Potent but effective!
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Post Inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), Dehydrated Skin, Uneven Skin Tone

I was super nervous to try this at first because everyone said it was so intense! If you're not careful and leave it on too long, you can give yourself a serious chemical burn. Might be better for those who are a little more used to acids, but it is effective!

When I use this, I always gets a tingly feeling that gets better as time goes on. I usually have it on my face for 8-10 minutes and then I rinse it off. The rinsing part tends to amp up the tingly feeling a little but goes away once it's all washed off. The end result is super smooth skin that makes you want to use it every night! But don't overdo it- I just use this once a week for smoothing and exfoliation.

I follow it up with extra layers of hydrating toner and use a healthy amount of moisturizer. I also am sure to skip any other serums or toners that aren't focused on hydration since this stuff is so potent.

At home facial
Skin Type: normal Skin
Skin Concerns: None

So it's not like this is a complete facial, but this feels similar to the enzyme peel my esthetician uses--not sure what brand. I made a very thin mask, 3 or 4 drops for the whole face. The tingly pain got intense! Halfway through it was better & I waited the whole 10 minutes before washing it off with lukewarm water.

The result is very smooth skin, like a mini facial. I used a Weleda cream mixed with a dab of Aloe Vera afterwards & my skin seemed to drink it in faster than usual!

I should mention, my skin does not feel tight or raw. I do stay away from most physical exfoliants as they tend to be too coarse. None of my skin looks inflamed post treatment,

I'll update this review once some time has passed to clarify how it helped my concerns.

Yikes, that's a lot of damage!!
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Acne, Blackheads, Uneven Skin Tone, Whiteheads/Closed Comedones

The price on this is great but frankly, it broke me out like CRAZY!!! Some people said there is a detox period for this product, but I tried it weekly for 3 weeks and nothing improved. Maybe the period is longer than that, but to me nothing this product could do for me is worth the horrible broken out skin I had for 3 weeks...
