I first tried this in a small size over 10 years ago . If there are 2 products of Dr. Denese' that I cannot live without , it is this & the Daily Defense Cream in a jar. This has a lightweight feel , similar to mousse with tiny little microdermabrasion pearls slipped inside that do not scrape & tear your skin like some can . it leaves your face clean yet silky soft & has a slight hint of fragrance that reminds me of a fresh carnation flower. No heavy scents , I'm allergic to most , but not to Dr. Denese ! Since I'm older now , I use this in the shower & go from my face to my neck & upper chest area. Just a tiny amount is all you need. Use this more than weekly it's so gentle .
