FAQ's Succinic Acid Blemish Treatment

HOW OFTEN SHALL I USE IT?

 It can be applied up to three times daily on the areas required. 


CAN I USE IT ON MY BODY?

Yes, you can use it anywhere you experience blemishes.


WHAT CAN I LAYER IT WITH?

If using after other actives such as exfoliating acids, Retinol, Vitamin c, Niacinamide, we'd suggest to avoid applying these on the areas you wish to spot treat. 


WHY IS IT GREEN? 

The colour is obtained from a natural chlorophyll derived plant pigment. Due to the different weather conditions and seasons the plant is exposed to, the shade of the product formula you use may vary in brightness so it will change from production run to production run


WANTING CLEARER SKIN?

Cleanse with Salicylic Acid Cleanser in the AM or PM and follow with Hyaluronic Acid for hydration which is essential for heathy skin. Follow with applying Succinic Acid Treatment to the blemish affected areas up to three times a day until the blemish is gone.


HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?

Products using retinol can take up to six weeks to show results. This is how long it takes for your skin cells to turnover. Consistency is key, so apply regularly even if you’re not seeing the effects straight away. It can be very tempting to increase use of some products to try and see quicker results, don\'t overdo it though. More is not necessarily more, and overuse can cause irritation and sensitivity.


IS THIS PRODUCT PREGNANCY SAFE? 

We do not recommend this product if pregnant or breastfeeding, consult your doctor before use.


IS THIS PRODUCT VEGAN?

Yes! This product contains no animal derivatives and is now certified by The Vegan Society.


WHAT IS THE PH LEVEL OF THIS PRODUCT?

PH Level 5.0 -6.0

Love/Hate Relationship

I feel like this does work well to shrink breakouts, but MAN… It smells BAD. When I read that sulphur was an ingredient, I wondered what that would mean for smell, and it’s everything I worried about! I do use it as a spot treatment when I have outbreaks, but I can’t put it on larger areas because the smell drives me crazy and doesn’t seem to go away until it’s washed off.

Not great,not bad

I feel like it doesn't do much for my acne, but it might work better for people with mild breakouts and pimples.I do appreciate that it is not drying to my skin.

careful of adverse reaction

I used it today and like the way it acted on my blemishes - it’s like it made the less painful. But I had quite a severe reaction with almost instant headache and difficulty breathing. Symptoms still haven’t gone away completely and feel a tightness in my chest. Use with caution.

love!

I've been looking for a good treatment to use on breakouts, and this has been my go-to! My skin used to have so many pimples that just wouldn't go away, but now it is smooth and the green tint helps fade redness too!

it’s a miracle!

although I mean in my early 30’s I still struggle with a lot of breakouts. I apply this at the end of my skincare routine at night to keep my new pimples in check. I don’t go a single day without this. Helps curbing my breakout.

Meh

It’s not a bad product but the results aren’t as quick as other products you can use. I absolutely love this company and usually get amazing results. But it does help, just slowly and also it had a good price for what it is.
