I\’ve been using this for several weeks now. I wasn\’t expecting much and I didn\’t want to have a light face (I have a tan body, lol) so I was skeptical to say the least. I\’m so excited to share that my face didn\’t get lighter but it did get incredibly soft and smooth. This is a very expensive product for me – I usually use Lancome Geneifique and Visionairre which are expensive but this is worth it. I\’ll be getting it. I also want to try the other products because I\’d bet like everything they work even better in unison!
