This stuff is the best facial invention of all time. Before bed, I wash and dry my face. I wait a few minutes for my face to settle and then I rub this on my face in excess. I wait for it to soak in (so my face isn't wet, but moist) before I hit the sheets. When I wake up in the morning, my pores are hardly visible, my blemishes have reduced by half their size, and the bags under my eyes are even less noticeable. I will use this product forever. Thank you, BirchBox, for introducing me to this brand!
