I didn't buy from MISC, mine was from amazon. I've used many peels - salicylic, lactic, glycolic, mandelic - my face was accustomed to chemical peels but none of these helped my acne or lightened my red spots, or improved the clarity and look of my skin. So I tried jessner, it took me about 5-6 layers to frost (I lost count!) A fan is essential!! It's very tolerable with a fan, without would have sucked big time. But with a fan, i would dare say it was easier than the glycolic and some lactic peels I've done. And once I reached the third layer, the subsequent ones didn't really hurt much at all. I'm actually writing this prematurely, I'm still peeling (day.. 8?) But the skin I can now see is like a baby's! My red marks are still there, but I expected to need to do at least 2 or 3. Downtime sucks for sure, there is no hiding it. At least for my next one it will be winter and I can wrap up in a scarf. I'm very impressed, my favourite peel of all I have tried. For my next one I will do more layering on my problem areas (forehead, temples, cheeks by hairline) because these areas have not peeled as much as around my nose area. I haven't been moisturizing, just using Live Clean Baby sunscreen. Also taking zinc, and vitamin A, and *trying* to drink 1-2 cups of fresh carrot juice per day. I'll write another review after my second peel in October.
