V&M Naturals

“I would like to initially say that my UA is in a very worst state. I'm "balbon" and had UA hair since I was in elementary, so you must imagine how abused my armpit is from years of plucking and shaving… It is so bad that on my younger years, and even now, I don't really wear sleeveless outside, and if I wore one, should be accompanied with a blazer or cardigan. Several years of searching, I already tried different products, from organic to non-organic, even imported ones, but none of them worked. Some even gave me an awful odor that made me ditch the item immediately.. But as I came across this CPC+G oil from V&M, I thanked God for He now showed me the light and answer to one of my many problems. Started using this as soon as I received it, 9 days to be exact, and I can really see the difference on my UA! No kidding, no commercialism, it really showed light on my armpit. I can't believe how effective this product is!!! Now I can show it to my bf whom I dated for 6 yrs but never had a glance at my UA (hahaha). It was not that light as of now but I can proudly say that religious application of CPC+G oil could really solve my life dilemma. Already ordered a second bottle since it was on sale. BTW, this product is very thrifty due to its packaging, and I think it could last me a month or two. Using it one drop on each UA twice a day. i just want to hoard before it's too late. Hehehe. Thanks to V&M for your amaaaazing products! Much love also to beautymnl! ❤️,” Lyka said. . . Eliminating dark spots, blemishes, and dullness of the skin on the face and all over the body should never be a painful experience.
