Nutriganics™ Smoothing Serum
This serum works pretty well for me. It soaks up quickly and does not feel greasy. I let it set before applying other products. I would recommend using microdermabrasion products and tools once or twice a week for best results.
However, I'm a little peeved that the line is called "Nutriganics" when so many of their ingredients are synthetically derived, and the extracts come almost last in some of the ingredient lists. This is why I wouldn't recommend people Nutriganics: it infers "natural," when it is nothing near it. The line is similarly priced to organic lines i have been recommended. So what are we paying extra for?

buy another serum from the body shop line
Although the serum appear to work well in reducing redness, it smells so terrible that I really can't stand to put it on--strong green tea scent. Yes, it does appear to reduce redness in the two weeks that I've been using this product, both morning over Nutriganics day moisturiser and evening over Nutriganics night cream. The Body Shop has many other ones that are equally good quality and do not carry the strong odor. Although this product appears to work well, I will likely purchase the orange serum from the body shop in the future.

Put it this way, after I tried the sample pack, I noticed a difference. Now after a month of using this serum, I wish I found out about this product 10 years ago. I use it along with the tea tree line of skin care and my face is smoother, less red, and has a more even tone.

Not just smoothing, but also healing :)
I got this product just this morning and was pleasantly surprised. The area under my eyes was really irritated, red and puffy. Just a few minutes after putting this and the Vitamin E intense moisturizer on my face, the redness and puff was reduced significantly. My face FEELS better! The fine lines on my forehead also seem to be less visible, but that might just be the placebo effect ;)
The smell is a little odd, but it isn't overpowering. I think I like it. It's sort of herbal and almost musky. But it's definitely not the kind of smell that everyone would like.
I can't yet vouch for the long-term effects, but once I've been using it for a while I'll come back and write another review. I just wanted to share the good news :)
