”Love love love this product! Before this I was using the nip + fab glycolic night pads both morning and evening & they were great but I started to notice after a while they were less effective. I then found these which were stronger and also far cheaper and my skins been so clear that I literally only use this every now and again. The only thing I don’t like is the tacky feeling after but it’s a very minor thing. Overall the product & price is fantastic.”

Great value, good results 👍🏼

For its price, it’s a bargain! It’s a great chemical exfoliator. I usually use this when I have increasingly wild hormonal imbalances or when my period is coming up, because that’s when my pimples pop up out of nowhere. I find that this prevents clogging too and cleans my pores! Although, I still recommend using BHA for a deeper clean.

I use chemical exfoliators as a staple in my routine. I used to use tretinoin but now I switched to glycolics. This one works just right. The 7% potency is just right to keep my acne at bay, I don't get zits at all yet I don't get redness all throughout the day, which I would usually get with my previous glycolics even when I'm always wearing sunscreen. I love that this has other ingredients to avoid irritation from using acids. It's not at all drying! I can tell that this bottle will last me a loooong time! 😍

I have been using this for 2 weeks now, and I can already see a little improvements in my complexion. I even have softer skin now. The only downside to this product is that it's being sold with a high price. However, I probably would still buy it once I finish mine. Hope my face gets even better the longer I use it!

My Favorite TO Product

I have acne prone skin that doesn’t really get along well with many products. I love chemical exfoliating too and I’m so glad that this one worked for me! In just a matter of almost a month, my pimple marks faded drastically and my skin is gloooowing!! ✨❤️ I’m really happy with my results. Be careful tho, don’t overexfoliate because it can do more harm than good. I use this only 3-4 times a week and it shows visible changes if used properly. Just respect your skin barrier!

Good for acne prone skin

Actually this is my first time using glycolic acid as a toner, although I’m not new to using acid to treat acne. I tried salicylic acid toner before but it was too much for my skin, this one though is great, I agree to other people who actually used this and feel a slight stinging sensation upon application but it’s tolerable. Nevertheless this product is worth every penny.
