    Illuminating Skin Love

    The Illuminating Tonic makes my skin absolutely lumnious. I use it nightly after washing and spritzing with Bright Body's Aruyvedic Cleanser and Toning Mist. No one can believe that I am 61!

    My Must Have

    This is one of my absolute must-have skincare items. I have had problematic skin since puberty: acne, cystic acne, scarring and redness from the same. I struggled for the rest of my adult life with it using every topical treatment with little result and more irritation. I was convinced that any exfoliating acid was too harsh for my face until the Illuminating Tonic. I have been using it for about 6 months now and the changes have been amazing! My scars are healing - deep scars that I thought would require expensive treatments to correct and the fine lines are smoothing.


    I’ve been using this tonic, clear skin potion, Pitta oil, and clarifying face wash and I’m stunned! I have zits, melasma, combination sensitive skin. I have tried everything and thought no matter what I use my skin just keeps being my skin- until I switched to bright body! My skin is soft clear even and bright for the first time since I was a baby! You can feel this stuff working the second you put it on, it feels so nice and the results are even nicer.

    So far, so smooth

    I've been using Illuminating Tonic for a couple of weeks and I notice my skin appears somewhat smoother, softer and less dull. I'm not sure if I'm 'glowing' yet, but I like what a see so far and will continue to use this serum regularly, as I know Gabi puts only the healthiest ingredients in her products.
