Skin Care Review: Paula's Choice 8% Alpha Hydroxy Solution

by Amy, Charleston, SC USA


Has 8% Glycolic Acid (Alpha Hydroxy Acid), which is a great exfoliator.

MIGHT have a little sting (no irritation), but that just means it's working!!

Best Alpha Hydroxy product I have ever found! After 4 weeks, my skin has a nice healthy glow, smaller pores and my fine lines don't seem as obvious. The solution has 8% AHA, and has a ph of 3.5. Most people don't realize that the ph is as important as the amount of glycolic acid (AHA) in the product. If the ph is too high, or low your skin will not absorb it. Paula has the perfect ph, and the perfect amount of alpha hydroxy acid in her product. I would definitely recommend this to anyone with normal to dry, or combination skin!

Highly recommend.
