this product as a lightweight serum that is formulated to absorb instantly, leaving skin feeling firm and youthful. "A polypeptide repair complex supports the skin's ability to protect and renew, and helps prevent visible signs of aging. It's the first step to beautifully bare skin."
In general, I tend to like serums because they're usually lightweight, absorb quickly, and don't cause any problems with breakouts. This serum didn't disappoint. It's very lightweight, yet feels rich and luxurious. I only had to use 2-3 drops to cover my entire face, and it was so easy to apply. No stickiness - and it absorbed right away, leaving my skin feeling smooth and soft.
Two things to note. First: The product does contain fragrance, and it's about halfway down the ingredient list - but - they say that it is an all-natural, botanical fragrance. I am extremely sensitive to fragrance in products especially around my eyes. I used this product under my eyes without any problems, so I had no issues with the all-natural fragrance. Second: The product contains lactic acid, but it is the 6th ingredient from the bottom. Lactic acid is another ingredient that irritates my skin, but I didn't have any problems while using this serum. So I'm guessing that there isn't a lot of it in the product - and I also only used 2-3 drops (but I used it under my eyes, and there would've been major problems!).
Even though the packets said they were "daily dose", there was easily enough for two days in each packet. So I was able to use the serum for about two weeks. I loved the way it made my skin feel, but I can't say that I saw any difference in my skin during that time. With that being said, two weeks isn't a very long period of time, and probably isn't enough to actually see any real changes.

I considered purchasing a full-size bottle of the serum, but the price is $78 for 1 oz., and I think that's a bit pricey. True, it would probably last awhile since I would only use a few drops each day, but still, that's a lot of money for 1 oz. of product. So for now, I've passed on it - but I will keep it in mind for the future, because I did like it.
If you're interested in this product (or other Nude Skincare products), I'm not sure where you can buy them unless your local Sephora still has some in stock. Sephora online is sold out of everything, and they will no longer be carrying the Nude Skincare line.
UPDATE: As far as I can tell, these products are only available from stores in the UK. I see that some of the products are available on Amazon, but I would just check the prices to be sure you're not overpaying. I will link to the general Nude Skincare category on Amazon rather than try to link to specific products.
