I love this product! I've been using it for about a month and it's made my skin feel very soft and it has eliminated the lumps I was getting from clogged pores on several areas of my skin. My pores even look a little smaller!
For reference, I'm in my early 40s, I have very oily skin with acne, I use topical clindamycin for my acne, I have enlarged pores and my skin is fair. I also get regular facials to help my pore situation. This product, combined with the facials, is really helping my pores!
I was worried about trying this product, as I have very sensitive skin. Surprisingly, my skin did not react to this. I experienced no breakouts or "purging" as others have complained about. It did burn the first time I used it. I've been using it about 3 times a week, at night, since December. I follow with Cetaphil cream. I can see a difference the day after I use it - my skin looks more supple and fresh, but I'm not convinced the product is effective for any long term results. I'm 25 but I had been noticing the lines on my forehead to be more noticeable, and I think the regualr use of this product keeps them at bay. I like the results so far, but I'm not sure that this is a Miracle Cream. I thought it was expensive, but I've been using the same jar for 4 months and am not even 1/2 way through it. I also do not like the glass jar packaging.
Great product. I would not recommend for anyone who has sensitive skin. My skin always looks terrific when I use this product. It is great for combo skin and for skin that can handle this AHA percentage. Love it.
This product is certainly better than some of the other aha products I've used. I think it is well priced and effective. I have had better results with Murad's Night Reform and continue to see the improvement in my skin. However, this is a good alternative.
I cannot express enough how much I hate this product. It has made my skin worse! My skin looks older and drier, plus I now have weird cystic bumps on my nose. I can only hope and pray to get my skin looking like it did before I used this product.
For ref. I'm an MMM with light sundamage the seemingly eternal clogged pores from daily high ppd sunscreen usage. I tried the AHA souffle back before the package redesign and wasn't impressed at all.
Recently gave it another go and love it!!! I've been waking up up with glowy beautiful skin which looks much smoother. Texture is a little tacky and it tingles going on, but since I use it only at night it's tolerable. Slow on red marks, so I use Diacneal as a spot treatment (amazing) which is too strong for full face use.. which is where the AHA souffle come in.
I LOVE this cream. At 45, I've tried my share of lotions on my acne-prone skin, and this is one of the only ones I've ever used that does not make me break out. I wake up looking fresher and my skin feels great! Highly recommend this, especially when you consider the price which is very very reasonable.
I started using it last week. My face is breaking out like nobody's business. I look like a freak. I'm going to stick with it and hopefully it clears up. Admittedly I have been overusing it so I am cutting down to just using it once at night. I will update. Update6/17: I stopped using this. I kept breaking out and so I went back to using my old skin stuff and the breakouts stopped. I really wanted to like this because it is so cheap and so many people seem to love it.
Disco Inferno - burn baby burn. Ouch! I was so hoping this product would produce the same results on my skin as it did others. Sigh. No such luck. I actually dreaded putting this stuff on my face. I know the burning sensation is the AHA doing its job, but I couldn't stand it. Plus, my skin got WORSE after using this in a trial period, and there was nothing smooth about my skin. It was blotchy, pebble-y and red. Not recommended for sensitive skins!
so far ive been using this for about 4 days now. i have yet to see any improvement with my acne scars. as for my skin texture, my face feels so smooth. it feels as if i have gotten a facial and exfoliated every aspect of my face. my face has never felt better. i have not seen any purging except for one cystic pimple on my chin. i really love this product. however, because i have only been using this for about 4 days, ( with no improvement in discoloration ) i gave it a three. HOWEVER, i will update within a week or two. =]
i've been using this for about four weeks now and i really like it. my skin looks better than ever. i get fewer pimples, my skin is smooth and even...it hasnt completely erased my acne marks...but better than nothing right??
