Overall, I give this product a 10. The characteristics I like best about this cream is that it does not have a "heavy" feel to it, is not overly fragranced, and it worked wonders on my skin. My skin is typically normal during most months and it does get a little dry during winter months. I also have acne prone skin, but this product is one of few that have not caused any issues. After using it for 2-3 days, I discovered that the sunspots/freckles on my forehead were fading and nearly undetectable. The only real "complaint" I have about this product is that it does not absorb as quickly as I would like it to, but that may be due to the amount of cream I used at the time. Absorption I may just use too much at one time, but I feel like it does not absorb as quickly as I would like it to. Doesn't Clog Pores Genics has not clogged my pores. Effectiveness I am in love with how quickly this product works. Within 2-3 days the freckles/sunspots from my forehead faded and were nearly undetectable!
