Professional peel at-home Algenist Blue Algae Vitamin C™ Dark Spot Correcting Peel in-depth review

Birmingham, UK

If anything good came out of 2020 is my love for Algenist, a cult favourite from across the pond, focusing on ingredient science with a special interest in Alguronic Acid, their patented algae-originated super ingredient found in all of the brand’s products. A special new (ish) launch have caught my attention early and after waiting patiently for its UK launch, I was able to get my grubby hands on it and I've never looked back. See, I had some issues with over-exfoliation in the past, so the last thing on my mind was to introduce another strong exfoliant into my routine, but I also missed results associated with professional-grade peels. Enter Algenist Blue Algae Vitamin C™ Dark Spot Correcting Peel and what a journey we’ve been on. All these months later, I’m ready to spill its secrets!
