This depends how often you are using it. If you are using it every few nights in place of your usual moisturizer, be generous and go with a nice quarter size amount. If you are using it more often, I would suggest using less and mixing it with moisturizer so you aren't overdoing it.

Thanks Dan! I just recieved my package yesterday so last night was my first time using it. I've used it the past 2 nights as a replacement to my moisturizer. I've been on the regimen for the past 3 months and it has helped but hasn't completely cleared me up yet. I'll keep using it at night only and see where that gets me. Thanks again. :)

Sure thing. You might want to take the Regimen Quiz just to be sure you're on track with everything. I want you completely clear soon!
