V&M CPC + G Oil Review
This oil seems to have a lot of fans. And I’m going against the current here, because I used this to try and lighten my blemishes, but I felt like it didn’t do anything on a span of two to four weeks. I stopped.

Packaging-wise, I hate the pump. Even though there’s a plastic cap on, I find that the oil kept spilling all over my vanity table and makeup bag when I traveled. I also find that it didn’t dispense liquid equally nor efficiently. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, such a hassle. What I do like about it is that the bottle is clear and I can immediately see how much product I’ve used up.

I found the four ingredients in this oil intriguing because with all the acids and extracts inside, I thought that this would sting my skin... It didn’t. In fact, there wasn’t any stinging or burning or itching throughout the whole time I used it on my face. It just felt like the normal oil, only that it didn’t feel as sticky and it dried a lot quicker compared to other brands.

And since it didn’t have any effect on my blemishes, I thought I’d use it for my elbows. Et voila, I finally saw something happening. Over the course of a month, I really did see an improvement on my elbows. It looked a little lighter, although not something miraculous, and as for the texture, my elbows didn’t feel as rough compared to how it was before. Not really a huge improvement, but it was still something to note. It’s a little smoother and softer now.

Using this CPC + G Oil alone, there weren’t any huge magical moments over the course of two months. I used this religiously everyday on my elbows for a month, and yes, there was an improvement, but it wasn’t something that’s really noticeable for all the time I spent applying and waiting for it to dry. I’m not sure if I needed to use another product together with this oil, but I wasn’t wow-ed by it. 

I don’t know... a lot of people seem to swear by it, so it must surely work wonders on them.
