Ok Product, Subtle Results
on January 25, 2013
I bought the product more for hyperpigmentation- little red spots left after pimples. I do not have any brown spots on my face.
The product itself is not your typical lotion. It is very "liquid-y" and a bit sticky. It reminds me of the texture of Aloe Vera. It remains tacky on your skin for a few minutes. I wait until it dries then apply a moisturizer. I had a slight stinging upon application however I just got done washing my face real well. I have not had any stinging since. A little goes along way with this. I am only applying it to the sides of my face and problem areas as it is a bit drying and I don't want the rest of my face to dry out.
Week results? My skin feels smoother and a little of the red marks from old pimples are not as bright. They are not gone but I realize I have not given the four weeks this product needs. You need to use it in conjunction with a moisturizer as you will feel dry.
I do wonder why they call it a "peel"- I think that is a bit misleading. It in no way acts like a professional peel and if you expect that you won't be happy.
***** 2 Week results. I had some very mild peeling. If I didn't look close I would have missed it. NO breakouts at all. In fact my skin looks clearer. I put it on regularly. In the morning and at night. If I am going without make up and staying indoors I will apply some during the day too. I have noticed a difference. I wake up and my face just looks "Calm" more even.
***** 3 Week result. My dark spots (Hyperpigmentation) are much lighter. (Not totally gone) My skin feels very dry though. In fact even my lips are peeling. It is a little too much dry for me so I am only going to apply it once a day now.
My skin seems more even and calm. The effects are very subtle. I had one day of what appeared to be a very light peeling but for the most part there has been none. But, my skin does seem to be a little more even. I especially notice it when I wake up. I will continue to use the product since I have two bottles. Then I may stop to see if there is a noticeable reaction when I stop. LIke I said previously, I don't think this will remove dark spots completely but it does work to some degree on smoothing out skin tone.
I am 45, a non-smoker, and I use a lot of sunscreen. I have had to use less foundation with this product.
This is a slow process, I would be very leery of any claims that spots have gone away within days. I am not paid to do this nor am I in any way affiliated with any company.
