Hi guys, just wondering if I'm using the right amount of aha. I mix it with 2 pumps of moisturizer and 1 drop of jojoba oil. Is this ok? I'm using it once every 2 - 3 days mixed.

honestly I would use a little more!
Depending on how long youve been on the regimen though.

To judge how much I use I put one pump of moisturizer in my hand and try to squeeze an equal amount of AHA next to it!

hope this helps!

I would stick to that amount. I used AHA after coming off the regimen and it made my already sensitive skin, relatively more sensitive. So be careful on how regular you use it. Remember that it's removing dead skin cells to expose newer ones. Protect your skin with sunscreen if necessary.

Please use 1 pump of AHA+ and 1 pump of Moisturizer . Add 2-3 drops of Jajoba oil.


Moisturizer and Jajoba oil make sure that your skin is moisturized. AHA + is best and you can use it blindly.


It stings a bit but that is when it is working. I am using it for 1 month now and not faced issue 1 second !!


Morning : Wash with Cleanser + 2 pump of BP + 1 pump of moisturizer ( My skin do not become irritated on BP and as summer approaches here in india i will not use moisturizer with BP )


Night : Cleanser + 2 pump of AHA + 1/2 pump of moisturizer + 5-6 drops of JAJOBA oil.



Jajoba oil makes your skin shiny so i do not use in day time..I can afford my face to look skiny when i go to bed.


Please feel free to ask anything in case you are confused.


Quantity you shown is less.
