      Comments about Dermadoctor Litmus Test Glycolic Acid Facial Cleansing Gel:

      I have tried tons of face washes and this is the only cleanser that does what it says it will. It not only helped with my breakouts but it diminished down a lot of my scars too!! I used to break out in my T zone so bad and then also hormonal breakouts and after a few weeks I noticed that my breakouts were less and less till it was virtually non. So happy one of the professional esthetician that ulta has come in recommended this product!

            Comments about Dermadoctor Litmus Test Glycolic Acid Facial Cleansing Gel:

            An esthetician at Ulta recommended this product to me for my acne. I had tried a variety of salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide based acne treatments with no luck. Since my acne is mainly in my cheeks, it is hormonal. While fighting hormonal acne is difficult, the skin renewal process of the glycolic acid keeps pore from clogging. This has completely eliminated my cystic acne.

            Really good stuff! I bought it after being so desperate for something to even out my awful skin texture. After one wash I was HOOKED. However, don't use it too much.. I used it, against my best judgement, twice a day every day for a week and my skin became very dry and irritated. I use it now every other morning with my Clarisonic and my skin is SO improved. Tons of people compliment me on how much better it looks.

              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.

              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.

                  Does this product reduce the appearance of dark acne scars?

                    A:

                    Yes, because Litmus Test is formulated with glycolic acid, which gently exfoliates the skin, it will help to reduce the appearance of post-acne discoloration.

                • Q:

                  I love this product but it's really dry around my eyes and mouth now. Do I need to slow down on the use 2x morning and night or do I just need to give it some time so I can get my skin used to it ?

                    A:

                    We recommend reducing the frequency of use of this cleanser to once daily or to every other day if you are experiencing dryness or tightness. It works great as a nighttime cleanser in tandem with a gentle cleanser for AM use such as Born To Be Mild Medicated Face & Body Cleanser (Item #: 2161587).
