I have gotten 3 compliments on my skin in the past week and a half. The only thing that has changed in my skincare routine is the addition of Majik C Serum to my nighttime routine (I don't apply it in the morning at all), every other night, alternating with a retinol product (soon switching to Markey's after I use up my current supply of other). I am wearing the same makeup I've worn for at least 2 years, so I am betting it's not the makeup bringing the compliments.
First, my mother complimented me about 1.5 weeks ago. That was about 2-3 weeks into my starting Majik C. She sees me every week or 2, so I would bet that a subtle change in my appearance wouldn't jump out at her. She usually gives almost painful constructive criticism, so when I get a compliment, I know she really means it (love ya Mom!) Said my skin looked "gorgeous", what was I doing, and did I change my makeup? Thank you, added GoW Majik C serum to my routine a few weeks ago, and no. :)
Second, my hairdresser complimented me this past weekend. She sees me every 10 weeks. Said my skin looked smooth and glowy, and that I had no lines or wrinkles. Thanked her too, told her I added GoW Majik C Serum, gave her website info. I do have lines and wrinkles by the way, but I really think the Majik C has softened them. :)
Third, today, my boss complimented me on my skin when I was in a 1-on-1 meeting with her. She said that it looked so natural and smooth, she didn't know if it was my makeup, and to pardon her for staring at me! LOL! Loved it! Told her it was Majik C Serum and gave her the website.
Compliments aside, I was impressed with this product after 1 night of use. Seriously. My skin looked more even-toned to me and felt smoother after just the first night. I have sensitive skin and this product did not sting, redden my skin or irritate it in any way. Majik C is the first C serum I've used on my mid-40's face (better late than never, and might as well start with the best, right?) I love using it because *I* can see and feel a difference, and that's really all that mattered to me. I didn't mention to anyone that I started using it; I figured I'd be the only one to possibly notice a difference. And then I get 3 compliments. And I *never* get compliments on my skin. So there you have it. This stuff must really be Majik! :)
If you are thinking of trying this product, definitely do it! The sample is great, lasts a lonnnng time. I ordered my full-size product after just a week of using the sample.
Shelf Life and Storage Information for Products and Ingredients
Finished products generally don't need to be refrigerated as they are preserved, but you can refrigerate them to extend shelf life. Shelf life is 9 - 12 months
Sample sizes do have a shorter shelf life (generally 3-6 months and items in jars can dry up quicker than this if the lid is not tightened well enough (except our vitamin C serums - use within 90 days).
Please try to keep out of high humidity or heat if possible! Store out of direct light and in dark cabinet if possible also!
Exfoliating Acid products will last 1 year.
The only thing we don't suggest refrigerating is the mandelic or salicylic acid serums as those can crystallize in the refrigerator and not go back to their normal state even if you warm them up.
