I have used the Osmotics Anti-Radical Age Defense Barrier Longevity Complex (whew!) daily for almost 2 months now on my face, neck, and chest area and this is what I have found
The packaging is very pretty which makes me want to use this product, but at the end of the day, it is how it performs that really makes me want to purchase it. I was happy to see the jar contained more than 1 ounce - it was 1.7 ounces; usually an ounce seems to disappear so quickly.
Upon opening the jar I was pleasantly surprised that there was virtually no scent. I like that because with some face creams I have used I seem smell it all day long.
The package advertises that in weeks I would see a healthier, younger skin and that is not what I found. The packaging also says that in years you'll look a decade younger. Are they kidding - who has years to wait for results? If I am going to spend $100+ for a product, I expect to see results fairly quickly.
It was an impressive list of ingredients, but I was unimpressed with the results. Perhaps my skin looked slightly fresher, or maybe I just got some good sleep over the last month - the results were not noticeable enough to make me feel it was because of the Osmotics cream.
On the positive side - I love it as a regular moisturizer. It went on wonderfully smooth and was absorbed into my skin very quickly. So if you are one of those always-in-a-hurry types like me that need to apply their makeup right after they moisturize, then you are in luck with this product, but I can find quality moisturizers that do just that with a much cheaper pricetag.
Overall.........great moisturizer with perhaps some added benefits which are not quite noticeable, but I would rather spend my money trying something else.
