Customer Feedback 

I'm liking this one...I think it's the caffeine... 
I don't find too many things that make my face calm right away so I can put makeup on. This one seems to be doing that. 

The Winter Balm and Skin Motivator Serum are my absolute favorites. I love the smell of both - the Winter Balm provides my face just the right amount of moisture without making it feel greasy (I use this at night) and the Skin Motivator Serum gives my skin a real wake up call in the morning. It feels lovely to apply and seems to have a really calming and plumping effect. 

I've been using for 4 days and I really like it. It feels almost as soothing as my beloved Rosacea Serum. This is something I think Markey will want to offer full size. HTH. :) 

I like the consistency, and it makes my skin feel smooth. I don't know if the 'motivation' is there yet, just started using it :) 

I like it. It seems to calm my skin...make it less fluffy and takes down some redness. I've just been using it in the morning. I used it after hydrosol and with camellia oil. I used about two pea sized 

I've been using this for about a week and really like it. I apply three drops in my routine right after cleansing. It leaves my skin less dehydrated, and seems to minimize inflammation from acne and speed its healing- my skin tone has become more even after I started using it. The consistency is pretty thin, just a tad thicker than water. It does have a distinct smell- I don’t find it unpleasant, but it’s more notable (imo) than that of my other gow products. All in all, I’d be interested in purchasing this full-size. 

      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.
