This product goes on very smoothly and is a little on the thick side which makes it easier to apply a nice layer. You do need to wash it off with warm water because the warmth helps remove the product from your skin. It does leave a "layer" behind, which some people have complained about because they the feel like it's heavy. However, for me, it didn't feel like there was a "layer" I actually didn't feel it on my skin after I washed it off. It makes my skin look luminous and bright but nothing too dramatic. It just makes my skin look healthy but it does wear off throughout the day however.
