This is light, it doesn’t even feel like you use a treatment. It’s more of like a watery moisturizer. It doesn’t dry up the skin, it absorb into the skin. So it doesn’t feel like you are using a pimple cream. In term of effectiveness, I guess it is alright. If you have heavy breakage, this will not help. A tiny spot here and there, it sort of did. But then again, without the cream, it will just disappear on its own. But maybe it does help, but you just can’t really see it. I’m not sure. I just use it and hope. That’s the thing with serum isn’t it, you use it hoping it will pay off.
