I honestly had to get used to the smell (it's a little medicinal, but I guess that's a good thing), but once I got over that, it wowed me. It spreads on pretty thin and doesn't make my face oily at all. I began to use it every night before bed and it has worked wonders for my skin. My skin is clearer, and I didn't break out from using this because this is designed to make skin less sensitive and "build up its defenses." I make sure I only use a little bit so this could last me for a long time.
