For years I stayed away from facial skin products because I was afraid of the caustic nature of the ingredients. Now that I am older, I am delighted to have discovered a product that is not filled with questionable ingredients. This product reduces small lines wonderfully, I truly recommend this product.

this has drastically helped my skin (repairing dark spots, blemish prone skin). my dermatologist recommended a great vitamin C serum so I am so happy I found this. well worth it, and also leaves skin feeling moisturized.
This smells fabulous in addition to being an amazing product. It has brightened my skin and leaves it feeling very nourished and helps with evening out skin tone and softening lines.
I've been using it for a few weeks now and I have noticed many changes with my skin. My acne scars have gotten lighter and my overall tone has improved. I love the way the serum feels when I put it on. This is hands down one of the best products I have ever used in my life! I highly recommend it!
I absolutely love this new serum! I have tried a couple of the others and really liked them but the Ultra C serum is perfect for me. I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and couldn't be happier. I've really noticed a difference in the look and feel of my skin. It is light weight enough to use under my makeup without feeling heavy. Another benefit for me is that I can use it on my entire face at night rather than avoiding the nose and upper lip area. I wear a c-pap mask at night and couldn't use anything on my skin under the mask or it would compromise the air seal, not a problem with this serum!
So love this product. I can already tell a difference in the texture of my skin after 4 evenings of use. I think everything that comes out of the Bend Oregon area is awesome. So miss being there. Keep up the excellent work with your products, Angelina! I will be purchasing more.
