Unfortunately, I found this essence to be too sticky and fragranced for my skin. It has a lot of good ingredients, and if your skin is dry and/or you're looking for a hydrating essence, it may work for you. But in the warming weather, it's just too sticky and sits on top of my skin. Plus it has a stronger fragrance than I expected; not bad, sort of like tea and flowers, but I've gotten used to unscented starting essences.
I never thought that I could need a product like this before, but now I surely do! It makes a big difference in my morning and night routine and had helped me a lot with my oily skin!
