I first used this product when I got it in a birchbox subscription one month. I love this stuff. I have sensitive skin that reacts to many products. I do fine with the sensitive skin peel product and use it 2X a week. The instructions say to avoid eye and lip areas. But, I much prefer an enzymatic exfoliator for my lips as opposed to a mechanical (sugar) scrub that are more aggressive and can leave tiny scars over time. So, I use this on my lips, but only 1X a week and I only let it sit for 3 mins, no longer. It does sting some and it makes my lips red at first, but that calms down and my lips are left feeling soft and supple. Also, I have been researching treatments for milia (I have them beneath my eyes), and started using this on my undereye area as well. Again, I only leave it on for 3 mins. It also does sting, but I am finding the milia are slowly decreasing and my undereye area is not as crepey as it once was. But, I am by no means recommending this to anyone. It's just what I do and what works for me.
I also keep it on longer than the directions state, up to 15 mins. When I do this, I see an immediate difference in my skin tone - it is more even, lighter, brighter, and my acne scars are diminished.
Using this weekly over time has made a huge difference in my skin and I highly recommend it especially over more aggressive exfoliators for just everyday needs. I know stronger acids will provide much deeper and more noticeable improvements. But, if you just want a basic exfoliator, this is a great one.
