Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.Smooth, radiant and even skin! It’s awesome!I've must read the 1 review ,this is after I have bought and used the product, the wrong way round I know. I love it, my skin feels softer and my moisturiser seems to be absorbed more effectively afterwards.
It really demonstrates how different our reactions can be. When I tried the BHA I got itchy,tight feeling skin and had tiny bumps all over my face and neck. It took a few weeks for it to calm down.I've must read the 1 review ,this is after I have bought and used the product, the wrong way round I know.

It really demonstrates how different our reactions can be. When I tried the BHA I got itchy, tight feeling skin and had tiny bumps all over my face and neck. It took a few weeks for it to calm down.I got this as an entry-level, lower-strength AHA to start with, which I alternate with a BHA to get the best of both types of exfoliant action, as I have some normal to dry areas, particularly on the cheeks. My skin is in much better condition overall since I started using this, with an end to the areas of dry flakiness. But the big caveat is that when I put this on, it really stings like the dickens - it feels like salt rubbed into a cut - and this has not changed with extended use. It also reddens my skin temporarily - but this does calm down after about 30 minutes. I find a BHA a much gentler type of exfoliant.
What are the key ingredients?
Can help shed dead skin cells to renew skin’s surface, visibly softening signs of ageing, particularly from sun damage. Can act as a water-binding agent.
Sunburn Alert: This product contains an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. As with all cosmetics, avoid direct contact with the eyes.

Good to know before you start:
This product is an exfoliant and your skin has to get used to it. Build up use from once a fortnight to 1 to 2 times per day. It may take some trial and error to see what is the best frequency for your skin.
During the day, always use a moisturiser with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater. Your skin will in fact be slightly more sensitive to sunlight when using an exfoliant, so the chance of sunburn and sun damage is slightly higher.
I have dry but sensitive skin. Can I use this AHA exfoliant?
If you have sensitive skin, we generally recommend choosing a BHA exfoliant. This is because a BHA also has soothing and anti-inflammatory properties, which are beneficial for dry, sensitive skin.

Rich milky toner soothes and replenishes ultra-dry, flaky skin.
