Shop Exfoliating Serums

Exfoliating serums deliver a whole new meaning to beauty sleep. Simply smooth on your serum at night and let your overnight facial work its magic so you wake up with fresh and radiant skin.

Exfoliating serums help repair and protect your skin, becoming a valiant ally in tackling aging skin, avoiding breakouts, eliminating blemishes, and nourishing a dulled complexion.

The serums we stock are designed with powerful blends of natural alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) that unclog pores, remove dead skin cells, and promote cell renewal.

Apply nightly after your cleanser and before your moisturiser to work towards smoother, more luminous skin every day.

Brilliant BHAs for Oily Skin

Those with oily skin types benefit from treatments containing BHAs, which are deep pore exfoliators, excellent at clearing congestion and sebum. 

Give your skin a deep clean with the Medik8 Blemish Control Pads, which allow for convenient application of their potent BHA exfoliating serum. High concentrations of Salicylic acid works to dissolve dirt and oil and prevents build up and breakouts. 

Get that Glow with Glycolic Acid 

Glycolic acid is one of our favourite AHAs and the hero ingredient in some of our best exfoliating acid serums. 

An AHA exfoliating serum we love for brightening dull skin is the Alpha-H Liquid Gold. This is also one of our best exfoliating serums for reducing fine lines and minimising pores. 

We also recommend the Pixi Glow Tonic for a gentle approach to this powerful ingredient. 

Exfoliating Treatments for Sensitive Skin 

Physicalexfoliants and exfoliating night serums with potent AHAs and BHAs are often too harsh for sensitive skin types. Those with skin prone to irritation tend to prefer serums with Lactic acid, which moisturises as it gently exfoliates. 

Skincare professionals love the Skinceuticals Retexturing Activator, which is an oil free serum suitable for all skin types. This Skinceuticals exfoliating serum is retinol free, but still exfoliates the skin and promotes cell turnover while promoting hydration for softer, smoother skin.

Love it!

I mostly use this when my skin feels dry or sensitive. Although it is a retinoid, I find it more hydrating but not heavy!

Smoother, clearer skin!

I received this as a deluxe sample and I must let it be known that my skin just loves Glycolic Acid and has a large tolerance for it, but this was a winner for me! My pimples/ texture was noticeably reduced after finishing the 7mls and it wasn’t irritating at all.
Would definitely recommend!

Strong but effective

I was worried to use, because i have really sensitive skin, but I first tried the lowest strength acid and i found once my skin was use to it, i was able to use the next strength up (which i am still trying to get my skin use to), because first time i used it, it was very strong for my skin, but its still a great product
