I bought the Anti-Wrinkle Exfoilator, and this cream works like a charm! All of the little bumps were gone, and my skin looked poreless! I was very pleased, and it has even improved the evenness of my complexion! I bought this at the 99 cent store, and after seeing how great this product is I will at least be buying four more bottles! You only need a small amount of the cream so it lasts a long time, but the odor is very strong. It doesn't sit on your skin or leave a bad smell, so I give this a 5!!

After having a breakout with PC 8% AHA, I decided to give this a try based on the rave reviews from other MUAers. I must say, I am not in the least disappointed! This product has made my skin look poreless, has greatly evened out my skin-tone, faded my red marks, smoothed out my lines, and gave me a glow! What more could you ask for? Oh! And it also helps to keep my skin clear so much that I find I no longer require the use of a BHA! I've been using this for a couple of weeks and am so satisfied with the results. Alpha Hydrox is the best drugstore AHA out there, and my skin proves it! **UPDATE 5/03** Using this again and still amazed at the performance of this miracle gel. A must have for acne-prones with pore size concerns. *Update 10/03: since being diagnosed with rosacea, my skin can no longer tolerate this. Still think it's an affordable, effective choice for non-sensitives.

I originally purchased this to use on my shins to fade old shaving scars. I liked it so much that from time to time I have also used it on my face and neck. I don't really like AHA solutions on my face (preferring BHAs for my specific skin concerns,) however, the product itself is high quality and a great price rolled into one hell of a cheap and unfortunately ugly package.

This is a beauty deal. Few AHA products give the details about the percentage and what type of acids are used. Alpha Hydrox is upfront with the information. I've used this for several months now, and it improved the clearness and smoothness of my skin. For people with sensitive skin though, I suggest they do a patch test first.

I tried a sample of PC AHA solution, and loved it, then read all the reviews here claiming that this one was far better, so I gave it a try. I was somewhat disappointed and will be going back to the Paula's Choice. First, I don't like how this product settles on my face - it leaves my skin rather sticky and tacky and takes a long time to dry. Second, it's definitely more of a gel, somewhat thicker than the serum feel of the PC, and I think I just prefer a more fluid application. I'd say the end result is more or less the same as the PC, but as far as skin-feel and application is concerned, I prefer the PC. The Alpha Hydrox price isn't significantly better than the PC; I can only find the Alpha Hydrox Oil Free Gel in one local (and expensive) drugstore, so availability isn't a grand advantage, either. That said, I still can't believe the amazing results of AHA solutions, and wish I'd tried one sooner!

I think this is an excellent AHA gel. Since my skin is acne-prone, BHA's are a more effective choice because they penetrate the pore, which AHA's can't do. Although, my skin was a bit smoother when I was using this, it just doesn't help much with breakouts (which AHAs aren't made to do anyway). Although, if you have old red marks from past breakouts, I found this to be helpful. If you need an AHA, this is a good one to try that's very affordable.

I'm a big fan of PC's products but as far as AHAs go, hers does not top this. The Alpha Hydrox didn't leave a nasty film on my skin, the liquid gel sinks right in and it is cheaper and easier to access (Wal-Mart, Zellers, drugstores). Definitely the best AHA product out there, no fragrance or coloring agents, it doesn't irritate my ultra sensitive skin.
EDIT: after months of using this, still no sign of irritation, skin looks smooth and poreless. Definitely a keeper.

This is a good, inexpensive AHA product. If you are saving $$, this is the way to go an still get results. A good product!

This is the best AHA gel on the market. The light-weight formula goes on smoothly and doesn't leave the face feeling "filmy." (I use this every morning underneath my Olay Complete - it "layers" nicely). Only a tiny bit is needed to cover the face, so the tube lasts a long time, and costs under $10! This is definitely the most effective AHA I've ever used (EL's Fruition Extra did NOTHING for me, but that's another review). It helps get rid of dry patches and seems to keep me from getting terrible blemishes. I can't use BHA's because they cause me to break out, so this is a wonderful alternative.
