I purchased this in the hope that it would keep my skin youthful looking, but I'm not sure that it lives up to its claims. It doesn't absorb into my skin, just kind of sits on top of my skin in a thin layer. It is much greasier than I was led to believe by other reviews, and it has an odd scent. It doesn't smell bad, but it's not as clean smelling as I would like. I also feel like my pores are more clogged than they should be. Overall, not pleased with this particular purchase...but you live and learn, I guess.
