If your mornings are more hectic than you’d like them to be and you’re too tired to do anything but wash your face (on a good day) by bedtime, it’s safe to assume multitasking products are a large part of your skin care routine (or at least they should be).
Although a large part of my job involves making time to test hundreds of products every month, my personal routine can look very similar to yours. So when it was time to try out EnvyMedical’s Glycopeel 10 ($70), a one-step leave-on peel that exfoliates, moisturizes, lessens dark spots and blemishes and brightens skin with one pump, I wasn’t just seriously impressed, I also found a new key player in my skin routine.

Packed with glycolic acid for exfoliating and revving up the production of newer, younger cells, Lumixyl peptides for busting dark spots and a ruddy complexion, and lactic acid for smoother, more even-looking texture and tone, my skin already looked completely different (read: glowy and bright) after using it for a week (I used it in the morning and before bed).
Because of the high acid concentrations, you’ll likely feel a slight tingle once you apply it (avoid your eye area), but any sensitivity will lessen as you continue using it, as will any skin-related insecurities you have.
The bottom line: Requiring just 10 seconds a day for brighter, all around better-looking skin, Glycopeel 10 is absolute royalty in a world where immediate satisfaction is king.
