I switched to the Eucerin after 10 days or so and my face felt tingly for a few minutes for the first 2 days of using it. After that, no more tingle lol. Try it out and see what happens. But, you should be ok.

I would wait until you're at least 30 days into the regimen because if you're still getting used to the BP and you put in an AHA (Eucerin Skin Renewal), you'll cause more irritation. If you're already used to the BP (no burning/redness/irritation), then I'd say it's safe to switch to put in an AHA.

An AHA should reduce the flakiness (dead skin cells) and help with dryness, too. Works well for almost everyone, except me. :doh: AHA dries me out badly and creates more flakes, I'm one of the only ones though, so theres good chance it'll work for you.

I started using the skin renewal stuff at about a month and a half into it. It didnt cause me any kind of irritation. My eucerin is the one with lactic acid, which is supposed to be pretty gentle. Is this what you have? It works good. I like it for the daytime under my makeup because its more thin and milky where as my neutrogena is thicker and tends to clump under my makeup more. I save it for the night time.
