  1. Salicylic acid is really good for calming down irritated skin. That’s what it does, it doesn’t necessarily cure acne.
    What you can do after you finish this bottle, is use a much cheaper alternative.
    You can dissolve a tabled of aspirin into a few drops of water. After that you mix it with honey or yogurt and apply as a mask for 10 minutes or so. I used honey which has a hydrating effect as well and yogurt seemed to irritate my skin.
    Also if you want to try this don’t exfoliate before or after.
    I used this mask to calm down my skin a couple of times a week when I had severe acne and really red skin.

    1. Thanks very much Diana. The problem with this approach, from my understanding, is that the use of Aspirin in pill form as a cosmetic is quite risky, and whilst I know that quite a few people swear by it, it’s technically an uncontrolled dose which I personally think is not a good idea as you don’t know how much your skin is absorbing. At least using a pre-formulated treatment guarantees that these sort of issues have already been tested. Thanks very much for the tip though! xx

  2. Thanks for blogging about this particular brand (I havent seen it on any other blogs) I have ordered a couple of products from them as although I have used the acid marks with these ingrediants I like the idea of a milder concentrate that I can use everyday. I am VERY prone to spots along the jawline so this was one of the products I ordered.

    1. Hi Jessica,

      That’s exactly where I get the spots too; not fun! I’m definitely a big fan of both this and the Citric Acid as I do believe they’ve made a huge difference to my skin without drying it out. If you have the time, I’d love to hear what you think when your products arrive xx
