well i just got my package of AHA+ today and im really excited to use it tonight

but i have a few questions

1. do i have to use it only at night because ive been reading a few threads and they say they only use it at night

2. I use it after moisturizing or replace moisturizing with AHA+?

3. How much should i use? Less than BP all over or as spot treatment?

4. I was hoping it was for acne scars and red marks, will it fade them away?

5. does it work for you guys?

thank you..im new heh

1. It doesn't really matter, just keep in mind that when you are using AHA's your skin will be more sensitive to the sun, so wear sunscreen each day.

2. You can use it in place of moisturizer, or you can apply moisturizer over it if you need to.

3. I recommend starting out with a small amount, like a pea-sized blob, and just go from there.

4. We've gotten some feedback that it is helping some people with their red marks. For true scarring, I doubt it will do much unless there are very very superficial and shallow.

5. My skin loves AHA's.

1.After cleansing i put on the AHA+ (you can choose to either put the bp on first or the aha+ don't think there is much of a difference...i guess its harder to get the bp on afterward, but really no big deal).

2. you are now done, the AHA+ has moisturizer in it, no need for adding more.

The AHA+ works great for red marks...as for scars..i have no idea.

* I use the AHA+ every other day because i find using it every night is too much for my skin. You may be different, but it is worth considering since you a just starting it out.

so this means monday i use it at night

then tuesday i do the normal regimen

then wednesday i use it at night and so on (does that make sense...oh and i only use it at night).

Hope that helped a bit.

Good luck.

Did not help me with my hyperpigmentation after 1 month usage. So I discontinued using AHA+ as the increased sun sensitivity was not a side effect I was willing to live with.
