ka-ching! that’s the sound we’ll get in the office after you read all about glycolic acid.

one of the most effective and widely used AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids, a type of exfoliators), glycolic acid is found naturally in plants and fruits, like sugar cane, pineapples and grapes. when used in skincare, it works wonders at treating blackheads, blemishes and uneven complexions, all while smoothing and softening your skin.

and how does it work? I hear you say.

well glycolic acid works by dissolving the glue that holds together your dead skin cells. so it lifts the pigment from your skin and increases collagen production, without tearing your skin apart, like an aggressive scrub or exfoliating brush.

if your skin is on the sensitive side, start by using it twice a week. at first, glycolic acid may accelerate whatever pimples and other skin conditions were already working under the surface of your skin and quicken their appearance on the surface by speeding up the entire cycle dramatically. please do not be alarmed. this is completely normal and part of the process. just like you'd breakout if you went for your first facial, you know? you shouldn’t be afraid of purging as it’s not your body rejecting or having a bad reaction to the booster, it's just accelerating what’s already happening to eventually clear it.

and since we love a versatile product here, if you’ve got a dry scalp, apply it on your hair before your shower. Let it do its magic for 10-15 min before rinsing and proceeding with your usual shampoo and conditioner. It will feel tingly, but your scalp will be clearer and not sore at all.

we added chamomile to soothe the effect of glycolic acid. so make a point of using it regularly to actually see results. use recovery on at night to avoid light sensitivity. mix with serums, creams or masks, and apply to face and neck. or, apply 2-3 drops directly to your skin.

ps. the colour is from mixing glycolic acid with butterfly pea flower


chamomile water, butterfly pea flower, glycolic acid, glycerin, hyaluronic acid, natural preservative (*salicylic acid, *sorbic acid, *benzyl alcohol).

how to use

our boosters are like supplements for your skin. you can add them to your daily regimen as standalone products or mix them with other products to improve their performance.

use recovery on at night to avoid light sensitivity. mix with serums, creams or masks, and apply to face and neck. or, apply 2-3 drops directly to your skin.

you can also apply to your hair to exfoliate your scalp and get rid of dandruff. it will also help retain moisture and prevent your hair from breaking.

note: you might get slightly red the first time you use it. not to worry, your skin’s just getting used to glycolic acid. these effects fade after several uses. for optimal results, we recommend to use it consistently for four weeks.

My skin is glowing

I bought this not really knowing what it would do I just wanted an exfoliator and saw that it has great reviews and I am here to add to those! I put it on once at night every few days, as it suggests, and the next morning my skin always looks so good and I’m glowing. My skin overall has cleared up a lot with made by Sunday products so I would 100% recommend 😁
