Welcome back to my blog.
Today I want to talk about a new product that I have been using over the last month.
I have never used Glycolic acid till now
maybe because I have always thought to have dry skin
and in my head glycolic acid was only to help very oily skin.
But lately, as I have already mentioned I have "discovered" to be more
especially my t zone (my nose) definitely is oily for sure!
Anyway I was in Superdrug
and one of their skin care range was having a
"Buy 1 and get the second free" offer
so since I have already tried few products by this range, and I was always happy
I decided to get two items
One of those was the
Glycolic Overnight Peel
Down below is the product information that you can get on the Superdrug Website
Naturally Radiant Glycolic Overnight Peel is formulated with a unique energising complex infused with Kiwi Fruit and Mulberry Extracts to help revive skin's radiance and even out skin tone.
With Glycolic Acid, a powerful Alpha Hydroxy (AHA) and a Fruit Acid blend, the refreshing gel formula also refines and retexturises the skin's surface,
providing a brighter, more youthful complexion.
Features Easy to use 30ml tube.
Benefits Infused with plant extracts:
Kiwi Fruit Extract is a rich source of Vitamin C, which is renowned for its remarkable ability to help brighten and even out skin tone, while also providing antioxidant protection against free radicals.
Mulberry Fruit Extract has naturally strong brightening properties,
which can help to reduce discolouration and even out skin tone.
Glycolic Acid is an effective Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) which retexturises the skin's surface,
helping to fade pigment irregularities and smooth fine lines and
wrinkles for a brighter, more youthful complexion.
Dermatologically approved. Overnight: Skin's texture feels smoother Skin looks more radiant
After 4 weeks:
Skin's texture is more refined
Skin tone looks more even
(Self-assessment user trial by 50 people)
I've been using it every single night for the last month.
At first it felt a bit weird not to apply a moisturiser at night, like I usually do.
What I've been doing it's apply my eye cream first
then apply this product all over my face and neck area
(insisting a bit more on my t zone)
The consistency is a very light gel
it absorbs very quickly leaving the skin very smooth, which it was surprising since I thought
it would leave my skin tight.
In the morning when I wake up my skin is smooth
and feel like if I had applied a moisturiser the night before.
I was shock the first day I used it. I wasn't expecting that at all.
The only thing that you MUST do in the morning after sleeping with this glycolic peel
make sure to apply a SPF
since the skin would be very sensitive (especially at the sun)
I really enjoy this product.
I will totally get it again.
A nice price range, for a very effective result
If you are in Superdrug give it a go.
