          This product has nothing in it that does anything for your skin. Yes it's true that there's nothing in it that will hurt your skin but just look at the ingredients. It's pretty much just water and glycerin. Glycerin can confuses your skin making it go back and forth between dry and oily.

            Oh my goodness, MB - you have saved my "winter face." It's already a brutal one in NYC and my skin was screaming for some hydrating and comfort last night. I slathered this on and this morning, my skin is so soft and smooth to the touch - I'm almost in shock that the overnight transformation was so intense. This can be easily applied under your favorite moisturizer or worn on its own overnight as a sleeping mask. A winter must!

                This is an excellent product to hydrate your skin for those of you with dry skin. My skin can be incredibly dry especially during the winter and while I am searching for a non oil based moisturizer, this serves as a nice temporary backup.

                          Both are great options! Our Cellufirm Drops can be used on combination or dry skin types showing signs of aging. This product will help plump, soften and hydrate the skin while reducing fine lines. Our Herbal Hydrating Serum can be applied after your moisturizer for added hydration. This product can be used on all skin types.
