I’ve just discovered Korean skincare thanks to my sister who insisted that I try a 5 step regimen which included this serum. I learned the importance of application techniques. Ex: Pat, pat, pat it into your skin instead of smearing it on and being sure to take the time to let it soak in before applying the next product. I use 1 large drop on my face, concentrating only on the driest areas and then follow up with a cream. The serum absorbs into my skin after a few minutes. It has an aloe-like texture, is not oily at all, and has the same light, refreshingly pleasant botanical scent as the cream. In combination with other K skincare products (beauty water, treatment essence, moisturizer), my skin has never looked better. My only regret is that I didn’t start using this line sooner. Highly recommended!
