I tried this product several times, its a very strange product. I think i get what this product is intended for but its just not a product that would fit into my routine. Its the consistency of a hair serum. Its an oil that has sheen to it. If you can use this product without make up, I think you would get the desired effect that this product was intended for. It has illuminating and light reflective qualities. Under makeup, this effect is lost and just greasy. I do not have acne anymore but in my younger days, this would have broke my face out. I almost didn't try it at all.
