SUMMER FRIDAYS SOFT RESET AHA EXFOLIATING SOLUTION

This is a three-in-one nighttime treatment that exfoliates, brightens and may help reduce the appearance of pores. Used in the evening, this is a concentrated solution of 16% AHA’s including lactic and glycolic acid, to promote cell turnover and slough off dead skin.

Unlike some acid formulas this is alcohol free and is buffered in a glycerin and aloe leaf juice base, meaning you get more of a mild tingle than a noticeable ‘sting’. It is also heavy in niacinamide, proven to brighten, sort your pores out and help with spots. All in all, a lovely addition to your acid toning wardrobe, with extra points for the unexpected niacinamide kick.

How to Use: After cleansing, saturate your cotton pad and sweep it over your face and neck, back and forth like windscreen wiper – avoiding the under-eye area. I personally take my acids over my eyebrows and around my lips (unless you have cold sores/perioral dermatitis, in which case absolutely do not do this).

Once fully absorbed follow with your chosen serum and/or moisturiser. Don’t forget your SPF the next morning.

I really like it. You already know how much I like the CC serum – more of which here.
