It helped me, and was a fairly good substiture for BP, but I would not describe the improvement as dramatic at all. Try it; just don't expect miracles.

Be very careful. It is easy to burn your skin with high concentrations.

It will do quite a bit for redmarks, and will help inflammation as well. But it may also cause your skin to peel, and be careful about it contacting currently bleeding or raw zits.

Oh, it was hard to keep from screaming, it stung so much. But I'll say this -- it's hell on wheels to death marks! And thus, I rubbed some of the 50% serum on my skin just a few hours ago tonight. ((grin))

Um, "red marks." Not "death marks." Though "death marks" fits.

so uh... whats a "death mark"?? (i'm assuming its an acne mark for now...)

how long do you keep the acid on now that i'm sure you've found the right timing for it?
