    This product works better for me than an expensive brand. Has absolutely no oil in it and no residue left. I have combination skin and it leaves my skin completely soft and smooth. Reduced my rosacea and red spots immensely. Love it! Love it! Love it!!!

              I accidentally bought this thinking it was for sensitive skin, but I decided to give it a try. Even though the last ingredient in this is fragrance, the fragrance is super strong. It doesn't smell bad, but I felt like I smeared perfume all over my face. The texture of it is nice and silky, and it did a good job of moisturizing without making me greasy. However, my face turned red right after I used it. For an hour afterwards, my face burned. I'll have to change to a more sensitive skin friendly formula.

                I use it after cleaning my face with Simple's Oil Cleanser(which both were a new cleaning routine for my face).
                I don't have much acne but within the first 2 days my skin cleared up after having a previous breakout due to a different cleanser! My skin is smoother and seems more vibrant! I personally like the smell of it, but if you are sensitive to scents it might be too strong.

                honestly, i had to give a review on this! i received a sample of this not too long ago, tried it for about a week but lieterally in the first three days i saw a world of a difference on my skin! my shin jus definitely more towards the oily side, i have a lot of marks and breakouts all over my face, but this brought it down so much! my skin looked clearer in three days! it works great as a moisturizer too, especially with my skin, unfortunately within a weeks time i started to notice that the texture of my skin was bumpy but it wasnt too noticeable! i read the ingreidents and saw that it contained glycol, which i'm allergic to. i'm really sad that it caused an allergic reaction because it's really such a great product for the price!

                        I want to love this so badly because the smell is wonderful but it burns my entire face for hours (I put on before work & couldn't wash it off) and leaves it red and puffy.

                            A:

                            For best results fading dark spots and uneven skintone using products both AM and PM and a sunscreen are needed. For AM we recommend applying the Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Corrector to clean skin. Follow after 15 minutes with either makeup that has an SPF or the Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15. For PM use the same Clearly Brighter Dark Spot Overnight Leave On Peel.
                            The Dark Spot Corrector and Dark Spot Peel are essential to fading the discoloration and dark spots, however an sunscreen must also be used daily to prevent new dark discolorations from forming.
