A Powder and a Peel

A Powder

This is a new way to apply vitamin C. Essentially it's a very fine powder that you have to mix with other products in the palm of your hand before using, but the results are better.  The format of this formula is a suspension of very fine L-Ascorbic Acid powder and, as such, provides the most direct exposure of extremely high concentrations of Vitamin C topically.  It makes us feel like a scientist using it, but as far as convenience goes, this is a fail.  It's quite messy and we're not about to apply this everyday.  We usually mix it with our moisturizer (it doesn't mix very well with the hyaluronic acid).  Beware, it might sting for the first two weeks! 

A Peel

A High-Strength Lactic Acid Superficial Peeling Formulation that feels like an intense retinol to us and we like it! It can feel a bit tingly upon first application, but it really feels like your pores have been cleaned out the next day. This is to be used once at night before bed (since it makes you more sensitive to the sun). We like to alternate one night with our retinol and one night with this now.  This 10% formulation offers mild exfoliation and is supported with a purified Tasmanian pepperberry known to reduce signs of inflammation and sensitivity that is often associated with exfoliation.  They also offer a 5 % version of this if your skin is very sensitive.  We love this product as it really exfoliates and reduces inflammation by soothing at the same time. Your skin tone and texture will be smoother and brighter. It actually had great reviews for people who are usually sensitive to harsh exfoliants. This might be our new favorite.
