"I was getting a deep marionette line at the right side of my mouth, also a line on my chin in the oddest place. I swear they are gone overnight. Yes, it is sticky....I use it in this order and it helps. (1) firming pads(2) contour serum (3) hydrating serum (4) facial firming corrector, and then (5) night cream. I wait for them to sink in or dry before I apply the next layer. Most of her products I find a bit sticky. But, she's the bomb! A small problem for such big results. I really like this serum.
