Yes! I have been using this for about a month and have noticed results. I have severe hyperpigementation on the sides of my face and tweezing and picking scars under my chin. This product has lightened these marks tremendously. It has also made my face brighter all over. I only use at night as it is strong. make sure you get the triple oxygen mask as well. P.S. use it on your hands! It will make them softer and more youthful. Please let me know your findings. I am in the market for a new moisturizer

I've been using peeling groovy for about a month, i have dark skin (example angela bassett) and i have definitely noticed a change, for the better. i called bliss to ask about that warning, and they told me that because this is an exfoliater, as the dead skin sloughs off, it may make your already dark spots appear darker until they start to fade--which they will. my dark spots are fading and my skin is looking great. i also use the bliss pore perfecting polish about three times a week and the steep clean mask once a week, which i think are all working in concert. additionally, i have added clinique even better moisturizer (it has sunscreen, which you need when using peeling groovy) and also works as a skin tone corrector, for the double whammy. hope this helps!

I am actually fair skinned, but I have freckles and it makes them not stand out so much. I imagine it will do to your skin what it does to the pigment in my freckles.....lighten it a little.

You can use Peeling Groovy twice a day, morning and evening, after cleansing and toning and prior to moisturizing. If you are using another fave treatment in the morning, you can use Peeling Groovy as your night time treatment.

You're right, the instructions are vague...but this is how you use it. After your evening facial cleasing routine, use the Peeling Groovy Serum- then let it dry on your face 3-5 minutes, follow up with your evening moisturizer. That's it! It's great stuff.

No, it's meant to be left on, like any other serum. I've only been using it at night because it's a bit much, so if it's too strong for your face, try only using it once a day.

I formerly used Bliss Sleeping Peel Serum and currently use Bliss Peeling Groovy. I apply this product nightly and my skin looks amazing and most importantly, free of breakouts. Not sure if the formula has changed; the consistency and fragrance are quite similar in my opinion. This product works better than anything my dermatologist has ever prescribed.

Question
Peeling Groovy & Eyes
Can this serum be safely used on the under eye area? I love this product, and would like to see if would have a positive effect on the fine lines around my eyes, however, I have heard that exfoliating the eye area is off limits. It seems, based of the product reviews, that many people have successfully used this product in the orbital area. my question is simply, should I? Is it safe? Thanks!

Why on earth wouldn't you exfoliate around your eyes? Even my doctor says to do this and when I have peels done they take it as close to my eyes as possible. It's the area most prone to dry lines and wrinkles. I've used this for years all around the eye area and it's the most gentle exfoliator I've used around the eyes. No rubbing or tugging delicate tissues. It's improved the eye area just like the rest of my face. (Listed in another review) I still use Aloette a few times a week, but this seems to help maintain the level of exfoliation til it's time to exfoliate again and then there's less for the Aloette to exfoliate. I use it sparingly around the eyes and I also close my eyes til it's soaked in a little so the vapors don't irritate my eyes.

The skin under the eyes is WAY too delicate to need exfoliation! Even if your eyes 'tolerate' it, don't do it. That extra stress is enough to cause damage.

I have applied this under the eyes. Once I applied it too close and some got into my eye and irritated it, but if I don't apply it right next to the eye, no problems. I put it under my eyes every night and like my results.

Yes. If you have very sensitive skin, use it on your inner elbow first. If there's no irritation it should be safe for you. As peels go this is a fairly gentle one, but any peel makes you more prone to burn so use a good SPF and moisturizer.

I don't see why not. I think you can definitely do that. I apply the serum, then I apply a Vitamin C serum and then a moisturizer and it totally works, you feel the skin REALLY hydrated.

I think you can use it twice a day if your skin can handle it. I have acne too and I found that once a day is good for me because I use a moisturizing cream with hyaluronic acid in too.

Use this product at night before going to bed. I wouldn't use it during the day if you are going to be outside because it doesn't have a sun screen. Just put it on at night, and your favorite moisturizer over top of it. During the day wear a good moisturizer with sunscreen.

Yes it will because it made my skin peel! I applied it @ night (burning sensation by the way at first) and not the morning after but the next day my upper lip and chin area was flaky. Only happens in the beginning but if your skin is already like that then use it every other day like I did.

You want to check any peel on your inner elbow before you put it on your face. If it doesn't show irritation overnight, use it on your face. This is a fairly mild peel, so you can wear it day or night. No matter when you use it, it can make you more likely to burn, so in daytime be sure to wear a good SPF moisturizer on top.

I personally went by what some of reviews stated, and then winged the rest on my own. My routine went like this...in the evening before bed, I washed my face with an exfoliating cleanser, then waited a few min. and applied Peeling Groovy to my entire face and neck. I did carefully apply it to my entire eye area, which did not burn, sting, or make my eyes water. After waiting a few more min., I then slathered my night cream on. Went to bed. In the morning I again used my exfoliating cleanser, then applied my moisturizer for the day. I found that I used very little make-up after using Peeling Groovy for about 2 weeks. My face just looked too stunning to need make-up! I lightly applied my Tarte Clean Slate Primer, eye make up, Clinique touch blush in Sweet Clover, subtle lip gloss and I was done! I am so in love with Bliss' Peeling Groovy.
