Customer Reviews

  • New MUST Have!

    Haleigh July 19, 2022

    I can’t get over how well this product worked on my skin! I apply after Vitamin C in the mornings. My face is more balanced and hydrated, and any texture or imperfections have been completely minimized. I have been receiving multiple comments on my skin lately and this is the only new product I have added to my routine. Will definitely continue to repurchase!

    • From Follain:


      Thank your for your amazing review and feedback on the Follain Firming Serum! We love that you are using it in tandem after Vitamin C to give you even more effective results and here’s to you receiving many more complements on your healthy glowing skin!

  • Must have!

    Michelle April 06, 2022

    My skin is very combination (like oil slick on my forehead and dandruff around my mouth) and I have a hard time finding facial products that don’t accentuate one or the other. This stuff smooths out and balances my skin and I was able to notice the results within a week or so. Now I cant be without it! I ran out and ordered it right away and for the week or so I didn’t have it I definitely noticed a difference. My skin feel soft and plump after using. 100% would recommend!

  • Excellent Serum

    Rita G. December 12, 2021

    I’ve been very pleased with this serum. Makes my pores look smaller and my fine lines look fainter. Have purchased it several times already and will be purchasing it again.

  • Nice day serum

    Julia October 22, 2021

    Skin feels slightly firmer since using. It’s nice and light for day wear under makeup.

  • Good hydration

    Donna October 27, 2021

    The Syrium has a thin consistency but is extremely hydrating. It’s nice for light day wear and my moisturizer sits on top of it really well.

  • Super hydrating!

    Meagan October 31, 2021

    I work in the beauty industry, so I have had my hands on a lot of products. I am really enjoying this firming serum. I have acneic skin, and get dry patches, especially around breakouts. I find this serum to have a thicker consistency than some other serums with the same claims. It feels like a gel moisturizer on the skin, and sinks right in making my skin feel moisturized, plump and supple. Some mornings, I find myself skipping my moisturizer and just using this before my makeup. I love that it contains collagen because we lose it as we age and need all the help I can get. I definitely recommend this product, and think it’s going to stay in my routine!!!

  • Collagen Boost & lots of hydration

    Nara October 22, 2021

    I loved it. Everything that hydrates my skin is my priority and this serum did do the work! I’ll probably buy this product in the future again and recommend to friends.

  • Follain

    Grey30 October 21, 2021

    I love my skin feels so perfect smooth moisturized my skin is oily and I did not like any serum because it felt more oily but with FOLLAIN it is different it is not oily it is so soft is pecfect for mi skyn

  • A New Holy Grail

    Aussiedomxo October 19, 2021

    I have super dry skin and I’m OBSESSED with this product. I love the packaging – airless pumps are my fave. I struggle with retinol so Bakuchiol is a nice addition to this formula! I think the price is awesome too for the amount of product that you get. The subtle rose scent is lovely and not overwhelming.

  • Beautiful skin!

    Bondar_kateryna November 01, 2021

    This collagen boost gives you beautiful skin. It did reduce the appearance of pores. I really liked the ingredients (natural alternative to Retinol). Definitely adding the serum to my morning routine!

  • So Cooling, It's Amazing!

    Juniel October 21, 2021

    Very nice gel-ish/water based serum and when applied on skin, it did not feel sticky at all! Skin feels moisturize, smooth and silky after using it for about 2.5 weeks now. What’s best is this brand is organic and clean! Highly recommended!

  • Great product!

    Vero October 26, 2021

    This product was awesome and made my skin feel amazing!

  • Amazing for my skin!!!!

    Amby October 27, 2021

    I have been using the Follain Firming Serum for the last few days and seen a noticeable difference in my skin texture. It has worked wonders for my pores. I also love the fact that it has no chemicals and is a clean product and vegan as well. I will definitely continue to incorporate it in my skincare routine!

  • Works well

    Kina October 28, 2021

    It has a nice and light feeling. It feels like it moisturizes and plumps skin.

  • Follain Firming Serum

    Grettel October 17, 2021

    I truly adore this serum. I use it in the morning and at night before I go to bed. As soon as I out it in it instantly makes me skin so soft, glowy and fresh. It smells so so good. I immediately noticed change on my skin the next day. It definitely looks more lucid and puffy. I must say I am definitely hooked and I will definitely buy this product as soon as I run out of my first bottle. The last thing I want to say the little bottle is very easy to use and it’s mess free. Two little squirts and done. GMO free, dermatologist tested, suitable for sentive skin, vegan and they don’t test on animals.

