Help w/Salicylic Acid

Do I need to rinse it off before applying moisturizer?

The bottle says leave on for 1-3 minutes and rinse off. From reading posts it seems everyone is leaving it on longer though?!?!?

TIA!!!

    I think RCW mentioned that they probably do this to cover their butts.

    I don't rinse mine off before I apply the next product. I just make sure to wait the 30 minutes for it to neutralize.

    Skin cells can come off on the gauze pad, so it's not all necessarily dirt, although it can be some. I solve the problem by not using pads to apply my SA. I just put it directly on my face with a dropper. Less wastage that way too.

    If it's skin cells though, isn't that good to get off?

    How do you do it with a dropper, isn't it to runny for that?

    TIA!

    I just drop it from the bottle onto my fingers a couple drops at a time and apply.

    I put my pointer and middle finger together, so when it runs before I get it to my face, it lands in the crack and still makes it to my face.
