I have a couple dry patches on my face, that bother me like crazy. No matter how much lotion I put on, or how many facials I give myself with a series of cleansers and masks, these dry spots were always there! I decided to try this stuff on a whim, expecting the exact same results I always get. I was very pleasantly surprised! I washed my face with a light exfoliant, and then applied this stuff exactly the way the directions said. Dry patches.... GONE! I use it about once a week, and my face has not looked this good in years!
