What else you need to know:
“The lotus has been cultivated in eastern Asia for over 3,000 years. The plant is considered sacred in many cultures, but I especially love the way the Buddhists regard it. They believe that it is the ultimate symbol of complete purification, as it journeys through muddy waters to rise above the surface and blossom into a stunning flower. Various parts of the lotus have been used in traditional herbal medicine for centuries to treat a number of skin diseases, most often inflammation. After doing clinical tests, we were stunned at this ingredient’s high levels of polyphenols, the most powerful antioxidants known to defend against wrinkle-causing free radicals.”—Lev Glazman, Fresh Co-founder

My Thoughts: I got this in a Glossybox, IPSY, or some other monthly subscription box a while ago but hadn't taken it out of the box to use. My skin had been exceptionally dry for most of December, with the dry heat from this craptacular winter doing a number on my hydration. My skin just seems to shrivel up and die for a few months every winter anyway, due to the heaters being cranked up full blast. In January I had to do something about it, but I was also in Florida where their is at least more humidity naturally. This was the perfect amount of hydration without it being pore clogging or feeling heavy on my skin. It sinks in quickly, and I just love the fresh cucumber smell!
I didn't notice much else with my skin other than hydration, and it was a sample size, so there wasn't enough for me to test it more than the month. I'll agree with the claims about hydration, revitalized, and healthier looking. My skin definitely looked much better after switching to this moisturizer for a month. I just wish it wasn't a jar product, as I really hate dipping my fingers into anything. No matter how clean your hands are, I just don't like using my fingers. You can use a q-tip, but that's wasteful.
Final Verdict: I like this product a lot and would never turn it down. I think it's a great moisturizer for lightweight hydration and would definitely consider purchasing the full size jar.
