Such a cool concept

I took this test in late May and received my results in early April, much faster than I was anticipating! Since taking the test, I can refer back to my skin health profile to see which skincare ingredients as well as food ingredients I should be using and avoiding. There are so many other features on the skin health report that were so fascinating to learn about my microbiome.
I still use the serum to this day and it has completely changed my skin for the better! This product has become a staple in my routine that won't be changing anytime soon.

This Product Changed My Skin!

Most recently, I have battled persistent acne, and it seemed nothing I tried could truly clear my skin. New breakouts appeared weekly, and I grew increasingly frustrated as expensive cleansers, serums, prescription medications, and facials failed to provide lasting results.

Then, I discovered this facial product, and it has absolutely transformed my skin! The breakouts have ceased entirely, and my complexion is the clearest it's ever been. I have integrated these serums into my daily skincare routine, and I will never go back.
