Nice, but...

I've used this product about 6 times now over about 3 weeks just while I get used to it. I know it's meant for daily use, but so far I'm not noticing any difference in my skin. Also, I find it really difficult to get the product out of the packaging. The lid is hard to remove and the bottle requires more effort than I would expect to get the product out (it's more viscous than I anticipated) and might do better in a small pump bottle or squeezy tube.

I'll keep working my way up to daily use and hopefully I can notice some changes in my skin.

Really like it!

I was apprehensive due to my sensitive skin, but it works very well for me. I'm happy to continue using it and see long term results.
