It is a wonderful product and I can see that my skin has improved by using it. However, it is not suitable to use in the day if you want to wear makeup since the oil forms a barrier on your skin (I assume this is the UV protection layer) that does not allow the makeup to stay on your skin for very long. I now use it at night, and my skin loves it. I even use it around my eyes with no issues.
