The product boosts your skin care regimen in 3 key ways:

Thoughts: When I first received the email, I was intrigued. It sounds interesting and unique, and I definitely need to brighten my dull skin.
Here's a closer look at the pump.
Here's a closer look at the chamber with the powder on the top. This is a before picture before I did my first pump.
Here's a closer look at the chamber without the powder. This is an after picture after the first pump or I should say after many pumps.
Here's a closer look at the product on my hand.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no noticeable scent while applying. Then again I mix the product with a moisturizer. The scent with change with the smell of the moisturizer. The one I'm using at the moment doesn't have a strong scent. For that reason, most likely there's no scent either from the moisturizer or IllumaBoost. I just sniffed the product and it has a slight smell. Since it's so light, it's hard to tell but I would have to say it's on the floral side. Secondly, I like the packaging. It's so tiny and adorable. It also comes in a pump and you have full control of the quantity that you pump. Best of all, it's sanitary-safe. When I first read the direction, I was so confused. It mentions to pump to open the chamber to release the powder. What chamber? What powder? The first bottle I did as the direction said and was still confused until I noticed I was able to see the sides. Yes, I'm not the best at noticing things. I'm just so thankful there's two in the packaging. That's when I was able to compare the before and after the first pump. There's powder on top separated with the solution. The direction makes so much sense now. Honestly, I think it's pretty cool. Sometimes you use products and it's been laying there for months or even years. You don't know how effective the products are. I love that we're able to blend the powder, Niacinamid and Vitamin C, with the solution and know that it's fresh. It also mentions to use the product within 15 days. With that said, it comes with a sturdy cover. I cannot see it bread or open unless you are rough with the packaging. For that reason, it's travel-friendly. Third, the consistency is liquidity. It doesn't move that quickly that you have to work fast. I usually pump once for both morning and night. I take my moisturizer in my hand and pump once on top. Then I mix it with my fingers and spot it all over my face. I noticed the moisturizer becomes less thick. At this moment, I'm using a cream moisturizer. After I pump the IllumaBoost, it becomes more lotion-like. For that reason, I think it'll be great for all skin types. If you use heavy moisturizer, you can soften it with this product. With that said, it's easy to use. Fourth and since I've been using this product, I noticed my skin looks more alive. I have fine lines in-between my eyebrows. No matter what I use, it would lessen but it wouldn't ever diminish. Since I use so many products, it can be a mixture of these but I honestly think it's this particular product. The fine lines between my eyebrows has diminished. My face looks smoother, cleaner, and it glows. I cannot wait to see the final results after I finish both containers. Lastly, I am not disappointed. Since I've been introduced to Nerium, I became a fan. I love their eye mask and day cream. Now I can understand why my friend talks about this brand a lot! She loves it so much that she started selling this brand.
