I've sensitive and oily(possibly dehydrated) skin. I also live in Singapore which has very high humidity.

At the time I bought this(last year, I think), my skin was badly damaged and yes, my skin is in a better state now.

I bought this with the intention of healing my skin barrier, just even by a little.

It promises to deliver, I dunno, superb moisturising that's really light-weight. and it claims to be full of antioxidants However, this did nothing except to make my face oilier. Also, for all the claims that Prickly cactus offers lots of Vit E, I saw better results with many other products that also contained Vitamin E. My skin just improved by less than 5% and I was still stuck with oily, flaking skin and so on.

I used 1 to 2 drops which would make my face oily and if I tried to use more, it made my face even oilier. and gave me a lot of pimples

Also, the dropper really sucks! A lot of product really gets stuck in there and no matter how you squeeze it, the product doesn't come out.

I wouldn't advise getting this. There're many other products that offer excellent wound-healing or if not, far better benefits. For example: Missha FTE or even any decent snail products and so on.
