ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid) cream, one of Vasseur's signature and all-time most popular porducts, is designed to is designed to brighten, smooth pores, and beautify the skin.
Alpha lipoic acid is one of the most powerful anti-aging, antioxidant, anti-inflammatories available. Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is called “the universal antioxidant” because it is both fat- and water-soluble. This means that ALA is easily absorbed through the lipid layers of the skin and works equally well as a free-radical fighter in the cell plasma membrane and in the watery interiors of the cell.
Further, it is 400 times stronger than vitamins E and C combined (both of which are renowned for their antioxidant properties).
ALA has great benefit when applied in a topical lotion. When put in an eye lotion, it will greatly decrease under eye circles and puffiness. ALA will also reduce swelling and puffiness in the face. Its anti-inflammatory effects reduce redness and blotchiness, resulting in an evening out of skin tone, often making foundation unnecessary. ALA will shrink pore size and impart a healthy radiance to the skin. ALA is excellent at decreasing the appearance of lines and wrinkles; its capacity to regulate production of nitric oxide, which controls blood flow to the skin, transforms the complexion from dull, pasty and pale to vibrant and glowing.

This is my second time I purchase this product. I have tried several skincare products and all of them have failed, but this one. I love that it doesn't make my face feel greasy and instead feel smooth and it helps to keep away any breakouts. I will certainly keep on purchasing this product!

I ordered with Azelaic acid, and wow..this is truly a miracle worker. I use all over face once or twice a week, then use as a spot treatment to maintain.
I plan on ordering a larger size without Azelaic acid to use regularly. Loved the sample of both the night creme and DMAE cream as well.

I work in the beauty industry and have tried many popular skincare lines over the years. After reading many reviews about Vasseur products, I decided to give them a try. I am hooked! My skin has always been healthy, but it looks much healthier and more radiant now. I just love that these products are not filled with tons of harmful chemicals and do not feel greasy on the skin.
I am certainly a lifetime customer now.

This is my second time purchasing the ALA cream, and this time I bought the largest bottle I could! I use it in the AM and PM. I have oily acne prone skin with large pores, fine lines, acne scars, and uneven skin tone. This cream has been a huge help. It hasn't caused any breakouts, and the tone of my skin has improved enough that all I wear is a tinted sunscreen and a dusting of powder to remove the shine. This is the first time in 8 years I have gone without foundation!

I think the ALA, Super Serum and DMAE are amazing. I decided to have try the botox to make me feel better since I had two back surgeries in six months to make me feel better.
Honestly I would rather have these creams from Vassuer. I really feel they did more for my face than fillers, they work great!

I sometimes stop using the ALA cream because it's expensive and I question whether it makes a difference, and every time I do, I am reminded that it does! It is truly an exceptional product, that has become a skin care staple for me. Thank you Vasseur for making such healthy and safe products that work so well!

I started on this product & ran out, it was pricey, so I waited a while till I refilled. BIGGEST mistake ever. Once I replaced, I & everybody around me saw such a difference. I will never go with out now! Get it! SO worth it :)

I have been looking for an am moisturizer that packs in the hydration without aggravating my acne. This product does that, and actually has dramatically diminished my blemishes and sped up their healing! I have been using ALA with azelaic acid for 1 yr plus now...the longest this product junkie has ever stayed loyal to one thing.

I started using this product about two months ago. After a month into my regime, I looked in the mirror one morning and was amazed at how great my skin was looking. I had cystic acne in my teens/20's that left a few craters and ice pick scars across my cheeks. It is now looking very smooth and redness has been greatly reduced.

So I had stopped using AlA for about a month or so, just forgot and got lazy. Then I was looking at my skin in the mirror and my pores seem big, like moon craters. Then I started back using ALA, and within a week I noticed the difference. My skin is much smoother and pores refined. I will never stop using it again. I thought I would share this. Just love ALA.
