Works Great!

I received a small sample through the mail... I used it and loved it immediately... When I ran out, I was completely horrified with the high price. I ordered it anyway... Now that I have run out of the larger tube, I am definitely ordering again. The results are undeniable... Clearer more radiant complexion... I have extremely fair and sensitive skin and I am thrilled...

It really works

I've notice an improvement after using it for 3 weeks. I had acne scarring for the longest & sensitive skin and at first I doubt that anything would work since I have already tried many products out there, but honestly after giving it a try I am truly impressed. This has become part of my facial regime, smells great and absorbs quickly to.

The price is very high for a spot corrector. I kind of expected it to work fast. I've only been using a week and no difference in mild red acne scars... I hoped to see some lightening effect... It did give me a glow from within which sort of temporarily his them like most brighteners do. I will keep using my sample as I may make it last another week and if it does not help I'll go back to my other regimen. However I love the cleanser and brightening cream. They work very well! This product so far is just okay. Waiting to see some difference. The price is high.

Dark spots diminish

I really liked this serum. I felt like my skin reacted well it to and some of my dark spots started to diminish. I used the sample twice a day consistently. I would purchase it but the full sample is really pricey!
