      I am not impressed with this product. I read the reviews online and almost everyone had a positive review. This product burned my skin on my face and pealed it off. I looked like I had really bad sunburn.

        Comments about Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Lotion 10% Glycolic AHA:

        Oh my gosh! I can't say enough about the Alpha Hydrox products!! I am completely in love with my skin now!! I started using the 10% Alpha Hydrox lotion and Alpha Hydrox cleanser a few months ago when I stumbled across them on sale at TJ Maxx. Best discovery ever!!! I am 34 and have struggled with adult acne for a few years now. I was also beginning to see the first signs of aging creep upon my face. I would always whine that I shouldn't have to worry about both wrinkles and zits at the same time! lol Thanks to these products, I don't have to anymore!! My face is COMPLETELY clear of zits and my fine lines are disappearing too!! I have tried NUMEROUS products and even professional treatments, but nothing has ever cleared my skin like this stuff has! My skin feels amazingly soft too!! It doesn't even feel like the same skin!! I wake up every morning rubbing my face in disbelief how incredible it feels! I will NEVER again buy any other products, only the the Alpha Hydrox brand! They are a God Send!

        An Okay Product

        By Skin Care Comes First

        from Minneapolis, MN

        About Me Beauty Expert

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Moisturizes
        • Softens Skin

        Cons

        • Heavy
        • Irritates Skin
        • Not Good To Use Everyday

        Best Uses

        • Day Before A Big Event
        • Dry Skin

        Comments about Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Lotion 10% Glycolic AHA:

        Overall, this is an okay product for what it is. I would only reccommend this to dry skin people, that needs skin looking super perfect the day before a big event.

        On the bottle it says that it is meant for dry skin types, so I wonder why I even purchased it?
        But that aside, it is a great AHA lotion for dry skin types. If you have oily or even combination skin, this will make your skin even more oily so beware!

        I had to return this product due to it not working for my skin type. Also, you should not use this everyday as the glycolic acid in the product sloughs off the dead skin cells off the top layer of your epidermis(top layer of your skin basically), and that can make your skin turn super sensitive to the sun and conditions in your environment.

        I used this product too often and ended up with redness, darkening of the skin and oily skin. So if you are someone checking this out, I would not reccommend it, instead, I would exfoliate gently each day with a gentle facial wash and wash cloth.

        The only time I would reccommend this product is if you have a big event the next day where you need your skin to look extra perfect, otherwise, skip this product. Prolonged use of glycolic acid can lead to super oily skin(which can cause acne and blackheads), it can also cause your skin to become red and sensitive and cause more wrinkles. This is because if you are removing the top layer of your skin to reveal baby smooth skin underneath, unless you are a celebrity and never, EVER go outside at ALL, then if you wear this and go outside, great damage will be taken upon your skin.

        Hope this review helps someone, bottom line, do not use this product unless you have a super important event where you are going to be photographed at.

        Brightens skin

          • Daily Use

          • Uneven Skin Tone

          Comments about Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Lotion 10% Glycolic AHA:

          In the beginning, it was too drying so I had to use a thicker cream over it. Now, I have adjusted to it & can use it at night alone. It's winter time as I write this so it may be less drying in the summer. I found it to brighten my complexion & shrink my larger pores. Everything else is the same, no changes. Also, it only works if you use it. If you stop using it for a while, then the gained benefits decline.

              Picked this up after a good beautypedia review for a basic good AHA and I am very pleased. Higher concentration didn't burn or cause me problems. And I noticed immediate results with better skin after a couple of uses. I will definitely repurchase as this is a smart buy to ad on for skincare antiaging.
