Strangely, it feels hydrating. No excessive facial dryness.
Purging period has been very tolerable.
This 60g tube will last MONTHS Cost ($500+/60g tube) without insurance. I know that I'm a bit early into this regimen to give it a completely review. I plan to update as I go along. However, I wanted to mention to those that are scared to death of the "purging" period... it seems to effect each person differently. I wasn't even sure if I was experiencing the purge. My acne had cleared up a lot (after a massive breakout) before I went to the derm. So when I experienced the "purge," it was no worse than my typical acne before it started clearing. Things heal up pretty quickly. Microdermabrasion and my regimen seem to work really well. I have very oily skin, so this product has never made my face appear dry or flaking. In the morning, I do feel a bit of tightness that resolves after my shower and moisturizer. Nothing dramatic like I feared. The reason I'm posting this (just under a month of starting) is because I wanted others to not be scared off by all reviews. I read some and was petrified to start Ziana. If it wasn't for the hassle of paying for the derm, getting insurance and promotional cards to cover the cost, and the 10+ years it took to finally see the derm... I might have skipped it. Jump in. It's not so bad.
