I am always looking for great skincare products and with this line I’m so happy I don’t have to go to the department store and pay department store prices but still get the same great effects! I am concerned about aging and use glycolics to try to help me keep my skin looking young!
Potent skincare ingredient Glycolic Acid can help keep skin looking fresh and glowing, naturally exfoliating dead skin cells to reveal more youthful, acne-free, and even-toned skin. Dermatologist and CVS Beauty Board Member Dr. Dina Strachan shares her favorite Glycolic Acid treatments below.
“Glycolic Acid is a real multi-benefit ingredient,” said Dr. Strachan. “It can help create a dewy complexion, reduce fine lines, discoloration, and sun damage, stimulates collagen for more suppleness, and helps clear acne by unclogging pores. It’s best to avoid the sun with use, and be careful when using other exfoliating agents such as retinoids, salicylic acids and physical scrubs.”
Here are some of Dr. Strachan’s top Glycolic Acid picks:
@ the Drugstore: Dr. Strachan’s favorite at-home Glycolic Acid treatment is the NEW skin effects Glycolic Five Minute Facial Kit ($24.99), which is a high-performance facial available exclusively from CVS/pharmacy or online at cvs.com
The new 5 Minute Facial Kit includes a Skin Treatment and a Radiance Serum to deliver a breakthrough, at-home treatment in two easy steps: First the Skin Treatment, rich in Green Tea, Lavender and Glycolic Acid, refreshes skin, delivering a more vibrant, even-toned complexion. Then the Radiance Serum, rich in Green Tea, Jojoba, Grape Seed Oil, and
Glycolic Acid, is applied to help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Combined, these treatments create a high-performing facial, resulting in a fresh complexion in just five minutes.

I have been using the facial kit for a few weeks now and am loving it. It doesn’t leave my skin dry or red at all and my skin has a tendency to be on the sensitive side. I have noticed my skin looking brighter and my skin tone looking more even which are both big pluses!
The new Glycolic Night Cream provides intense overnight hydration with soothing botanicals. A special blend of Olive Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil and Meadowfoam Seed Oil deeply moisturizes, while soothing Kokum Butter helps to reduce the appearance of redness. Vitamin E conditions and helps to smooth the skin.

The nightcream is my favorite. It feels rich and luxurious and it makes my skin look really great! The skin on my face has never been softer and I love how the scent to the cream isn’t too strong or medicine-y as some of them can be.
