    I use this with my clarisonic and finding that I have to rinse several times afterwards otherwise it will leave a soapy residue.
    I will be returning.

    Comments about Dermadoctor Litmus Test Glycolic Acid Facial Cleansing Gel:

    My skin was too sensitive to use this product twice daily at first. I tend to wash my face at night & splash water in the morning. FYI You definitely need a moisturizer to use with this. After one month of use, I haven't had any breakout's, blemishes or red irritated skin. The spot on my cheek that had acne scars is almost completely gone! Highly recommend.

      Comments about Dermadoctor Litmus Test Glycolic Acid Facial Cleansing Gel:

      The salesgirl did a very good job pitching this product to me. I went into Ulta with a completely different--and cheaper--product in mind. Dermadoctor is good stuff, but not great. First, I found that the little wispy hairs around my face are losing their color. I've heard that some skin products with salicylic acid can do that--maybe glycolic acid can too? Also, I don't think this is intended for sensitive skin. One day I skipped moisturizer after washing and my face felt tight and irritated. Next time, I'll try the stuff I originally went into Ulta to buy and try not to get distracted.

      Comments about Dermadoctor Litmus Test Glycolic Acid Facial Cleansing Gel:

      I have bad cystic acne and I hated doing my makeup every day, but this has calmed down my skin making it easier and smoother. My skin type is sensitive, oily, acne prone and medium to dark brown.

      I was recommended this product because of the amount of glycolic acid it contains, and I was told its just below the prescription limit. I have been looking for something like this and I'm happy its been working great so far. I can tell my skin repairs itself faster and my blemishes have been slowly fading. However, it does dry your skin out a lot so use some type of exfoliating sponge to gently buff away the dry parts. It does say to use 3-4 times a week, but I have been using it daily even though I have sensitive skin. It has only been about 3 weeks since I've been using this and I still break out certain times of the month, but I noticed they heal and go away faster. I will continue to use since it's been going great so far this soon, if that makes sense:)

      Comments about Dermadoctor Litmus Test Glycolic Acid Facial Cleansing Gel:

      This was recommended to me to help shed the dry layers on my very dry winter skin. It made me break out in little white heads and red bumps. I think this product is definitely for someone who acne-prone skin. I would not recommend it to anyone with sensitive dry skin.

      Comments about Dermadoctor Litmus Test Glycolic Acid Facial Cleansing Gel:

      I'm in my mid-30's & experiencing hormonal breakouts. The Neutrogena product I tried was much too harsh for my skin so the Ulta rep suggested this. I stuck with it during the initial week when it made my skin very dry & flaky, used 2x daily. After a week and a good exfoliant, it is CLEARLY working well. It is clearing up my skin, giving me a healthly glow and smoothing out my skin. All dryness is gone now. I will buy more DermaDoctor products now that I've found my new cleanser!

          Comments about Dermadoctor Litmus Test Glycolic Acid Facial Cleansing Gel:

          I should have read the reviews BEFORE I purchased this item. I experienced a lot of the problems that the other reviewers did. Around the third day of using it my skin started getting dry around my chin and mouth. It looks horrible and it is also itchy and uncomfortable.

            Comments about Dermadoctor Litmus Test Glycolic Acid Facial Cleansing Gel:

            I'm 26 years old and have dry skin and I'm never allergic to products. People always tell me I have great skin. So when I heard about this product I decided to try it out. After 3 days of using with my MIA I experienced flaky skin (specially around my chin and mouth). Maybe it works with people with normal or oily skin, but I don't recommend it for dry skin.

              Comments about Dermadoctor Litmus Test Glycolic Acid Facial Cleansing Gel:

              I have acne prone skin, so I'm always looking for a facial cleanser that works. This one is great! It left my skin feeling amazing after just one use! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I have discontinued putting it on the skin right around (particularly under) my eyes because it is very drying there. Even after using moisturizer, it dried out and was peeling for a couple days. I think it's just because the skin is so thin and sensitive there--I have not had this problem anywhere else on my face. All in all, it has cleared up my skin and makes it feel wonderful!
