description

We have designed Smooth Out to give your skin a clinically proven collagen-boosting amount of AHAs and, at the same time, to be as gentle as possible. The 12% glycolic and lactic acid combination removes the dead skin cells gently, but effectively from the surface of the skin and gives you a healthy glow overnight.

Lactic Acid
With ongoing use, it boosts the skin’s own collagen production, smooths fine lines, fades hyperpigmentation and boosts the effectiveness of treatments and moisturizers used afterwards. We combined the AHAs with Nopal Cactus Extract that’s designed to reduce potential neurosensory irritation caused by higher amounts of alpha hydroxy acids and we also added extra humectants to boost the water-binding ability of lactic and glycolic acid.

who is it for?

Everyone! Well almost. :) Unless your skin is very sensitive or prone to redness (in this case take a look at Calm Down) Smooth Out should work. We especially recommend it, if your focus is smart-aging, if you have hyperpigmentation, or if would like more even, smooth and glowy skin.
Skin type
all skin types except for sensitive, redness-prone
Skin problem
dull skin, aging, dark spots, uneven skin tone
Texture
water-like, weightless liquid, like a toner

how to use

It’s an ideal first step after cleansing your skin. Use it as a toner, either with a cotton pad or pour it into your hands and pat it on as men do with after-shave. Avoid using around the eye area!

You can use Smooth Out from once a week to once a day depending on your skin’s level of tolerance. You might experience some light tingling after application, which is normal and will go away soon. You can reduce the tingling sensation, if you apply the product to completely dry skin. Do not use other exfoliants or scrubs at the same time as Smooth Out.

IMPORTANT: AHA acids make the skin more sensitive to the sun. Use a good SPF in the morning!

Shelf life: 2 years from production (unopened), 8 months PAO (period after opening)

ingreds & research

key ingreds:

Glycolic acid – The most proven and most researched AHA that not only gently exfoliates the surface of the skin, but also boosts the skin’s own collagen production and fades brown spots.

Lactic acid – The second most researched AHA that is not only a gentle, but effective exfoliating acid, but is also a fantastic humectant.

Nopal cactus + yeast extract – A unique combination of cactus and yeast extracts containing low molecular weight peptides, carbohydrates and bound minerals designed to reduce neurosensory irritation caused by the application of high amounts of AHAs.

Galactoarabinan – A natural polysaccharide extracted from the larch tree that reduces Trans-epidermal Water Loss as well as increasing the efficacy of skin exfoliants.

Panthenol – A classic skincare ingredient that is a reliable soothing, moisturising and skin-protecting agent.

Xylitylglucoside + Anhydroxylitol + Xylitol A sugar based humectant trio that increases the skin’s water-binding capacity and strengthens the skin’s barrier.

Sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer A new generation, cross-linked hyaluronic acid whose water binding ability is several times greater than the already amazing water-binding ability of hyaluronic acid which helps keep the skin nicely moisturized.

Tolles Peeling

Ich benutze das Peeling am Abend nach der Reinigung. Ich gebe mir eine kleine Menge in die Handfläche und trage es mit den Finger auf und klopfe es ein. Ich habe das Gefühl, das sich mein Hautbild deutlich verbessert hat. Meine Haut morgens ist weich und sieht geglättet und gepflegt aus. Mir gefallen die Produkte von G&G wirklich gut. Ich benutze auch das Mighty Melt und den Jelly Joker sehr gerne und werde meinen Bestand bald erweitern. Vielen Dank für so tolle Produkte mit einen super Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis.

Surprisingly good!

Why surprisingly? Because the first time I used it my face had a somewhat sensitive reaction, which did not surprise me much, as I have sensitive skin. I thought I took too brave a risk with that AHA concentration. After some days I had some skin patches come off which did not scare me, as I know skin has to adjust to a new product. I used the product again a week later, and my skin was very much OK with it (just have to be careful not to put too close to the eye area, which is common sense with AHA). I see all the benefits the product is offering to do: decreased pores of the nose and chin, smoother and healthier looking skin. Started using twice a week and my face loves it, so I will definitely continue using it. One more G&G product (I also use A-Game 10 and C-glow serums) that will be in my regular skin routine I believe for quite a while :) Thank you G&G for affordable and effective skin products!!!

The best AHA

In my menopause years my skin has become dull, oily and acne-prone. This exfoliant has been a life-saver. I use it everyday (I´m an experienced acid-user) and the results are mind-blowing. My skin is clear, youthfull and soft. LOVE IT
