Per the review below, I've been using it every day because I've been sooo tired of my KP and bumpy thighs... Slowly but surely, it's getting rid of everything! My skin is kinda dry but that's my fault. Once everything is smooth to my liking, I think I'll go to every other day and then finally once a week.

I had been using Sunday Riley good genes for 3 months, with some slight improvement in my large pores and hyperpigmentation. I used this every night, and on the third night, I saw huge improvement in my skin. It does sting for about 5 minutes on application. I never want to be without this. I do use sunscreen every day.

This lactic acid treatment has grown on me quite a lot since purchase. I bought it as an alternative to Sunday Riley’s Good Genes, which just didn’t wow me in the same way it seems to wow everyone else. The high hyaluronic acid content adds extra hydration to the formula without compromising the active acid content of the product, which of course is already gentler (and more moisturizing) than similar glycolic products due to molecular size. Using this overnight really clears away any dryness on my nose—the kind that’s not visible until I try unsuccessfully to apply foundation—and causes no irritation when given time to work, then followed up with a soothing/hydrating serum and nourishing night mask or cream and omega oil.

I’m almost scared of jinxing myself by writing this after only using this peel 3 times but I’ll take the chance- because this is true love!!I have fairly “good” skin; one or two breakouts around my period otherwise pretty clear. I use retinal creams , vitamin C serums etc... but I had lost that “glow”. Because of the super low price on the sample size of this I decided to add it to my order of other things from the site. Wow- I’m so surprised to see such a difference! A little peeling around my nose and chin, but all the dullness is gone from my skin. I got so many compliments today that I looked great- nobody really knew what was different just that I looked more rested and glowy. For reference I’m not new at peels- I’ve done glycolic, TCA, the MUAC radiance peel... my skin is tough , I found the other peels pretty useless because I never saw any reaction , good or bad... very surprised this is working but happy! Highly recommend!

This review is for the 18% strength. This was my first TCA peel ever, so I was quite apprehensive. I know they say you need to start low and build up, but I've been using retin a and glycolic acid for a long time, so I knew my skin could handle it. I bought the sample during a black friday sale and it was quite inexpensive. I'd been using my tazarac and glycolic acid on alternating nights for a while, so I knew my skin was prepped. I stopped all skincare products 3 days before I wanted to do the peel. On the day of the peel, I made a neutralizing solution with baking soda. I cleansed my face and defatted with rubbing alcohol. I applied vaseline to the corner of my lips and nostrils. I also took an eyeliner pencil and made circles around my eyes where I didn't want to apply the peel. I wanted to apply the peel under my eyes separately later, so I wanted to be precise and not run the risk of applying the peel twice in the same area. And off I went with a qtip, starting with my forehead. Honestly, it wasn't THAT bad. Maybe my skin is quite accustomed to acids at this point. I made it to 5 minutes with no frosting. I did a second layer and waited for 4 minutes. This time I could feel the pins and needles. Still no frosting. However, I decided to not push my luck and neutralized it. I didn't have that red sunburnt look people talk about. Next on to the eyes. I wouldn't advice anyone to do this. Infact, MUAC advices people to only use 8% under their eyes. I applied vaseline to both corners of my eyes and underneath my lashline. I applied one layer carefully underneath my eyes, making sure I wasn't overlapping with areas previously subjected to the peel. This time, I could feel the pins and needles within a few minutes, but still no frosting. After 5 minutes had passed, against my better judgment, I applied one more layer. I could definitely feel this. The skin started turning red and at the 8th minute mark I suddenly wondered if I had permanently damaged my undereyes and rushed to wash it off. There was no frosting this time either, but my skin looked quite red under both eyes. However, this lasted only for an hour. Now I was lucky enough to be able to stay at home for a week. I used neosporin the first 48 hours and then nothing at all. The peeling started around day 4. Well, it was mostly flaking. My forehead barely peeled. My chin flaked the most. I was not disappointed though, since I knew that would be that case when there was no frosting at all. Even if there isn't significant flaking, I know my skin would have been exfoliated microscopically. My skin looks nice and smooth, but that's all. My under eyes were a different story. I peeled a clean sheet there. I thought they looked pretty good until I put on a concealer and was blown away by how there were no crisscross lines that made my concealer look bad within an hour. There's no other way to describe it other than that they're just so smooth. Now that I know I can tolerate this peel quite well, I'll definitely do this again in a few months. I'll wait for my skin to frost this time, since I too want to peel in sheets like other people!