  • Loved it!

    Trina83 October 31, 2021

    So I did get this. For free and I’ve been using it for a couple weeks and loved the results. It applies nicely and doesn’t leave a tacky feeling. It absorbs quickly as well. will continue to use and recommend to family and friends.

  • Saw results in days

    Hrs127 March 08, 2021

    I received my sample of Follain Firming Serum Collagen Boost and used it for the first time , and I just loved the way my skin seemed to soak kt up and absorb it without a greasy/oily feeling afterward, unlike allt of other serums I have used. I could see and feel a difference in the firmness of my skin within just a few days. I was shocked at how fast it worked and plan to continue to use it daily for even better results!

  • Firming Serum

    Sarahb February 28, 2021

    Follain’s Firming Serum improves skin’s elasticity and stimulates your skin’s natural production of collagen all why hydrating and improving the appearance of pores. I used this product for a few days and my skin felt smoother however by the end of the first day my face was puffy and red. I tend to react this way with retinol. I did enjoy the scent which is a light floral scent and recommend this to those that aren’t as sensitive with retinol products. This serum is suitable for Normal to Dry skin as well as sensitive skin.

  • Finally!

    Simplysaidy March 03, 2021

    Finally a vegan collagen that’s also clean non-toxic sustainable etc. etc.! Absolutely incredible brand In every aspect of the word, I’ve been a long time follain fan, and their mission for sustainability. I will say the only thing I’m still not happy about is the amount of plastic that is used even if it’s recyclable it still feels like a waste. Other than that I would totally recommend this product, it leaves your skin feeling so fresh, revived, smooth and younger looking.

  • Nice consistency

    Gech March 07, 2021

    It is a good serum. I liked how hydrating it felt on my skin. I don’t think it was dramatically forming but other moisturizers laid on top of it very well. I had no irritation since the ingredients are very clean which isn’t always the case for firming products.

  • Skin Booster!

    Lish March 07, 2021

    I’ve tried Follalin Firming Serum for about 2 weeks now and I’ve had pretty promising results. The product absorbs easily and works well under my daily moisturizer. My skin has felt smoother, plumper, and more glowy. The only con is that my skin has felt a bit drier than usual. In all fairness it might be that I need to allow more time for my skin to adjust. I love that this is a clean skincare product and will continue to use.

  • Nice Feeling

    Ashiahr March 16, 2021

    My experience * very easy to apply, not not runny. The feel is pretty standard for a serum, my skin is soft after applied. Not tack tacky or sticky. No shine left behind so i can move forward to my next process in my routine. I have noa bit of pore shrinking after use. But its only been a few days to notice any other differences. OVERALL! Its a 6 out of 10 for me 👍

  • Feels Great, Smells Great!

    Mandgoggs March 01, 2021

    Firstly, I love the packaging on this. I also love that it’s a pump bottle. They are always much easier to use and less wasteful. The exact amount of product you need comes out in one pump…I despise when too much product comes out of a package. This goes on so smoothly and absorbs really well. It smells amazing!! And the smell lasts too. I haven’t used any of their products previously but will definitely be buying from this brand again. I loved it!

  • Pleasantly Surprised at This Product

    Nicole P. March 01, 2021

    I was pleasantly surprised at how well this product worked!! It made my face feel tight and firm …it also felt super nice going on !!

  • Aroma and working

    Coach J. March 03, 2021

    I’m loving the Follain Firming Serum_ Collagen Boost. Clean skincare made in the USA. It does have an amazing aroma. Leaves skin hydrated and not feeling dried out. Great glow.

  • Smooth, soft skin!

    Tiara14 March 04, 2021

    I like that this contains Natural Alternatives with no toxic ingredients. The scent is nice and light, not overpowering. The Serum absorbs extremely fast into my skin, like within seconds which is great because moisturizer can be applied immediately after. It is light weight and doesn’t feel tacky or greasy. I love how soft and smooth my skin feels. This Good for applying day and night!

