Are You Experiencing?

Reduces Acne Fast

Skinlycious Glow Exfoliant breaks down pimples, blackheads, cystic acne fast and
exfoliates built-up layers of dead skin cells to reveal a smoother glowing complexion underneath.

Key Active Ingredients

Salicylic Acid

A beta hydroxy acid that is able to deeply penetrate pores, dissolving clogs and reduces acne.
Helps to lighten post-acne red/brown marks too.

Mandelic Acid

An alpha hydroxy acid that gently resurfaces the skin, revealing a healthy glowing skin.
Mandelic acid also reduces blemishes and lightens pigmentations.

Purslane / Portulaca Oleracea
Extract

Rich in antioxidants, purslane helps to reduce skin irritations and soothes skin.

How Glow Exfoliant was Developed

Glow Exfoliant was first learnt from a dermatologist that helped our founder, Jasmine, clear her 14 years of acne. Originally only with Salicylic acid, we improved the formula by adding Mandelic acid, a gentle AHA as well as adding Purslane/Portulaca extract to soothe skin and reduce sensitivity.

Not all salicylic acids are the same! While researching and testing to improve on Glow Exfoliant’s formula, Jasmine tested an encapsulated salicylic acid. With just one use, her whole face broke out into little bumps overnight! Thankfully, by using back the old formula, Jasmine was able to clear her major breakout.

You might ask about the alcohol in the formula. We have tried many versions without alcohol but it is just not as effective. The alcohol in the formula helps to kill bacteria as well as allow deeper penetration of the ingredients. This is the only product in Skinlycious with alcohol.

How To Use

For Specific Acne Spots

Read about the success stories of fellow Acne Fighters & Skinlycious users.

“No more pimples
Pimples are gone and I have smooth skin now 🙂 The Glow Exfoliant works very well. Spots flatten the next day. I’m so glad to have found Skinlycious!”

“Cystic Acne Cleared”
I struggled with cystic acne for many years. When I stopped my prescription medications, my acne always came back with a vengeance.
When I chanced upon Jasmine’s story, it felt like she was telling my story. I decided to try the starter kit and never looked back. My acne is now gone and skin is clear. It’s been more than a year and my acne has not returned with continued usage of Skinlycious.

“Acne finally went away and never came back!”
My big acne got smaller the next day after applying Glow Exfoliant! After using the cleanser, my skin is soft, smooth and not dry. The whole Skinlycious range is my skin-saver. I’ve struggled with acne since my teens and I finally have clear skin at 40 years old!

“I’v gained back my confidence after 8 years of self-consciousness”
The Skinlycious Clear Skin Essentials Kit helped me get rid of the acne that I have been struggling with for 8 years. My favorite is the Glow Exfoliant because it penetrates into my skin and removes all the dirt in the pores. Redness and acne scars are gone too. My acne was completely cleared after 3 months of use!

  1. Renee Chu (verified owner)

    Good! Used the trial skin before buying the actual sized products and this really help reduce a lot of pimples

  2. MR Tay (verified owner)

    Fast dispatch from seller. They informed me that 25ml bottle is unavailable and replaced with 5ml bottle and equivalent, on top of that gave me additional bottles. Most important the product helps to heal pimples or acne faster. Thank you!. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

  3. Melissa (verified owner)

    Of all the products, this is a must-have. I trialed the starter kit early this year and saw visible results, so I changed my whole skincare routine to Skinlycious. Sadly, the moisturiser and face oil were not hydrating enough for my severely dehydrated and distressed skin, and I started breaking out more and in new places. After 3 months, I gave up and returned to another range of hydrating products. However, I still continued to use the calming cleanser, glow exfoliant, and clarifying serum. 4 months on, the cystic acne that I’ve had for a few years (I suspect it was a reaction to a product I was using and/or hormonal) is finally gone, and the scars are lightening up. Thank you Skinlycious for returning me my skin and confidence!

    Acne skin has definitely improved after using the glow exfoliant for awhile now. I use this every night to exfoliate my face, and it just works wonder. Skin is softer, occasional acne bumps are much much smaller. Pairs well with the hydrating serum and doesn’t dry up my face at all. Love!

    This is great for me.. i have acne without heads and those are so hard to heal. After applying this I could sometimes see white head coming out from my acne which is comforting. Downside is if I used too much, my skin may peel. But overall its more suitable for me than tea tree product.

