This works SO well. I had the original tumeric stick but didn't like the fact that it would rub onto my pillow / clothes etc. I would 10/10 recommend the new tumeric tonic, its done WONDERS for the dark marks from acne on my chin and cheeks. I typically pick at pimples which leaves scarring, and after consistent and continual use my dark spots are almost completely gone! On my 2nd tube already! Thank you Cocokind for such quality (and reasonably priced) products!
