Review for Glyco-A cream with AHA glow face wash

I have been fascinated towards Glycolic acid for a while now. So, I thought it is better to create a new page and divide it according to concentration level.

I was always very curious towards Glycolic acid. I did lots of online study and got very mix reviews. For some results were very amazing and for some that was a real disaster. Maximum reviews were from white skin. I have tried to find out for Indian or brown color skin, there were only very few, which were not actually reviews just the information.
I have been to Kaya Skin Clinic and VLCC as well, but they seem to be very greedy without caring of anyone’s skin. Kaya Skin Clinic advises me to go for Cosmo peel. I asked them, which acid they will use. They said TCA which was a big no-no for me for initial stage. I only wanted to go for Glycolic peel and when they came to know about my knowledge related to chemicals they showed less interest. As they knew they can’t fool me.
Finally I decide to start by myself with low level concentration.
Glyco-A (12% Glycolic acid) cream base: I have applied it during the night. For initial 5 minutes there was sensation which irritated me every time, I applied.

According to instructions, I should use it at bed time for one week and then twice a day. I follow the instructions for 20 days and I didn’t find it useful. I have stopped using it.


Claim: Removing wrinkles and improve texture of skin
Cost: Rs 149 for 30g
Rating: 2/5
Pros: It removed access oil of my skin
Cons: irritation.
Will I use it again: No

AHAGLOW Face wash: Simultaneous I am using AHAGLOW face wash with 1% Glycolic acid, to maintain.



Now gradually I have decided to get for higher concentration like 25%. I have order it online. As soon as I will use it will update on blog.Just a quick update- I have tried Glycolic peel with 25% concentration  Please  see the review under Review for IQ Natural Glycolic Acid

  2. Yeahh… I know and some bitch have stolen my face wash, some people are so cheap even can't afford 100 bugs..

  3. Where do I get this face wash from?. I have just started using Glycolic -A cream at bedtime. I have lots of pimple scars on my face and have very oily skin. I stay in Leh Ladakh. I m 32 years old…

    1. Hi Maya,
      You can get this facewash from any medical store. If you are using Glycolic-A cream then it is good to use glycolic-acid base face wash to maintain.

  4. Hie..iam 22 years old.As per doctor prescription iam using Glycol 6 since 2months..but i did'nt find any improvement on my skin where i can see lot of small holes on my skin & its very disgusting when i see my face in if i use Glycol-A & Ahaglow face wash will i get any side effects???

    1. Hi Pramod,
      AHAGLOW facewash remove extra oil from your skin, therefore it is very safe to use for oily skin. Initially you can use Glycol-A 12% then increase the percentage of Glycolic acid. Side effect of Glycolic acid is usually just some mild redness and irritation.

    please help me out,i dont want to go any doctor anymore…thanks

    1. Hi Ricky,
      Whenever you are using any form of glycolic acid you should avoid sun, because you skin become more sensitive and it is prone to get tan 10 times quicker.

    2. thanks nazia…
      i live in australia…i work in nights and i sleep in day time.i hardly see sun …i dont know what happened though??
      do u have any idea??my skin is so tanned..i want to get rid of this asap..please share any idea if u have…
      i appriciate ur help..

    3. Hi Ricky,
      If you don't go in Sun, then you have good opportunity to try AHA peels. It will surely make your skin lighter. Again you have to avoid sun for long duration.
      Contact good dermatologist, or if you want to try it at home you have to be extra careful, however I will not suggest these peel to try at home because if you leave it for longer duration (duration would be depend on your skin sensitivity- for some long duration can be 2-3 mins and for some it can be 7-10 mins), your skin can be burnt.

    4. thanks nazia..
      i will check with him…i dont want to damage my skin anymore..
      i really appriciate your help..
      may god bless u and take care..
      if u dont mind can i ask u where r u from??

    glyco A is only fr oily skin?

    1. Sorry Bushra, for late reply.
      For Delhi I will suggest you to use drinking water to wash your face, secondly you can use Glyco A for oily skin, but I will suggest to visit the dermatologist first as he will examine the severity of you pimples and scars and he will suggest something better.

