Glycolic Acid Toner


I currently use Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid Toner 8% and Paula's choice BHA 2% for my occasional pimples and to keep my skin looking bright/prevent aging. Recently the PTR 8% glycolic had been discontinued. I was thinking to switch to the maxi pads by PTR that are 10%glycolic and 2%BHA, does anyone have experience with this product?

Anything else you would recommend as a great alternative? I have tried the ordinary glycolic acid but I felt it didn't give me that same glow as PTR. I tried Paula's choice 8% glycolic but found it to be sticky to sleep in at night.

So I'm looking for something not sticky, toner-like consistency I can use at bedtime.


Thank you! 

Re: Glycolic Acid Toner

Hi, @Sandy662 !  I've been using Caudalie Vinoperfect Brightening Glycolic Essence 5.0 oz/ 150 mL for years.  It has 3% glycolic acid.  I also have a bottle of Good Molecules Glycolic Acid Toner available at Ulta, which also has 3% glycolic acid.  The two you mentioned are the only ones I know with more.
