Review:  This is a complimentary product sent by Influenster but I always write my honest opinion/s about any free products I receive.  Just as I mentioned in my previous post, this is the first time I am using this brand.   I like the gray and white packing with a splash of lavender for a pop of color on a muted color scheme.  I have sensitive skin and this really feels good on the skin.  Sometimes skincare products with "ultra-calming" effects can cause tingling sensation on the skin and irritation, at least on my skin it does.  I use this at night and leave it one for a few hours before applying a night cream or an overnight sleeping mask.  This feels more like a serum than a moisturizer but it does have a thin consistency.  This product sinks in the skin quickly and provides moisture overnight.  This product is a little difficult to dispense (maybe I got a bad one) since it is not squeeze tube and it does not have a pump.  Also, this comes with a hefty price tag of $75.  I am not saying that it is not a good product, but for me, fortunately, I do not have a lot of skin issues and can use other options such as brands like Clinique for less.  Again, if you think this is a skin-changing product for you, then it might be worth it, but not for me.
