Cleansers -Alpha Skin Care -Alpha Skin Care Refreshing Face Wash

Fantastic face wash. It foams but only slightly, so doesn't dry out your skin. I don't think it takes off makeup completely so I precleanse with micellar water but finish off with this face wash and haven't had any problems in the 8 months I have been using it. I run out fairly quickly (within 1.5-2 months) but ulta was having a sale where the face wash was only 2 dollars so I bought 5 of them recently for only 10 dollars. Highly recommend - also good for both summer and winter - I hate having to change up my skincare for different seasons so I appreciate products that I can use in any climate. Only complaint is that it is hard to get out the last bit of the face wash with the squeeze top but you can if you don't mind taking off the lid.


Treatments (Face) -Alpha Skin Care -Intensive Rejuvinating Serum 14% Glycolic AHA

This is an excellent lightweight serum used to combat fine lines and wrinkles and to improve skin texture and clarity.

Price: I bought this, at 2 ounces for $19, on Amazon. Compared to the last AHA serum I was using (at $90 for 1oz), it's a steal.

Packaging: Air tight bottle with a pump. Perfectly adequate

Product: I have been using AHA's on my skin for a few years: Neostrata Level 2, Neostrata Level 3, Peter Thomas Roth, Drunk Elephant and Paula's Choice (I have reviews on all except the PC, which did nothing for me). I was burning through the $90 / ounce stuff too quickly, even with only 1 pump a night. This is slightly more watery than the last serum I used, but the effects are similar--apply in the evening after washing and in the morning, my skin feels smoother, clearer and brighter. 14% is a fairly high formulation of AHA, and I definitely get a slight tingle the first minute or so following application, but nothing unbearable. Definitely do not start with this if you have never used AHA's on your skin before--the Neostrata Level 2 Smoothing lotion, at 10%, is a good beginner product, I think: easy on the wallet, easy to start slow with application and results fairly quickly. I think this product is an excellent choice for those who have been around AHA's for awhile and have a hard time justifying the much higher price point of some similar products.

Treatments (Face) -Alpha Skin Care -10% AHA Anti Wrinkle Treatment - Oil Free Formula

It's partly my fault that I haven't read in Amazon description that it's not suitable for sensitive skin. When I saw it it was too late to cancel.
Once the package arrived I decided to try it out. I couldn't send it back, it's nonreturnable (I see why - there is no safety protection on packaging, it's just a tube closed with a lid and packed in a cardboard box).
However there are many reviews on Internet from people with sensitive skin who love this product, unfortunately it's not my case.
- it brakes out my skin
- it's very sticky and no mater how long do I wait before applying next product (I've tried an hour gap) it doesn't get absorbed
- the packaging is extremely cheap and product is very liquid (I always get out more than I want to have)
- due to it's liquid consistency I always end up eating it (I don't apply it close to my lips, but somehow it moves into my mouth).
Disappointed, would not recommend to anyone.

Treatments (Face) -Alpha Skin Care -Alpha Skin Care Enhanced Wrinkle Repair Cream

on 12/22/2016 1:47:00 AM

Tldr: OTC Retinol with vitamin C that's affordable and gentle, but without dramatic results.

It's an unscented cream in a tube (easy dispensing) that applies smoothly and finishes almost matte. I use it after the AHA glycolic souffle in a thin layer or sometimes mix the two, but always follow with a moisturizer. I do not use either acid during the day. I started 3x a week but had no purging and only slight stinging sensitivity reactions which now I don't get (no burning at all) and I use this daily (pm). I follow it with a sensitive skin serum once it's dry and matte, then whatever moisturizer I'm using based on seasons.

I've been using this for about 1 year on and I've been putting off this review hoping for a really great result to declare. The truth is I've seen a very small improvement in my under eye wrinkles and little to no change on my forehead "micro wrinkles" (that's what my esthetician calls my forehead wrinkles since they are not very pronounced but are there for sure). What's most noticeable is after adding both these acids and now that I'm up to daily use, I rarely feel the need for physical exfoliation/additional exfoliation and my milia are almost completely gone. The lack of irritation for my rosacea skin is also a huge plus since a lot of products of this type is incredibly painful for me. Also my skin hasn't gotten worse so I feel this falls into a cheap preventative category. I'm thinking of changing my routine but I would still recommend trying it.

EDIT: After trying several other retinoid and retinol creams, I consistently come back to this product as it's a known 0.15% retinol cream that is not irritating to me. I was going to give it 5 lippies, but I keep wishing it was formulated without the wax so that's the only reason it's a 4 lippie product. I prefer lighter formulations for my targeted products.
