it's £40 at boots so still a bargain on amazon

is it worth it, really? I've been using RoC retinox stuff for a couple of weeks and my skin is SHIT - assumed it was the retin-A stuff dragging all the crap out but I look dreadful and am getting desperate

I have had spots that turn into big blemishes
and take ages to heal

Does it moisturise as well?

My skin sounds like yours and I'd love to look all dewy and new!

I use the avon one and it does make your skin more sun sensitive but it WORKS!

I've got two alternative recommendations for you for anyone who wants a peel to their face.

1. rub a slice of lemon over your face and leave for a few minutes before rinsing off with cool water. The effect is unbelievably smooth skin. Try it, go on.

2. Origins Modern Friction face scrub is also amazing for this, leave it on your face for 10 minutes. Not for the sensitive of skin btw.

Interested to know if anyone tries the lemon thing.
