Im an aesthetician and carry a dermatology product line that has a serum with 12% aha in it. I compared it to this product and i feel that it blew it away. I will be continuing my personal research & slowly phasing out the big dog. The cost of mine is almost $60. I am very pleaaed with this12% souffle' . I can actually feel it working. It stings at first but it mellows out. I use a retinol, low dose on my face once a week at night. And use this on all the other nights to speed the work of the retinol. And i also use it for day use and then an spf 30. Im very pleased and am telling my clients about it. I do facials, but im not going to rip off my customers. I like products that work quickly with overnight results. I got carded the other day buying wine! I bellieve in aging gracefully and slowing it down with attention, proper home skin care. I dont use botox, or any other injection type manipulations, lasers or surgeries. The studies iv read are basic, and still are effective today. Use A's when u can at night, use aha's 2x a day, use some form of vitamin C daily, and spf daily. I also like to use and try different eye creams & night creams to mix it up, that contain Ester C, DMAE & alpha lipoic ingredients, for firming, toning, & reversing damage, etc.

I've been using this product for over 2 weeks, so I think it's a bit early to see any major difference. I do, however, notice my skin is smoother and the pores do seem smaller, so considering the short amount of time, it's given me noticable results. I don't have any significant wrinkles other than maybe between the eyes on the nose bridge from scrunching my face too much as a youngster. I bought this in hopes of helping fade some acne marks and hyperpigmentation and I've tried numerous products with no results. I can't say I see much difference with that yet but I'm still hopeful. It does sting a bit, but I've not had any drying or peeling whatsoever. I think my skin is just used to using stronger products. A lot of products that say will cause peeling I never seemed to have that happen, which I wish would since that's how the skin exfoliates. One word of caution, don't use this product after you use hair remover, it will burn you skin and leave red marks. It healed quickly but probably wasn't a smart thing to do.

    Comments about Alpha Hydrox AHA Souffle 12% Glycolic AHA, 1.6 oz:

    I bought this product for my husband. I am still assessing the product. He has a lot of acne/pimples and so far it has done a great job of clear his skin. There is nothing else in his routine that has changed therefore my only logical conclusion is that the lotion is helping his skin get better. I have been looking for something easy enough for him to use and after seeing all the reviews I decided to give this lotion a try. And so far i am loving the changes to his skin. Lets hope it keeps getting better, i am keeping my fingers crossed :) This has been easy enough for him to use both morning and night. Oh and by the way my husband also likes the lotion :)

      Comments about Alpha Hydrox AHA Souffle 12% Glycolic AHA, 1.6 oz:

      I used to buy this at a national drugstore chain but they no longer sell it. I was so happy to find it here! This is a great product for skin cell turnover. It's gentle enough to use every night and I notice a difference if I go without it. It helps my skin stay clear, fresh looking and soft. I've used it for years and am still very pleased with it.

                Love the product in its entirety. Not that new package makes it look like a bargain basement cheep product I will forgo this and buy something that worthy of my using.

                      I've only been using this product for only a few weeks and I'm very happy with the results so far. It does not sting or irritate my skin. It does, however, make my face feel silky smooth and my pores are shrinking (yay)! I would have given this 5 stars but I'm still waiting on these sun spots to fade.

                        Pimples aren't cute, especially on someone in their late 20s/early 30s. My acne became worse as I aged and no reasonable product could improve it. Having become quite talented with make-up as a result, my focus moved to fine lines and wrinkles. After reading tons of reviews, I first ordered this product about a year ago. I have always used it in the morning after my shower and at night after I clean my face with astringent.

                        The only breakouts I have now are due to hormones and even then, it's only one or two pimples and they go away quickly. My face is smoother in general (no tiny, uneven bumps), smaller pores, finer lines and softer skin. After religiously using it since first ordering it, I ran out of product a few weeks ago and I'm still paying for it, however I've been using it again for less than a week and my skin has already improved. It's definitely a must have in my daily routine!

                        Side note: The product now comes in a tube.
