This product does it job, but I wouldn't say it's anything spectacular. I apply some onto a cotton pad and swipe it across my face, and while it does make my skin feel more refreshed afterwards, I didn't experience any significant difference. Plus, one big issue I have with a lot of Shu Uemura products is the fragrance. I really wish they would tone down the scent of their products because it can be quite overwhelming sometimes, and I say this as someone that isn't sensitive to strong scents. All in all, an OK product.
