combination PIHAcne
I love this SO much!

Already after the first use i noticed my skin being smoother! I have a lot of acne scars so this product is great for making them fade away faster. I only use the peel once a week, and always in the evening, because it can cause pigmentation damage when you go in the sun too soon after using the peel. It can sting a bit, but it is not that bad, just remember to not wear it for longer than ten minutes, and get all the residue off. My skin is a bit red and sensitive directly after use, but in the morning it is perfect! I really recommend this product, but be careful if you have very sensitive skin, and always patch test first!

combination PIHAcneBlackheads+ 3
reduce my PIH

This product is the first chemical exfoliator product I use. This product helps me to cope with the pore clogged pores due to blackheads. In addition, this product also helps to disguise my blackened acne scars. This product also provides instant enlightening effect after first use. But the need to note in the use of this product is not to use the product more than once a week, and use no more than 10 minutes and use this product only at night. This product I recommend for the skin that has undergone a peeling procedure at a beauty clinic under the supervision of a dermatologist. For skin that has never exfoliated with chemicals I do not recommend this product, it is better to use products with a lower AHA content because AHA with high doses can cause irritation.

oily PIHAcneFungal+ 2
Causes breakout to my whole face

I started using this to solve my forehead fungal acne. I have like one or two acne at this point of time and its normal for me to have this. I feel happy when started using it because I feel like my skin is getting tighter and my fungal acne seems like reducing. But after 2 weeks of using it (applied twice in a week following the instruction), I notice that I started to get breakout here and there in my face. Thinking that it is purging stage, I keep on using it. After a months, the breakout still does not stop and getting worst. I stopped using it after a friend of mine advised me to do so. The breakout is still there after a week or two after stopping using it, but they are better than while using the mask. Only after I see a dermatologist, my breakout stopped completely. Now I have a lot of PIH in my whole face due to the breakout. If you have sensitive skin, please don't use this mask as it can mess with your skin barrier.
