      Comments about Alpha Hydrox Intensive Serum:

      Many years ago, I was speaking to a physician I worked with about skin care and more specifically, the Murad line. She told me that her husband, who was a dermatologist, recommended Alpha Hydrox as it was more effective and cost a lot less than Murad. That was 15 yrs ago. I have strictly followed a routine of using the intensive serum and the enhanced cream plus exfoliation ever since that day. At age 63, people think that I'm in my early 40s. I'm so grateful to Dr. M for sharing this great product with me. It's truly The One That Works!

      Perfect for break outs and enlarged pores. Some sensitivity during initial use then skin adjusts (dryness).

        Comments about Alpha Hydrox Intensive Serum:

        No matter how many other products I try, I always end up coming back to this. The price is reasonable and it does what it promises which is to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. I use this in the morning under makeup and then the Alpha Hydrox Retinol Night ResQ in the evening. I may have other skin issues, but wrinkles aren't one of them, yet!

          Comments about Alpha Hydrox Intensive Serum:

          I love this product! I was having a lot of break outs and clogged pores. Started. Using this product every night at first. The first week I was still having break outs but they would dry up a lot quicker. I think it was helping to clear everything out. I've been using it for about a month and my skin is so smooth and clear! I could go without makeup also I've noticed that it had changed my skin from being dry and flaky in places and oily in others it's much more consistent.

          Comments about Alpha Hydrox Intensive Serum:

          I love all the alpha hydrox line. I alternate with Renova and this stuff. Excellent for stretching out the usefulness of the very pricey and prescription Renova. I also use this in the day under a good moisturizer and plenty of sunscreen. I am typociall told I look 10-15 years younger than I am...Does not get much better than this! That said, if you skin is sensitive it may be too harsh. Try the 10% acid. that is less harsh but I like the feel of the 14% better.

              Comments about Alpha Hydrox Intensive Serum:

              Another excellent product that does what it claims and its affordable. I alternate this with the AHA soufflé. at first, it does sting a little. After one week it calms down. I use three drops on face and two on neck, I put drops in palm and spread on skin with fingers. I love this serum. It's affordable and has great ingredients. I also use a antioxidant serum from Paula's Choice that's very affordable and its another excellent product that delivers quality results. I highly recommend these products. You don't have to spend hundreds to achieve great looking skin.

              Comments about Alpha Hydrox Intensive Serum:

              This greatly improved my skin after 2wks of consistent use.
              I have systic acne (altough under control), and this itches a little bit then I put my salacylic acid lotion afterwards. I use twice a day, and my skin has been totally clear, with only one pimple that was under my skin and now gone.
              My doctor had recommended this as a replacement for my retinal and antibiotics.

                Comments about Alpha Hydrox Intensive Serum:

                I love this product, have used the Alpha Hydroxy moisturizer for a year but added the Serum. It's a bit runny, very much a liquid so takes a bit ti get used to so you don't over pour but leaves your skin feeling refreshed, and smooth with even color. I love it, also helps with any acne issues. Great bargain for the price compared to other serums and skin lightening systems. LOVE IT
