If you have oily skin, this product is perfect. Initially, I purchased it from my local pharmacy. When they stopped carrying it, I started ordering it directly from the company. I have used it for years and would not think of giving up my morning and evening applications. As with your other reviewers, people can never guess my age.

I am a few months from 65. I have 'no wrinkles'. Using wrinkle cream at night and renewal gel mornings since mid 90's. Thanks Alpha.

Been using for 20+ years - my friends/family think this is one of the reasons my skin still looks good at the age of 71. :-)

Very good for my skin and recommended by my dermatologist.
Renewal Gel is the best product for my skin

I have used the oil free gel since I was in my 40's. At that time the gel helped stop the breakouts. Now in my 60's, my skin looks much younger than it would otherwise. I"ll never stop using Alpha Essential Renewal Gel.

I've Reyes other AHA and I haven't found one better than this gel AHA. I've been using it for 7 years and I am 64 years old and I'm always get compliments on my skin.
Love it, Love it

I have used this Gel for many years. I use it because it's not oily and when I use it, it keeps my oily skin from getting oily and ruining my make up. It's great I love it.
Clearer skin to the rescue!!!

This stuff works! I have only been using it for a few weeks. My breakouts are minimal and my skin is not irritated.

I began using Alpha Hydrox after reading about the line in Paula Begoun's book, "Don't Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me". Since the book came out in the 90's, I guess that definitely makes me a long-time customer. Having struggled with cystic acne since my late teens, finding the Oil Free Treatment, (now called Essential Renewal Gel), was a godsend. (Before the gel came along, I used the 8% lotion. Both products have kept my skin nearly blemish-free for decades.) I'm now 56 - and even though I no longer suffer from breakouts, I'm still using the products. My skin looks great, and no one believes me when I tell them I'm in my fifties. While the name may have changed to Alpha Skin Care, the quality of the products is still the same: excellent. Quite simply; Alpha Skin Care makes some of the best AHA products on the market.
First time trying!

This is my first time trying this product but I like it so far. My skin doesn't have the oily look and feel like lotion.
