Even after my disappointing experience with Paula's Choice AHA lotion (reviewed here), I still wanted to add an AHA product to my skincare routine to help even out hyperpigmentation and eliminate my whiteheads. After reading some online reviews I opted to try a Korean brand that's slowly becoming a dependable staple of my skincare collection. I first encountered Mizon for its eye creams (reviewed here and here) but have happily had a chance to try many more of their products since. Roseroseshop is becoming my go-to retailer for its huge online inventory as well as current free shipping for all Mizon products (see image above).
My previous experience with the 5% AHA proved my skin isn't particular sensitive so I didn't feel shy about ordering a higher percent (8%). The dropper included with Mizon's AHA 8% Peeling Serum sealed the deal because my biggest complaint about the Paula's Choice lotion was its thick texture & slow absorption. My dry skin loves liquids/serums and soaks them up quickly, perfect for minimizing the time I spend on my lengthy and multi-layered skincare routine. Seeing the serum would really be a fluid was the main reason I chose this AHA product.
