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.

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

    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've tried using this product religiously to minimize some acne scars left on my shoulders but it hasn't really done anything. I'm a little disappointed, maybe I'm not using it right?

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

        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 have been using AHA Enhanced 10% Lotion for a year now and am very happy with the results...especially how soft my skin is! I use it daily on face, hands, arms, and feet with great results! Try this on your feet every night.

              I use Alpha Hydrox twice a day. I felt the difference in the texture of my skin the very next day! My pores seemed to have gotten smaller and my skin felt smoother than usual. 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.

                    It's too early to know how much this lotion will impact small wrinkles. I'm hopeful. It tingles a bit when applied.

                    I use this cream every night after I wash my face. Nothing else I've used manages my extremely dry flaky combo-skin like this cream. It does sting slightly but makes my skin feel and look smooth. I would not recommend this for someone with extremely sensitive skin though.
