To cut it short, I work in a kitchen. Smoke, grease, oil, dirt, whatever factor that can constitute the worse environment for skin you can imagine. And my skin flares up endlessly. Trying to predict a good skin day is nearly as hard as winning the lottery. Back to product; have been using it nearly everyday for just over a week. Skin looks clearer, healthy and blemishes starting to clear. No breakouts since! Slap makeup on top and it glides on easily. No horrid smell. Nice easy absorb, non sticky texture. Does not dry out skin. I do not use extra moisturiser on top. Great product!
