【Feelings after using】

It’s like oil, but smooth and is blended well soon for skin

I was bothered by acne and acne scars on my chin, so I applied those area about 2.3 drops after toner.

As feeling of use, it is easy to be blended to skin like smooth oil.
And it is effective for acne and acne scars. If you applied to pimples, it would be smaller the next day.
 Thanks to the Melano CC, I could prevent my chin acne that is growing quickly from becoming huge!

Acne calmed down and redness decreased.

I also felt that acne scars were getting thinner in about a week after I continued to apply every day.
 Although it is named “Intensive Anti Spot Essence”, there some opinions that it is not effective against spots.
 I always use it as a medicine for acne.

In addition, I applied only to the point where acne exist, but people with dry skin said that when they applied to the entire face, the skin would become plump and firm, and the pores would be smaller.
 It can be recommended for people who are bothered by acne and dry and rough.

Smell is a refreshing citrus scent and does not smell harsh, so I think that even those who are sensitive to odors can use it without worrying so much.

The texture is like smooth oil and is easy to adjust to the skin.

It contains a moisturizing ingredient, so the skin will not dry even after being applied it, and keep skin moisturized.

Size is as fits in the palm of your hand, it’s easy to take it on a trip:)

You can use it for 5 to 6 months by using 2.3 drops a day.
