    I have always had keratosis pilaris on my upper arms, but over the past year or so it has spread to my face. Having dry skin, I tried some products with AHA/glycolic acid but they didn’t seem to make much of a difference. After switching to this product and using it daily, the KP has almost cleared completely from my face and my skin feels so much smoother, and looks brighter. This, along with the Skin Functional Vitamin C have become two staples in my skincare routine.

    Good day, As discussed with you over instagram, we do not delete any reviews and no one in the team is instructed or mandated to do so. SKIN functional is a brand of integrity and we strive to uphold this value in everything we do. As mentioned to you yesterday, we are busy with an investigation to find out what happened. As per the screenshot sent to you, your first bad review is still visible on our side.

    Amazing product, but having a 5 star rating on a product is more important to the Skin Functional team than having honest and unique reviews. I initially had a bad experience with the product but decided to start using it again recently after not touching it for months, but my “bad” review was deleted. Just as I was going to come update my review and give everyone the thumbs up on this product, I realised my initial review was deleted. I’m so disappointed in this brand as I was really rooting for it.
