I have never tried anything from Glossier before and this was my first venture into the brand. First of all I want to talk about the packaging - I love the pump dispenser, it really helps you control the amount of product you put on a cotton pad. Secondly and only for aesthetic reasons, the pink packaging is super cute.
I am not new to acids and I have a very oily/thick skin type that is blemish prone with large pores. I have used various different acids from NeoStrata, The Ordinary, and, Skinceuticals, but I must admit that this is my favorite so far. The first couple of times using it, it did sting but it did not bother me. Within a couple of days I noticed that my looked amazing; it's rosy, fresh & clean looking and my blackheads/pores have been greatly reduced. My skin is still oily but not as much anymore, it is now glowy and less like an oil spill. I was amazed that something like this worked so quickly and effectively. I have only been using it at night as indicated as to not overdo it. You can dehydrate the skin and cause congestion if you over exfoliate. I think this would work best for those who have a thicker skin type as I can see this really irritating anyone with thinner, more sensitive skin. The price is decent, not over the top, and I can see this lasting a little while. I am quite happy and hope this continues to deliver.
