I really wanted to like this product!!!

However, it seems like my skin is not very agreeable with Centella. A shame, since it's supposed to be soothing, but when I apply this product, I feel a slight tingling that does go away and at least, doesn't enhance any redness or irritation. However, I have not seen much results from using this.
