Glow Recipe Strawberry Smooth BHA + AHA Salicylic Serum


The fabulously fruity Glow Recipe family is growing and I couldn’t be more excited!

Give a warm welcome to the brand new Strawberry Smooth BHA + AHA Salicylic Serum.


Powered by our 10% Clarity Acid Complex™ (a special blend of 2% salicylic acid & mandelic acid (AHA+BHA), strawberry, azelaic acid and succinic acid) this wonderfully juicy smoothing serum has been created to help clear breakouts, refine pores and clarify and calm your complexion.

Presented in a manner in which only Glow Recipe could conjure up, the bottle resembles one of the serum’s key ingredients which as you may have guessed, is strawberry.


The soft, red glass bottle features tiny details of indented seeds to resemble those of the delicious fruit and a pump dispenser for hygienic and measured product release.

If (like me) you can suffer for congested skin but have the added complication of having delicate or sensitive skin which can react to harsh products, this serum could be for you.

Kiss goodbye to drying, harsh acid treatments and welcome some fruity nectar into your life.


Within the 10% Clarity Acid Complex™  formula you’ll find 2% Encapsulated Salicylic Acid (BHA).

Salicylic Acid gently dissolves blemish-causing buildup and balances oil production and because it is close to your skins own natural pH level, it does so with minimal irritation.

Mandelic Acid (AHA) helps to smooth rough texture, Azelaic Acid Liposome boosts the performance of the salicylic acid to gently calm sensitized, blemish-prone skin and Succinic Acid works to hydrate, soothe and decongest your skin, leaving your complexion looking brighter and healthier.


Meanwhile, a naturally occurring enzyme found in strawberry water and leaf extract get to work rehydrating and resurfacing your skin while reducing the production of excess oil which can cause build up and in turn, blemishes.

Also crammed into this silky serum you’ll find the holy grail of skincare ingredients, hyaluronic acid to plump, deeply nourish and restore moisture to your skin all day long.

Offering an additional comfort is Allantoin, which moisturises, protects and smooths the skin while Bisabolol (a soothing form of vitamin B) brings its skin brightening benefits to the table.


Silky, feather-light and refreshing in texture, the serum possesses the softest, most subtle aroma of fresh strawberries which creates a fresh, sweet, pleasant multi-sensorial experience upon application.

It is light enough for use on my combination/oily skin without making it feel heavy or weighed down, clogged or flooded.

Quickly absorbed, it leaves your skin feeling instantly quenched and soft without a hint of oiliness.

Designed to be used on freshly cleansed skin prior to your moisturiser, it not only gets to work quickly but works as an excellent primer for your moisturiser, helping to boost long-lasting hydration for younger, healthier, more radiant looking skin from morning to night.


Results of clinical trials boast some pretty impressive stats, with 100% of participants agreeing that the serum has reduced their blackheads, 96% agreeing that it helped minimizes the appearance of their pores, 96% reporting that it has reduced their breakouts/blemishes and 90% agreeing that their skin texture looks and feels both softer and smoother.

Glow Recipe’s Strawberry Smooth BHA + AHA Salicylic Serum is available now from Cult Beauty and costs £36.
