I got a very generous sample as a 100-point VIB bonus, & there is NO "reservoir". If you turn the bottle upside down, then right side up, then open it, there will be no powder at all in the cap. After reading some of the answers to the question about how to dispense the product, I tried turning the bottle upside down & opening it while it was in that position. Big mistake! Powder all over the place. Fortunately, I had put a piece of clean printer paper under the bottle, so I was able to save almost of all of what I spilled. Don't know if the full size has some kind of reservoir, but the sample definitely did not. Having said that - the best way to use this very fine powder is (1) cleanse face with your usual cleanser, but do not dry your face completely (leave skin fairly damp); (2) dry your hands thoroughly; (3) with the bottle right side up, open it & tap a small amount (the size of a large pea works for me) into your hand & then (4) either add a drop or 2 of water to the powder in your hand, work into a light paste & then massage onto your face OR just apply the powder from your hand directly onto damp skin & then massage. All this sounds like more hassle than it really is - the whole process just takes a couple of minutes - & the product does leave skin soft & smooth without irritation. Plus the 100-point sample is incredibly generous - a little of this product goes a very long way.

A lot of people, including myself, use significantly less than what is pre-measured. All you have to do is put the amount that is right for you into the palm of your hand, and follow the instructions on how to use this product.

When you turn the bottle over it dispenses the fine powder into the cap. I use the product in the shower, drop a few droplets of water into the pwder mix and you are ready.
A couple of tries will help you decide what works for you. A pea sized amount works for me. Add a bit more if that's not enough to spread over your entire face. It doesn't need an exact scientific measurement to work.
you turn the bottle upside down and it releases the amount into the cap, unscrew it while it's still upside down but for some reason it won't pour out of the bottle, then tilt the bottle back over and pour what is in the cap into your hand, it's the perfect amount every time!

I can't fully explain the system, but if you tip the bottle over with its cap on, the bottle automatically pours out only a small amount in to the cap. You take off the cap (with the bottle upside down) and pour whats in the cap into your hand. Nothing extra escapes the bottle when its open and upside down. And the little that is in the cap is plenty. A little goes a long way.

After removing the lid you simply turn the container upside down and a pre measured amount is placed into your hand. The amount that comes out does seem like much, however, once you add a few drops of water you have more than enough.
