Every year around this time, I am thirsting for a little bit of warmth and sun (the blizzards just don’t do it for me, and my skin takes the brunt of the harsh weather!). The weeks creep by slowly but surely with the promise of spring just around the corner. This bit of foreshadowing prompts me to do some prep in anticipation of brighter days, and my face is just itching for a pick-me-up. I love EVE LOM for its quality and effective innovations, and the Brightening Cream is no exception. The idea behind the cream is to bring radiance to skin while tweaking hyperpigmentation and hydrating. I’ve been using the cream for over four weeks now, and am enjoying my even, brighter skin tone and a smoother complexion. My routine each evening includes cleansing and exfoliation (twice a week), and applying the brightening cream in a circular motion concentrating on upward strokes and covering my neck as well. While I sleep, the cream is hard at work, and I wake up feeling youthful and hydrated!
