GLYCOLIC ACID 10% CREAM - CELL RENEWAL from Life Essentials [Review & Giveaway]

My thoughts:  I recently tried the Life Essentials Skin Care Eye Cream and reviewed it. I found it to be lovely, excellent quality. Here is a link to my short Instagram review and feature. CLICK HERE I recommend.

When given the opportunity to explore the Glycolic Acid Cream, I thought perhaps this, too, would be a lovely product. I was not disappointed.

There is a warning that the glycolic acid cream could make the skin more sensitive to the sun. I am finding this in a plethora of products on today's market. So as a precaution, I use it once daily at bedtime. I tend to rotate through the products I have on hand, so by doing this I don't get too much sensitivity taking place. Personally, my makeup foundation has some sun screen in it which is protective.

The cream is white, and goes on with a non-greasy feel and sort of a white film. I gently rotate my fingers all over my face while applying using a nice massage to the skin method. This eases the cream into the skin's pores creating a nice layer to work while I'm sleeping. I also apply the cream under my chin, down my neck, and onto my chest. I found that the following morning my skin feels soft and cared for. Lovely.

An elderly lady with absolutely no wrinkles once told my mother.....

Every night cleanse your face and CREAM it. Use whatever product you can afford..... CREAM IT! 
So this Life Essenials Skin Care Glyolic Acid 10% Cream is a good product with which to cream your face nightly and the glycolic acid is said to help with the process of cell renewal.
A good source of information about skin care and products, or rather ingredients in the products, can be found at the Skin Cancer website - CLICK HERE. Specifically note.... "Today, vitamins are incorporated into many topical anti-aging products. ... Alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs, which also increase sun sensitivity) are another important topical anti-aging ingredient. Glycolic acid is the most beneficial, since it enhances dead skin shedding and helps correct skin discoloration."

About the product (from Life Essentials website)Our deep penetrating fruit based Alpha Hydroxy cream will soften skin as old layers are sloughed away and new ones are brought to the surface; use for younger and smoother skin. May make skin more sensitive to the sun. Find it - click here

  1. 1) Eye cream as I have lines around my eyes I want to minimize

    2) Neck cream as I have lost elasticity in my neck and it looks untended to, so I need help to freshen it up

  2. Here are the two products that caught my eye:
    I'm trying to include peptides into my anti-aging routine and peptides are supposed to help with collagen production.

    I am always looking for an affordable high percentage Vitamin C product with ingredients that I believe are effective.

  3. I completely agree with Monique. Same issues & reasons. Neck & eyes. Thanks for the opportunity.

  4. Product #1 Vitamin C Serum because I heard vitamin C really improves skins appearance especially wrinkles.

    Product #2 eye cream as it helps with wrinkles around the eyes and boosts collagen

  5. 1) Vitamin C serum - for sun spots and discoloration
    2) Eye Cream - for wrinkles

  6. (1)Product #1 & why,Retinol serum -- softens and heals the skin with the most efficient and effective moisturizing system.

    (2)Product #2 & why Peptide Complex - Moisturizer --- timulation supports the healing and repair response in the skin, increases skin thickness, refines the appearance of wrinkles, evens skin tone and texture, and restores elasticity and firmness to the skin
