Glossier Solution Exfoliating Skin Perfector
Unlike physical exfoliators that scrape off the surface of your skin, Solution gently sloughs dead cells away through chemical exfoliation, dissolving the bonds gluing problematic dead cells to the healthy skin beneath. With daily use, expect cleared acne and blackheads, smaller pores, and reduced redness. Skin’s texture will be smoother and softer, and the fabled glow of balanced, healthy skin will be in full force. Solution contains a particular blend of three acid actives for maximum efficacy: Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA), and Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA). Acids are your friend. Here’s the proof:

Glossier came out with a product that included 3 of my favs (glycolic
acid, lactic acid, and salicylic acid), I was so excited! I’ve been
hooked on The Ordinary’s glycolic acid solution for years, it has
seriously transformed my face.
to say, when I received the Glossier Solution I was more than a
little disappointed. This formula is terrible, it contains sodium
hydroxide as the SECOND ingredient. SH is extremely irritating unless
it is put at the very end of the formula (usually after something
calming). It has an exothemic reaction on the skin which causes heat
and flushing. Clearly Glossier decided to use sodium hydroxide as
their ph adjuster, but it was a very poor choice on their part. It
causes EXTREME dryness, redness, and itchy pustules. If you look
online for reviews there are so many of us who experienced the same
thing. We literally became red, irritated, and inflamed from this
The only good thing I can say about the Solution is that the
packaging is gorgeous. I wish Glossier put as much into their
formulas as they do their packaging, but I have had good experiences
with other products so I’m keeping an open mind. That said, the
Solution is not for me, nor is it for anyone with dry, sensitive,
mature, or human skin. ;) 2\5 (2 points for packaging).
