Apart from a prescription Retin A, this is a very effective retinol. Alpha has another retinol product as well, Enhanced Wrinkle Repair Cream, which I used for years. Reduces breakouts and keeps my skin smooth.

Note: this is also reviewed in Sunscreens, but I have less to say about it as a sunscreen than as a primer! No kidding. Makeup goes on so nicely, and stays forever. I prefer a satin, non-matte makeup look, so am happy with the way it looks after a few minutes. If you want a less glowy effect, you can blot with a tissue before or instead of using powder.3 oz is anywhere between $8.50 and $22, and easier to find online. Fair warning: even stores that carry other Alpha Skin Care often don”t carry this.This is amazing stuff, and it’s been out for years, so I can’t believe it has no reviews...I stay out of the sun and generally use foundations that have physical sunscreens,

I am a huge fan of Alpha Skin Care's AHA products. I wanted to try this gel, even though I am very satisfied with another of their products, the AHA 12% Enhanced Revitalizing Skin Cream. Like all the AHA products from this company, the gel was highly effective at exfoliating, showing tangible improvement in skin texture in just one usage. It worked well on face or body, and its thin, slippery gel texture was easily spread over skin without tugging. It is fragrance free and dye free and generally non-irritating as long as the skin can tolerate AHA. Despite all this product has going for it, I found it didn't work well for my skin because it has almost no emollient properties, and I definitely need a little bit of moisture. For some reason, layering moisturizer over this product didn't work very well on my face, so I think the AHA has to be a bit more buffered for facial application. It might work better for those with very oily skin, who can't tolerate any amount of oil or moisturizing ingredients. On the body, it worked as a straight forward exfoliant that quickly dried, and could be layered under a body lotion if needed. For face, I only use AHA 2-3 times a week, and that was definitely enough to get the exfoliating benefits of the 10% gel. On body, I was able to use it daily without any issues--it smoothed rough areas and kept my KP in check like a champ.I found the tube packaging to be less than desirable. While it does protect the product from oxidation and microbes, it doesn't really suit the somewhat runny texture. The gel readily spills out of the tube and it is nearly impossible to control the amount of product that is dispensed. Thankfully it doesn't go to waste since anything that can't be used on the face can then be applied to the body. But that also means the product gets used up very quickly. This gel could easily go into an airless pump, or a different kind of tube with a smaller nozzle or one way valve. I doubt I will purchase this product again, but will continue to use the 12% cream. I love Alpha!!

The is the most boring and un-glamorous way to achieve and maintain beautiful skin all over your body. Unscented and very effective in smoothing and moisturizing, although some may want to use under another moisturizer if skin is really dry.

I have found my skin responds well to aha's. I use the serum and alternate between that and this. This has 12% aha and my skin looks so much better for it. I have some fine genetic forehead lines, large pores, and needed some general resurfacing. This has made my skin so good. All my lines are diminished and my pores are so small and clean.My skin is so smooth and looks so even toned. It also looks plumper and my smile lines are nearly invisible. For 39 I'm super happy with how my skin is. I have been using Alpha Skin Care products since before they changed their name. I was using them on and off and now I know I will stick with this because my face looks so much better for it.The price is very reasonable and they disclose their ph. These products for me work and do so very well. I get a few tiny purges when I started this but it was gone before it even began. For my fine lines this has worked better than anything else. I find the 12% to be great, since I also use the 14% my skin is used to this strength. Recommended.
