Glycolic Acid 15% Night Treatment 50ml
This is Bravura London’s most requested product as it works for all but the most sensitive of skin types. Some people see results in their skin tone after the first application; the most common feedback we receive is that it leaves the skin glowing. Glycolic Acid 15% Night Treatment is an effective treatment for dry, mature and problem skin. It has a content of 15% Glycolic Acid which has been partially neutralised and has a PH of 4.5. Exfoliating yet nourishing, it is recommended for these skin types for evening use and is ideal for spotty skins that can become a little dry when using gels or oil free based lotions.
This is an excellent product to help with ageing skin, not only will the skin be nourished by the high content of Aloe Vera and Safflower oil, the glycolic acid helps to exfoliate leaving your skin looking fresher and younger, refining the skin to reduce fine lines, enlarged pores, wrinkles and age spots. This luxurious formula will give you a radiant and youthful glow.
Suitable for all skin types, if you have sensitive skin or rosacea we do not recommend this product. If this is your first time using glycolic acid we highly recommend you start with a lower strength.
How does it work?
Alpha-hydroxy acids perform at the base of the stratum corneum, dissolving the ‘glue’ that holds dead skin cells together. Because this increases cell turnover, skin becomes smoother, more elastic and more even in tone and texture.
At the same time Glycolic Acid also stimulates your skin to produce more collagen. Collagen is the main structural protein of the skin and keeps it elastic and line free; when this starts to disintegrate, skin begins to sag and wrinkle. Replacing the collagen your skin has lost with age can help diminish crow’s feet around the eyes, frown lines, and vertical lines around the lips.
The Glycolic Acid in this product has been partially neutralised, this means that the glycolic acid is released over a period of time and is less irritating than glycolic acid that hasn't been partially neutralised, giving you the same results without the side effects. This new formula is still a strong product but is less irritating than our previous formulation.
How is this good for spots?
The most common form of acne is caused as hair follicles get clogged by dead skin cells and sebum - the oil your skin naturally produces. Bacteria multiply within the clogged pores and so spots and blackheads form. By removing the dead skin cells you are also removing the grime and excess oil that's blocking up the pores and exposing fresh, new skin that can breathe. Most people report that with regular use of AHA products, their once very oily skin changes to a combination type skin.
How does it reduce scars and wrinkles?
When new layers of skin grow they are following the pattern, or blueprint of the skin above them, so if you have scars in your skin that that is the blueprint the new skin is following. By removing the top layers of skin daily you are reducing that blueprint and so the scar will become less visible, slowly over time.
No topical treatments can reverse deep scarring but the Glycolic Acid 15% Night Treatment will make your skin smoother, and the scars less noticeable. The treatment also stimulates the production of collagen which keeps your skin smooth and firm. It also allows your moisturiser to penetrate the deeper layers of skin, and so the skin’s own regeneration process can happen more efficiently.
When using any product containing glycolic acid you must use a moisturiser with a SPF of at least 15 during the day, if you plan on sunbathing or visiting a hot climate use a minimum factor 25.
Apply a small amount of moisturiser using gentle, upwards strokes over the face and neck after cleansing and toning in the evening.
If you find that your skin becomes sore and/or dry try using only the smallest amount, as it has a 15% content of glycolic acid you don't need much, apply enough to lightly cover the skin.
When first using this product, start by using it every other evening until you feel your skin can tolerate the cream every night.
Suitable for all skin types, apart from sensitive skin.
If you feel your skin needs some additional moisture alternate with your regular moisturiser every other night. This product works well in conjunction with our non acid based moisturisers.
Your moisturiser will arrive with a little plastic insert, although we know these fiddly things can be a little annoying, please do keep this within your jar to prevent any contamination and to keep your product as fresh as possible.
Before you buy If you are undergoing any kind of intense beauty treatment (microdermabrasion, glycolic acid treatment, laser therapy etc) consult your therapist before purchase. If you have any broken veins/capillaries we recommend avoiding these areas. If you're on medication which increases the skins sensitivity or causes severe dryness we do not recommend acid based products during treatment and for 12 months after your course has been completed. People who commonly have cold sores may find that chemical peels can cause an outbreak of cold sores and may want to take their medication before use or avoid use altogether, do not apply acid products to your skin while you have an active cold sore.

