So here's the thing....For years I have used a Vit-C line of products just because.     When I started on this Skin Care Journey I continued with Vit C products. There was a very noticeable change, but I attributed that to the exfoliating, KS soap, LA peels and lotion, and Nadinola.
Recently I stopped the C-Serum because I was using a Timed Release Retinol treatment day and night, but did not resume Vit C when I stopped that treatment.
I noticed a difference in the appearance of my skin but could not figure what was wrong.
Started back religiously with the KS soap, LA peels, but my facial skin never quite 'came back' until I started back using Vit-C Serum.
After just one use the difference was visually noticable .
I will not be without using Vit C on my Face, Neck and Decolette again...It has proven itself

I have been off my skin care routine for some time. I do some things, but not the regimen I had been doing earlier.
I returned the Retinol Time Release system after 2-weeks because it did not enhance what I was already doing, but I did not go back to my Vit-C Serum. It has been about 2 months
I really need to mix some of that up because even though I have done a couple of peels lately, my skin still appears a little dull....Not as vibrant as it was.

No signs of peeling yet

No noticeable changes except a lot of sloughing when I applied moisturizer. Did use Sea Salt Soap on my face this morning.

So, this peel was definitely different. My face still, after 24 hours feels 'tight' and has a dry shine. No overt signs if irritation or evidence of PIH .   
Have not used soap on my face yet, but continue to apply AVG, Cortisone cream, and Coconut Oil.
Anxious to see what happens

So I did a 40% LA peel on my face. It's a little stronger than I had been using, tolerated for 3 mins then applied Cortisone cream.

I hope my Nadinola was legit since I purchased from Walgreens

I have been using MSM powder for quite a while, hard to say whether or not it has really worked for me. Originally purchased as part of Hair regimen, then found out it may have some benefits for the skin.
With the other things I have been using on my skin, it's have to give credit to any one thing. But I will continue to use it.

I still need to purchase those KITs, I have heard wonderful things about them

Be careful with Nadinola. The fake Nadinola causes wrinkles and may cause dark spots. I didn't read this thread but just wanted to say that MSM works for dark spots it even cleared scars from a bad burned I received. It cleard my my face within a couple days of taking it. That along with just exfoliating my skin with just plain water and a towel before actually washing it.
