I’ve been using this cleanser and peel as part of my facial routine for approximately 2 weeks as part of a review I decided to do upon receiving a discount for the product. I did not use the cleanser for 48 hours after each of two glycolic facial peels (as per instructions). While I have not noticed too much in the way of anti-aging changes, I have noticed my skin feels softer and smoother.
The products contain naturally derived and natural ingredients. My face feels clean after use and not at all dry. I have had no breakouts common to using a new skin care product. Like most “good” products, a little goes a long way so if you do try this don’t go for the half-dollar size dollop when a quarter will do nicely. So far the only thing I do not like is the acrid smell of the cleanser (although some users do not notice).
I plan to continue using the cleanser for at least 30 days before deciding if I will continue using it in my skin care routine. I really need to decide if the odor is that much of a deterrent.
The peel is easily applied by spraying the product on a cotton ball and swiping onto skin. I start at the forehead hairline and work down the face, avoiding the eye and lip areas. The first application I left on for the recommended 30 seconds. At that point it did start to sting. The second time I was able to tolerate for the full minute. The instructions give a 1 minute application time but not to exceed 2 minutes. I’m not yet sure of the results of the glycolic peel so I will continue to use until I can tell if or if not the product makes a difference. I think another 2 weeks should be telling.
The serum is great! Funky orange color with pleasant citrus odor. I get a faint look of orange-y tan coloration of my skin which disappears right away. The serum goes on a little sticky but absorbs quickly leaving a refreshed feeling with no residue. Along with the cleanser I do feel that my skin is softer and smoother.
