Most Helpful Positive Review The only exfoliation my skin can handle and I love it!
I have had a seemingly hopeless experience with exfoliation. I have a skin condition called dermatographia that makes me prone to rashes when triggered by heat or rubbing and ALSO take a medication that causes facial flushing as a side effect.
I also have dry skin with redness and minor acne, and I wanted to try exfoliation like everyone else!
EVERYTHING made my face flush or break out in rashes. I tried enzymatic face wash, I tried the gentlest konjac sponge, but my skin just couldn't take it!
This is the ONLY thing that, when used every other day (and once a day on my chin and forehead) has not irritated my skin and the benefits have been fantastic!
I still get small amounts of acne, but it's super controllable and my overall texture has really improved! I don't feel the need to wear foundation anymore because it's glowing and even!
I'm sure there are still some sensitive users who have problems with the formula, but for me, it's very gentle.
However, if it works for you, I would recommend using it as often as is comfortable FOR YOU and make sure to moisturize well, because it can be drying!
Most Helpful Critical Review I really really wanted to love this
I had high hopes for this product, but it wasn't effective and was too harsh for my skin. :( I have acne with some acne scarring, and closed comedones around my mouth and on my neck. Since my skin is so fair, it is often blotchy and with irregular tone and redness. I used this for about a month on my face, but it didn't get rid of any comedones, and it wasn't very effective on my acne or acne scars. I used only a little and patted/ rubbed it in. I didn't have a ton of issues with pilling once I figured it out, I just applied my moisturizer very gently after this product, gliding it over my face. But I didn't use the azelaic acid in the morning, because applying makeup over it always made the azelaic acid pill underneath to some degree. My face always itched and burned after I applied this product, but I thought that just meant it was working! I realized after I started using this on my neck that it was actually irritating my skin. It made my whole neck red where I had applied it, and my chin was red as well. My skin is mildly sensitive, and this just happened to be a product it didn't like!

Saw changes in my skin instantly

I highly recommend it!
Awesome products at affordable prices!
HB from Bossier City LA
I use this every night and every morning on my face and neck.
Sarah from SC
This helps my rosacea and larger than I'd like pores like nothing else has and it's sooo affordable. I microneedle with hyaluronic acid and then put this on. Wait for it to dry and add it confidence in a cream at night and cera ve with spf in the day.
Good for rosacea
Julie from Pennsylvania
This worked so well on my face for rosacea!
Dani from Miami, FL
Finally I found something that has been able to get rid of my stubborn scars and texture. I've been struggling for a year, this product as well as the alpha arbutin and COSRX snail musin has finally gotten my texture back to how it was. Other people have noticed that my skin has changed and my scars are diminishing after 2 WEEKS. Amazing please try I've been trying so many products for a year and this saved me.
Buy this if you have perioral dermatitis!
pfcpd from ventura california
I saw someone used this to get rid of their PD, and after buying a bunch of other "miracle" products to help it, this was the only thing to take it away for good. it took a few weeks, results weren't instant. I use it after using a mild cleanser (i use cerave), and add it to my problem areas. I use it twice a day and the bottle seems small, but you don't need much of the cream. I've had the same bottle since april.
nice for fading dark spots but
Maria from tyler
saw reviews that this product helps with dark spots & rosacea which is what my skin struggles with, im on my second bottle of this product & i've seen some results with this fading my dark spots but little to no improvement with my rosacea:( will repurchase again though
disco cat from new orleans
i love this stuff! i'm on my second tube, but noticed results within a week. when i break out, i am pretty much always left with dark scarring that sticks around for months, but this helps fade discolored scars quickly. i notice lightening of scarring within a week. the texture of the products is nice - very silicone-y, though i haven't had issues with pilling when layering with sunscreen/makeup/moisturizer/etc. it leaves a matte finish, but it doesn't exacerbate the dry spots i sometimes get.
Why did I not discover this queen sooner!!!!
Tam from New York
She is a queen! And I stan her!!! Idk why I didn't start using this sooner or why I never heard of this product. I'm 26, and never really took care of my skin until recently, didn't ever wear sunscreen ( yes Ik, major sin). But Azelaic acid has literally changed my skin for the better. I use it every other day at night, along with Alpha Arbutin. So I cleanse, apply alpha arbutin, azelaic acid, moisturize and put vaseline on to seal everything in. 100% recommend this product!
