Glycolic Acid Set
This convenient starter set gives you everything you need to perform your at home chemical peel.
What is Glycolic Acid?
Also known as a ‘Chemical Peel’ or the ‘Lunchtime Peel’, Glycolic Acid is an Alpha hydroxy acid which performs at the base of the stratum corneum (the top layers of your skin), 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 reduce crow’s feet, frown lines, and vertical lines around the lips.
How is this good for spots, blackheads and enlarged pores? 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. Most people report that with regular use of AHA products, their once very oily skin becomes more balanced, the less oil your skin produces, the less oil there is to get trapped. If you suffer with deep blackheads, use the glycolic acid in conjunction with our Salicylic Acid 2%.
How does it help mild 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 fine lines in your skin that is the blueprint the new skin is following. By removing the top layers of skin regularly, you are reducing that blueprint and so the lines become less visible, slowly over time. Using glycolic acid every other evening means you are constantly renewing and regenerating the skin, so you get much better results than a peel used once a week.

I’m 34 years old with combernation skin that always breaks out with spots around my chin and my skin scars with most spots! I received my set last week and already seeing a big difference I’ve had no new breakouts I’ve had comments from family and how healthy my skin looks I’ve left the house with only a bb cream instead of full coverage foundation! And my skin hadn’t died out it just looks and feels smother and brighter, couldn’t be happier, will definitely be getting full size bottles and now have the moisturiser on route!
I’ve tried hundreds of different products and facials but nothing compares to this! I saw a recommendation on Facebook and thought I would try it, best decision ever! It has made my pores look smaller and my scarring has gone down, I have only used it a couple times so far and have already noticed a difference
I have been using the cleanser, toner and glycolic acid for 2 weeks now every other day and I haven’t seen any difference in my skin at all, so I’m not very impressed.
I have recently had really bad skin due to medication I have been taking. Found it really hard for months to find something that can help with the scaring and redness, only been using these products for 4/5 days and can already see a massive difference in my skin and scaring! Hope over a longer course of time it might finally clear!! Thank you so much!!!
I cannot believe how well this product works! Just within the short space of 2 weeks it has nearly cleared up my skin and scaring. I even had a cluster of around 6 horrible under the skin spots on my jaw line that I have tried everything to get rid of, and they have completely disappeared within the time I have been using the 10% peel. I have literally recommended it to everyone! Thank you so much, I feel so much more confident in my skin.
Products are amazing! I usually dread trying new products because Of break outs! But been using these for two weeks and my skin looks and feels amazing! Not tested on animals proving beauty products don’t need to cause suffering! Will definitely be buying more!
I honestly can't praise this kit enough! I have suffered all my life with acne which has left quite deep scarring on my face which I have always been conscious about. I used to pay extortionate amounts of money for Meso Vytal treatments which included a light face peel beforehand but, once I came across this kit, I just had to try it. I love being able to carry out the treatment myself at home and saving so much money at the same time. The glycolic acid does sting for a minute or so after application, but I enjoy it as you can tell it's working! My skin is left glowing and looking fresh afterwards. I'm just doing my research into the lactic acid kit now to add to my collection of Bravura. It really has been a little life-saver! Thank you!
