Alpha Skin Care 10 AHA Essential Renewal Lotion

I began using this lotion approximately one year ago after I decided that Peter Thomas Roth 10% glycolic acid was just getting too expensive to use. It turned out to be a good choice. This is a very effective exfoliant and works just as well as PTR. It has a lightweight feel and easily absorbs into the skin. It has the perfect ph for me and can easily be used with other products without problems. It has improved my skin tone, texture and minimizes fine lines. I am realistic about my more prominent wrinkles that they won't disappear but I do feel that maintaining a good skin regimen does include a good AHA like this one. A generous size product at a fair price that does what it's suppose to is a pretty good bargain.

Intensive Rejuvinating Serum 14% Glycolic AHA

Didn't work for my sensitive skin. Used about 3x a week late summer and fall. Took quite a few months to realize this was not purging my skin but rather causing small itchy red bumps on my forehead. Quit using it and within a week all itching and bumps are gone. It did provide somewhat of a glow the next day on the rest of my face, but honestly, I don't think it did anything for it. I do use Retin-A, so maybe it was just too much to add this into my routine.

Dual Action Skin Lightener with 2 percent Hydroquinone and 10 percent AHA

I purchased this six months ago and have been using it twice a day since then on some pigmented spots on my face and forearms. I had Limelight IPL 8 months ago and was using this product to try to fade some spots more and maintain the fading on others. On ones that were already faded it has worked well to maintain but for the still pigmented ones it's been mixed. I also use MUAC peels (glycolic previously, lactic currently) and am fanatic about sunscreen 365 days even though I live in northern Canada. My Limelight technician quit the clinic she was at and they haven't trained anyone new yet. When I go on vacation to the US I get it done there as well so looking forward to getting several limelight sessions in the winter and using this to maintain.
