“This is the most gentle yet effective acne treatment I’ve ever used. This product can be used all over your face or as a spot cream. It has calmed my redness and cystic acne in a very short time. It also helped fade my hyperpigmentation as well.”
Maybe you want a little more in your serum, to cover all the bases. Well, the Azelaic Topical Acid 10% can do just that thanks to powerful ingredients like niacinamide, vitamin C, coffee seed and an advanced azelaic acid derivative. Together they create a powerful front against sebum production, congestion, dullness and discoloration!

“Great texture for an azelaic acid product, watery, leave a slight tackiness but dissipates after a while. Really helps improve skin texture by preventing the formation of closed comedones, and also helps with sebum control.”
Nothing is more stubborn at removing those stubborn dark spots than the 10% Azelaic Acid Booster! Created with potent azelaic acid, salicyclic acid and licorice root extract to bring your skin a clear, even and glowing complexion. Lightweight, oil-free and a great stand-alone product or team player with other skincare!
“I was more enamored with the salicylic acid and licorice in this product. It is super easy to mix into my moisturizer or use as a spot or area treatment because of the texture. It is not runny but still spreads so nicely.”
Another strong contender in the azelaic acid serum department! Thanks to its gentle formulation including aloe vera, panthenol, green tea and more, this serum can help to tackle congested pores, redness, hyperpigmentation and dullness! A hidden gem we’ve seen sparkling amongst the Picky community.

“This has been incredible. After using this one for a few weeks I love it and the results are equally amazing if not better (than other products). The green tea, aloe vera and colloidal oat help to soothe the skin and calm any redness. 15% is also a great and effective concentration, I notice I have little to no active breakouts.”
One word…improvement! With patience and consistency, you for sure will see a visible difference with the Faded gel cream. Including some heavy hitting ingredients like kojic acid, tranexamic acid, centella, niacinamide..even melatonin! Don’t believe us? Check out Picky for more reviews.

“I’m not exaggerating when I say this ointment had me hooked from day one. I noticed visible improvement on dark spots within the first night. The ointment smells like Nair or Sulfur, but that’s because they don’t add any fragrance. Bravo to Topicals for creating a product that truly heals and protects skin.”
