What it is
Skin resurfacing exfoliator that kicks your dead skin cells to the curb, revealing youthful, healthier skin while also feeding it delicious antioxidants from dark, leafy greens. Kiss good-bye to the appearance of discoloration, sun damage, and fine lines with regular use.
Who needs it
"My skin feels congested and clogged, and I want to regain the youthful glow I lost."
How to indulge
2-3 times a week before bed, soak a cotton pad with Kale-lalu-yAHA and swipe over clean face, avoiding the eye area. No rinse needed.
In real life
There are no rules. Slide Kale-lalu-yAHA into your routine based on your skin’s cravings. Liah uses Kale-lalu-yAHA 2 to 3 times a week while her mom uses it every night :) Pay attention to your skin's resiliency as everyone's skin is unique.
If you're a beginner
AHA 5.25% is a great concentration to start if you're a AHA beginner. At first, you can mix Kale-lalu-yAHA into your favorite moisturizer. This concoction would act as a buffer slightly interfering AHA with fully absorbing into your skin. Then move it up to your first step in your evening skincare routine. Try it once a week then build it up to the frequency that your skin is most comfortable with.
Glycolic Acid (Sugar cane derived) 5.25%
A real game changer in your skincare routine! Glycolic acid is an effective chemical exfoliant that gently resurfaces skin texture and prevents clogged pores. With regular use, this nudges your skin’s cellular turnover slowly, fading the appearance of hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and fine lines.
Dark, leafy greens (kale, spinach, parsley)
A vital energy booster for the skin, the antioxidants packed in these greens are the best thing you can treat your skin with—and that’s why we call it Kale-lalu-yaha! Not just that, it’s also chock-full of vitamins and minerals too. What more could you ask for?
Aloe + Hyaluronic acid + Vitamin B5
These are all natural hydrators which replenish, hydrate and soothe skin. Once you apply, you’ll feel instant hydration, especially if you pair this with a moisturizer that locks down it all down.
Allantoin soothes skin while buffering any possible irritation from the chemical exfoliation process. This is an absolutely wonderful ingredient which brings both moisturizing and soothing relief to a sensitive, inflamed skin.

Tell me more
AHA is the most effective in the pH range of 3.0-4.0, so you might feel a slight tingling sensation at first, but don’t stress — that’s a good sign! It means the formula is giving your skin love! We do not recommend using the product on days your skin is sensitive. AHA may increase your skin’s photosensitivity, so apply broad-spectrum sunscreen liberally (which we hope you are doing nonetheless!).
A gentle and soothing serum that ”feeds” and strengthen your skin from within.
This is my 2nd bottle of Kale-Lalu-yAHA and I have to say, I am officially converted. I haven't used any other exfoliator after being able to purchase it in my country. It's effective enough that I can feel a mild sting (NOT painful at all) and having it exfoliating my skin but gentle enough without irritating my skin at all. I use this whenever my skin feels a little grubby and in need of some "deep cleaning" to get all the nasty stuff off my face. One bottle lasted me for quite a long time which is very surprising. The only downside is the packaging. The aluminium cap is definitely more eco friendly since it can be recycled. However with prolonged usage there will be some product collecting on the dispensing hole and the inside of the lid, creating crystals and somehow "eroding" the lid? The only way is to make sure that no leftover product is on the mouth of the bottle and keep it clean. It can be a bit hard for people that travel a lot as there will be product bound to be stuck on the hole and the inside of the lid.
After the first application, I was able to remove a very very embedded blackhead below my mouth, u know~ the very hard to extract area above our chins. My face look fresher and make up was easy to apply on the next morning! Even my colleagues commented that I looked radiant.
I was a bit skeptical to use a chemical exfoliator but after hearing so many great reviews, I decided to join the bandwagon as well and I've not looked back!!
This gives my face an instant glow after using it and i use this once or twice (depending on my skin needs) a week so i usually save it before an important day that week. I personally use a cotton pad to swipe because I feel that this method works better for me compared to patting it on my face using my hands.
I have gone through about 5 bottles and it remains and will still continue being one of my HG in my skincare regime! <3
