I LOVED the peel the first week.. It burned when I applied it but when I used a fan it helped alot. My skin flaked after 2 days and underneath it looked great. Not sure about long terms effects but it feels exactly like some of the spa peels i had done in the past, although I do not remember which ones I tried. I would say its an overall good product but don't leave it on long unless you want your skin to peel in public. I found out the hard way. Not that big of a deal but sucks going out and try to cover it up.
