Is it generally better to use AHA after BP or just AHA alone? If its together with BP, how long after I apply the BP should I wait before applying the AHA?

yes, I've read it but I'm more keen on getting other people's opinions. Also, I'm curious of AHA alone and BP + AHA effects.

For my skin, trying to use AHA+ and BP together on my face was a horrible decision and completely screwed up the good results I was getting just using the three main products. My face got red, something I didn't have a problem with previously and the dryness and flakiness came back with a vengeance oddly enough. Not to mention I broke out with lots of whiteheads. Maybe I used it too much and didn't give it enough time, but either way, I'd only recommend using it 2-3 nights per week at most. With BP or without, I don't think it matters. If it were me, I'd go without applying the BP for the nights I use AHA+ simply because that combo is too strong for my face. You just have to experiment a bit and find a nice balance that fits your skin's needs.

ok, if i'm using both, I only apply the AHA about 30 mins after the bp because I'm afraid it will interfere with BP effectiveness. Is this ok?

and I rarely use both together in the day and only very seldom at nights, and even so, its mostly spot treatment
