A couple of years ago, I’d noticed that my skin seemed to be getting duller and the texture a bit rougher. I tried exfoliation scrubs, but no longer had noticeable results. I had a mild glycolic peel from a facialist for the first time a little over a year ago, and was really impressed with the improvement in clarity and texture of my skin. Then in June when I had an appointment with a facialist on our Alaska cruise, she recommended using a product nightly that included some glycolic acid.
I didn’t have an easy time finding one initially. I purchased some products online recommended by readers, but didn’t see the results I’d hoped for. I found this product almost by accident. I had stopped into the Bare Escentuals shop to check out the mineral makeup again during one of my fits of pique with a current foundation, and the sales associate recommended this product. At home reading the ingredients, I realized it had both glycolic and salicylic acids. At first I used twice daily (mornings under 50+ sunscreen) and really saw an improvement within a couple of weeks. I now use this product nightly as a serum before my moisturizer. If you have sensitive skin, I’d suggest trying on a small area first, as there’s a not-quite-a-sting feeling when you first apply.
I’ve spent more on skincare but rarely have found a product that I’m as impressed with as this one.
*Note: the Bare Escentuals website refers to this as a “primer,” but I’ve found that I still need a silicone-based primer on top of my moisturizer and sunscreen for best results.
