I've been using skin oils for a very long time. They all had their benefits, but this one, the HILDEGARD BRAUKMANN Carotine Oil, has been the best so far. It smells better that the other carotene oil I had before and it gives my skin a summer glow. I think it also minimizes my pores. The last days I only wore this facial oil and some concealer during the day and I'm very convinced about this product.
