Details

A gentle yet effective exfoliator that smooths out texture and fades discoloration to reveal healthier skin. Kale-Lalu-yAHA is powered by AHAs that buff away excess dead skin cells and unclog pores so skin can breathe easier.

A Skin Refresh Button

Your skin kind of has a hoarding problem; it holds onto leftover residue from air and products you use. With these impurities sitting on the skin along with dead skin cells and pore-clogging bacteria, your acne is about to have a breakout moment. But never fear, Kale-Lalu-yAHA is here and its brought a broom. As you sweep Kale-Lalu-yAHA across your skin, sugar cane-derived Glycolic Acid unglues dead skin cells and lifts them away. Cue Hyaluronic Acid to add some soothing hydration and Kale to boost antioxidants. Now that’s a lean, green cleaning machine.

For Squeaky Clean Pores:

Start with Match Hemp Hydrating Cleanser and follow with Kale-Lalu-yAHA exfoliator to decongest skin.

Product Focus

Green juice, but make it skincare

Skin feel like it needs a green smoothie? Kale-Lalu-yAHA is packed with vitamin-rich leafy greens like kale, spinach, and parsley to give your skin an energy boost.

Work it

If you don’t like exfoliators, you’re probably thinking “Is it worth it? Can I work it? Put my thing down, flip it and reverse it?” Kale-Lalu-yAHA is not your typical exfoliant, infused with soothing and hydrating ingredients that keep irritation at bay. Go for it, Missy.

Spotty coverage

Who knew avoiding SPF as a kid would come back to bite us? Good thing Kale-Lalu-yAHA has Glycolic Acid to fade the look of dark spots and sunspots but not imperfect teenage judgement.

Tingling means it’s working

Kale-Lalu-yAHA is formulated at a 3.0–4.0 pH range so it’s normal to experience slight tingling. Don’t worry, all good acids here and no bad trips.

Skin Concern: acne, dryness, hyperpigmentation

“I've always struggled with acne ever since I was a teenager. I use Kale-Lalu-yAHA when my skin is feeling irritated and just not happy. This works wonders for my skin. I'll take a clean cotton pad and just put a couple of drops there and I will gently pat my skin with it. I love the way that it smells. It's not too strong, it's not too harsh. I love pairing it with Oat So Simple, KraveBeauty's Water Cream. These two are a power couple together. I'm super excited to try more of KraveBeauty because I know that I can always count on them.”

Combo - Dry Skin

I really wanted to love this but it just does not suit my brown skin. Tried it again twice with a moisturizer because I thought maybe it was my skin being sensitive but it broke me out each time and made my skin red.

Amazing Chemical Exfoliant

This is the first review I have ever written for a product; I've decided to write this review because this product is amazing and I don't want anyone to miss out. Ever since I was young, I never suffered from acne, but I always had these tiny pimples on my cheeks. They were not visible from a distance, but they always bothered me because it made my skin so textured and bumpy. Since my pimples weren't acne, the standard acne fighting products did not work on my face. Thinking it was fungal acne, I even tried products like Nizoral and Sulfur. Spoiler: none of these products worked either. Looking back, I wasted an insane amount of money by buying acne and fungal acne fighting products. However, after seeing James Welsh rave about this product on his Youtube videos, I decided to give this product a try. Right after the first use, I noticed an incredible difference. When I woke up the next morning, my skin was the smoothest it has ever been. In all honesty, I was too happy about the results and used the product three times the first week, which made my skin purge and have small breakouts. But, after I reduced the usage to 1-2 times per week, the breakouts immediately went down, and I am now left with amazingly smooth skin. My skin texture is not yet completely gone, but I am so happy with my results! I definitely recommend this product!!

Lovee this toner

I recently added AHA & BHA to my skincare routine and want to start slowly. Right now, I use this toner twice a week at night, along with a BHA physical exfoliator from Maelove (Make sure to wear sunscreen the next day because AHA &BHA makes your skin more sensitive to sunlight, and sunscreen should be worn everyday anyway~)Since everyone’s skin is different (as the description says), you can try and see what works best for your skin & decide how often to use this toner :) I’ve done a lot of research and learned about the purging process. When introducing BHA and AHA, our skin may go through a purging period, where there will be small red bumps that appear (It may look different for everyone, but for me I had red bumps on my skin). This is because the skin is going through a cleaning process, bringing all the blackheads and whiteheads to the surface. And sure enough, I experienced my first purging period and yes it was annoying to see all the red bumps (it can be a bit painful too), but it will get better! I heard a lot of good things from people saying they get less breakouts and their skin is clearer after purging. But yah, I am excited to see how my skin will look as I stick with using AHA and BHA in my routine. Another thing to mention is that the ingredient list is really good! It's filled with a lot of good stuff for your skin, so I feel really safe putting this on~ This toner makes my skin feel so soft and smooth. It also does not leave my skin feeling dry afterwards.…
