FAQ's Glycolic Acid Toner

IS GLYCOLIC ACID AN AHA?

Yes it is. AHAs, encourage cell turnover to reveal a brighter, more even complexion. Use in the PM and protect your skin with SPF during the day


IS THIS GOOD FOR OILY SKIN? 

Yes, 5% Witch Hazel helps to minimise excess oil 


IS THIS PRODUCT PREGNANCY SAFE?

 We do not recommend this product if pregnant or breastfeeding, consult your doctor before use. 


I HAVE A SENSITIVE SKIN, CAN I STILL USE IT? 

We do not recommend Glycolic Acid Toner for more sensitive skin types due to its strong potency. Take a look at PHA toner as a gentler alternative


HOW TO USE WITH OTHER PRODUCTS:

AHAs like Glycolic Acid can be combined with most other products. However, there are a few to be careful with to ensure you don't over exfoliate and sensitize the skin.

It is not recommended to use both Glycolic Acid and Retinol at the same time, use on different nights if required. Don't mix with other AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Lactic Acid). Avoid mixing with Vitamin C products at the same time (Use Vitamin C in the AM and Glycolic Acid in the PM)


ALWAYS WEAR SUNSCREEN WHEN USING AHA'S

Due to the exfoliating properties of AHA, and the fact it increases skin renewal, means the top layer of skin is newer and potentially more sensitive to sunlight. So we always recommend using in the PM and wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen during the day.


AHAS VS BHAS - WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) are chemical exfoliators. Water-soluble, they work on the surface of your skin, encouraging cell turnover to reveal a brighter, more even complexion. Use in the PM and protect your skin with SPF during the day. Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) are also chemical exfoliators. They are oil soluble, which means they work deeper in your pores, helping to target blackheads and reduce the bacteria that can lead to breakouts. Use AM or PM and protect your skin with SPF during the day.


HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS? 

Products can take up to six weeks to show full results, due to the time it takes for your skin cells to turnover and the results of any products to reach the surface. Consistency is key, so apply regularly even if you’re not seeing the effects straight away. It can be very tempting to increase use of some products to try and see quicker results, don't overdo it though. More is not necessarily more, and overuse can cause irritation and sensitivity. 


IS THIS PRODUCT VEGAN?

Yes! This product contains no animal derivatives and is now certified by The Vegan Society.


WHAT IS THE PH LEVEL OF THIS PRODUCT?

PH LEVEL: 3.6-4.0

Great for use on body

Haven't tried this on my face as I think it would be too strong for me, but its been great on my legs where I need to exfoliate regularly to avoid ingrown hairs and other blemishes. Way more effective than a physical scrub! I've also tried it on my elbows where I get really dry skin and it's massively smoothened the area and really made a difference when used under my normal moisturiser.

Currently using this product

It truly helps the small bumps on your face to go away and also minimizes your pores by giving you a smooth texture.

Excactly

This is a toner my skin needed a long time. I use it two or once a week which is enough to see instant and long-term results. It will last for ages.

Once a week

A good product, but do not apply it more than once a week, if you have combination skin, that is on the dryer side off the spectrum in fall an winter.

Great product!

I started by using it 3x a week then gradually increase it to every other day. I never had any stinging/burning sensation.
