The 11% blend of AHAs (glycolic, lactic, phytic, citric) and BHAs (salicylic acid) gently scoops away dead skin cells and helps clear pores of excess sebum.
Plant oils and humectants buffer the potentially harsh effects of chemical exfoliants by providing nourishing moisture to your skin, so this serum remains balanced and gentle.
Antioxidants and moth bean extract, a natural retinol alternative, repair skin cells and clean up free radicals that cause fine lines and discoloration, and help diminish the appearance of pores.
Even healthy skin has its off days. Incorporating a resurfacing step into your skincare routine that not only exfoliates dead skin cells but also introduces repairing and nourishing helpers is basically the HIIT of skincare. To the eye of the beholder, Halo works to address uneven tone and texture, excess sebum, fine lines, and enlarged pores. But behind the scenes, Halo also repairs skin cell damage and stimulates cell turnover for skin that not only looks renewed but behaves healthier as well.
Apply a thin layer to face and neck after cleansing and toning. Follow with moisturizer. Can be used nightly, depending on your skin’s tolerance to acids, but not with other exfoliating products. Always wear SPF, especially the day after using Halo.
WARNING External use only. Avoid direct contact with eyes.
Pore Confession: Brilliant ideas can come to you while dreaming, and so can brilliant skin.
AHAs (glycolic, lactic, phytic, citric): These chemical exfoliants have smaller-sized water soluble molecules so as not to penetrate the skin, making them surface workers, loosening dead skin cells.
BHA (salicylic acid): This exfoliating acid has a larger-sized oil soluble molecule that can penetrate pores to help rid them of blackheads and excess sebum to decongest and diminish their appearance.
Moth Bean Extract: A natural alternative to retinol, this boosts collagen production and stimulates cell turnover.
Coconut Water & Aloe Leaf Juice: Full of nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants, these both possess hydrating as well as anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties.

FULL INGREDIENT LIST:
Like many brands, our formulas are held to E.U. standards, making us confident in their safety, but safety isn’t our only goal. An ingredient can be harmless but that doesn’t make it the best one for the task. There are lots of technically safe ingredients that are filler, meaning they’re not bad per se, but they don’t really do anything for you either, other than take up space in a formula that a better-performing ingredient could occupy. Every single ingredient in our formulas has a function and purpose, selected for having the most beneficial role in our skin’s health.
