Recs to find my skin's best chemical exfoliator?

I'm researching chemical exfoliating products to add to my skin cycling routine, 2x per week. My skin is very sensitive, red, acneic, and dehydrated. I have an uneven texture from acne scarring, dry patches, and enlarged pores. I also have some hyperpigmentation from old acne. Im looking for something that gives me good exfoliation but won't make my face burn, itch, dry out further, or get redder.

Ive identified a few good options but I'm not sure which might work best for my skin's needs. Any thoughts/recommendations for the below? (Open to other recs as well as long as it appears here in the database and comes in under $20)

Products I'm considering:

• Versed Doctors Visit Instant Resurfacing Mask

• Versed The Shortcut Overnight Facial

• The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5% + HA

• The Inkey List Azealic Acid Serum

The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 5% + HA 2%

I've been loving the turmeric illuminating solution from Cocokind!



I have been using The Ordinary Lactic Acid 5% since a few months twice a week (pm) and my sensitive skin loves it. Just ordered Versed Skin - Doctor’s Visit Instant Resurfacing Mask and will try to incorporate it into my routine once a week. Hope my skin will tolerate it…


I tried The ordinary lactic acid, it’s a amazing for sensitive skin. And don’t need to use it daily like product states
