These are great. The pads are large and you can do not only your face and neck (if your neck can handle it!) but your hands and elbows, too, all with one pad. I find they are beneficial to my elbows and backs of my hands as well as my face. They do sting and tingle a bit for a few minutes but it goes away pretty fast. I think they are effective and softening. 14% AHA is pretty high - at the …Read more

as you may or may not know.. this product is now discontinued. the line is now named simply named "alpha" but the swipes are discontinued. you may be able to find on ebay or drugstore.com. they still carry other products from their line but completely different name and packaging. aside from that info above, these do work well. very mind for me but use 1x weekly. I am 34 with combo …Read more

I really like these swipes and I can definitely tell a difference in the morning after using these at night. I cut circles in half to save money and I feel like I never used up the product by using a whole one.

These pads do what they're supposed to, they chemically exfoliate with AHAs. My main complaint about them is the texture of the pads - so scratchy! I am using a chemical exfoliator to avoid scratching my skin with grainy scrubs, so these sort of defeat the purpose. However, they do what they claim, they are easy to use, and the packaging is simple. I started using these without building up …Read more

I got these from the spa where I get facials. Very affordable and I was thinking of alternating with my fabulous Natura Bisse Glyco Extreme Peel to try save some $$, The plan was to use one or two pads per week JUST on my nose and chin - the only places where I have larg(er) pores and rough skin- the rest of my face is smooth, glowing and soft from the Natura Bisse Peel and other products I use …Read more

I love these, just like I love almost every product from Alpha Hydrox. It's simple, straightforward, and to the point.

They are thin little rounds that apply 14% AHA to your face (or anywhere else). They're not dripping in liquid, nor do they dry out quickly. They are pretty inexpensive and usually in stock at my Ulta. Since all they do is apply AHA, they're great to …

The price is right, but that was really about it for me.

They are a bit too mild, in my opinion, and so I think you'd really have to use them every single day to really see a difference. I much prefer the ones I used a while back from DCL which are stronger and contained fewer irritants like methylchloroisothiazolinone.

I've learned a lot over the past eight months a ive struggled with very very bad hormonal acne. I do have the skin care board on mua to thank for that. I got over my terrible bout of acne through a consistent regimen, bcp, and benzaclin. I now struggle with clogs, hyperpigmentation, and scarring. Since rx retinoids are not tolerable on my sensitive skin, I knew I needed something else …Read more

I was originally going to give this four lippies, but I think I've just come to have very high expectations from Alpha Hydrox. Such a great brand!
These pads don't leave my skin dry, as I had expected them to. Quite the opposite, actually; I'm so glad I don't have to worry about these making my skin all tight and dry.
I used them every other day before bed, but you …

Apparently I am allergic to something in the two Alpha Hydrox products that I've used--the 14% AHA Swipes and Res-Q cream. The Swipes caused a rash everywhere they were used (back of hands, arms, face, neck & decollete) that only went away when I started taking OTC Zyrtec (antihistamine). I returned that product to Ulta for a refund.

I had also bought Res-Q cream which …
