I've been using the product for about two months in the morning with my oil-free sunscreen. So far, I like it. My melasma has gotten a bit better (this probably also has to do with my Retin A and hydroquinone regimen in the evenings) and my skin does appear brighter. I use a full scoop with my sunscreen, but have noticed that it does change the consistency of the sunscreen. It feels like it thins it out, so I find myself wanting to apply more because it feels like I'm not covered enough. It does go on undetectable and smoothly--no white, chalk look for feel, but does leave my skin oily-looking. I may try it with my Philosophy's When Hope is Not Enough serum.
Although the jar is small (0.25oz.), a little definitely goes a long way and this small jar should last you at least six months, if not longer. I store it in my medicine cabinet which isn't close to my bathroom lights.
Due to the fact that I am using Retin A, it's hard for me to say that this product works well on its down. I have the feeling that it does. I would still recommend giving it a try because it's not another product that you have to use on its own; instead, you incorporate it in your every morning beauty regimen.
