I’m obsessed with chemical exfoliants for smooth, even, and bright skin, so I wanted to try this product, but I had my reservations. I was scared it would be too strong for my sensitive skin and cause excess redness. But, seeing as I’m a beauty editor, and bravely testing products is my job, I forged ahead.
As it turns out, this didn’t irritate my skin or cause excess redness at all. Instead, it helped minimize the appearance of the blackheads that form around my nose. And I swear it lightened up some dark spots from sun damage on my cheekbones.
To be clear, I didn’t use this every day. I used it about twice a week after cleansing and before applying serum and moisturizer. To apply it, I would literally pour a nickel-sized amount into my palm, press my hands together, and then gently press my hands to my skin.
