Has anyone had any experience using a glycolic acid at-home chemical peel to treat their PHI?

I just bought a peel (70%- 50% glycolic acid, with the other 50% made up of kojic acid (i assume 20%), licorice root extract, vitamin c, and another ingredient I cant remember (something like ua vu or something) that is a skin lightening ingredient. So far I have done 2 applications (diluted a bit with moisturizer, as the instructions advised doing at first), once a week and haven't noticed any results, though I wasn't expecting any this soon.

So has anyone had experience with this peel, it seems a lot of people are saying lactic acid is better for PHI, but glycolic is more intense so would it be better?

Any info would be great!

Being more intense isn't always better. You should try lactic acid first and then glycolic if you still aren't happy with it.

Just wondering... have you ever tried just the AHA 10% lotion before? I've been working on getting rid of red marks for over a year and this is the only thing that's made a considerable difference, and relatively quick. Same main ingredient as your Peel, Glycolic Acid, but it's not as harsh on the skin.
