I'm 36 and have suffered my share of acne and allergies. I've never used a shampoo/body cleanser on my face before because the skin on my face is t-zone oily with sensitive cheeks...well..until now. I only tried it on my face after reading the reviews on this product. (Btw, I love reading the reviews on drugstore.com...thanks all!). I find that most cleansing products don't do a good job of removing SPF; therefore I use a cleansing oil to remove the SPF first and then wash it off with this product in the shower...and it works great! I've used this at home but also think this would be great for travel because it cleans head to toe with AHA as an exfoliant to boot! Only thing is it's a bit pricey for an 8 oz bottle...but then again it does the job of 4 different products: shampoo, bodywash, facewash and exfoliant...AND it doesn't make me breakout. Also, my scalp doesn't feel oily the next day either...so I can skip a day of shampoo. However, must use SPF when using this product...which I absolutely hate but it's necessary. Wow, where was this when I was a teen.

Be careful with this product. I tried it three ways: as a shampoo, as a body wash, and as a face wash. Just so you don't think I'm inexperienced with AHA products, I had been using Alpha Hydrox Oil-Free Formula for over 10 years twice daily very successfully before trying to switch to this Aqua Glycolic product. I was using no other products which could have conflicted or reacted with this Aqua Glycolic wash.

I allowed the product to remain in contact with my scalp and skin for only 60 seconds per wash, then rinsed very thoroughly. For the first 10 days my skin became progressively tighter feeling. After that, it started to become extremely dry with a coarse leathery feel. This happened despite heavily moisturizing twice daily! My hair became knotted and frazzled. After 10 days, the leathery skin began to breakout horribly with acne that I had kept banished with my previous Alpha Hydrox Oil-Free Formula for over 10 years! The acne is severe now due to this product, despite my face being perfectly clear and makeup free when beginning this product.

After 3 weeks of discontinuing this product, the dryness is just starting to heal. However, I'm only about half-way improved regarding making the acne it caused to go away again. I'm facing months of red-marks due to this product causing an acne breakout. It took two hair cuts and daily heavy conditioning to remove the damage it inflicted on my hair.

This product is extremely harsh! The problem may or may not be related to the heavy and unappealing perfume they add to the product. I can use Alpha Hydrox Oil-Free Formula two times daily, heavily, with no bad reactions - but this Aqua Glycolic stuff is not even remotely useful. I have returned to my Alpha Hydrox and will never be swayed to test anything else again.

I can't imagine why this product could possibly be popular!

          This product was recommended to me by my dermatologist as a gentle, oil-removing facial wash. I have used the shampoo and body cleanser daily for many years and always have a clear complexion. Obtaining it became difficult after I moved away from my doctor, but am very pleased with its availability and price at drugstore.com!

            The shampoo is ok but not worth the price. [...] I will not be ordering this product again. If I can find it in the store I may buy it then not sure yet. I have been using it for a mounth but can't tell any difference yet.

                  I use this as body wash. (I color my hair and would be afraid to use this as a shampoo.) It works great. It cleans thoroughly, gets rid of oil and acne and leaves me skin smelling fresh. The only downside is how expensive it is.

                      I have used this product before and it seems to keep my hair from falling out so much .I actually know a man that was bald on top and after using this for a while he really had fuzz ( real short hair ) where he had been bald .They don't advertise that the Aqua Glycolic shampoo will do this but I saw it for myself.

                            You have the benefit that I paid 184.00 office visit to receive. I had issues with dry scalp and oily skin on my face. A dermatologist recommended this by prescription about 6 years ago and I have been using every since. He advised to wet hair and apply and then wash rest of body before rinsing out hair. The first use and I was hooked for it!
