    I used one of your moisturisers and it worked very well on reducing sun spots (age spots) but now I can't remember which product it was. Could you please let me know which product works best for reducing sun spots. Thank you.

    Asked by: SueC
    Hi, our White Lucent collection is best for visibly fading sun spots. We offer two moisturizers in this collection: White Lucent All Day Brightener SPF 23 and White Lucent MultiBright Night Cream. We hope this helps!

    Hi!! I’m 61 and already use Benefiance line , Ultiimune , Serum with good results. My question is: to boost my treatment should I use this new line?  Thanks for your attention!

    Asked by: Wilma
    Hi Wilma, Essential Energy moisturizers are best to treat the first signs of aging. Our Benefiance collection is best for those who are seeing visible lines and wrinkles. To boost the regimen you are currently using, we recommend using Benefiance WrinkleResist 24 Energizing Essence after applying Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate, before your moisturizer.

    For dull, combination skin type. Will this work? Does this contain anti-aging property? 

    Asked by: jl078
    While all of our Essential Energy formulas are suitable for all skin types, those with oily and combination skin enjoy Moisturizing Gel Cream because it is a lightweight formula with a non-greasy finish. Essential Energy is great for targeting the first signs of aging and giving your skin a natural, energized glow.

    The question is about your Essential energy moisturizing gel cream! Why does it have sunscreen in it and does it have a high spf that I don't have to wear your 42spf sunscreen if I put this on in the morning?

    Asked by: Sandy
    Hi Sandy, Essential Energy Moisturizing Gel Cream does not contain SPF. You can use it at night or during the day. We recommend applying SPF over this cream during the day. We also offer Essential Energy Day Cream SPF 20, which is a day cream with sun protection.

    Moisturizing Gel Cream is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Lightweight Moisturizer I was in the market for a good moisturizer, and after reading so many wonderful things about this Gel Cream, I decided to purchase it. I love this moisturizer; it's very lightweight and perfect for daytime, under make-up. It has a nice, light fragrance that is very uplifting. This would be a great moisturizer for the summer months!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best moisturizer ever! I've been on a hunt for the perfect moisturizer, but not anymore! This moisturizer smells so good and feels amazing on the skin! I use it during the night time because its very light and smooth. My skin feels hydrated, soft and smooth after applying it. Awesome product!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love the scent and formula I love the gel formula and how this feels on the skin. It absorbs fast and leaves my skin perfectly hydrated. The scent is so good too!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moisturizes dry skin! I love this. I’ve never used this brand before but now I’m hooked. I love the consistency of this product. I do wish there was less fragrance but I love how it works with my dry skin.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply amazing! So luxurious and hydrating, I’m so impressed! I have rough dry, flakey skin on the outer parts of my chin and POOF, totally healed. I received this complimentary from Elle for my honest review.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Game-Changer Gel Cream on the Market After trying out the cream for one week, both day and night, I see a noticeable difference in the texture and luminosity of my skin. I was bothered by uneven skin tone, dullness, and texture of the skin, however, my skin now feels smooth and glows from within. Also, I do feel that my skin is now more responsive to other skincare regimen which is another plus for me. However, I would prefer a more hydrating cream for my nighttime skincare regimen, and use this as a daily moisturizer or base for makeup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing! I have been using this moisturizer for 1 1/2 weeks and I absolutely love it! I love the light scent and how light it feels when I apply it and really moisturizes my skin well. A little bit goes a long way so this jar will last me a long time. You know the feeling you skin has after you do your favorite face mask? Glowing, refreshed? Well that's how this moisturizer makes my skin feel after every time I use it. I have also had clearer skin and I haven't had clear skin for this long in years! I hope it continues to work this well for my skin!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need more time- Very light and softens so far! I've only been using this for about 1.5 weeks, 2x per day, and I can't say that I've noticed an extreme difference, but I think I need to keep going with it for a little longer for more visible effects. A MAJOR plus was that it didn't breakout my extremely sensitive skin, which most moisturizers do. It felt very light, yet still moisturizing. There was only one or two days where I noticed a dry spot or two and had to apply slightly more. I noticed some more smoothness, however I'm also currently dealing with a lot of stress at work, so my skin isn't the best, so I will continue to use the product and see if I notice any more brightening or smoothing properties.
