How do I use it?
I apply 1-1.5 pumps of product on my face after my toner and essence in the evening routine. It sinks in instantly and it doesn’t cause any problems with the other layers of my routine. I haven’t noticed any orange stains, it seems to blend in seamlessly into my skin.
Effect of Survival 0
It’s difficult to tell if it has any visible effects. I see it more as an investment that will show in the future, if I can prevent as much damage as possible now. Since using this I did notice though, that my cheek area, which gets irritated and red sometimes, seems to be doing fine.
Do I recommend Survival 0?
Yes, I do! I think it’s a great product for any skin type and concern, since it’s catering to key factors of healthy skin. Any skin needs a healthy barrier to function normally.
