“After using the product for a few weeks, I found that my complexion looked clearer, my blemishes shrunk, and—most impressively—my skin tone was greatly improved. With regular use, my usually dull skin seemed to absolutely glow.”

Blemish Control – Purifying Gel, The Educated Beauty’s Thoughts:

We were awestruck after our research: oftentimes, a long ingredient list on natural products is a bad thing, but with Jadience it’s a blessing. With its conditioning, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antimicrobial/antibacterial, and toning properties, we couldn’t wait to give Jadience Purifying Gel a spin.

The product itself is slightly more liquid than gel. The consistency reminded me of non-greasy, non-sticky mixture of honey and oil. The divine Chinese herbs and lemongrass fragrance give the purifying gel a pleasant scent without being overwhelming. It easily spread over my skin and absorbed quickly; smooth and clean-feeling skin is an absolute immediate result. Only two drops were necessary to treat my entire face—at a price of $28.00, it’s great for a little bit to go a long way.

After using the product for a few weeks, I found that my complexion looked clearer, my blemishes shrunk, and—most impressively—my skin tone was greatly improved. With regular use, my usually dull skin seemed to absolutely glow.  As I was using Jadience Purifying Gel during a somewhat stressful time for me, I was especially impressed to find such results. I might not have been calm, but my skin sure was!
