I'm not really one for reviews, but i had too for this one. I've tried sooo many products in hopes of my acne scars fading and nothing has worked liked this one! Within ONE week i've seen drastic change and i can't wait to see what my skin will look like in a few more !!
So i've been on the regimen for a month and it cleared up my skin completely except for my scars. I decided to try the AHA glycolic acid but it burns my skin so much. I don't have sensitive skin so i'm really confused why this is happening. When i apply the product it's fine for 2 mins and then starts burning and makes me turn red. Plus if i rub my face stuff comes off but i'm not sure if it's built up product or dead skin. I really need this product to work so it can help my scars so if anyone knows how to help the burning please tell me I can't go on like this much longer.
Update review after 1.5 month using AHA:
I can say nothing else but thanks!
I got sooo many compliments from my friends, they said my skin not only clearing up
but also radiant!
I am very happy with the result, and whenever I got new bump(s),
I just gave small dot of AHA and it will be calmer the next morning.
Highly recommend this product, but SPF is required because your skin might be sensitive by it.
I am with the regimen 2.5 months now and decided to use AHA on the 5th week.
Before using the product, I read reviews and Dan's videos just to make my decision of buying AHA is legit. lol.
So I orderd my second regimen set along with AHA, because the shipping is so expensive. (cry).
I have been using it for almost 3 weeks now and found that my skin is getting softer and brighter.
I still have small breakouts, but if I applied AHA immediately, it will recover fast too! MAGIC!
First time using AHA, it stung a bit and my face gets a bit red. But it disappear in the morning.
I also notice that my face easily gets to red if my skin exposed to the sun too long.
But yes, just use the SPF (i am using neutrogena clear skin SPF 55) before you go out the house.
So far I am liking it, and hoping for the best result in the next few months!
I just want to say that I'm a skin care junkie! I've used everything out there. Expensive brands, drugstore brands, etc. This is the best AHA product I've ever used! Seriously, even if you don't have acne, this product will do wonders for scarring, discoloration, and aging. I will definitely continue to buy this product!
I been on the regimen for about a month and just started using the aha+, and the first 2 night of using it I had a new breakout .? I just felt like it was back peddling .. and going circles ? HELP FEELING DEFEATED
Hi I just have a question, do I do one full pump of aha + one full pump of moisturizer or is it half a pump of aha + half a pump of moisturizer?
A dime size of each? quarter size of each?
I added this treatment to my regimen about 2.5 months into using the BP. I have reactive, sensitized skin & wondered if this would be too much. It's completely amazing! This completes the regimen by smoothing out the texture of your skin. I use the BP morning & night, everyday. Once I added this in, I use this instead of the BP every 3rd night. I know some people use this layered over the BP but I haven't tried that because the method I'm doing is working. I can't recommend this enough. I get zero irritation from this & couldn't be happier. I am an esthetician & have worked for several medical grade skincare companies & this is the best I've personally used. Simple & effective without the frills that can be irritating to some people.
i just have a question about this product, my skin is sensitive and most likely I don't have acne on my face just one or two on the side of my face, but i have a lot of scars red marks from an acne before , can i use this product without the bp ?, because i have seen in a lot of reviews that people use it with bp, or do i have to use bp since I don't have breakouts ?, I'm welling to buy the product because i want to get red off the redmarks and scars,
I love using this because it gets rid of all the build up & dead skin after using the benzoyl peroxide. My skin is dry from it, and applying the AHA at night makes my face smooth and clean after I wash my face in the morning! I also love this for when I decide to apply anything such as foundation/concealer/powder. I haven't been wearing any face makeup, but when I do, I use AHA the night before with whatever day it falls into my routine. If I don't, my face is crusty and everything clings to dry patches. It's best to just avoid putting makeup on your face until the next morning from when you apply the AHA at night if you want your face to look a bit less dry! I always wondered what other people do when it comes to this regimen using makeup, and this is what I found that works for me! :) hope this helps
