“This, people, is a powerful facial in a little jar. My skin is softer, smoother, and more luminous afterward—the results are instantaneous.” —Gwyneth Paltrow
GOOPGLOW Microderm Instant Glow Exfoliator is inspired by the transformative brightening, smoothing effects of popular in-office microdermabrasion treatments.
It’s a dual-action microdermabrasion exfoliator that delivers the benefits of both physical and chemical exfoliation, instantly polishing away roughness, smoothing uneven texture, and revealing a healthy-looking, glowing complexion. The air-whipped, almost marshmallow-like formula is densely packed with a blend of four powerful glow-inducing microexfoliating minerals (quartz, garnet, alumina, and silica) plus glycolic acid to help sweep away dry, dead skin cells and refine the appearance of pores for skin that is visibly softer, smoother, and more radiant.
Microderm Instant Glow Exfoliator gets its color from the natural ingredients and essential oils in the formula. As these can vary in color from batch to batch, the color of this product will naturally vary, too.
