There are many reasons why I like PureCeuticals AHA Apple Exfoliating Serum ($54). It feels really nice on application, and absorbs well. I check my skin 30 minutes after any product application and with the AHA Apple Exfoliating Serum my skin looked more dense, clear and bright. It has a gentle, fruit-based exfoliant, which I really appreciate since serum exfoliants often feel like they punish your skin while you are waiting for the promised effects. This was a joy to use because it left my 60+ year-old dry skin looking fresh and renewed. PureCeuticals claims you will be able to see a difference from this 'Peel in a bottle!" after first time use and it is true.
I started using the PureCeuticals AHA Apple Exfoliating Serum in the summer, but it made my skin overly sensitive in the heat, so I waited until the weather cooled down to continue sampling the product.
When I resumed trial, my face felt so smooth it was hard for me to stop touching it! It looked like I just had a facial. When I started using the Exfoliating Serum, I applied it every other day, but now I apply it every night at bedtime and in the morning. The results get better every day. I use two pumps of it, which is enough for my face and neck.
My skin tone looks much brighter. It is a keeper, I would definitely purchase it and look forward to trying other products in this line.
