Krave Beauty Kale-Lalu-yAHA is a skin resurfacing AHA toner that kicks dead skin cells to the curb, revealing more youthful, healthy skin, while also giving it a delicious dose of antioxidants from dark, leafy greens.
Say bye-byes to the look of discolourations, sun damage and fine lines with continued use of this 5.25% AHA.
Unlike some other AHA toners, this one is effective while still being moisturising.
Why Krave Beauty Kale-Lalu-yAHA?
There’s a short answer and a long answer.
The short answer if that it will give you softer, smoother, clearer and more even-toned skin.
This treatment toner contains Glycolic Acid, considered to be exfoliating royalty in skin care circles. The amount of Glycolic Acid at 5,25% is high enough to be effective but not so high as to be aggressive and irritating.
It has a pH of 3.5-4.5, which is ideal for penetration. The percentage of Glycolic Acid and the pH determine the free acid value, which is the amount of the acid that penetrates the skin.
The primary ingredient in this exfoliating toner is Aloe Vera, not water, making it feel soothing rather than drying.
