i also bought this after buying into the caroline hirons hype (thank god i did , skin has never looked better). I have been using this every night as my toner. My skin definitely feels smoother and softer and looks more glowy. It also hasnt irritated my skin which using alpha hydroxy acid products regurlarly has done in the past. Will repurchase this

I decided to try this after watching Caroline Hiron's video with Pixiwoo. My skin was looking rather than dull even though I was an everyday Tazorac user. Within a few days of using the toner (marketed as a "peel" in the US) I could notice a difference in the appearance of my skin. It looked brighter almost whiter and a nice pinkish glow dveloped around the cheeks. The texture itself looks a lot smoother and it's softer to the touch. It's only been three weeks and I'm extremely happy with the results.

I got a sample of this product after reading Caroline Hirons' post(s) and have mixed feelings about it.
-1- As the name tells you, it is definitely gentle, but I think a little bit too gentle. Although the packaging says to use it once or twice a week, I have sensitive skin and have been able to use it literally every single day for the past two weeks without burning/redness. My skin appears to blush a bit right after application, but MD Forte III cleanser, to give you an example, feels stronger than this. Yesterday, I actually applied it twice (needing a touch up because the weather was hot), and had no issues from stinging/burning. I wish they would create a stronger version of this product and sell it alongside this one or just reformulate the existing one.
-2- It definitely gives you a slight glow, which is perhaps due to the slightly dewy finish of the formula when it dries. However, part of me thinks it is either breaking me out (my skin is very acne prone) or just not improving my acne much. To be fair, I very few blackheads as of this writing (a good thing), but I am still getting a fair amount of other types of blemishes.
-3- I was put off by the price initially, but I can tell you the 10ml sample has lasted me two weeks with daily use, applying just with my finger tips -- not a cotton swatch. With the latter method, you will use it up much, much faster, but applying it by fingers and using it every day, I would think the full-size bottle could last you six months.
In all, I do believe this is a good product and worth trying out, but I can't see myself purchasing it.
Thank you for reading! =)

I was loving this for the first few weeks of use. But i started to notice more acne break outs and clogged pores. I was very disappointed to discover this was the cause. I ended up returning it today. I suspect the amount of alcohol it contains was a major factor. I probably should of known better but thought that the glycerin in it might counteract the alcohol but obviously it didn't so back it went.

WOW! Never had such a positive result with any skin product so soon after starting use. Bought this after reading that it is a much gentler version of the famous P50. My skin is so sensitive that even the gentlest exfoliation (Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream) can leave me peeling and burning. The first week I used it every other day in the evenings. After the first week, my pigmentation was lighter. My dry patches were cleared up and my skin looked brighter and fresher.
By week three however, I was breaking out in a few spots. I am pretty sure this was the culprit since the breakout wasn't in the usual places I get them. Not ready to give up on it yet, but a lot let impressed than I was that first week of use.

Been using this for a month now, it always breaks me out. But i do like the fact that it makes my skin brighter and less pigmented don't know if i would purchase this again..

I just bought this today at Shoppers Drugmart as I was looking for something that would exfoliate my skin but would also be gentle and hydrating at the same time. The makeup associate recommended this and I have never used a Clarins product before! I love my high end products and for some reason I've always ignored Clarins, I think it's because I thought of it as a more "mature" line, and I am only 23! This product however has won me over just after one use. I put some of this toner on a cotton pad after cleansing my face and spraying some Eau thermale Avene mist, and the results were just amazing. It made my skin radiant and smooth and I can already see my little breakouts getting better. I'm excited to use this again in the morning! The bottle says to use it 2 or 3 times a week, however the MA says I can use it every day because my skin needs to be exfoliated regularly! For reference, I am NC15 (very fair with neutral undertones), with sensitive and dry skin! This has become a staple product already and I swear that I have never been so fast to write a review about something in my life!

This is amazing! I use it everyday (I read somewhere that says it's gentle enough to be used everyday) and it makes my skin so much better: smooth, less pigmentation and when I have some spot, it clears them in 2-3 days. Amazing. And so easy.

This is such a great product, i can't imagine living without it now. My skin gets really dull in the winter and this helps immensely to brighten the complexion and even it out. Due to it's formula it's not drying at all like other exfoliators and surprisingly doesn't irritate me at all. I use it about 2-3 times a week after cleansing, let it sit on my skin for one or two minutes and then follow up with a hydrating toner, moisturizer eyecream etc! Would repurchase this anytime if i ran out!

This was the first product I used that contains AHAs/BHAs and I really like it. It has a great texture and it feels lovely on the skin. It doesn't have amazing results, but it definitely makes my skin more clear and smooth and helps to even out my skintone a little bit.
If I use this regularly (twice a week) it really helps with overall with my skintone and the smoothness of my skin. I also think the salicylic acid (BHA) helps against pimples/spots.
If I have (red) acne scars I use this more often (every other day) and I have noticed that it helps to get rid of the scars too.
The only con I can imagine is that I do think it is expensive (32 euros for 125 ml) but not ridiculously, considering you only use it once or twice a week. (I did about half a year with 125 ml.)
