A cocktail of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients protect skin from daily environmental aggressors and free radical damage, whilst soothing and preventing irritation so you can experience repaired, renewed skin with an improved texture. Suitable for normal to dry skin and addressing signs of ageing. E.N.

My wonder product


I will never be without this AHA...its not the strongest one out there, but its one of the most elegantly made, its silky smooth, with enough AHA (and BHA) and lots of other goodies, that, with consistent use, I have gotten the smooth, bright skin i always wanted, and i always see its effects best when i discontinue its use...dull skin within 3 days...Paula's choice struck gold here!

I didn't feel the need to use this exfoliant everyday and it still made a major difference :)
