I've used acids plenty in the past, both AHAs and BHAs, but unfortunately this formula was not for me. I have combination, acne-prone skin and was looking for something to help my closed comedones and hormonal breakouts. I wouldn't say my skin is overly sensitive, but I'm always cautious and introduce products slowly. I used it the first evening I got it and applied it lightly all over my face with a cotton pad, let it dry for about 10 minutes, and then followed up with a hydrating serum and moisturizer over the top. I skipped application the next day and just cleansed and moisturized as usual. When I woke up on the second morning after application, my skin was a flakey, patchy mess! I had so many dry spots both over active acne and around my nose, chin, and forehead. I have never experienced such intense irritation and dehydration from an acid before, let alone a gentle BHA and on the first use! I really had high hopes for this product thanks to all the wonderful reviews, but unfortunately this formulation was a disaster for my skin. I'm so thankful that I didn't try to apply two days in a row - so just be sure to introduce this slowly and be cautious of a delayed reaction like my skin had.
