My Thoughts: I like this exfoliator and regard it as a second toner in my skin care routine. It is very mild and non-irritating and even those with sensitive skin will be able to use it with no issues. I had a few dry patches (winter induce skin issue). I use this at night as part of my East-meets-West skin care routine. BHA is now more commonly used in many non-acne products as it is very effecting in reducing wrinkles and improving the texture of aging skin. I will continue to use this more or less until it is finished to truly access the results but so far no issues and my skin continues to improve daily.
