    Excellent product so far; I’ve only been using for two weeks but have seen an overall improvement in skin tone plus I’m noticing less breakouts. I was using twice a day to see what kind of results I would get, but that proved to be a bit too much as some places began to exfoliate more than I wanted, so, I switched to using every other evening. Although, some mornings, I do mix with a little aloe vera gel from the Best Bath Store which contains manuka honey and makeup application is smoother than with the serum alone. The gel also keeps the serum from being so sticky when turning in for the night. Goes great under the tinted sunscreen!

    This is an excellent product for people who have sensitive skin, use retinol products, and/or those whose skin cannot handle a physical or chemical exfoliator – I am one of those people. I could never get the benefits that others got while using AHA or BHA products. And the difference that I saw in my skin after using this product for a couple of days was amazing. The clarity and texture of my congested skin dramatically improved and I had absolutely no irritation – a plus that someone with sensitive skin like me appreciates. I also love that they formulated this product with hyaluronic acid – genius! I use this along with the Phloretin CF and Retinol 0.5 and my skin has never looked better. I will now only use SkinCeuticals products 🙂
