I used these products for years. The cleanser, toner and a lotion. Then all the sudden I couldn't find the toner and it seemed the packaging changed. I found it on a website, but I'm wondering if there products are lame now, ha ha!!

Hi Annie,
They reformulated the products and imho they seem even better. I primarily use the cleanser, twice a week or so and once a week, the new souffle. At one time, Ulta had the older products as well. And the website for AH also had them. Maybe that has changed. Good luck.

Yeah, my local Ulta only stocks a limited selection of the older formula.

In your opinion, how does this stack up against some of the spa lines and other skin care lines? The price is certainly low!

I think that they are good products for the price, better than most supermarket brands. I use the Souffle on a semi-regular basis. Its one of the star products for me but I know people who like the whole line.

I'm using the Enhanced Lotion but for my back due to helping with my bacne and it's slowly working. It was so hard to find but I found it at Drug Emporium. They only order a few at a time. Ulta didn't even carry the lotion and I was about to order it online. I love the lotion and haven't tried anything else.

Does anyone use the AH combined with other products? I'm so new at this, I don't know what is safe/ok to mix. The AH couldn't possibly address all my issues. I need an eye cream and something for loss of elasticity, which I don't think AH could tackle. Any suggestions?

I use the souffle on the weekends and love it. I've used various products within the line and been pleased with them all.

Annie, I used to use the Souffle daily but have backed off a little on glycolic acids and I'm using a microfiber cloth for exfoliation now. I love the AH cleanser, it's wonderful so I still use it twice a week. I've always used other lines as well. I'd recommend the True Radiance eye cream. A lot of people are seeing some real tightening with it and it's fairly inexpensive but contains more actives than most of the higher end lines. www.trueradiance.net.I'm also using several of that lines skin tightening serums and the vitamin c and a serum.

BluesHeart - I just looked into the True Radiance and will order tonight.
I will try to find the AH locally, if not maybe order online. Should I use the Souffle every 3 days or so? Then follow up with a moisturizer, serums etc?????

Oh boy. I'm no pro here. My skin tends to be on the dry and thin side which is why I'm laying off the glycolic acids a little. What kind of skin and issues are you wanting to work with?

I use the AHA souffle about every other day or so, sometimes every 3 days. I love it, but think every day would be too much for me since I use Renova every night.

Is the souffle supposed to be used in the am? Do you still use Vit C in the am and if so, before or after?

i use it in the a.m. b/c I use the Renova at night, but I'm sure you could use it at night. I don't use Vit. C currently so it's not an issue for me. I love it though, mainly b/c it doesn't sting at all, and ever since I've started with it, my skin has been great, no irritation from it. and its CHEAP!!!
