Glycolic acid is NOT burning what the heck

I recently started using glycolic acid as my nightly moisturizer because Dan said that it would help reduce Flakes and also is hydrating. Dan said that it's supposed to sting a little which means it's working. The first few times it was burning a little kind of like a stinky burn so I knew it was working it wasn't burning my skin like chemical painful though. I put a pretty decent amount on and I don't feel any burning or tingling at all. Should I use more I mean I used pretty good amount though so I'm kind of confused? LOL thanks guys

Hi bbaye,

Consider yourself lucky. Some people do not experiencing any side effects at all when using the AHA+ so rest assured that what you are going through is perfectly normal.
