Smoothie for your face
SampledPurchased

I have been using this for about 4 months now and have seen a change for the better in my skin. I am very dry, sensitive, and have rosacea, and this has calmed, brightened my complexion, and even reduced a little redness. I have had several friends ask what I'm doing with my skin because they have noticed I have that "glow". Highly recommend adding to your morning & night routine.

great product - see fast results
Sampled

I could feel the old skin mildly peeling off as I used it and revealed a brighter complexion. Did exactly what I wanted it to do. Make went on much smoother after use and couldn't wait to use it again and each day was less and less skin slough off.

Will buy full size and highly recommend it.

This smells so amazing and has such a nice, light feeling. It is like a smoothie for your skin. When I started using this, I received so many complements about my radiant, healthy skin. Definitely a beauty staple!

Uh-mazing!

All those dry skin flakes on my face, gone! My skin was soft and happy. Scent was faint pleasant. Color does have a green tint which can be strange if you weren't expecting it. Overall very nice, I will be ordering a full size!

Okay, Not Worth the Price
Purchased

They're not kidding when they call this a green juice for your skin, it comes out green! :) It does goes on clearly and smoothly, and smells pleasant. After using if for awhile, though, I didn't really see much of a difference in my skin (or enough of a difference to justify the high price tag). If it's a miracle product, I'm willing to make an investment, but for me this just didn't cut it.

This cured my eczema
Purchased

When I got a sample of Joanna Vargas Serum in my monthly box it only took three nights of use to convince me to buy the full size product. I have struggled with dry skin and eczema for about three years now and this has truly been the only thing so far that has kept the inflammation completely at bay...not even a hint of it coming back. Hydrating, calming, brightening, decrease in pore size as well as just imparting an over all healthy glow. I am now on my second bottle and still get the same fantastic results as when I first started using it. In my opinion worth the price because it really does last a long time, a little goes a long way.

Saved my face.
Purchased

My face was painfully sensitive and breaking out. Just a night with this on my face and it began to clear up. Putting this on day & night makes my makeup go on smoother & keeps the irritation away. The scent is pleasant and a bottle lasts a long time. Worth the money.

Love this!

This really brightens my skin. It sinks right in, doesn't create a slick surface. I also like the smell ...delicately sweet, not overwhelming.
