I was not familiar with the Phytomer brand before I began shopping at Beauty Bridge. I am tempted to try new brands and new products when there is a free gift with purchase incentive. When that' is combined with a sale, I'm sold ! I love to feel like I am getting a bargain when I splurge on a new luxurious product.
Phytomer White Lumination Radiance Smoothing Lotion is a great toner. I find the name of the product to be misleading, as I take the word "lotion" to mean a thick liquid designed to be absorbed into the skin. From the product description on the Beauty Bridge site, I understood that this was, in fact, a toner before I made my purchase. I hope that other consumers don't purchase this expecting a lotion type moisturizer. That gripe aside, this is a great toner. It cleans the deep dirt that cleansers may miss and helps to tighten pores. It helps to remove dead skin cells revealing a younger skin surface. It helps to provide a smoother skin texture.
I did not find that Phytomer White Lumination Radiance Smoothing Lotion helped to lighten my age spots at all or that it did anything to make my skin more luminous in any way. Perhaps if it is used consistently with the rest of the Phytomer White Lumination product line the effects are cumulative.
I've been using Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2 for years. Phytomer's toner seems equivalent to my Clinique staple. Considering that Phytomer, even on sale, is far more expensive, I don't plan on repurchasing this item.
