”This has replaced my 112$ serum that I was previously using. I mean………..I dont think I need to say much more. Thank you for making skin care that has integrity and keeps its prices in a place where people can comfortably have a 3-6 step skin care routine without it costing college tuition. I appreciate it.”

” I LOVE this product offering from Deciem. I purchased this in my second round of ordering (I always try new products when reordering my staples) and it is now one of the every day use products in my standard routine. My skin looks so even and bright after using this for several weeks. I love the smell, love the color, love the application, love everything about it. I haven’t had any issues with peeling or discomfort with daily use of this solution, although my skin is very used to acids and peels, which may be the reason. Highly recommend.”

Softer, smoother skin!

GREAT product, worked really well on my skin. Brief background: I have combination skin (oily t-zone and dry everywhere else). When I wake up, I have slightly oily skin. After a long day at work, my nose & forehead will be oily. After using this product for roughly 3 weeks (every other day), my pores are smaller, my skin is soo much smoother and doesn't get oily anymore. I don't even need to apply foundation or anything anymore. AND, my dry patches have significantly reduced. It controls BOTH my oiliness and dryness, whuut? Haha. I can't rave enough about this product. Please restock, I'll be purchasing again in a few months! :)

Try it!

I like how this can be purchased in different percentage of Lactic Acid and according to some reviews I read before purchasing this, the higher the percentage of Lactic Acid in a product the more it becomes effective BUT depending on the sensitivity of the skin. It could irritate some. I usually use this at night with the Azelaic Acid or with the Niacinamide. It works well and it gives a brightening effect the next morning. The smell, however, is just a killer. I am still yet to finish my first bottle of this, but maybe I won't repurchase again since the Arbutin works better on me.

Overnight results!

My first TO purchase ever as I wanted to slowly introduce chemical exfoliates into my routine. Buying this was my first attempt at incorporating an AHA and I have to say, the following day after my first use and I already felt my skin was so much softer and supple. I only use 2-3 drops and pat all over my face after toner and before my essences. I still have acne scarring but they have faded DRAMATICALLY ever since I started using this. I only use this 2-3 times a week and gradually increasing the frequency of use as my skin gets used to the AHA. I love it so far and would definitely repurchase.

This is the first time i’ve used a serum in my life and i am not disappointed. I am really glad that this is the first product i used bacause i will never turn my back on serums again. It helped my skin become more supple and bright. I use this at night only so it will really be absorbed by the skin without any outside intervention. I will repurchase this ones i use it all up. I have been using this for weeks now and there is still a lot left of the product which is impressive because of your money’s worth.

My holy grail anti-aging product of all time

This and the retinoid are the two most effective way of reducing fine lines and wrinkles. I kid you not. I find that this is a very very mild acid exfoliator to use on the face. Based on my research, this combo will really help cell renewal and cell turnover. This also is a good dupe for the pricier counterpart Sunday Riley's Good genes. I use it after my glycolic toner. It has a very nice consistency because it is creamy and smells good. I love applying on my face. I followed it up with my retinoid serum and cream then seals it off with my rosehip oil. This really keeps my face glow and plump and very healthy looking. I will definitely buy this over and over again!

Will be buying this til the end of time

I credit this and the Advanced Retinoid 2% for making the biggest difference in my skin ever. I wanted to amp up my AHA routine from the Pixi Glow Tonic, so I went for this because I have rhino skin and can handle high concentrations of acid. I read online that some people use this as a mask by applying it and keeping it on for only 10 minutes then washing it off. Some use it every other day. As for me I use it every single day at night with the Retinoid 2% and my skin has been changed for the better forever, not exaggerating. I barely get zits anymore (almost never haha), and any zit goes away in days. My skin is so even and the little white bumps on my chin that I've had forever are almost gone. I barely have to use foundation anymore! I will be repurchasing this forever for sure!
