This skin care regimen is the truth for medium to dark brown skin tones! I have been using the system for 15 days and I have already seen more progression than I ever have in my whole life. I have tried every product under the sun until my aesthetician introduced me to this brand. The Mandelic Acid is making me peel and flake like crazy, but this means progression is taking place. The acid is causing my sub dermal acne to re-surface, allowing to target these issues, as well as my stubborn hyperpigmentation. If these are the results in just 15 days, I can’t wait to see what this regimen will result in after three months! I’m excited!
Firstly, this product is quite expensive. Secondly, for the price a (nightly) moisturizer should have been included or at least some instructions on what moisturizer can be used with this system. For example, what products (hyalauronic acid, avocado oil, dimethicone, etc.) to use. Thirdly, I understand that by week 4, the user should be (hopefully) using the Vivant system both am and pm. However the user should be advised what other products/ingredients are safe to use during the other weeks of treatment. Or if no other products should be used.
Now on to the pros..
I have only been using these products for a couple of weeks. Immediately (first use) my skin's texture was visibly smoother and physically smoother. The products did not burn or sting me. About a week into using the product I noticed a small amount of peeling around my mouth (I understand, this is normal). I have not noticed any change in color with my dark marks yet (I know this is also normal).
