This is an excellent exfoliant that gives visible results. The recommended use is 1 to 2 times daily, which I find is too much for this strength of product. I would use this 2 or 3 times a week at...

My HG AHA. I’ve been using this since I began skincare a few years ago and have been doing it regularly ever since. The bottle lasts me like.... 6-12 months of use, it lasts forever.

I got a deluxe sized sample of this and it's almost gone. A little goes a long way and I've been using this product a few times a week for over a month. This product does sting a little if you have...

This is powerful stuff and should be used cautiously. When I first tried it I purged a lot of acne. But I kept going because I knew it's special. Now, it burns my face for a few seconds but...
