Did nothing for my sunspots
Posted by Springtime on Apr 20, 2015
I purchased this to lighten up my sunspots. The manufacturer recommends to try the 5% first before the 10%. I have been using Reviva 5% glycolic acid cream for at least two months but didn't see too much difference from my skin. I like the natural ingredients but no benefits. I'll move on to the 10% now.
Good product but not right for me

I ordered the cleanser, toner, and night cream of this variety. As stated, it will work for mature skin. I&#39;m 27, so I was borderline in terms of the maturity in my skin. I find it to be too strong for my skin though, may be my skin is not mature enough as I thought. After using it for a week my skin began to clear up, and whitens. I got great compliments but in the second week I felt that it started to burn and my skin became quite sensitive to it. When I get a pimple, it is not the usual white head or bumps. The pimples are inflamed and pink in color and that hurts like crazy. So buy this with caution. But I do think that it does what it says. Try your luck if you think you have sun damaged and mature skin, because it does really clear it right up. I would definitely use it again but with caution as I did love the result (perhaps will use it a couple days a month). PS: I since gave it to mom, and she loves this product.
Stings, but nice effect

To strong for sensitive, reactive, dry skin. Works fine for à man with thicker, combination skin. It stings slightly even to his face.
Not for my sensitive skin!

I know not everyone tolerates glycolic acid well, and I guess I am one of those people. I used it for a week, only at night, and immediately had small little bumps on my upper lip (a sign of an allergic reaction for me). In other areas it did seem to help heal acne more quickly, and exfoliate. I might try it every other day and see what happens.
Not strong enough

I really wanted to like this, so I could chuck out my more expensive (and more toxic) creams. However, it really didn't do much for my skin. It seems a little smoother the day after, but the effect is only temporary, and over time it didn't make a big difference to discolouration or skin texture.
Too strong for sensitive skin

I used this cream for a couple of nights and my sensitive skin became red and irritated so I stopped. Now I just use it as a face mask for around 10 minutes once a week. After 10 minutes I wash it off carefully, this works for me, my face is fresh and nice afterwards.
Glycolic Cream 5%

Im currently finding this very drying. I have been using for 2 weeks. Thinking my skin will become accustom to it eventually-we shall see.
Not for oily or combination skin

I made the mistake of buying a product I already had a few doubts about concerning my skin type. While it smells wonderful, has some good ingredients and glides on smoothly, all it did for me was encourage acne. Even a very thin layer would make my face and neck feel super greasy. Don't use this if you have oily or combination skin (gels or serums work better). This is better suited for dry skin types.

I'm trying to like this, but I can only use it about once a week or so. I put it on my face and let it sit for about half an hour and then wash it of. Tried leaving it over night, but got a really angry burns.
not sure yet.

hopefully it works well.
