At 4.7% free acid value, Glytone will detoxify your skin by removing surface impurities and dead skin cells, open up clogged pores to reduce breakouts and blemishes, and smooth out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by drawing moisture into the epidermis.
These qualities all originate from glycolic acid's role as a humectant at low free acid levels:
0-2% Free Acid Value: Increased Moisturization
2-4% Free Acid Value: Smoother & Softer Skin
In addition, Glytone is an excellent way to prep your skin for further treatments as glycolic acid will increase the penetration of skincare ingredients like retinol and hyaluronic acid.
Finally, this glycolic acid face wash doubles as a makeup remover that'll leave your skin feeling lighter, smoother, and more refreshed, just in time for bed! 😴
Finally, silica microbeads polish your skin texture for visibly smoother skin while shea butter comforts and nourishes for a hydrated and balanced complexion.
My Verdict: Give your skin a well-deserved spa day (without the expensive credit card bill) with Botanic Tree Glycolic Acid Exfoliating Cleanser, filled with plant extracts and essential oils, plus silica microbeads and rich shea butter for a luxuriously smooth finish to your day.
10% glycolic acid (not in free acid value, so likely <4% FAV) smooths and refines skin texture while 2% salicylic acid unclogs pores, reduces the appearance of acne, and balances oily skin.
Meanwhile, green tea extract protects your skin from inflammation (free radical damage).
My Verdict: Clear up your complexion with Replenix Gly-Sal 10-2, a professional and affordable face wash featuring 10% glycolic acid, 2% salicylic acid, and green tea extract.
My Verdict: If you're looking to reverse signs of aging (or age gracefully), Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel is a must-have for a refreshing and energizing face wash experience that delivers visible results for wrinkles and fine lines.
