Lately, I’ve been breaking out pretty badly again and it’s really been giving me the blues. I’ll typically use my Herbivore Blue Tansy Mask or May Lindstrom: The Problem Solver (that I temporarily stole from my mom) along with my usual skincare routine to keep the acne at bay. I love my little simple skincare routine and I’m glad I found products that work well. However, sometimes I need a little extra push to get this reoccurring acne to go away…at least for more than a few days.
I remembered during Christmastime I purchased a try-me kit from Drunk Elephant at Sephora. I got the nightbright which contains the T.L.C Framboos Glycolic Night Serum and Virgin Marula Facial Oil. I’ll be completely honest, though, I’m not at all a fan of the Marula Oil but I do adore the Framboos Glycolic Serum. Anyway, I used these for a few nights during Christmastime and then completely forgot about it.
Fast-forward two months, I used the Framboos Glycolic Night Serum last night and my skin did almost a 180. Glycolic Acid is a chemical exfoliator that gets rid of dead skin cells and supports cellular turnover. In other words, it helps with your acne and other issues you may be having with your skin. What I really like about the Framboos Glycolic Night Serum is that it contains cactus extract which helps prevent inflammation when using topical AHA’s such as glycolic acid. AHA’s can cause mild skin irritation so that extra plant extract helps to prevent the irritation.
The first time I ever used this chemical exfoliator, my face started to bubble up which freaked me out. Then I realized that that was a sign that the product was working. I did wake up with skin that appeared brighter and I’m not exactly sure why or how I forgot about this gem.
With all of that being said, I will keep using this for the next few nights to see if it truly works and will probably do an update sometime soon. Feel free to comment if you have any questions!
