Hey everyone!


Just wanted to ask does anyone here use just AHA+ as their only acne fighting ingredient? I'm so sick of BP and it's bleaching effects, I stopped using BP in june and decided to try water only regimen. Needless to say that was a terrible mistake. Now I just wash face every morning and night with paula's choice skin balancing cleanser and moisturize after every wash with oil-free gel moisturizer and apply AHA+ every other night. I still get acne on the sides of my mouth and inner cheeks. What is really weird is that I don't get acne anymore on my forehead, nose, below nose area and center of my jaw, and those places were my biggest acne problem when my acne first appeared about 15 years ago..


So all in all, it seems that AHA+ might work work for me as my only acne fighter, acne has slowly decreased, maybe it would work better if I could apply it every night but my skin can't yet tolerate that much.


Hope to hear from everyone,


Best regards,




P.S. I found one study where it was proved that glycolic acid does reduce acne causing bacteria and may be good alternative to BP.

I don't have any info, but you may be on to something! That study is very interesting.