  • Love Boost Firming

    Vicky3178 March 05, 2021

    I RECOMMEND VECAUSE Velvety-soft serum glides on smoothly and absorbs seamlessly for effortless layering with other products in your skincare routine, subtly light, fresh floral scent derived from Bulgarian Rosewater my skij feel firmer, smoother, tighter and more youthful.

  • Smells great, feels great!

    Radredhead222 March 07, 2021

    I have to say the packaging was the first thing that caught my eye, very nice! The smell of this product is just lovely, and my skin feels radiant! It goes on smoothly and absorbs well. I have oily skin, but my skin feels smooth, refreshed, firm, never greasy. I will definitely be buying this again, and have recommended it to my family and friends.

  • Great firming serum

    Piper713 March 07, 2021

    Love this serum! Your never too young to start on anti aging, and this does a great job. Smells good and is cruelty-free which is always a bonus. Good formula with great non sticky absorption.

  • Smooth & Supple Skin

    Alleyt93 March 07, 2021

    I really enjoy this firming serum and notice a difference in my skin after just one use. It is applied after I have washed and toned my face. In my opinion it has no smell and glides on smoothly, sinks in quickly. Takes no time to blend in and my face looks smoother and more soft and supple. I have noticed a difference in my skin over the time that I have used this. I enjoy this and look forward to continued use.

  • So luxurious!

    Alayna K. March 08, 2021

    My skin looks so healthy after using this serum for just a week! I love the ingredient list on this product and am really happy that there are no harsh chemicals in it that will irritate my skin. The formula is really smooth and a tiny bit (just a pump) goes a long way. It has a nice clean scent that isn’t too overpowering and it doesn’t have a chemical smell. I will definitely purchase this for myself when this one runs out.

  • Nice scent, lightweight & no irritation

    Legacybound March 08, 2021

    After almost two weeks of use, I was pleasantly surprised by the subtle results. My skin feels and looks slightly more supple. I liked that it was easily absorbed, didn’t cause my skin to get greasy, and didn’t cause any breakouts or irritation. And I have sometime sensitive skin! Has a nice scent, almost like mint or eucalyptus. Easy to include in my routine and works well with my current products.

  • Love it

    Ajancaric March 09, 2021

    I received this to test out and im really loving it! It goes on smooth and absorbs quickly. Has a very, very slight tingling sensation, but most serums do. I have noticed a very slight change in the appearance of my skin, which is great because I’ve only been using this for about a week!

  • Love this!

    Christa88 March 09, 2021

    I have super sensitive skin and I’m amazed at how mild and gentle this Follain Firming Serum Collagen Boost is! This serum absorbs completely. It leaves no residue. It feels so pleasant and refreshing when you apply it to your skin! I would definitely buy this excellent serum! I would highly recommend this to anyone including anyone with sensitive skin.

  • My Favorite Serum

    Aed_mama March 09, 2021

    I am 40 years old, and my face is showing signs of aging. It is starting to sag. This serum really helped give my face a nice boost. The serum has a nice texture and a little bit goes a long way. I apply it once a day after I wash my face in the morning. My face is prone to breakouts with certain products, and this product didn’t make my face breakout. I am really happy with the results of this product so far, and will continue to use it.

  • Great firming serum

    Awillis March 09, 2021

    Overall I’m very satisfied with this serum. Very lightweight, doesn’t make my face feel oily or sticky. Scent is great as well. I think with constant use I will definitely see the difference.

  • Silky & light

    Amanda March 10, 2021

    This serum goes on so smoothly and absorbs right away. It’s hard to tell whether there was a difference in my skin after only a week or so of usage, but it did feel like it was good quality. I would probably buy it again if I noticed an improvement in my skin. I liked the light fragrance and silky texture too!

  • Makes me feel younger!

    Paula13x March 14, 2021

    I love this collagen boost it definitely makes my skin feel younger and firmer! Will be using weekly with my daily routine. It’s not greasy at all it blends well into my face and feels amazing. Definitely a must buy!

  • Hydrates and improves skin appearance

    Hollyb March 15, 2021

    This is a great addition to my normal routine. I use it before putting on moisturizer or sometimes I can use it alone. I do have extremely dry skin so most of the time I need both. It has a pleasant smell and is a bit sticky feeling when you first put it on, but after a few moments it is fine and feels soft and smooth.

