These are the reviews which i gathered around the web for easy reading. Take a look. Here are the testimonials on the Alpha Hydrox's official website : Alpha Hydrox User Testimonials
The product of course does not work for everyone..some gave so-so reviews. A teeny percentage gave negative reviews. But what amazed me is that sooooo many people got good results.
I feel overwhelmed reading and pasting the reviews..if you want more of the other products..do read it in the respective websites i've stated :) There are a lot on www.makeupalley.com alone. Fuh!

My own comments about Alpha Hydrox: Here
For Alpha Hydrox 12% AHA Souffle
"When I first bought this product after rave reviews on a popular message board, I was hoping for a miracle. I mean, the price was right and AHA's have been one of the few scientifically sound skin revivers around. I had prevously went to my dermatologist who gave my glytone which was very expensive and a bit more harsh that this product so I was thrilled the first time I used it. Once I had finished my first jar I felt the need to wear less makeup and even saw some reduction in fine lines and hyperpigmentation. I will continue to use this product!"
"My dermatologist recommended an AHA regiment for me, but it was very expensive. I found AHA 12% on the web. I use it day and night for a period of time, but now I use it only at night. My skin is much brighter and clear.
A lightweight, non-greasy anti-wrinkle souffle with 12% AHA, the ultimate in powerful, natural exfoliation. Reduces the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles, smooths, softens & restores skin. Peptides & Green Tea preserve firmness and prevent free radicals from breaking skin down. In a matter of days, your skin will begin to look younger & more radiant with improved texture, elasticity & tone.
I like this product very much. It is the best AHA product in the market which contains 12% Glycolic AHA and effective pH4 in a very reasonable cost. "
" I have been using this product for four weeks now and it took a few days before I noticed a difference in my skin. This product is easy to apply and it made my pores smaller and my skin looks slighty firmer and fresher looking.It isn't harsh on the skin and makes my skin feel smoother and clearer. It says it contains Peptides to help plump up and improve skin's texture, I noticed a slight plumpness in my skin also and I have noticed an improvement in my skin. I have been using it twice daily and my skin looks better and firmer and there is no irritation like some products. I will keep using it and see if I see more improvements in my skin. "
"I wanted to write this because one can spend tons of money on wrinkle products, but this is one that works for me at a good cost! The cream goes on nicely and does not feel greasy. Suggest washing face then waiting 30 minutes..for your skin to balance out the ph. Then dab a SMALL amount on and rub it in. The first week it caused redness and a non-itchy rash of small red bumps. This is to be expected, but hang in there! It took about 3 weeks to start seeing a difference. At 5-6 weeks skin was noticeably smoother and more evened complexion. People mentioned it! I use olay total effects for day, and this at night. Age 53, some fine wrinkles and age spots. "
"I like this product -- Alpha Hydrox AHA Souffle -- a lot. It's realtively cheap, it seems to work in evening out my skin tone and it keeps new acne from forming. It's easy to use, it's not harsh, and it didn't take long for my skin to "get used to it." I wish I could write that it improves the appearance of enlarged pores and acne scars but this hasn't been the case for me. Yet it's difficult to tell if it's improving the scars -- maybe it is. I'm a 40-year old male who is now struggling with years of bad skincare, and just now trying to improve the look of my skin. "
" have tried many products and I can honestly say that this is the best one I have found. it is oil free so it does not break me out and I saw immediate reults in texture and appearance of my skin. Do not go into the sun when you are using it. You can go but your skin will burn very quickly. If you have sensitive skin try using it on a small spot to see if it harms your skin. You can use it twice a day or once a week. Give it a try. Excellent and great price. I am 43 years old and I have used Alpha Hydrox products for the last ten years and I can honestly say that I have used other products that where also good but I find myself always going back to Alpha Hydrox oil free products. "
For Retinol ResQ
"Great product at a great price! My skin has never looked so smooth! Start slowly with this, especially if you tend to have dry or sensitive skin. Apply every other night for a week or two until you have acclimated your skin. Wash your hands after use, and be sure to wait 15 minutes before layering on a moisturizer on the dry areas (don't skip this step)! You should also avoid using an AHA on top of any retinoid, as that will render the retinoid ineffective."
