"a diamond in the rough"

a few months ago we added a reviews page to the website where we share customer's testimonials. i always, always respond when someone takes the time to write down their feedback for berlin skin products, and through the process i have met some incredible people. if berlin skin were to end today, i could confidently say it was 110% worth it because of the positive impact it's had on our customer's skin - and also for the new friends i've met along the way. but i envision a long future ahead for berlin skin and reviews like the one below are all the motivation i need to keep going. i related with mary's story so deeply as my own struggle with acne in the past was also devastating and felt hopeless at times.

 read mary's story below. it's powerful, humbling, and inspiring.

"i am 63 and have had acne since I was 12. over the years i've tried everything: from seeing dermatologists and estheticians to using high-end products and even taking pills specifically formulated for acne sufferers - all to no avail. about a month ago I discovered your products, and the changes in my skin have been phenomenal! decreased pore size, amazing balance of oil production, better texture, and best of all, no breakouts! when I began using your products I had been experiencing one of the worst breakouts ever. for two months I tried everything to help it heal but nothing worked. I'd given up hope of ever having clear skin when I happened upon your products. i immediately noticed a difference after the first use, and in this last month my skin has continued to heal from that horrible break out.  you can't even tell I had a break out! the effect that acne has had on my life has been extremely negative, both personally as well as professionally.  but today I can look at my face in the mirror and not wince. and tomorrow morning when I wake up I will be able to look in the mirror and see clear skin instead of yet another break out. this is all due to your miraculous products. thank you for changing my life for the better-truly. those who don't have persistent acne don't understand how devastating it's effects can be. i've had perfect strangers say to me: "what happened to your face?" but now I can look forward to clear, healthy skin. please don't ever stop making these incredible products! to find products that are reasonably priced, beautifully packaged, simple to use and amazingly effective is nothing short of a miracle, especially given the over abundance of skin care products that we are bombarded with on a daily basis - all of which I have tried and none have come close to honoring the claims they make for clear, beautiful skin. berlin skin is truly a diamond in the rough, one that has literally given me a new lease on life.  to go out and meet the world each day without embarrassment and self consciousness is a blessing. thank you, thank you, thank you, berlin skin!" - MARY, 63
