Literally, waking up with a glow.

A lot of you will already know that I only swear by beauty skincare products that I find work. I haven’t always been the person who has believed in night-time skincare, purely because I didn’t know what benefits it had on my skin or perhaps didn’t see any results other than my religious daily skincare routine. However, honest honest…the new SkinCeuticals Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight Treatment has changed that. I have been using this product for just over a month and have visibly seen my skin improve in several ways. I have always believed that your skincare products are an investment and that what you put in is what you get out. Over the past few years, I have struggled with dark marks, pigmentations and dull skin (which I never had when I was younger) but with lots of care and really sticking to brands that have worked for me has really helped my skin get to a place I’m happy with.  So why does this overnight treatment work, what does it help with and why this product?


So there is a combination of three active important ingredients in this product that help improve your skin overnight. Firstly, the Glycolic Free Acid. What is Glycolic Acid? In the most simplest way, Glycolic Acid is a concentration which promotes skin glow by weakening the bonds that bind dead skin cells to the skins surface. So it helps to shed dull dead skin cells faster and more effectively, revealing new skin cells quicker resulting in a quantifiable fresh glow. Ultimately, when the dead cells are released the cellular turnover will help minimise the appearance of fine lines, dullness and uneven texture, giving you a brighter and more youthful-looking skin.


Secondly, The Phytic acid provides dual-action exfoliation which will promote your skins clarity and brightness overtime. The Phytic acid is derived from legumes and seeds which promotes the skin brightening benefits. This product actually has clinically proven results that your skin tone will improve by 19% and you skin’s radiance by 36%. Resulting in a more even toned radiance.


Lastly, the Soothing Complex (made up of botanicals like Jojoba & Sunflower seed oils) helps to support the skin barrier by forming a protective, yet breathable layer. This layer locks in hydration & provides comfort to the skin whilst using this highly effective acid driven product.


If you travel very often like me, you will know that investing in well-known skincare products that are easy to get in most countries is very convenient and hassle-free. To keep your skin care routine on point whilst aboard, it is important to know where and how to replace items should you run out. So SkinCeuticals is an American brand and is internationally known for their highly effect cosmeceutical products which is recommended by dermatologists & plastic surgeons. Locally in South Africa we can buy SkinCeuticals online, which makes things 10 times easier. I’ll pop the link below if you want to give it a try.

South Africa, buy online (R1,528) through the expertise of Dermastore (here) // International purchases (here)

BTW, If you would like to give this product a try,  Dermastore are running a competition through the month on June to win the SkinCeuticals Glycolicc 10. So def don't miss out!

So I usually use this in the evening after washing my face, especially on days when I feel like it really needs a glow kick! Let me know how you find this product, would love to hear how you get on xx
