I'm redoing my review since I've been using this nightly for a month or two and seen a big change on my skin. During the first couple of weeks my face got so dry it was peeling and itchy. The cream was stinging like mad for about a half an hour after every application. Later on it settled, there's only a slight tingling for maybe five minutes, blackheads and all sorts of clogs nearly gone, old scars are healing and light wrinkles disappearing. All in all my facial skin feels a lot stronger and healthier, less sensitive. Redness, tightness from drought and excess oil production during the day have all reduced. My skin is thin and delicate so I won't be moving on to the 10% cream, but will keep this 5% in my arsenal. This cream has a subtle scent like lemon yoghurt, delicious in my opinion.

Been using faithfully every night for several weeks now and unfortunately have not noticed even the slightest change. Don't really even want to give it 1 star, but I have to...

My skin type is acne prone skin and lack moisture and my mom is just a normal skin but caused break outs to both of us. In my case i thought it was just that time of the month that made my skin itch and extra break outs but even when my mom started this she right away got at least ten red spots that looked like acne and did become an acne on the third day. Please be cautious with this item prior to purchasing. 저는 여드름성 수분부족형 지성피부이고 엄마는 그럭저럭 건강한피부타입이에요 그런데 이제품을하고부터 저는 평소보다쫌많은 염증성여드름들이올라왔지만 생리주기와겹쳐그런가보다했지만 저희엄마도 사용후바로 여드름같이생긴빨간것들이제법올라오더니 3일후엔아예여드름으로되서올라왔어요.둘다엄청간지러웠고 아직진정이되지않아 노력중이에요. 구매전피부에꼭얼굴에조그맣게패치테스트꼭해보세요 전 팔안쪽에테스트햇을땐 멀쩡했은데 얼굴에선 난리났네요ㅠ

המוצר שרף מאוד מאוד דמעו לי העיניים והפנים היו אדומות שמעתי רבות על החומצת פלאים הזו אבל בשבילי היא לא התאימה, (עור שמן).

Have only been using for a month but can definately see results, my skin is much brighter, just need to remember to moisturise after all your skin will become a bit dry.

This burns on cuts… and I saw no difference. Like what does this cream do again?

Perhaps i used this product wrongly because i didnt put my moisturiser on top of this cream. The second day of using this cream resulted my face to go scaly and flaky. It felt tight and itchy. Disappointed but im going to try again with moisturiser on top after my skin calms down

At first it worked as wonder. After a week I broke out but decided to continue using it to see if it would go away. After a month I had such bad acne that I had to stop. Hopefully works for others, but sadly didn't on my blemish prone skin.

This product was to strong for my skin, so I've had to stop using it.

I happened to have a series of bad breakout when started using this. I am not sure whether this is truly the cause or it is just a coincidence. Usually, it was easy for me to have break-out but my skin has settled down for a while. That's so bad since I had a high expectation that this will help me with old acne scars as someone claimed. I am still reluctant to try it again since those pimples on my face have not calmed down yet.

Initially I have used their 10% glycolic cream but it gave me burns so I purchased their 5% crwam. This 5% cream caused many cystic pimples all over my face. Even the old acne scars are not yet gone. Will not buy again