  11. I have dark spots on my face…how to remove them as fast as possible….i'am getting sick of these…please suggest the best to get rid of these….

    1. If you have serious problem, then I will suggest you two things apart from seeing a dermatologist –
      First- go for the glycolic peels
      Second- have healthy food, trust me healthy food works much better than any cosmetic. Drink juices especially pomegranates and oranges. You will find the difference.
      You would be spending lots of money on products try juices and healthy food for 2 weeks and you will surely see the difference.

    2. ohkk…thnk u sooo much…tell me something about glycolic peels….

    1. Sorry for the delayed, have you been to the skin a. Because acne is not easy to deal with. My suggestion is- consult with doctor before trying anything on your face.

  15. very bad dark spots both sides of face and on nose i m having fair skin so it looks very bad I am using Glyco A and clearz plus mixing with apply for skin. But day by day skin getting thinner and no permanant improvement i m frustrated what to do i m 27my skin is very sensitive.

    1. Hi Sriraman,
      I know it is late to reply. You should not use Glyco A, as it seems your skin is getting to much affected, rather trying any other product visit to Doctor or alternatively you can use Mederma, it is slow however effective.

  16. Hi I m jhansi as per my physician's direction I m using Glyco-A but my skin is becoming more dark I m finding small holes n white patches now.I had told my physician I am working lady n I have to go in sun,plz suggest me what should I do?

    1. Its big NO if you go out in Sun on daily basis. STOP using it. I will suggest you to try some home remedies instead of medical treatment. Because so far I haven't found anything in pharma which doesn't make your skin sun sensitive.

  17. So please refer me what should I do for my skin?

  18. Try Tanovate GN, but Alternatives days

  19. I hve pores…n inside pores i hve black dead cells…hw do i cure it

    1. Hi Jignesh,
      Facial can be a good option for such blackheads.

  20. Hey there

I m using AHA glow face wash + Garnier anti marks scrub alternatively. Should I.consult dermatologist now or anyone have any.other idea or evr.faced similarly ? Reply ASAP

    1. Hi,

      You can use Mederma for such kind of marks it is very effective.

  21. Hi
    I hav few acne scars n I started using Glyco 6 n applied al over my face at night . Please let me know if this safe as I m using this without prescription

    1. Hello Sidica,
      Its always better to take any kind of skin treatment under the supervision of skilled Doctor. However, Glyco 6 is not very strong, it can be used without prescription, but your skin is going to be very sensitive to the sun.

  22. hai this is vinod varma i was faced acne scars.main problem black marks on my face from 2 to 3 years i was used number of creams but no use now i am using glyco 6 please suggest good product for pimple marks……nazia mam

    1. Glycol-A 10% is safe however more than 10% concentration is not safe without the supervision or if you are confident about it, otherwise you may land up into more permanent burning scars.

  24. GEL type facewashes are not suitable in my skin. am looking for cream based facewash with Glyco. Is there anything please refer.

    1. Hi Irfan,
      Sorry for the late reply just busy in my exams. Have you used it, how it is working on your skin. I am not sure if it will help to get rid of pimples marks as I didn't have pimples. However as Jenny suggested below you can look for the review of another product and see if it works for you. However, I have recently used 'Skin Shine' cream for marks, it is working good but shouldn't be used for long.

  32. I suggest you have a look at products made from the Phytoceramides. It contains ingredients to act as anti wrinkle and anti aging cream, at the same time stimulates skin regeneration and replenish daily moisture loss. Meriance is rich in Amino Acids and minerals, stimulating skin rejuvenation with the effect of a smooth, soft and healthy skin.

    I am using glyco A cream. when I use it regularly it shows shows results. However when I discontinue my skin gets dark again. I want to know is it fine to use this product for long term any side effects later on.

    2. becosules vitamin c capsules if we take one will be good to create a sheild against tan internally from blood ..and if we use glyco A and bychance if ww out in sun in urgency then will it be ok ..?
