A light gel exfoliant with 2% Salicylic acid (aka BHA) and Sarcosine to unclog pores and improve combination skin-related problems such as blackheads and oiliness.

30 ml

description

Salicylic acid is a well-known oil-soluble acid that is the gold standard in treating blackheads and enlarged pores. This exfoliating superstar can unclog pores and balance blackhead-prone, oily skin by working inside the pores to clear out dead skin cells that clog them. Sarcosine joins forces with BHA to further improve combination skin-related problems such as excess oil production.
