Alpha Hydrox Foaming Face Wash 6 fl oz (177 ml)

This wonderfully sudsy foaming cleanser gently but thoroughly removes every trace of dirt and makeup to leave skin refreshed and totally clean. It's soap-free, alcohol-free, and pH balanced, which means dry complexions can use it without any fear of stripping natural oils. Yet oily skin can also benefit, since this cool wash doesn't pack any of the pore-clogging moisturizers that can contribute to acne.

I've been using Alpha Hydrox products on and off since I first discovered the label in my early 20's (some umpteen years ago.) It's been hard to find OTC in my area going on a decade now, which accounts for the usually short "off" time in between uses, so I have to order it. That's a bit of a pain but well worth the effort.

Every morning, while in the shower, I wash my face with Alpha Hydrox Foaming Face Wash (a pea-sized drop in your hand, on a face brush, puff or washcloth is enough to do your whole face and neck so one bottle of this product will last you forever!) Sometimes I follow that up with a toner but not always (it depends, but when I do chose to use it, I like using Neutrogena Pore Refining Toner.) Then I tap on an all over eye product (DHC Eye Bright is a good one but so far it has not been made available from this site.) I follow that up with Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Lotion (also a fantastic product.) I finish off with Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock (anything over SPF 30 is a waste of time.) At night I wash my face with AH Foaming Face Wash, maybe use a toner (maybe not), tap on an eye product and finish up with AH Enhanced Lotion. AH also has a fantastic Night Replenishing Cream and Oxygenated Moisturizer .. either of which could be applied at night over the Enhanced Lotion.

I love AH and honestly don't know what I would do without their products!

If asked, the absolute best advice I could give is to 1) Educate yourself, research your products, read labels, and don't be afraid to mix and match, 2) Use SPF year 'round, and 3) Give Alpha Hydrox a chance.

I bought this cleanser because of all the great reviews and recommendation for combination skin. I started using this twice a day along with the oil free lotion in the morning and cream at night. After a week and a half my face started to develop a red bumpy rash all over my forehead and cheeks. I am not sure if it is the cleanser of the lotions but it is drying out my skin and causing an ugly irratation on my skin. I am now going to use it every other day with my cetaphil cream and cleanser and see if the red bumpy rash clears up. I would recommend using this every other day until you can see if your skin is sensetive to it.

    Comments about Alpha Hydrox Foaming Face Wash, 6 fl oz:

    I am very pleasantly surprised by this product! I've used expensive products for years and still struggled with adult acne. This product cleared my skin very quickly and it's a third of the cost of the other products I used to use. I've gotten so many compliments about my skin since using this. I use it with the toner, lotion and spot skin lightener. I'm African American and my skin is prone to scarring. The Alpha Hydroxy products have been great!

          I have extremely oily skin and this seems to helped cut down on the oil. It cleans really well and my face doesn't feel dried out afterwards. Love this stuff!

              This cleanser is gentle, oil-free, foaming, and really works to cleanse the face without drying or leaving a residue. I've used it for years, and it works just as well as the ones that cost twice as much. I have no complaints, and buy multiple bottles at a time. Even though I use high end toners, moisturizers, and cosmetics, this is still my favorite cleanser.

                I bought this product for years at my drugstore before it disappeared from the shelves. I was glad to find it here because it works on my sensitive skin without being too harsh. It sheds dry, dead cells, leaving my skin feeling really clean. I've had people comment on how good my skin looks after I've used it. I wouldn't suggest its use more than a couple of times a week, tops, if you have sensitive skin. And, I always follow up with a good moisturizer.

                  I wash my face and it takes all make-up off, including mascara. I love it! Afterwards I apply Alpha Hydrox Souffle, very moisturizing. I use it 3-4 nights per week. Otherwise I use the famous light green packaging soap and moisturizer. I recently saw a similar product on tv and it was a cream form and was $140.!!!!

                      I have been using proactive since maybe 2006 and everytime i try to use other face wash, I break out. This face wash doesn't make me break out. I'm so happy that i found this because it doesn't dry me out. The price is great too! my boyfriend uses it too and he likes it.
