Shall We Glow?

First of all I'd like to apologize for the fact that when faced with an empty title box I seem to inexplicably fill it with a pun or childish alliteration. I can't seem to help it.

Now onto the glow - this is really quite expensive - $115 for 50ml. It's not going to dress up your vanity at all either - it's utilitarian and simple looking, with plain block lettering. When I spend huge amounts of money on a product, I usually like to know it. It's a smallish company, without a lot of advertising or fancy logos - most of the products look like lab vials and jars, and don't particularly shout luxury beauty product.

Regardless, the Dr Sebagh Deep Exfoliating Mask is incredible. I mean REALLY incredible. As in you look about 30% prettier after you use it. That's not a scientific fact, but it's what it feels like. It uses Azelaic, Lactic and Glycolic acid to exfoliate deeply without stripping the skin too severely - speeding cell turnover, letting your moisturizer sink deeper and work more effectively, and giving an incredible smoothness, brightness and glow to skin. It fades scars, lightens sun damage and smooths imperfections. Countless products tout these effects - this is one of the few that actually delivers on them.

Dr Sebagh is the French plastic surgeon who helped make Botox famous. You'd think that if you made your name with Botox, you wouldn't release a product that was this effective - it seems counterintuitive. But be thankful he did. I have ridiculously sensitive skin that gets dried out and stripped by most every exfoliant - only this can give me such powerful results without any redness or peeling. It comes in two strengths - the regular and sensitive, both of which my skin tolerates well.

It goes on cool and smooth, in a thin layer, and you can leave it on up to about 10 minutes - wipe off with warm water, and follow up with a richer, more healing moisturizer than usual, preferably a serum too (see below!), to really pull all the moisture deep into those cleaned up pores. 

This is of course all hypothetical, because I certainly can't afford this anytime soon, but I'm glad that there's a product out there that actually begins to live up to it's price - compared to the professional treatments you would need to achieve this kind of result, it's almost affordable. If you're a glass half full sort of person. I try to be:)
