TST Beauty Review: Lactobotanical Peel

May 31 2016 by Beverly

Brrr, it’s officially Winter… and already my skin feels tight and pallid from all of that heating and lack of sunshine. Boo. Bring back Summer.

To combat that Winter skin dullsies we thought we’d try a new face peel that infuses the skin with moisture, plumps it up and leaves you event ready the next day.

Meet the Aspect Lactobotanical Peel.

The Aspect Starter Kit available from Vanity Box.

Lacto-bo-whatical you say? Let me explain…

Lactic acid is an Alpha-Hydroxy Acid (AHA), which is combined with Canadian Willowherb (an anti inflammatory) to create the peel. It plumps up your skin because it has awesome skin renewal and collagen building agents (well hello younger looking skin!).

When the lovely Suzey of Vanity Box Beauty Ateliers asked me if I’d like to have one, I must admit I was a little reluctant. I hadn’t had a skin peel for years and I had memories of them not being super pleasant and leaving my skin kind of irritated.

But the new type of skin peels are nothing like the old school ones. You feel a small tingle on your skin when it’s applied and that’s literally it. You get to rest for 45 minutes while you basically have a relaxing facial.

It takes about 45 minutes and you can even leave your eye make-up on which is a huge bonus, if like Nic and I you always have to be somewhere…

Extreme close up! Bev the day after.

“This peel targets the epidermis (the uppermost layer of the skin), breaking down the glue that holds the skin cells together,” Suzey says.

“It allows for a faster cell turn-over and a more youthful appearance to the skin as the healthier layers of skin are brought to the surface more quickly.”

Suzey recommends a course of peels to get the best results, but even one will make your skin feel amazing.

The next day my skin felt super hydrated and any fine lines and wrinkles were plumped up nicely.
