ALL OPINIONS ARE MINE ALONE. #DOR24KMAGIC #BRANDBACKER It seems natural to have high expectations for a product with a high price tag, so needless to say, my hopes were through the roof after accepting an offer from D’or 24K to test their Non-Surgical Lifting Innovation Syringe! At $700 for 0.5 oz. this is something one hopes to see immediate results from using — and good heavens is that what I got!
