I'm so sad this didn't work out for me, as the ingredients seemed really good and noncomedogenic. Unfortunately it seemed to cause some sort of reaction, my skin felt tingly, greasy, and clogged. I had quite a few new breakouts from this, but I'm not sure what I reacted to. It’s possible that I reacted to all the different extracts. Serums are also on the heavier side in general, so they may just not be for me because my skin is so clog prone.
