This is a Star Product for those who are looking for a well-formulated AHA lotion. With 5% glycolic acid plus lower amounts of the lesser-known AHA ingredients lactic and malic acids, all formulated at an effective pH level of 3. IMHO, this product is a great exfoliant especially for those with normal to dry, sun-damaged skin. It contains antioxidants and a dry skin-friendly mix of emollients, while the fragrance from lemon extract is subtle. In many respects, the antioxidants chosen have very reliable scientific records when it comes to their skin-care benefits. Those antioxidants are essential to stimulate healthy collagen production. Packaging is correct for this product as air-tight packaging is critical to ingredient efficacy and stability, and antioxidants deteriorate in the presence of air. It is very normal to experience a small amount of tingling. It dissipated quickly and stop altogether with ongoing use. Within a few weeks of applications, my skin experiences renewed texture, color and tone, as well as a reduction in the appearance of sun damage and fine lines. Taking everything into account, I highly recommend this high performance cost-effective product. I am a strong advocate on scientific medical research and evidence-based information, and constantly want to differentiate between marketing hyperbole and real world effects. I hope you'll find my review Helpful to you. Best wishes and good health to everyone!

It contains 5% AHA at a pH of 3. This sentence is very important, because AHA just work at this degree and then exfoliate well.

I always thought I had sensitive/reactive skin... and I read other reviews saying how this might sting when applied... Well, for me, very minimal to NO stinging. I started off slow -- using this once every other night -- but have no progressed to using every morning before my Derma E Alpha-Lipoic C-Ester serum. I always notice an immediate calming effect and shrunken pores. After about 2 weeks my face is the clearest it's been in a LONG time. I LOVE THIS!

I have mixed type of skin and it is getting dirty pretty quickly. It is also rough and the main problem is scars and pigmentation spots caused by acne. I am using this for a couple weeks and the results are already noticable. My skin has became more smoother and illuminating. I am using it every evening and morning (mixing with C-Ester Serum in the morning). Highly recommended product.
Good for sensitive skin

It burns a little, but it makes me feel like it's actually doing something. My face is sensitive and it doesn't seem to have any negative after effects. Just don't get any sun the next day, you'll burn way more easily. You'll be satisfied if you realize this is just an exfoliator, not a miracle worker.
