    When using products gonfrom the thinnest to the thickest..Use this as your first product...as the consistency is very thin. Then later other products on topbof this. This stuff really works!!!

      Comments about Alpha Hydrox Intensive Serum:

      I've only been using this product for a few days and I cannot believe the difference -- my skin is glowing with a clearer complexion than I've had in years! I use it morning and night, and I use a generous portion all over my face (except right under my eyes), neck, and chest. I can see, though, how it might be slightly irritating to those who have never used an exfoliating product. I've used exfoliants for years, though. This is the BEST yet! I do have to say that I use Skinceuticals products, in addition to this one (CE Ferulic and Phyto+, which I've only used for a a week). My skin looks the best it has in years. It seems that the addition of this product made the difference dramatic.

      Comments about Alpha Hydrox Intensive Serum:

      I wanted to find something that could replace my Sunday Riley good genes serum that worked well but has since started to decrease in efficacy after using up a whole bottle using it everyday. I have read several reviews and this seemed to fit the bill. So far after two weeks, I'm impressed. My main issue is my combination skin with clogged pores and some hyperpigmentation from post acne marks. So far, Sunday Riley helped but my marks now took longer to lighten. I had a few post acne marks that wouldn't go away and so far this helped in two weeks! It is irritating and it tingles on application but my skin got used to it. It also applies well under makeup. I do find it made my skin a tad bit oily and at the same time dried out parts of my skin in the beginning. I just have to make sure I have oil blotting sheets in AM and apply something hydrating at night since I use it nightly anyway. Other than that, this is a cost effective serum for the results you get and I think this is bound to dethrone my uber expensive serum!

        This product is the best value, why spend a lot more on products that won't work nearly as well. My dermatologist recommended this line of products over 20 years ago due to the price and how it well it worked.

              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).

                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.
