Product Details Reduces appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging Moisturizes the skin deeply from within May be used as an all around face treatment  as an under eye treatment Get better tone and complexion Regain the brightness and glow lost with age My Thoughts on This Product This particular moisturizer was good. It did make my skin feel firmer, smoother, and fresher as stated on the bottle. As for flawless tone-no, I still have a few skin issues that I would love to be completely rid of. In due time, I guess... Is it age defying? The only way I could truly know is if I continue using it for a good while. I don't think I've been using it long enough to tell. This is another one that moisturizing very well under my eyes or all over my face. It doesn't feel too greasy or too heavy, nor
