Great Chemical Exfoliator
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Post Inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), Acne, Sensitive Skin

Since Glycolic Acid is one of AHAs, it sure does it great job in exfoliating my skin (chemically). I used it in my PM routine right after double cleansing,, using a cotton pad. It does irritates my skin at first, I dilute it with some water then it's good to go! It helps me a lot with my skin texture and complexion. For sensitive skin, it might be quite stinging so you have to introduce it slowly and gently starting with few times a week and careful not to over exfoliate your skin. Another tips is wet your skin with a splash of water and wipe em using your hand so that the water doesnt get removed entirely (not soaking wet please XD), that way you don't have to dilute your Glycolic Acid. It doesnt take longer than few weeks, slowly but surely, my tiny bumps on forehead got cleared out. Make sure to listen to your skin. If it irritates you, stop using it.** Dont forget to always wear sunscreen (compulsory)**.

Well, for best result, after using exfoliating toner, top it with any hydrating toner :)

Or maybe top up with any moisturizer (after hydrating toner) with for skin calming purposes - Avena Sativa (Oats), or Centella Asiatica, for skin barrier - Ceramides, Triglyceride. For reference, https://blog.reneerouleau.com/dry-tight-irritated-skin-your-moisture-barrier-might-be-damaged/

As always, it entirely depends on your skin too :)

Helps to control pimples!
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Uneven Skin Tone

I started using this product to try and brighten my complexion, while also trying to target small areas of hyperpigmentation from previous breakouts. I use this every other night (alternating with lactic acid) after cleansing to make sure my skin is completely clean and fresh. There's a slight tingle when I apply it, but I haven't experienced any dryness, redness or irritation from this product.

It did seem to speed up the healing process after I attacked a pimple (yeah, I know...), and if I do feel a pimple rearing its ugly head underneath my skin, applying this product does seem to prevent them from emerging completely (hooray!). However after three months of daily use, I haven't noticed a major change in my complexion/hyperpigmentation.

PROS:
- No irritation, other than a slight tingling
- Controls pimples and reduces their appearance
- Leaves your skin feeling clean and refreshed

CONS:
- Haven't noticed a major change in my complexion or hyperpigmentation

Road to clear skin!
Skin Type: combination Skin
Skin Concerns: Blackheads

If you already have clear skin, this toner will make your skin clearer and glow more! If you have any concern on your skin, it might take a while for you to see the results but I promise it's there. I have small acne scars and blackheads and it took me almost a week to notice the effect. I thought this was doing no effect on my face but my friends, family and me noticed that my skin became clearer and glowing compared before. Also, my acne scars are slowly fading because of the glycolic. Keep in mind that this toner is to be used at night time only.
