With the focus on China now, I offer this historical skin tale: During the Qing dynasty, empresses used to send men to the top of the mountains in search of golden root, a red flowering herb legendary for its youth-inducing properties.
If only Wei East had been around then. The sought-after herb is bottled in the Golden Root Renewal Daily Restoration Wear 2-step system.
Here's how it works: Just squeeze a few drops of the Daily Restoration Wear Serum onto one of the Beauty Treatment Pads (which are already saturated with golden root and other herbs). Now massage over your face and neck and follow with moisturizer.
Immediately, your skin looks smoother and feels firmer, and it doesn't sting like a lot of those other skin-refining pads do.For their own sanity, I hope those empresses and their mountain men can't see us now.