I have used this product a few times and when I don't have it I really miss it. It definitely helps with brightening the skin. I love the new packaging as well. Great value for money compared to other similar products
Received this a few days ago with my order as my skin has just gotten out of hand with dryness and I love the peels for helping to sort it out. I wanted to try this to help further but even using a small amount it seems to be making my skin even drier. Going to experiment with it using it less and trying to build up a tolerance but so far disappointed
A noticeable difference in days love this !!!!
I used to use the glycolic 15% serum and that was fine, but I wanted to speed up the fading of my hyperpigmentation from acne so I bought this, I have been using this every other day, so 4 times a week, for about 3-4 months. Since using this I have stopped using my usual exfoliator as I didn't want to over exfoliate. The first few weeks I broke out and of course this is normal. But now after about 3-4months I still get big nodules on my face more frequently than before using this. Maybe it's over exfoliating and I'm using it too much? It does say use every other day...positives makes face smooth does fade recent hyperpigmentation quicker. Also helps with active acne.
I battled acne for many years. I have been using this product for 3 months and my skin has drastically changed. No new pimples for a while and my scarring has faded and skin is a lot smoother than before. I just ordered it again and cannot live without it!
I bought this alongside the day cream and absolutely LOVE them. Now have quite a collection of these fabulous products and now wont use any other brand on my face at all. Best descovery in skincare i have ever made. Lot less spots, lines reduced and generally younger much nicer looking skin. I ADORE BRAVURA PRODUCTS :hearts:пёЏ:hearts:пёЏ:hearts:пёЏ
A little background on my skin, I am 22 and suffer from acne-prone, oily skin. Over the years my breakouts have lessened and are not as severe as they once were. My main issue is the redness and scarring these breakouts have left behind.I have been using this product for over 6 months as I really wanted to try the product out before leaving a review. Well since using this product I have gone through an entire jar and I have repurchased. Repurchasing a product for me is a clear sign I love it and that is 100% accurate with this product.The main benefits I find with this product is that once I have applied it at night, I wake up in the morning with skin glowing. My skin is looking clearer overnight and I find my makeup application is 10x smoother. In the 6 months, I have been using this product I have found that the redness and acne scarring I have to be significantly reduced. I would even go as far to say that the scarring is gone! I also find that blackheads are reduced on my nose with a use of this product. In terms of my breakouts I don't see a significant difference in how often I am breaking out, however, I use the salicylic acid also from brave and I find that an excellent product to alternate with this product to keep my spots under control. All in all, I think this product is fantastic! I genuinely couldn't live without it has made such a difference to my skin and me wold recommend it to everyone!
I have used this product twice now and i have a rash like blotchy spots the side of my face im guessing im allergic to it
I've been using this cream for about a week and a half and wow! It's is amazing!! I originally started using Avon's glycolic acid resurfacing pads which were ok but just didn't quite cut it. However - this cream on the other hand is a gods send! I have suffered with spot prone skin for years which unfortunately has led to scarring. Since usually the cream I can definitely notice a difference. My skin is extremely sensitive. Usually when I even think about using a new product I break out but no breakouts! I will tell you this... if you do find that you start breaking out try googling purging. It didn't happen with this cream as I'd already got past this stage when I was using the pads. Purging is basically when you start using a product that contains live ingredients which glycolic acid has. It brings everything that was hiding below the surface to the top so don't immediately think that it's not for you. The fact is they were going to rear their ugly heads at some point it's just glycolic acid speeds up the process! Purging will only happen in places where you have blocked pores so it you start breaking out on your forehead which you wouldn't normally then perhaps it is a reaction. For me I was breaking out for about a week then it started to clear. Give it ago... what have you got to lose apart from wrinkles and scars!
