Who It's For

See above - depends on the strength.  Some with sensitive skin will still get irritated even with the 10% so try cautiously at first if you are.  Unscented. 

Dr. Irwin's Product Review

Glycolic creams are still an excellent way to achieve results ........and especially if you consider their price point, which is  lower than other anti-aging products and some acne products.  The trick is to get a good formulation and know how to use them. Start with the 10% and work up slowly.

10% -  helps with sun damage on the neck and chest, great for more sensitive skin, with acne especially on other acne meds, and I use at night once a week or so as a break from retinoids

15%  -  See above, If you have no problems with the 10%, try going up to this.  Also, excellent for dry areas on the body like the lower legs. 

20%  -  If you have very oily skin, this may be the right one for you.  This also works super well for men who get the ingrown hairs with shaving (use nightly - NOT after shaving).  Great on the body (not for neck and chest in women) for those extra dry areas.

How to Use

Generally start lower and work up.

SkinTour's Philosophy:
Skincare is your best
investment
One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
