Is the chemical peeling at home worth it? Which brand do you go for?

I’ve done the Dr. Dennis Gross daily peel (wipes) and it has done tremendous work for me.

It does get costly though so I tried the Ordinary AHA/BHA peel for $7 and that is also amazing. It comes in a dropper bottle and you need just enough to cover your face pink (it does sting) for 10 minutes and my skin feels amazing after and the next day. I do it twice a week and It’s helped my acne subside


I do at home Salicylic acid or lactic acid peels. Both are great. Salicylic i have to be careful because they can burn you easily. Lactic acid is a lighter peel but works too.

I just started doing them. Twice in the past 2 weeks. My skin hasn't peeled yet, but it does feel better. I'm not able to leave it on very long but the 2nd time was longer than the first.

I bought a kit glycolic acid from Planet Eden on Amazon. Came with the acid, cleanser, neutralizer, moisturizing cream, and a brush. So far I'm happy with it.

To the question about promotion, Deloitte Consulting leaders often say "you are not ready" even after being 2-3+ years with the firm. I also observed that not all leaders are willing to sponsor their team members. Not all leaders demonstrate genuine interest in sponsoring, coaching, and developing their staff. What would you advise in this situation - find a new sponsor/leader within Deloitte or look for new opportunities in the market?
