Rewarded Review

I used to use TO 7% glycolic acid for years, and it worked great for me, but with age, my skin got more dry and sensitive to acids, so I tried this essence and I am never going back, this is just great! It has 4% glycolic and 4% lactic acid which I find is much more suitable for dry and sensitive skin types, and this essence has a lot of soothing ingredients. I don't know if it is good for beginners in AHAs, my skin is very used to acids, but I guess if you don't have extremely sensitive skin, this can be a good introductory acid. Just don't go overboard with exfoliation, I still exfoliate only 2-3 times a week even after 10+ years of using AHA. Always do it at night, and wear your sunscreen during the day. Be patient, and after some time you will see great results with this product - brighter skin, dark spots faded, all the good stuff! Highly recommended 10/10

This has worked so well for my skin! I have normal to dry skin, and this does not dry my face out like salicylic acid products do. This has a high enough percentage of AHAs that it actually does something, but I'm not dried out. I use it around every other day.

This was my first chemical exfoliant. I chose this since it’s supposed to be gentle and great for beginners. And it is! Made my skin so smooth. No stinging or redness or irritation. I have dry skin and use this once a week. Will bump that up to twice a week in the next month.

I bought this months back but only recently had the courage to use an exfoliating essence. I am on my second week, using this at night twice a week. So far, it has been good. No irritation on my very sensitive skin and i could see micro peeling especially in the areas with much hyperpigmentation.

I have combination/sensitive skin and was afraid of trying AHAs. This is one of the first AHA/BHA products I tried to help with my white heads on the chin area and have been quite happy as my skin was able to tolerate it once a week. Will increase to twice a week later on.

No artificial smell, important for me as I’m sensitive to artificial fragrances. It doesn’t sting at all which is a pleasant surprise but still seems to work. I’ve tried a tiny bit on my teen’s pimple and she said there’s no burning sensation at all. Much less oil and clogging on my face which is great and what I had hoped for. This was after the first application. Great for new users of AHAs and those with sensitive skin.

I enjoy this product a lot. I have tried glycolic acid before but I seem to be a bit sensitive and everything I tried stung my face. This is perfect as it's mild yet effective for exfoliation. No burning sensation whatsoever. I use this once a week and another brands Bha twice . my face is clearing up and feels so much softer than before.

I used to use a stronger AHA product, but my skin was getting irritated and I realized that I needed to find a more moderate-strength AHA. I picked this one out because it's composed of both Glycolic (the more effective AHA) and Lactic (the more gentile AHA) acids. It also includes soothing/moisturizing ingredients like aloe and centella. Just like other AHA leave-on products that I've used, I feel that this resurfaces my skin and gives it a slightly softer, brighter surface in the morning. It has a gel-like texture and leaves my skin feeling a bit...oily? I know that there is actually no oil in the product, but the way it feels on my skin is shiny, slimy, hydrating. The shiny finish doesn't matter to be though, because this is a PM product. I use it at night once a week.

Another great product from Isntree. This brand truly doesnt disapoint and this product is no expection. I think this a great and very gentlt exfoliating essence that can be used even daily ( I only use this three times a week to make sure not to over do it). This essence has pretty much no scent and if feels like a very high quality formula. Truly love everything from this brand.

I am using tretinoin and like to use an exfoliating product once or twice a week. This one is very gentle, I feel like I could use it every day if needed. It works best for me if used twice in a row. I am used to higher % AHA products, so for me this 8% essence is perfect for daily maintenance on the nights I do not use tretinoin.
