This is great stuff! Mandelic acids is one of my favorite peels, so this gives you a great light peel without the discomfort of the other popular acids (lactic, glycolic burn a bit more for me). One thing to note is that you should cover dry or damaged skin with vaseline and make sure the acid doesn't cover those areas. I had a bad cold and decided to do a peel, and forgot that I needed to protect my poor raw nose. So my poor nose got a much deeper and painful peel than intended.

I usually love the efficacy and value of MUAC products but this serum is underwhelming. I only use it once a day at night because my reading suggests not to apply with Vitamin C serum which is my morning active.
One of the best things about this serum is that it contains no silicone oils, e.g., dimethicone which are cheap, ubiquitous and cause acne for me. So that is good, but not enough for me to justify the expense when I’ve not seen much improvement. When this is done, I’ll try a 10% concentration from a competitor.
Lastly, perhaps mine is defective but this tends to spurt from the airless packaging and end up off the target area. Not good at this price point.

$40 for 1 oz of cream. The packaging is a big bulky square plastic container. I wished the packaging was sleeker. Expensive for the amount of product we receive. Overall a nice moisturizing under eye cream. Nothing that results in immediate results.

It was tough to pull the trigger on this one (...$52 for something technically ~unecessary~) but it has been a gamechanger. I have olive skin that gives me the gift of hyperpigmentation with any little thing it deems traumatic, like say, a SLIGHT scratch or a TINY pimple. Oh, and I can grow some hair. On my head, on my body, you name it. I shave it off, which always gives me ingrowns, which always leave marks. On top of that, my skin is a sensitive little baby B so nearly anything I put on my (head) hair is liable to give me neck, back, and chest acne. It is annoying. Over the years I have skirted any major issues by not shaving as much as I want to and not making my hair as awesome as it should be. And I'm into shorts now. I have avoided shorts my whole life and I wanna wear them EVERY DAY now. Thank you for reading my personal history of hirsuteness etc. Anyway, I nabbed this during a 30% off sale which made the price much more palatable. I've been using it for about a week. You're not supposed to use it the way I do though. I have applied it nearly every day since it arrived in the mail, and I haven't been washing it off. I KNOW. But, as annoying as my skin can be (see above), it loves chemical exfoliation and I haven't had any negative reactions. It has a serum-y, gel-like consistency and smells like a chemical exfoliator. You can smooth it on like a gel lotion, and it spreads easily, making the whole application process a lot easier than I assumed it would be. I've been applying to my back/shoulders (zit aftereffects), inner thighs (shaving tragedies), back of thighs (KP?), chest (who knows). (I am making myself sound gross, I'm not lol. All these things just really needed improvement.) And seriously, all these areas look MUCH MUCH better. Especially the inner thighs (and by inner thigh I mean legit inner thigh but also the entire "bikini" area) and back/shoulders. Lots of fading of past marks plus general smoothing and a new glowiness. Encouraged, I started putting it on my arms, legs, boobs—even my armpits lmao. I went a little 5 acid crazy tbh. It's so good though! Everything is much smoother, super soft, and looks a lot nicer. I even applied (sparingly) to my neck, which is insanely reactive to hair products, and while that area did get a little red it helped heal an active blemish and faded old spots. And this is all in about a week. I'm looking forward to how good it gets in a couple months. (Don't worry, I'm going to slow down the amount and frequency of application.)So, it has been a gamechanger because now I look better naked and I can use cool stuff on my hair. It has added a whole layer of skin freedom I didn't have before. Patch test please. Moisturize a ton afterwards. Sunscreen on exposed treated areas. Especially good for any areas susceptible to ingrows and for skin prone to hyperpigmentation. But also worth it if you just want smoother, amazing skin.Now, if only upstate NY winter would gtfo so I can wear all the shorts!

I have extremely deep pitted scarring, and really needed this to work. It went okay for first couple of sessions on lowest strength (12% I think), then I went a bit up to 25% by applying double layers.A month later, one area COLLAPSED into a 2mm or so deep hole, over a 2mm wide surface. I thought it was because of the large cyst that had been appearing there before I started the product, and didn't blame the product.BUT, a few months later I observed another area collapsed: Now I have a jagged line from the beginning of an eyebrow stretching across to the other eyebrow :(Stopped using the product after this.It's been two yrs, and I notice I now have HYPERtrophic scars whereas in the past my skin only responded with atrophic scars.The above scars remain. Will never buy anything from MUAC again.
