A sweet nothing. And a very, very expensive ($75) one at that. The texture does feel finer than a regular lotion and therefore absorbs quickly, but the effects are unnoticeable. I have used toners which are more hydrating. Far too light. Not for dry skin.
For $72 it moisturizes but it does brighten at all. Never again.
I have been using the LM Flawless Skincare line for 8 months. My skin has never been better. I am 42 with combo/dry skin with a lot of allergies and sensitivities and have tried many products that have caused irritation, but I am now getting compliments on my skin since using the LM products.
I use the Illuminating Brightener in the morning after the Perfecting Water. I only need 1-2 pumps for my whole face. I follow it with creme. I will continue buying this as long as my skin keeps looking this good!
