    I love how my skin feels after using this product . I am happy with my purchase 💗

    It is gentle on my skin and I like the fact that you mix it with your own cleanser

    I really like this product.
    I followed the advice from the review left by Mildred Nakkungu and she made some very good points that really helped with the usage of the product.

    My skin feels amazing when I use it and it’s a great way to turn 2 steps of my routine into 1.
    I use the product with the Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser and it works amazingly. When deciding how much to use you just kinda need to wing it.

    Honestly, if you’re on the fence about it, I really suggest trying it out at least once because it was a game-changer for me. I use it every second day in the evening and it lasts me a lot longer than a liquid toner.

    One thing I don’t like is the smell but I think that’s just what you get when the product isn’t diluted or fragranced.

    This was one of 3 products that I bought for the first time from skin functional

    Pros: My skin has never been this smooth. Also this product quickly dries out acne.

    Cons: Because of the packaging it is not clear how much can be used per use. It can be quite drying (I have combination skin) and I had to take a break from it a couple of times. I made the mistake of keeping this product in my bathroom, and because of the kaolin in the product it began to clump together, which made it difficult to handle.

    Overall I am still happy with the purchase, but I would recommend not using this in conjunction with actives you are using for the first time, introduce each product one at a time.
