My Opinion:
I've read some reviews claiming that this product would leave your face fresh and clear in the morning, in the long run it'll reduce pores.
I've been using this for half a month, and I've notice that my face is oilier than usual when I wake up in the morning, but it didn't cause any break outs.
I didn't find anything special with this product and I don't think I'll be buying it again....
