AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

product review positives
This is the second chemical exfoliant I ever used and so far I like it the best. That said: I think I got quite lucky that I didn’t seriously damage my skin by using such a strong exfoliant right at the beginning of my skincare journey. Which brings me to the probably most important part of this review: This is one of the products where you absolutely should read the instruction before using it and follow it to the point! Do not apply it on damp skin! AHA is water soluble and thus the exfoliant becomes much more powerful on wet skin which increases the risk of damaging your skin or even chemically burning it. Also start with leaving it on for a shorter period of time (especially when having sensitive skin) and work your way up. I‘d also advise patch testing before using it on your face. Why I love it? First: the colour and texture are gorgeous and feel somewhat luscious for me. I also like the smell. I do experience some light redness right after using it but my skin feels so much cleaner, smoother and brighter afterwards. It also absorbs any following products much faster. By the way: since this exfoliant is quite demanding, I always follow up with super gentle and smoothing ingredients and stay away from those that cause tingling on irritated skin (for me that Niacinamide for example). And that probably goes without saying but sunscreen is an absolute MUST the next day.
product review negatives
As I already mentioned: this is definitely a product that should be handled with care as it can absolutely cause harm if applied wrong or if used on the wrong skin type (really really do a patch test with this).
