I just started using this and it's already transforming my skin. I woke up this morning and couldn't believe it. Then when I saw myself in photos -- my skin was definitely smoother, fewer blemishes and glowing. I have high hopes that I will reap more benefits as I keep using it going forward. I love that it's a clean product and powerful to the skin while also being gentle and kind.


This formula is wonderful! Gentle but super effective, my facial complexion is brighter, clearer and smoother. I have used it nightly for the past several weeks. Excellent value and results!!!!


I started using this at the end of a very long winter, my skin was flakey in areas, plagued with blackheads in other and curious under the skin bumps all over. I have been using this product a few times a week and within the first few uses, the flakies are greatly diminished, texture is better, my skin is definitely brighter and moisture levels are way better. I have been using this in conjunction with Holistic Vanity's Damage Care - Brightening Hyaluronic Lotion. I look forward to continued improvement with longer use of these two products together!
