So i've tried the AH Souffle, and it didn't work out for me. I believe AHA will help, but probably a lower percentage of glycolic acid would be better. I initially tried this on my face, and while the stinging is not as bad as the souffle, it didn't help treat/prevent my facial acne. Like the souffle, it did help reduce some blackheads.

I decided to stop using it on my face, but since I still have a lot left on the bottle, I thought that maybe my back will benefit from it. I have severe bacne, and i noticed that I didn't get any new pimple ever since i started using this. It made the skin feel smoother too. It's only been a month since i started using it, and i'm glad that i finally found something for my back (the skin there is also sensitive to benzoyl peroxide). Hopefully, it can help diminish the acne scars too.

Usage: after bath at night. Make sure to let it dry up first before covering up with a shirt.

A little of the product goes a long way, so I can stretch the lotion out for a long time.

    I have been using this for a few months with VERY SENSITIVE SKIN. I have noticed results on my forehead wrinkles alot. I also have roseca and very dry skin. It didn't make my roseca worse at all and my skin is very smooth!

          As a flight attendant, I use this product as an all over body lotion to combat the dry atmosphere of the aircraft cabin. It is the only product I have found to be so very effective for 18-20 hours on duty. I highly recommend it!!

          Comments about Alpha Hydrox AHA Enhanced Lotion, 6 fl oz:

          Love this lotion. I have mostly dry skin and it with almost any facial wash is great. I am prone to break outs and that has kept them at bay, made my sink more vibrant and soft and young looking. I actually got this to use the back of my thighs since I sit most of my work day and they become rough. I use it to keep the pores clear and my thighs smooth to touch. I usually put it on after my showers and then let it dry. It was noticable difference within a week as the husband actually commented on my skin and the feel of it. He was impressed and started to use it himself.

            I can't say enough about this miracle product. It works better than hundred dollar creams. And its high amount of glycolic acid is hard to find in a lotion without paying a ton of money. [$] and the bottle lasts me a whole year? I'm buying more!!!

                I used "Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Lotion" while overseas back in the mid 1990's and am glad to know where to get it now. When I put it on my face I really like the tingle, I know it's working! I avoid my eyes and lips, let it dry, then put sunscreen/moisturizer over it, starting with those two areas. It has a mild medicine-like but pleasant smell. I really like the cleanser and night cream I ordered, also. I can't think of anything negative to say about the "Alpha Hydrox" products.

                  My skin has become addicted to Alpha Hydroxy to the point that if I don't use it, my fine lines become apparent. Using AH on a consistent basis has made my skin look years younger than I am!

I also use a bit on my forearms and the lower part of my legs. The sun damage on my arms seems to be less noticeable. This is a great product!`

                        Finding a glycolic acid (best anti wrinkle acid) for a reasonable price in a 10% concentration is now possible. The smell is a bit chemically, but quickly fades away, and leaves my skin feeling soft and non-greasy. I am in my upper 40's, and love the way this product reduces age spots and wrinkles from my neck to my feet with daily use. I follow it up with a good sun screen to prevent sun burn and future wrinkles. Better than any expensive skin product I have ever tried.

                        Alpha Hydrox AHA Enhanced Lotion

                         – Do you want to keep your skin smooth, soft, and with less visible lines and wrinkles? You need Alpha Hydrox AHA Enhanced Lotion, which contains concentrated glycolic acid to reduce facial lines. This rich lotion also includes vitamin E to soothe and moisturize skin. Alpha Hydrox AHA Enhanced Lotion has been proven effective in reducing the appearance of various signs of aging.

                        Alpha Hydroxy Acids for Wrinkle Reduction



                        Alpha Hydrox AHA Enhanced Lotion contains 10% alpha hydroxy acids in the form of glycolic acid. At concentrations of 8% or higher, alpha hydroxy acids exfoliate the skin, sloughing off dead cells to unblock pores and reveal the healthy skin beneath. Alpha Hydrox AHA Enhanced Lotion has a pH of 4, which is the pH at which glycolic acid works most effectively. That means you get all the benefits of this revitalizing compound, including smoother, healthy, younger-looking skin.

                        How to Use Alpha Hydrox AHA Enhanced Lotion



                        To make the most of the alpha hydroxy acids in this lotion, start your daily skin care routine by gently cleansing your face. Apply Alpha Hydrox AHA Enhanced Lotion evenly to your face and neck to exfoliate the skin and soften wrinkles. You may feel a slight tingling sensation – this is normal. There is no need to rinse the lotion away; it will quickly absorb into the skin. Follow up with a rich moisturizer with added SPF to protect your skin against the sun during the day.

                        Specializing in AHAs



                        Alpha Hydrox products have been carefully designed to minimize the effects of aging on the skin and alpha hydroxy acids have been clinically proven to help soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Using this scientific research to create products that fully capture the benefits of these dermatologist-recommended compounds has resulted in highly effective formulations. All Alpha Hydrox skin care products are manufactured in Denver, Colorado and meet high quality standards.
