HOW DID IT FEEL ON THE SKIN
When the solution first came in contact with my skin, my skin felt warm and afterward, it had a tingling sensation for sometimes and then it was fine.
DID IT BURN YOUR SKIN
DID IT EXFOLIATE THE SKIN
yes, it did, the first sign of exfoliation was the smooth skin I felt after using it, for the first time, I actually felt how new fresh skin feels like.
DO I HAVE TO REMOVE IT
No need to rinse it off, continue with your skincare as usual.
HOW MUCH TO USE
I spread it on a cotton pad and dab and sweep across my face leaving the eye area, the brand suggests to not keep the skin in contact with the product for a prolonged time.
CAN I USE IT EVERY DAY
The brand does say that it can be used every day for once. However, I would personally suggest that it should be used once or twice a week, preferably at night.
IS IT EFFECTIVE OR DESTRUCTIVE ON ACNE
Neither, it has no effect on acne what so ever.
SPF IS A MUST
you would need to use an SPF no matter what, not taking precaution can result in sunburn, hyperpigmentation.
WHO SHOULD NOT USE IT
people with sensitive skin, people who have damaged skin due to any reason especially people who use formula creams.
I bought it in 2520 from Aodour.
