You don't use 30% on a test "spot" (that is not a spot, it's a huge area)! You start with 12-15%. IT's like you didn't even read the FAQ - Acid peel section (there is a link with a mega post 10 pages). You have put a "strong" acid on your face this could take 3 weeks to 3+ months to heal. Goto the emergency or dermatologist if that is a problem for you.

I could take 3 months of healing. Occlude it with Vaseline, or a healing ointment. Honey and Aloe is also healing. It will take a long time.

Hey Frenchscar, 

Don't stress. This happened to me when I got mine professionally done. 

The darkened part SHOULD peel soon - give it a week or so. 

In the meantime, keep it moisturised with a gentle moisturiser or Vaseline. 

Moisturise it frequently throughout the day. I'm positive that is going to peel off - it just happened to me last year - trust. 

Don't stress.
