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

                  Comments about Alpha Hydrox Intensive Serum:

                  This is great for helping to smooth facial texture, as well as shrink pore size. It exfoliates without any scrubbing or tugging, but it gentle enough to cause minimal sensitivity. I also use it on my husband's back acne. Thank you keeping this affordable and silicone-free!

                    This product is awesome, but since its in a liquid form, it can be a bit messy, but not a big deal. I would like to see this have a gel-like consistency, so it would be easier to apply. Otherwise, amazing product!
