We love things that you can count on to go above and beyond the call of duty—a delicious leave-in conditioner, an ultrahydrating sleeping facial, and now, this leave-on exfoliant. No beads or scrubs here though. Powerful ingredients like AHA (short for alpha hydroxy acid) and glycolic acid rejuvenate skin cells for a more luminous complexion. Layer this gel under your other serum and moisturizer and go, no rinsing necessary.
How it Works
Alpha hydroxyl acid is the super power behind this gentle exfoliant and works to soothe skin, fade sun damage, and boost radiance. AHAs are particularly good for sun-damaged and dry skin because they exfoliate at a cellular level to rejuvenate skin’s texture. Like all of Paula’s Choice products, this one is fragrance free and with a pH range of 3.5 to 3.8. Green tea and chamomile soothe sensitive skin while delivering effective results.
How to Use
Apply a small amount once or twice a day after cleansing and toning. Remember: No rinsing! Follow with the rest of your daily skincare and makeup routine.
