๐ŸงชChemical Exfoliants will give you Baby Smooth Skinโค๏ธ

Hello baby smooth skin! You know, that feeling of soft, supple and smoothness after using a satisfying chemical exfoliant. Chemical exfoliants such as beta hydroxy acids (BHA), alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) and polyhydroxy acids (PHA) have become big game changers in the beauty world for helping to sloth away dead skin cells clogging up your pores. Though we should be careful not to over exfoliate (that could cause unwanted irritation to the skin), chemical exfoliants such as The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution, has become a go-to staple for many in need of a little skin rejuvenation. Think at home facial spa vibes.

The AHA + BHA chemical exfoliating mask is formulated with a simple ingredient list of glycolic, lactic, tartaric, citric, salicylic and hyaluronic acid, vitamin b5, black carrot and tasmanian pepperberry (anti-inflammatory properties). The product retails for $8, is vegan and cruelty free and its accessibility and affordability make it one of the most popular chemical exfoliants on the market. Glowish influencer Shirley is intrigued by the product and hopes it is something she can incorporate into her skincare routine.

Shirley has oily combination skin and is looking for a product that is oil controlling, smoothing and ultimately overall brightening for her dull and tired skin. Upon first application, she is immediately taken back by the visual appearance of the product. Finding it unusual looking and eerily looking similar to blood, she covers her face in a thin layer. She immediately feels a tingle on her skin when applying the product but notices that it goes away once the product has set on the skin. After the first use she is surprised at how soft and smooth her face feels. With the second application a few days later, she decides to apply a thicker layer and is again delighted by the same soft and smooth results.

โ€œIโ€™m just in love with how my skin looks and feels right now. It feels like new skin has just grown on my face.โ€

Overall, the influencer had a great experience with the chemical peeling solution and notes that its simple and clean ingredient list, along with its affordability, make it a product she would definitely recommend to others.
