KEY INGREDIENTS:

Glycolic Acid: An Alpha-Hydroxy Acid (AHA) often considered the gold standard in dermatology for skin exfoliation. Within our formulas, it is recognized for its ability to increase skin surface cell turnover and help visibly improve skin tone and texture.
Kojic Acid: Derived from mushrooms, it is used in Glycolic B5 Serum to help visibly reduce skin discolorations.
Lipo-Hydroxy Acid: Also known as LHA, it's a derivative of salicylic acid, and has exfoliating and skin surface renewing properties.
Tranexamic Acid (TXA): Recognized by dermatologists, this ingredient is used in Glycolic B5 Serum to help address the appearance of skin discolorations and the overall skin complexion.
Vitamin B5: Panthenol (provitamin B5) is a key ingredient used in some La Roche-Posay formulas to help the skin feel soothed and moisturized.
La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water: A soothing water sourced in the town of La Roche-Posay in France and a core ingredient in most of our products. It contains a unique combination of minerals, trace elements, and a high concentration of selenium, a natural antioxidant.

DERMATOLOGIST INSIGHT


"Serums containing an alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) help remove skin debris, oil and grease from skin pores, but may in turn increase the skin’s sensitivity to the sun. Incorporating a daily sunscreen after applying an AHA-containing serum helps prevent sunburn and photosensitivity."

Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Hadley King

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wish that it worked for me, but sadly it didn’t. I’m having some kind of reaction to these products. The left side of my face and sometimes my neck turns red and hot, and stays that way for hours. I bought several different products and although I’ve tried the process of elimination, I can’t tell which one is causing the problem. Unfortunately I missed the 30 day return period due to travel. My husband has tried it and hasn’t had a reaction but he wants to use the products that he already has.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Messy and stays sticky on the skin..... I tried this serum based on my dermatologist recommendations. However, the packaging is a HUGE problem - it comes with a screw on cap and an eye dropped is included in the box. But the eye dropper doesn't fit the top of the bottle securely, causing the serum to leak out and get all over everything. Plus I found the serum to be too "wet" and stay very sticky/tacky for way too long. And I only used a few drops on my face. This is being returned to the store where I purchased it and I do not recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I have been using this serum for a year. I noticed a much improved look and feel of my skin. I stopped for a short period and returned after noticing my skin dull and had dry dead skin on my face. I would highly recommend this product. My skin is very sensitive and I can use this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glycolic B5 10% Pure Glycolic Acid Serum. Great!!! My Wife loves this product!! She swears by it, because it really works to remove age spots on her face. It isn’t instant, but it definitely works over a short period of time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product for fading dark spots The Product is very good. A few weeks I can already see my dark spots fading. The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is that the dropper does not fit correctly on the bottle. It does not screw on tight. This causes the product to leak and be exposed to air.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Product turned dark brown The product turned dark brown and I can’t open the dropper any more, looks like product have turn like a glue. So disappointed! The expiration date is 08/24
