    Actually, I tried it behind the knee first. 24 hours. Then on jaw and in front of ear. 24 hours
    THEN on face, totally different reaction in only a few minutes! Not always foolproof.

    If it has healing properties I'm guessing you could use it after a peel? I only do Glycolic Peel so far. I just didn't know if I should put any oil on right away.
