DHC Renewal AHA Cream  £38.50/ $42.50

Hi everyone, it's been a while since I blogged. as most of you know I had breast cancer last year and then another re-occurance a few months ago so I haven't had much head space for blogging, but I'm back with a long list of really wonderful products that I've been wanting to share for a while.

The first and most wonderful is this DHC Renewal AHA Cream. This is low level lactic acid exfoliator cream that you use at night as a night cream that does it magic as you sleep. It really works so well, you will wake up with much softer, smoother and brighter skin in the morning. They advise to use it once or twice a week, I say it depends on what your skin is like and when you feel you need it. I have been using this ad hoc whenever I feel like my skin needs a boost, or more truthfully when I feel trapped hairs around my chin (lovely) and it makes such a difference. It has a slight odd tingling feeling when you first apply it but that goes within a few seconds, and you don't need very much so it lasts a while which is my pet hate buying products that only last a few weeks. If you don't know about them DHC are a wonderful Japanese brand and one of my favourites. I love so many of their products, most notably the greatest mascara of all time (and I don't say that lightly!)

This renewal cream is a very low level AHA (Alpha hydroxy acid, the ingredient used in peels) so it wont cause any reaction or sensitivities like it would if you went for a peel, but it's certainly enough to make a lovely difference just from using something at home. They do advise wearing sunscreen for a few days afterwards but that's always good advice. (Here is a previous post from 2014 of my favourite sunscreen that I recommend, and my recommendations haven't changed since then). My one tip is don't use this around your eyes, the skin is too thin for any level AHA there and can make bags and wrinkles look bigger. I have been using this for a few months and I truly have raved about it to everyone, huge fan here!
