Love this product

I have just started dabbling into the world of serums and my esthetician recommended Baby steps to me. I’m sure glad she did! I noticed a difference after the first time I used it.

Game changer for sensitive skin

This is the best thing I have ever added to my skin care routine. I am low maintenance and was hesitant to try it following the daily directions however I saw results in just a few days. Cleared, softer skins with diminished wrinkles around eyes and mouth. I like everything about this chemical exfoliant.

So far so good!

I’m usually very careful when introducing a new product, let alone a strong one so I’ve tried this twice so far. The product definitely doesn’t smell great but I’m not buying perfume and it gets washed off after a few minutes. I’ll give it a few more months of trial and write another review. Definitely prime your skin for this before using it (Mandelic for beginners, lactic for mid and this for experienced skincare users).

Super gentle!

I love how gentle this is, I have sensitive skin and can't usually use an exfoliant every night but this works great to subtly smooth out my skin every night and I love it

Great for sensitive skin

I've been using this as a wash off mask. I have very sensitive skin so I was hoping this would be gentle enough for me to use every week and it definitely delivers. My skin feels incredibly soft after and doesn't leave my skin irritated. Highly recommend for anyone who can't use stronger formulas.
