"I was pretty stoked to check out the Prescriptives Super Line Preventor Xtreme because I'm always looking to diminish the wrinkles that I see slowly sneaking onto my visage. But, I also happen to be extremely skeptical of topical wrinkle reducers. The directions on this very cute pink bottle say to apply on face and neck morning and night followed by moisturizer.

The smell is very strong and distinct, a bit like strong floral and nail polish remover. Not fab. I only used the product for a couple weeks, but I noticed a serious drying effect in my laugh line area and had to stop using it. I continued use on my forehead, and maybe the lines have decreased a bit. I will definitely continue using the product, but I'd only suggest this in the summer when it is less dry and I'd stay away if you have sensitive skin."

Prescriptives Vibrant-C Skin Brightening Eye Cream
Vibrant-C Eye Cream

$38.00

"I have been using the Prescriptives Vibrant-C Skin Brightening Eye Cream for almost two weeks, applying the eye cream both at night before bed and in the morning. I have noticed a considerable difference in less then two weeks, reducing the appearance of dark circles under the eye area. Having darker olive color skin I think I am prone to have this problem.

I am totally sold on this product. I would like to see this product sold in the form of a tube or jar, though. The pump doesn't allow you to have much control on the amount of cream that comes out and for $38.00 you wouldn't want any to go to waste."

"I have tried the Prescriptives All Clean Fresh Foaming Cleanser four times and the result is always the same. It foams nicely and removes dirt and makeup. The only downfall is that it leaves my skin feeling like there is a waxy residue that I had to wash away with soap and water. I would not purchase this product. But who knows, maybe it would not feel that way with someone else. Every one has different skin and reacts differently to products."

"Prescriptives Vibrant-C Skin Brightening Cream Moisturizer was wonderful. I was very hesitant when trying this product because my skin so sensitive to moisturizers, but the cream helped even out my skin tone and surprisingly got rid of most of my blemishes. This product gave me a fresh natural glow every time I applied it on clean skin, and it also peeled my skin in small patches making my new skin much more radiant and even-toned."
