I enjoy this product

4

I feel like this has improved my skin texture a bit and my skin looks more smooth after a couple of uses. It does have a bit of a tacky finish, but that's not a big issue to me.

Next day glow!

4

I love this gel!  I can actually tell the difference in the morning after wearing it all night. My skin looks brighter & just all around better. The only reason for 4 stars is because of the sticky feeling it has once it dries.

Hydrating + gently exfoliates

5

I tried many AHA products, but nothing gives me the fine line reducing, hydrated glow this exfoliant does. Doesn't clog my pores, and doesn't feel heavy on summer nights. High recommend to those with bumpy skin.

...not for sensitive skin

4

Holy moly this stuff is STRONG. Burned the crap out of my skin as soon as I put it on so I quickly rinsed it off. Sensitive skinned peeps, beware. That being said, I think that even though it didn't work out for *me* personally, I know this is still beloved by many and PC has a history of very well formulated actives. I repurposed this to exfoliate the backs of my arms to get rid of my KP bumpies and it worked great.

Decent Product, But Very Tacky Finish

3

I've been working through a sample of this exfoliant for a few weeks now, and it seems to be working decently well. I noticed the appearance of slightly smoother-looking skin after the first day (in terms of lessening my bumpy texture, not wrinkles). I was hoping to see some fading of my hyperpigmentation from acne, but I'm not sure if I see any difference; I'll have to give it some more time. I'm not a fan of the finish, it is VERY tacky on my skin, so much so that I have to wash my hands again before applying my moisturizer/oil on top as my last skincare step. I can only use this exfoliant at night because the tackiness/heaviness makes my face shiny. It's an okay product overall, but I know of other effective chemical exfoliants with similar ingredients and better textures.

Must Be Great for Sensitive Skin

5

I don't have sensitive skin but I was worried I'd still experience irritation after using this because of the warnings on the bottle. I've used it three days in a row and it's been great. It doesn't pill under my other products too which is what I was nervous about after the layer it leaves on your skin. I've also seen improvements in my skins texture which is an added bonus. Great price for the full size bottle for the results I'm seeing!

Beats the BHA for Sensitive Skin

5

I originally purchased Paula's Choice 2% BHA, but after using it twice, it was veryyy clear that my skin did not like that product. It burned my skin for about 15 minutes and was quite irritated. I didn't consider myself having "sensitive" skin as that was the only product to irritate my skin that I can remember. I swapped for this AHA and it's much more gentle on my skin without sacrificing results. I personally wanted the BHA for the "deeper" pore cleansing, but it's not necessary. I've been using this for over a month and have seen mild improvements already. When I do get a zit, I can dab this on it overnight and it expedites the extraction and healing process by a few days.

This product has absolutely made a huge difference already (5 days) in the texture and brightness of my skin. One of my favorite products by far in the January Beautyfix Box. Thank you Dermstore!
