Works well!

I was wary about an exfoliator that you didn't need to wash off but decided to give it a try. I really like it and has really worked to tone my skin--enough that I have decided to stop using a toner and use this in the place of a toner 2-3 times a week. I have pretty clean yet dry skin and found that using a daily toner was drying it out so this is a good replacement. This works really well with the peptide moisturizer!

Obsessed

Wow the reviews really didn’t lie. I use this every other night and have a significant decrease in the texture on my chin area and feel much more glow!

My favorite Cocokind product!

It’s an upscale, way more effective do it yourself turmeric mask that doesn’t turn your sheets yellow🤣 It’s like an exfoliator, toner and brightening treatment had a baby!

I have been using this for 2 months as step 2 in my pm routine 3 days a week(the other days I use rose Hydrosol as my toner). It instantly brightens and improves tone and texture, providing a good base to layer serum and moisturizer over. I was sick and didn’t use it for about a week and last night my skin starting peeling a little after using it, just like a manual exfoliator would do!

I also use it on my cuticles when I get out of the shower, then use an orange stick and lotion. Butt cheeks, legs, you can pretty much use it everywhere. And after 2 months of using it on all those areas, I’d say less than 1/6 of the bottle has been used! So a little goes a long way. It just takes a few drops per area.

My one disappointment is I was hoping for long term results smoothing my facial texture from my deeper acne scars in my teens. Maybe after 3 months I’ll notice it🤣

Amazngly effective and gentle

As a skincare lover, I feel like I've tried all the popular powerful toners. This is the only one the was gentle on my sensitive skin but effective and really made my skin smooth and glowy. I got compliments left and right after using it because there was a visible change in my skins texture and brightness! Cocokind products always do what they promise on my skin but this one really made a huge change for me!

no, the turmeric extracted with CO2 that results in a slightly clear to yellow color so you can use it without staining skin or your pillows!