  • Quickly Noticing a Difference

    Melanies March 14, 2021

    The firming serum was an easy addition to my nighttime skincare routine. I make sure to really press it into the one deep wrinkle on my forehead and massage it onto my neck. I’ve noticed less breakouts and improvements in my skin tone since using this product.

  • My skin felt so hydrated

    Itsam0re March 14, 2021

    I love all the ingredients and how it made my skin feel. The first night I used it I didn’t even need a moisturizer. I could even see myself using this in the morning before I apply makeup.

  • Goes on smoothly

    Missglam March 14, 2021

    It’s very easy to apply…goes on smoothly. Lightweight and oil free.

  • Amazing stuff!

    Mom254321 March 13, 2021

    My skin looks fuller and smoother! It’s white milky formula is instantly sucked into my pores like they are dying for it! I love that it’s clean beauty and has a barely noticeable almost botanical fresh scent.

  • Great Collagen Serum

    Chandra S. March 11, 2021

    I have used this for 2 weeks now and have started to notice a difference, especially under my eyes.

  • Nice and lightweight serum!

    Jody March 10, 2021

    This is a nice, lightweight serum that absorbs quickly without residue. It has a very slight rosewater scent which is pleasant. I love how I can layer more products over this, like makeup without any creasing and caking. It’s nice that is contains 1% Bakuchiol which is a natural Retinol alternative, in addition to the 2% Peptide Complex and Niacinamide. So far I am loving the results!

  • Firming and hydrating

    Phxbeautylover March 21, 2021

    As a woman who has passed the 40 year mark and is heading close to mid-40s, I am seeing the need for firming on my face *screeches* The product is not runny at all. It’s a nice, solid serum that applies easily and it makes my skin feel VERY soft and supple. I am not sure if I am seeing any firming effects YET but I am, however, seeing smaller pores and the tiny fine lines minimized. My skin just looks nicer and healthier and that’s a huge perk. I am hoping with more time to see more firming effects.

  • Firming Serum

    Sherry March 22, 2021

    I’ve been using this every morning and night and love it so far! It feels like it helps.

  • collagen boost

    Lg3 March 22, 2021

    Smooth serum glides on leaving my skin feeling soft. I like that there aren’t any artificial fragrances in this serum. I do feel that my face felt more hydrated using this serum.

  • Great Serum

    Raquelh3 March 21, 2021

    I enjoyed all the benefits of this forming serum with collagen. I like that it boost collagen production and made my skin more smooth and hydrated. It was easy to use, has a pleasant scent and I used it before moisturizer.

  • Great serum!

    Lori March 21, 2021

    I really enjoy this serum. I love the consistency. It’s a thinner, lotion type of texture. It absorbs very well It has a light scent but it doesn’t linger. My skin instantly feels softer and smoother. It definitely feels more firm too. I can’t wait for more results.

  • Amazing results & smells great!

    Mollyr March 21, 2021

    I could see results with this product within the first two weeks! Smells great, not sticky and no tingling. It goes on smooth and plumps the ski !

  • Firms and plumps

    Vmuller2 March 20, 2021

    I’ve been using this serum for few weeks and have noticed a slight difference. I apply morning and night before my moisturizer and it’s quick to absorb. I’ve noticed my skin being smoother with reduction in fine lines which I have on forehead and around my mouth. I love that it has retinol alternative that is effective at producing collagen. I’m not sure if I’d buy once done using this as I’ve tried other products that were more effective at diminishing fine lines. But overall I’m happy with the product and results and do recommend. I needed a collagen boost and got it from this serum.

  • Collagen is nice

    Chevy March 18, 2021

    I have been using the serum for about three weeks now, and I cannot say I have noticed too much of a difference in using it in concern with the “”firming”” aspect. What I have noticed is the increase in keeping my skin moisturized which I do appreciate. I feel this is easy to use, the pump is nice and deposits a decent amount of product. The packaging is pretty unassuming, simple but it works.

  • Great Product

    Raquel211 March 16, 2021

    Follain Firming Serum Collagen Boost is so light, with a subtle floral scent, and refreshing on my skin! I have been using it for about 3 weeks now and I am already noticing some results. With just 2 pumps, the serum goes on so smoothly and absorbs into skin quickly, it is gentle enough for everyday use. It helps in minimizing those pesky pores and fine lines, without drying my face out. I would definitely recommend this to all my friends and family.

