Exuviance Glycolic Expert Moisturizer
Today I am reviewing the Exuviance Glycolic Expert Moisturizer. Glycolic acid is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA). Off late I’ve been very particular about incorporating chemical exfoliants like AHAs & BHAs into my skincare routine. It has made a ton of visible and positive changes to how my skin feels and appears. If you haven’t checked my post on exfoliation with AHAs and BHAs, you may check it out here

Exuviance Glycolic Expert Moisturizer – Review
Exuviance Glycolic Expert Moisturizer comes in a sleek white bottle with a pump dispenser. The pump is quite robust and with adequate pressure dispenses out enough product. Two pumps are enough to cover the face and neck. The overall packaging is nothing fancy but definitely no-nonsense, hygienic and easy to travel with. The cream has a slightly thick texture but it’s very lightweight. It absorbs quickly into skin without leaving behind any residue. Once applied, you’d feel a slight tingling sensation that wears off in about a minute. This is due to the AHA in the moisturizer. This moisturizer is formulated (recommended) for Normal and Combination skin types which is rightly so because it’s not very hydrating. Dry skin would need a moisturizer to go on top of this. I use this cream every morning followed with a heavy duty sun block preferably 30+. Using AHAs and BHAs increases the skin’s sensitivity towards sun so using a SPF is very important.
This moisturizer works wonders for facial skin with texture issues. Within a week’s use, I saw visible results in my skin texture. My skin looks very soft, radiant and is so much smoother now. It adds suppleness to the skin and makes it firmer too. The product is also formulated with Vitamin E and Collagen building blocks that help in boosting skin’s elasticity slowing down signs of ageing. This also helps with acne as AHAs help in sloughing off dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. So regular use will considerably reduce the acne size and help in controlling them from worsening. This doesn’t prevent acne as it’s an AHA and works from the skin’s surface. AHAs don’t have the capacity to penetrate the skin and work from within.
Overall the Exuviance Glycolic Expert Moisturizer is a great AHA based product that work best on skin with texture issues. It shows visible results on dull rough skin with few days use. I am totally in love with this product and would buy it in the future.
Highly recommended for ageing skin, acne prone skin and dull skin with texture issues. This moisturizer works wonders in smoothing out the skin and making it supple and firm with use.
