Hi Faith,
would you mind telling me what the pro heal serum has done for your skin? It was reccommended to me through an online assesment so I've been eyeing it, but am not sure what it will do for my skin.

thanks a bunch!!

Of course! Before I started using the ProHeal, I was using the Super Serum and the Active Serum, along with the hydra cool. I thought that this was working great and I was hesitant to change the Active Serum for the Pro Heal, but that was what skinterra recommended. I have always had dry skin and a bit of an uneven/blotchy skin tone. The SS and the AS both helped this (blotchiness) a lot, but the dryness not so much. It didn't phase me too much though, cause I was used to layering on the moisturizer. Well, after switching to the ProHeal, I don't even need moisturizer anymore! I do use the Hydra Cool still though. My skin always feels and looks dewy now, and the red blotchiness is gone. I just love how my skin feels with so little product on it now...a huge change for me. The only down fall to this serum is the consistency. To be honest, I do like how it feels and how it feels on, but because it is a little thicker, it does not spread as easily, and you do use more of this than regular C serums. Try to get a sample from skinterra if you can, and give it a try. I really think it is a great product. Also, you might not want to use it every day at first if you have not used a product with retinol in it before. It took me a week before I used it everyday Very Happy

I should probably add that I still use the SS in the morning with the HC and then I use the PH at night, with the HC.
