Rapidly boost your radiance with this multi-tasking AHA and PHA serum. This milky, ultra-concentrated formula dramatically helps with the appearance of hyperpigmentation, dark spots, fine lines, and uneven texture. Gentle exfoliants, lactic acid (AHA) and gluconolactone (PHA), work with brightening licorice root to reveal a smoother and healthier-looking complexion.

  • Lactic Acid, Mandelic Acid, and Gluconolactone (PHA) exfoliate and improve clarity
  • Polishes away the build-up of dead skin and excess sebum
  • Quickly improves the look of fine lines and promotes radiance

What makes L.A. Refining Serum unique?

Doesn't flare up my acne prone skin

I have used their acne products and love them, but noticed they don't help with my blackheads as much so ordered this one as well. It does tingle as other reviewers have stated, but doesn't cause redness for me. I have been alternating each night with retinol as the website recommends, but my skin seems to be responding to this better than the retinol so I may switch to just using this. It does seem like its helping with blackheads, but I am curious to see if daily use will make a bigger improvement with blackheads.

Amazing results on acne prone skin

I alternate between this and my acne serum. The combo keeps my skin clear, hydrated, and smooth. I no longer use foundation from the products I use from this line.

Love it

I found this company almost a year ago and have been hooked ever since. I have been using the LA refining serum for about two months now and LOVE it. My skin tone is evening out, it’s fading some acne scars and my face is so soft after I put it on!

Age: 40 - 55
Skin type: Normal

I am fairly new to this product. I am hoping to see lighter sun spots with continued use. So far I have noticed that it does sting a little and cause some redness in my skin so I use it only at night. My skin does look bright and vibrant the morning after use and I am excited to see the results over more time!
