Really lovely product

A little about me: I'm in my late 20s and have fair, dry, not sensitive skin. My concerns are evening my skin tone, reducing hyperpigmentation from acne and flakey, dry skin. I've used this product as instructed as both a leave on mask and as a supplement diluted it into my favorite hydrating toner. It is brilliant. As a leave-on mask it was gentle and effective. Immediately after using the mask my skin felt soft and happy. The next morning my skin was noticeably brighter. I would buy this just to use as a weekly mask alone. Diluting it into my hydrating toner has been a treat as well. With only a month of consistent use (I use it 2-4 times/week diluted) I've already seen some small improvements in the tone of my skin and the flakiness is almost gone (it's windy and dry where I live - some flakiness is to be expected). There's also a glow to my skin that I haven't seen in a while. I'm extremely pleased with this product and plan to re-purchase.

Love the product

This product has been wonderful. Been using this product every 6 nights. As instructions say, only 1 drop mixed with my night serum. My skin looks better, which is kinda shocking because i only purchased this product a few weeks ago, but it kicks ***

Immediate results

I used the drop of product in my moisturizer method, and the peeling from my winter dryness was immediately gone the next day. Very happy with the product!

Listen. If you're on a RX retinoid and/or have sensitive skin, get this.

I almost never write reviews but I have to for this one. I've been on tretinoin for almost 10 years now, and it's been an annoying journey to find the chemical exfoliant that strikes the balance between being effective but super gentle. I've tried so many things - different acids, strengths, formulas, frequencies, etc. This treatment is perfect. I've been using it as a mask once every 7-14 days, depending on how my skin is feeling. I first put on some healing ointment (like Vaseline) on my lips and around my eyes to protect those sensitive areas, then follow up with loads of moisturizer once rinsed off. I opted for the free sample first then ended up buying the full-size. If your skin can't handle BHA or glycolic acid like mine, give this a try. Please don't ever stop making this!
