Our unique blend of alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) + beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) efficiently exfoliate away the layers of visible sun damage. This powerful formula is efficient enough to use once a week, but gentle enough to apply as often as you want.

All Paula’s Choice products are 100% fragrance free, clinically proven to be non-irritating, and never tested on animals.

By combining glycolic, lactic, malic, and tartaric (AHAs) unique skin refining and renewing properties, you’ll see dramatically renewed skin tone after one application. Peptides and ceramides reinforce what makes skin naturally resilient helping chamomile, grape seed extract, green tea and other antioxidants protect against further environmental damage. Allantoin, oat extract, and licorice soothe skin after treatment.

Apply once or twice daily after desired cleansing and/or toning. Dispense one pump and smooth over face including the eye area (avoid lash line and eyelids). Do not rinse. For daytime, follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.

Powerful Exfoliant but Moisturising!

10% Glycolic Acid and 0% irritation! It’s all in the formulation PC expertly crafted. I use this every 3rd night as I cycle with my tretinoin night n moisturising night. Sometimes I forget to layer this with my moisturiser but this one is sooo moisturising by itself I wake up with a dewy skin!

Love!

I have the 5% and I use that more often. I use this 10% once a week to give my skin that stronger peel. I love it. I wake up with a bright face and it’s surprisingly moisturising. The ingredients are so great! Yay PC!

I'm Impressed

Really good for problematic skin to keep it smooth and spot-free. I use overnight and wake up with soft smooth baby skin.

I have used this for a few nights, and already see a huge difference! This serum is everything I've always wanted....AHA, BHA, ceramides, green tea, licorice. I wake up with clear, smooth, plump skin with no irritation or redness....where has it been all my life??
