The first time I used this product I was completely shocked by the result. My acne-prone skin, especially in the t-zone area, is quite difficult to manage because the oiliness, texture, and tone of skin is constantly changing. When you put the product on make sure your face is already wet, it works better with the thermal conditioning of this treatment. I used my fingers to rub the heated cream into my face, but I later found it to be more effective with a dry cloth. This cream leaves the face completely smooth, and visibly brighter, which shocked me of course because of my tan complexion. I absolutely love this product, however I would suggest you all not to use it as a "daily treatment" as it suggests, just because it will stop working after a while. Other than that, It's definitely an awesome and luxurious product to pamper your skin from time to time!
