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.

Value for money!!!

Amazing serum! I use it on my nose and makes my pores disappear.

Not that effective !

This has a great gel texture that absorbs into the skin quickly and doesn't dry it out. It is also non-irritating (most G&G products are soothing). I won't be buying it again as it doesn't compare to PC 2% BHA liquid exfoliant in terms of efficacy. This needs a lower PH and much more penetration enhancers to be effective. I had high hopes but i'm disappointed. I hope it gets reformulated. Good texture (cosmetic elegance) is worthless when products don't work.

Wonderful product

Light, non-sticky serum that just absorbs nicely and it does what it says! I have been purchasing it for quite some time now and will continue doing so. My skin is clear but oily and this serum keeps it clear by removing all the dead skin cells which, as a result, leaves skin smoothe and ready for other Georgeous products :)


Works great and is gentle enough for my sensitive skin. I’ve used prescription brands that are great for fighting breakouts but they are too strong and really mess up my moisture barrier. My skin doesn’t like many products anymore but so far that is wonderful.

teint éclatant et pores moins visibles

Je l'utilise depuis sa sortie, il fait le teint éclatant et affine les pores de la peau, il faut en mettre très peu, je l'utilise tous les matins et le flacon me dure longtemps. C'est un excellent rapport qualité prix.
