I've used this product at night, along with the essence and a Kose moisture cream, and have been using Mac's lightfuls' for the day, and I've had really good results. I started to get some early signs of age spots, and they have reduced in size and darkness. I have combinationn skin that leans towards dry outside of my t-zone, and this has really helped keep my skin soft and smooth. I haven't seen any real reduction of the fine lines on my forehead, but over all, I feel like my face is smoother and my skin looks more radiant after a month of use. I am happy with the results, and would recommend this, especially to those with combination to dry skin.

I've just started using the phyto line: this boosting "lotion," essence & the emulsion (moisturizer for normal/oily skin). Combined with the fresh cleansing oil, and having used this for almost 3 weeks, I'm really liking the results!
This is the time of year I dread because I'm losing my summer tan and returning to my normal skincolor which, while is not pale, does not camouflage my uneven complexion and mild loss in elasticity! These products are helping me to bear the transition better and hopefully will continue to do so into winter.
These products are expensive but a little goes a long way. I just switched over from Decleor and I'm glad I did!

I have only been using this product for a little over a week. But so far it has been terrific for my skin. My pores look good and it does not seem to be irritating my skin. I will update in a month. I also purchased the emulsion and I must say I like that as well. I use this my MD Skincare Antioxidant serum, the emulsion and my HG Christian Dior SPF 50 everyday. My skin feels soft and does look healthy, If this continues, I will absolutely buy again and again, expensive, but you wear your face everyday. :)
UPDATE: This product ended up clogging my pores. It took 2 facials to get rid of the clogs. I would not recommend to oily skin people. MD Skincare by Dr Gross is the best.

I've been using this product for about 3 weeks now and have seen a definite improvement in my skin texture, plumper, firmer, hydrated and smaller pore size. This is a gentle anti-aging exfoliating toner. I follow up w/ the phyto black anti wrinkle emulsion, anti wrinkle cream and phyto black eyecream. Expensive products but if you can afford it and need anti aging properties, this one is worth a try. Toner comes in glass bottle which worries me w/ my clumsy self.

Great for my skin which is very sensitive to dehydration. My HG.

Okay. I have tried 5 different lines of skin care products. I was last in love with the Shu Depsea line, however, they reformulated and it irritated my sensitive skin. So, back to origins Dr. Weil's line, which is my standard as it works but I don't love it. Then, I found the Phyto Black line. The radiance booster? I think it is the fountain of youth, I'm actually surprised that the entire US stock is not sold out. Yep ladies, that good.
I first cleansed with Shu's A&O oil cleanser (my HG, greatest cleanser I've ever found), followed up with the Radiance Boosting Lotion, then misted a bit with a Shu Uemura Depsea facial mist, and then used the Phyto Black firming anti-wrinkle cream. My skin actually looks like I'm wearing foundation right now, and I'm bare!! Really, couldn't recommend these products enough. I think I just found my HG!!
I would give this product 10 lippies if I could.

Wow what a great product ....... this acts in the same way as a toner however, also has anti-aging benefits. I just received this item yesterday and was IMMEDIATELY impressed. This left my skin so soft and plump that I had to take a double look ------ I guess that this would be more considered a toner/treatment since it acts as both and well worth it's price tag.
P.S. I also purchased the matching emulsion in this line, however, not as impressed. The Phyto-Black Lift Radiance Boosting lotion is all you need from the line in my personal opinion as it actually works alot better than the emulsion and is so much less in terms of $$$.

This product is amazing. I am under-30 so I suppose most people would wonder why I even need anti-aging products. But this lotion/toner is just really great. Used after the Shu Uemura cleansing oils, it gives the skin a perfect, moisturized and balanced finish that's ready for your emulsion, night cream or make-up.
The bottle is a bit bulky so that's kind of a turn-off, but everything else about this product lives up to its promise. Love it!

This new line of skincare from Shu Uemura is designed for ages 35+. I would not recommend it for those with primarily oily skin or an acne problem. If you have dry, damaged or "experienced" skin - this is an incredible pre-treatment lotion.
I listed it under "toners" because this is the step you would use it in. It is a very light fluid - but somehow manages to exfoliate and deeply moisturize without irritating the skin. It smells fantastic - like a light fruity cocktail (not strong) - thanks to the black tea, black sugar and litchi complex. You almost don't need a moisturizer - skin is smooth, balanced, moisturized and calm. Incredible.
