I was using the Island of the Moon Nectar to help my hormone irritated and broken out skin. It's amazing! I didn't think of it as a treatment for reactive, acne-prone skin until now - I was using it as an anti-aging serum, but now I know it does both! Woot! :-D - Sabrina (Brie) Zimmerman - thebrunetteecodiva.com
I love it! - Diane S.
