This lightweight yet emollient AHA body lotion contains 12% glycolic acid formulated at a pH that allows it to exfoliate skin. The formula exfoliates and moisturizes dry skin, but lacks a range of beneficial anti-aging ingredients that elevate it to must-have status. Really, this is as basic as it gets, though Alpha Hydrox deserves kudos for omitting fragrance and ensuring the AHA actually exfoliates. Although this is an excellent drugstore option to consider, those looking for greater benefits from an exfoliating body lotion may want to consider Paula’s Choice Skin Revealing Body Lotion with 10% AHA instead.
Infused with lactic AHA, this lotion exfoliates, hydrates, renews and adds rich moisture to your skin. Leaves skin feeling healthy, smooth and wonderfully soft.

Known primarily for their well-formulated AHA products, Alpha Hydrox got an impressive image update recently. Although the improvements were more visual and packaging-related than formulary-driven, the fact remains that Alpha Hydrox has a formidable range of effective AHA products, all with definitively researched glycolic acid. Kudos to the company for continuing to be direct about the AHA content (and pH) of their exfoliants, something most other lines selling AHA products prefer to keep a mystery. Should the folks behind this brand choose to go back to the drawing board once again, they would do well to reconsider their current jar packaging if they intend to keep adding antioxidants and other beneficial ingredients to their efficacious but still predominantly basic products. Until then, you can rely on Alpha Hydrox for supplying AHA products that really work, and a few other surprises too, all affordably priced and readily available.
