It is best to use after one month, aha+ is no joke, even though I started using it after 4 months into regimen, the aha makes my face itch real bad the first time I use it, now I just use less than a pea size everyday. Is it coconut oil you're talking about? I think it will cause breakout. I use Dan's moisturiser and it works just fine. Another alternative is Cetaphil moisturiser, I heard good raves about it.
