Directions from packaging:

After cleansing skin remove a single presoaked pad from the jar and insert fingers into the pocket for easier handling. Gently swipe across face and neck, AVOIDING THE EYE AREA. A tingling sensation and/or some redness is normal; that means it’s working! Too much tingling, redness or experiencing sensitivity? Discard pad, rinse off face with water and pat dry. Otherwise, allow formula to fully absorb before following with moisturizer. Use once per week at night. Note: Test liquid formula on a small patch of skin inside the elbow for 60 seconds prior to use on face. Discontinue use if you experience irritation, redness or discomfort. Use only as directed. Avoid contact with the eyes.

Warnings from packaging:

IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE OR IRRITATED SKIN, THIS ISN’T THE TREATMENT FOR YOU. DO NOT USE IN COMBINATION WITH ANY OTHER SCRUBS OR ANY OTHER SKINCARE PRODUCTS WITH ACIDS.
