    I have a question. Just to clarify, you recommend massaging the face with V-6 and the essential oils before you tone? I was a little confused by this and wanted to ask to make sure.
    I noticed you added in () later after toning that you could add oils neat at that point. This is without the V-6, I assume.
    If you could clear this up for me I would really appreciate it.
    Thanks!

      Yes, massage the face with V-6 and eo’s of choice, then exfoliate with the satin scrub, then use the toner to bring your skin pH back to normal before applying more products. You may apply the oils neat (without a carrier oil) or diluted – you’re preference.

    Hello! I have very dry skin and also some dark spots around my upper lip and forehead area. at the same time, i also want to address wrinkles and anti-aging for my skin, Would Sheerlume be a good choice for me to apply as the moisturizer of choice? how should I alternate with Boswellia and Sandalwood?

      I believe Sheerlume is used under your moisturizer. It would definitely help address your concerns. I like to alternate Boswellia during warmer months and Sandalwood in the winter. Just my preference though!