"After years of mild acne with closed comedones(whiteheads), combination/dry/oily face, uneven skin tone, sun spots, uneven skin texture, countless visits to dermatologists and esteticians....I decided to cure my own skin....All throughout the years I was always recommended something glycolic, Retina (even though it did not work for me) and some AHA products....I use this cream at night and it leaves my face in the morning glowing...my skin has not glowed since I was a kid....I am 31...It works well and I look forward to long term results"
"This is a great non-prescription retinol product that came highly recommended. I've been using it for about 6 months now, and it has helped the discoloration I had on the sides of my face, and the slight wrinkling I had at the bridge of my nose. The packaging is also great for a retinol product, because a tube is much better than a jar at keping the ingredients stable. One last thing - ALWAYS use a sunscreen during the day whenever you use products containing retinol."
"Never will I bother with another expensive, hyped over the moon, promise you the world skincare line. This will not make you look 20 if you're 50, but for a gentle effective daily skincare regime it helps tremendously.
I will never go without this product."
"I think this is a great amazingly priced retinol product. My skin has never felt smoother! I do believe that my forehead creases have also diminished. This procuct got a great rating from the book Don't Go To The Cosmetics Counter Without Me book, and they hit it right!"
For Spot Light Targeted Skin Lightener
"I'm truly amazed after using this product for only 3 weeks. I've had dark patches on my face for years and thought I just had to live with that. I've tried all types of make-up and foundation to cover it, but that never lasted. A friend told me about this product and after only 2 weeks, I saw a difference. I will definitely continue using this product. I barely need any coverage on my face now to even out my skin-tone -- that's how I KNOW it's working! I would recommend this to anyone who has similar sun-damaged, dark spots on their face."
"I've been using this product for about 3 weeks now and couldn't believe that after only 2 weeks, I see a big difference in my skin tone. I had dark sun-damaged spots (and from taking birth control pills) that I thought I'd never get rid of. I used so much make-up trying to even out my skin-tone and now I hardly need any!! I am amazed at how quickly this product is working. I will definitely continue to use."
"I completed a series of IPL treatments several months ago and still had several age spots and brown patches from sun damage. I've used this for a month and the brown patches are gone and the age spots are considerably lightened. I should have skipped the IPL and saved my money. I cannot recommend it enough!"
"I bought this for my husband, who has developed dark spots on his cheek bones in the last two years. He has been using it every night for a little over a week and we are already seeing positive results. I didn't think it would work, like many other products. But I can see the dark spots lightening up already."
For Sheer Silk Moisturizer SPF 15
"I use the product under makeup daily. I also use it at night before bed. It's light and non greasy. I began using Alpha Hydrox products when I was in my early 40's when I noticed small wrinkles developing around my eyes. They were greatly diminished after using the product for some time. Then I quit for awhile, and they came back so I went back to using the product. I am 59 now and most people don't believe it. I believe in the Alpha Hydrox products and will continue to use and recommend them. I like this particular line better than the original line because of the lighter scent and the lighter weight of the products. The cleanser is fabulous, also."
"This creme has a very high level of UVA (antiaging) sunscreen, zinc oxide -- far more than very expensive grands, but doesn't make your face look white at all. I've tried many different moisturizers with sunscreen, both high priced and budget, and this is the best. Very reasonably priced too."
"The first time I bought this I failed to notice the instructions for the pump inside the package and thought it was broken. Used it anyway, but would have been easier if I'd seen how to do so properly. Very light lotion with SPF. I have extremely oily skin and am prone to acne. Have had no problems with this lotion. Use with the glycolic souffle."
For Alpha Hydrox Oil Free Formula
"This is one of the best products that I have ever used for my acne prone skin. I used the souffle previously, and though it worked well, it made my skin feel greasy and breakout occasionally. I switched to the oil-free formula, and have found that it works better for me. It prevents breakouts and has made my skin clear and smooth. I use it every other day because the AHA is bit strong for my sensitive skin, but I have noticed a great improvement. I've even noticed that old acne scars are starting to fade the longer that I use this product. I highly recommend it."
"I've been using this for about a month and I really like it. It seems to clarify my skin and help it feel a bit more firm. It is deffinately suited for oily skin types. It's great for warm weather but I may try something a little more moisturizing now that the days are getting colder. I want to try the souffle next."
