Bought @ Shopper's Drug Mart Size: 225 ml Pro's Vs. Cons? ------------------------ the pro's mostly outweigh the cons, helps clear acne and complexion due to the lactic acid. AHA + Moisturizer combination clears any flaking. feels greasy when applying, however it drys nicely, yet a tad shiny afterwards. Bottle could be better, such as a pump vs. squeeze. has a slight smell which i dont mind. its relatively cheap for the amount you get! has caused some minor redness for first weak or so while the skin adjusts. texture is a bit thick however add a little water , mix in hands, and its good to go. Final Judgement: im willing to put up with the side effects for clear and flake free skin. I use BP, this aint nothing compared to THAT!