Dan from Houston, Tx
I love tho product, it has become a staple in my skincare routine. It makes my skin look bright and gets rid of acne discoloration. I mix it with my moisturizer at night.
Ann from Peabody
I have very bumpy skin. This has evened my skin and even helps with acne break outs!
Mel from My house
Don't get this if your a teenager it is way to harsh for you skin it made my skin worse!
Love this stuff!
Meg from PENNSYLVANIA
I steered away from it for a month and now I'm back using it daily & I forgot how much I love this stuff! This has been the only thing that has really helped with my rosacea and fading acne scaring. My skin always feels so smooth afterwards & it helps calm my redness around my hormonal acne. I'm currently buying my 3rd or 4th bottle as we speak!
Dani M from Tempe Arizona
leaves your skin super smooth ! little to no fragrance
Lili from California
Firstly, the bottle was much smaller than expected but it's a great product for only $7. I use this after double cleansing and before moisturizing. It has a matte/light finish and I personally didn't experience any pilling. It's helped control (not clear) my inflammatory acne, and helps with the red scarring I get after breakouts. Make sure to use sunscreen!
Overnight good skin
Dee from South Carolina
I use this nightly, over a thin layer of rosehip oil. I always have a good skin day the next day. My pores are noticeably smaller.
I will buy it again!
Rose from California
I put this on and it makes my face not feel sticky due to the Niacinamide I put on before it. Really makes me feel like it's all locked in and won't go anywhere. Also does not dry out my face. Love it.
Mel from Lake worth
I love this product so much. This was the only thing that has been treating my painful hormonal acne. I started using this with the buffet and instantly my skin cleared up. I'm now going on two months of using this and my face has never been clearer, I can't stop looking at a mirror. For the price you really can't beat it and I will continue to repurchase this. I've tried everything you can think of and I've tried salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide and nothing has worked as best as this. So happy with this product
a must have !
V from New York
This really helps fade pimples and my skin texture improves after I use this !! Never disappoints
Jen D from Southern Illinois
I've delt with rosacea for YEARS. Just became something I thought I had to live with as none of the other prescribed methods worked for me (metro gel being one.) My Dr suggested Azelaic acid and did write a script but I grabbed this also to try. My face, mainly full cheek area, would get inflammed to the point it was painful and I was embarrassed to leave the house. After just 1 application (I applied at night before bed) I almost didn't recognize myself in the morning. For the first time in a long time I didn't wake up with a bright red irritated face! It has totally changed my confidence level!
Love it! but too small
Sitara from Texas
I've noticed a difference in my skin within two weeks. A lot of the dark spots have faded and makes my skin super soft. The bottle is just super tiny! Will last u max a month.
Reduces my redness
NettyK from Ohio
This makes my skin feel so soft. Works well under sunscreen and make-up. I keep having to order this because there is not a lot in the package.
Saved my skin
Brenna from Indiana
I always had congested, dry skin. Before I only knew to describe it as acne instead of congested and whenever you look up products that help acne, it's always for oily skin. I would have little slightly raised bumps over areas of my face that inflamed and turned into bigger pimples if I even slightly touched them. I had tried all forms of chemical exfoliations: AHA, BHA, PHA, Lactic Acids, Glycolic Acids, etc. They somewhat helped improve my texture but I still constantly broke out in the exact same areas which left scarring. I decided to try this after hearing about it and wasn't expecting how much and fast it would clear up my skin. Initially I used it daily and nightly but ever since my skin has cleared I've only had to use it nightly. I don't have little bumps on my face anymore and the scarring that has been on my face for years has faded. If you have had similar skin issues then this might be the miracle product for you!!
Repurchasing until the end of time
Lauren the Beauty Researcher from Beverly Hills, CA
I am -obsessed- with this product. I began introducing it to my skincare routine at night and I am so grateful I did. My acne scaring has dramatically improved over a month!! I swear by this product!!
My only point of criticism is that it comes in a really small bottle...or at least smaller than what I was envisioning. Use the product sparingly, as a little goes a long way.
