    Love this product!
    It is moisturizing and my skin has a visible glow the following day. It’s slowly starting to fade my dark marks within a month of using this product.

  4. lsmith459 (verified owner)

    I love the consistency of the product – it is very moisturising and my skin feels so soft after I have applied it. I can definitely see a difference. My skin looks brighter and more even. I haven’t used it long enough to see if it helps for wrinkles and fine lines.

  5. robynvee (verified owner)

    Very potent, so use sparingly at first and not too often. My skin glows and is much more even. Wonderful for those who want to combine nighttime moisturising and Retinol treatment into one affordable product instead of having loads of serums and moisturisers to apply.
