Geek & Gorgeous Porefectly Clear
Geek & Gorgeous Porefectly Clear is a light gel exfoliant with 2% Salicylic acid (aka BHA) and Sarcosine to unclog pores and improve combination skin-related problems such as blackheads and oiliness.
Why We Love It
This formula is minimal but very well thought out: alongside hero ingredient Salicylic Acid are some helpful side kicks. It's not drying and is great at keeping things clear and calm.
Salicylic acid is a well-known oil-soluble acid that is the gold standard in treating blackheads and enlarged pores. This exfoliating superstar can unclog pores and balance blackhead-prone, oily skin by working inside the pores to clear out dead skin cells that clog them. Sarcosine joins forces with BHA to further improve combination skin-related problems such as excess oil production.
Apply after cleansing to dry skin. Use once a day or every other day in the AM or PM.
HOW TO APPLY
Apply 2-3 drops with fingertips. Avoid the delicate eye area.
Other serums, emulsions, creams, oils and sunscreen.
Due to potential irritation/sensitivity, it's not recommended to combine multiple exfoliants within the same routine.
IMPORTANT: The product contains BHA, do not use it if you are allergic to Aspirin.
