Have been using nightly for about 5 weeks. My skin is very sensitive but has tolerated this really well and looks noticeably less dull. Keeping it on repeat!
I've only used Baby Steps a few times so far, my skin gets real angry and I am not looking to start a fight. I'm really happy to report that I haven't had any negative reactions to the product! While I can't speak to any visible changes at this point, this is a good sign and I'm looking forward to seeing how it helps.
I’ve used it as a 10-min mask and an overnight mask with my moisturizer. I think it was more effective for me overnight. Didn’t have any issues or extra sensitivity after using, left my skin looking fresher without any irritation :)
I'm on my second tube of Baby Steps! I've tried it both as a rinse-off mask as well as mixed, usually with the Better Oil. I notice a difference in my complexion after using, especially now that I've been using for a while. I think it's a good option for beginners, as I had never tried acids prior to this and have semi-sensitive skin. I can feel it working but my skin doesn't look irritated after using. May try one of the other acids after this tube but for now I'm very happy with Baby Steps!
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.
