      Pharmaceutical grade exfoliation!

      This stuff is STRONG and it is the real deal for exfoliating. It works as well as many masks I’ve used for cleaning away dead skin and you can see and feel a difference right away. My skin immediately drank up my serums and creams and really looked so plump and fresh. If you have any irritated skin, or chapped lips, use with caution— as it can burn. I do have one patch of eczema on my finger and WOW this liquid ate away the dead and scaly skin so my treatments got right to the source. Love it, especially for the price—but use cautiously— it is definitely pharmaceutical grade. I am becoming increasingly obsessed with this entire line of products!!

      Gentle Exfoliation

      The most gentle glycolic acid liquid I've ever tried! I have gotten more dry skin as I've gotten older and so I had to stop using the glycolic acids I used to use but now I use this a couple times a week and my skin feels amazing.

      Great packaging!

      I really like how the bottle feels and how the product shakes out from the top. It's really great and I do think my skin looks better the next day. I use it with supercell and overnight I see results.

      My new go-to liquid exfoliant!

      I don't want to say anything bad about Paula's Choice because I still love it and I probably will still use the gel exfoliant from time to time but I am fully replacing my liquid exfoliants with MAKE. Its more gentle and nourishing to my skin while still giving me that exfoliation i want
