What's included and how do I use them?
Salicylic Acid is the main ingredient in a lot of products designed for oily, problem skin and has been known to help the following conditions
* Breakouts * Inflamed, hard spots
* Blackheads & whiteheads * Enlarged, blocked pores
* Over production of sebum (oily skin)
* Bumps under the skin (trapped oil)
What makes our salicylic acid unique is that it's not diluted with a large list of ingredients and it has a low, acidic PH of 3. This product can be used as a rinse of treatment or left on overnight under moisturiser.
Salicylic Acid is the key ingredient for restoring purity and clarity to the skin. It is a highly effective chemical exfoliant and an excellent pore cleanser. It works by gently removing old cells from the skin, and can also help to boost collagen production. Salicylic Acid has an anti-inflammatory effect, making it useful for anyone with breakouts and redness.
Because salicylic acid has a larger molecular structure to Glycolic Acid it stays on the surface of the skin longer giving it fantastic pore clearing capabilities. It has been found that Salicylic Acid is effective with as little as one-fifth the concentration typically found in products containing Glycolic Acid, which is why a lower percentage works so well.
If you suffer from Dry Skin, Sun Damage, Pigmentation, or Premature Ageing please take a look at our Glycolic Acid or Lactic which would be a more suitable treatment.
Ingredients Aqua, Salicylic acid, Propylene Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Hydroxide.
Before you buy Salicylic acid is not recommended if you're pregnant/breastfeeding. 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.

Our fabulous little sets are a great way to introduce yourself to the amazing skin benefits of acid exfoliation as they give you the correct cleanser and toner to use before your acid, which is very important to get the best results, you don't want to use a cleanser with acids, harsh ingredients or exfoliators.
The acids come with full instructions and explain how to cleanse, tone and use the acid but to add a little more clarity -
We recommend you use your acids in the evening. To start, you'd use your sample of first cleanse oil, about a 5-10 pence piece depending on if you're wearing make-up, massage in to dry skin for roughly a minute, apply a little water which will turn your cleanser milky and rinse, do not use a face flannel, cottons pads or a cleansing brush, nothing that will drag the skin. Then pat (DO NOT RUB) your skin dry. Double cleansing in the evening is very important so repeat the process once more.
Toner, put a cotton pad (the flat pads, not cotton wool) directly on to the mouth of the bottle and tilt, move the pad around and do this roughly 5 times, there should be enough toner. Gently wipe all over your face and neck, leave to dry.
You are now ready to use your acid, following the instructions that are included.
We do not send out this guide (to save paper) so please do read before using your new set.
