Most Helpful Positive Review Wow! Immediate results.
I've used this mask a few times now and I'm very impressed. After just my first use, my skin felt smoother than it has in years. My skin looked brighter, visibly softer, more even. I have mildly sensitive skin. I'm prone to redness and dryness. This mask made my skin feel a little tight afterwards and my cheeks did have some temporary redness, but that's somewhat to be expected with such a strong AHA. I moisturized afterwards with The Ordinary's standard moisturizer. I did not (and do not recommend) use any other products that evening. Just my pre-peel wash, the AHA/BHA mask, and my moisturizer. This product is very, very strong and should be used on a night you're not using any other actives to reduce irritation. I did a ton of research before I purchased and used this product, and I would recommend anyone considering it does their due diligence and research it as well. It's definitely a very powerful chemical and perfectly safe if used properly, but I can see the potential for disaster if used improperly. All in all, I definitely recommend this product for 25+ skin. I think it's probably more powerful than someone under 25 needs, unless they're dealing with acne scarring or some other topical skin concerns that would warrant a strong acid like this. If you have rosacea, I definitely recommend you consult with a dermatologist or esthetician before trying this product.
Most Helpful Critical Review I would never buy this product ever again
I read how to use this product and once I received it, I made sure to follow directions. I used it once a week for three weeks, for no more than 10 min and then washed it with lukewarm water. I noticed some stinging on my cheek and chin area but I thought it was normal because it was mentioned everywhere that it stings a little. After the third week, I realized my cheek and chin area, the skin was damaged and really flaky and peeling off. My skin was literally peeling off and it hurt really bad. So I searched it up, and noticed how it happened to a few other girls too. I still have this burns on my face and they look really bad, I tried to make it a little better by using petroleum jelly and other burn creams but nothing is working. And my skin looks really gross, and dark and also really flaky. I definitely DO NOT recommend this product at all. It doesn't work on everyone's face, and it can legit just ruin your whole face and the company won't do anything about it. I really hope my skin heals I'll give it some time but if it doesn't, I will be taking bigger actions. Thank you for reading this, have a great day.

Once a week with this mask. It brought everything to the surface after about 4 weeks any new break outs would heal over night. Wearing sunscreen is a must with this product or you risk more damage.
Excellent at home peel
Kaykay from Los Angeles
I've been using this product for years. I am glad that Ulta carries it now and I don't have to order from the Deciem site.
It gives my skin a extra glow that lasts 2 days. I do the peel bi weekly. After I rinse out this product I make sure to use cosrx snail mucin essence for extra tlc.
Amy Lynn from Milton, PA
This is HG for me!!! If you are not used to this type of exfoliant, i would used once every two weeks for a month then once a week for another month and then twice a week on out. I use this twice a week and i see a huge difference in my skin. Its so smooth and soft, my dark spots aren't super dark anymore either. I even feel more confident going out in public sans makeup. For the price, I highly recommend. I also use a facial lil after and it feels amazing applying the oil to my face after something so harsh. Since using an oil after i haven't experienced dry and uncomfortable skin.
One of the best peels I've ever used
Lucy from Smyrna Tennessee
I am a 61 year old woman who came from a long line of women who would not leave the house without makeup and preparation. I am trying to age gracefully but in reality I am fighting it kicking and screaming. I've used many peels in the last 30 years and I have found this one to be the best and I almost didn't order it because of the extremely low price! I am so glad I did. It does an amazing job of restoring glow to the face and refining skin. It definitely minimizes pores. I would highly recommend
THE BEST FOR A QUICK RESULTS PRODUCT
mirmaya from new york
this is the best peeling for a quick result, you feel soft clean and it does help texture skin.
the best for 1 or 2 time in a week
Works well for the price.
CB from Alabama
I was looking for a good genes alternative. This was recommended by the whole internet so I figured why not. SR you put it on, moisturize and done. This you have to wash off after 10 minutes. I did have the dryness but expected that. If you are ( I am) a person that prefers simple and quick this probably isn't for you as a regular routine.
Nikky from Gurnee
I'd give it no stars at all. After reading the reviews and assuming it's good, I decided to give it a try since I have combo skin and acne. I left it on for 10 min like the instruction said, it was burning awfully bad but people said it usually does so I wasn't worried.
It burned half of my face like I had acid on it. I have white bubbling on my face now that looks like a bad burn. Don't even waste your money on it.
Not for beginners
Claudia from Wisconsin
It's definitely my fault for not doing research on AHAs before using it, but I would never recommend this to anyone new with acids. I used this twice (a week apart) and it burned my skin soooo bad to the point where I couldn't even wash my face the next day without extreme redness and irritation.
Nice at home peel. Don't use if you have sensitive skin.
JM217 from Brooklyn
I like the peel but didn't notice a major difference. Guess I have to stay with my spa/salon peels that are much stronger.
I have a high tolerance after years of getting peels, so although I have sensitive skin, I can handle this peel.
Ree from Madison Heights, MI
Love this product! Noticed results immediately. Face looks brighter.
