My Review: I love how easy this product is to use, especially when compared to other home peels. I used it in place of toner, since it definitely removed any last traces of makeup or dead skin cells. One thing I noticed immediately is how fresh and clean my skin felt after using this. It also felt instantly smoother, and the texture felt and looked better. After a few days, I noticed that my skin looked fresher, brighter, and clearer, and my skin tone more even. Love that, especially with so little effort. Post-pregnancy, I plan on trying this again when I'm doing a series of facial peels, since it's supposed to enhance the effects of the peel.
Nancy's Review: I have been using these more like every other day. They really are great. Whenever I have a bad skin day, I use the two steps, and just like that my skin looks five years younger and much healthier. So then I feel okay about showing my skin : ). I think they also help keep you from breaking out.
