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.

Enhanced Renewal Cream 12% Glycolic Acid

I feel like Alpha Skin Care is one of those hidden gems, they aren't a well known brand, but their products work and they are budget friendly. I have extremely sensitive skin, that tolerates very few actives. I had previously been using the 10% AHA lotion for many years, because my skin is so sensitive and could tolerate daily use of the 10%. However, I felt like it wasn't doing much for my skin anymore so I switched to the 12% cream. Even though the cream is thicker than the lotion, it's less sticky, and absorbs a lot faster than the lotion. Even with a stronger concentration of AHA this did not burn upon application. and my face was smoother, softer, and brighter. I'm not sure yet if I can tolerate this nightly without redness or irritation. Night one was all good, night two, just a slight bit of flushing/redness after application, but no dryness. since the concentration is stronger, I do use less of this than the 10%.
