Glowing Skin with Glossier!

I don’t usually talk about products that I don’t own or haven’t used in the past outside of Wishlists and Anti-Hauls but I cannot contain my excitement for this new product just dropped by Glossier! It’s simply called Solution and it is a liquid, chemical exfoliant. It is formulated with lactic, glycolic and salicylic acid – some of my very favourite acids for keeping my skin smooth and clear. This product also contains skin-soothing and conditioning components which is important when you are basically dissolving the outer most layer of your skin. I love peeling my face, I use chemical exfoliants and enzyme peels as a consistent part of my skincare routine. This product retails at $24 for 4.4 ounces which is fairly affordable in comparison to the different products that I have used. The bottle is millennial pink and looks absolutely stunning, it has a pump component so you can control the amount of product that is dispensed. Back to the pink thing, it’s just pink, the colour that existed eons before millennials – please stop calling it that.

Anyway, I have hyper-acne prone skin and while I have used topical medication since for-ever, I didn’t see a real change in my skin until I started exfoliating with acids. The reduction in texture was almost immediate, overall skin tone improvement and a halt in breakouts soon followed. With extended use, my skin has started producing much less oil and I am actually on the dryer side now which has been a really bizarre change but a welcome one. My point here is; if you aren’t using a chemical exfoliant then do some research and give one a try! There are so many lovely ones on the market, some of my faves include:

Pixi Glow Tonic

Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Ultra Gentle Daily Face Peel

The Ordinary. Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution

Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid

These are all mild enough for my sensitive skin but very effective too! I cannot wait to try the Glossier take on this type of product and will report back when it arrives!

Thanks for stopping by ❤

    1. Right?! I’m really curious, I think they have some nice skincare items but I don’t categorize them as ‘serious’ skincare products. I’ll report back!!

    1. They always do such pretty packaging, I am really curious to see what it’s like. They scared me too at first because I have sensitive skin but acids have seriously become the best part of my skincare!
