I have to admit I was skeptical about purchasing this astringent, but I have not been disappointed and love the results to my face. No more bumps and tighter pores and I have noticed the couple of dark spots I have are lightening. I don't use the astringent every night, but alternate with a moisturizer because the astringent works so well I don't want to over do. it. I would recommend this astringent to anyone who wants better skin on their face.
