    Agree with others that you need to gradually use this product until your skin is used to it. I use maybe once a week because it makes my skin flake really bad. I feel like I should use it more often but I don’t like the flaky skin. It does seem to be lifting my dark spots too! I use the recommended product of Hydration Booster as well and it helps!
