This exfoliant is great! You only need a tiny drop on a cotton pad, it can leave your skin feeling a little sticky if you use too much. Wipe it over your face, let it dry and then apply moisturiser. I use it before bed 2-3x per week and it really helps reduce rosacea, enlarged pores, blackheads and control oil production. I have oily/combination skin and it has significantly reduced my spots! Its not tested on animals and lasts ages.
