I won't give this full stars since I haven't compared this to other glycolic acid solutions.

I'm not one to splurge on expensive skincare products when there are perfectly fine alternatives that are much cheaper (The Ordinary being a notable example). But during a period of bad acne I couldn't get my hands on the Ordinary's glycolic toner, so I bought a sample …

This works beautifully with their +HA moisturiser for really hydrating the skin. I mix three drops of it with the moisturiser every morning and night.

A note about squalane: it is a penetration enhancer so while by itself it may not break you out, if you combine with other products, products which didn't used to break you out might. So yes, squalane (regardless of where you buy …

I am tentatively excited about this product, tentative because I've only used it for a week so far. My skin is sensitive to a lot of things, including dimethicone. Dimethicone works fine for most people which is why a large number of moisturisers have it. For me though, it causes small breakouts, and that makes finding the right moisturiser VERY hard.

This product broke me out. On the first night, I was impressed. For the first time I woke up with a soft face instead of it being an oilslick. With continued use however, it started giving me whiteheads on my forehead, which is usually clear. Then, I started getting dry, flaky patches which was weird for my oily skin. I stopped immediately.

What concerns me is that it contains wheat …
