ABOUT THIS BRANDUpon discovering and experimenting with dozens of rare botanicals that she witnessed to have transformative physiological effects on the skin, Becky Blüh, Founder of Blüh Alchemy Skincare sought a formal training in cosmetic chemistry. During this time, she worked closely with top natural chemists to develop what eventually became an edited line of botanical skincare that utilizes synergistic blends of potent native extracts to guard against premature aging while protecting against environmental aggressors and oxidative stress. With a small, treatment-focused range featuring a wide spectrum of rare botanicals, Blüh Alchemy delivers a blühprint for achieving optimal skin health, naturally.
I had already happily been using a Vit C product from another brand, but it was a messy powder, so I was curious to give this one a go given what I'd been told about shelf life of Vit C. I really loved this product. Despite the fact that it's a small bottle, one pump goes a long way so it's lasted a long time. It smells nice too and absorbs quickly. All the Blue Alchemy products I've tried now have been great.
I postponed using this when it came in the Beauty Heroes box because I already had a vitamin C serum I was using. I didn't think anything would be better than the results I saw with the ***** Elephant C-Firma. I was very wrong! I started using this about two weeks ago and within a few days I noticed that my skin looked brighter, fresher, firmer, more youthful. I had fewer dark circles/bags under my eyes. I think this is because it contains astaxanthin, green coffee bean oil, and gotu kola--my skin has had favorable results from these ingredients in other products. It is a big selling point that this is not just vitamin C but also is packed with antioxidants. I thought the $155 price tag was shocking until I used it. I think it's quite worth it, especially if you have signs of aging already. I love that this is shelf-stable, which has been a big drawback to using vitamin C products. To top it all off, this has the scent of gin and tonic, which I love. Combining this with the toning elixir also has a mild but effective exfoliating effect. Beauty Heroes has really been knocking it out of the park in 2019!
