Key ingredient

  • Glycolic Acid
    Is naturally found in sugar cane, which has a small molecular size that allows it to penetrate deeper into the skin to target a variety of skin concerns. Glycolic Acid assists in unclogging pores, refining and diminishing the appearance of enlarged pores. 6% Glycolic Tonic reveals radiant glowing skin, by dissolving the bonds that allow old skin cells to stick together and thicken.

10 reviews for 6% Glycolic Tonic

    Both my husband (combination/oily skin type) and I (combination/dry/sensitive) use this product and are happy with it. It does leave my skin red and slightly warm to the touch, but it doesn’t bother me. We both find it leaves our skin smoother and feeling cleaner with less breakouts.

    Depending on how sensitive your skin is, I might rather recommend the Mandelic or Lactic acid, but we’ve found that this works for us.

    I absolutely love this product! It definitely is exactly what I need for my skin. For those who say the product is sticky, add a few splashes into your falm and pat on rather than using a cotton pad! It also saves product (mine lasts minimally 4 months with everyday application). LOVE THIS!!!
