What kind of glycolic acid do you mean? What strength? You can find fairly mild peels, or even milder lotions at the grocery store or pharmacy.

if you want 10% you will unlikely find it in a pure form, but there are lots of moisturizers and other products that contain that percentage

i think neutrogena healthy skin conains 10% and everybody from what i hear is very happy with it

also try paula's choice, i think they even make 10% toners

or, if you don't find anything, try this at home trick

GA is semi-soluble with water, so what you can do is buy a 30% (try puredeming.com) and mix it with water (2 parts water, 1 part ga if 30%), not the whole substance, just the amount you need for 1 application, mix or shake vigorously and soak a cotton pad in it with which you will put it on your face immediately after mixing

you don't have to rinse that one

good luck
