I think it is supposed to bring out the worst in your skin as it breaks down dead skin cells. I’d stick with it for a few weeks. If you’re looking for something stronger I’d recommend Sunday Riley Good Genes, you can get a sample from any Space NK.
I have combination skin, my skin is all sorts from oily, to dry to dehydrated, but the skincare has helped, I use the elemis or Emma hardie cleansing balm and the Liz earle skin repair moisturiser, for a face mask I use the Himalayan charcoal one from The Body shop, it's great.
I found it did nothing - I may as well use water. Pixi Glow tonic worked where this didn't but I've switched to Salicylic Acid from The Ordinary as a treatment for my spotty face and it worked after two treatments! I could feel it working straight away. I now use loads of their products and can feel them working away and they are dirt cheap.
I hate this stuff! I didn't realise it was full of alcohol when I bought it (why didn't I check?!!). I don't think anyone with wrinkles should put a product with alcohol on their skin. I made an expensive mistake.
I think its fantastic stuff. My skin feels lovely after it. I use it around twice a week and use Retin A every second night. The cotton pad need to be quite wet and I dab it on rather than wipe it over the skin.
