I have to unscrew the whole thing to use as the odd pump was broken when arrived. The smell is odd though doesnt linger. Ive been using this product for over 2months now and honestly there is no difference
This is a solid Vitamin-C based moisturizer. It makes my face feel very sticky for a while after applying, so I hold up any application of foundation or other makeup until it gets more fully absorbed into my skin. Remembering to make time for that is the hard part!Other than that, I think "Radiance" in the name is an apt descriptor. My face looks brighter and my skin feels as though it's being mildly invigorated, perhaps owing to the citrus components. The citrus components are also what gives this moisturizer a nice, light scent that leans toward orange notes.Antioxidants in C protect the skin from environmental damage and the peptides help stimulate collagen - both things that will hopefully see a nice payoff in the future, but do not hurt now.The Mikel Kristi line seems to be very well-thought out in terms of the ingredients in the products and I feel as though I'm not only protecting my skin but nourishing it as well.
Mikel Kristi C Radiance Moisturizer states it's for all skin types. While it's great for my super dry skin, it might be greasy for someone who already has oily skin. the pump isn't the most user friendly but the skin care feels great. It moisturizes my super dry skin and makes me feel soft and hydrated. I like it provides some sun screen, not enough for a Florida day if I'm going to be out a lot, but enough to feed the bird feeders, walk to the mailbox, short trips.
There are a lot of things I like about this vitamin C moisturizer. To open the top, rotate it and the middle comes up, rotate and it slides back down inside. I like the thickness of the moisturizer, it glides onto my skin. The citrus smell from the oils they use is very nice smelling. I use it morning and night to give hydration to my dry skin, it does turn a little red but goes away. My skin does feel firmer and smoother.
A decent moisturizer although not my favorite. Smells strongly of grapefruit (or bitter orange). Absorbs well into my skin. The bottle is a little fussy, and it can be hard to dispense the product.
