Review Process: I used it nightly and occasional mornings to clean skin.

Experience: The Intense Defense Serum felt cool and lightweight to the skin. It absorbed quickly into the skin. Most times I used it by itself. A few evenings I added a hydrating moisture over it (if I was feeling dry). I did not notice any scent to the serum.

Perceived Effectiveness: I found the serum effective at smoothing out my skin tone and texture. Overall, my skin is more even and youthful.

Similar Product Comparison: I would say that if you have an oily, normal, or combination skin type, this may work for you. I am fairly sensitive and this product worked just fine. If your skin tends to be a bit drier, you may want to add a cream on top.

Recommendations: I do recommend the Epionce Intense Defense Serum to be applied during the evenings on clean skin. If you are dry, add a moisturizer on top. I am wary of wearing too much during the day with Vitamin C as an ingredient, as it can make skin more sensitive to the sun. As always, wear a sunscreen during the day on your face.

Conclusion: This is a product I will continue to use and would recommend to someone looking for an anti-aging product that is easy to add to any skin care routine.

Characteristics: I did not notice a scent to the shampoo, but I did find the conditioner to have a nice peppermint scent that was invigorating. I wish the KeraCell shampoo had a similar scent.

Review Process: On several-day-old dirty hair, I washed and conditioned my hair in the shower.

Experience: I liked the lightweight feel of both products. The scent on the conditioner was a light peppermint that I longed for the shampoo to have too.

Perceived Effectiveness: I typically use more hydrating formulas, so this was a nice change and my hair had more wave & bounce to it. I definitely had to lather up multiple times with the shampoo to feel like my hair got good and clean. The conditioner felt great and had a lightweight moisture.

Recommendations: Use as often as you wash your hair.😉

Conclusion: I wish the scent was stronger but I did enjoy the way my hair felt lightweight and clean after.
