I love the Snail Bee line, but the High Content Skin is the best. I have had issues with breakouts for the longest time and this product has really helped calm them down. I have used it by patting it on with my hands and by applying it with cotton and feel the cotton application does a great job of getting just the right amount of product on my face. This product does not really have a smell and absorbs well into the skin prepping it for the next steps. Overall, this is a fantastic product that helps clear up troubled skin.
