I am very careful in leaving comments of reviews, as I just find it time consuming or a product is never worthy of it. Also, I tried many products in the past but they have just made my skin worse and because of that reason it made me worried and skeptical about trying this product (but I’m glad I did try). This product will change that. I realized that this product is great especially when used correctly. It is effective yet gentle, doesn't dry my skin out. Remember that everyone’s skin is different. Sometimes what works for doesn’t work for you.
If you are dealing with oily/ acne prone skin this product will save your skin. You just need to apply this overnight and by the morning it’s dried up and ready to go. It can also be tried to be used as a make up base smoother to look more glowy even when you have no makeup on. Result is as quickly as 3 days to notice the difference. You’ll see that the spots have reduced, pores seem smaller and the skin is more radiant without being shiny. you have to use this product religiously and leave it on to see good results.
Some users are terribly unlucky and don't recommend the product. They complain about it leaving their skin with a burning sensation. Or after a few days of use, they are developing a major rash and noticing that since they started using it, their skin became more sensitive and prone to rashes and breakouts in general. They also say that it leaves a really annoying film on their skin. This reason leaves them unsure if they will continue the usage because the benefits aren’t outweighing the negatives.
As for me, I believe that some user’s problem is using way too much product which ends up damaging their skin. I suggest using less because less is more. I only use a 2 or 3 drops max of once or maybe twice a day application in the face. It should not be just poured on. The gel is definitely oilier, I agree, but if you use only a little as intended followed by moisturize it’s fine. My only complaint is that since the bottle is not clear, you can't really see how low you are running on the product.
If you are hesitating to get this, take the leap. It’ll be worth it.
