Exuviance Illumination Duo 5


The Good

  • Vitamin C is a very effective skin evening and brightening product so I was so excited to try a product contain PURE Vitamin C.
  • After about a month of consistent use, my skin had an internal glow that was not present before.  I do not have any fine lines as of yet but I did notice that my skin was a bit more firm after about 5 weeks of use.

The Bad

  • I did not like some of the ingredients in the Evening Restorative Complex (e.g. Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil and Dimethicone, parabens)
  • The Vitamin C+ Antiaging Booster’s packaging was a little inconvenient for me and I found it hard not to get sprinkles of Vitamin C powder everywhere.
  • With using 1/2 scoop of the Vitamin C+ Antiaging Booster, my skin did become a little sensitive after 1 week of consistent use.

[xrr rating= 3/5]

I gave the Exuviance Illumination Duo 3 out of 5 stars because I found the Vitamin C+ Antiaging Booster to be very effective in brightening my skin, however, I was not a fan of some of the ingredients in the Evening Restorative Complex.

Will I repurchase? This product was provided to me for consideration but I would purchase it on my own if needed.

Would I recommend this product to a friend?  No because I love skin care products with more organic, natural ingredients but yes because it works.
