Hi guys!

Quick question on the Acne.org AHA+.

I gave Dan's AHA a go last night. A face full of AHA as my moisturizer. I have seen many a post on here that led me to believe it would sting or something but I didn't get that feeling at all. Does this mean that it isn't working?

I have been using another type of AHA before this. A generic gel formula I bought locally. It still had 10% glycolic acid. Though that AHA never stung, I really did think changing to Dan's AHA would give me that stinging sensation.

So, am I just lucky or could there be something wrong my the AHA+ I got?

Yeah, I had minimal stinging on current acne spots. You used it "undiluted" without any other moisturizers? Hmm, I started off with a little and then worked my way up.

Question... does it expire? I've had mine for about a year because I use it inconsistently. Do you think I should purchase a new one??

I think you're lucky because AHA never stung for me from day one and because of that I can apply it every night mixed in with Cetaphil face moisturizer.

4 weeks into it and now my skin feels so much softer and has evened out my skin tone pretty well. I also see an improvement on PIH fading away but not completely yet.

I'm still getting the occasional pimples but I have to say the red marks are not as prominent and they heal much quicker since jumping on Dan's AHA.

Hope that helps with your decision to continuing using it.

That's good to know! I used it once with moisturizer and once without. Both times I didn't experience any stinging sensation.

The bottle I have has an expiry date at the bottom. Mine doesn't expire until October of next year.

It only stung for me on the first application, that and I have extremely sensitive skin. You're just lucky! It should still work as normal. :)

That's great. I've been mixing my AHA with moisturizer as well. And then every couple of days I go for a full face of AHA.
