I like this gentle (and vaguely moisturizing) exfoliating peel. I use this about once a week during the summer, and more often in the winter. Don't apply or rub it in a steamy bathroom - it will take forever to dry enough to roll off properly. I like the amount of rubbing it requires - it's a built-in lymph massage. I like that there is no risk of over-exfoliating, which is a …Read more

This is NOT a pleasant-smelling, relax-with-a-mask sort of product. It stinks like sulpher and pickels, and it is a pain to get off, but it works. I use this as a spot treatment, only applying it to erupted blemishes, as directed. I alternate this mask with one of the moisturized MB masks. Highly recommended, but be warned - beauty stinks!

A fairly intense product for oily skin. I love this toner, and it works well on my moderately oily, acne-prone skin. Removes and controls oil well but doesn't over-dry my skin. It has a very pleasant scent despite its high alcohol content. A good value for the price.

It is a bit green/yellow, so I do find that it has a color correcting benefit under or without makeup. A little goes a long way, so it is a …Read more

Calming, moisturizing mask. It reduced redness a bit, and left my skin feeling softer and much less irritated. Pleasant light floral (chamomile) scent. The Calma mask is a nice, oil-free alternative with very similar results.

I liked this product - it did seem to shrink my pores and at least lighten (if not remove) my blackheads. Difficult to remove, but worth it. I will probably use tums (calcium carbonate) instead of this product when I run out.

Works very well for clearing and preventing cystic acne. Unfortunately, clearing cystic acne usually starts with the development of any blemishes you may have brewing. I kept using it, and I like the results. I have sisnce slacked on this product and I've broken out again - get on the bandwagon and stay there!
