Alpha Hydrox AHA Souffle 12% Glycolic AHA 1.6 oz (45 g)

our price: $15.49$9.68 / oz

Alpha Hydrox® is changing to Alpha™ Skin Care, same great products with new names. Why would we change the name of our beloved Alpha Hydrox?  It’s really pretty simple. We’ve outgrown our name.  Alpha Hydrox began in 1992 with just two products. The name originated from the active ingredient, alpha hydroxy acid.  Alpha hydroxy acids or AHAs were new to skin care in the 1990’s.  The name was intended to help consumers know our products had this new ingredient.

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 repurchased the item when I ran out because I loved it for my skin. The tube that came now has a silver cap, my finished tube had a red one. I feelt like the formulation has changed, or something was off in consistency. A week of use and I start breaking out. Thankfully i still had an older tube laying around. I managed to squeeze out a bit of product from the older tube to compare it to the new one. And, the product was reformulated for sure!!! Older product had pearlescent sheen (kinda looked like prescription RetinA) and the new product is more translucent (looks like CeraVe lotion). I am disappointed because the original worked well for me. This new formulation is breaking me out. I wonder if anybody else noticed this.

        Excellent product! I have sensitive / combo skin and had been previously been using a 10% AHA. The 12 % Alpha Hydrox Souffle is oil free and exfoliates without irritation and the result is smoother / clearer skin.

            I use this nightly on problem areas and a richer moisturizer on more sensitive areas. Skin softens as lines and wrinkles fade.

                I really like this product, it absorbs quickly and does not bother my sensitive skin!! I used to like it better when it came in a jar rather than the tube it now is in. I can never get all the product out of the tube!!
