Key ingredients of the Serious Skin Care Glycolic Acid Moisturizer
The Serious Skin Care glycolic acid face cream contains 9.8% glycolic acid (less than 10% is safe for daily use), lots of fruit and coffee extracts.
It also contains propylene glycol and fragrances.
Benefits of glycolic acid
Glycolic acid has the smallest molecules of the AHAs, which is why it is so popular in skin care products – because these small molecules can easily penetrate your skin.
This property makes glycolic acid perfect for exfoliating your skin and removing the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing fresher skin underneath.
Benefits of fruit extracts
Fruit extracts are high in antioxidants which not only nourish your skin, but also help to reverse the signs of aging caused by free radical damage.
Many are also high in AHAs which helps in repairing and rejuvenating your skin by removing dead skin cells, revealing fresher, cleaner skin.
So fruit extracts give you added power to reduce the appearance of age spots and sun spots and even out your skin tone. Skin imperfections are reduced, fine lines plumped up and your complexion looks more vibrant and youthful.
Benefits of coffee extract (Coffea Arabica)
This extract is extracted from green coffee beans and contains lots of essential fatty acids, and antioxidants, which help to reverse the damaging effects of free radicals.
So this ingredient helps to reduce the appearance of sun spots, giving you a more even skin tone.
Coffee Arabica also helps to give your skin a smoother texture, aids in moisture retention and increases the production of collagen and elastin in your skin.
What do customers say about the Serious Skin Care alpha hydroxy acid cream?
There are not many reviews for this lovely glycolic acid face cream, but the majority have given it a 4 or 5 star rating.
This cream is a freaking miracle! After just one use my skin felt so soft and hydrated! Now one month later and the improvement of tone, clarity, texture is drastic! My dark spots vanished my scars have softened and my make up goes on smoother!
Love this product — use it every day after taking off makeup. Amazing how much cleaner my face is after using this product.
I’ve been using this cream for a couple years I love it!
Summing up the Serious Skin Care AHA moisturizer
Serious Skin Care is a well-known and very popular brand and this AHA face cream belongs to their glycolic retexturing range, designed to renew your skin, leaving it refreshed, clean and glowing.
With plenty of antioxidants, fruit and coffee extracts this is a great addition to your daily beauty routine.
The only potential issue for some people is that it contains both propylene glycol and fragrances, so you might want to read some of my other reviews, which are free of these ingredients.
