The total concentration of these technologies in the formula by weight is 25.1%.

HOW TO USE: Apply to the entire face in the AM and PM after cleaning.
Note: It is best to not use Peptides in the same routine as the following products: Direct acids, LAA (L-Ascorbic Acid) and ELAA (Ethylated Ascorbic Acid). In addition, we would recommend avoiding the use of products containing copper peptides in the same routine as strong antioxidants as well as direct acids/LAA/ELAA.
If irritation occurs, cease use and consult a physician. Use only as directed on unbroken skin. Patch testing prior to use is advised.

Returns & Exchanges
Once products leave the Socialite Beauty warehouse, all sales become final. Many products do not come with sanitary seals making it unsafe to put them back on the shelves. We want you as our customer to feel secure you're getting brand new, unused products from us. Because skin can take some time to adjust to new products as well as to detox from any changes, it is best to allow 2-3 weeks of use to see how your skin truly takes on new items. Sometimes a few uses alone is simply not enough time to let the new products get to work. If your product does have a seal and you would like to return it, please notify us via email if you will be returning a product you have purchased (email@example.com) and include images of the sealed product. Provide your invoice number and reason(s) for the return/exchange. Once merchandise has arrived back to us, we will issue a refund minus return shipping cost.

I honestly cannot see any difference in my skin. Yet, with that said, I like the consistency of the serum and it contains a lot of "skin loving" ingredients!
I love the feel and the effects.
Very good very very good
It's another solid product from The Ordinary, but I prefer their Buffet + Copper Peptides which leaves my skin smoother and I don't need as much. The Buffet is half the price, so I thought I'd try it, but I'll be going back to Buffet + Copper Peptides once this bottle runs out.
I think like most products from The Ordinary, the price is certainly amazing. However, there are better products out there where the texture isn't so thick and I think I've found that I'd rather spend a bit more for a product that gives better results.
