People say I have many sensitivities, including reactions to various skin products. I'm pleased to report that I've had no such reaction with Vit A Plus Illuminating Masque. I purchased this product, along with another brand antioxidant treatment (SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic - also good), to begin working on my uneven skin tone and various age spots which began in my mid 40s. I'm now in my mid 50s. I've only been using the product twice a week for a few weeks but I am noticing subtle improvements (skin looks brighter) and I plan to continue. The packaging states that it is gentle enough for everyday use and I do believe that is true. The Masque is truly gentle, feels comforting, and results in a pleasant experience. The price point was such that it was worth trying and, thus far, I am pleased.

I was afraid to use anything with glycolic in it due to a bad breakout episode last year, however, after reading from a dermatologist that this would be good for my skin (to get rid of brown spots/acne scars) I decided to give it a go. I have been using this for about a month now, once a week and really love it. It is gentle, I have not experienced any irritation at all and it seems to be making my skin brighter by getting rid of any scars or brown spots. I will continue to use this once a week and definitely continue to purchase for the future.
It will not make your face break out even if you are acne prone. Is suitable for sensitive skin. After second use you should have a healthy glow and firmer skin (due to the glycolic/ exfoliating action). Might sting a bit on neck. Has pleasant lavender scent. I am early thirties and this is one of my favorites for 'turning back the clock'. I really enjoy this product. This is a wonderful brand for me so far, delivering visible results.
I use a gentle little disposable sponge from Sally's to remove masque (more exfoliation). From second use my skin is firmer, and brighter and more even. I also use Kinerase gentle wash for all skin types and Skinceuticals C E Ferulic both of which were recommended by my dermatologist. My current regimen has turned back the clock.
Since my pregnancy, I've been stuck with hyperpigmentation. I am one of the few whose brown spots stuck around afterwards...Anyway, this has been the most effective part of my skincare, along with simply staying out of the sun. The serum is only OK, the glycolic washes are OK. This stuff makes a visible difference if used a few times a week along with a good SPF 30 religiously applied each day.
