Hydroxy Overnight Mask
or 4 payments of $12.50 with Afterpay
Salicylic Acid-based exfoliating and hydrating leave-on night mask, for acne-prone, oily, sun-damaged or sensitive skin. With soothing Aloe Vera, it helps to remove keratin and old skin cells while you sleep, ensuring new skin can thrive. As well as a mask, it can also be used as a spot treatment for breakouts or dry and chapped skin.
Note: should not be used during pregnancy.
With 5% Salicylic Acid (Beta Hydroxy Acid) for exfoliation and 10% Urea to moisturise and soften the skin this overnight mask is on skin that is prone to acne. It is also better tolerated (than Alpha Hydroxy acids) and highly moisturising and can be used as an occasional leave on exfoliation treatment for aging skin which is drier and has a tendency to sensitivity.
Being related to Aspirin, Salicylic acid has anti-inflammatory properties and is generally well tolerated 1. It exfoliates the skin 2 and has been shown to be effective in reducing acne 3, managing some of the signs of premature (sun induced) skin aging 4 (especially hyperpigmentation) and psoriasis 5. Its effectiveness as an exfoliator as also been shown to be enhanced when formulated with Urea 6 which is a (humectant) moisturising agent.
Use 1 – 2 times a week at night after cleansing, in place of other night-time products. May also be
used as a spot treatment for pimples (as needed). Discontinue use if irritation occurs.
Not for use during pregnancy.
