Really really love it :) after knowing it i definitely couldn't stop using it. I use it as a mask 2-3 times a week and another thing is i usually mix a very small drop to aloe vera or cream at night. definitely get rid or blackheads and make my pore invisible. No downside, but i guess for skin that never uses acid before might find this very harsh on skin, Definitely worth taking a try if you feel that other acid hasnt done much to your skin

I really do love this product, however if you have sensitive skin be cautious. When I put it on my face last night the red color surprised me and when i first put it on it burned my face a bit. It went away after about 30 seconds, so I was pleased with that.
I washed it off after ten minutes and my skin was silky soft and smooth! My skin does look refreshed and bright this morning. I love everything from The Ordinary so far and this is no exception!

I was scared of the high % of acids it contains but after some thinking and researching I purchased it.
I used it a couple of times and my skin looks so much better. Now my skin looks more even, the acne marks are almost gone and it's so soft.
BUT if you plan on using it, use sunscreen DAILY as it can make the skin thinner thus making it more susceptible to burning and pigmentation.
