This stuff really works. But you only need to use it once a week because it is really powerful. It is the best peel that I have tried. It also lifts and smooths. It works instantly. Lightly rub for 30 seconds, wash off and voila! It lets your follow up skin care products absorb very nicely as well. As a pricey bonus, it also works on all of your body parts to dramatically tighten and tone lax or crepe like skin (butt, legs, tummy, etc).
