Beginners Exfoliating Serum - 5% Lactic Acid + 1.5% Probiotic
Share this product on
Why is this different?
A rare combination of Lactic acid and Probiotic that works effectively on skin texture, skin tone and brightens the skin, along with improving the skin barrier. There is added Hyaluronic Acid to provide hydration to the skin. This exfoliating and hydrating combo works well to gently exfoliate the upper layer of skin, while hydrating the skin. The less concentration of AHA and probiotic is perfect for people with sensitive or dry skin
How Does it Work on the Skin?
- 5% Lactic Acid (AHA) is a humectant that lightly exfoliates the upper skin layer to provide an even skin tone and smooth skin texture
- 1.5% Probiotics (Lactococcus Ferment Lysate) fights microbes and foreign particles and also balances skin pH and hydration.
- 1% Hyaluronic Acid hydrates the skin and gives a subtle glow to the skin
- Can be used by all skin types.
How to use?
- Apply 2-3 drops on to the skin after cleansing.
- Dab until the entire product is absorbed into the skin.
- Use of moisturiser and sunscreen is compulsory after using this product.
- Preferably to be used during the evening.
- Use upto 3-4 days a week.

It’s a gentle and effective serum for beginners. Start slow if u are new to exfoliating serums and then build it into ur pm (strictly in pm) routine up to 3 times a week. Follow up with a hydrating moisturiser. Use of spf 30 or higher sunscreen is a must in daily am routine (non-negotiable). Brighter (works slowly on pigmentation if that’s ur concern) and smoother skin can be seen after 2 weeks of usage. Purging/ non purging is subjective to each user.
I am more of a glycolic acid person. Into chemical exfoliation since more than a year now.. When this product launched, I was thoroughly enjoying their 18% AHA & 2% BHA. As during winter my skin tends to become dry, I thought 5% lactic might be a wise choice. Honestly speaking.. Didn't expect much initially.. But ohh boy.. Did it surprise me.. I have noticed a glow the next morning.. My skin looks clean & clear. It is so beautifully formulated that everyone can use it.
I'm loving it. Sucha nice product!
Mild exfoliant which is good for someone with deep complexion, especially for beginners.
Is this a leave in serum?
