    I bought this product to help reduce dark pigmentation and even out skin tone. This has helped with both those things and also helps to prevent breakouts. It really helps with exfoliation. I also bought Ambi Skin Discoloration Fade cream for dark spots and use it in combination with this so it's hard to say how much impact each product individually has had on the problem, but in combination the difference was noticable right away.

    I have combination skin which is a little bit oily in the T-Zone but haven't had breakouts since my teens (now in my late 20s). I tried this product to brighten up the skin tone and to get rid of some of the milia on my face caused by the richer skin care products from Estee Lauder.

    I followed the instructions by applying once daily (at night) and rinsing off after 10 minutes. When the product first goes on the skin, the skin does feel tighter and cleaner. However, by the second day, my face began breaking out with small bumpy pimples on the forehead, the cheekbone area, and along the jaws.

    After some research on the internet, I thought this breakout was normal "purging" period that should go away once the skin adapts to the product, so I continued using it. However, the situation only worsened. First, the pimples didn't go away. Second, my face itched constantly during the day. Third, the skin on my nose turned red and started bleeding (I had stopped putting the product on my nose as soon as it turned red but it still got worse). Blisters appeare don my lips (I don't use the product on my lips) and other area of my face began turning red as well.

    By this point (a week later), I'm very skeptical of the so-called purging claim and stopped using the product. It's been three days and the symptoms only improved slightly. My face is now covered in pimples, my nose and cheeks are red, and the whole thing just itches like crazy.

    Judging by the number of raving reviews this product receives, it must be doing something right for some people. Just be careful and maybe do a skin test before putting it on your face. It's very harsh and hopefully the damages are not permanent.

              African American Women -- this is THE TICKET! I have been using this product for several years... one bottle lasts for many months! I wake up with a pimple, and this does the trick on each spot. No more spots, no burning, no bumps! I have had combination skin with fine bumps/some breakouts for years... this product helps manage all this. I have tried many other potions and products, but this is the only one I can use under make-up with no issue. My skin is not 'bad', but this glycolic gel makes it BEAUTIFUL. This is the only thing I rely on when I have a special meeting or event. I am in my 40s now, and don't have any connection to the manufacturers -- so this is nothing but a consumer endorsement. After years of use... no one believes I am 44 -- I look 34!

                    I have battled melasma (hyperpigmentation) for about a decade. I'm now 43. I've used prescription Differin and hydroquinone, OTC fade creams, highest sunblocks I can find. Of course, my pregnancies made it worse, but it started long before. Nothing worked. I have been using this gel for about two months, and I am absolutely astounded. All my melasma is disappearing. It's working slowly, but it's working very noticeably and during the height of my sun exposure (summertime in New Mexico). And it's brutal sun. I use an 85 SPF block and hats, but I still get dark patches everywhere. This stuff is fading it all away. I'm usually sensitive to a lot of moisturizers, blocks and makeup, but I've had no problem using this gel. I bought it for my mom and sister too!

                    I love that this product is not too drying, is easy to apply (no waste) and really does help clear your skin. I've used MD Forte products and I prefer this. I don't want a PEEL, I just want a clearer, smoother complexion and this does it well with regular use.

                    I'm 18 and have had acne since I was 12. This is the first thing out of hundreds spent that actually worked. For the first time, I really don't have acne. A few little ones, but I have not gotten a big, painful pimple since the first day I used this 5 weeks ago. I was concerned for the first week because I got all these white heads, but they were tiny and went away in a day. I guess it was just my skin purging. Also my scars are diminished and my face looks brighter. This is highly recommended. And I never rinsed it off for the first two weeks FYI. And I have pretty sensitive skin. This never irritated me.

                    I agree with another review. This stuff just seemed like really expensive water. The consistency is very watery and it seems like you have to use a bunch to get it on your skin thus it doesn't last long. I didn't have any difference in my skin using this compared to other glycolic products I've used.
