I LOVE this product. Itís the only thing that helps keep my acne at bay, granted it has not stopped my acne totally, I still get hormonal acne during that time of the month but it greatly helps. I use it in the morning along with an oil free SPF and at night with aloe vera gel. I stopped using it once for about a week and I noticed all these small red acne on my cheeks, so I started up again and it went away shortly after so I know this product is doing its job. I also really like the alpha hydrox face cleanser, I tried their night creams, the 10% cream and the soufflť, but both made my acne worse so I will just stick to the gel. I think it is also slowly helping with my acne marks as well but itís a slow process. I can't really comment on it helping with wrinkles since I donít use it for that but I imagine since it is helping a little with acne marks that it is exfoliating my skin in a good way and would probably help with wrinkles and or age spots. The price isnít bad and I like the packaging since you can just squirt it out of the bottle instead of sticking my finger in there. I would and have recommended this product to a friend.

I bought this product almost a year ago because I had heard it helps get rid of blackheads and whiteheads, of which I have a generous amount. The first few times I used it, it stung a little, but didn't irritate or dry out my skin. I used it faithfully two times a day but didn't notice it making a huge difference. However, when I received the Olay Pro-x face brush for Christmas and started using that in conjunction, I noticed that my skin improved in look. I still had blackheads and whiteheads, but they were much reduced and smaller, probably because the brush got rid of dead skin cells and enabled the gel to sink in and be more effective. What really clinched it for me was when I lost the gel, and my skin freaked out. I have more whiteheads, the blackheads on my face are larger and some have even become raised, and I also have more pimples. I'm buying another bottle of this stuff asap; I didn't realize how much it was doing for my skin until I stopped using it.

This is either too mild for me or it just doesn't work. They also seem to have changed the packaging because I got a clear tube of the gel, which I don't like because light can reduce the efficacy of the product. Would not buy again.

I didn't see any results from this. It also felt uncomfortable on my skin, which tends toward the oily side.

This stuff burned my face really bad. I had a red, itchy, and flaky patch for months after using this for about a week or two. At first I wasn't sure this was the cause of the red flaky patch, so I tried it on my forehead a couple of weeks ago. It started itching, so I washed it off after an hour. My forehead is still a bit dry and flaky right now, just not severely since I didn't leave it on for very long. I no longer get acne where the flaky patch used to be, so it kind of worked to improve my skin. However, I don't think it was worth the months of flakiness. I would recommend testing it out on a small patch of skin several times before putting it all over your face. Also, 10% might be too strong for some people. Even though I don't have sensitive skin and was only using this product once every few days, my skin reacted really badly.

I currently use this product once a day usually at night but will eventually use it under my sunscreen when my clinique resurfacing stuff runs out. It did sting a little when i put it on after my toner but it went away quickly. I have nice smooth skin every morning when i wake up so i am very satisfied with the product and price

I liked this product for a while until I realized it wasn't strong enough for me, but I really do like the Alpha Hydrox line of products but because I have severe skin isssues I need more intense stuff. But this is great it does what it say and there are no cons.

i have problematic skin: sensitive, easily irritated and red, oily t-zone, dry chapped cheeks, prone to cystic acne. a few months ago i probably wouldve given this product a 5. i saw the difference the next morning after i put it on for the first time. my skin was brighter and my pimples were less red and a lot smaller. but then my skin started to peel and i had random rough patches of dry dead skin on my face. to top it off i started to break out again and this time with a vengeance. after a while it stung my skin so i stopped using it just as the bottle was almost depleted. i would like to give this product another go once my face is balanced out.
