Halo AHA + BHA Evening Serum 30ml
Made with an 11% blend of AHAs (glycolic, lactic, phytic, citric) and BHAs (salicylic acid) this overnight serum gently scoops away dead skin cells and helps clear pores of excess sebum. Its plant oils and humectants buffer the potentially harsh effects of chemical exfoliants by providing nourishing moisture to the skin, allowing the serum to remain balanced and gentle. Further antioxidants and moth bean extract (a natural retinol alternative) repair the skin cells and clean up free radicals which cause fine lines and discolouration, thus helping to diminish the appearance of pores.
Best for dull, uneven, rough, or congested skin that could use an overnight resurface.
Key ingredients include:
AHAs (glycolic, lactic, phytic, citric) - These chemical exfoliants have large enough molecules so as not to penetrate the skin, making them gentle surface workers, loosening dead skin cells.
BHA (salicylic acid) - This exfoliating acid has a smaller-sized molecule that can penetrate pores to help rid them of blackheads and excess sebum to decongest and diminish their appearance.
Moth Bean Extract - A natural alternative to retinol, this boosts collagen production and stimulates cell turnover.
Coconut Water & Aloe Leaf Juice - Full of nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants, these both possess hydrating as well as anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties.
Sodium Hyaluronate - The salt form of hyaluronic acid that’s more skin-compatible than HA.
Rosehip Oil - A regenerative and brightening oil, rosehip oil’s abundant vitamins and antioxidants make this a powerful skin tone evening ingredient.
Tamanu Oil - With anti-inflammatory, wound-healing, and collagen-boosting properties, tamanu oil’s antioxidant- and essential fatty acid-rich make-up have made this a skin hero.
Prickly Pear Oil - Highly hydrating, this cactus-derived oil is rich in vitamin E, essential fatty acids, amino acids, and omega 6 and 9, which help boost the skin barrier’s health and moisture retention capabilities.
Raspberry Seed Oil - Super anti-inflammatory and moisturising, this oil’s generous antioxidant and essential fatty acid content help to combat oxidative stress and aid cell regeneration.
Rice Extract - With amino acids, vitamin E and ferulic acid, the protein in rice extract is skin-soothing and hydrating, but also a powerhouse with evening out pigmentation and brightening tone overall.
Watermelon Extract - The vitamin C and antioxidants in this ingredient help to moisturise and exfoliate, while promoting cell regeneration as well.
Lentil Extract - This works in conjunction with other fruit and plant extracts (like watermelon) to help moisturise skin.
Green Tea Leaf Extract - An antioxidant boss, green tea extract repairs free radical damage to skin cells while promoting healthy renewal and cell function.
Apply a thin layer to the face and neck after cleansing and toning. Follow with moisturiser. Can be used a couple of times a week or even every night, depending on your skin’s tolerance to acids, but not with other exfoliating products. Always wear SPF, especially the day after using the Halo serum.
