Not a fan

I thought that because this serum (texture similar to a watery essence) was light that it would be perfect for a hot day when I don't want to many layers on my skin. Sadly this product made my slightly sensitive skin breakout into little pimples across my face, just as the wash off mask did. This serum contains a lot of ingredients that are not suitable for sensitive skin such as a variety of citrus extracts, glycolic and salicylic acid. My skin did not feel hydrated after using this either, which I suspect is due to the alcohol in the formula.

Overall I saw no improvements in my skin while using this and instead found my skin was worse off than before. The ingredients leave a lot to be desired and the alcohol is definitely an off putting factor.
