    I am astounded by this moisturizer. It’s only been day 3 and my skin looks PHOTOSHOPPED. I’m only 26 but I’m obsessed with anti-aging products. I’ve used high-end expensive brands like SkinCeuticals, Clarins, Caudalie etc… but I have to say that this moisturizer has actually given me the best anti-aging effect so far. Fine creases only appear when I smile (which is perfectly normal), but this product has managed to plump them away! So so in love. Please Luxe Botanics, come up with a body care range so I can be 100% convert 🙂

    I have found this product extremely good for a hot climate as it goes on very light and is immediately absorbed. I am noticing clearer, more translucent tone and was very pleased I bought 2 at once to see how it works on my skin. So far excellent.

  3. Kaitlyn M.

    I’ve used both moisturizers and I have zero negative things to say about either. Highly recommend! I first tried this brand thanks to Organic Bunny and I will continue to be a repeat customer now.

    Simple and effective. This is all I need in the mornings even after shaving. It is quickly absorbed leaving my skin smooth and silky.

    Loving the moisturiser. Light, calming scent. The gentle gel formulation doesn�۪t feel clammy on the skin and keeps my skin hydrated all day! Exactly what I need. Thank you, Luxe Botanics!

    The beauty of this moisturiser is that it is a simple yet sophisticated product that does the job without all the bells and whistles. I’ve always had trouble finding a suitable moisturiser for my dry skin. Creams make me break out in the humid weather and gel-cremes don’t give me enough hydration. Kigelia is the ‘just right’ moisturiser for my situation. The texture feels cooling and soothes itching I sometimes get in the morning (especially on the plane!) In fact I had a few satchets that I kept in the fridge for rainy days and it really does wonders to tired, stressed out dehydrated skin.
