It is suitable for use as a :
1) Spot treatment twice a day for acne and lightening red/brown post-acne marks and/or
2) Full-face exfoliant two to five times a week in the evenings.

Suitable for all skin types.

If you are allergic to salicylic acid/aspirin or pregnant, or is averse to peeling, see our Blemish Corrector for a non-peeling, non-drying vitamins-based treatment.

How Glow Exfoliant was Developed
Glow Exfoliant was first learnt from a dermatologist that helped Jasmine clear her 14 years of acne.

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.

Originally only with Salicylic acid, we improved the formula by adding Mandelic acid, a gentle AHA.

Mandelic acid and salicylic acid create a potent AHA/BHA combination that resurfaces skin and deeply penetrates pores to dissolve clogs. Portulaca extract helps to soothe skin irritations and reduce sensitivity.

    Of all the products, this is a must-have. I trialled 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!

    Really good! It dries up my zip in a few days and it’s really effective in giving me a glow! I also used in on my little girl to help her zits and blackheads and it’s working well – very happy and satisfied!

    I use it to exfoliate every 3 days and my blackheads are significantly lesser. I will have pimples popping out occasionally and I just dap some glow exfoliant on it, it dries up the next morning. Thumps Up!!

  5. C.H. (verified buyer)

    Great for acne skin. After applying of new acne, the next day I see the acne has subsided tremendously. I have also applied on post acne scar, it lighten but not immediate.

    • (store manager)

      Hello C.H., you are right that for post acne scars it will take some time in lightening but using our products should speed up the process. Glad that Glow Exfoliant helps in calming and drying your acne faster.

How to Use

For specific blemish spots, wet cotton bud with solution and apply twice daily after cleansing. Suitable for both facial and body blemishes.

For full face exfoliant, wet cotton pad with solution and apply a thin even layer in the evening over the entire face. No need to rinse. Once skin condition improves, reduce frequency to no more than 3 times a week.

Avoid eye area. If tingling sensation is unbearable, apply Skinlycious Hydrating Serum over.

Visible peeling might be experienced initially but intensity will reduce after more frequent usage. If peeling is unbearable, reduce frequency of use. Otherwise, switch to Blemish Corrector for spot treatment.


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 Blemish Corrector.

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.
