I bought this product through my Avon lady about 3 years ago. I used it religiously and followed the directions to a T. Within 5 days my skin was more dry then when I started and I broke out in red blotches. But it would probably work very differentially on someone else. Absorption When applied it does absorb really quickly. But thats when I noticed my skin burn a little. But I just chalked it up to being a new product. And it does feel nice and creamy going on, and the smell is pleasent. Doesn't Clog Pores After 2-3 days I noticed right away that my pores were very clog and noticeable. Effectiveness I only gave it a 2 because of my experience with red blotches and itching. Although it would probably work differently on someone else.
