More on glutathione:
- it is the major antioxidant produced by the body. Antioxidants such as vitamins C or E cannot be made by your body and in fact could not work properly if glutathione were not present.
- Our immune systems depend on a steady supply of glutathione. Without it, our immune defenses become weakened.
- It is important in detoxifying many substances including heavy metals, breakdown products of cigarettes and automobile exhaust, many cancer-causing agents, and a multitude of pollutants and toxins we encounter on a daily basis.
- The major source of energy produced in our cells is derived from tiny structures called mitochondria. These mitochondria would literally burn up without the presence of glutathione.

^That's all the ingredients lists of all my products (just to be clear lol). I've never used so many products at once, and probably won't continue to. But why not try, you know?

MM, I love intense PIE! lol.gif

Sounds like a risky gamble, and I don't like gambling, but sometimes you win. I hope you win!

So it sounds like the BB cream actually does improve the condition of your skin, and is not just a neutral/safe product? hm... Though I'm not a fan of chemical stews, I can't say there wouldn't be times where I would love for my skin to look a bit better then it would, and I never have success with "acne safe" concealers, so this might be the best bet. Do you think it sinks in well enough?

Sounds good Sarah! Less is more, you know? I'm finding my skin is clearing up quite well just with mandelic serum, sulfur serum, cocobasil toner, 5% fruity exfo, and HA serum, and I may be able to even cut out the sulfur serum eventually, not sure. Less is more, though a product addict like myself always loves new stuff redface.gif I still may go for the healing banana serum since I don't have a healing product, but maybe I don't need it eusa_shifty.gif
