Ok wow....love it...I'm already a user of glycolic acids and I got this serum as it has 12% - highest amount I have seen, I Used this serum for a solid 2 weeks nights and have def seen a difference in my skin....If I exfoliate too much and then immediately apply this, I find it does tingle, but I use the May Coop raw sauce as an essence before this serum and I think that keeps me from having any adverse reaction.
Which skin type is it good for?
What it is:
A 12 percent AHA/BHA serum for night that refines and resurfaces skin to reveal a smoother and more radiant complexion, while enhancing the performance of other products by clearing the way for maximum absorption.
- Dullness and uneven texture
- Uneven skin tone
If you want to know more…
This high-tech gel resurfaces dull skin, lifting dead skin cells away by gently dissolving the glue that holds them to the surface. The results are greater clarity and a smoother, more even-looking complexion. Formulated with a dream-team AHA/BHA blend including glycolic, lactic, tartaric, citric, and salicylic acids, and blended with raspberry extract, T.L.C. Framboos™ sinks in easily and delivers an effective level of chemical exfoliation without the harsh side effects like dryness or sensitization. Fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration, along with excess oiliness and the appearance of pores, will appear dramatically diminished. Horse chestnut, bearberry and white tea help to calm and soothe while improving the appearance of broken capillaries. Go from a drab complexion to an absolutely luminous one practically overnight.
What else you need to know:
AHA’s can be sensitizing if not formulated properly. Drunk Elephant added soothing plant extracts and formulated T.L.C. Framboos at the ideal pH level of 3.8, which Drunk Elephants believes is the key to an effective formulation. This product is 100 percent free of fragrance, essential oil, silicone, and irritant.
Drunk Elephant is committed to using only clean ingredients that either directly benefit the skin’s health or support the integrity and effectiveness of the formulations. They never take into account an ingredient’s synthetic or natural status, but instead choose based on its safety and bio-compatibility. You won’t find what Drunk Elephant calls "the suspicious six" of any kind in their products (1. silicones, 2. chemical screens, 3. sensitizing colorants/perfumes, 4. sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) 5. essential oils, 6. drying alcohols), making them appropriate for all skin. They believe that these six ubiquitous ingredients are at the root of almost every skin issue. When formulating the products, they focus on pH and toxicity, always making sure that the actives are at efficacious levels. This is the Drunk Elephant difference.
Drunk Elephant is a supporter of IEF (International Elephant Foundation) and is cruelty-free.
