    Hi Guys!
    After one month of an unsuccessful exfoliation (no lighten, no flakes) I decided to stop last week and try again using another products.

    Here is my new regimen:

    Morning Face:

    *Wash face with a normal cleanser
    -Kojie San Soap (3 min and rinse)
    -Vitamin C Serum
    -Moisturize ( I need to search for some good moisturizer)
    -Sunblock (Burnout)


    Face Evening:

    -Kojie San Soap
    -GA 10%
    -Moisturize

    Body
    -Kojie San (again lol)
    -GA 10%
    - Moisturize (Shea butter w/ jojoba oil)


    LA Peel 40% (x1 per week)

    If somebody can give me some tips about more products, I will really appreciate.


    Goal:
    From:

    No way to do in a month (It will be my final goal)
    I am using skin smoothing body lotion by reversa (Canadian brand), I like to use before sleep cause I feel my skin SO soft when I wake up .

    I'm telling you.........the simplest and best moisturizer replacment is jojoba oil, or any carrier oil that works for you. After you apply your Vit C serum apply 1-2 drops of jojoba oil. It works even better if you apply it on damp skin. So in your body routine try applying your shea on damp skin, like straight out of the shower don't dry off completely, then apply your shea, moisture helps penetration plus you save on products this way as they absorb much easier.
