Direction of Use:

This is actually my first time using exfoliant with both AHA and BHA, and it's also my first time using Lactic Acid as I only used Glycolic acid before. Lactic Acid is actually suitable for the beginner or those with sensitive skin as the molecules are known to be bigger compared to glycolic acid which can penetrate deeper as the molecules are smaller.
How effective the exfoliant is I think not only depends on the concentration of the exfoliant, but it also depends on the formulation too. Because from my experience, I have tried different toners with similar % of exfoliant but some work better compared to others.
This tonique is hydrating enough but I'm not into the scent, the Jasmine scent is strong enough mixed with AHA sweet sour kind scent.
I didn't experience any stinging or purging. But since I have sensitive skin, I still experience redness. I noticed some difference when I used AHA BHA toner, like there're excessive sebum and open pores on the day after I used this Tonique. After the next day, it turned out my pores are less visible. I noticed the improvements such as lesser blackhead, tight pores and better skin texture.
I feel glad that Something Else has come out with this product as not many local brands would come out with chemical exfoliant as their first product. It must be their biggest step in our local skincare industry.
