I buy mine from the Crystal Court location. It's in Costa Mesa across from the Sephora at South Coast Plaza. There are technically two locations in South Coast Plaza Mall. One in the main mall and one on the Crystal Court side. I've never bought this product from the main mall side, but I believe they carry it there too.

That's odd. My local Sephora gave me a sample with no issues. It wasn't a standard "sample" from AmorePacific, but they were able to make one just for me...

If you have more than 100 points, you can get a deluxe sample of it online.

Hope this helps. It really is a great product!

This is in response to the Sephora staff member's statement above. I have never been given a sample in the store and trust me I have asked. I have been told that the stores do not keep samples on hand and I have never been offered a custom sample from a full size. There are many products that I would love to try before I buy and I never knew this was supposed to be available in the stores. I spend a lot of money at Sephora and I am rather upset to learn that staff members in the store should have offered me more assistance. This is why I stopped shopping in the stores and only buy online. I appreciate the samples I get from my online purchases. I just wish there was more of a variety online. I seem to see the same ones over and over. Also,only about 60% of the time I will receive the actual sample I add to my basket when I order. The rest of the time I get random samples that I never ordered and am not interested in.

Go to the store. In fact, when I went in today, to purchase the full bottle, there were deluxe samples available. At least at my store. Go in asap, and ask for the deluxe sample. If they don't have that, they will at least give you a smaller one. Sephora gives samples of virtually EVERYTHING you want. You can go in there and get like 5 + different samples if you want. :)

Samples are a great way to try new products & we include three free samples with every Sephora.com order. The sample selection is listed on our website and changes frequently, so check back often to see what we're offering. At this time we are unable to send custom samples from our warehouse. Another great way to try new products is to visit your local Sephora store. At the store, a Cast Member can make a tester for you of any products that we carry. They can also answer questions for you and make recommendations for other products. To find a store near you, check out our store locator. Thanks!

answer 1
I got a very generous sample as a 100-point VIB bonus, & there is NO "reservoir". If you turn the bottle upside down, then right side up, then open it, there will be no powder at all in the cap. After reading some of the answers to the question about how to dispense the product, I tried turning the bottle upside down & opening it while it was in that position. Big mistake! Powder all over the place. Fortunately, I had put a piece of clean printer paper under the bottle, so I was able to save almost of all of what I spilled. Don't know if the full size has some kind of reservoir, but the sample definitely did not. Having said that - the best way to use this very fine powder is (1) cleanse face with your usual cleanser, but do not dry your face completely (leave skin fairly damp); (2) dry your hands thoroughly; (3) with the bottle right side up, open it & tap a small amount (the size of a large pea works for me) into your hand & then (4) either add a drop or 2 of water to the powder in your hand, work into a light paste & then massage onto your face OR just apply the powder from your hand directly onto damp skin & then massage. All this sounds like more hassle than it really is - the whole process just takes a couple of minutes - & the product does leave skin soft & smooth without irritation. Plus the 100-point sample is incredibly generous - a little of this product goes a very long way.

A couple of tries will help you decide what works for you. A pea sized amount works for me. Add a bit more if that's not enough to spread over your entire face. It doesn't need an exact scientific measurement to work.

you turn the bottle upside down and it releases the amount into the cap, unscrew it while it's still upside down but for some reason it won't pour out of the bottle, then tilt the bottle back over and pour what is in the cap into your hand, it's the perfect amount every time!

I can't fully explain the system, but if you tip the bottle over with its cap on, the bottle automatically pours out only a small amount in to the cap. You take off the cap (with the bottle upside down) and pour whats in the cap into your hand. Nothing extra escapes the bottle when its open and upside down. And the little that is in the cap is plenty. A little goes a long way.

After removing the lid you simply turn the container upside down and a pre measured amount is placed into your hand. The amount that comes out does seem like much, however, once you add a few drops of water you have more than enough.

