It doesn't have a strong smell and has a semi-thick consistency. My skin feels comfortable every time after applying. It is not oily nor sticky. Just one little advice, pat it down instead of rubbing it in.
That way you will not get the white residue. Patting it in also helps with absorption.
Use in the AM and PM. Apply a small dot directly on spots for visible improvement or apply a small amount over the face to maintain visible clarity with continued use. Avoid the eye contour and contact with eyes.
Do not rinse off. Continue with additional skin treatments as needed. If persistent irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult a physician.
