Together with powerful antioxidants from coenzyme Q10 and ferulic acid and a peptide (palmitoyl tripeptide-5), they provide a significant boost in collagen production, an effective approach to (acne) scars, pigmentation, large pores and a visibly more even, fresher complexion.
- Suitable for normal to dry / combination skin, especially with sagging and other (first) signs of aging. Also very effective for (pre) menopausal skin, acne (scars), large pores and pale (smoker's) skin.
- Glycolic acid (14%) removes dead skin cells, boosts the production of collagen and skin's own hyaluronic acid and fades pigmentation.
- Granactive retinoid (1%) is as effective as prescription tretinoin (vitamin A acid), without the 'downtime' (the skin is red, dry, flaky and very sensitive for a long time). Granactive retinoid stimulates cell renewal and collagen production and inhibits the breakdown of elastin and collagen as a result of UV radiation.
- Palmitoyl tripeptide-5 boosts collagen production and improves the complexion and texture of the skin.
- Ferulic acid is a powerful antioxidant that targets premature aging due to oxidative damage and reduces pigmentation.
- Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) is a powerful antioxidant, improves hydration and ensures a more even complexion.
- Tazman Pepper ™ has a calming and anti-inflammatory effect. Peruvic acid (hibiscus extract) moisturizes and provides light exfoliation, an even complexion and a radiant skin.
- Free from perfume, parabens, silicones, sulfate (SLS), phthalates, mineral oil, hydroquinone, triclosan, triclosarban and animal ingredients (vegan friendly). Not tested on animals.

FAQ about this serum:
I have never used glycolic acid or vitamin A before, can I still start with the Liquid Gold Midnight Reboot Serum?
If you are using products with glycolic acid or vitamin A for the first time, we recommend that you introduce them slowly so that your skin can build habituation to these ingredients. Start with twice a week and build up use step by step.
I have used the Liquid Gold Midnight Reboot Serum every night and my skin is now red and dry with flakes. Is this normal?
This is not an unusual reaction when using products with a high percentage of glycolic acid and / or vitamin A. We recommend that you use the serum less often in this case, for example every evening.
Can I apply a moisturizer over the Liquid Gold Midnight Reboot Serum?
Yes, you can! You can also use the serum on its own so that the active ingredients have maximum effect on the skin.
Why does my skin tingle after applying the Liquid Gold Midnight Reboot Serum?
This is a normal response to using products with ingredients such as glycolic acid and vitamin A. It tells you that the product is doing what it is supposed to do! The tingling will subside after a few minutes and the tingling will probably disappear completely over time. Your skin has then built up optimal tolerance for the product.
What does the serum smell like?
The Liquid Gold Midnight Reboot Serum has a spicy-sweet scent from the ingredient peruvic acid (hibiscus extract).
Can I use this serum if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
The serum contains granactive retinoid, a form of vitamin A. Unfortunately, you cannot use this serum if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Can I use the serum in the morning?
Glycolic acid and granactive retinoid (vitamin A) make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so we recommend using the serum only in the evening, and always in combination with a day cream with SPF during the day.

What is the difference between this serum and Liquid Gold?
Our worldwide bestseller Liquid Gold is a powerful product with 5% glycolic acid in combination with a low pH value. You can use Liquid Gold a maximum of 3 evenings per week. It puts the skin cells to work in such a way that the production of collagen, elastin and skin's own hyaluronic acid in the deeper skin layers increases significantly. This ensures better hydration and skin improvement from within. The Liquid Gold Midnight Reboot Serum is a more complex serum that tackles signs of skin aging with various active ingredients. It contains a higher percentage of glycolic acid (14%) and also contains vitamin A in the form of 1% granactive retinoid, together with palmitoyl tripeptide 5.
What is the difference between this serum and Beauty Sleep Power Peel?
Beauty Sleep Power Peel contains a different form of vitamin A, namely 0.5% retinol. Beauty Sleep Power Peel is an all-in-one night care; night cream, peeling and mask at the same time. It is a very powerful product that you can use a maximum of 1 to 2 times a week.
How do I use this serum in combination with the Vitamin A Serum?
If you are already using the Vitamin A Serum, you can alternate it every night with the Liquid Gold Midnight Reboot Serum. Or you use the Liquid Gold Midnight Reboot Serum only for your face and the Vitamin A Serum for your neck and décolleté, because the skin there can be more sensitive to higher percentages of glycolic acid.
Why isn't more serum coming out of the pipette?
If you find it difficult to get enough serum into the pipette, try this: lift the pipette slightly above the surface of the liquid and squeeze all of the serum out of the pipette. Then keep squeezing and put the pipette back into the liquid. Only then do you let go.
