This is my favorite face scrub!! I was skeptical at first by the name "illuminating" I didn't really know what that meant, especially as a dark skinned Black women, often time glowing skin was often marketed to me as a characteristic of having light or white skin. Other products I tried before were clearly gimmicks, relying on white models and good lighting to make the products seem to work. But this product actually works, after i gently scrub my skin with it, I see my skin absorb all the moisture, and literally illuminate from the inside out, my pore close up and the texture of my skin is vastly improve (smoother, softer, supple, tight, fades my acne scar). The turmeric is anti-inflammatory, so unlike other face scrubs that can cause red irritation on the skin, this gentle walnut exfoliant calms the skin down and does not irritate at all. That is the power of the illuminating glow, it comes from the health of your skin improving with healing ingredients. This product does that for me. As long as I can afford this product and it works for my skin, I will be buying it!
