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!).
Liking the gentleness of this leave-on exfoliator after cleansing. Face does not feel too dry, and looks slightly brighter the next morning.
This product stings a bit when I first used it, and caused a minor breakout as well. So you should use a very small amount until your skin gets used to it. The delivery from Korea to Singapore took one week, which I felt did not justify the 'Express' delivery fee of close to USD $5.00 that I had to pay.
