Glycolix Facial Cream 10%, 15%, and 20%
Size: 1.6 oz
Who It's For
See above - depends on the strength. Some with sensitive skin will still get irritated even with the 10% so try cautiously at first if you are. Unscented.
Dr. Irwin's Product Review
Glycolic creams are still an excellent way to achieve results ........and especially if you consider their price point, which is lower than other anti-aging products and some acne products. The trick is to get a good formulation and know how to use them. Start with the 10% and work up slowly.
10% - helps with sun damage on the neck and chest, great for more sensitive skin, with acne especially on other acne meds, and I use at night once a week or so as a break from retinoids
15% - See above, If you have no problems with the 10%, try going up to this. Also, excellent for dry areas on the body like the lower legs.
20% - If you have very oily skin, this may be the right one for you. This also works super well for men who get the ingrown hairs with shaving (use nightly - NOT after shaving). Great on the body (not for neck and chest in women) for those extra dry areas.
How to Use
Generally start lower and work up.
