Glycolic Renewal Smoothing Cream 10% Glycolic Acid

My skin loves Glycolic. Have been using for about 5 months daily with the matching mousse cleanser. Helps keep acne & blackheads at bay and really does smooth skin. I prefer to use at night. I use the matching mousse cleaner in the morning. I moisturize during the day with tiny bit of raw cacao (natural sunscreen) & almond oil. Small squeeze bottle - 40g at around $50.00. You really do not require a lot of product for application. A little goes a long way (first tube lasted 4.5 months!) Bought twice, both times on sale. Good value. My skin has never looked better! Wonderful. Highly recommended!

15AHA Lotion Plus (Glycolic Formulation)

Tl;dr: - very effective - helps with clogged pores and texture, can prevent inflammations - it tingles, so maybe use the 10 AHA version if you are new to this or have sensitivity - good value for price The best AHA product I have found so far. I had 10 AHA version before, and it worked well too. After that, I tried other brands, but nothing worked as well, and I literally needed a step up in efficiency, so recently I got it in 15 strength. Don't be afraid to use it even if you don't have the concerns listed in the product description (but of course only use if you need it!). My skin is normal/dehydrated, prone to spot hyperpigmentation due to blemishes. I toned down my hormonal breakouts with good vitamins and supplements (if you are active, sports vitamins are good value with big amounts of ingredients, make sure to have zinc, iodine, resveratrol, and the basics). Avoiding processed sugar also helps me dramatically, the swelling goes down so much faster, so I have to stick to sundries and fruit (I don't like them much but I have no choice, haha). However, my skin is very tough (i.e. hard to break, I don't know what words to use) though it looks thin and transparent. This makes it easy to have my pores clogged without even noticing. On top of that, I have rather high chemical sensitivity and touch my face unconsciously (I have anxiety). As a result, all these clogged pores and impurities trapped under the skin can get inflamed in hours. Then I have regular pimples (hormonal one can't be extracted since they are mostly swelling, these ones have an obvious center of the inflammation and they try to get rid of it, if it makes sense). So you can see how important it is for me to exfoliate effectively: it can break the vicious circle. This product is really potent. I can see the change in texture right the next day. It tingles, so I used to be scared of using stronger AHA, but now I know I have to do this to prevent bigger issues. My skin becomes so soft, clear and even. It is a little drying, but that's a property of AHA. But your skin is exfoliated and ready to absorb skincare. This lotion is also effective for keratosis pilaris on my arms and thighs. A tube of this can last up to a year for me, so I'm content with the value. I like that it doesn't have fragrance, and the packaging is simple. For my skin it is the only real game-changer. I use retinol, vit C etc. treatments, and they are a must for sure, but they only help maintain the condition, while this product really changes it. I'm the person who has to use AHA, and I highly recommend it if you have similar concerns.

15AHA Lotion Plus (Glycolic Formulation)

I actually use the face cream version of this. Up until I hit my 30's I didn't take care of my skin like I should have which caused ALOT of texture and dryness. I read a review of this on here several years ago and thought I'd try it. I started slowly and worked my way up to using every night. It works. It REALLY works. My skin has become much, much smoother and the dullness is gone. Yay! It is rather pricey so what I do is buy a large amount of the sample size on ebay. It saves me money and I like the fact that the sample sachets stay fresh. I highly recommend this to those who have texture, dullness, scarring or are just looking for a nice "glow."
