Support the strength of your skin with SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF. It combines potent antioxidant power with cellular renewal and collagen synthesis for a younger-looking and brighter face. The lightweight serum conquers damage without irritating your skin in the process.
My Review: There's a slight odor that comes from this product. It doesn't smell like a synthetic chemical of any sort, just really potent concentration of stuff (you know what i mean? lol). I put two drops into my palms and patted the product into my just-washed face. It absorbed immediately and dried right away. I just used it this morning so results are inconclusive.
I'm currently using: La Mer Radiance Infusion Serum. How this compares: You can only use this product in the morning apparently. I didn't see much of a difference in results when I used La Mer, which was a bit thicker and smelled like wet grass. It had the consistency of egg whites and the same sort of drying feeling as if you were to put egg whites on your face. I think I like the Phloretin CF better because there is no dry tightening feeling to it as it dries. After apply this serum, I put on my regular daily moisturizer which is Dermalogica Active Moist.

My Review: I love this face wash! It's gentle and 100% vegetarian product. It even removed my waterproof mascara (Chanel Inimitable) which most the face wash that I've tried fail to do. My face felt soft and cleansed. This is after I returned from a 6 hour flight from California, mind you, so my pores needed a good cleanse. I am a big fan of any natural product that doesn't use harsh chemicals, so this one is a big thumbs up. I think I found my new face wash.
My Review: This product is recommended for PM use only. This serum felt soooo silky smooth on my skin. It absorbed instantly into my skin, that I forgot I had event put any on. I put this on after I washed my face with the Juara face wash above. It's a lightweight formula and when I woke up, I noticed my skin was still silky smooth.. I do have some hyper-pigmentation from breakouts years ago that haven't gone away so hopefully this product will do the trick. I will continue using this until it runs out and let you know if there are visible results, but so far I really like how it feels on my skin.
What I currently use: Philosophy's Hope in a Jar as a night cream. How it compares: Unlike Hope in a Jar, it does not have that nasty strong lavender scent. It doesn't sting my eyes, nor does it make my skin feel oily. I'm starting to think that anything that you put on your face that gives you immediate adverse results (like oily-ness) is probably not compatible with your skin. Why put up with sub-par results when you can switch to something that works with your skin?
