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.

      This lotion is the best for the body. Do not put it on your face and neck because it will break you out. Its a glycolic acid and it pulls all the impurities out from deep in the skin. The result is not pretty, however, for the body it will make your skin as smooth as butter. LOVE THIS!!!

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

          I usually apply this lotion on my back skin and it does its job perfectly on reducing my breakouts and redness on my back. For people who have combination skin, it may feel a little heavy when you use it in summer but quite ok in winter. However, the lotion absorbs very quickly so I guess it doesn't matter that much if it's a little greasy or something. I later purchased a serum with AHA from Paula's and that irritated horribly, so I guess I would continue to get this lotion as an essential item in my routine skin care. Highly recommend this lotion.

            I came back from a 6 month hiatus with severely damaged skin. Background: 45, smooth caramel skin, t-zone with no other issues. When I came back, I had blotchy, dull, old-looking skin when I had always been mistaken for 15 years younger. I went on a mission and discovered this. Honey...! Please invest. I did my research on chemical exfoliation and manual exfoliation and came up with this. I am not into vanity and changing my age but I wanted my skin back and this worked wonders. In conjunction with a good SPF 30 moisturizer, women of color, please try this to correct skin damage. Use as directed and be careful if you have sensitive skin.

            This product delivers quick results at an affordable price.
            I started using it about a week ago and can already see some improvements in my skin: pores are cleaner and appear smaller, skin is smoother, small wrinkles are starting to be less noticeable.
            It does sting just a bit when I first apply it (I have very sensitive skin) but other than that I haven't had any bad side effects like redness or peeling. Be sure to use sunscreen, though, as skin will be more susceptible to burn.
            I have used prescription creams (Differin and others) and many much more expensive skin care products in the past and this works as well, if not better, at a fraction of the cost.

                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.
