When I first began to use this product I was dismayed at how it beaded up on my skin and banished it to the closet for a while. After a few months I pulled it back out and began to use again. I’ve noticed that with regular use the beading diminishes. When I awake some mornings my skin sometimes feels a bit tight.This isn’t the best item in the line, but I think it does work its purpose. It feels very soothing when it goes on and it has more toning and refining properties than the day crème. I continue to use it along with the entire line and overall my skin has improved.