It burned my skin!
Carla from Santa Ana
I put it on my nose and chin and it started burning immediately. Couldn't tell you if it works because I had to wash it off within seconds. Don't use if you have sensitive skin.
Kira from New york
Please discontinue this product it is extremely harsh, my skin was super irritated and burned for over a week. My skin was super dry and flaky. There were rashes on my face from this and now I have discoloration. Do not buy this please
Smoother skin after 1 use!
Cat from Seattle
I have very sensitive skin so I wasn't sure how this product would work for me. I applied it for the first time at night, left it on for 8 minutes, and rinsed off as directed. I noticed my skin looked and definitely felt more smooth the next morning, but the best part is it's now 3 days later and my skin still feels super smooth and looks better too.
i would not buy again
ella from San Jose, Ca
I've been using this product for about a month now and saw minimal changes to my skin, i have combination skin and acne pretty much everywhere on my face and this barely helped, The redness has gone down a little bit but I most likely will not buy this product again.
Abby from Florida
makes my skin feel refreshed and smooth
Never knew I had sensitive skin until I tried this
Rdahlg from Cleburne
Two drops went to apply to face burn immediately had to wash off I didn't think I had sensitive skin because all my other products make up etc. all work really well for me so now I have wasted a whole bottle I could take it back but I threw away the box so there's that
Helps a lot
Abby from Kansas
This is probably the best exfoliant you can get that doesn't scratch your skin. If you don't use it every week, it won't work as well, but it is still great.
i would definitely buy the product again
Nayelii from Conroe
I love this product because I was struggling to get rid of my acne's scars and I look add at TikTok and I found that this was good and another product and honestly my face feels better and I love it so much I see a difference.
It did nothing!!
Hollsie from Los Angeles
I have used this product twice. The first time I used it I applied a thin layer to my face and neck waited 8 minutes because I didn't know how harsh it would be on my skin. I washed it off and applied moisturizer. I waited a week and no peeling at all. So the second time I applied more product. I left it on 10 minutes it burned more. I thought ok great it's going to exfoliate this time. It did not do anything! I had high hopes for this because I read so many great reviews.
Oh it works!!
Rachey27 from Okc
I have sensitive skin and it does burn/sting pretty bad and withing two days my skin is peeling off in chunks for about 2 days. BUT man has it taken years off my face. It has made my skin so soft and I look glowing. I was using once a week but am cutting back to every other because I felt once a week was too much for my skin. Beautiful skin is worth the pain for me.
I am finally happy with my skin!
HardyHeartHat from Bozeman, Montana
When it comes to skin products, my skin is sensitive enough that making any change to my skincare routine is a serious decision. As someone that struggles with cystic acne, oily skin AND sensitive skin, a lot of products geared towards my particular problems are either too harsh, or if more gentle, have little to no impact. Acid based face-washes caused significant flair ups, ones that couldn't be chalked up to an expected 'purge', and they also left my skin tight, dry, and painful (I chalk this up to the daily use). I currently use an eminence wash, serum, and moisturizer. I have no major cystic blowouts like previous years, but my skin is still rough, dull, and has regular, albeit smaller, cystic occurrences. My derm wanted me to go on hardcore meds, but I didn't, so I felt like I was out of options... Enter this peel, stage left. I read the reviews, did the research, found dermatologists recommending this product specifically, and given the price point, thought, "Why not?". After a test patch on the underside of my chin and jawline (very important if you're from the sensitive skin crew), I felt no prolonged burning during application (tingling first 5-15 seconds subsides), and saw no adverse reactions for several days thereafter. I took the plunge for a full application the following week, and after incorporating this every 4-5 days into my routine for several weeks now, I've noticed the following changes: less tiny bumps n my T-Zone, and less 'larger' cystic acne overall; my skin is smoother, has an increasingly radiant glow, and previous acne scars are becoming less prominent in pigmentation; there is a genuine, appropriate purge occurring on areas of my skin, these areas aren't painful, swollen, or scaly, and none of the new pimples are cystic in nature; the oiliness of my skin has neither increased or decreased (to be expected), my skin is still well-hydrated, and I'm happy as a clam.
Irritated my skin
Cris from San Diego
I have combination skin and this one burned my face when I had it on for a couple seconds. I had to immediately wipe it off. It says to not use on sensitive skin
Dani from Virginia
This is a great chemical peel. My skin is soft after using and I definitely notice a difference in pigmentation and breakouts.
MsPaq from Virginia
I bought this months ago and was scared, I finally tried it and am so impressed! I will be adding this to my routine! I am still fighting random hormonal breakouts at 35 and with my skins texture changing, I'm getting fine lines and acne. My skin feels incredible, even after the first use. Yes, I did have some tingling and minor burning, but the burning was pinpointed to a few blemishes I had!
Am I doing a facial or covered in the blood of my enemies?
Viví from South Carolina
Who cares??? This stuff is great! I have stress acne and this stuff really helps!!!!
