Excelent

This product is very aggressive on skin so it should be used lightly and in small doses. It is doing wonders in my skin and I truly recommend it to anyone who wishes to get rid of acne scars and clean pores on the inside.
Apart from this don't overuse it (10min 2 times a week is already enough), use sunscreen everyday and don't get it in your eyes/mouth!

Surprisingly gentle for my sensitive skin

I know this peeling solution shouldn't be used on sensitive skin, but I just couldn't resist not trying it. I was afraid it would "burn" my rosacea skin, but my skin seems to tolerate this.
I've used this twice already with absolutely no side effects. However, it is worth noting that I apply a thin layer because that's all it takes. I've seen some people using an exaggerated amount and can imagine that's not okay for just any skin type.
I do feel a slight tingling sensation, but it is sooo mild. I can leave it on for 10 minutes with no issue whatsoever. I have also never experienced redness after using it. After using it, I apply the Bioderma Cicabio cream for damaged skin.
As for results, they are not visibile right away, but I do see a significant improvement in the texture of my skin in the morning. Really happy with this peeling solution!

Carefully

I love this product, but it takes a lot for me to be patient with using it :D For example when I have an open scratch you really shouldn't put it on, but I crave it sometimes. It really helps me with fading the acne scars and all the skin brightening. Also be sure to use something for hydration after, because it makes my skin really dry.
