Aqua Glycolic [Ends Acne. Ends Red Marks]

Recommended Posts

I've been using Aqua Glycolic for three months now and I've been very patient and I'm still breaking out all over. It smooths my skin but it makes me break out in crazy places. I'm thinking about discontinuing it and regret trying it since I got redmarks now and my redmarks take years to heal.

I made the same mistake as you and quit BP and started only using AG.

Don't expect AG to prevent all of your acne...

I think many people are getting confused about this product, I kind of want to set it straight. This product is not like BP or any acne curing product, it is an exfoliant, for most of us it will not make the acne better, but it helps with skin cell turn overs, thus is more effective for hyperpigmentation.

I have a PayPal account as well. my email is [email protected]

Maybe sell it on eBay? You already have a paypal account...

I think you can get in trouble for trying to sell stuff on this site though... maybe I'm wrong.

I am not sure either but I think its only prescription drugs you cannot sell over acne.org; that is very understandable as it is incredibly dangerous.

That means I can't use this cleanser with retin-a right?

Do you mean how many 'pumps' as in the amount? I pump once for each of my cheeks, and then just one more for my forehead and the temple area. So three.

I use about 2 pumps per area(2 pumps for each cheek, and one pump for forehead) but that is just me because I have acne/hyperigmentation spreaded through my face. It is different for all people, just spread it around your problem areas you know?

I didn't feel like ordering and waiting for the product so I went from pharmacy to pharmacy asking about this product (CVS, Walgreens, Rite-Aid, etc.) Most people don't know what "Aqua Glycolic" is. I finally found a pharmacist at CVS that said it's a product they don't keep in stock but can order for you. Tell them you want it and you can come pick it up the next day for around $15. Hope that helps anyone looking to buy it.

As for using it, it has the same consistentcy as Dan's BP gel except it's kinda "melted." People say you feel a "tingle" when you first use it but I feel nothing. It actually doesn't really feel like it exfoliates either. It hasn't really reduced my red marks but I'll be giving it a long term shot as long as it doesn't cause any adverse reaction.

You can still use it, janis is talking about Accutane, Retin-A and Accutane=Different.

Yah but my derm told me that accutane is like retin-a in pill form...Would it get my skin extra sensitive? I'm seeing good results with aqua glycolic but i also still want to keep using my retin-a

hey every one.

I have been using Retin-A 0.1% cream that my derm perscribed. It cleared up my acne and i havn't really had any acne in weeks. I also use Benzac Wash 10% in the shower to apply to my back and face. The only thing left now is my brown and red marks.

so my question is will this cleanser make me break out? and how long does it take to see results. i really want to get rid of my brown/red marks.

Honestly, you will have to try it out for yourself. If you get redness and increased sensitivity then just use AG every other day.

Usually people do not break out using this product. Every one's skin is different so it is hard for me to tell you when you will start to see results. I saw results in about 3-5 weeks.

Wow.. I use 2 pumps total and I think that's more than enough.. Are we talking about the same here? One pump is the amount of cleanser you get by pressing down the pump once? Lol :P

Hi Guys!!!

I've just ordered my Glycolic Acid products, after reading good things about it on this thread and others. Basically, i'm an asian male, 21, have alot of red marks, some over 3 years old, and get a few spots (pustules) every few days. But mainly it's just the red marks that are getting me down. I've ordered the following products from perfectskin.uk.com:

10% Glycolic Cleansing Gel

15% Glycolic Acid Night Cream

Glycolic Acid Peel 30%

I'm going to use the cleanser every morning and night, the night cream every night for the next week, after which i will do my first peel. is this over doing it?

I also have a couple of other questions:

1) Should i come off the cleanser and cream 24hrs before my first peel?

2) can i apply the cleanser and cream on the same night of the peel or should i wait till the folowing day before returning to my routine?

Thank You!!!

yuck I'm breaking out all over! I've been using the cleanser for 3 weeks and I started out with a big breakout and now it's a steady, everyday breakout, which really sucks since I was clear before this. However, it really helps with milia, and it's fine that my blackheads are erupting because maybe they'll go away? Nothing else works for those blackheads, maybe they can just erupt and get it over with! I'll hold out the cleanser for another month or two.

By the way, I barely broke out with the toner...

I want to say that the last 2 days I have used only water to cleanse, and I have barely had any breakout at all. That is amazing.. I thinl that all this shit we put on our face can make us break out, even if it's only 1 product.

OMG! Don't ever use a glycolic peel if you're using any other AHA products, you'll only burn your face and end up with weepy patches! It happened to me a few years ago.

I'm afraid not. Similar products are MD Formulations Glycolic Cleanser:

http://www.skincare-online.com/xcart/produ...t=13&page=1

and Jan Marini Bioglycolic Facial Cleanser:

http://item.express.ebay.co.uk/Health-Beau...cmdZExpressItem

I'm afraid both are quite expensive £23-28. :wall: However, I purchase the Jan Marini one from a US eBay seller who can do it for £15 including delivery.

You should be able to buy either from a beauty salon (usually ones that do minor cosmetic procedures like botox or facial peels). You only need to use about the size of a 1p, so it lasts ages!
