I’ve heard so much about this brand and how celebrities swear by it so I decided to try out one of the products; The Caviar Lime Acid Peel. It’s not as scary as it sounds! It’s basically an at home solution for dull and stressed skin. If you suffer from congested skin, open pores and uneven skin texture then this is the perfect product. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Victoria Beckham swear by this product. It has worked like a miracle for my skin and I swear by it – especially after late nights! My skin is smoother, pores are less visible and there seems to be less congestion.
So what’s in this product? – It has 10% Glycolic Acid, Caviar Lime and 10% brightening Phytic Acid to resurface skin cells, improve the look of pores and skin tone. Pineapple and Papaya fruit enzymes to moisturize and help improve the appearance of uneven skin texture. Stabalized Retinol to help reduce lines and wrinkles.
What is Glycolic Acid? – Glycolic acid is part of the group of active compounds known as AHA’s (alpha hydroxy acids). Derived from cane sugar: It has the smallest molecules in the group so is able to penetrate skin deeply and easily, making it the most effective for treating fine lines, acne, blackheads, dullness, oiliness etc.
What is Caviar Lime? – Caviar Lime is sourced from the subtropical rainforests of Australia, Caviar lime contains citric acid, normally found in lemons/limes and is a naturally powerful exfoliator. Whilst this fruit can be eaten, when applied topically caviar lime is known to brighten and smooth lacklustre, uneven textured skin thanks to its rich concentration of citric acid. The citric acid encourages cellular turnover, helping to banish pore-clogging skin cells to reveal a fresher, more youthful and even toned appearance.
What is Phytic Acid? – Phytic acid is a unique natural substance found in plant seeds. It takes care of your skin due to its antioxidant action as it reduces its oxidation while processing inflammation of the skin.
How do Pineapple and Papaya enzymes work? – The upper layer of your skin is mostly made of dead skin cells containing keratin protein. The enzymes work by specifically breaking down the keratin protein, resulting in smoother skin.
How to use – You should apply this to clean dry skin; just a thin layer all over avoiding eye area and lips. The instructions say that you leave it on for 15-20 mins but max an hour then rinse off and pat your skin dry carrying on with your usual skincare routine. I personally leave it on for a few hours and sometimes even overnight. It works wonders when I leave it on overnight!
