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.... Read more

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 ๐Ÿ’œ... Read more

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 didnโ€™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. Iโ€˜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.... Read more

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).... Read more

Left on longer, this concentrated blend of acids will assuredly tip the scales in favor of irritating skin rather than offering benefits. Skin needs help exfoliating, but this kind of intense hit doesn't provide natural help with exfoliation; rather it can be a shock to skin. It's also worth noting that regulatory boards around the world recommend no more than 10% concentrations of AHAs in skincare products, at least for those you use daily. ๐Ÿฅฃ Contains a mix of glycolic acids and salicylic acid in a pH-correct formula. ๐Ÿ’ง Good mix of hydrating ingredients. ๐ŸŒค Potentially impressive results if you have advanced signs of sun damage. ๐Ÿ’ Inexpensive and fragrance free....

๐Ÿ˜ณ The high amount of AHA can definitely prove irritating to many skin types. Use 1-2 times aeek and donโ€™t use it with other active ingredients.... Read more

Wow the ordinary does such a great job at an affordable price point! I've been using this as part of my night time routine for quite some time. It really helps diminish the look of my dark spots. I suffer from many dark spots scarring and it's hard to get rid of them completely but this definitely helps... Read more

This peeling works really well against spots and to prevent outbreaks in the future. It's easy to distribute over your face and due to the distinctive colour you end up looking like a vampire after a satisfying meal ๐Ÿ˜‰ It contains an excellent mixture of exfoliants and does exactly what it advertises....

This peeling is very strong and can cause irritation, redness and pain. Only use it if your face is already used to exfoliation and don't mix it with other active ingredients.... Read more
