Was thinking of trying MD Formulations cleanser found here: http://www.essentialdayspa.com/md-formulations-mens-delu-p_3222.htm

Any comments? Any better AHA cleansers out there? I don't care about price as long as the cleanser rinses clean as has the correct pH.

thanks

I like the bag in that set! Ok, sorry, got side tracked there Embarassed

The MDF glycolic cleanser is a good one - I used it when I bought a combo skin starter pack and had really good results in terms of reduction of bumps under the skin etc

I have also used the glycolic cleanser from PCA Skin (for oily/problem skin) and I prefer that one because it felt less drying. However, what irritates me about PCA Skin is that they don't list concentration of the AHAs in the cleanser (or their other products). All they say is "created with a higher level of AHA for the problem skin patient" - not good enough!

I have used MD Formulations cleanser a while ago, and stopped that brand due to texture and lack of results (but expensive cost in AUstralia). I have recently purchased the Emergin C multi-fruit cleanser, and I think its fantastic, I prefer the feel of my skin, the cleanliness but not tight feeling, after I use this one. It washes off brilliantly, and doesn't sting. I felt it was way better than the MDF, but as I said, its been a while (two years) since I used it.

I cant tell you what the ph is for the emerginc mulit-fruit cleanser (AHA), but EDS sells it, they might know.

Hope this helps. Smile

In order for AHA, gylcolic acid, to be effective you need to look for it in concentrations of at least 8%. I use a gylcolic gel after washing which has worked out well for me.
Take a look at the SkinCareResourceCenter.com for educational information on skin care. I think you'll find it really helpful in knowing what product ingredients are clinically proven to be effective and what concentration you should be looking for in the skin care products you purchase!

I use md forte's glycare cleanser and I really love it. md forte and md formulations are very similiar, but md forte is a bit stronger.

I started using MD formulations (12% glycolic)10 years ago when my hormones started to cause me to break out. I love it and wouldn't dare change. When you got something that works, stick with it.

I used MD before and I thought it was great but switched for two reasons. I used to buy it at a spa which was closed so I couldn't find it in my country anymore. My dermatologist told me that PHA was better so I switched to Neostrata which also has a complete line of products. They have AHA stuff and PHA stuff.
