Actual reviews from staffs at Wishtrend

"Noticed a difference in the skin's texture the next day" First of all, love that it is a cream with a very light texture with a hydrating finish. It feels like I can even layer this Hibiscus 63 Cream with another moisturizer because of how light it is. I went to bed after application and I've noticed that my skin's texture was more smooth and clear. I think this would be a great cream especially for those who dpesn't exjoy exfoliation because it will do twp at once! Exfoliation & hydration! - Alex, Brand Manager at Wishtrender "My makeup goes on better than before!" After testing out the product for a period of time, I've noticed a difference in sebum level on specific areas like around the nose, chin and forehead. I focusd application especially on the areas where I struggle with sebum and oil level and the result was satisfying and I've noticed a difference whenever I applied base makeup. - Joy, Producer at Wishtrender
