  • Prettygal - Warning-DONT ORDER THIS!! The bottle came to me nearly empty and it irritated my skin

    I wasn't too pleased with the results of the facial peeling product. My skin is very sensitive so maybe this is why it irritated my skin but I will never be purchasing or using this product again. Also I want to say I used this product twice and the bottle is already empty which made me realize that it was never full to begin with. Not a happy customer.

    The item received is not in the box as seen when i ordered. The product itself are not sealed.. I wondered if insigde the product are legitimate minoxidil solution... So dissapointed again....
