combination PIHAcneEczema+ 1
Highly recommend

I have been using this product for a couple of months, now I absolutely love chemical exfoliants. Having combination skin I used to get dry patches on my face, and manual exfoliation and scrubs would only worsen it (no surprise). When first using lactic acid my skin did purge a bit, but that was expected as I had never used AHAs before. I was concerned that my skin would freak out after using this, however I've never experienced any irritation.

This product has really helped with restoring the texture of my skin, as well as regulating my sebum production and lightning hyper-pigmentation left from acne. I'm excited to move up to the 10% version :)

Holy grail serum

been having this for about 7 months and i love it so much!
i used to hate exfoliating agent because somehow it always stripped my skin off, but this one is a game changer. it works really well on my sensitive-acne prone skin, its exfoliating yet hydrating. this serum helps a lot on reducing my uneven skin tone and dullness, i also notice that my redness are slowly disappear. since its exfoliate my skin, it helps reducing acne and whitehead that sits on my face. totally will repurchase
