Overview

  • If you prefer a more concentrated serum with glycolic acid, you may wish to consider BHA Exfoliating Serum S3 Pro with 3% Carnitine and 2% Salicylic Acid.
  • Facetheory’s leave-on liquid exfoliator has been reformulated with 5% BHAs – 2% salicylic acid and now with 3% carnitine – to target acne, dead cells, wrinkles and fine lines while hydrating and nourishing skin.
  • The new key active ingredient is carnitine, a beta hydroxy acid with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties proven to enhance skin hydration and help control sebum production.
  • Salicylic acid expedites skin cell renewal to reveal a softer and brighter complexion.
  • Green tea extract, an antioxidant rich in polyphenols, helps protect skin while chamomile, aloe vera and vitamin E soothe and condition.
  • Free of parabens, silicones, PEGs, SLS, SLES, and mineral oils. Vegan and cruelty-free. Made in the UK.
  • Facetheory products contain a high concentration of actives, so only a small amount is required per use.
  • Use on its own or underneath your favourite moisturiser.
  • Do not use if under the age of 18 or if pregnant.

+Directions
Apply a few drops to clean, damp skin, concentrating on blemishes, fine lines, dark spots and areas of hyperpigmentation. Follow with your moisturiser. This product contains a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. Test on a small area first. After your first full application, wait a day or two before starting regular use. Discontinue if irritation occurs. Do not use simultaneously with retinol products until you have seen how your skin responds to BHA. Do not use this product if you are allergic to aspirin. Do not use if under the age of 18 or if pregnant. Seek advice from your doctor.
