The package says that this product can be used both morning as well as evening and is applied to skin prior to moisturizing.
The serum has no real smell and comes out in a translucent gel. Because of the inclusion of Dimethicone this product does have a blurring effect. We would suggest using this after other serums as it’s a little heavier than most serums that we use but definitely before moisturizing.
After using this for a few weeks we can attest to this product’s effects on the skin. We noticed immediately that our skin appeared more radiant and within the first week of using we noticed that our skin did look clearer and more bright. We were a bit worried about the potency of the Salicylic Acid but found that it wasn’t too strong and did not irritate our skin. So we’d say that this product is good for all skin types.