I wanted to step up my skincare game using this night treatment. The first few times I used it, it seemed to work great. All of a sudden I started to get a huge allergic reaction to the product. My whole face and throat couldn't stop itching. I'm clueless as to why this happened, because I was used to aha and bha treatments, and I can't find anything in the ingredients list of which I know I'm allergic to. So now I'm left with almost a full jar of this product :( I'm really sad that it doesn't work on me, because I can see in the other reviews that it's an awesome product. I just wanted to put this out there because I hope others don't get the same effect as I did.
I bought this after using the chemical exfoliators for the past 18 months and I am wondering why I have never bought it before! Its my new fav product! From the first night using it my skin has a botox shine to it and it has helped my spots and pigmentation marks to disappear! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! the only thing I don't like is the smell but that is a small compromise for the amazing-ness of the cream!!
I'm not one for writing reviews but i just had to on this occasion wow what a product I would call this Botox in a jar it is the best cream I have ever used in my whole life and I'm 41 years old I have seen results as soon as I started using it the fine lines on my forehead just seem to disappear before my very eyes Ive ordered the flannel and the glycolic acid and the ginseng toner and carnt wait to use them thank you so much bravura you have stop me going for my yearly Botox fix
I'm not one for writing reviews but iv been buying this product for 2 years now. I have suffered with acne for 15 years and tried just about everything, this cream wins hands down! I have done glycolic acid peels and I have tried the peels from here, Amazon, and the gel too. They all work but I would say out of all of them all this cream is by far the most effective. I say this because at first I was unsure what to buy so tried everything! I stopped using it for a while as it does stain your pillows, and thought I would try just the peels alone for a bit. This didn't work for me. So now my routine is to cleanse, cleanse, cleanse gently! Alternative nights using the salicyclic peel and oil free moisturising with alternative nights of using glycolic night cream every night. I feel anyone's pain who has been through a similar exoerience to me, iv spent my entire late teens and 20s with terrible skin and it has affected my confidence and social life so much. My only wish is that I'd found this out earlier!
I never usually write reviews but always tend to study reviews before purchasing! I read reviews on this cream before purchasing and thought I had to give it a go as my skin was really getting me down!. Being 44 yet still having acne/spots and now having milia on my forehead I was desperate to try anything! I always had to go out with foundation on even if just nipping out to get a paper!! Literally the first night I noticed a difference!! Butjust over a week alternating with the salicylic peel my skin was virtually clear and has been ever since! It's amazing! I havent had a spot since! I can go out without make up or use a tinted moisturiser! I really did have problem skin and to be honest can't believe how this cream along with the peel has transformed it! I can never be without it!!! Thank you so much
Just incredible results with this cream! gorgeous feeling on skin, clears up any spots and refines and smoothes skin I apply this at night after I have toned with the Calendula toner and i wake up with a beautiful glow. Of all the serums I have used, I think this is actually the best cream out there! MUST buy ladies! I have been using Glycolic for a while now but this is just a new level of skin care Thank you Bravura for these fantastic products, you are changing my skin xxx
I have never used any acid products before, I was a bit apprehensive but I've never had a problem with any skincare products and this had good reviews so I decided to give it a go. I don't really have any problems like spots but I'm 31 and I've noticed my skin just doesn't look as fresh as it used to. I've been using this 3-4 times a week for about 5 weeks now and I just can not believe that a cream that was under ВЈ20 has done so much for my skin. It glows, to the point that a co-worker asked me if I'd had botox and I hadn't noticed how many blemishes I must have had before using this because my skin looks so much clearer that I've even started wearing a tinted moisturiser rather than a foundation because I just don't want to cover up my skin. My pores also look tighter because I've noticed my make-up sits better. Best of all, I only use a tiny bit so this cream is going to last me months!
I've suffered from acne for most of my adult life and this product has transformed my skin in just a few weeks! I cannot recommend this highly enough, my skin is glowing and I can resist the urge to hide behind layers of make up! Only wish I'd discovered it a lot sooner!
I have suffered with hormonal acne for the past 13 years so it goes without saying that I have some scarring and hyperpigmentation. After using this product nightly for two weeks, my scars and marks are significantly lighter, my skin is smoother and more radiant. I would not hesitate to recommend this product to anyone. My only word of caution is that if you have sensitive skin I would recommend that you use this every other night as it can be a bit intense at first.
