It is clear, a bit thick, no scent, easily absorbed.
In first week, I use it only once a week, the next week is twice, and then every two days, a half of dropper. The skincare I use: calming ampoule + Cos De Baha Retinol Serum + moisturizer, and sunscreen in the morning.
Quickly absorbs without sticky feeling. First of use there is a little itchy, then after getting used to it, it isn't itchy anymore.
After using it, the skin feels moist but I always continue it with moisturizer because the skin will become dry.
There is lighting difference on picture above. As you can see, there is progress on my skin. Within 4 weeks of use, fine lines are starting to fade and less acne.
