Hello all, this product has featured on this blog before but it is SO fabulous that it deserves a post for itself. No sharing the limelight kinda business.
The overnight peel is packaged in a very simple white opaque bottle (possibly to keep all acids stable) with a pump and plastic lid. Nothing fancy and nothing that would jump right at you. But hopefully the name of the product ‘Overnight Peel with Alpha Hydroxy Acids’ will catch your attention. Especially if you’re an acid junkie like me (ermmm AHA, BHA acids). Very easily incorporated in nightly routine 2-3 times a week after toning and before moisturizing.
Claims: Reveal dramatically fresher, newer skin overnight with this skin-brightening blend of glycolic sugar cane and fruit acids. Our skin-renewing formula contains 5% Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) for safe, effective removal of dead surface skin cells. With every use, skin tone becomes more radiant, pigmentation is evened and age spots are visibly diminished. 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten free, GMO-free.
Following morning my skin appears fresh, well rested, even and calm. I’m genetically cursed with pigmentation and puberty cursed acne scars so I need some magical AHA shizz in my life to make it all better. If by a miracle, I’m having happy skin day and it’s all calm, no angry spots I still use as overnight exfoliator and boosting collagen. My skin appears fresher, smoother and supple.

I’m no qualified chemist so with my countless years of researching each ingredient and being ardent follower of Mrs. Hirons none of these ingredients jump at it negatively. All good acids are the first few ingredients, followed by some fruits, skin moisturizers, and some preservatives. All in all, fab ingredients delivering amazing results. I highly recommend trying this product, especially at the price tag of under $ you can’t go wrong. And thankfully it’s freely available all over the retail stores and online stores.
