As a lover of glycolic acid, I immediately wanted to check the GOOPGLOW 15% Glycolic Acid Overnight Glow Peel. Complimentary from Goop, this peeling pad promises to exfoliate, retexturize, and brighten skin while you sleep.
These pads contain 15% glycolic acid to removes dead skin cells and other debris while helping increase cell turnover, tropical fruit extracts (mango, banana, and yellow mombin) to help with cell turnover while reinforcing the skin’s barrier function, Australian kakadu plum for its antioxidant properties, and hyaluronic acid to hydrate skin.
I have been using this twice now (once a week) and the pad that this peel uses is something I have never used before. It isn’t paper or cotton-like, as with most exfoliating pads I’ve used. It’s a bit rough and combined with the acid, this made my skin a bit red. It also stings a bit. However, the redness and the stinging subsides after a few minutes. It dries into a sticky finish. I’m no stranger to the percentage of glycolic acid this one has so I know the results I would get. As expected, this softened and smoothened my skin but aside from that, this peel left my skin looking plumper the morning after.
