Question ALPHA HYDROX OIL FREE FORMULA FOR RED MARKS??

Have any of you used Alpha Hydrox oil free formula to help with red marks?? I ordered some and it should come today. Is it effective without breaking you out?? My wedding reception is in 5 weeks and I want some of these spots faded!! (In the day time I use Neutrogena Healty Skin lotion which has worked well but I want something stronger at night.) I tried the Paula;s choice AHA and I felt like it as making me greasier and making me get blackheads! So I hope this works without breaking me out. Also, can you put on acne medication under the AHA at night???

In my experience, this product is excellent for getting rid of red marks. However, it is similar to the PC AHA (though not the exact same ingredients), so if you didn't like that one then you might not like this one.

I believe acne medications are supposed to be applied after the AHA.

When I used Obagi, the AHA cream accelerated cell turnover (thus palliating my red marks, ultimately), but it both stimulated oil production and increased overall redness. Considering the propinquity of your wedding date, the AHA treatment seems inadvisable. Estee Lauder's Idealist lotion kept my skin smooth and toned down the redness, but it was expensive, and I donb't even know if they make it anymore.
