Check if they (on the web pages that sells it) ship to Australia, probably they'll do. I waited over 5 weeks for my cleanser though..

Well I gave up on this Acne-Free stuff I was using and started sneaking around my Mom's cupboards to see if she had anything for acne. I found this cleanser, forgot the name, but's it's just regular cleanser, nothing for acne. Then I found this Sari Toner and it said on the back in the ingredients Glycolic acid, so I started using it and now 5 days later my red marks are noticeably better and i'm getting no serious pimples, just little tiny ones. I hope i'm not just having a good week.

Should I be using the aqua glycolic cleanser at all during facial peels? I'm planning on getting one and If I can't use this at all I need to get a different cleanser. I've read tons of threads here and I think you can use it starting 24 hours after but I wanted to make sure.

I used this product for a month and there was no difference. I still have moderate-severe acne

I'm pretty sure it's sole purpose is Red Marks but yeah..... it could help with acne :rolleyes:

I've been using this about 2 months now. I guess it's made some improvements to my red marks, but I also don't use it everytime I wash my face. I still use my Clearasil to wash my face when I get a breakout. I use it anytime I don't have a breakout. But I don't breakout that much anymore, so I use the Aqua enough. Guess I'll just keep on seeing how it does...

I ask about using it twice a day here but no one answered me, but I was asking about only using it once a day and since I wear make up it, I should use it at nighttime but what about in the morning do I not just wash my face? what else can I use?

I've been on this board for a year now so I know a lot of stuff trust me I've used so much stuff suggested on this board its crazy lol

I used it twice a day. I find it to be mild enough to where it didn't irritate my skin.

Since it has Glycolic in it, it's actually prepping your face for any facial peels you do. I find it better to introduce your face "slowly" to a product and when you're doing something with more strength "Peel" it will be more effective. I believe it's safe to use after a peel, just be sure not to rub it in too hard. That goes for any cleanser.

If you have moderate-severe acne, then Glycolic isn't for you. Clearly you're face is stemming from something other than occasional pimples. I would possible try DKR or even see about any meds you could get from a Derm. Honestly, no OTC product will help severe acne.

You might want to try using it twice a day. If you're still getting pimples, then you will still have some redness. I found that Aqua was a good median for what I wanted for my face. Most cleansers didn't help my acne nor or redmarks but just "cleansed". Aqua does have a small amount of Glycolic that it "can" even skin tone and help acne but every face is different when it comes to healing.

I'd like to say sorry I haven't kept up with this thread. I will try to stop in to help when I can.

Been using this stuff for a few days, nearly a week i think. How long until people saw results with red marks? and is it meant to sting a bit?

Hello. I ordered this product now. I dont get new pimples if i dont eat fast food or food with lots of shuggar, like chocolate, chips, soda and stuff. So i wonder, does this help to hold my acne gone while eating "bad" food?

Im tired of drinking water and eat healthy. It would be so relaxing if i could watch a movie and eat whatever i want, without getting a new pimple! So tired now!

I've been using this twice a day for about a month and has broke me out really bad. I'm not sure if I should stop using this or only start using it once a day.

I started using Aqua Glycolic 10% face cream last night. I noticed a difference first thing this morning. I've very excited about this product! I have tried other AHA's and they give me a rash immediatelly, this one caused no irritation.

Does anyone know how I can get a hold of AG when I'm in the UK? I really want some cleanser and possibly some face cream...

Ok, enough of the toner, I got half-way through the bottle. Too dang drying during the winter, I think in the summer it might be ok. It did however bring down a bit of milia under my eyes and purged a bump I had for nearly a year. Something weird happened though, it came up, I popped its final pop, then I put on lots of neosporin on top of the toner and this area of skin around the spot died. It peeled for about a week and so I completely stopped the toner.

I ordered the cleanser though! Should be here next week. I'm not giving up on AG.

I'll let you guys know how it goes.

This product is £27 RRP in the UK. Buy it from the US for £15 including postage. It's great!

Wow, there's some really positive reviews on MUA. I might just consider buying this! Have you tried any of the other Jan Marini products? What are they like for improving skin tone/red marks?

1) You should still stay on BP, Aqua Glycolic is just a cleanser.

2) Twice a Day

3) Too much AHA will irritate and make your face read, only Aqua Glycolic

Good regimen, but I would stay off Cetaphil products, use AG cleanser, then apply NHSFL Night.

Everyone's skin is different it may or may not help with your mid-moderate acne.

No, diet plays a major role in acne, stay to avoid those bad foods.

I ordered some Aqua Glycolic Facial Cleanser yesterday, and i'm excited to see if I get good results! Question, though:

Would it be okay to use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser in the morning, and Aqua Glycolic at night, or is using two different cleansers probably a bad idea? I'm thinking about using Aqua Glycolic once a day for a few days, and then work up to using it twice a day so I don't start off too strong and risk getting irritated/an IB.

I have a very uneven skin tone and have facial redness, and since this sheds the surface layer of your skin and mainly works on the surface, it'll help with this?

I don't know if you know but Cetaphil products mostly all have pore clogging ingredients in it, try to stay away from Cetaphil. Most people do not get an IB from using Aqua Glycolic, but you can try using it every other day once to see. Aqua Glycolic is an exfoliant, yes it will help with shedding of the skin and turning over new skin cells to the top.

Thanks!

I didn't know that, makes me a little skeptical. Maybe i'll just get to using the AG twice a day once it arrives.

So, I would apply it to dry skin, wash it off, and while the skin's wet, apply it again and rinse that off? Seems easy, and would it be okay to use clindamycin phosphate at night after I use the Aqua Glycolic, or would that be a bit too much?
