Best-non greasy natural skin cream I have ever bought. Smells great. I bought this cream for a relative and is in love with. It has a humble but at the same time elegant fragrance. It’s superb.
I'm a very active woman with combination skin more on the oily side. I've been using Xtend-Life's Foaming Facial Cleanser for years, and I have to say it does a wonderful job at cleaning my skin without stripping it dry. I follow up with Xtend-Life's Soothing Eye Contour Cream and the Luminous Day and Night Cream. I like the ingredients in their products, and my skin does as well!
I am an aging humble woman who cares more about what I put in my tummy and what I apply on my face and body. I have been using Xtend-Life's skin care products for more than 10 years. I never shop for skincare facial products anywhere else. Luminous Day and Night Cream is excellent texture, I don't see wrinkles but smooth. No more uneven color, it makes my face look bright and healthy, and I am worth it. Thank you so much.
I have used the Luminous Facial Serum and Luminous Day and Night Cream for years, now, because they work! It is quick and easy, and I know that there is nothing in them that is going to hurt my health like so many other products! The company is always refining their products, I feel, in the best interest of the consumer. I buy several of their products and want to keep my total health going!!
This moisturizer does a good job at lightening hyperpigmentation, but it is far from hydrating. I might have ordered this product again with the serum, primarily because they do work fairly well togetherm but because the serum's price was hiked by almost 30% and the size was reduced by half, I won't. There are too many other products on the market that work equally well, cost less, and come in bigger sizes. Disappointing.
