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 really like this product. It took about two weeks to feel the actually results, though. Some reviews complained about skin irritation, my advice to you is to make sure you apply an additional moisturizer with sunscreen to avoid irritation.

        I have been using this product for years and it works wonderfully. Best over-the-counter product in its category at any price. I have been using this in the morning and a retinol at night and my skin is clear and wrinkle-free. I am often mistaken for much younger than my age.

            I have actually written a review about this on my blog BlueArcEnCiel, do check it if you'd like.
            Its such a wonderful product that surprises your skin all the way. You expect it to be a greasy formulation, but its creamy yet light weight. Great for oily skin since its oil-free and does not irritate sensitive skin since it is fragrance-free. I noticed a result after the first use itself. My skin was hydrated, supple and soft. My skin loves it. I have used it for almost a year now and will continue to use it every night without fail. At this price point, its a great buy.

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

              I am in my mid 50s and use this at night. It is thicker than a serum and moisturizes my skin for overnight. I believe it is improving the tone and appearance of my skin. Fine lines seem to be diminished and I am happy with the results. It does not clog my pores like some moisturizers. There is a definite tingle when I use it, so I don't think it would be good for sensitive skin.

                    I thought they stopped making this cream (the 12%) until I searched on drugstore. com and found it again. I bought two just in case I can't find it again in the future. I do switch every few days to Neutrogena and I love Bobby Brown Eye Cream.
