They are both oil-free, fragrance-free, and both contain the same amount of AHA (10%).
Neither is particuarly better. It just depends on your skin's needs.
The creme is obviously more moisturizing, but still not heavy. The gel contains sea kelp extract, which is pore clogging to some people, but the creme contains stearic acid, which is also pore clogging to some people.
I've used both with no problems, and I'm acne prone. It just depends on the person. It's a matter of trial and error.
I've noticed some people have ordered 30/50/70 % Glycolic Acid Peels from ebay. I was wandering if these would be a better alternative than using alpha hydrox 10 enhanced cream AHA for scars/blemishes & redness
They are different formulations, as the AH Enhanced Creme is not a "peel." The higher percentages MAY give slightly faster results, but they also have a much higher probability of causing irritation, and possibly even burning your face (as it's an acid, of course). This can cause massive redness, peeling, and even more scar tissue down the road. But it's really your choice. http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/idea.gif
what's the difference between a peel and cream? I was reading the info about the 30/50/70% Glycolic Peel and it said that it should not even be applied that often. In order words, there should be certain interval of taking it. But if i take the 10% Alpha Hydrox Enhanced cream, it doesn't seem bad to be applying it everyday. If I am using the 10% Alpha hydrox Enhanced creme, is that the same as taking a Glycolic Acid but in a lower percentage?
i just ordered the 30 % Glycolic Peel. I heard that while on a Glycolic Peel, it was bad to combine it with other AHA products, so I guess that if i start the Glycolic Peel (which would be once a week), I would stop the Alpha Hydrox 10 % Enhanced Creme. However, I don't know whether i should stop the Olay regenerist. The olay regenerist works well with mousturization.
