Love !!...so good...I actually like the smell...The only thing that kind of bugs me about this product is the scent, as well, I haven't used it enough yet to figure out if it breaks me out (typically I go through a slight purge when I use vitamin C serums then my skin settles) so I'm just waiting on that, but so far I really like it a lot!
Which skin type is it good for?
✔ Normal
✔ Oily
✔ Combination
✔ Dry

What it is:
A super-potent vitamin C day serum that is packed with a powerful antioxidant complex, essential nutrients, and fruit enzymes that all work together to firm and brighten the appearance of skin.

Solutions for:
- Uneven skin tone
- Loss of firmness and elasticity
- Dullness and uneven texture

If you want to know more…
This revolutionary serum is jam-packed with a potent antioxidant complex of 15 percent l-ascorbic acid, one-half percent ferulic acid, and one percent vitamin E, and other formula-supportive enzymes that help neutralize pollution, environmental stressors, and the damaging effects of free radicals over time. This formula helps to replenish lipids and visibly reduce the appearance of dark spots and wrinkles after applying regularly. Uniquely formulated with pumpkin ferment extract and pomegranate enzyme, C-Firma™ enzymatically dissolves dead surface skin cells. Sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer quickly sinks into skin and provides ultimate hydration. The result is a noticeably diminished appearance of photo damage, replaced by incredible radiance and luminosity.

What else you need to know:
C-Firma™ has a reservoir effect, which means it will stay active on skin for up to 72 hours and cannot be washed or rubbed off. Its pH level is 3.3, which Drunk Elephant believes is the key to a non-irritating, effective formulation that delivers real results. This product is 100 percent free of essential oils and fragrance.

Drunk Elephant is committed to using only ingredients that either directly benefit the skin’s health or support the integrity and effectiveness of their formulations. They never take into account an ingredient’s synthetic or natural status, but instead choose based on its biocompatibility. You won’t find what Drunk Elephant calls the "Suspicious 6" in their products (essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical screens, fragrance/dyes, and SLS,) making them, in their opinion, appropriate for all skin. They believe that these six ubiquitous ingredients are at the root of almost every skin issue we see. When formulating the products, they focus on pH levels and safety, always making sure that the active ingredients are at efficacious levels. This is the Drunk Elephant difference.

Drunk Elephant is a supporter of IEF (International Elephant Foundation) and is cruelty-free. 

This product is an Allure Best of Beauty award winner.

love it...I glow!...Another LM product, ftw!...Let me describe it in the best way I can: In reference to the name "matte" radiance, I personally think it's a bit of a misnomer, although by matte I believe it's in reference to the lack of extreme pigment or pearlescence, which is exactly what I wanted.
What it is:
An ultrasmooth baked face powder that provides natural color with soft matte radiance.

What it does:
Wake up the skin, and provide natural color with a radiant, healthy glow for a flawless, no-makeup look. Sheer, buildable coverage lets you customize your glow, while the modern, multidimensional matte finish imparts a hint of soft luminosity. The bronze shades provide a neutral warmth in varying intensities. The ultralightweight formula feels weightless on skin and applies smoothly and blends effortlessly. The smooth, silky, velvety texture feels comfortable, while the long-wearing formula lasts up to eight hours and stays color-true without oxidizing for an even wear. Each tile is hand-mixed with a unique design.

What else you need to know:
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect skin against the effects of free radicals. Jojoba oil is moisturizing and helps soften skin. Spherical powders allow for increased comfort and blendability. This non-dusty, non-drying formula is dermatologist-tested, fragrance-free, and suitable for all skin types, even sensitive ones.

In Love...Love It...My skin is brighter, glowy, and less irritated....I've been only using this for a few weeks so I can't say I've noticed any significant improvements in my skin just yet, however I love the way my skin looks and feels when I apply this serum and I do feel like I look more glowy in the morning when I apply this to my face at night.

What it is:
A 12 percent AHA/BHA night serum that refines and resurfaces skin to reveal a smoother and more radiant complexion.

Solutions for:
- Uneven skin tone
- Dullness and uneven texture
- Pores

If you want to know more…
This high-tech gel resurfaces dull skin, lifting dead skin cells away by gently dissolving the glue that holds them to the surface. The results are greater clarity and a smoother, more even-looking complexion. Formulated with a dream-team AHA/BHA blend including glycolic, lactic, tartaric, citric, and salicylic acids, and blended with raspberry extract, T.L.C. Framboos™ sinks in easily and delivers an effective level of chemical exfoliation without the harsh side effects like dryness or sensitization. Fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration, along with excess oiliness and the appearance of pores, appear dramatically diminished over time. Horse chestnut, bearberry, and white tea help to calm and soothe, while improving the appearance of broken capillaries. Go from a drab complexion to an absolutely luminous one—practically overnight.

What else you need to know:
AHA’s can be harsh on sensitive skin if not formulated properly. Soothing plant extracts were added to T.L.C. Framboos™ so that it is formulated at the ideal pH level of 3.8. This product is vegan and gluten-free.

Spot on...Holy Grail...It blends well with my blush....I bought this so I could have a more natural contour colour instead of using a bronzer which are usually too warm in tone I've heard so many good reviews and thought I would instantly fall in love with this product, but its taking a little longer than I thought it would... This definitely requires a good brush for the application you want and I find I've to use the tiniest amount and blend it out really well so it doesn't make my face look dirty.
