Intense Mini-Peel - 5% Salicylic Acid
Our 5% Salicylic Acid Mini-Peel is most often used by those dealing with acne-prone skin. This Intense Mini-Peel will exfoliate the skin rapidly, and thus, your skin will, in fact, peel within a few days of use. It is an effective pore cleanser and anti-inflammatory that is able to penetrate the oils that block the pores, making it well suited for those with acne or Rosacea. BHA has the ability to penetrate into the pore (AHAs do not), and thus can exfoliate inside the pore as well on the surface of the skin; that makes it effective for reducing blemishes, including blackheads and whiteheads. pH 2.5
