alpha hydrox 12% glycolic AHA souffle

don't waste your money on microdermabrasion. exfoliate w/ AHA!


anti-wrinkle, fragrance-free, oil-free

this is a wonderful product. it may be a little harsh on your skin in the beginning for some people (like me), but it's one product that i can say that has definitely improved the texture of my skin. AHA stands for "alpha hydroxy acid" - it is an exfoliant. i usually use it @ night before bed and i wake up with soft, exfoliated skin without the need for scrubbing! one thing to note is that you HAVE TO use sunscreen (during the daytime) when using an AHA product, as it causes your skin to be more sun sensitive. this shouldn't be a surprise to people who have used ANY anti-aging or acne skin products.

the only problem i have w/ this souffle is its packaging. i hate products where you have to dip your fingers into it.

here are the basics:
Application: smooth, sinks in to skin (non-greasy), but tingly (kinda like you got hairdye on your skin -- not a great feeling, but if you can endure it, it'll be worth it)
Price: $14.99 - $15.99 (cheap!)
Where to Buy: neotericcosmetics.com, drugstore.com
Overall Rating: 5/5 stars!
Tip: if you have sensitive skin, make sure you do a skin test before using it on your whole face. recommended areas to test: right under your ear OR on the lighter part of your wrist (underneath).
