I have always had issues with my skin : acne, discolorations, etc. and have tried a lot of glycolic acid products before this one. It is a bit harsch on the skin and one must use the 5% formula before considering the 10 % one. It does dry a bit but I had unexpected results only after 3 nights utilisation, and everybody noticed. Also I am an beautician...

I've used this product for 3 years and it's taken 10 years off my face. Be careful with it; it can burn the face. When I feel it's burning too much, I promptly wash it off with hot water then cold water. If the 10% is too much for you, use the 5%.

This will work as long as you keep using it, The results are not long term.

I used a 5% Glycolic Acid cream for a very long time and I thought to try and move onto 10%. My skin is not a sensitive type of skin, I don't break out, have no acne or etc..but I got burned patches of skin from this cream and it took me days to get rid of them..the whole skin felt and looked wrinkled and differently toned. Sorry to say but a very bad experience with this one. Maybe it is useful and good for other types of skin.

לא מאמינה שהייתי קונה מוצרים מקוסמטיקאית באלפי שקלים והמוצר הקטן הזה מאיירהב עשה מה שאף אחד מהם לא עשה. מומלץ לחקור לפני השימוש בנות!

I use it for 3 weeks, day and night. It was stingy at the beginning and when I applied too much on my face, but since there was no redness appeared, I know I am not sensitive to it. The stingy feeling only last for less than a minute. So I put small amount of cream on the back of my hand first and spread it out as a thin layer then apply on my face, no stingy feeling at all. So I am wondering if I applied too much before. Also I keep looking at the result to see if I applied too less, but my face look good recently: moisturized and plump. I noticed that after using it for 2 weeks, my face became so dry after cleansing at night, but wired I could still wear make up decently (though not perfectly) the next morning (usually if my skin was dry and got flakes, it's a disaster to wear make up: no time to wipe them off but too ugly to go out!!!). As my skin flaked so I had to rub them off after washing my face (its easy to peel off with my wet finger). After that, I feel my skin is revived! Though the old acne scars were still there after using for 3 weeks, but the redness of new acne fades quickly than before! (I don't need to put concealer and can cover them with the CC cream I use every day) So I think it works, it's only a matter of time to see the improvement on the overall skin tone.

I have read a few not-so-enthusiastic reviews, so I want to clarify - it takes time to see results (for me it was about 2 months with the 10%), it stings or burns a little in the beginning (my skin got use to it, and some moisture could help alot), and you should start with the 5% and than progress. Also, use sunscreen! But after a few months of every-night use, I see a huge different – no acne bursts (even on my period!), my face are smoother and less red-ish. No product ever made my skin that good. More than 5 stars (when use properly!) * my skin is mixed-oily, and was very acne-prone before this.
