If there’s one thing I love it’s a good glycolic skincare product, and the Serious Skincare Glycolic Gommage and Glycolic Extreme Facial Peel I’ve been using have my skin feeling brighter, smoother, and all around happy.
I’ve had a long-standing love affair with glycolic skincare products, going back a few years ago when a glycolic mask gave my then-beleaguered skin the complete turnaround it was in need of, and then some! You see, for a long while I didn’t take very good care of myself. I had a lot of bad health habits and it showed on my skin, big time! In fact, I even wrote a blog post about how to cover up my resulting hyperpigmentation with makeup. After I started making lifestyle changes I turned to glycolic acid skincare products which improved the clarity of my skin big time!
Glycolic Acid products are Alpha Hydroxy Acids that come from cane sugar and work to deeply exfoliate skin cells, leading to all around smoother, brighter, more clear skin. My normal-to-oily skin responds very well to Glycolic Acid and as I’ve experienced through the years, Glycolic Acid products are effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines, clearing pesky blackheads.
Recently I’ve been using and absolutely loving Serious Skincare Glycolic Gommage and Glycolic Extreme Facial Peel, which can be used together twice a week for an easy 20 minute facial, combined.
First, I apply the Serious Skincare Glycolic Extreme Facial Peel ($48.50) on cleansed skin, which has an aloe vera base. You leave this on for 10 minutes, then rinse off with cool water. It’s very gentle and prepares you skin for the powerful next step.
The Serious Skincare Glycolic Gommage ($40.50) is a kaolin-based mask thatcontains a very fine grit exfoliant. You apply this to cleansed skin and let it sit for 10 minutes. This stuff works wonders to smooth skin!
My Final Thoughts: I’m very happy with my results from Serious Skincare Glycolic Gommage and Glycolic Extreme Facial Peel. Overall, my skin looks clearer and brighter and I find both of the products to be gentle. I have the small amount of stinging when I apply the Glycolic Gommage, but I find it fades away quickly and doesn’t bother my skin.
