RCW, how much DMAE do i need to use each time? just enough to fit into the bowl of the black spatula that was included with the order?

Yeah, that's about right. I don't use a lot, just enough to barely cover the areas I'm treating...face and neck. I just take a little blob, dot it all over my face and neck and then spread it around quickly before it dries. I make sure I get my eyes completely covered, right up to the lashline, and my lips too. WOW...it does some incredible firming and lifting for my lips.

It's REALLY drying though...even on my oily skin. Emu oil is a must at night for me these days.
