Not at all, it absorbs right into the skin.
I experience it completely differently from the Neuropeptide FirmX. It's more like Philosophy's Miracle Worker cream, but a much less dense consistency. With both this Turbo serum and the Miracle Worker cream, if put on thickly, it does feel tacky. But, this Turbo serum spreads so well, like water would, although it is far denser than water, that only a tiny bit is needed. I do feel it a bit on the skin, although not at all tacky and sticky. So, I do "feel" something on my skin when I touch it, but, for me anyway, it feels more like the Philosophy product than the Neuropeptide FirmX.
