Expectations: I anticipated to note definitive outcomes when it comes to pores and skin tone and general hydration. The model guarantees the machine delivers serums in a simpler means, and given the tech and value, I used to be cautiously optimistic. At $300, it’s one thing I anticipated to really love.
What disillusioned me: I don’t discover the applicator very simple to make use of and I really feel just like the product spreads all around the room after I use it.
