Was skeptical at first

I have always steered away from using oils on my face because ever since puberty my skin has been like an oil slick. However, I decided to give it a go and it has been a game changer. Not only has it helped my oiliness but has rehydrated dry spots above my eyebrows. I got them waxed not too long and have been using this product since end of November and she said she could tell I took good care of my skin! The product smells great and a little goes a long way! So thankful for Gabi for helping me get into this better skin care routine.

Part of my weekly routine

After a few months using this tonic consistently, my skin suffers way less irritation. I have had best results pairing it with the toning mist and a moisturizer at night. I love knowing when my skin is inflamed that it will be smooth and pain free in the morning if i use this toner!

Great for my Dry Skin

I have struggled to find something that consistently helps ( summer and winter) keep my skin exfoliated without overly drying it. My skin is already pretty dry and my biggest challenge is keeping it moisturized and what I have learned over the years is you have to have a regular exfoliation of the skin to truly keep it motorized. The illuminating tonic has done just that and I can't sing its praises enough. I have been searching for years for a product like this and highly recommend you give it a try. On a side note, I do have eczema break outs here and there on my face, and this has been gentle enough to not inflame my eczema. I dont apply it to flare ups, but when my skins is not flared up this tonic works beautifully to keep my skins healthy and happy.

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.
