This is a chemical peel of come sort - it's not natural. In essence it looks easy and looks as though it's going to work.
I am a black woman and purchased this to get rid of spots and get an even skin tone.
What went wrong: I applied as instructed and left the eyes area. After I finished with the peel - 7 days later, everywhere else was VERY DARK except for the eye area. almost 6 weeks later I can see a clear line around my eyes - like a panda. My neck looks like I am wearing a scarve because it is so dark in comparison to my chest. I now wear a scarf to hide my neck and I don't go outside regularly because I am now 4 shades darker than before.
In hind sight I should have gone with natural peels from aveda or maybe the green peel, although slightly expensive at least it's safe.
If you do decide to purchase this product also make sure you use the normaliser in very small amounts because, although the bottle looks big from outside, it's actually small inside - it's shallow. So you could end up without normaliser.
Currently I am using other natural products in order to get my skin back to normal but it's difficult. As I mentioned, we are coming up to 6 weeks if not more and I look VERY VERY DARK. To give you a comparison, I think I have gone from gabrielle union to darker than wesley snipes.
Pain - It is VERY painful when you apply the peel. It stings and I had never experienced that much pain. It's definitely not for the faint hearted.
I have photos but I can't upload them now.
No I wouldn't. They were not helpful at all. Only when purchasing the product. Poor customer service after purchasing. Very rude and would never deal with them again.
