I don't think that you are really using all that much acid at all. It all depends on how sensitive your skin is.

I personally use 2% SA cleansing wipes every morning like you, and a cleanser with both GA and SA at night and resurfacing cream with both GA and SA also every night.

Plus I want to get my hands on some 30% GA to help with my scars and work my way up to maybe 70%... I'm a bit of an acid junky I guess wink.gif

So as long as your skin is improving and not being overly irritated than I think it's fine
