Hey guys,

                   i recently bought the AHA from the acne.org store and i usually use it as directed in the regimen. But i was wondering if i could substitute it for the face wash and use the AHA as a face wash instead with BP?

 

So using AHA as a face wash and BP applied afterwards?

 

Thanks

I'm not sure what you mean...are you trying to use Dan's AHA cream as a face wash? Because I don't think that would work because it's not a cleanser, and it's a cream, you can't wash it off like with a cleanser? Also, I'm curious as to why you want to stop using the cleanser to begin with? 

 

I would advise against it...unless you mean you're trying to substitute the cleanser with a different cleanser that has AHA in it??

Yes I agree with the previous post.  The AHA from the Regimen is a cream not a cleanser.  You can get cleansers that have AHA in them if that is what you want. From what I have read most people don't think that there is much point in having AHA in a cleanser because you rinse it off so it is not on your skin long enough to do any good.
