Acid Toning Part One

If you are a new reader (WELCOME!) you can read more about the importance of acids on the cheat sheets over there—–>

The rest of you will be au fait with my thinking so let’s crack on with the products in Part 1.

P50/V/W/1970 Biologique Recherche – Lactic, usnic, salicylic and ascorbic acids. Niacinamide – brill. The first and still far and away one of the best. Around £50.00

Bravura Purifying Calendula Toner – 10% glycolic, 3% lactic. Lots of info on the website – the PH is 3.8. Marvellous! And it WAS £8.00 and 39p. A great budget buy.

Cane & Austin Retexturizing Treatment Pads – 10% glycolic, retinyl palmitate and ubiquinone – great ingredients designed for anti-ageing and pigmentation. (Also available from Beauty Bay – not just SpaceNK as I say in the video)

Colbert MD Intensify Facial Pads – Bromelain (pineapple enzymes), lactic acid and glucosamine. Exfoliating discs designed to mimic the effects of microdermabrasion. Glycolic-free. Beautiful product.

Colbert MD Tone Control – These are aimed at damage caused by pigmentation and contain inflacin (massive anti-inflammatory), Phytomoist Qusome (400 times more active than sodium hyaluronate), CoQ10 and ubiquinone. perfect for an older skin plagued by/worried about pigmentation.

Dennis Gross M.D. Alpha Beta Peel Original Formula – Disc One contains glycolic, lactic, malic and salicylic acids, genistein. Disc Two contains green tea extract, phospholipids and sodium bicarbonate. Gentle enough for every day use without losing efficacy.

Dennis Gross M.D. Extra Strength Alpha Beta Peel – Disc One contains glycolic, malic, lactic, citric, mandelic and salicylic acids. Disc Two follows up with retinol, genistein, ubiquinone and resveratrol. Hardcore. Brilliant for anti-ageing.

Dennis Gross M.D. Alpha Beta Glow Pads – contain vitamin D, glycolic and lactic acid along with DHA to both be anti-ageing and impart a glow.
N’est pas que le génie ?

Environ AVST Toner – niacinamide and lactic acid make this another glycolic-free option. The Environ website is awful so this links to the UK distributor which carries more info.

First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads – Affordable, gentle enough for daily use. Lactic and glycolic in an aloe vera base. One of my most-used products this year.

Thanks for watching. Part Two is coming.