No more dry spotty skin. I can finally look in the mirror and see my face and not just a series of spots. This products is amazing!
Oh my I love this night cream. I saw the other reviews and being so impressed with the glycolic peel I thought I would give it go. This cream is magic in a pot! I have been using it every other night for a fortnight and saw a huge difference in skin tone straight off. When I get up after using this my skin is glowing, feels and looks super soft and feels hydrated and balanced. I can not praise this cream enough, it's like a sleeping beauty effect where you go to sleep for your usual length of time but your skin looks so rejuvenated it looks like you've rested for years! This will now be a permanent part of my skin care routine and I'm only sorry that I didn't try it sooner.
Hello, I am 66 and have had a pretty poor skin on and off for years, I get blackheads around my eye area and on my nose also odd ones here and there which I keep on squeezing out. Overall not a good skin but not too wrinkled yet as quite oily. I tried the 15% night treatment after finding an old jar in my drawer, used it up and sent for another back in September, also I had some retin a 1% and some glycolic acid so I used all at once and made my face a bit sore so now I use the night treatment morning and night and I use a sonic brush to push it into the pores. The difference is really good with hardly any blackheads now and a much fresher plumper look to my skin. Well done Bravura for keeping these products affordable, I will be trying your foaming cleanser when my other ones run out so I expect even better results. I read somewhere treat your skin for its condition and not for your age this has worked for me and I am now glowing.
Just after a week of using this my skin tone, acne and scarring is massively reduced. Amazing. So happy. Plus it will last months!
I've had nasty cystic acne round my jawline and neck for 2 years and have tried everything. I've quite a lot of scarring too. This cream has cleared it up in 2 months! I've noticed a difference every day and my scarring is disappearing rapidly. I'm so happy.
Three days in and my skin is almost clear! Having very hormonal skin can really knock my confidence but im now hopeful that I've found a product that really works. I commend Bravura!
Have used this for 3 days now absolutely lovely my skin is glowing had lots compliments about my skin. Definitely be buying again. Many thanks
I adore this moisturiser, it is literally my number one skin saviour and under no circumstances do I ever intend to be without it. Ever. I have hormonal acne across my cheeks with accompanying scars but my skin is generally dry so finding the right moisturiser is a bit tricky. This one is 99% perfect. It's a very thick cream and a little goes a really long way so a whopping great 50ml pot will last ages, making it excellent value for money, but that's not the reason you should use it. I can literally see a difference in both active patches of acne and old scars overnight. In the morning my skin tone is more even and my face feels both moisturised and smoother. It somehow just feels well taken care of, almost glowing even. I use a range of Bravura products, including the very excellent rejuvenating serum, but I suspect even just this would do my skin the world of good. I actually rate it as better at reducing my scars and acne than the glycolic acid peel, and my skin will tolerate using this cream every night. Oh, and the 1% not so great? It smells a bit funky. That is the only thing I can fault it on.
I am so impressed with this cream. I have ageing skin, some pigmentation, open pores and dull complexion. Well I did before using this amazing cream. I use every other night and my skin is glowing. Smooth, lightened pigmentation, diminished pores. Makeup is easier to apply and less needed. Truly a miracle cream. Thank you bravura!
I don't have particularly problem skin but I would always have one or two spots on my face. After using this product for a couple of weeks, I have no spots and my skin looks much clearer. My husband has even noticed so it must be good!! The jar lasts ages as you only need a small amount. Love this product!
A little about me- I'm 25, have combination/slightly oily skin, which has always been prone to breakouts. I also have some minor scarring from previous breakouts and hyperpigmentation on my upper lip. This product is so amazing that none of the above are issues anymore! my skin looks & feels better than I can ever remember. please buy as you won't be disappointed. The best part is that its affordable too! I hope that the price doesn't change as I would then have to stop buying & find something else which would be devastating. Thankyou bravura for creating such a fantastic & affordable product. It can be harsh on the skin at first but it specifies that on the packaging so do read the directions before using.
Amanda as promised will send you before and after. Absolutely private and confidential. Thank you for your all professional advice:)
