Geek & Gorgeous Smooth Out
Geek & Gorgeous Smooth Out is the brand's strongest anti-aging focused exfoliant. With 12% AHA + soothing Nopal Cactus, it reveals fresh gorgeous skin overnight and gives you healthier, younger-looking skin with regular use.
Why We Love It
Our favourite exfoliant for addressing signs of ageing as well as brightening and smoothing texture. It's skin friendly, effective and can help increase collagen production!
We have designed Smooth Out to give your skin a clinically proven collagen-boosting amount of AHAs and, at the same time, to be as gentle as possible. The 12% glycolic and lactic acid combination removes the dead skin cells gently, but effectively from the surface of the skin and gives you a healthy glow overnight.
With ongoing use, it boosts the skin’s own collagen production, smooths fine lines, fades hyperpigmentation and boosts the effectiveness of treatments and moisturizers used afterwards.
We combined the AHAs with Nopal Cactus Extract that’s designed to reduce potential neurosensory irritation caused by higher amounts of alpha hydroxy acids and we also added extra humectants to boost the water-binding ability of lactic and glycolic acid.
We especially recommend it if your focus is smart-aging, if you have hyperpigmentation, or if would like more even, smooth and glowy skin.
Apply as the first step after cleansing to a dry face. You can use Smooth Out from once a week to once a day depending on your skin’s level of tolerance. You might experience some light tingling after application, which is normal and will soon dissipate.
HOW TO APPLY
Use it as a toner, either with a cotton pad or pour it into your hands and apply with fingertips.
Other serums, emulsions, creams, oils and sunscreen during the day.
Due to potential irritation/sensitivity, it's not recommended to combine multiple exfoliants within the same routine.
IMPORTANT: AHA acids make the skin more sensitive to the sun. Use a good SPF in the morning!
