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.

emma from Chillicothe, OH
i'm extremely acne prone and i'm always looking for new products. it's very rare that i can find a product that can help control my acne but after using this, my acne had disappeared overnight and my dark spots had faded! my skin came out so smooth and i couldn't be happier with this product. i use it 2 times a week, 3 if my acne is really acting up. for the price it is so so so worth it. yes, it does sting, but it's nothing i can't handle. i wouldn't recommend using this on open acne spots.
Wash Face with Hands First
Dominique from New York
This is a peel, so you will feel some sort of sting or tingle-Depending on tolerance level. Do not exfoliate your face or scrub your face hard before putting this product on. It faded dark marks on my skin very quickly. My skin was clear in a month. (Along with other products and a strict regime).
Skincare Junkie from Pennsylvania
This is my holy grail exfoliant!!! This is exactly what I need to feel refreshed once or twice a week! It's inexpensive and works. Everyone hates buying items wear you rarely see a difference. This is not one of those products.
Nicole from Al
Really saw a huge difference in my skin seconds after I used it and I can tell if I go a week or 2 without it
Love it but I also have bad acne
Maddy from Boardman, OH
I love this product and use it multiple times a week… I don't suggest doing that if you have drier skin and if I have dry patches I most def avoid it and was kinda unsure of this product in the 1st place because of my acne but it's great
Absolutely changed my skin
Hal from Ohio
I have been using this treatment for over a year now, it has truly changed my skin. I used to struggle heavily with texture. I use this product once a week if I remember and it has made all of my texture irregularities go away. My skin looks so much better and so does my makeup!
Never would by this product again
Kperey from Florida
It's just not for me
Peke Mom from California
I was worried about trying this on my sensitive skin, at first I only left it for 5min. It did seem to sting at first, but after rinsing my face felt fine. I did work my way up to the full 10min. using it once a week. It only a few weeks I noticed my skin is much smoother and my serums and moisturizer sink in much better. bottom line it works, but use with care.
This is golden!
MeganCO from Colorado
Does it sting a bit? Yes. But a peel of medium strength will. Makes my skin soft and glowy! Sun damage is improved. A must have between professional facials.
Irritating, not for all skin types
L from King of Prussia, PA
My skin is more on the sensitive side, and less than a minute after applying this I felt a burning sensation around my nose and chin. I went online to read other reviews and it seems many others had a similar experience. Will not be using this product again.
Makes my skin so smooth
K from NC
This stuff makes my skin so smooth and soft!! Love it. Definitely a staple item
Believe the Hype
MissRisk from Black Hills, SD
Acids are an important part of exfoliating dead skins cells away from the surface, brightening and allowing for better absorption of your treatment serum of choice. Using this solution once a week reveals a smooth, texture-free surface. I find my serums (Lancome Genifique or Tatcha the Dewy Serum) absorbs so quickly those first few days of the week. You should wear sunscreen every day, but definitely don't forget on the whatever day of the week you decide to use this, and skip any exfoliating products that day as well. This is such an effective chemical exfoliant that you won't need it. And for the love of God, don't dribble this strong, acidic solution on your forehead/anywhere near your eyes!
Velvet from Cincinnati
My skin is so glad I found this. When I start noticing my skin is clogged, lots of white heads, when it's dull, on the verge of a breakout, looking oily or wrinkley.. I use this mask to fix everything. I hover the dropper over my skin, even it out with my fingers, and rinse after 10 minutes. Doesn't irritate my sensitive skin, only good things with this mask
SD from Fate tx
This product work great for me. It tightens your skin makes it brighter and helps with wrinkles.
Can't beat it and then... the price makes it even better!
A.Caffee from Brock, TX
This stuff is awesome. The price and the ingredients make it that much better. Used it and my skin was so soft. I immediately went back the next day and bought one for my best friend. It's so good, effective, and affordable. I use it once a week and it make a huge difference in resetting my skin and making my makeup sit so much better!

Not for the faint of heart
MadelynZzzz from Seattle, WA
This is an immensely powerful product that is not for beginners. Do not use if you have hyper sensitive skin. Having said that, this delivers equally powerful results when used correctly. It will sting/tingle, which is normal for chemical peels. I use twice a week for 3 months and have noticed a huge difference with improved skin tone, brightening, fine lines and pores being tighter.
cami from lancaster, ohio
Immediately after i applied this to my face it started burning. I went to look at reviews just to see if anyone else had this issue or if it was normal but i've seen a lot of reviews that had the same problem. i definitely do not recommend this product.
Jess from Fargo
I put this on and within the first minute I took it off, it stained my face and left a burning sensation. Definitely consult with a doctor before use.
I from Indiana
makes my skin feel smooth but burns while it's on
Skincare MUST HAVE
Kathleen from Centreville, VA
Perfect for your skincare routine. Makes skin soooo soft and refreshed.
Apply to face after cleansing and before moisturizer. Leave on for just 10 min and wash off. Use 1-2 times a week! Lifechanging.
Sensitive skin beware
kass from Jacksonville, FL
Okay so I have very sensitive skin. This stung so bad upon application, BUT it actually worked. I bought this for my textured skin and it worked, it's helped my texture and made my skin smooth but my face was red for a couple days. I'd say it's worth it just be careful if you have extra sensitive skin. I'd recommend doing a patch test before hand.
ChrS from SC
I was unsure if I would like it, or if it would irritate my skin; but I was pleasantly surprised after a couple uses. My skin is noticeably clearer, and has a more even tone. It tingled when I put it on, but did not burn or cause a reaction.
Made face burn immediately after putting on
lynseyb from Louisville, KY
I left the product on for 5 minutes, hoping the burning would go away but it only got worse. I did a patch test of it on my neck first beforehand which did not cause a burn.
Think it works
J from California
I think it works because a lady at work asked me how I got my freckles to fade … I haven't done anything to my face besides use this peeling solution.
