I had never tried a facial oil before, and was worried about what it would do to my combination skin, but I love the rms concealer, so I took the plunge and bought a bottle. That was a year ago and it was the best thing I have ever done for my face, truly truly! After about two weeks I stopped wearing primer because, well, I just didn't need it anymore. My face got brighter, redness diminished, my PORES SHRUNK (wow!), and old acne scars were starting to fade. I use Retin-A for adult acne and it used to be I would get a couple pimples if I missed even one night- now I can miss a week and not break out! I use it around my eyes at night, and all over my face and neck morning and night. I used less in the summer, and now in the winter am layering it on. I really like the smell, but I would describe it as organic smell, so I could understand why some people might be put off. Just put a few drops of lavender essential oil in it if you must, but definitely try this product!
