AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

product review positives
Even though it was well hyped from the moment I saw this on YTs or Tiktok, I did my researched before trying this out and did not try to jump on the hype as I know that this product can be serious enough to damage one's skin, if not properly used. I finished a whole bottle of Lactic Acid 10% + HA before trying this out. I built my tolerance on actives like AHA. I patiently waited for 4 months, because I know.. skin care is being patient.. This product has the highest AHA concentration I've ever tried. It is suggeted to be used for max of 10-minutes on the face. But the first time I tried it, I really wasnt expecting it to last for 10-minutes bec. i also saw on some reviews that if you're a first time user of this peeling solution, you should still build your tolerance. It tinggles like crazy the first time I used it. (That's coming from me who used an active before, what more from those who haven't tried) I only lasted for about 4-5mins then I rinsed it (careful when rinsing!! Better use a wet cloth first and avoid eye area) I was actually happy with the result, it smoothened my skin!! I haven't experience any dryness around my lip and cheek area. I continue to use this religiously for 3 months now (weekly! not being greedy though I know I can use it twice a week already) I had tiny white bumps around my cheek area before I used this. And I observed that it helped it dissolved (idk if its the right term) I just occasionally broke out - monthly (PMS) but not because of this product, if anything, it helped me prevent any breakout. When I use this product, I always incorporate sheet mask after this on my routine and use HA Acid from the same brand and then a moisturizing cream based moisturizer. It is important to take care of our skin barrier after using this.
product review negatives
Too strong at first, but I managed to tolerate it and I can last upto 10minutes, well, I prepare myself for rinsing around 8-9minutes. Just be cautious , it's too sensitizing if you'll not wear your spf in your AM routine (i mean you should. Everyday!) I have nothing bad to say actually, this works fine and delivers results my skin needs 💜

Do you think it would be too strong for a 13 year old with oily acne prone skin? I’ve had kinda bad acne for two years now so I’m kinda desperate to get rid of it, plus I have used actives before. Great review❤️❤️
