GOOPGLOW 5% Glycolic Acid Overnight Glow Peel Light

GOOPGLOW 5% Glycolic Acid Overnight Glow Peel Light

If you’re new to exfoliating or you have sensitive skin, this gentle but effective overnight glycolic peel was designed specifically for you. It helps refine, retexturize, and brighten skin while you sleep. Using the same proven ingredients as our 15% peel—glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, and mango, banana, yellow mombin, and Australian kakadu plum extracts—but with the glycolic acid level at 5%, the peel delivers powerful results, so you wake up with fresh, soft, smooth, beautifully glowing skin.


Smooth it on with a new, dual-textured peel pad (made soft enough for sensitive skin). It’s especially brilliant on the face, neck, chest, and shoulders (where we typically suffer the most sun damage). Use only one night per week.


The product is made for sensitive skin, but it is suitable for all skin types. For a more intense exfoliation, try our 15% Glycolic Acid Overnight Glow Peel.

Sunburn Alert: This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterward.

Here at goop we believe in making every choice count, which is why we’ve always been outspoken about the toxic ingredients used in personal-care and beauty products (all are effectively unregulated in this country). We’re also passionate about the idea that beauty comes from the inside out. So we use clinically proven and best-in-class ingredients at active levels to create skin care, skin-boosting ingestibles, and body essentials that are luxurious, deliver high-performance results, and enliven the senses with exquisite textures and beautiful scents. We don’t rest until we think our products are perfect—safe enough and powerful enough for noticeable results. (All our products are formulated without parabens, petroleum, phthalates, SLS, SLES, PEGs, TEA, DEA, silicones, or artificial dyes or fragrances. And our formulas are not tested on animals.) We hope you love them as much as we do.

5% glycolic acid

The gold standard for chemical peels, this absorbs into skin and removes dead skin cells and other debris via a chemical reaction while helping increase cell turnover.

Hyaluronic acid

The formula is made with three different molecular sizes of hyaluronic acid to hydrate different layers of the skin.

Trio of tropical fruit extracts

The naturally occurring fruit AHAs from mango, banana, and yellow mombin provide mild cell turnover while reinforcing the skin’s barrier function.

Australian kakadu plum

This unique superfruit contains up to a hundred times more vitamin C than an orange. It delivers topical antioxidant power to fight free radical damage in skin, addressing issues like dullness, uneven skin tone, and fine lines.

A goop Glow for Every Skin Type (Even Sensitive)

We all love the famous goop glow—the healthy-looking, bright, smooth, luminous skin we get from our bestselling 15% glycolic acid peel: “The results are just amazing,” says GP. “I swipe it on before bed, and the glow I wake up to lasts all week.” But because the peel’s so powerful, it can be too much for those with more-
sensitive skin like senior graphic designer Liz Martindale. So we made a new one.

How to Get Glowing Skin

We get a lot of questions about glow (GP’s makeup-free selfies are at least partially to blame), so we approach the subject from every angle.
