How to use
Use after cleansing skin, before moisturizing. Can be washed off or left on. Has an earthy, green scent. o sprays is enough! You can let skin absorb in the goodies, or gently blot off with a tissue (or whatever you like.) Reapply throughout the day, as required.
Apply your favourite facial oil afterwards (which is probably our City or Midnight!)) while skin is still damp for best results.
