Great formula

This has become essential to my routine! Love how easily it goes on and I’ve gotten so many compliments since!!

Great moisturizer

The moisturizer is creamy without being greasy. Makes your skin feel very soft. I saw a change in my skin after using it. I really liked it and would get it again

Bryanna Brannelus
The perfect summer moisturizer

This moisturizer is light weight, but don’t let that fool you it’s so moisturizing. It’s perfect under makeup or just for a bare face, it leaves you with a light dewey finish that honestly last all day . I love this product. It’s my new everyday moisturizer

Actually great under makeup

So, I bought a sample set before (The Rise and Shine Routine) and I really enjoyed it. I heard these products were good for smokers, and ever since legalization happened I've been going a little ham. I started breaking out and I'm 32 so that's unusual for me, and I'm starting to get forehead lines. So, I figured I should start taking care of my skin since I don't want to "give up my vice" as my mom calls it (she smokes don't get it). Anyway, I really enjoyed using the entire set, and I actually found that all the products layer really well under makeup. The Vitamin C one was my fav, but this moisturizer really feels great and layers incredibly well with makeup. No pilling, nothing. Plus, I'm noticing my forehead lines are less noticeable, and my breakout is gone. My skin's pretty sensitive and nothing irritated me either. So, while it's a bit pricey I'll buy this stuff when it's on sale. It's worth it.
