When I first started using this product, I didn't like it because I thought it was too thick for my oily skin, and just a few hours after applying it my face was so oily I had to wash it! After playing with how much I was using, I've come to realize that a little of this product goes a LONG way. About a dime sized amount is enough to cover my entire face & neck. It smells a little off-putting, but not so much that it bothers me any. Love this stuff, and with how little you need to use for each application, the jar will last a good long while!
