I have incredibly dry skin for a 45-year old 1st time mom nursing and running after a 1 year old. The first time I used this, it was incredible! My skin looked like I had just gone to the spa for 4 hour treatment, so soft, supple, lines minimized and dry patches done! I thought I was in love... alas, it was to be a 1-night stand.
If I apply a Q-tip size everyday to a fresh face, I will breakout due to clogged pores and the greasiness intensifies with use. I'm not sure if it is a defect in the product tube, that maybe the oils get weighted down to the bottom so only the top amount is properly blended, or if it is a sign that the product is working and that my skin is not dehydrated that I no longer need to use a "Miracle" product, or if it the product itself, as other reviewers have mentioned.
The worst feeling is forgetting to wash my face before bed and waking up with the oil slick on my face that I rub my hand over my cheeks and nose and my hand is all slick... and not too sweet, kind of an unpleasant smell the following day. Definitely keeps me honest about washing my face at night after putting the little one down.
Final verdict, I'll keep it in my emergency beauty bag, but out of my vanity cabinet.
