I had a terrible breakout two years ago, a volcano blast all over my entire face. I used this pad twice a day and it helped tremendously within a month. However, it's way to harsh for me now. The cotton pad is pretty rough as well. Good stuff overall.
A timeless classic. The only thing I use before sleep in winter. It's moisturizing enough for winter in New England and that says a lot haha. It's the best out there for strengthening skin barrier and therefore gives your skin the power to shield off environmental damages. The VA (a tiny amount) helps even out skin tone. It's gentle enough even when I have rashes - actually my demonologist recommended it!
HEAVILY artificial colored and fragranced!!! Sits on the skin forever and never get absorbed. I put it on before sleep and woke up to tainted blue pillow case, and those not being rubbed off by the pillow is still sitting on my skin! Worst of all it breaks me out like crazy.
My fav VC serum! Just finished the second bottle this morning. It's very gentle and provides just the right amount of moisture in New England for seasons other than winter. Btw I have normal to dry skin. Lightens my overall complexion and serves a great anti-oxidant under suncream.
I love this thing so much I'm on the third bottle! It's very gentle and I have hyper sensitive skin so it says a lot. Does wonders to those little bumps that can only be seen under the sun (they drive me crazy)!
The color is a bit too dark for my fair skin tone, but I think the tint just gives a nice glow for summer. Btw the color is a bit on the orange side. The smell is nice and subtle as always. Texture might be too heavy for wet environments but it's just right for New England summer.
