                    I suffer from adult cystic acne and I use benzoyl peroxide face wash regularly but it hasn't been controlling my break outs lately. The first time I used this with my clarisonic, my skin was clear. It is very drying so I use it every other day but it is a miracle worker for my skin!

                        A:

                        Post chemical peel skin can be very sensitive, so I would definitely wait till your skin has recovered from the peel. Glycolic Foaming Cleanser does contain glycolic acid and contains the traditional warning that all AHA products contain. *Not recommended for use with topical prescriptions, acne-erupted, or sensitive skin. Avoid contact with the eyes. If contact occurs, rinse well with water. If irritation develops and persists, discontinue use. Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using this product.

                        The glycolic acid in the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser will work to reduce skin discoloration overtime. To take it a step further, you should consider our Brightening Regimen Kit. It contains a collection of products that each address uneven skin tone and texture. http://www.ulta.com/brightening-regimen-kit?productId=xlsImpprod11351443

                        The glycolic acid in this toner will provide gentle exfoliation that will address both the acne prone skin and the hyper pigmentation. It should work well with your points of concern if you use 2-3 times a week.

                      I'm currently doing an all natural skin care routine with coconut oil at night and apple vinegar in the morning mixed with water which I found has cleared up my face but caused bacne on my shoulders.... is this a good product for shoulders? Also could I still incorporate this into my skin care routine for my face with what I'm already doing or would that be a bad mixture?

                        Glycolic Foaming Cleanser will provide the exfoliation required to breakdown the pore clogging debris that is causing these skin issues. You should swap out the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser for your regular cleanser 2-3 times a week. You can also apply our Drying Mask ONLY to those problem areas 1-2 times a week to further target the bumps.

                        Glycolic Foaming Cleanser is recommended for use by all skin types but the frequency of use differs on your skin type. Replace your regular cleanser 1-3 times a week (1-2 times for Dry to Combination skin, and 2-3 times for Combination and Oily).

                        A:

                        Assuming you don't have a skin sensitivity to glycolic acid - you can certainly use the Glycolic Foaming Cleanser 1-3 times a week depending on your skin type and skin tolerance. If dryness or irritation occurs, cut back the frequency of both products until you establish a custom skin care routine that works for you.
