Acid exfoliating products that don't leave a stickiness to skin

I've tried many acid pre-moistened pads and liquid toner products with a claim to be like an acid peel. However, my skin feels sticky after I used these products. Just tried tarte Mini Knockout Tingle Treatment Toner 1.7 oz/ 50 mL  and my face is sticky. I tried smoothing in Sunday Riley UFO facial dry oil, but the tackiness remained. Not only does it not feel good on my skin, but I'm afraid my foundation would be patchy. Any suggestions for an acid peel treatment that doesn't leave a sticky feeling on skin and works good under makeup is appreciated. Thank you

I use the glycolic acid toner from the Inkey List and I don’t find it sticky

@Jbird1999 I use 10% glycolic acid by Alpha Skin Care and don't get stickiness.  I've also used Paula's Choice Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Exfoliant 3.3 oz/ 100 mL and didn't get stickiness.

 

One option, though, would be to use the AHA products at night so that they don't interfere with your foundation 🙂