  • Instant hydration

    Littlepinkheart09 March 23, 2021

    This was my first time trying anything from the Follian brand, but I was quite happy with the Follain Firming Serum: Collagen Boost! The formula is a medium to thin consistency and really packs a hydrating punch! The serum left my skin instantly moisturized and it absorbed within seconds. My skin was left feeling smoother, firmer and more plump. I don’t care too much for the scent, but it’s very minimal and disappears quickly. I like that this serum is made with Bakuchiol and Niacinamide, as well as Matrixyl synthe’6 Peptide Complex. It’s also cruelty free, non-toxic, non-GMO, and made in the USA. I wasn’t expecting to like this serum as much as I do, but it’s really nice overall.

  • So nice!

    Tammy March 23, 2021

    After using this product for a few weeks now I really like it and have added it to my every day routine! It has a pleasant fresh scent, and I’ve actually noticed a firming effect on my neck and face! I received this free from BzzAgent for testing purposes.

  • I like it.

    Blogwithbrit March 23, 2021

    So far I’ve been using this product for a few weeks. I use it apart of my pm routine. It has a nice thickness to it, spreads easily and doesn’t leave me feeling too oily. I mainly use it on my neck and I use the remaining on the back of my hands. I haven’t noticed a big difference, my skin feels smooth, my skin is in fairly good condition so i haven’t noticed if it firms my skin. I feel like over time it will help with the skins elasticity.

  • A nice product, easy to use product

    Edarr March 28, 2021

    I was given a complimentary sample of this product for the purpose of writing an honest review. This product has a great, consistency – not too thick and not too thin. It layers well with the other products I use and has a nice, but not overbearing, scent. The only reason I say that I would not keep it in my daily routine is because I don’t notice enough of a difference to make me change what I already use. However, for someone looking for a clean, effective product, I highly recommend giving this one a try.

  • Not quite sure yet on longterm outcome

    Momlifeinthepnw March 29, 2021

    Haven’t used it long enough to notice an improvement in skin texture. It does smell good and is a bit watery, but i do like the way it makes my skin feel after it’s clean.

  • Great!

    Laihill57 April 06, 2021

    Nice firming serum! I’ve been looking for a serum with collagen boots and I’ve found it. My skin is normal to dry and this product is great for me. I don’t really like smell but it’s not that bad. This product is non toxic, non gmo, cruelty free, vegan and suitable for sensitive skin.

  • Burns

    J R. May 24, 2021

    I don’t know what ingredient has caused burning but no matter how I apply it, this product burns my skin and I have to wash it off immediately. I have moderately sensitive skin so I was surprised by the reaction.

    • From Follain:


      So sorry to hear that the Firming Serum was not a perfect match for you but glad our Customer Service team was able to help you with this already. Hope you found a new product that is a better match for you!


  • Great for Aging Acne Scarred Skin

    Vicki P. March 22, 2021

    I’m 32, and I have acne scars. Within just a few days, I noticed that my skin was plumper and my scars were less visible. This also didn’t irritate my sensitive skin. I can’t wait to see what this product does in the long run. Thanks!

  • Firmness Is On the Way

    Marilynn C. March 07, 2021

    I was so pleased with the new brightening serum, I decided to try the new firming serum. At my age, fine lines and wrinkles have become a major concern. The serum goes on smoothly and is quickly absorbed, as the brightening serum is. I like that it does not feel sticky and leaves me with the same clean and bright look. I look forward to enjoying its benefits.

    • From Follain:

      So happy to hear that you are loving both of our new Follain Serums, Marilynn! Another awesome tip to try is layering the serums. You would apply the Brightening Serum first and let it absorb and then apply the Firming Serum right after. Enjoy these clean beauty treats and thank you for being a part of our Follain family!

  • Great serum!

    Rita G. February 28, 2021

    So far I am very impressed with this serum. I have been using it for about a week and notice that it minimizes my pores and softens my lines. Works well with Replenish and Protect moisturizer or a tinted spf moisturizer. This is a nice addition to my daily routine and helps my 65+ yo skin look it’s best.
