Detailed Info

Glycolic acid is an effective exfoliant that breaks down the bonds between the outermost layer of skin cells, allowing them to shed and reveal fresh and radiant skin underneath. Glycolic acid is derived from sugar cane and belongs to the alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) family, which is known for its ability to improve skin texture, tone, and appearance.

Glycolic acid has multiple benefits for the skin, such as:

- It helps to renew the skin, reducing signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines.

- It helps to unclog blackheads and prevent acne by clearing out the pores and excess sebum.

- It reduces imperfections such as dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and scars by gently exfoliating the surface layer of the skin and promoting an even complexion.

- It smoothes the skin by refining its texture and minimizing the appearance of pores, bumps, and roughness.

- It improves the absorption of other active ingredients by enhancing their penetration into the deeper layers of the skin, boosting their effectiveness and results.

Lesielle's advice: Glycolic acid is the most recommended exfoliant for normal or dry skin types needing gentle but effective exfoliation. If you have oily, combination or sensitive skin, Salicylic Acid may be a better option for you.

This formula is powered by our recognized Lesielle's Isolated Formulation.

You can select your active ingredients in 2 ways:

Option 1 (recommended), Take our quiz. This is the most advanced solution because it takes into account multiple factors like your lifestyle, concerns, skin type, and even active ingredient synergies.

Option 2, Select yourself. If you have some experience with skincare, you may like to decide by yourself. In this case, consider reading each active ingredient product page to get supplementary information about its properties. 
If you are starting in skincare but you like a DIY custom skincare approach, we have created a decision-tree guide to orientate you: Actives Selection Guide.pdf

NOTE: This decision tree is a simplified selection process approach. If you want the best results, we recommend you do our quiz or study the properties of the active ingredient and select the ones that, in combination (each active can have multiple effects), address your concerns in the most effective and complete way.

When to Use


Day & Night
Sunscreen is recommended during the day.


Sensitive skin: Glycolic acid may cause irritation or sensitivity for some people, especially those with very sensitive or damaged skin. Therefore, it is especially recommended to patch test before using glycolic acid products and to start with a low frequency of use. 

Sun Protection: It is important to use sunscreen when using glycolic acid products, as they can make the skin more prone to sun damage.

Step 1: Cleanse your skin (ideally with a non-ionic cleanser)

Step 2: Create a single dose and apply your freshly-made custom skincare.

Step 3: Apply sunscreen if required. Try to use an oil-free sunscreen to avoid adding extra oils to your skin (your base has already provided the correct amount).

All of Lesielle's products undergo dermatological testing to ensure their safety. However, since each person's skin is unique, it is always recommended to perform a patch test before using a new active ingredient in your customized skincare system. This is especially important if you have sensitive skin. Patch tests are a simple way to ensure that your skin does not have any adverse reactions to a new product.

Here's how to perform the patch test:

1. Apply a small amount of the product to your forearm.

2. Wait for 24 hours.

3. If you experience any redness, irritation, or burning sensation during the test, discontinue the use of the product and switch to an alternative solution.

All actives contain 6ml of hyper-connected active (x10 times a standard concentrated serum), and have a minimum duration of 100 uses.

Of course, the bases and actives can be removed, stored and used again for 12 months.

Although this can happen in traditional cosmetics, with Lesielle you do not have this problem. This is because the active ingredients are mixed right at the moment of application and therefore do not have time to interact with each other. This is one of the major advantages of the isolated formulation. The only thing we do not recommend is to use the same ingredient twice or to combine two exfoliating actives (range imperfections) to avoid an action that is too powerful for the skin. In addition, you will have to take into account, but this is something to be learned by each person, which ingredients your skin tolerates.

Although all our actives have passed dermatological control individually, due to their high concentration, our recommendation is that you always mix the actives with a base cream in at least a 1:2 mixture.

We must begin by clarifying that there are no active ingredients that are compatible or not with sensitive skin, since it can react to any active ingredient, no matter how mild it may be. What we can say is that there are active ingredients that are more or less likely to be compatible.

You can find the degree of compatibility with sensitive skin in the data sheet of each active ingredient. In addition, you can filter in the category of active ingredients by their expected "compatibility" and, if you are in a physical store, you will find it indicated on their packaging or corresponding box.

The main properties are those in which the active ingredient is most effective. Secondary properties are properties that, as their name indicates, are also present, but are not the most outstanding properties of the active ingredient.

We recommend always testing each active and each base separately (especially on very reactive skin) to ensure that each of the elements are compatible with the skin on which they are to be used.

Lesielle recommends the following testing process:

First, test a base with each active separately. Apply to a sensitive area of the skin (behind the earlobe or on the inside of the forearm) and wait 48h to confirm good compatibility.

Then, once the actives have been found to be compatible individually, we should test their incremental mixing, increasing the number of combined actives as follows waiting after each test 48h.


Being a base B and the actives we want to test A1, A2 and A3:

B + A1 / B + A2 / B + A3.

B + A1 + A2

B + A1 + A2 + A3

At Lesielle we value the suggestions of our customers. Please write to us in our contact area so that we can take it into account for future releases.
