One of my favorites products is a good AHA serum. And why? because in my case it helps with the luminosity and pigmentation of my skin. Glycolic acid has been an ally for this to my type of skin.
But with so many options in the market it is difficult to choose a good and effective one, but today you may find a very good option.

My review: This serum was a game changer for me in the last few months. My skin looks brighter, and I had no breakouts. Also, the effect of the exfoliation benefits, kept my skin soft and more even.
Regarding to pigmentation it did not fade too much my spots, but there are very few over the counter products that do it. In my case I get rid of my spot with IPL. That been said I did notice a slight change and there less visible.
You need this is you are looking for a chemical exfoliator, soft enough that does not peel your skin, but effective enough to see the benefits.
