Not sure

Not sure about this product. I have used it twice in 2 months. It has inflamed my skin both times. I was careless the first time and it took a month for my face to recover. It did eventually peel and looked better. The second time I did the sandwich method but I am still dealing with a very red face. I will be happy when my face gets acclimated to it but it is very hard to like at this point.

So smooth

I have skin that can be sensitive but boy do I love this product! It’s newer to me so only using twice a week but my skin feels so soft after applying it. Be cautious but don’t be afraid.

When they say, use once a week, for the first week or two, do that. Once you see the results of the cream, you’ll be in love! It’s definitely a product that you don’t have to wait too long to see initial results.

Go slow with this one to avoid irritation. I just started on this but i can already feel my skin soften. The recovery cream works great with this

Start slow

This works great. Make sure you start out slow to cause no reaction before you continue. I love the feel this one gives
