SkinMedica AHA BHA Cream Review

skinmedia-aha-bha-creamSkinMedica AHA BHA cream is a very potent formulation (15%) that is geared towards those looking for maximum exfoliation benefits.

Let’s take a closer look at both the company and product…

SkinMedica
Today, this company is one of the most popular when it comes to specialty skin care products. Their product lines are considered to be on the mid to high end range, with prices ranging from around $20 all the way up to more than $100. From what I was able to gather on their website, the company works entirely within the dermatological field. This is nice, because some companies like Olay (owned by Proctor & Gamble) I feel are trying to do too many things at once, so it’s nice to know there are still some companies that choose to do one thing (skin care) and do it right.

SkinMedica AHA BHA Cream
This is an interesting product in that it combines both alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) as well as beta hydroxy acid (BHA)… hence the name AHA BHA cream. It uses a very potent formulation of 15%. If you are familiar with alpha hydroxy creams, you will know this is on the higher end of the spectrum. So you can probably expect to have temporary tingling when using this product, or at least at first.

Size: The product comes in a plastic bottle which is 2 ounces. Therefore, this is slightly more than the typical 1.7 ounce you see with creams.

Benefits: Acting as a strong, duel AHA/BHA formulation, this cream is said to be helpful in removing dead skin cells from the skins surface, and therefore helping your face reveal new, fresh skin underneath. As all alpha hydroxy cream does, it should be beneficial in helping you fade and diminish dark spots. It might even help improve the texture of the skin. This product also contains added vitamins and nutrients to help rejuvenate the skin.

Verdict
Although I have not had a chance to try SkinMedica AHA BHA cream yet myself, it definitely sounds like a promising product. I know my experiences with SkinMedica skin care products have been positive, and I also know that this is a strong concentration which should have a potent effect. Also the price is on the lower end, which is helpful. Therefore this is a product which I would feel confident recommending.
