I used a whole bottle of this face wash as part of a treatment I set up for my skin. Due to sun damage I have uneven skin tone and I thought to use this product in combination with another product that promised to correct uneven skin tone. The face wash lasted for 4 months of every night use. What happened though is extraordinary and I don't suggest you should follow my example. After maybe 2 months of using this product I realized that the concentration of glycolic acid was not high enough to have a visible effect on my skin. I checked online and saw that other users thought so too. Don't ask me to explain how I realized that the wash wasn't delivering, but I just knew after some time. What I did next is what I don't recommend to anyone but nevertheless this is what happened. I started using the face wash as a face mask every other night and left it on my skin, early on for 10 minutes and progressively all the way to 20 minutes. I used it all over my face and even close to the eyes to fight signs of millia. While doing so I also covered a rather big mole between my right eye and my temple. After some days the mole started to be sensitive and its root from the skin started to bleed every time that I would take off my t-shirt or towel dry my face. I visited the doctor who said that I should remove the mole. By this time I had not made a connection between the face-wash and the condition of the mole. Days went by and I continued with my "face mask". By this time the bottle was almost finished. Then I realized that the mole had started shrinking. The bleeding still happened from time to time but the mole too had started to disappear. One morning the mole was reduced to dry blood and when I washed my face it just dropped off. Since then I have a soft discoloration but no mole. Afterwards I thought that what had happened had to be due to my use of the face wash. I cannot be sure of course and I don't suggest what I did to anyone but without knowing I managed to get rid off a mole without resorting to surgical removal as I was planning to. Please, don't try this, as I now think i was too foolish although lucky. By the way my millia improved too but I honestly can't tell if it was due to the face wash or just a natural process over time.