    As a regular customer of skinlycious,
    I have been using this glow exfolliant for quite sometime already. I really like it a lot as pimples will slowly reduce in size.

  52. Dione Pereira (verified owner)

    Works well together with the hydrate set n I believe the old pimple scars are clearing because of this. Amazing!!

  53. Melissa (verified owner)

    My skin type is combination and mild sensitive. Had sudden breakout a few months ago till I tried this recently where acne on my skin finally became less bumpy and fading off slowly. Love how it worked faster than expected which will be great for anyone who wants to cure their big acne swiftly. But won’t recommend it to those with very sensitive skin as it would cause a tingling sensation.

  54. Hui Wyn (verified owner)

    Controlled my acne very well!

FAQ

Q1. How long do I need to use before I can see results?
A1. You will see existing pimples or bumpy skin flatten with a few applications. But for new acne to stop popping, it needs time to work as a skin cell cycle is 28 days. For best results, use together with Calming Cleanser and Hydrating Serum. A good estimate is 2-3 months. Some people might experience faster results but usually those are the milder cases. After 3 months, if you still do not see any improvement, it’s best you consult a doctor.

Q2. I experienced some biting/tingling sensation when I applied this. Does this mean that it’s not suitable?
A2. It’s common to experience some biting sensation when you first use Glow Exfoliant as it’s acidic. This sensation will reduce in intensity with more frequent usage. Apply Hydrating Serum over it if you find it unbearable and the sensation will go away. However, if uncomfortable sensation last more than 5mins even after applying Hydrating Serum, you are probably not suited for this product. Switch to Clarifying Serum.

Q3. I experienced some peeling. Is it normal?
A3. Yes, it’s normal to experience some mild peeling when you first use it. However, if you experience excessive peeling, you might be over-zealous applying Glow Exfoliant. Either put less drops of the solution or reduce usage to once a day. Thereafter, gradually step up the dosage. The peeling will reduce as your skin gets used to acids and dead skin cells are regularly removed.

Q4. Why is there alcohol in Glow Exfoliant?
A4. It is needed to kill bacteria that causes acne and to allow deeper penetration of our products in our skin. We tried formulating without alcohol, but it is not as effective. The rest of our products are alcohol free. 

Q5. I’m Pregnant. Can I Use Your Products?
A5. Congratulations on your pregnancy! Our Glow Exfoliant contains Salicylic Acid, it’s better to be cautious when using this ingredient when pregnant. Although not widely proven, some studies suggest that it can potentially cause birth defects and should be avoided while you are pregnant.

We suggest to switch to Clarifying Serum as your spot corrector while you’re pregnant. The rest of our products are generally safe to use during your pregnancy. 

Q6. Does Glow Exfoliant work for fungal acne?
A6. Glow Exfoliant contains salicylic acid that worked best against yeast. However, it’s still recommended to do the half-face test to determine if any reactions will occur. Salicylic acid is a keratolytic agent used for fungal skin infections. It causes exfoliation of the skin’s stratum corneum layer, resulting in removing dead skin cells together with the fungi.

Also, using Calming Cleanser will help calm your skin and reduce redness while ridding your skin of daily grime and dead skin cells without leaving it dry or irritated. We recommend seeing a doctor to confirm if you are suffering from fungal acne. 

Q7. Can Glow Exfoliant help with my acne scars?
A7. If you are referring to dark or red marks, both Clarifying Serum and Glow Exfoliant can help to lighten those marks. If it’s pitted or deep scars, a consistent long usage of Glow Exfoliant will help to make the scars less obvious.

Q8. What’s the best way to apply Glow Exfoliant? I’m having trouble.
A8. Do not use your fingers to apply Glow Exfoliant directly. It doesn’t work as well as you will not get as much solution on the acne.
Use a cotton bud or cotton pad.

If you are like Jasmine, who prefers the cotton pad, this is what she does:
1. Take the four corners of the cotton pad and pinch it together.
2. Drip Glow Exfoliant on the flat top part of the cotton pad.
3. Spread it on your acne/pimples/whiteheads/blackheads and even those red/brown marks left when your acne is healing.
For cystic acne and blackheads, hold the cotton pad on the pimples longer, so that more solution is absorbed.
4. After using on one side of the face, you can inverse/flip it over and use it on the other side of your face. This helps to minimise bacteria spreading too.
