My esthetician recommended this for my very sensitive skin. It is gel like and absorbs quickly yet your skin feels sealed with moisture. It does make my pimples heal without a scab as they usually do. It brightens my overall complexion too.
It’s a must try.
I like it so far! It’s lightweight but moisturizing enough for my dry skin. I use this every night and it has also helped clear my acne. Been using it for about 2 months.
