I was always under the impression that skin peeling procedures are meant to be performed by skilled professionals. Collistar Glycolic Acid proved me wrong. I started looking into the subject of chemical face peeling and found endless supply of skin rejuvenating acid based products. I was a bit skeptical when i stumble on sea of reviews from girls with normal to oily and even acne prone skin swearing my acid based products. Technically acids dissolve the upper layer of cells to trigger repair. Sounds scary but most pealing products contain small percentage of acid which is borderline harmless. Some of the benefits of using acid based products is gentle but deep exfoliation, keeping skin oiliness at bay and minimizing the visible appearance of wrinkles. Sounds like one of those miracle products so i gave in to the hype and bought the latest release by Collistar Glycolic acid.
The consistency is very light and absorbed easily by the skin. This product is also great for layering under your moisturizer. I normally used it as part of my evening routine, once or twice a week instead of a serum. Since Collistar Glycolic acid is my first skin peeling product i can not really compare. What i observed over few weeks of use is that my skin appears more clear and plump. Also pores and blackheads around my t-zone were less visible. On my dehydrated skin this product alone felt a bit drying but when followed by moisturizer there were great results.
