How does it smell? It definitely has a distinctive scent, I think it the ginseng

How does it feel? It’s a very light, liquid that is easy to move around the face

Cost? £18 for 250 ml

How long did I test for? 2 Years. I know this is a bit late

What I liked? I like that it works, it is really a great idea. The glycolic acid removes excess dirt from my skin like nothing else and I never realised how badly I had been exfoliating before I used this. I only realised because the products I had been using for so long somehow worked SO much better with this! I like the ginseng because it offers the calm effect that you may need when using an acid. It is so comfortable to use. It really is an essential product in my opinion that I think everyone should have in their kit.

What I disliked? I don’t really have a dislike more like a warning. I think at one stage I was over doing it with its use and my skin became very sensitive. I would recommend using it every other day.

Would I buy again? I already have at least 3 times!
