Description +


Surrender to soft, smooth skin with this powerful 3-in-1 resurfacing serum comprised of 8% vegan lactic acid, a trifecta of bioactive flower acids and polyhydroxy acid (PHA) to exfoliate, improve the look of fine lines, pores and dramatically re-texturize skin overnight.

This transformative, maritime-rich formula is brimming with proprietary algae, microalgae and aqueous herbs that visibly tighten, strengthen the skin barrier and flood skin with mega moisture. 

Plus, a splash of French sea water gently renews and refreshes for smoother, brighter, younger-looking skin. 

*For all skin types, especially oily and blemish-prone. 


A efficacious, transformative acid-based serum to re-texturize skin for clarity, even skin tone, improve look of blemishes, refine skin and minimize appearance of pores.

Great for sensitive skin

This is a great night serum for sensitive skin that wants some exfoliation & hydration! I will say it’s not super strong so you won’t get intense results from this serum but it’s amazing for sensitive skin that needs a chemical exfoliating serum
