Its budget friendly and I received it as a free gift from MyUniverse. Just started using it. Will update more about this product in future. Noticing fading of long term dark spots. Its dry but use it as per your own knowledge for skincare routine. You can add rose water or a bit of oil free high quality non coagulant moisturizer for oily skin. I wouldn't recommend for acne prone skin and dry skin beauties use it with your own high quality non coagulant moisturizer.
