I am pleased with the results, 3 Mar 2015
I have only been using this cream for 4 or 5 days and so far, I am pleased with the results.
I like it, 5 Jan 2015
I use it on my neck to “calm” the hideous age spots, flat skin tags (?) on my 60+ Asian skin). So far i like this toner (not sticky, has very mild scent. Not sure if this will whiten (lighten) or work as anti wrinkle on my neck but i am enjoying this “snake venom” toner and notice the spots look smaller or less hideous. I took a picture of “before” but will have to continue longer to show the “after”

It has a faint, floral scent. It’s not particularly noticeable when applied, although if you smell it in it’s container it’s definitely pleasent.
It has a rich creamy texture that feels a little watery. It’s non stick, highly moisturising and is absorbed easily by the skin.
It’s highly moisturising thanks to ingredients that include shea butter, panthenol and aloe vera, all of which help to sooth and smooth the skin, as well as to help it retain water, leaving your skin feeling adequately moisturised all day.
Apply the cream to your neck and face, applying it directly to areas most affected by fine lines and wrinkles. After you have applied the cream, let it sit for 10-15 minutes to allow it to be absorbed by the skin and rub any excess away.
For the best results use the cream twice daily; once in the morning and once at night, for at least 28 days.
