🌼key ingredients: Sugar cane-derived glycolic acid, a type of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), with a concentration of 5.25%. A gentle skin resurfacing exfoliant that targets discoloration, sun damage, fine lines, and clogged pores by removing dead skin cells & increasing your skin’s cellular turnover. Also has Kale, Spinach, and Parsley as antioxidants. Aloe, Panthenol (Vitamin B5), & Sodium Hyaluronate as humectants and Allantoin for soothing. ph 3.5-4
🌼texture/formulation: Clear, green liquid that has a watery consistency. It’s absorbed quickly & leaves my face feeling comfortably moist, without a dry matte texture nor a discernibly sticky or tacky film.
🌼application: I use it at night 1-2x a week. (Others can use it everynight, pay attention to your skin's resiliency, every skin is unique) I apply this as the first step in my routine after cleansing. My preferred method is to pour some onto a cotton pad & gently swipe across my face. Leave it on for about 3-5mins then I continue with the rest of my routine. Don't forget spf the next day!
🌼coin: $25 for a 200ml bottle which is not bad! However, this brand is not that accessible in our country so I got this for $32, a bit up there imo
🌼verdict: I’ve got to admit – I had high hopes for this product, esp after reading raving reviews of it, but I gotta say, I wasn't blown away. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy using this toner bec it's gentle enough for my skin and it was able to do what an AHA was supposed to do but no "wow" factor for me. It’s a pleasant-enough product to keep using as a supplement to my routine, but I’m undecided if I’ll repurchase. Maybe bec I can see more significant results when using my BHA? Yes I think so. Overall, still a good product but my doors are still open for other AHAs to try (at a cheaper price point) I'll give this a 4/5✨
