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
Pros: It removed access oil of my skin
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
