I really wanted to like this product because it's easily accessible and relatively affordable, but I just can't get it to work for me in the way I'd like. It seems to be making my mild to moderate acne worse without even effectively moisturizing my skin.
-Pump is very hygenic even if you lose or break the cap to the product.
-No chemical-y stench or overpowering fragrance. The product does have a light smell, but it's very pleasant and absolutely tolerable unless you're highly sensitive to smell.
-Contains lots of natural ingredients (red tea, shea butter, aloe, etc.).
-Did help keep my makeup looking nice for the entirety of the day with minimal blotting, which made me happy. My skin is wacky, so a lot of moisturizers can't do that.
-Made my makeup look excellent when I had to apply it twice in a day. This is also very, very rare for me.
-Didn't leave me greasy in the morning when applied at night.
-Caused additional breakouts on my forehead and cheek area. My chin and upper lip area are my main problem zones for acne, so any time a product causes additional breakouts in other areas I generally toss it.
-DOES NOT ABSORB INTO YOUR FACE AT ALL unless you rub it between your fingers vigorously, and then rub it into your face vigorously.
-Somehow gave me itchy, red, dry patches on my face. My chin has always been oily, so imagine my shock and disgust when a nickel sized patch of dry, scaly skin appeared just under my bottom lip and refused to go away soon after I started using this product. I now also have two similarly irritated patches of skin in the lower cheek area under each nostril. NOT ACCEPTABLE.
-Made me look even more tired than I already look when applied sparingly under the eyes. This is probably my fault for trying, since it isn't marketed as an eye cream.
I really wanted this product to work because it seems to play nicely with my makeup, won't break the bank, and doesn't require a 35+ minute drive to the nearest major city to purchase. But, bottom line: I just can't stick with a product that causes my acne to worsen and/or creates additional problems. I'm keeping it around just in case, but I definitely will not be repurchasing.
