This is a nice, gentle, unscented cream, but it's a bit too heavy to use 2X daily on my oily, acne-prone skin. However, the extended nozzle on the tube dispenser is really neat, and it's a good price for the product. Probably would work really well for someone with fairly dry skin.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
I love this product! I use it every morning under the TNS Ultimate Daily Moisturizer with SPF 20. It feel weightless and has no smell. I like that is exfoliates my skin but super gently. I forget that it even has any acids in it since it is so gently. I highly recommend this product.

My dad sells skinmedica in his clinic and I love alpha hydroxies so when I saw the percentage I was really excited to try it out and it was free for me so I had nothing to lose. Plus, it was aha mixed with bha so that's always a plus. Over 2 months later, I can't say much has changed about my skin.
I have usually oily skin and I'm prone to break outs (exfoliation products keep those at bay so I'm good these days). Prior to this, I was using alpha hydrox's 12% soufflee so I thought since this was a higher percentage it would be better. I was wrong. The types of acids are not as strong as glycolic acid and the acids are listed lower in the ingredient list. Salicylic acid is listed really, really low and the percentage of BHA isn't noted at all.
As a moisturizer, it's pretty good but I feel like after a couple of hours my skin starts to feel oilier than had I not applied it.
Overall, I say the product is average. There are a lot of exfoliating products and many of them cheaper (like alpha hydrox's soufflee). So I'll probably just stick to what I had before once I finish this.

My derm introduced this product to me. I use this at night and it made my skin noticeably smooth. Prolong use can fade acne scars or other discoloration. It has a high AHA percentage but doesn't sting my face at all. When I stopped using this for a month or so, my skin slowly became rough again. So, I quickly bought another bottle of this. The packaging of this product is great, simple yet it's spill-proof. I don't know why, but I also love the smell.

I LOVED this product. I put this on at night and wake up in the morning, with SILKY SMOOTH skin. My skin GLOWS. I highly recommends this product!

Comes in the cutest, most convenient, spillproof packaging. That alone gets high marks. I use some pretty aggressive products on my skin (which is normally super-oily and large pored) that can leave it peeling, rough and dry. This smooths away the roughness and hydrates and does not burn my sensitized skin - but a mild quick tingling/stinging does occur in first seconds of application - but thats it. Its non-oily and works well under sunscreen.

I started this product several weeks ago, and I have been extremely pleased with it. It's awesome for the following reasons:
1) It's a pretty strong amount of AHA/BHA, and it rarely stings at all (unless you have an open sore or have rubbed really vigorously with a washcloth).
2) My face is adequately moisturized using this product and no other moisturizer. (My skin really needs a good moisturizer living in the North w/ the drying heat always on.)
3) It makes an awesome primer for mineral makeup. My makeup hasn't ever gone on so well or looked so flawless... it seriously looks like I'm not wearing makeup at all and my skin really IS that nice. It's also not overly sticky
4) My acne scars have faded noticeably.
5) My skin tone looks more even.
6) There's enough product in the bottle that with use on the face only, it should last 2 months.
Overall, I'm *really* happy with this experience. It was $28 well spent.
