Good product with a lot of benefits

Pycnogenol feels like on oil, but it absorbs rather fast so it doesn't leave a greasy feel on the skin. It gives the skin a slight glow, but not in a greasy way. However it pills horribly in combination with other products. I always have to wait until the last product settles in completely before using this, and then waiting some for this to settle before moving onto the next product. It's also quite hard to apply to your entire face as it instantly sinks into your skin when applying. I usually apply 3 drops to my face and then spread it evenly by tapping it around with my fingers.

However it's all worth it to me consider all pycnogenol's benefits. It's a known antioxidant, as well as being anti-flammatory & anti-aging ingredient and it also helps wound healing. It increases the effectiveness of the use of vitamin-c products and sunscreen, so it's perfect to use in combination with vitamin-c serums.

The way it pills with other products it really the only reason it doesn't get 5 stars for me, other than that I love this product!
