**I was sent this product to review and all of these thoughts are my honest feedback.**

Ingredients: manuka honey, herb infused oil (raspberry leaf, lavender flowers, comfrey leaf, chamomile flowers, rose petals, calendula flowers, olive oil, avocado oil, macadamia oil), mango butter, ceatryl alcohol, beeswax, aloe vera water, aloe vera gel, co enzyme q10 vitamin c&e, honeysuckle blend, sea kelp extract, soy-rice peptides, green tea eco extract, sea buckthorn oil, sea ferment, essential oils (turmeric, nutmeg, clove, ginger, cinnamon, carrot seed oil)
How To Use: Apply to clean face and décolletage in the morning and as needed. Once absorbed, your skin will develop a golden glow while the ingredients work beneath the surface to repair damaged cells.
Scent? It's a strong spiced smell. Like a chai latte with lots of cinnamon and spices. I personally really enjoy it. The smell doesn't linger either.
Texture? The texture is a grainy thick creme. The grains are solidified oils, they melt away as you rub it on your skin. It's a really luxurious sensation. It isn't heavy and a little goes a long way.
My Experience: I've been using this product for about two weeks now. I put it on after my moisturizer and on my neck and décolletage morning and night. I can honestly say that almost immediately I saw a difference with my skin after the first use. My redness and inflammation from a recent breakout/rash had calmed so much, it looked like I had fast forwarded a few days of healing. After a week of use, my skin was clear of redness and breakouts. This was in conjunction with my morning routine and eating well, but at the rate my skin healed, I knew it was in no small part to this creme! We all know that eating right and eliminating certain foods will prevent breakouts. I don't know if this creme prevents breakouts, but I can certainly attest that it helps heal them!
It's got an amazing array of ingredients. Manuka honey and turmeric are the big ones and they are powerhouses at healing inflammation and redness. I do a DIY face mask with raw honey and turmeric at home sometimes when I feel like my skin is irritated. The DIY honey mask is great in case you had a bad reaction to something(fast food or bad foundation for example?) But it's awfully messy. This is a great, daily solution to healing your skin and giving it a super boost of nutrients (No wonder this product was nominated for Indie Beauty Expo's Best In Show award)
Notes: Rub it in until all the granules are gone.
Overall: I really love this product. It worked so well at helping to heal my skin, I know it's going to be a permanent fixture in my bathroom. It's also really affordable. Which only makes me happier knowing I can recommend a wonderful product to folks knowing it won't break their bank. If you want something that will help heal your skin's inflammation, this is the product to buy.
I reached out to ULIV to see if I could review this product for a reason. After seeing the ingredients list and the product's recent nominations at the Indie Beauty Expo (Top Buyer Picks of 2017 & Best In Show) I had to investigate. After the first attempt at sending me the product failed, they were happy to send me another. Which only speaks to their pride in the product and kind of company they are.
