Ultra Gentle Smoothing Serum
Ultra Gentle Smoothing Serum by Renée Rouleau uses a 10% non-drying glycolic acid cream and lactic acid blend to dissolve away dry cells and lift discoloration to reveal smoother skin with fewer visible pores, lines, and wrinkles. Soothing, fragrance-free ingredients work to improve the moisture barrier function, keeping sensitive skin feeling calm and comfortable.
This is a safer and more effective way to exfoliate for those that get easily-irritated from abrasive facial scrubs. Skin types with redness or rosacea will respond favorably to this gentle, yet high-performance formula, and with continued use will find their skin acting less sensitive yet revealing a brilliant clarity. The result? Beautiful, healthier and smoother-looking skin by Renée Rouleau.
Size: 0.5 fl oz
