"Groupon brought the masses.. and I'm glad it brought me. I got a groupon as a gift, and I delayed on booking a treatment, so I ended up getting products instead. And I have been pleasantly surprised:
- Anti-Aging Serum: A light serum that smells yummy and seems to work. It's a sorta gel kinda thing, but doesn't leave a sticky residue. I believe in preventative maintenance, and this seems to work well.
- Night Repairing Moisturizer lotion: Fabulous night cream that smells as good as the serum. With the cold winters of San Diego, my skin sometimes dries out, and this is perfect.
- Refining Mask: I use this about once a week, and it leaves my skin nice and tight.
All in all.. the products are of good quality and the above items range from $18-$35. A little on the higher end I suppose, but I'm satisfied with the products. Customer Service was excellent. They were very helpful,
and efficient. I was in a bit of a hurry, so they moved me right along." Natalie G. San Francisco, CA

"This is the first time I have taken the time to go on to yelp or any other site to right a review. I purchased two groupons from R&D in theory to 1) get a facial and 2) buy some product. After purchasing the product I canceled the facial because I love the product so much!!! I just used my second groupon to purchase more product! I have a new facial regime, starting with the daily cleanser (so nice it does not dry your skin out), the soothing toner, anti aging serum (in the morning), at night I use the daily cleanser along with the toner again followed by the brightening serum and repairing moisturizer. I have been told recently (I have been using this line for a month now) that my skin looks brighter and fresh. I love this product line and am sold on it. I just cant say enough good things about it, almost 100% natural, feels great, and provides results!!!! I will be a returning customer!" Brenda L. San Diego, CA

"Tried their skin care line recently and absolutely love it! It's been only a week since I started using the products and I can already see a huge difference in my skin. Got the cleanser, glycolic toner, masque, eye serum, anti-aging serum, night time and day time moisturizer. I've used a lot of products in the past and these by far (or so far) are the best! Plus the fact that they are so reasonably priced for the quality of the ingredients makes it a huge plus! Can't wait to try one of their facials". Ginger C. San Diego, CA

"I found RD Alchemy through Groupon. They offered $100 worth of products or services for $20, which allowed me to try out a wide range of products, and now I am completely hooked. The products are natural, but effective, the prices are reasonable, and the employees are always incredibly helpful and nice to talk to.
Here are my personal favorites:
1) Shampoo - I have very fine hair, so I need a shampoo that clarifies, but isn't drying. This is by far the best shampoo I've ever used. Their Kranion (mask and serum) products are also great. They provided me
some much-needed relief when I experienced some temporary scalp issues due to a medication I was taking.
2) Cleanser and Toner - There are two cleansers; I purchased the milky version (better for dry skin). I use it in conjunction with the refreshing toner. Together they get my skin clean without overdrying.
3) Brightening Serum and Repairing Moisturizer - I got the Brightening Serum in the hopes that it would help fade some sun damage and acne scaring. The product contains 1% Vitamin A (Retinol), which takes 4-6
weeks to take full effect. I have been using the serum and moisturizer for about 2-3 weeks and so far I am quite pleased with the results. It's helping to control my acne and heal some of the scaring. I can't tell if my
sun spots have faded, but overall my skin looks refreshed. I have very dry skin and I was worried this product might overdry my skin or cause flaking, but it doesn't (which is quite a feat for a retinol-based product).
4) Blemish Pen - This product is great if you have one of those swollen, painful pimples. I use it at night to kill bacteria and reduce redness and swelling. By morning the pimple is noticeably smaller.
Bottom line: If you're someone who cares about using natural products, you can't beat RD Alchemy. For the money, it's the best value out there. I have tried quite a few of their products (not just the ones listed
above), and 9 out of 10 times, I liked the product enough to make it a staple of my beauty routine. You can't go wrong!" Jacquelyn L. San Diego, CA
"The oil drops worked great on an old scar I had on my chin". Within a few weeks it was so much better even my girlfriend noticed". Jason M. Imperial Beach, CA
"Their vitamin c serum is the bomb. I've used it for about 2 weeks now and it really does work.. trust me I was sceptical, but am always willing to try anything that can work wonders :) It worked on my face then I tried on my chest and it worked, now trying on my arms and hands lol. You gotta get you some its well worth it!" Maria C. San Diego, CA
