This product is awesome! I had bought it at my local health food store after a recommendation of someone on the boards and reading the MUA & Amazon reviews. I'm a harsh critic on skin products because I really do believe that a lot of products are scams/rip-off's -- but this product really does work! I've noticed a difference with my fine lines and my acne has completely cleared up. I have hormonal acne and get blackheads from time to time an now they're gone and I haven't had to use any acne creams or washes etc. My skin tone seems more even and I have one acne scar that seems to be fading. Additionally, this product is relatively inexpensive and a staple in my routine. I've read some people had stinging or a little irritation but I had zero stinging or irritation! I have fair skin, blonde hair green eyes - so my skin does get irritated from some products but I had no problem with this one! Definitely recommend - 5 stars!!!

One of most effective creams I've used. I have oily, rough acne prone skin. This smoothed it out quite a bit and prevented new breakouts very effectively. Did I mention it's really cheap for the price too? It dries and mattifies the face, so those with dry skin may benefit from reviva's hyaluronic acid serum on top. Love this line, want to try their glycolic acid toner next. FYI I have sensitive skin and it tingled the first week, but it's no longer an issue. Highly recommend this as a way to start on chemical exfoliants/ comedonal acne treatment. Will move up to the 10% if my skin gets "used" to this. Packaging is blah but perfectly functional. Easy to travel with.

This is the best night treatment I've used along with Arcona's Gentle Solution & Vitamin A Complex. Although I find Arcona's products gentler on the skin, I like to use this cream around wintertime when the weather gets colder and skin drier. I think oily-skinned people might be fine using only this, but since I tend to have dry, dehydrated skin, I top this off with another cream mixed with rosehip oil.
The reason why I love this so much is because it makes my skin glow and controls breakouts as well as blackheads. It's a great way to use up products that break you out. (EX: I had bought a bottle of rosehip oil before I purchased this cream, and I couldn't use rosehip oil because it was giving me cystic pimples, but if I use this cream underneath I do not get cysts.)
This stings when you put it on the skin, but you will get used to it the more you use it. Be careful if you've never used AHA before; use very little a few times a week and gradually increase the amount and frequency. I was already using a lot of AHA's in my routine, so I think I can move on to the 10% cream from the same brand, which I purchased with this one.
Overall, I highly recommend this cream! It will really even your skin tone out and get rid of imperfections such as pimples, blackheads, scars, and pigmentation.

I've been using this for a few nights and I must say it really works. It does sting and it's very important to not get to close to the eye area.
My skin is a lot clearer with smaller and noticeable cleaner pores.
Will update after a few weeks.
