Sleep Glycolic Time Release AHA Overnight At-Home Peel

R 625.00 R 1,225.00


An overnight at-home AHA peel featuring encapsulated glycolic acid, which can deliver fast results while you sleep.

This bi-weekly treatment can address dull, uneven textured skins who want visibly brighter, smoother skin - fast.

Harnessing a true glycolic acid value of 10% for enhanced skin brightening results, Sleep Glycolic effortlessly leaves the complexion visibly radiant, smoother and decongested.

Radiant Skin

Sleep Glycolic exfoliates the skin to reveal a visibly glowing complexion.

True 10% Encapsulated Glycolic Acid

The high concentration formula is time-released into the skin overnight to gently deliver the powerful AHA, for ensured skin comfort.

Healthy Skin Barrier

Sleep Glycolic is non-drying on the skin - helping to maintain the natural protective barrier function.

How It Works:

Sleep Glycolic is the Medik8 approach to at-home glycolic acid.

  1. Glycolic acid is the most powerful of AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids). As a result, glycolic acid can address more stubborn skin concerns such as uneven texture and a lacklustre complexion.

  2. High strength at-home glycolic products (most commonly daily toners) are readily available and are often directed for regular, everyday use. This has the potential to oversensitize the skin, and impair the natural skin barrier function. That’s why at Medik8 we believe that occasional use of glycolic acid is best - not daily. Leave daily acids to super-gentle PHAs (polyhydroxy acids, found in Press & Glow).

  3. Instead, Sleep Glycolic takes an innovative approach to at-home glycolic acid, harnessing the powerful exfoliating effects of glycolic acid in a bi-weekly treatment without the downsides.

  4. Glycolic acid is encapsulated in a crystal cyclodextrin ‘shell’ that is slowly broken down on contact with the skin. The encapsulation gradually delivers the high strength exfoliating acid into the skin overnight to minimize any potential for discomfort. With a total 10% free active acid, Sleep Glycolic has the power to effortlessly deliver exfoliation benefits to the skin. This is ultimate high-strength glycolic acid, without the downsides.



How To Use:

For use 2-3 times a week.

After cleansing in the evening, smooth a pea-sized amount of Sleep Glycolic onto the face, neck and décolletage, avoiding the eye area.

Follow with other serums and night moisturizer. Leave on overnight.

Always wear sunscreen the next day after using Sleep Glycolic.

A note on layering; as Sleep Glycolic is a direct acid, it should be the first step in your evening skincare routine. Layer all other serums and moisturizers over this.

Patch testing prior to use is advised. Refer to for an in-depth guide to patch testing.
