Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Lotion 10% Glycolic AHA Review

Lately my skin has not been cooperating with me. I had a few pretty bad breakouts over the past few months and just couldn't seem to find the culprit of what was causing them. So I've been on a mission to find new products to add into my skincare routine and maybe switch it up a little bit. I like to use products that do not contain dyes or artificial fragrances, I came across a treatment called Alpha Hydrox Enhanced Lotion, it contains 10% Glycolic acid, which helps reduce and prevent fine lines, wrinkles, & acne. It also helps to restore & maintain younger, healthier, more radiant-looking skin, and improve the elasticity of the skin. Not only does this product help with breakouts, but also prevents aging, killing two birds with one stone!

I have fair, sensitive, combination skin so when I applied this product it stung a little bit. The stinging goes away within about a minute so it does not bother me at all, I actually like that it stings a little bit because it helps me to know the product is doing its job. I have only been using this product at night because it does cause some sensitivity to the sun. I cleanse my face as usual using purpose face wash, then I use simple's micellar water as a toner, and apply the alpha hydrox to my entire face as a treatment. I then wait until the treatment dries and then I apply my cetaphil lotion on top for some extra moisture (because this treament can tend to be a little drying). So far after using this product for only a few days I have noticed my skin texture is ALOT smoother, the breakout that I had is starting to dry up, & I have not gotten ANY new breakouts! Overall I would say this is an awesome product for those who have a similar skin type to mine (Sensitive, Combination), it will definately become a new staple in my skincare routine.
