I have had quite the love/hate relationship with peels – on one hand they give me promise of brighter, radiant and more perfect skin, while on the other hand they often leave me with flaky, dry and irritated patches. So when I was introduced to the new Blue Plasma, a non-acidic daily peel that is gentle enough for all skin types, I was curious to see how my skin would fare. Triumphantly, after only just one week, any prior notion I had vanished and what was left was simply amazing, glowing skin.
I dove in head first and began using the product twice daily as recommended, though I am quite diligent about using products religiously in order to give them time to produce results. Intermittent use of any skincare is never recommended – consistency is always more effective. But being the impatient New Yorker that I am, I definitely appreciate when results come almost immediately as with Blue Plasma. With ingredients such as magnolia bark for anti-inflammatory results, blueberry extracts to boost radiance and salmon egg enzyme to encourage peeling action, this product helps to dissolve skin cells revealing fresher more glowing skin.
Initially after the first application, I was delighted to see how hydrated my skin stayed throughout the day, which almost never occurs for me from an acid based product. This was the biggest point of differentiation that I found with Blue Plasma versus other peel products. Skin is often exfoliated, but at the expense of stripping all the hydration out of it, leaving red, flaky, dry patches all over. After just a few days, the texture of my skin was so smooth and looked flawless. It seemed brighter, more radiant and surprisingly my pore size appeared smaller. Applying makeup was easier than ever because my skin was smooth, supple and hydrated which allowed the foundation to glide right on.
I continued my use for the next 30 days and found the results to get better and better. My skin is now looking the best it ever has and my foundation coverage has become sheerer and sheerer, as I am so proud to let my natural skin texture show through. For a makeup lover, that is the true test of a great product.
