Glycolic acid surprise

I received a sample of this and assumed it was just a moisturizer so I applied it nonchalantly to my slightly sunburnt and over-exfoliated face. It started to sting and redden but I didn’t think too much of it because I have very fair skin and blush easily. The next morning my face was actually still shockingly red and disfigured with bumps and rough patches. It stayed like that for a week and I was embarrassed to leave the house and terrified my face was permanently damaged. I did however notice some of my wrinkles seemed to have smoothed out after that one use. I did a lot of googling and learned about glycolic acid and once my face healed I have actually dared to use it again with positive results, making sure to stay out of the sun and not exfoliate before using it and not using it on parts of my face that redden easily like my cheeks.

The bessst

No exaggeration this is the BEST face moisturizer I have ever used! I love the light smell it has as well! If only it weren’t so expensive! :/

Excellent products

Smells great, does what it says (smoothes), and a little goes a long way. My skin looked incredible after using it and even better after I’d used it for a week.

Love it

My favorite face cream ever, I wish it wasn't so expensive. It doesn't have the best smell but my skin looks amazing. I've been trying to use it wisely so I don't run out!

Irritated my skin

I put this on my face and the back of one hand. About 30 minutes later, I had to wash it off. The next morning and my skin is still red and very itchy.

Amazing!

When I first started using this product I told my husband I would never buy it because it was too expensive. I made my little sample last a month, you only need a little and I only used it at night. I just ran out last night and while doing my routine tonight I missed it TOO much. I asked my husband to let me splurge! My skin feels super soft and it helps with blemishes. The scent is the only downside (other than the price) but it isn't a super horrible scent.

LOVE IT!!!!

I have rosacea and this cream worked wonders for my complexion. The dry patches went away within a week and my skin tone balanced out. It is a bit expensive but it is worth it for me . I will be buying a full size jar once my sample runs out and telling my friend as well who also has the same skin issue.

the best

this is hands down the greatest face cream I've ever used. I'm prone to greasy acne riddled skin. using lotions and all of that made it so much worse. but this not only didn't do that but my face is smooth soft and just wonderful. the price is out of my budget but wow I'm considering just saving and buying. I'm in love.

Best thing I have ever gotten in my box!

I am almost 40 and have significant wrinkles under my eyes. After a week of using this cream I could tell a difference. It has been 2 weeks now and there is a huge improvement! I know it's kind of pricey but the results are better than anything I have ever used! You can't go wrong with this product!
