WELCOME BACK! AND IF YOU ARE NEW HERE, WELCOME
I have tested, aka used it for more than four months prior to writing this review, so it is fair to say
I have had plenty of time to see if it makes any visible difference.
It comes in a gorgeous dark Miron glass bottle with a pump, and the aesthetics are pleasing to the eye – it would look gorgeous on any bathroom counter! I really like that it comes with the pump, not having to dip my fingers into the product makes me happy, as there’s no chance of contaminating it. It is off-white in colour, has a rich buttery texture and yet is lightweight on your skin, leaving it super hydrated and plump. I used it morning and night, and I have to say it works well under makeup too. My fine lines were definitely less visible while I was using this, and it definitely kept the skin well nourished. True hydration from the bottle! Two thumbs up and a seal of approval from me.
Ingredients are nothing short of truly natural and magical, like the rest of ISUN products. It has a long list of ingredients, but they are all fabulous, plant extracts aplenty. Concentrated hyaluronic acid? Yes, please! Check. High nutrient active oils? Check.
