My face looks plump and hydrated. It absorbs quickly into my skin, unlike my usual moisturizer. I bought pure kosher vegetable glycerin (1 quart for $11). This will last me forever because I mix it in a 1:10 ratio whenever I use it. If you don't dilute the glycerin with enough water, your face will get sticky. Using pure glycerin on your face is NOT recommended because it can dry out your skin. I use a 1:10 (glycerin: water) mixture for my face and hair. I mix it up in a spray bottle so application is super easy. I've been acne-free for over a year since I've gotten on Dan's regimen and I only switched out my Cetaphil moisturizing lotion to try glycerin and water in the past week. It works just as well as Cetaphil with an added bonus: my face is much less oily when I wake up in the morning. You'll have to play around with the concentration because it depends how dry your skin/air is.
