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.
When I received this in February, I put it aside because I dislike the scent of blue tansy. I do try to revisit products that I initially thought were not for me, so recently I picked this up when I ran out of Graydon Fullmoon serum. One thing you can say about Bluh Alchemy's products--they really work, with subtlety and elegance. After less than a week, I was surprised to look in the mirror and see how plump and glowy my skin is. I will be finishing this down to the last drop. Still not wild about the scent of blue tansy, but the payoff is well worth it and the scent is growing on me.
I have been using this serum at night consistently and my skin has improved a lot. My skin looks visibly clearer and brighter. I am very surprised! If you are looking for an effective product to help you clear your skin without drying it, you might like this product. It dries matte and leaves some kind of a thin film on your skin (I use one pump for face) so I pat on a balm on top. Great product!
I'm really glad this serum was selected as a Hero product, because I would not have tried a retinol (botanic or synthetic) on my own. The results are really incredible. I only use it once a day, and I noticed after about a week that my skin was much more smooth and even in texture. It also seems more balanced in terms of dryness as well as less sensitive/reactive. I don't really have wrinkles yet, so can't speak to the effect on signs of aging. I use it immediately after cleansing, then add a mist and oil over it. I have not had any issues with pilling. Thank you Beauty Heroes for introducing me to such a great product!
I really wanted to love this serum. The smell is heavenly, extremely relaxing. The bottle is beautiful and even has a open/close nozel, very good quality. It goes on really well and seems to sink in quickly. BUT... it pills. If I try to add anything over this serum - like oil or moisturizer - it pills and rubs off almost like eraser bits. Then I am rubbing off all of my products.... don't even attempt to put makeup on over this. I can't even put a facial oil on over it, let alone think about makeup!
