    Yes. Generation Glow many be used morning OR evening. If using in the morning always remember to follow with your SPF.

    Gentle but Powerful

    I love this product! It’s light and milky yet it exfoliates and resurfaces the skin. I would highly recommended it if your skin feels dull and you want to achieve a smoother and brighter complexion.
