      This is my third time using this product. I must say it is very effective and proves worthy of its claims. This brand has been out for a very long time and from my experience with this product I can see why!

                I use this morning and night and the more you use it , the better it gets. First time using anything in this line and makes me want to try other things in this line. Makes skin look really good, moisturized and bright. Hope Ulta always carries this line. I'm going to try the day cream next!
