Erno Laszlo White Marble Duo Phase Vitamin C Peel at Holt Renfrew
After the summer months of my skin being overly exposed to the sun (even when I wear sunscreen), I start to notice slight discolouration in the pigment. This is one of the many downsides to having such fair skin. I have had my eyes out for products that contain high levels of vitamin C because it helps brighten the overall tone of the complexion.
Darker pigmentation spots are essentially sun damage, and vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, shown to reduce the number of sunburned cells as well as reverse age-related damage to skin. Using vitamin C on the skin regularly protects against developing dark spots and fine lines, but my everyday products are not cutting it right now so I was on the lookout for a more targeted treatment.
Taking vitamin C through a supplement or food is beneficial to your health, but to specifically target signs of aging on your face, topical vitamin C is best. In fact, applying vitamin C to the skin can be 20 times more effective than taking it orally. This leads me to my newest discovery- the Erno Laszlo White Marble duo phase Vitamin C Peel. This is an over the counter product available at Erno Laszlo in Holt Renfrew you can use once a week for an overall glow, or target areas (my forehead) 2-3 times per week to be more aggressive and get results quicker.
This set goes for $122 CDN and seems like you would get many treatments out of one purchase because the sizing is quite generous.
The clarifying two-step peel gently polishes skin as it fades dark spots and discolouration. Step 1 gently exfoliates; Step 2 activates brightening and moisturizing actives—you simply peel away to uncover instant radiance. You NEED to put step 1 on top of step 2. So you exfoliate for 3 minutes of rubbing step 1 on the skin, then 3 drops of step 2 goes on top and in blended in to the previous product. Judit Galambosi, the Lead Therapist at Erno Laszlo NYC told me, because her New York clients are often in a rush and don’t want two step products they can mix both products in their hands and apply to the face at once to get the brighten results, it will just be less exfoliating without the 3 minute face massage with step 1 alone.
The result of this White Marble Duo Phase Vitamin C Peel leave your complexion feels instantly new. The skin is smoother and illuminated.
Protective antioxidants and collagen-boosters combine to refine and renew skin, such as age-defying actives and brightening ingredients, including:
- Vitamin C—the formula’s star multitasker—to reduce dark spots and dullness, lighten skin and jump-start collagen production.
- Carrot seed oil to heal and balance dry or chapped skin, while helping fight age spots and sun damage.
- Lactic acid to gently exfoliate skin so it’s properly prepped to absorb brightening, hydrating and healing nutrients.
