    Hi, I have acne skin and undergoing facial treatment… I already purchase the ph morning gel cleanser and looking for good cleanser that can be use at night… And also my acne already reduced due to facial treatments but the spots are still there and my face is dull as well, so I’m also looking for something that can treat my skin overnight… Wic means any cream to be use before sleep… And regarding the mask, how often can we use it? Can use every night before go to bed?
