Brief Answer:
This is not an approved medication!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I understand your interest to try this new product. However, it is not approved by the drug regulatory bodies and I cannot therefore guarantee the safety of this drug. It can be applied just anywhere on the body but preferentially on the chest and inner thighs.

What condition do you have on your face? I will suggest you send an image to me for review and recommendations. I really would not like to see you using non approved medications that safety cannot be guaranteed. I might be able to recommend safe and approved medications from our basket.

I hope to hear from you. If you are really decided on using this product, sure you can use on the face but, I cannot guarantee that it is a good drug for you.

hope this helps. I wish you well. Thanks so much for using our services and feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
