Alpha Skin Care Intensive Renewal Serum

I have a new skin care product to share!! It’s called Alpha Skin Care Intensive Renewal Serum. I used to be a loyal user of the Alpha Skin Care line. My favorite was the AHA cream. They still have the cream in their skin care line, but I lost interest because I wanted more out of a AHA skin care product. Fast forward to today. So recently, I noticed that they have a new skin care product — the AHA serum. I like serums over creams, to be honest. It feels more lightweight on my oily skin. It absorbs better and is more effective for my skin type.

Here are the benefits of this skin care product:

I’ve had a chance to use it ever since I’ve gotten my hands on it. And, I’m really impressed. It contains 14% Glycolic Acid. The AHA serum I was using had 10% (Cos De BAHA). Using Cos De BAHA 3 times a night didn’t make a difference in my skin. I increased it to 4 and eventually to 7. Using it mainly in the AM and sometimes at night when I’m not using BP. The results weren’t that great.

With the Alpha Skin Care Intensive Renewal Serum, I noticed results the first night I used it, and I continued to use it in the AM and PM (when possible). From my experience, the Alpha Skin Care Serum is way better. I could see my skin peeling and stubborn clogged pores being pushed to the surface. My skin tingled after each application. I think it’s time for me to shift gears — move on to a new AHA serum.

I’m still experimenting to see how I’m going to use the Alpha Skin Care Intensive Renewal Serum. But I know for sure that once I’m done with the Cos De BAHA AHA Serum, I’m dropping it from my skin care routine. An updated review on my results when I’m at least halfway done with the bottle or after finishing it! 🙂

I’m bringing this retinol serum back into my skincare routine. I talked about it before…

>>> Anti-Aging Skin Care Products Review

The reason why I’m bringing it back is because the Cos De BAHA Retinol Serum has been *shrugs*. I thought I would give this one another chance. It didn’t break my skin out as I can recall. After using the Cos De BAHA Retinol Serum + other serums. The InstaSkinCare Retinol Serum is actually less sticky than the Cos De BAHA Serums! It also comes in a larger bottle too (2 oz vs 1 oz).

Here are the product claims:

Those are basic claims of any retinol skin care product. I’ve only used the InstaSkincare Retinol Serum twice. Since retinol should only be used at night, I’m going to alternate between BP and my nighttime skin care products to take advantage of the benefits of retinol.
