Love this cream MINUS THE DIMETHICONE!! Get the DAY CREAM version instead!

Everything about this cream is so perfect, including most of the ingredients and makes your skin glow MINUS the DIMETHICONE which stops the skin renewal process! It would be great if Source Naturals switch the DIMETHICONE with vegetable glycerin instead or just leave it out altogether!! However, I found that the DAY CREAM version does not have DIMETHICONE, however it doesn't also have panthenol (vitamin B) and also cocoa butter either. But I much rather use the Day cream version without the DIMETHICONE as DIMETHICONE prematurely ages your skin by trapping in bacteria and dirt. The DIMETHICONE makes the cream spread easier but I don't mind it being a little pasty as the DIMETHICONE makes my skin feel greasy. I'm not sure if this is related, but after using this cream, I got an eye stye for the first time in my life. Makes sense as the DIMETHICONE traps everything under the skin by making a plastic silicone layer over your face. This cream might be good for winter in windy situations when skiing! Otherwise the citric scent of the cream is nice and I love the vitamin c and msm and coenzyme q10 content. With this night cream version, it is necessary to do facial masks with alpha hydroxy or other agent that cleanses the face. However I have to say within a week of using this cream,my skin has been glowing and looking great! I recently bought the DAY CREAM version without the DIMETHICONE so will update and compare notes later. UPDATE: I have tried the day version of this cream, and I love it so much more! It is just as moisturising and makes your skin glow without the heavy feeling. I would use the night cream version for cold windy situations, esp for skiing etc, but for everyday and night I much prefer the skin eternal day cream.

Good for moisture and takes a week of using it before you see results. It is deeply moisturising and did fade some reddish spots I had on my face. I have oily t zone, and this was perfect for me at night. I use this in conjunction with Thayers Rose Witch Hazel and that is all I need! Super easy skin care. UPDATE: I found that it was actually too oily and after a couple of weeks of use, gave me large pores! I think this is great for spot treatment, but to use all over the face is a bit much unless you have very dry skin. Instead what I found was that using Nutribiotic grapefruit seed extract directly over my face after moisturising had the best effect on skin turnover and giving me the glow that I wanted.
I use this for my face

I pop the soft gels and use as a moisturiser for my face or red spots. Works really well!
Good stuff, puts me to bed immediately

Although I need to take 1000 mg to have any effect. This puts me right to bed and I wake up feeling refreshed
Good product but not one to use everyday
Also it loses its efficacy after opening and must use within two months so buying a smaller one would be ideal

got rid of my eye problems, red veins in eyes, and gave me more energy
Warning: contains pthalates!!!!!!
I love source naturals but was shocked to learn this product contains pthalates in the enteric coating!!!! Pthalates has been banned in the EU due to its ability to disrupt the endocrine systems and birth defects! As an experiment I broke two capsules and emerged them in water and the coating on the capsules did not dissolve!!!! They are plastic people!! You are ingesting plastic!!!! No wonder I felt ill. Beware of all serrapeptase products with enteric coatings!!! From now on I'm switching to nattokinase which is effective without the enteric coating!!!
Good for eyes, mood, high blood pressure, insulin resistance and yeast infections
High quality. This stuff works great for eyes, elevating mood, yeast infections and regulating insulin and lowering blood pressure The amount is perfect. I take 3 with vitamin b complex. Since taking it my skin, nails and hair have never looked better. Taurine is a sulfur based amino acid that creates an anti inflammatory response which alleviates a lot of medical conditions. Thank you Taurine!!!
Most awesome skin hydrator ever!

I use this all over my body and my hands. It takes awhile to soak in, but so worth it! I stand in front of a fan while it's drying. I live in a cold climate and get very dry hands. After using this stuff, my hands are soft and perfectly moisturised! LOVE IT!!!! Please don't discontinue this product, I love all the Nubian Heritage body butters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Way better than the other stuff out there with DIMETHICONE and other silicone fillers!!!! This stuff is so pure, my skin loves it!!!!!! And NO, I don't work for this company or affiliated with this company. I have used a lot of skin products and this moisturiser is THE BEST THING OUT THERE!!!!!!
Good for women, and prevents PMS symptoms!!

One a day keeps PMS and other female issues away: eg, tender breasts, bloating etc
good value for price

seems to work as nicely as the other nattokinase out there. my only wish is that it would also include vitamin K2- as that is the vitamin responsible to redirecting calcium to bones and removing calcium plaque from the heart and arteries as the combination is present in nattofood.
BEST CREAM EVER!!!!

i had the night cream version but disliked the dimethicone content. however, this version does not have dimethicone, and this is excellent for skin! makes it soft, smooth, luscious and extremely hydrated! since using this, my skin looks the way it did when i was in middle school!
