Rovectin Clean LHA Blemish Ampoule

You guys know that I am happy with my BHA & ever since I found the Paula's Choice BHA Exfoliant I haven't really considered trying other exfoliating ingredients, but I got to try out the Rovectin LHA Blemish Ampoule recently & I am really glad I gave it go. ⁣Why? Because now I have something to recommend to all my sensitive skin readers whose skin didn't really agree with salicylic acid. Read on!

So, what exactly is LHA?

It's Lipohydroxy acid/Caproloyl Salicylic Acid, which is a derivative of salicylic acid (BHA). It has 
  • a higher molecular weight compared to salicylic acid
  • a pH ~ 5.5 &
  • is more lipophilic. 
This means that it dissolves better in oil/sebum but doesn't penetrate as much into the skin. So it is a BHA but it works more on the surface like an AHA.... and it is better tolerated by sensitive skin.

The Rovectin LHA Blemish Ampoule belongs to the Rovectin Clean line - which focuses on minimal packaging so that the products can be recycled easily. 

True to that, the ampoule comes in a green-tinted glass bottle with minimal printing on it. The brand gives you a cute sticker sheet that you can use to customise the look of your bottle. The stickers can then be taken off once you finish the product and put in the bottle for recycling. 

I think that the clean minimal packaging is wonderful, I love how beautiful & minimalistic it looks. The stickers though cute are unnecessary I feel. However, I see how it might appeal to some. The opening of the bottle doesn't have a stopper, so you need to be a little careful while taking the dropper out and putting it back in.  

The actual product has a thick serum-like consistency, but it gets absorbed easily & isn't tacky. ⁣
It's fragrance-free, cruelty-free, vegan & hypoallergenic.⁣ I have a video right here showing you the consistency and texture of the serum.

It can be used all over or on specific areas that are more prone to congestion. But since the quantity is small, I prefer using it on targeted areas. ⁣It provided gentle exfoliation while being hydrating & I didn't face any irritation. I switched my usual BHA with this ampoule for the past month & it has maintained my skin well - minimal congestion & no breakouts. ⁣
(for reference: I have combination skin, prone to breakouts & congestion).

Price : 1499 INR for 15ml

It's available on Pretty Bee - Code C&D10 (non-affiliate) for 10% off (non discounted items) on orders of Rs. 1000/- & above. ⁣⁣⁣

⁣Overall, I think that the formulation is very good & I am happy to find a chemical exfoliant that is very gentle yet effective. It can be a good alternative for those who can't tolerate other chemical exfoliants.⁣
Bonus points for the gorgeous green glass bottle. However, it is on the expensive side given the quantity, so I recommend using it on targeted areas. There is a larger 50ml bottle available too, but I haven't seen that in India yet.
