Give it time
I bought this alongside the face wash. I have been a huhge fan of the SPF so decided to try more products from BOS. At first, I did not see the glow or feel hydrated. I also broke out in very few pimples, but persisted day/night using the wash and cream. By day 4 my skin cleared up and I had a glow all day! Now, my face is always soft and dewy. So my axvice is to give it time + persistence. .
