Works well but sticky

I truly do love this product, I’ve been using it for quite a while now however I have noticed that when you put the powder it and then apply it onto your face it’s a bit sticky. Apart from that the product does it job very well and has started to fade my acne and post hyperpigmentation.

Interesting product

This is a really interesting product, I have never used a powder formula “serum” before. I add this to my hyaluronic toner and mix it in my hands. It does dissolve quite easily into the toner and is absorbed nicely into the skin. You do get the slight standard tingle of a vit c which is normal

Best Use: Hydrating, Reduce Dullness

Good product

I was a little unsure at first, however did take some getting use to. Basically it was a little bit of trial and error. I found it to react at first but then having spoken to staff in store and also reading reviews I was using / mixing too much. Only use just under half a spoon and it is lovely mixed in to moisturiser.

I absolutely love this powder - I also have the niacimide powder and It is absolutely brilliant to mix with existing products, if you are anything like me and enjoy trying new serums a lot and then experience hyperpigmentation this is a god send and such a money saver not to mention how reasonable the price is for this powder
