My skin is very dry now but I had horrible acne throughout high school and college. That was 10 years ago and now I'm left with deep ice pick scars. I'm trying this only twice a week along with Pixi by Petra Glow Tonic toner which also has glycolic acid. I don't use the toner on the days that I use the face wash. I've been using both for a month now and I can tell that my skin has been getting a bit smoother but it still has a long way to go. I personally don't care for the lemongrass type of scent but I'm sure others have no problem with it. Make sure you don't wash with this neat your eyes and rinse well.
