I received a .27 ounce amount of this product with one of the Sephora Favoite's collections. I have used this product on then off for a couple of weeks then consistently for at least two weeks at night. I personally do really like this serum, it has a nice feel to it, no fragrances, it absorbs into the skin quickly, it also seems to be keeping my skin fairly hydrated. I do have eczema on my face and even with this winter dryness it seems to be under control for the most part (just a little bit of roughness and discoloration). The packaging is nice looking and I think would look good sitting out on a vanity or dresser.
I do feel a little bit of tight-ness after putting this product on, I've also had it happen a few times that if my skin is already a little sensitive in an area (sometimes this happens when I'm removing makeup) and then I put this on it really will irritate the area and turn all red. I think this product works will for those with combination skin as it doesn't make my skin oily but also hydrates the dry areas.
I just cannot justify the $90 this product costs, even though I do feel a little goes a long way. I do like how it seems to be a cleaner product and if the cost was a little more reasonable (same amount for maybe around $50 I would continue to purchase and give 5 stars), but for the few times this has bothered my skin and for $90 I expect my eczema to be non-existent for me to spend that amount.
acid’s main benefit is that it exfoliates the skin so well. It’s a chemical exfoliate which will remove the skin’s top layer of dead cells give your skin a glow. They will reduce the look of fine lines wrinkles by plumping the skin help to prevent new ones from forming. It helps with texture by making the skin smoother. It will also help with uneven skin tone hyper-pigmentation. They can also help with pore size. I’ve had AMAZING results with this product! I’ve been using it
for a few months now have absolutely seem a major improvement in my skin. I’m just about to turn 30 so I have some lines on my forehead and fine lines around my eyes. I also have some texture and uneven skin tone. This product has truly helped to transform my skin. My lines on my forehead are greatly diminished. It’s helped with
congestion which has helped to reduce the appearance of my pores. My texture and tone is really improved. My makeup looks so much
better. I’ve actually had more than a few compliments on how great my skin has been looking! I don’t have really sensitive skin, but 12% AHA is a pretty high concentration so I started out slow. I started out using this every other night, then after two weeks I moved up to every night. My skin tolerated it very well and didn’t experience any sensitivity.
I highly recommend this product. I’m extremely happy with it. I will most definitely continue to repurchase. I only need one pump to cover my entire face and neck so a bottle will last a while. As I said, it’s pricey at $90 an ounce, but to me it's worth the money.
enter: the framboos glycolic night serum.
i purchased this serum during the VIB sale last fall. i decided to start using it after the clogged pores on my cheek got too bothersome, applying one pump every other night before my night cream. the first few days, i experienced a period of purging, which, for me, looks like clogged pores on the t-zone (aka my most consistent problem and problem area), and decided to take a break from the serum per some research i did during this period. i went back to using the daily peel for about a week before giving the serum another try. i've been using it for about 2-3 months now and my skin has never felt smoother and most importantly, the pores on my t-zone stay unclogged. the gel-like consistency sinks in almost immediately and a little tingling is normal.
TL;DR - purging with this product is normal and happens to some people upon first usage. if it is indeed purging rather than breaking out, i'd say push through it! nothing has ever made my skin so clear and chemical exfoliants truly work, at least for me.
The product has good ingredients not known to cause acne, however, I believe the ingredients caused irritation to my skin which then led to the formation of the blemishes. My sister had the same problem with this product as well. It definitely does what it says it does, really tightened the look of my skin, but just beware if you are prone to acne.