I don't remember if the product labeling indicates that you shouldn't use it every day, but there have been times (when I've been wearing more makeup than my usual routine) when I've felt like I needed extra cleansing. This is the only product I've used that is gentle enough to use every day! And, I think if you start, you'll find that after several days'/evenings' worth of use that you won't need to use it every day anymore. Hope that helps!

I liked the idea of a plant based powder cleanser for exfoliation and deep cleaning so I bought the Bare Minerals version. It arrived in a bottle that was only about 3/4 full. So I felt a little ripped off. I tried the cleanser and it smelled so much like actual mud/dirt that it made me naseaus. It also didn't seem to do anything. I returned it. I got a sample of the Amore Pacific treatment enzyme peel and I loved it! It doesn't take much to lather up, so even though it's expensive it will last. It also does just what I wanted. It exfoliates and deep cleans but it's super gentle-no scratchy anything. It also doesn't make your skin feel dried out afterwards, just clean and smooth. I just bought the full size bottle. Hope that helps!

Hi, I have used both and I definitely like the bare minerals better, the Amore Pacific was great at first but then it started giving me whiteheads all over my face and they are very hard to get rid of, I have one on my eyelid that I have had for months and cant get rid of and I know its from the AP enzyme peel cause its the only thing I used to wash my face that was different. So I say stay with what u know is safe. These whiteheads I got from AP are extremely hard to get rid of. I have never had any problems with using any BE products, even with my clarisonic. Be careful using this enzyme peel. Others have had problems with it too. btw I have oily/combo skin, fair skin and am 42. Hope this helps.

I feel like the enzyme peel is so different than a 'cleanser' because it does much more than just cleanse the skin: it's cleansing to a different degree with exfoliation and deep pore cleansing rather than just makeup and oil removal. I find Bare Minerals products are heavier than the AmorePacific products. However, I used the treament peel only every other day and used other cleansers in between since it is a 'treatment'. I guess I would recommend the treament as a supplement to your favorite cleanser. I feel like AmorePacific is a better investment in a face product than the Bare Minerals Rare Minerals cleanser.

I really love this product and I hope that you do too. I have oily, acne prone skin and as a result, have many dark spots from my acne.

I've been using the Enzyme Peel from AmorPacific for two weeks and it has lightened most of my acne scars, of course the darker ones are going to take a little longer to lighten...

What I also like about this product is that its not abrasive, it doesn't overly dry out my skin and it leaves it feeling soft and smooth. It also has a nice smell. Even if its a little pricey, I feel that this product will last you a long time! As I mentioned before, I've been using it for two weeks, and I haven't even used a 1/4 of the bottle yet.

I hope this was helpful and that you enjoy the product too. Aloha!

PS-Don't forget to use sunscreen! The sunscreen from this line is also good. It penetrates all 3 layers of skin and doesn't leave a oily feeling behind.

I think this is a good product for you if reducing the appearance of blemishes and clearing pores is your priority. but as I have included in the review of this product, it is really more of a cleanser than an intensive peel, by that, I am referring to its texture. it's got a cleanser type of foaming action going on when you lather it with water. I myself am dealing with the same problems as you do, and I know that this "peel" alone isn't going to do the work. I have a serum to correct my redness, and also some alpha hydroxy cream to expediate my skin's turnover. Then during the day, I use sunscreen to prevent further redness from occurring. So you do want to consider including more products to help your skinoverall.

I would definitely say this product works well for those types of issues. Unfortunately as an Adult I still get Deep Pimples (Cysts) and infected in-grown hairs as a result of a condition called Chronic Folliculitis which causes the body to mistake some of the hairs as foreign objects and attack them which causes minor Infections (Pimples). Using this peel in combination with Philosophy's Purity Made Simple wash has created quite a drastic difference in my complexion.

I use this as a daily wash in the evenings to remove all my make-up. I have some pretty serious acne scars and I see a difference in using this product. While I wouldn't say it lightens the skin, it makes my skin super soft and smooth. I have a glow that I haven't experienced with other products. It definitely helps with any breakouts, since the gentle exfoliation removes the excess dead skin cells like nothing else! Highly recommended...
