Exfoliation enables proper absorption of actives and removes dull, bacteria-trapping dead skin. Exfoliation can also irritate and leave skin dry and peeling. Mad Hippie Exfoliating Serum is an impressive exfoliative that doesn’t sting, irritate or burn, yet gently removes dead skin with ZERO itchy, red peeling. And it is packed with all kinds of goodness to improve skin texture and clarity while fading discoloration. Apply it at night, and wake up to smoother skin!
About Exfoliating Sensitive Skin
Exfoliating sensitive skin is necessary but tricky.
Our three test subjects used Mad Hippie Exfoliative Serum for one week. All three experienced a major exfoliative impact with zero rubbing, scrubbing or skin irritation.
OF NOTE: Two of our three Style Chicks team testers have very sensitive skin. They cannot tolerate most traditional exfoliation scrubs or Glycolic peels higher than 10%. They had no problems with this serum.
why it works
While it is not irritating, it is powerful. Don’t layer it with other actives like Alpha Lipoic Acid, Retinol or Mad Hippie Triple C Night Cream. Plenty is going on already in this formulation, it contains 16 actives. There are aHAs, peptides, antioxidants and excellent buffers. Let’s take a look:
Use half a dropper 0f serum on the face and throat. It is okay to use around the eye area/orbital bone but keep it out of the eye. There is no stinging or burning. I wait about 10-15 minutes and apply moisturizer on top.
In the morning, the skin seems evener. There is no dryness. Upon face washing, dead skin just gently melts off without rubbing and scrubbing. There is no telltale redness or peeling flakes. Skin is just soft and smooth.
It is gentle enough to use nightly, I use it every other night. I find it effective to alternate off this serum and Mad Hippie Triple C Night Cream. Sensitive Skin users might try using Mad Hippie Exfoliative Serum 2 nights a week and the Vitamin C Serum daily.
