This exfoliants means business, it’s a scrub that can be used on the face and body. You don’t need a lot to get a great smooth finish. Only need to use 2 x a  week for the face, body every 2nd day or daily if there are ingrowns.  Its a hardworking hybrid formula that combines physical (Jojoba and Silica beads) and chemical (Glycolic Acid) exfoliants to thoroughly clean and polish the skin’s surface and lower layers, leaving it decongested, hydrated and calm.

Pro Tips

We’ve found Glycolic Scrub 14% to be particularly effective at eradicating ingrown hairs after laser hair removal, waxing, or shaving, as well as treating kilaris pilaris (those rough-feeling bumps that appear on the skin, especially on the back of the arms).


This is very different from the others, it’s thick and white unlike the other clear ones. It is the BEST spot treatment for acne. Dot this on a pimple and leave it overnight and next night if it’s still around. just great to shed excel dull skin especially on pigmentation and acne!
12% Glycolic Acid performs a gentle chemical exfoliation, stimulating healthy cell turnover to improve skin’s tone, texture and radiance. Tea Tree Oil’s excellent decongestant and anti-inflammatory properties make it ideal for oily and combination skin. Great for the body too and lovely mixed with a bit of Multi Active Oil ?

The best exfoliation, I use this more than moisturiser! It’s a moisturiser consistency, you put it on overnight (even for three most sensitive skins) or can jist do it for 10 mins, then wash off in the morning and voila, smooth bright skin!

Pro Tips

We recommend pairing Refine AHA Glycolic Toner with either our Skinstitut Gentle Cleanser or L-Lactic Cleanser rather than Glycolic Cleanser 12%, the combination of which could be too stimulating (read: irritating) for some skins.
