What it does:
More than just a primer! Helichrysum regenerates and firms skin while natural DMAE, the ‘facelift in a jar’, lifts and tones, creating a beautifully even canvas for a flawless appearance and a makeup application that lasts and lasts. Beneficial skin effects increase with regular use.
Apply a dime-sized amount to face. Let dry, then apply foundation or powder.
Helichrysum Oil: The extract of the helichrysum flower has wonderful regenerating qualities and helps heal and tone the skin and spirit.
Natural DMAE: Known in cosmetic circles as a ‘facelift in a jar’ this naturally occurring wonderkid is one of the first ingredients proven to have a dramatic effect on sagging facial skin, one of the main contributors to visible aging.
Organic Aloe Leaf Juice: Extract of the Aloe Vera plant. Excellent hydrating, softening and soothing properties, especially for dry, damaged skin.

I bought this because of the reviews and at my age (40) I thought it would be good, but honestly I wasted my money. I have been using it for 2 weeks or so and see no difference at all. The only thing I do notice is the strong medicinal smell.
I love this stuff I have bought 2 bottles just to make sure I have it because it is always sold out, It is a small bottle but i use a dime size amount it last forever, I have to be careful what I use on my skin there is not much I can use but this stuff is great i also use all the desert essence products my face looks amazing just after 2 wks of using them no more red blotchy skin and my acne is going away it was so nice to hear from my friends how much of a difference they see in my face THANK YOU WELL for carrying such great products! and so easy to shop for for you just look under green & natural love this site!
I'm still using this product and I will continue to use it. It is light weight, non-greasy and easy to apply. I don't have anything negetive to say concerning this product. LOVE IT !!!! : ))
I love this product. You can immediately apply your makeup right over it without worry about streaks or flakeness.
You do have to remember to apply the product first before applying your sunscreen because the sunscreen does not absorb into the skin as well.
Other than that great product! : )
I like that it's a multi-purpose product (therapeutic as well as functional), and it feels good on the skin and allows makeup to blend beautifully. However, you don't get very much product for the price. The jar is pretty tiny.
Also, be careful about ordering this when the weather is very cold because the glass jars may shatter if the product freezes.
