I’ve been using this serum and moisturizer from Body Merry for almost a month and so far I like them. I’ll start with the Pro-A Serum. It’s supposed to help with wrinkles, fine lines, aging/sun spots, moisture, general aging and improve the overall texture of your skin. Some retinol products can dry your skin out even with added products that help with moisture. This is not one of those products. While this absorbs completely, it doesn’t dry your skin out. It just makes my skin feel smooth and soft. The Retinol Surge Moisturizer is supposed to help with the same skin problems as the Pro-A Serum but it also improves the texture of your skin and your skin tone. It evens out the color of the skin and helps with acne discoloration, sun damage, hyperpigmentation and other skin discolorations. I really like this retinol moisturizer. It’s not oily at all, it completely absorbs into the skin without leaving any residue and makes the skin look supple and plump. It has helped lighted the acne scars I have as well. Body Merry is a cruelty free company and all of their products are made in the US. They have a 90 day money back guarantee as well. If you don’t like your product you have 90 days to return it for a full refund. No need to return the bottle.
