  • Key Benefits
    • Smooth & Hydrated

      Skin is visibly hydrated, supple and smoothed.

    • The Perfect Base

      Over time, Press & Glow helps to create a perfected skin surface which creates a better base for the next steps of your skincare routine and makeup.

    • Improves Visible Radiance

      Helps to visibly brighten and even the tone of the complexion. The skin is left visibly glowing, smoothed and toned. The overall visible health of the skin is maximised.

  • How It Works

    Balance is key when it comes to exfoliation; overuse of powerful AHAs everyday can often lead to sensitisation of the skin and premature skin ageing due to the skin’s inability to repair itself. PHAs are made up of larger molecules than AHAs and BHAs, meaning they only exfoliate the surface of the skin. This makes PHAs the perfect match for those who want to achieve true daily exfoliation while keeping the skin barrier healthy.

    1. PHA gluconolactone works on the skin surface to exfoliate dead skin cells, to reveal a fresher, more radiant appearance.

    2. Gluconolactone works perfectly in partnership with vitamin A, helping to improve the visible results of the gold-standard skincare ingredient by promoting visibly smoother textured skin and hydration.

    3. Prickly pear extract helps to support natural exfoliation, while aloe vera and acai extract work with the gluconolactone to hydrate and soothe the skin.

  • How To Use

  • The Science Behind

    “Polyhydroxy acids (PHAs) are a new generation of exfoliating acid. PHAs are different to traditional exfoliating acids, as they have more hydroxyl (OH) groups within their molecular structure. More OH groups make the molecule larger. They work on the skin's surface without disturbing the delicate layers that lie beneath. This ensures optimum skin exfoliation, while remaining gentle on the skin, to reveal a visibly brighter, smoother complexion. PHAs also have powerful humectant properties, meaning they draw moisture in to increase skin hydration. This ensures PHAs are gentle and soothing on the skin - without any of the drying effects that are commonly associated with acid toners.”
