Topix Gly Sal line has pads (5% or 10% glycolic and 2% salicylic) and also cleanser.
I know Dr. Dense has a cleanser with both AHA and BHA, not sure if the AHA is glycolic or another.

PTR's Max Complexion Correction pads are 2% salicylic/10% glycolic, and I believe the Gentle Complexion Correction are .5% salicylic/5% glycolic.
PTR's Unwrinkle Peel Pads are glycolic/salicylic plus lactic.

I think Neutrogena Pore Refining Toner has AHA and BHA in it.

Why those two ingredients in particular?
I'll help you look...

AHAs and BHAs work best at different pH's so a product containing both glycolic acid and salicyclic acid would not give you the best benefits of both worlds :-( besides that, AHAs cause sensitivity to the sun so it is best that they're used at night... I'm just sayin'

You do not want one product containing BOTH products, as a previous poster mentioned. Each of these are effective at different pH's so it would be useless. I am an esthetician, so I am telling you the truth. You could spend lots of money on some of the stuff previous posters mentions or you could go to Paulas Choice website where she sells both at good prices. I use Paulas AHA 8% gel, she also has the skin revealing lotion (10% AHA). She also sells BHA's in either liquid, gel or lotion and it is available in 1% or 2% salicylic acid. All her exfoliants are 4 ounces and $18.95 which will last you a good long time and a reasonable price. I have used her BHA's in the past and they work great but I buy Stridex pads (2% salicylic acid) for $3.99 for 55 pads, they also sell those pads in the 1% salicylic acid solution also for those of you who may be sensitive. I like the Stridex pads because they are cheaper and I like the pads for application. Mine is in the red jar, just make sure you read the back and it doesn't have alcohol in it. I just rub them over my face and neck and let dry then I apply my AHA. Alpha Hydrox also makes a 14% cream that is good, and it is the correct pH. I NEVER buy my AHA's or BHA's from anywhere else (unless they list the pH) because most companies do not tell you what the pH is and they will NOT work if not the correct pH. AHA has to be between a pH of 3.5-3.8 to exfoliate and BHA's need to be between 3.2-3.6 to work.

I wish there was a way to know you're in the good old days before you've actually left them. Narddog
